Our best family vacation – ever – 2nd to none!

By: Trip Date: 12/01/2018

Great stay on Sanibel Island-nice island pace!!!
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
We rented the Point of View home for a month over Christmas and New Years and loved everything about it. It’s charm, view, and private setting.

Our four children enjoyed fishing, kayaking, and crabbing. They hardly ever touched their iPads!!!

This has easily been our best family vacation, ever. Everything was perfect!

My favorite part of the house is the Master Bathroom window! There was nothing I didn’t like! We tried our best to take good care of it.

We had a wonderful Christmas here and had many adventures. The boys filleted their first fish, and I read two whole books.

We’ll never forget our time at your amazing piece of paradise 🙂

Sharon, Amy, and Connie were great at making sure our experience was 2nd to none.

We can’t wait to come back next year!!!🤗

The beauty of the place is unmatched

By: Trip Date: 12/30/2017

Thank you so much for the joy of this experience! 2017 has been a long year for us, and this family vacation has been just what we needed to relax, enjoy nature, exercise, play games and enjoy each other.

The beauty of the place is unmatched.


We will miss that amazing view

By: Trip Date: 06/01/2016

We all had an amazing month in your wonderful house, everything you need and you desire is right there, organized and in perfect place to be used or to be found.

The nature is inside the house and you can really relax, just waiting that something happens and surprises you!

We loved everything and we all will miss that amazing view.

Your house is the most beautiful in the neighborhood and fit perfectly our taste – we are Italian!


We’ve had a wonderful time

By: Trip Date: 05/31/2016

So difficult to find words for how grateful we are to have vacationed in your glorious home. We have had a wonderful time at Sanibel and Captiva.

We are sad to leave this paradise. God bless you and your entire family, as you all have hearts of gold!


This home and setting is truly a paradise

By: Trip Date: 05/01/2016

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful vacation home. This home and setting is truly a paradise.

Every day there was something new to see, admire and appreciate. We enjoyed biking, kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing, shelling and over eating!

Most of all, we enjoyed sitting in your back yard, relaxing as we watched for dolphins and birds. We couldn’t stop taking pictures!

Seeing such amazing sunsets right from your living room – unbelievable!

Our last day here was a rainy day, and it was still fun. I won playing Pictionary – you have thought of everything.

The binder with advertisements and phone numbers was most helpful.

We can’t thank you enough. This vacation was one of a kind. We will never forget your kindness. We were surrounded by beauty inside and out, just like your family. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


You’ve anticipated every possible need

By: Trip Date: 03/01/2015

We have had a lovely time in your “Point of View” house on San Carlos Bay.

You have anticipated every possible need within and organized and beautifully decorated house. We have treated it with all the respect that it deserves.

Tonight we will enjoy one last gorgeous sunset and will be looking forward to more next March.


Your beach home is absolutely fabulous

By: Trip Date: 04/01/2015

Your beach home is absolutely fabulous. Your touches are everywhere – lovely, thoughtful and so organized!
