We really wanted to like this place. It's location is fantastic and the bright-colored exteriors of the buildings are alluring. The emails we received in advance of our arrival were also very welcoming and helpful. Unfortunately, we were very disappointed once we go there. Our efficiency unit by the pool was poorly maintained -- including a bedroom door that came right off its hinges and a very rusty shower caddy in the tiny shower. Service at the front desk was perfunctory. Too bad. The place has such promise.

Cottage right on the road so a lot louder than anticipated, especially with not so much traffic, the A/C did not work, but it was across the street from the beach and there was a marina, although beware, they do not have fishing tackle to rent, which seemed absurd not only bc they say they do on the website but also because they sit on the bay...had to drive 10 minutes to rent a rod. Nice cottage, but really pricey (I thought) - paying for location, I guess...closer to the Captiva restaurants than the Sanibel center. Don't think I'd go back...seems there are many more options and something must be a better value.

Quaint, casual, friendly. Great location. Convenient access to private, beautiful beach. I would take my family here again.
