    a guest from Crested Butte, Colorado recommends this vacation rental

    We left the beautiful mountains and snow of Colorado for a quiet, warm, family beach vacation. We got it! Favorite activity while at Crow’s Nest....every evening before sunset we took our binoculars up to the crow’s nest and watched the family of osprey grow and mature.

    • Manager Responded on 5/31/2022

      Debra, thank you for the wonderful review of Crow's Nest for the month of April! We are so happy you and your family enjoyed your vacation! What an incredible evening activity, I would love to see that for myself one day! We hope to welcome you back to Crow's Nest in the future!

    Gregory P from New Haven, CT recommends this vacation rental

    This is the second t9me for us in this house. We love it and have rented it for March, 2023. that said, there are a couple of things that we noted as "tired". Broken chairs, old and chipped cutlery, a kitchen faucet that sprays too far out getting you wet, ... general condition issues like that. Nothing big.

    • Manager Responded on 5/31/2022

      Mr. Pepe, Thank you for your feedback regarding your March stay at Crow's Nest! We appreciate and welcome any feedback to ensure a more enjoyable stay in the future! I hope you'll be happy to know the chairs have been replaced with brand new ones, the cutlery will be inspected much closer once the renters check out this month and we will replace if necessary. As for the kitchen faucet, that is something we have paid attention to and can assure you it is not leaking but may be a bit frustrating at times. The maintenance team will be checking the faucet out later this week as well and if it needs to be replaced, we will happily take care of that replacement. We are sorry that you were not overly satisfied with your stay, but we hope you are excited about the efforts and changes being made to ensure a much more enjoyable visit in the future. Crow's Nest is one of our most luxurious homes in our inventory, and we take great pride in maintaining the high quality we strive for. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you feel there is anything else that needs to be addressed!

    Alexis D from Asheville, NC recommends this vacation rental

    We couldn't have been happier with our stay at Crow's Nest. The home was perfect, well-appointed, and immaculate. The screened in pool area was spacious and beautiful! The neighborhood is lovely and quiet with kind neighbors. Everything was exactly as described and shown in photos. The property rental company was awesome, helpful, and super responsive. The location was perfect (about 10 minute walk to the beach or 5 minute bike ride). There is a path right by the house which goes to Bowman's Beach Park. We rented bikes from the Sanibel Vacations which was super convenient (highly recommend!). The home is equidistant from both downtown Captiva and Sanibel. We enjoyed that the Ding Darling Refuge dropped out right near the neighborhood entrance. We would ABSOLUTELY return to this house upon another trip to Sanibel. Thank you for such a wonderful experience!

    • Manager Responded on 7/2/2021

      Alexis, thank you for the wonderful review of Crow's Nest! It's one of our favorite homes as well. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay - especially the location, amenities, accuracy of photos, our services, and the bike rental option. We hope to welcome you back to the home in the future.

    a guest from Sherborn, MA recommends this vacation rental

    Our stay was wonderful! SBL Vacations was extremely responsive and helpful throughout our stay and Crow's Nest is a great home. It was a quick walk or bike to Bowman's beach, which was perfect for us! Also worth noting that the home was spotless upon our arrival, which is incredible important during this time.

    • Manager Responded on 11/21/2020

      Dear Emily, We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us at Crow's Nest! We appreciate your feedback and we look forward to welcoming you back to Sanibel in the future.
