Watch out for the stingrays! Small convenience store across the main road. Easy access, lots of parking space. Friendly neighbors, relaxing quiet atmosphere. Nice small pool. Food stores on the island are expensive, a drive towards the mainland will pay off. We enjoyed our stay very much and will come back in the future. Excellent service by ITrip Sanibel Captiva Vacation Management LLC. One advise: Have a look at the TV package. Very limited selection of channels available. "Groeten" from The Netherlands

We did replace a defective can opener with a new one and left it there. Thought the pool area was a little small for the size of the Community. Disappointed with the tree trimming schedule; they left the palm fronds in the parking spaces for two weeks so the reserved parking went out the window. Our unit was exceptional and the owners should be proud of what they have done. We appreciated the additional two hours to check out because we had a late afternoon flight out. John, thank you for everything, you and your staff were very responsive and helpful. We are reviewing our schedule for next year. Trippe and Landa Matthes
