We LOVED this home!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this home immensely!! This home provided more than we ever expected and provided a relaxing, comfortable, homey atmosphere to enjoy our visit in Florida. This home is in the perfect location to access Sanibel Island and many other enjoyable locations. We could have spent our entire vacation here and definitely hope to come back in the future!! Our children enjoyed the pool, the yard and grounds are beautiful and the home is comfortable, and provides over and above what you would expect from a vacation rental home. We were so blessed to have had the opportunity to visit Florida and stay in your home. Thank you!!
