“Great value and country charm-Nov 03”
Reviewed January 5, 2004

We stayed here in early November, 2003, the owners was very nice and the lodging was quaint. the furnishings had a country cottage feeling, a small swimming pool was available right through our sliding glass doors. An excellent value for Sanibel lodgings.

This was a perfect place for an inexpensive vacation on the island. Our son was getting married on the island and we were searching for an affordable place to stay seeing this was not really planned into our vacation budget for the year. This place was charming and quiet! The pool is just three steps from each of the five units and it felt as though we had the pool to ourselves. We had other family members renting another unit and it was great being only steps away from eachother. The owners were very friendly and went out of their way to see that we had whatever we needed. Don't forget to sign the wall before you leave. We stayed in Unit 2 which has a king bed, full kitchen and dining area, sofabed and charming decor. We would stay there again!

Stayed here winter 2002. Great for kids, only 5 units & all surround the pool. Your sliding door open directly to pool, so great for families with kids-you can be inside doing somethign else while still supervising the kids at the pool.
They did an unbelieveable job of cleaning the rooms when peopel leave- and all day cleaning.
Gulf is across the street- you have to walk between other places on a small icky path. All in all, a great place & great prices.
