About Kim Obrien
Kim has been coming to Sanibel as early as she can remember! We began bringing our three boys down to the island in 2007 and have enjoyed our stays so much that we decided to purchase. It is our goal to be permanent residents of the island, so until that time arrives we have decided to share our home and our love for the island with those who have the same level of appreciation! When we are not enjoying the island ourselves we can be found in Chicago Il with our three boys who keep us incredibly busy. Outside of school, we are usually at a hockey rink, thus the house name 'BreakAway'.
Why Kim Obrien chose Sanibel
We have been looking to purchase on the island for the last 5 years. We were quiet specific regarding location, we wanted to be very close to the beach and also have easy access on and off the island as well as being so close to town, restaurants, shopping etc. This was the perfect location!
What makes this House unique
We fell in love with the architecture and style of the home. We love an open floor plan which allows for lots of space and easy entertaining. We are so close to the beach and everything Sanibel has to offer. The pool area and outdoor shower is absolutely fantastic for getting all the sand off after a long day shelling or swimming in the Gulf!

I had the honor of staying at BreakAway with my family February, 2017. What an incredible vacation. Kim has done a spectacular job of providing a home that is beautifully decorated, comfortable, fully equipped and goes above and beyond to ensure your every need is fulfilled. It came to my attention that the gas grille was not working properly so I called Kim. Within 3 hours a brand new top of the line grille was provided, well in time for dinner!! The pool area is private, sunny and perfect for family frolicking. My family has been coming to Sanibel for 50 years and I have to say that BreakAway is one of our all time favorites. Thanks Kim for enabling us to make some exceptional memories in this beautiful vacation home. We will be back!!
Thank you for the wonderful review. We love ensuring our guests have an incredible experience. Sanibel is a beautiful place to create lifelong memories. The home you choose to stay in should be perfect in every way and I am glad that BreakAway served its purpose! We would love to have you back!!
Comfortable private home
This house was exactly what we were looking for. Very clean, private, on a quiet street. The pool was a great addition! The house was so welcoming when we walked in. There was even a bottle of wine waiting for us upon arrival! The only things that could have been improved: the mattress in the pink guest room was saggy and the tv in the blue bedroom only allowed limited channels. The red tide didn’t affect as much as we were expecting and we were so thankful for the beautiful pool. Thank you for sharing your home with us!
Perfect for family reunion in June
Kim was amazing and accommodating, from information gathering to periodic questions to speedy responses after arrival. We celebrated my sister’s birthday, 6 of us flew in from across the country. Three of us shared the twin bed room, and giggled and reminisced of sister times growing up. The pool was a perfectly secluded get away. We appreciated the quick walk to the beach, thank you for the beach chairs and so many towels!!! We loved the convenient location, easy walk to some places, and a convenient lyft ride to restaurants and shopping. I walked to the lighthouse in the mornings, sometimes through the neighborhood, sometimes along the beach. Truly a paradise and a perfect restful retreat.
Thanks for making almost a miracle. As we get older, it’s harder to carve out time to get together. Sanibel was an ideal location. Thank you Kim for making dreams come true. I doubt we will be so lucky for the planets to align (although we did have a full moon!) for another sibling vacation, but our week at BreakAway in Sanibel will be a tough (impossible) act to follow. Many blessings on all who are lucky enough to have a vacation like ours.
Great beach home!
Perfect for our beach getaway! The house was nice and the pool was refreshing. All linens (including beach towels!) were provided and the kitchen was also well stocked to make family meals. Would definitely come again!
Great home and pool. We will be back.
Great for the whole family!
Enjoyed our stay.
This was a perfect place to stay for a family with children. There was easy access to the beach and the pool was perfect for the kids. The landscaping around the home was good for taking pictures and provided privacy. We enjoyed our stay.
Removed, and only seemingly remote.
There are no stoplights on Sanibel or Captiva, and there are no buildings taller than the tallest palm tree. Both serve as a reminder of what happens when we leave well enough alone. For generations, people have escaped over the three-mile causeway to a different pace of life – one that includes ungroomed white sand beaches filled with thousands of shells, great seafood restaurants, unmatched wildlife viewing and a family focused village atmosphere where only the absolutely necessary parts of civilization are included. Our home is ideally located 4 houses from the Middle Gulf Drive, cross the street and enjoy the beach! We are ideally located, close to everything... the local grocery store, 25 miles of bike / running paths, the best restaurants in town offering fresh surf and turf and everything in between as well as unparalleled shopping!
