Fabulous Place!

This place was everything I hoped for and more. Quiet, clean, immediate beach access, friendly staff. Screened porches were fabulous. We'll definitely come back here!

Lovely island getaway

Unfortunately, was on Sanibel during one of the coldest spells in 15 years. Still managed to walk the beach bundled up.
