Watched the manatees roll in the canal, took a boat ride around the island and played with the dolphins, saw nesting ospreys, alligators at Ding Darling, saw sunrise at the beach. We visited the Sanibel Farmers Market – they have great food! Bowmans Beach is a peaceful change of scene. We loved the relaxing beach lounging and the bikes to get everywhere. Nothing like a slow day on island time!!
Had a wonderful time!
Enjoyed the manatees from the patio, walked to the beach where we saw many dolphins, and a young fisherman catch a stingray! Lots of beautiful flowers and wildlife. Had an alligator close down a part of the outdoor mall we were shopping at! Took some enjoyable bike rides to both north and south Sanibel, went to Captiva by car several times – enjoyed a sunset cruise there where we were able to have a glimpse of North Captiva island also! We will definitely be back!
Beautiful hot and sunny weather. We walked to the beach every day. Saw manatees out our back door! Loved the Mad Batter, Island Cow, and Sweet Melissa’s! Will remember our baby loving the warm ocean water. Our first time to Sanibel – we see why people come here over and over – our stay here was perfect!
The beach access is great, beach items to borrow were great, and the mangos from the tree out back were delicious. We enjoyed our stay in Sanibel!
We had a great time at the property. Lots of wonderful memories from the island. Sanibel is a beautiful place to spend quality time with the family and we are thankful that we found this property available that provided everything we needed to enjoy our stay in Sanibel.
Perfect hot and sunny weather!Captiva cruises to Cabbage Key, Beach, Ate as much seafood as we could handle and relaxed. The Bubble Room! Saw lots of enormous lizards and manatees. We had a wonderful stay and we will be back.
Weather was hot!! We built pillow forts, enjoyed the back porch. Loved the ice cream shop, apples and seeing dolphins!
Thank you for a lovely vacation. The close beach access is perfect and we really enjoyed having towels, beach chairs, and a cart for all. Perfect sunset on our last day!
Iguanas! Manatees! Sting Rays!
Amazing to be this close to nature!
Sunny weather! Went on a dolphin cruise, found shells, watched the sunrise and sunset in Captiva. Loved visiting the beach at night. Loved riding bikes around the island.
Hot weather! Loved the beach, nature trails and restaurants. Saw dolphins, live sea urchins, live sand dollars, and live starfish. Our special moment was seeing the rainbow over the canal. It was an amazing vacation!
