Everything was fabulous.
The property was 100% as advertised, well-appointed, comfortable with a marvelous view (beach, shell-seekers, bird life, sunrises, sunsets) from the lanai. Sanibel Island as a destination was very enjoyable, peaceful, with plenty of interesting locally-owned shops and many good restaurants to try – we particularly enjoyed the Jacaranda, went twice for dinner during our 2 week stay. We have already re-booked the same property for Spring 2014. Island Vacations as the local property managers were very responsive and polite when we contacted them to arrange that 2014 booking. We toured through the Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge, enjoyed very much a 2 person dolphin tour by Mangrove Masters, drove down to Everglade City for an air-boat tour, and pretty much hung around the beach and pool the rest of our time there (excepting a couple of trips to the Miromar Outlet Mall relatively close by in Ft. Myers). Yes, all-in-all … Fabulous.
