“Excellent base for reunion of old friends”
Reviewed 16 April 2018 for a stay in March 2018

We booked the house for a reunion with some old friends, and it worked perfectly. The house offered a welcome respite from what turned out to be very hot weather, and the very private and lush back yard and pool allowed us to expand our activity and associated stuff - toys, swim gear, etc. - without concern for having to do a daily tidy as you would have to do at the beach or shared condo. We booked bicycles for the week, and managed a few outings. The proximity to Periwinkle with it's restaurants and retail was fantastic, particularly given the age of our children and their relative energy levels for extensive biking. Ralph was a great host and hugely helpful with any and all queries that we had. I would happily arrange to stay again on our next trip to Sanibel. Excellent value.

“Great”

Ralph made sure everything was taken care of and called to check up. Really enjoyed the pool and grill. We usually stay on beach but nice to have quiet retreat. Definitely would return.

This great house is in a wonderful location. It is very well maintained ,decorated and nicely appointed.
The house would is large enough for a good size family and would please most guest.

The heated pool is very nice as is the pool area. You will have a lot of privacy !

The owner is very involved and goes out of his way to ensure the guest has everything they need.

This is a great place to relax.

The super TV set up should please any family.

“"Beautiful" is the right word for this house”

Beautiful house, very clean and all very well maintained! Beautiful neighborhood! Beautiful heated pool and sun deck. Beautiful yard and tropical gardens. This house has all the comforts that one can desire. From an entertainment center with a large 3-D TV to a secluded pool and sun deck where one can enjoy the sun in total privacy. The place is fabulous!
Given that Sanibel is far removed from the glow of city lights, the night sky is dark and rich. One night I jumped into the heated pool and marveled at the stars that sparkled above. The warm pool waters embraced me while I listened to the sweet sound of swaying palm leaves. It was a surreal experience! The house is beautifully landscaped with tropical plants that provide total privacy to the back yard, the pool and the sun deck. The house is close to Sanibel's best beaches. The tropical sunsets over the waters of the Gulf of Mexico are extraordinarily beautiful. I highly recommend this house for a family vacation or even for a romantic holiday. It's owner is very kind and helpful.

Thank you Aldo for your wonderful review. The fact that you describe the house as "Beautiful!" and gave it a 5-star rating is especially meaningful to me since you come from the heart of Italy, a country that exemplifies appreciation for beauty and the arts. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you come back soon. Thanks again.
