If Tripadvisor would allow it, we would give a 4.5 stars. Our entire family loved the location, so close to the beach, major shell-combing opportunities everywhere, no other close-by hotels, in a quiet residential area. The amenities are nice (two 25 yardish pools, beach chairs, umbrellas, bikes - all included) and adequate. We did not use, but they have a couple/few laundry facilities, kayaks included, a small fitness center. This is a do-it-yourself type of place, with staff present and available, but not generally visible - it was a nice balance for us on Sanibel. The unit we rented was clean, with brand new towels / kleenex / etc in the unit at the start. The only downer was the latent perfumey smell inside the unit when we first got there, which did not seem to dissipate even with windows open. There was a beautiful pileated woodpecker in the evergreen closest to the beach. Note that it is clear on the website that these are low rise cabin-like units (with metal roofs), and some of them are connected so you hear fellow renters a bit more than the typical. The outdoor screen rooms are fantastic. One of the pools is available late night. Two air conditioner units and two fans give you multiple cooling options. Lots and lots of repeat renters should help you understand this is a nice place.
