Reviews from our recent guests!
I just wanted to touch base with you and let you know what a wonderful time my brother, friend and I had at the cottage. From the moment we walked in, it felt like home. Thank you for a remarkable stay and the beach, oh my gosh, what a beautiful stretch of heaven!!!!
Hopefully, we will be staying with ya’ll again next year. Until then, have wonderful holidays and more glorious days on Sanibel Island.
Breakaway is amazing! The house is beautiful! Tons of space in the house! Great kitchen, dining room and beds and bathrooms! Pool is wonderful! The street is quiet and beautiful. The greenery makes me smile. My whole family enjoyed this home so so so much. It was like our life just moved to a much warmer place. We cannot wait to return! The owner is amazing and answers all questions quickly.
Our family: parents, two children (6 and 9), and grandparents enjoyed a wonderful stay at BreakAway. The home and pool are incredibly clean and very well maintained. There was plenty of space for the six of us to hang out together and to have places to retreat when we needed some quiet time. We all enjoyed taking breaks from beach time and lounging by the pool and gathering in the living room to play games / watch movies when we spent the evening in. The property’s location is perfect too, a very short walk to the beach and an easy bike ride to many local shops and restaurants. The owner, Kim couldn’t have been more friendly and accommodating. Our family hopes to return next year!
We had such a fun time at Breakaway! We have been coming to Sanibel for over 10 years and this was by far our favorite home to stay. Absolutely beautiful and had everything you would need while vacationing with your kiddos. Loads of kitchen extras, beach blankets, towels and even thermal coolers. The kids were thrilled to find extra pool floaties at the pool and mommy was thrilled to find extra laundry detergent since I had forgotten ours. Had just about everything you need in case you forget your own which was a huge lifesaver with two toddlers. We also found beach chairs and extra pool toys which saved is a car load. The house is very close to restaurants and hidden down a beautiful dirt road. We made dinner most nights and found everything we needed in the kitchen. Had candle lit dinner on the screened in patio several nights. The house is a short walk from the beach and we loved the outside shower for the kids. One of our new favorite homes in Sanibel!! This is a must stay.
My husband and I had a wonderful time staying at Breakaway! It was the perfect place to relax and unwind: just a short walk to the beach and located on a quiet and private street. The home is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. We enjoyed biking around the island, kayaking at J.N. Ding Darling nature reserve, bird-watching at the Bailey tract, shellhunting (it’s great right after a storm!) and lazing around by the pool. Gramma Dots has the BEST key lime pie and we enjoyed excellent dinners at both Traders and Timbers. The Island Cow was a great breakfast spot on the days we didn’t eat in-house. Kim is a warm and welcoming hostess and we appreciate her family sharing their home with us. We hope to make a return trip soon!
We had a great stay at Breakaway. Highlights of the house included: – open floor plan and skylights bring in lots of light – modern kitchen and new grill great for cooking meals – wonderful private pool – great location two blocks to the beach and half mile to Dairy Queen.
A frequent Sanibel visitor, I’ve always stayed in gulf front condos. I decided to try an “inland” home this year, and was not sorry!! Having our own pool was a treat for both adults and kids. Proximity to beach and bike paths was great. There were lovely, little touches that made the house a home, and if anything was missing or didn’t work properly, Kim and her “peeps” responded quickly.
I had the honor of staying at BreakAway with my family February, 2017. What an incredible vacation. Kim has done a spectacular job of providing a home that is beautifully decorated, comfortable, fully equipped and goes above and beyond to ensure your every need is fulfilled. It came to my attention that the gas grille was not working properly so I called Kim. Within 3 hours a brand new top of the line grille was provided, well in time for dinner!! The pool area is private, sunny and perfect for family frolicking. My family has been coming to Sanibel for 50 years and I have to say that BreakAway is one of our all time favorites. Thanks Kim for enabling us to make some exceptional memories in this beautiful vacation home. We will be back!!
More Than We Could Have Asked For!
Beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean, updated bathrooms and a lay-out that gives everyone their own private space at night while having a bright cheery open floor plan in the middle for everyone to gather during the day. The heated pool in the back and the beach a 5 minute walk down the road made “Breakaway” perfect for my whole family. The location was perfect because we not only could walk to the beach, but we could walk over to the Holiday Inn’s restaurant. I especially loved the convenience of having a washer and dryer tucked away in the hallway closet. Three T.V.s and WiFi was a plus for my husband and children. I loved the back screened in porch as my retreat at the end of the day. I would highly recommend “Breakaway” to anyone who wanted all the comforts of home, and then some! Karen
Our family had such a wonderful stay at Breakaway! The home had everything we needed and more. The beds were so comfortable that our children did not want to get out of them. The house is decorated so nicely and has all the amenities needed. The pool was fantastic and always warm. This was our first visit to Sanibel and we were so happy to find such a wonderful place. Sanibel was absolutely gorgeous. We biked everywhere and had breakfast at the Island Cow every morning (best breakfast ever!!) Island Pizza was really great too. Thank you Kim for providing us with this fabulous place!
Had a great time at breakaway! The house is stocked great, and a perfect location! Swam at the beach and then the pool everyday. The owner was very attentive as well. Highly recommended!
LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION… BEST ON ISLAND!!!
Our 1 month stay went by too quickly… we loved staying at THE BREAKAWAY. The home has a beach theme throughout. The bed in the master was so comfortable !! The owner was available if we needed anything. (but we really didn’t ) We like to walk to places… the beach, restaurants, bars and bike rental place – all within walking distance. We took bikes everywhere – grocery store – fishing pier – and our favorite trip (3 times ) to Doc Fords for lunch. Highly recommend this home …. it was Paradise !! 🙂
