  • Fantastic Condo and Stay!

    "Our family has rented this unit for nine years now. My young grandson was 5 months old during his first stay here. He is now 8 years old and told me that we can NOT stay at any other condo...ever! So out of the mouths of babes...this condo is superb. Our entire family loves this condo. We are looking forward to our tenth anniversary stay! Working with the owner is a pure delight. She is most accommodating and caring. The unit speaks for itself in the photos...yet, the condo is more gorgeous in person. The Gulf view from the large lanai is inspirational...where I do a lot of writing. The furniture on the condo is beautiful and comfortable. Everything is convenient within the unit...laundry room, current appliances, beautiful kitchen/work area. Bedrooms are nicely decorated and comfortable...the whole place envelopes you with a warm and inviting welcome each time you enter it. The pool is great...well maintained and lots of furniture to lounge in as the kids swim. The pathway to the beach is short and sweet...giving you a view of the natural state of the island and then miles and miles of a sandy beach filled with endless seashells. The condo has a beach storage enclosure filled with beach chairs and pool items. The island offers all kinds of activities and this condo is close to the hub of the island. I highly recommend this unit to everyone; the owner is a gem to work with at all times."

  • Relaxing

    "Great place to stay. We saw Manta Rays, Manatees, lots of dolphins right in front of our deck! We caught snook from the deck. The kids enjoyed looking for shells, snorkeling, and swimming. We all came back with a tan. Be aware of the sand fleas, though. They ate my husband and oldest daughter up!"

  • Sanibel with kids/grandkids

    "6d was a great condo to rent. We enjoyed the closeness to the beach. The only things that needs improved is the Internet.........very, very, very slow:("

  • Best POOL home w/BEACH proximity

    "Cathy & I enjoyed our stay at Desert Rose. The home is amazing, well maintained & beautifully decorated. The beds are comfortable and the space is huge. The outside area is a great place to relax and enjoy time, any time of the day or night. The screened in lanai keeps out the critters and the bugs at bay. The BEACH!!! The BEST PART for our experience was the provided BEACH CART which allowed us to haul all our gear with little effort to the beach. The beach itself is an excellent area which is only 2 blocks away, or actually 7 houses from the driveway!!!  The beach has direct access at the end of the street. No need to go ‘down the way’ to get to the beach. Just walked out – onto the sand *with a foot wash right there* and enjoy the water immediately. Our 9# MinPin, Leo, enjoyed the stay. The walks along the neighborhood and up and down the beach in search of Gulf/Ocean treasures left by the gentle waves is something he misses dearly (as do we). Being that we live on the East Coast near the ocean, we don’t have a local area where dogs are permitted to be on the beach. KEEP IN MIND, Dogs ARE allowed on LEE County beaches, as long as they are on a leash (and bring a bag in case (s)he does their business). With Publix close by, it was GREAT to get to Desert Rose without a lot of food baggage to haul. We went next door and stocked up our NEST with supplies and stock. There is a GREAT kitchen with about EVERYTHING you’d need there for your use. The LEMON/CITRUS press there was magnificent, once I googled how to use it.  The POOL is EXCELLENT in being so clean and refreshing (AND HEATED TOO!!!). The deck area around the pool is greatly decorated and relaxing to enjoy. We were surprised to learned that the owner lives on-site (as the live-in Super, as he said it) in a ground floor addition, but once we realized we had privacy and seclusion at the home, it was relaxing and enjoyable. We DID miss the performance Skip does at a local establishment Sunday morning, but look forward to watching him play his music on our next visit. **Oh, did I tell you? We BOOKED our NEXT vacation in November, before we left for home to the East Coast. Thank You Skip, for sharing your home with us on our bi-annual vacations in 2016. PEACE & Be Safe"
