About Brian Eagleston

Hi! We are Brian and Anita. We have 3 school aged children and love to travel. We first became interested in VRBO and Home Away by using it to visit other destinations. Having our own vacation rentals has become a passion for us. The picture is from Anita's parents' 60th Wedding Anniversary in 2016! We stay at the home from time to time with our large family so that we can all be together. As such, we truly feel that it is our home away from home for us and hope that you feel that way too!

Brian Eagleston purchased this house in 2016

Why Brian Eagleston chose Sanibel

Anita's parents honeymooned on Sanibel 60 years ago! It has been a family favorite since her brother and sisters and she were young. The laid back atmosphere of island life combined with the comforts of modern living make Sanibel the perfect place to vacation or live year round. This property is exceptional. It is located a short bike ride or drive to the world famous Bowman's Beach on Sanibel. Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge is literally right across the street from the home. The home itself is beautiful with views of the secluded, natural beauty of Sanibel from every room.

What makes this house unique

Bike paths are located across the road from the home and span almost the entire length of the island. Captiva Island is only a few minutes bike ride or drive to the North of the home.

Great, well maintained home with a nice pool

  • 5 of 5

The home was phenomenal for the price, describing why is difficult due to the many facets that make it so. Its location is quiet and very close to a beach (not more than biking distance), the kitchen is sizeable and has everything easily available (and labeled), and the bedrooms are well furnished!

Amazing time!

  • 5 of 5

The home was beautiful and very clean. The space was perfect for our family with a large, central main living space for gatherings at meal time. It was very close to the beach... our teenagers walked and biked there several times during the stay. The space downstairs was accessible from the inside and perfect for the kids and their cousins to have space to hang out together away from the adults. The hot tub was ENORMOUS! We will be booking this house again next year!

Magical Sanibel

  • 3 of 5

Our family (5 adults & 5 kids) enjoyed your beautiful home and especially the pool and hot tub. Thank you.

The house worked but some notables as follows:

The home and pool were not clean upon arrival, but a few hours of work for three adults and we were all set.

Only two ankle twists on the unprofessional / level front sidewalk approaching the very large stair climb to the front door (which should have been pictured on VRBO).

We got used to the pool patio construction materials in the yard, ugly black screen fence in the pool area (which was not shown in the VRBO photos) , large unorganized pile of toys, broken buckets, tattered inflatables in he pool area, tvs that did not work, burnt out light bulbs, a king bed with no night stands after a few days.

We have used VRBO many times with no issues. This experience was different.

Owner's Response: Thanks for providing us your thoughts. If you remember, during your stay we responded to all of your concerns and even offered to have the house cleaned again. When you called you were rude to my wife. You broke our refrigerator and refused to admit your responsibility. As for the pool inflatables, they were from prior guests and we felt that future guests may want to use them. My wife said that you told her that your family was havng a wonderful time at the home and thought that it was great and that they would have been very angry if they had known that you were on the phone criticizing the home. Pool screen is black. The home is very clean and in excellent repair.

The house was very nice. The furniture was clean as well as all baths and beds. The owners were very helpful and helped us with our concerns. We had a great time in pool and wonderful spa. You will love it!!!
