"Great home! Owner is wonderful to rent with. Stocked with everything you could possibly need. Short walk to the beach. Any and all beach equipment in the garage with cart for easy transport! We have stayed multiple times and plan to stay again in the future!"

"Our family enjoyed our stay at this home very much. We found it clean, well furnished and with lots of toys for our family to use. There were several bikes and two kayaks one of which was a two person kayak. The location is easy on and off the island. We have stayed at the West end before and will never do that again.
IT is close to the beach and shopping. We recommend this home to anyone. The owners are easy to work with and our deposit was returned in 10 days no problem."

"We selected Seaside Rendezvous for our girls' reunion. I was the perfect house and location for us. There were seven of us, but we could have had even more. There was a ton of room and every modern convenience you could wish for. the rooms were spacious and the beds were comfortable. The house is mere steps from the most beautiful sandy beach with tons of shells to satisfy any shell collector. The house had two kitchens and three places to eat. We spent most of the time on the huge screened in porch off the dining room that was surrounded by mature landscaping. The pool and hot tub were both enormous and screened in. There was even an elevator! Near to everything but with plenty of privacy. A truly idyllic place to stay!"

"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 …
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!
