    Leslie C from Toronto, Ontario recommends this vacation rental

    Our third time at Ospreys Nest, it was great to be back in this lovely home, with spectacular views of the bayou and surrounded by amazing tropical flowers and trees.
    The home is open and bright and very comfortable. We are sad that it will not be available for rent in 2021 The pool is fabulous, but the heater was not reliable.

    • Manager Responded on 2/17/2020

      Dear Leslie, Thank you for your review of Osprey's Nest. We are so happy that you enjoyed the home! Unfortunately, the owner isn't renting it next year. I apologize for unreliability of the pool heater. We have noted that. Thanks again!

    Michael W from Huntingdon, cambridgeshire recommends this vacation rental

    A great stay. The house is lovely and on a large plot, beautifully landscaped, and with a fabulous pool and relaxation area. The house is comfortable with a modern if strangely arranged kitchen! It was very clean inside, but outside furniture, deck etc needed cleaning. The dock is great for fishing and watching the fish jump.
    We saw many birds, rabbits, lizards, and a couple of snakes.
    The only things we didn’t like were that there was no change of linen - never met that problem before anywhere- no hairdryer - likewise, so had to buy one. We left it so hope future guests will not need to. We also suffered a lot from insect bites, despite all the best repellents the island recommends. Because if this I would recommend Ospreys Best to a friend but warn them about insects.

      Thank you so much for your review of Osprey's Nest! We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay there and enjoyed the updates throughout the home! The wildlife is definitely a huge perk to being on this part of the island! We do provide hairdryers in each of our homes and condos. If you arrived and there was not one provided, we would have been happy to bring one over to you. We do encourage our guests to call us for any of these items. We are happy to help do everything we can to help you have the best stay possible with us. We hope to see you again next year!

    Scott M from Wichita, KS recommends this vacation rental

    We rented the Osprey House for the month of September 2017. We arrived September 4th. The home and grounds are wonderful and met all of our expectations. As Irma approached we evacuated 200 miles north for a week before returning. We were apprehensive about what we would find but were relieved to find no damage. Rob was very helpful at staying in communication with us and letting us know when we could return. The maintenance staff were very good. The same day we returned they had a crew cleaning up all of the storm vegetation. When we needed more propane for the grill it was delivered promptly. Except for Irma we were very pleased with our stay.

We are so glad that you enjoyed the rest of your vacation. We would love to help you plan another vacation in the future! Thank you so much for staying with us!

    Tara G from Gainesville, FL recommends this vacation rental

    Lovely spacious home with beautiful natural landscaping! Enjoyed watching Rosiate Spoonbills in the trees behind the bayou and other birds that would land on the dock. Easy bike ride to beach, just 1 mile from Blind Pass. But it is still good to purchase a beach pass at the rec center for full beach days and checking out other beaches.

    • Manager Responded on 7/17/2017

      We are so glad you had a wonderful time here and we look forward to your next stay!

    a guest from Pipersville, PA recommends this vacation rental

    Nothing describes this rental property better than our 2 year old daughter upon entering the front door and running into the middle of the grand entrance. She took a 360 look around and muttered "woah".

    As others have stated the pictures don't do this house justice. The feeling you get when inside is amazing. My wife, toddler, myself and even our dog enjoyed this house for a month in sweltering September in Florida and we had a spectacular time.

    The kitchen is amazing for cooking meals as soon as you figure out all the fancy appliances and the stocked with everything you can imagine drawers and cabinets. The outside living space for relaxing, eating, swimming, and sitting by the fire pit was nothing less than perfect for a month long getaway in Sanibel.

    3 minutes drive from one of the nicest beaches on the island, 10 mins from Ding Darling, 15 mins from food and shopping, and very close to everything really since the island is so small! What a perfect location away from the touristy attractions and quiet as can be but still close to everything.

    Perfect month away from home and what an amazing island with lots to see and do even in the off season. I wouldn't hesitate to rent again here but I imagine the prices will be headed way up when people start to realize what an absolutely stunning retreat of a rental this is.

    Thank you for making my vacation perfect!!

    Michael B from Bardstown, KY recommends this vacation rental

    This home was a very pleasant surprise. We have rented houses from VRBO several times in the past. The pics are usually taken for maximum effect and the experience is not quite what we were hoping.This was the first time that the pics were beautiful and the home was even better! Rob was terrific to work with and very accommodating. Loved the privacy, the pool, the dock, the observation deck and the open spacious floor plan! We had a wonderful vacation and have already made plans to return next year!

    Cassandra J recommends this vacation rental

    We stayed here in January for a family vacation. We have been going to vacation rental homes instead of hotels or resorts for years. This is the best house we have ever stayed in! Comfortable beds, great kitchen, living room and beautiful views. You can fish off the dock while your kids swim in the pool! Short walk or bike ride to the beach. Crab races in Captiva on Monday and Thursday nights along with wonderful restaurants. Although most nights we stayed at the house because it is truly that amazing. The only negative I could report is that the neighbor is crabby and asked for quiet time at 1:30 in the afternoon. Rob and Charlie were great to work with, very helpful, they even pointed us in the direction of a great spa at the Tween Waters Resort. We will definitely be coming back!
