Perfect house right on the beach!!

  • 5 of 5

The beach, palm trees, and house were the perfect place for our family to vacation. Even though you have a busy street behind the house, it is situated so that once you are in the home or on the beach, you feel like you're somewhat isolated. We walked the beach, collected shells, saw stingrays, found sand dollars, saw turtle tracks to new nests, and we had dolphins just off the beach. We also had fun using the kayak and paddle board. The house is easy access to grocery, restaurants, shopping and activities. It was the best beach yard compared to other properties in either direction. Thank you for the great stay!!

Beautiful Beach Front Getaway

  • 5 of 5

If you want true beach front living this is the place to stay, from the minute you step out the door your feet are in the soft white sand, and your steps way from the warm water of the Gulf of Mexico, it doesn't get better than that. Such a comfortable place to stay, I was with my 3 girlfriends and we had plenty of room to spread out. We felt very spoiled to have our own beach, hang out under the palm trees and soak in the warm ocean water. We thank Claudia and Nick for sharing there slice of heaven, and hope to visit again soon.

It was a perfect location right on the beach. Our family of 5 was very comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

The beach was beautiful and the home was very accommodating. We were able to walk across the street to the grocery store and buy our groceries for the stay. Near the grocery store was a marina with a dolphin cruise where we were able to go out and see dolphins, a manatee, and collect some shells. There was also a dolphin who frequently swam right out front the beach house. People were fishing right off the shore catching various fish and small lemon sharks. The owners were very nice and even cut up a coconut from their tree for us to try. There were plenty of shells to collect and the water was warm. My son had fun trying to catch the lizards and crabs. It was a great experience for our family. Thank you!

Property SO CLOSE to the water

  • 5 of 5

We had the best vacation! This property was so perfect in every way, as well as the amazing owners! The beach was very quiet and really felt like your own little paradise. Our dog had a wonderful time too! I have nothing but good things to say about this rental and the owners! We never left the home once. We enjoyed every second on the patio and the beach. Hands down, we will be back soon!

Gulf Front Property - you're on the beach!
Car: not necessary

There is something for everybody - whether you just want to relax on the beach, cool drink in hand or plan a more action packed day ranging from fishing, deep sea fishing, jet ski, kayak, paddle boarding, biking, walking, beach combing, bird watching - to name a few.

There is lots to explore: Lovers Key National Park is just around the corner with its gorgeous beaches and trails. A popular day trip are the beautiful islands of Sanibel and Captiva. The surrounding areas offer great shopping, and the world's best golf courses.

After such a busy day you can enjoy watching the sunset from your Beach Front Apartment.

This is the stuff that dreams are made of!
