Felt right at home at Miles Away

By: Trip Date: 02/01/2019

Felt right at home at Miles Away –

Our month at Miles Away on Sanibel Island was very pleasant and enjoyable. The home was exactly as pictured and described by Sharon and her staff at Cottages to Castles.

From the very first day I felt like we were guests of a very welcoming family. Everything we would need for our stay was there. The kitchen was well appointed with all the utensils, dishes, silverware, etc we would need. The beds were comfortable and the linens were first class quality.

Thank you for the attention to detail that you obviously put into your property management, we look forward to working with you in the future.

And a special thank you to the Miles Away Owners for allowing us to be their very first rental clients, we tried to treat your home with the same respect we show our own homes.
