  • 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."

  • 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! <*)))><"

  • Wonderful Cottage

    "My mother and I visited Sanibel Island for the first time. We found "Driftwood Inn" cottage to be quite charming. Bridget was extremely helpful from the first contact until our departure. We arrived on Friday afternoon, and found the cottage easily. The locks on the door were electronic (handy and convenient), so we did not have to keep up with a key to the house. It was very clean and tidy. There were extra towels, wash clothes, and blankets. Outside on the screened in lanai, comfortable table and chairs. A beach wagon, umbrella, and chairs were provided. There were also "scoopers" to use to look for shells! We did call the property manager for a new umbrella, because the one there was broken. The property manager brought one to us the next day. We are so thankful for the umbrella! The bathrooms were clean and orderly. The floor is made of tile, so it stays cool. AC throughout the cottage, making it heavenly when you come in from the beach. We did use the laundry facilities out back. The detergent was provided. We didn't have time to use the grills or outdoor furniture, but they were convenient to the house. The kitchen is perfect! There were plenty of dishes, detergent, and pans to use for cooking. Coffee pot, toaster, and microwave were all working. There wasn't a supply of simple condiments (salt, pepper, etc), but we managed without it for a few days. The oven cooked a little warmer than the temperature it was set to, but we figured that out after our first round of extra crispy cookies. TV was small, but we didn't come to watch the TV. Overall, I would recommend this cottage (#1) to anyone looking to come to the island for a nice stay! The walk to the beach is less than 2 blocks. Most of it is shaded by the trees, and of course flat and paved. The wagon was such a big help, so that we didn't have to carry anything. The "deeded" becah was nice, because there were not a lot of people around the area we were staying. I would recommend renting bikes to travel the island. We did drive around the island, but the bikes were way more fun. Thank you Bridget for letting us use your cottage! We are looking forward to coming back to Sanibel Island soon!"
