"Jean is a wonderful host to a delightful cottage on Sanibel's East End. The cottage was absolutely the perfect place to stay for a month. It felt like home. Not a condo experience, instead, the cottage feels like living on the island. It is well stocked with everything and Jean is friendly, there to help or answer questions, and very accomodating, but then you are free to explore. You are easy walking distance to the bayside. Low tide especially is a good time to walk all around the tip of the island, see the fishing pier, the lighthouse, and over to the Gulf. There is direct access to the Gulfside, across the street. It is a further walk, but certainly easy enough. You can also walk to restaurants (breakfast at the Lighthouse Cafe or lunch at the East End Deli are both good) and shops. There are two nice bikes to help explore further. The pool area is close by, well maintained, and not busy.
The back porch bedroom is quite cozy with a beautiful view of tropical plants. It really is a second bedroom just fine. The master bed is very comfortable. The air conditioner works well. The kitchen is small, yes, but cute and easy to use and well-equipped. The front porch is perfect for coffee in the morning, but so is the tropical breakfast nook. Really, you can't go wrong. I wanted to stay forever. If you are looking for a home away, Casa Blanca cottage is perfect!"
