“funtastic and supercalifragilisticexpialidocious”

We’re back home for 2 months now and and we feel a bit “homesick” about Sanibel. The warm Florida weather and the friendly Sanibel island made our vacation definitely enjoyable. But our stay at the cottage was much more than that. We arrived with high expectations but then Leslie and Jim exceeded all of them. It started with a warm welcome and we found a perfectly prepared cottage that made us feel at home right away. And for the following days Leslie and Jim kept helping out with everything - just to make our time at the cottage even better … Thank you a million times for a GREAT time at your cottage!

“excellent choice”

My husband, myself and our daughter and friend spent a week here. It was the perfect place to stay. Leslie was incredibly helpful answering all questions beforehand. The house is extremely clean ,very bright and sunny, very comfortable,well organized, quiet and peaceful ,no detail is overlooked to make your stay stress free. everything you could possibly need is provided. The location is great. It is a quiet street very close to the beach, literally a three minute walk and you are there. There is a large yard, a spacious deck which we ate every meal on, the bikes provided were great, we biked everywhere. We already want to book a stay here for next year.

We stayed for eight nights in this beautiful property. The location was ideal, especially for carrying your cooler to the beach. The property was everything it said on the tin. It was very clean and beautifully decorated throughout - we wanted for nothing - even the small things that are not usually provided in a vacation rental. It was a real home from home. We would recommend this property to anyone and hope to go back ourselves one day. Finally the owners were an absolute pleasure, professional and yet very warm. Thank you!!!

This trip was our first time to Sanibel Island and it left a lasting impression. It was a trip with my wife, 4 year old son, mother in law, and our water loving dog. As we normally do when we travel we tried to pack up most of our own house to bring to this cottage. having a child with food allergies we always pack a huge cooler to bring with us anyway but when we arrived and finished unloading the many bags boards, bikes and chairs we brought with us, we realized 80% was basically unnecessary. The cottage was perfect. It had pretty much anything and everything you could really need for days at the beach. It was very clean, very comfortable, and plenty of room for our family and our dog. The owners were extremely warm and accommodating who we met the first night since I couldn't figure out how to get the inputs to work on the living TV. Jim and Leslie came over and fixed the TV within minutes and gave us the rundown of great shelling areas and answered all of the questions we had about the area. Everyone had a great stay and we definitely are looking forward to our next vacation at Shell Basket Lane.

“Absolutely wonderful place!!!”

Our vacation to Sanibel Island was scheduled last minute and our stay was absolutely wonderful. The cottage is extremely close to the beach, very clean and beautifully decorated!!! The ease of a keyless entry to the owners have several items (sun screen, bug spray, laundry detergent, etc) there for your convenience. It made out stay all the more better. I will absolutely stay at this cottage again!!!

Our family traveled to Sanibel Island this summer on Florida's pristine gulf coast. We rented Jim and Leslie's quaint beach cottage property that resides on Shell Basket Lane {adorable, right?}. I found their lovely cottage on, which we religiously use to book all our vacation property rentals. Jim and Leslie's property have 5 out of 5 star reviews and I am going to tell you why. Jim and Leslie have everything you need for a care-free beach vacation right at your fingertips. Plenty of luxury towels, linens, toilet paper {don't laugh}, a television in every room, a spice rack, washer/dryer, and everything you forgot! I forgot my sandals {you can laugh} and they had extra sandals too! They also have beach chairs, bikes, a gas grill, lists of local activities, recommended restaurants, emergency phone numbers, and I could go on infinitely. This is a very child friendly place to stay if you have children. My toddler broke a frame while we were there and Leslie told me it big deal! Beach access is a very short jaunt out the back. A perfect spot and lucky for you I am willing to share:) Jim and Leslie's beach cottage is as comfortable as if you were staying in your very own home.

“Fantastic Family Vacation”

Reviewed 22 Jul 2013

Cottage was everything we expected and as depicted on website. Very short walk to the beach which our young girls loved. Great that we didn't have to load up the car to access the beach. Leslie and Jim welcomed us to the cabin and showed us around and offered suggestions for restaurants and local activities. We will recommend this to anyone we know that is planning a vacation to Sanibel.

Our stay on Shell Basket Lane was amazing! We were very impressed with the property and the price is amazing. We were meeting up with other family on the island and they had rented a small condo (connected to about 10 others) for the same price. We had the luxury of the deck, yard, full size kitchen with every utensil or appliance you could want, and probably double the square footage! Best of all we had complete privacy (no stomping neighbors upstairs or next door, no loud parties at night) and a 2 min walk to the beach! To top it off the owners were so accommodating and sweet! Great place!

What a wonderful week we had at this cottage! So many items were provided by the owners, such as beach towels, hair dryers, and bathroom necessities, that we didn't have to overpack like we usually do! The owners even have a bookshelf started, so of course I left 3 books for others to read. We took advantage of their beach umbrellas--perfect for the sunny days!--the coffee maker & extensive kitchen tools, as well as the gas grill on their deck. They even have 2 bikes available at the cottage which we rode around the island every morning! Couldn't ask for a better week or better owners! Already made plans to return
