Terrific house and location
We loved this house and location. The house is like new and very spacious, the boat was excellent and the short cruise to the river enjoyable. We would definitely stay there again.
Thank you very much for letting us stay at your villa.
It was very clean & we had a lovely welcome hamper.
The boat was brill & everyone loved the pool.
Perfect tranquil week.
This house is a great place to take your family and enjoy a lovely vacation. The boat was definitely a great addiction to our stay. The kids enjoyed the well kept pool, we enjoyed how well prepared and cleaned the house was when we arrived. I would highly recommend coming here with family and have a worry free vacation. We hope to come back soon.
Fabulous home away from home with added extras!
We booked this villa after looking for so long at many different locations. We wanted a villa which was well placed for eating out and with easy access to Sanibel and Captiva, which we have visited several times before.
We booked flights into Orlando as we found a price which was too good to turn down and the journey down took around 2 1/2 - 3 hours which was an easy drive.
The villa was amazing. When we arrived we found a large supply of groceries for us to be able to make breakfast or a smack which was a lovely and unexpected surprise as it was about 10pm when we arrived at the villa.
The rooms are all extremely spacious, very well-furnished and there are so many extras which you don't find with most villa rentals.
The cupboards contained many basic ingredients, coffee, sugar, tea, salt and pepper plus many other ingredients. There were two cupboards full of towels from hand towels to beach towels which meant we had a lot more space in our suitcases 😀. The kitchen contains every gadget or utensil you could ever need, again so different to most rental accommodation.
The beds were extremely comfortable and the bathrooms were great too.
Outside the pool and deck area were spacious and fully stocked with many chairs and very comfortable seating and sun loungers.
There are fishing rods and cool boxes which are kept in the garage. Remember though if you plan to fish you must obtain a license from Walmart. I think we paid $30 for a week. I think under 16 were free.
Now the piece de la resistance! The boat. Wow. The boat is beautiful. It is in fantastic condition and we all loved trips out on the boat into the river (that's about 15 mins from the dock) and over to Sanibel and Captiva. On our first morning Captain Tom rang and arranged to come over straight away. He took my husband and our son out on the boat to instruct them and show them the ropes. They went to the river (and saw a dolphin !) My husband was confident after a couple of hours and we were shown how to read the maps and taught boat etiquette. We took the boat out several times and saw many dolphins on our trip over to Captiva. They were everywhere! The fuel is quite expensive so allow around $200 to fill up.
We love this area and we would not hesitate to return to the villa next time we are over. Thank you for letting us stay in your gorgeous home.
This was one of our best Vacations to Florida. The house is exactly as described, everything is in great shape and very tastfully decorated. Many rentals I have been to were very un-eqipped this is truly a home away from home. The boating was outstanding and so was the boat, you will not find too many rentals with a boat like this. It takes some time to get out to the gulf but well worth the trip head up past the sanibel lighthouse and go around the first bend for som of the best beaches around, there are a few spots that are 4 feet deep up to about 25 yards off shore which was perfect for anchoring. Highly recommended rental.... Enjoy
Spacious Family Home
This home was all we were hoping for. It was clean, spacious, comfortable and was equipped with everything we needed There is a huge stock of extra towels and bed linen on hand (extremely easy to keep washed with the fabulous quick washing and drying machines the houses all have). The pool area was lovely with plenty of space and furniture to relax on. The Internet was very efficient which is an absolute must when travelling with teenagers.
We had so much fun when using the boat, the highlight being seeing the dolphins jumping next to the boat! Captain Tom was so helpful with his instruction when learning how to handle the boat and in the days that followed when we had questions.
The house is well situated for travelling to various locations. we spent a day at Busch Gardens, went to Miami for the fireworks on New Years Eve and visited many of the shopping malls. Sannibel is a must with lovely beaches and restaurants nearby. When booking and with subsequent questions the reply from the owner was always prompt and was easy and friendly to deal with. We would definitely recommend this house.
