  • Wonderful Vacation Spot on Sanibel

    "My husband and I brought our 6 month old daughter to Florida for the month of November, 2015 to visit all our family and decided to stay on Sanibel where it was quiet! The house was perfect for us -- had enough room for the three of us and extra space when my sister-in-law or mother-in-law would stay with us! We loved the newly updated kitchen and back deck with grill. The yard was a great size and we took advantage of the bikes when we could and rode to the fish market. Traffic on the island was only bad in the evenings with all of the people leaving the island, but we thoroughly enjoyed the location of the house because it was close to the causeway, but yet still in a quiet community. We utilized the private beach, which was a short 5 minute drive to get to and would sometimes just walk to the bay beach side to sit by the water. The house itself needs a few, very minor updates (nails protruding on deck and loose curtain rods - which my handy father-in-law fixed. We have a small child so we're more cognizant of these things!) As well, we didn't need our baby monitor when we slept in the master and had her in the other bedroom as there isn't a lot of sound barriers. Overall, wonderful experience and the owners were good to deal with. *Just a note for the owners for ease of future renters: stock a few more cleaning cloths and dish towels :)) Sincerely, Travelers from Canada"

  • Stunning beach house

    "Perfect for our special holiday. The house was beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and was well equipped with everything you could need. Linda and Marvin the owners were lovely and very helpful. Short walk to the beautiful beach or bars and restaurants.. We love the Island, so relaxing. Wonderful walks on the beach or nature reserves and bike rides on the excellent paths. Hope to return soon. Would highly recommend this property"

  • Our Home from Home in Paradise

    "When planning our return to Sanibel Island and considering where to stay it was a unanimous family decision to return to the Coconut Hideaway. The West Gulf Drive location in our opinion is the best on the island. It is an easy walk to the beach, a short drive or 20 minute cycle along Rabbit Road to Doc Ford’s (until it relocates!), and not far from Jerry’s or Bailey’s for the best fresh steak, fish and shrimp to cook yourself on the gas BBQ. This central location is perfect for shopping and restaurants along Periwinkle Way and in the other direction Captiva is only 30 minutes away by car at 30 MPH! The Mucky Duck and Bowman’s Beach is a must visit for sun set lovers, but on a clear evening the sunset from the local Beach Access #1 is just as beautiful. The Coconut Hideaway is a home from home – with everything you need for a very comfortable stay on this paradise island. For the social media addicts and those who want to keep in touch with their email and video web streams the free Internet access is more than adequate. What more can I say that I haven’t said before, except … ><(((*> WE’RE BACK! Back to the Sanibel Causeway, Sea Shells, Sun Sets, the Beaches and Gulf Sea Breeze. Back to Manatee, Egrets, Brown Pelican and soaring Osprey’s. Back to Doc Ford Red Snapper, Grouper, Mojito’s and Pizza at the Great White Grill. Back to provisions from Jerry’s and Bailey’s, and kayaking the Tarpon Bay Commodore Creek Trail. Back to cycling Ding Darling, Bailey Tract, Rabbit Road alligator alley and West Gulf Drive. Back to sunsets at Bowman’s, the Mucky Duck and Starbucks for a caffeine revive. Back to She Sells Sea Shells, Sanibel Lighthouse and an Island Cinema movie. Back to Among the Flowers for a detox and the coolest smoothie. Back to the Island Cow breakfast and Pinocchio’s Ice Cream – need I say why! Back to Jensen’s Marina where Manatee graze and Manta Ray fly. Back to boating the Pine Island Sound, from Port Sanibel Marina to Cayo Costa Beach. Back to spotting dolphin in the brackish waters breach. Back to cooling off in the pool and grilling steak ‘n’ shrimp to complete a perfect day. Back to the brief summer rain that bring tree frogs a chirping and out to play. Back at our Coconut Hideaway, our perfect borrowed home on this paradise isle. Then back home to the UK, Wokingham England, until the next time! <*)))><"

  • Our home away from home

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: This was our second year in this house. We like the quiet location. It has all the amenities that we want or need. The location gives us an opportunity to observe some of the wildlife of the island. This our resident alligator made several appearances. We almost constantly have a flock of ibis in the yard. Three bedrooms affords us the chance to have friends and family visit. We have truly found our ideal rental."
