    a guest from Erie, CO recommends this vacation rental

    This house is just as described. Spacious, conveniently located and walking distance to the beach. The lanai and the pool were are favorite places to hang out. Plenty of pool toys and beach equipment were provided. Also appreciated being able to Park in the garage. We thoroughly enjoyed our month in paradise.
    There were a few maintenance issues and they were very quickly addressed. SBL vacations was all around wonderful to work with. I would recommend them whether you choose this house or some other property that they manage to rent.

    We found this Middle Gulf Drive home very comfortable. It was a very convenient location for accessing the beach and biking the island. The view from the deck overlaps a pond and provides a tropical setting.

    a guest from Strongsville, OH recommends this vacation rental

    We always enjoy Sanibel, although this year we had to deal with Covid 19. House was as represented in photos. Pool area very enjoyable. Layout of house a little strange, with the 4th bathroom isolated on second floor. Nice roomy kitchen and loved the large lanai. A bit of pruning on rear foliage would enhance the view. A few very minor issues were addressed promptly by SBL staff.

    • Manager Responded on 11/21/2020

      Dear Karen, We are glad to hear you and your family enjoyed your stay with us at Fantasea. We have passed on your recommendations to our owners and we look forward to the next time you and your family decide to book with us at SBL!

    Kim D recommends this vacation rental

    Our arrival was after dark. When we awoke the next morning and opened our blinds, we were immediately taken by the beautiful greenery and river flowing directly behind the home. The glass doors in the living room open up all the way, so you have the immediate indoor to outdoor living. We thought that was one of the coolest things about the house. When you walk out to the patio you overlook the inviting pool and connecting hot tub.The home is beautifully decorated from top to bottom. Beds are very comfortable, Two master suites with walk in closets, two other bedrooms on the main floor and one down below. Huge beautiful kitchen with a gas stove, I love to cook so that was a plus. They have a Countertop spice rack Tower with any spice you would ever need. There is also a grill off the patio, which we used. The other awesome thing is you are a very short walk to the beach!They provide a wagon for you to load all your possessions to take to the beach, very convenient. White soft sandy beaches await, full of sea shells for your picking. Very quite neighborhood, property landscaping immaculate.
    Its all about the details, they have pretty much thought of everything you would ever need. Very relaxing trip, we will definitely be back!

We love this perspective of the indoor & outdoor living and I am sure that other renters will love reading the feedback you have left here! We hope we are able to help you plan another trip to Sanibel next year!
