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!!

Perfect for family reunion in June

  • 5 of 5

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!

  • 4 of 5

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!

Enjoyed our stay.

  • 4 of 5

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.

This house has everything you need for a wonderful vacation in a great location to experience the island. The pool is perfect and the beach is very close. You can rent bikes to get just about anywhere else you want to go!

Nice, quiet location

  • 5 of 5

Nice quiet area of Sanibel and a short walk to the beach. We did use and enjoy the pool much more than we thought, mainly due to windy conditions on the beach most of the days we were there. Very accommodating and easy rental process.

Car: recommended

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!
