"Search no further.  The pictures do not do this rental property justice.  It is a beautiful, spacious and immaculately clean home. Kevin, the home owner, is extremely trustworthy and a pleasure to work with.  He has paid much attention to detail in his home, and it was indeed a pleasure to vacation in this house this past June.  I wish I could have packaged it up and shipped it back to PA.  The layout was perfect for our family of 4 teenage girls. Everyone had their own space, and every door led to the beautiful, enclosed pool and spa area. Even though we hated to leave the house, we did venture out a lot to the many fabulous surrounding beaches....  All beat the New Jersey beaches hands down!  They were uncrowded and easy to get to.  The beach breeze was refreshing!  Wish I could have bottled it up somehow.  We even went as far as Sanibel and collected many souvenirs from the beach to bring home.  Restaurants and shopping are plentiful.... there is almost a Super Walmart on every corner...OK maybe a little exaggeration!  A fun time was had by all on this vacation.  I highly recommend this rental property.  I know I am going to regret that later on because you probably will rent the week I want!  I definitely plan on returning to the Shabreeze again and again.  It was one of my favorite vacation spots.  I am so happy Kevin was gracious enough to share his home with all of us.  You will not find a better spot to vacation in.  And that's the truth!"

"After a truly terrible trip getting to Florida from Nova Scotia- starting our vacation one day late due to flight cancellations - We arrived to sunshine at beautiful Shabreeze-set in a peaceful, private setting. The Villa was absolutely beautiful, perfect- spacious, comfortable, clean and well equipped. Even before arriving at Shabreeze our dealings with Kevin ( the owner) were honest and very helpful - he is the greatest! Our whole party of 7 adult friends from Nova Scotia truly loved and enjoyed our stay at "Shabreeze" and hope to return for a longer time. We loved the Villa, the beaches, the restaurants and not far away Spring Training Baseball (Tampa Bay) Stadium. We recommend Shabreeze and trust you have as wonderful a vacation as we did."

"When my sister announced that she was getting married, and wanted a destination wedding to "Sanibel Island" (Florida) we began our search for a place to stay immediately. We quickly found that Hotels/Motels were very expensive, and with a family of 5 eating out was not an option for 3 meals a day. I began searching -via- internet for a house to rent. I e-mailed many people, who owned vacation villas - in Florida. My favorite place was the "SHABREEZE" and was delighted when Kevin called me. We confirmed the reservations, which I felt a bit uneasy as we had to wire money to his bank account. We were nervous as so many people are looking to take advantage of others. Please rest assured if you are unsure about renting the "SHABREEZE", Kevin Pilkington is a very honest, caring, and organized person to deal with. He makes you feel at ease with phone calls, and makes himself very accessible and open to talk to. Plus, his amazing sense of humor - is terrific. You will love him!Not really knowing what to expect, my whole family arrived at "SHABREEZE", Grandparents, Bride, Groom, and the 5 of us, 3 of which are children ages 3,6,and 8. We opened the door to be welcomed by the MOST beautiful, well kept, clean and absolutely perfect home in Florida… the "SHABREEZE!" Everything that our hearts desired was waiting for us. We wanted for nothing !!! (Except for maybe a personal chef - Hee-hee).

One of my many favorite amenities were the beds they were so very, very comfortable. (I usually don't sleep well away from home, but at the "SHABREEZE" sleep was no problem.) While at the "SHABREEZE" we enjoyed only the finest amenities life has to offer, long walks around the very quiet area, and breakfast pool side. All the stresses of life disappeared while we were there. The “SHABREEZE" is tucked away off the busy path and hustle and bustle of Florida. IT IS THE BEST KEPT SECRET in FLORIDA! If you are looking for a relaxing quiet place to stay away from crowds "SHABREEZE" is the BEST place to go!!!!

I could write chapters more about "SHABREEZE" but I hope with this brief review, you feel confident about contacting Kevin to stay at "SHABREEZE".

"We have just returned from Shabreeze and had a fabulous time. The house was spacious enough for 10 people but private enough for each of us to have our own time. The pool got a lot of use from everyone - particularly the hot tub. The house was clean and well equipped with everything you could possibly need to have some great family meals together.
The house itself is in a beautiful secluded area but it is only 15 or 20 minutes to multiple beaches, restaurants and shopping. You feel as though you are the only person around but close enough to have a good time out and about. It is about 1 hour from Sarasota if you want to check out the greyhound races or Siesta Key and about 1 hour from Ft Myers if you want to check out the amazing white sand beaches there. There is a great seafood restaurant about 15 minutes from Shabreeze called the Lock and Key, and Englewood Beach (15 minutes) is great for swimming or shell collecting.
The house lived up to everything Kevin had promised and his customer service was excellent. It was great to chat over Skype and "see" each other. I would certainly recommend this property to my friends! We are looking forward to booking again."
DANIELLE & FAMILY, ROANOKE, VA (Stayed Dec'08-Jan'09)


"We had a fabulous time at Shabreeze - it offered our family of 6 adults and 2 children everything we were hoping for - privacy, comfort and ease!
The home itself is comfortable, well furnished and offers a real home away from home feel especially if you're traveling with a family. We were never crowded, shopping was nearby and convenient and cooking meals were easy and fun. The pool was a big hit - the whole family enjoyed that along with the grill which cooked up some yummy food!
The location was convenient for not only shopping for food but for the guys who fished daily and brought home their fresh catch for cooking. The kids enjoyed playing on the nearby beaches, we shopped, bought souvenirs and some days just slept in and enjoyed fun in the pool and nearby activities...we had some of the best family meals of our lives.
Shabreeze was a true escape from the real world and a step back into what really matters - sharing times with those you love - we had a GREAT time and will be back again! This may not be the place for you if you want in your face activity at every moment...but if you want a place to reconnect and truly entertain and have fun with your family/loved ones you will not be disappointed.
Your vacations are truly what you make them and we and Shabreeze made
this one GREAT! It was Awesome!! Kevin and Sharon followed through on everything - their home is beautiful, they were great hosts and so much fun to talk to!
Personally, we have never rented from anyone from the UK so it was a bit odd but it ended up being a great experience. They did not let us down and it's always nice to expand your horizons - we actually spoke by "Skype" once and after that felt totally at ease! Can't wait to call them and book again soon...they are really a hoot!!
As a family we actually bought a little trinket for the house (hope Kevin & Sharon don't mind) - it was our way of leaving a little piece of us behind for the next time and the next visitor to enjoy.
We can't wait to go back - hopefully we can add to our familiarity soon?? ---- Shabreeze...was just what we needed and Kevin & Sharon were perfect hosts!!!"

"Thank you so much Kevin & Sharon for allowing us to discover your wonderful home. Our whole party loved it. It was as you had promised, immaculately clean, well equipped, and beautifully furnished. We also found Shabreeze's location perfect. You have such a peaceful and tranquil location that gave us such privacy, but we still only had to drive 10-15mins to get to anything including superb restaurants and beaches. We in particular loved the beaches on Boca Grande. We are definitely wanting to return to Shabreeze again next year."

Awesome Vacation Rental

Review submitted: August 18, 2014   Date of arrival: March 15, 2014

This is an amazing vacation rental and Kevin is very accommodating from the moment we booked. The house is so beautiful and your kids will absolutely love the pool area. The house is well secluded and walks around the neighborhood were nice. The two master bedrooms are great for multi families and the kitchen is well stocked. It was a nice little extra touch that people who have visited there prior, have left some of their brochures and notes on where they had visited. Boca Grande was a high light of our trip with golf cart rentals. I hope this review helped. Kevin, great job and beautiful home!!!! (Wish I could live here year round)

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, people with disabilities, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing

Fantastic Villa - Very Helpful Owner

Review submitted: May 30, 2014   Date of arrival: April 19, 2014

"What can I say - all of the other reviewers are correct - this place is amazing, the owner Kevin is also amazing - helpful, accommodating, very accurate with all of his information. We were a family of 4 adults and 2 children and this villa gave us everything we needed. We loved the villa, the area and had a fantastic week here after the hustle and bustle of Orlando. We saw bobcats, eagles and lots more whilst out walking near the villa. The surrounding area is also amazing with Boca Grande and Gazparilla island being a couple of our faves. Thanks once again Kevin - when we return we will check out Shabreeze 1st to see if its available."
