    Coming to Sanibel for nearly thirty years we found this wonderful home last year. So this was our - two people - second visit at the Island Dreams. Unfortunately we could not make plans for the next year at this time. Otherwise we would have accepted the offer to make a reservation for the next year immediately!

    We have rented this property three times in the past 4 years but will not book it again. It is an older property that requires general maintenance and additional updating.

    • Manager Responded on 8/2/2019

      Thank you so much for your review of Island Dreams. We are so sorry about the issues you experienced during your stay. We are glad we were able to help you throughout the month. We hope we are able to help you plan another trip to Sanibel next year.

    Coming to Sanibel for nearly thirty years we - meanwhile seniors - now found this perfect home: great location at the quiet end of West Gulf Drive, steps to the uncrowded beach, a warm and friendly ambience.

    Our second December at Island Dreams and we booked again for 2018. The house is nicely located across the street from the beach and the heated pool and fenced yard for our dogs was what attracted us most. Thanks again to Rob, Charlie and staff for a great stay!

    This is a beautiful pool home, in the perfect location, right across the street from the beach. Check in after hours was easy peasy, too. We absolutely enjoyed our peaceful stay here. That's an understatement, because we didn't want to give up those keys! Rob, Charlie and Carly made sure we were taken care of. They're seriously good people. We highly recommend renting through SBL Vacations, you will NOT be disappointed.

    a guest from Orrington, ME recommends this vacation rental

    Our SBL rental lived up to its moniker--"Island Dreams". We found the property to be as advertised, i.e. newly remodeled, across the street from the beach, and able to accommodate our extended families. The neighborhood is quiet, upscale residential with attractive homes homes on all sides.

    When we arrived we found everything nicely cleaned with plenty of space to easily store all of our belongings. The home's equipment and appliances were generally new and in good working condition. The one exception was the heat pump for the pool. SBL property managers were able to get the old pool heater replaced with a new one in just a couple of days--which we considered to be exceptional under the circumstances.

    Aside from having easy access to the beach, the property is within a mile of Doc Ford's restaurant and the Ding Darling Nature Preserve. We enjoyed both of these venues on multiple occasions during our month long stay on Sanibel Island.

    Overall, we had a very comfortable and enjoyable stay on Sanibel Island. When our extended families came to visit they were equally impressed with the Island Dreams rental and all that it offered. We would definitely recommend this property to our friends.

    This is the second year we've stayed at Island Dreams and we loved the renovation, making our stay even more perfect. The owners created more of an open floor plan that worked really well for all of us. Thank you owners and property managers.

    Lisa W recommends this vacation rental

    Island Dreams was a complete dream the month we were lucky to be there! The home is very comfortable and decorated beachy chic! The open floor plan is great and the pool area is delightful and very private. The owners have done an excellent job of providing everything a renter could need! The kitchen is well stocked with new appliances and plenty of gadgets and dishes. We prepared most meals at the home and often used the very nice bbq grill. The bedrooms are spacious and beds comfortable. The beach access is almost directly across the street on a beautiful, quiet stretch of beach. It's the perfect spot to watch the breathtaking Sanibel sunsets and of course to collect sea shells! Our favorite local restaurants are Island Cow, Lighthouse Cafe for breakfast, the East End Deli for great Cuban sandwiches, RC Otters on Captiva, and Pinocchio's for ice cream! We loved kayaking at Tarpon Bay Explorers and going to the farmer's market on Sunday mornings. A drive through Ding Darling and a boat ride to Cabbage Key for a cheeseburger in paradise are also some of our favorite things to do! We highly recommend the Island Dreams home and Sanibel Vacations for your next visit to Sanibel!

    Thomas R from BURLINGTON, KY recommends this vacation rental

    Second year for renting this property. The remodeling done by the new onwners was great and turned this propery from just average to outstanding. Management staff was great, qwuickly responded to a minor frig problem. Location is very convienent to the beach. Kithcen is well stocked with everything you'll need. Lots of extras with bikes, beach chairs, pool floats, beach carts etc. Only negative is the outdated garage door that opens manually. Would be back next year but the owner is staying the month of October.

    Rented this unit for the location on quiet W. Gulf Dr. and near beach and wasn't disappointed. The house is somewhat dated but had everything we needed. Sleeps 9 very comfortably. Great lanai and pool. Should get an automatic garage door opener for us senior citizens. Great value for the price!
