Mango House was a perfect stay for Sanibel. I loved the funky and colorful decorating, which made it a happy place to be. We thoroughly enjoyed the huge porch overlooking the lake with all of the wildlife flying around the place. Seeing the ducks mating was quite the spectacle and seeing Bernie, the alligator. There is a fence between the lake and house. The mattresses were both brand new and very comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped, which was good because we did lots of cooking there while watching the lake through the sliding glass doors. The TV was also new, which made watching the Clemson win even better. We went to the beach 2 ways. One, biking down Rabbit Road, where the drivers were very courteous and drove around us. Two, going toward Sanibel-Captiva Road, then taking the beautiful Rabbit Road West trail, which is behind the lake. The private beach has the BEST shelling on all of the island. We know because we tried them all. We found more unusual and rare shells on this beach, including 2 Alphabet Cones and a large Whelk shell. There were few people on this beach and all are close by home owners who were very friendly. No mass tourist invasion on this beach. We met Jay and Laura and found them very helpful and charming and always quick with answers to any questions we had. Their favorite restaurant, RC Otter’s, was ours, too. They had lots of great recommendations. Having the free, well maintained bikes and chairs was very convenient. Another wonderful feature was the nearness to Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge. We had a senior pass and went every day at low tide or around 4:00. We saw beautiful rosette spoonbills fluffing their wings. What a sight! We cried when we had to leave and are definitely coming back next December.
JB - Thank you so much for your thorough review of Mango House. It was great that our paths crossed during your stay and that we were able to meet you and your family. We love spending time on the lanai as much as you do and look forward to having you back again next year! Best, Jay and Laura Cerny
Very nice but some issues
The house was bright and cheerful and very well equipped. The owners were friendly and eager to please. The very few glitches were taken care of immediately.
That said, there were issues. We had two guests for the week who had the same impressions we did. While the printed materials and pictures are truthful they create an inaccurate impression unless you read it all very carefully.
First Rabbit Road is a very busy thoroughfare and walking it is not as comfortable as it might be. The distance to the beach is considerably longer than the impression created. It is also very easy to misunderstand that there is only cable television in the living room. As to pictures, they are edited so that you cannot be aware that the building is a duplex and not a freestanding one family. As to that the next door neighbor and driveway sharer has a thriving landscaping business. Her garage doors are always open; there is some traffic in and out; and at night it looks like a truck terminal with a huge open bed truck parked for the night
The house was well kept. The advertised yard maintenance was non existent.
None of this ruined our time but things were not perfect. Overall we had a good time.
Thank you for your review. Laura and I are sorry that your stay was not 5-star like our previous guests. We were surprised by this after all of our positive conversations during your stay.
We're sorry that you misunderstood our property description in VRBO. We do not edit our pictures and it is stated in the first paragraph of our property description that Mango House is a duplex. We have never had anybody complain about this aspect of Mango House in the past.
Laura and I tried very hard to handle every issue you brought to our attention in a timely and courteous manner, and we appreciate your acknowledgement of that. We take great pride in our customer service and always hope to build strong bonds with our guests.
We do pay a professional to do our landscaping, and will look into what happened there. Had we known our service was not being correctly provided, we would have handled it quickly just like everything else that you brought to our attention.
The beach access is 1/2 mile from Mango House as noted in the VRBO literature and on the VRBO map. We will speak to our neighbor about what you describe as an open bed truck, as we are not comfortable with that either.
We appreciate your rental and wish you the best!

Owners, Mango House - Sanibel Island, FL
Clean, cute, comfortable and well equipped!
We thoroughly enjoyed the property. Loved its proximity to Ding Darling -- a short bike ride away -- for our birding. Very private.
S. L. - Thanks so much for your kind words about Mango House! We truly enjoyed having you stay at Mango House this year and are looking forward to your return in January 2018! Jay and Laura Cerny
This has been my second year renting the Mango House. This home is so comfortable you feel at home! The Mango House is equiped with every thing you need. It is also centrally located to so many wonderful activities. The beach is very private, the sunsets off the Lanai are breath taking. The Mango House is great for families with many books, games and videos to keep you entertained. I would highly recommend this house, you won't be disappointed!
Thanks so much Pam. We certainly enjoyed having you and your mother at Mango House. Safe Travels!
Nice place to stay on Sanibel Island
I spent the month of December at Mango House and thoroughly enjoyed my visit. The house is well appointed and offers visitors close access to the beach, Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, and Doc Ford's Restaurant- all withing walking distance!! The owners provide bicycles for those who choose to use them. I used the house as a base for birding and photography, and it was very well situated for those activities. The neighbors are quite friendly and helpful- that's a plus. It was a nice stay, and I found the owners to be very responsive to any questions or issues. They made wonderful recommendations for places to eat and visit. Anyone who stays here will surely enjoy it.
Deserves 5 stars and more
We are getting ready to pack up after a wonderful month at Mango House. We liked it so much, we are booked for next year. We appreciated all of the suggestions provided by the owners for sights to see. Thanks to the bikes provided, we spent many hours on Sanibel's bike paths. We appreciated being able to lock up beach chairs to the beach access path fence and not have to carry them back and forth. The home is well equipped, both in the kitchen and on the bookshelves. We spent lots of time sitting on the screen porch looking over the Sanibel River and did see some alligators swim by. We did buy bike flashers for the bikes for the short time on Rabbit Road, which does not have a bike path. We found drivers to be courteous, giving way to the bikers and pedestrians. Thank you to the owners for making their home available to others so we can escape the winter of MI and enjoy Sanibel.
Thanks Stevie and Rob - We are so happy that you had a great February at Mango House and look forward to your return visit next February 2016. We're glad that the bikes worked well, and that you found everything in good order.
Thanks for the positive feedback. It means a lot to us!

Sanibel Island ist weltberühmt für die ganzjährige Beschuss und Vogelbeobachtung. Von Mango House, dem Eingang zum J. N. 'Ding' Darling Wildlife Refuge ist 1/2 Meile entfernt; außergewöhnliche private Strände und Schälen sind 1/2 Meile entfernt; der neue Sanibel Recreation Center ist auch 1/2 Meile entfernt. Mango House ist perfekt für mehrere Ausflüge.
Mindestens eine Reise pro Besuch durch Ding Darling ist ein Muss, ebenso wie ein Ausflug in SCCF (Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation), der Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum, das Historische Museum und Sanibel CROW, das Zentrum für Wildlife Rehabilitation. SCCF bietet sehr praktische Programme zu verschiedenen Themen wie Unechte Karettschildkröte Migrationen / Verschachtelung und Flussuferläufer Paarung - mit dem Strand als Klassenzimmer.
Die Vogelbeobachtung von der Mango House Lanai ist auch außergewöhnlich. Der See hinter Mango House ist kein Salzwasser, aber frisch, und Tausende von Vögeln und anderen Tieren vorbei täglich für ein Getränk und einen kleinen Sozialisation. Da das Mango House Lanai ist nach Westen, sind Sonnenuntergänge auch ein Highlight, wenn von der Lanai über den See angesehen.
Die Familie Favorit - ein Muss am Ende des Tages - ist es, den Sonnenuntergang zu beobachten - keine zwei sind gleich. Wir tun dies entweder von der Mango House Veranda, oder von einem der vielen nahe gelegenen Privatstränden.
Obwohl Mango House ist mit einer kompletten Küche ausgestattet, auch Sanibel Speisemöglichkeiten und zahlreiche herausragende. Unsere Favoriten auf Sanibel sind Doc Fords, die Sanibel Bean, Timbers (und die Timbers Sports Bar), die Island Cow, die Pink Flamingo und das Lighthouse Cafe (auf einer Familie Radtour zu Beginn eines jeden Aufenthalt navigiert). Favoriten auf Captiva sind die Bubble Room (Sie können auch Wüste nur hier kaufen), Mucky Duck, RC Otters und der Key Lime Bistro. Die 'Tween Waters Marina Restaurant und Nest Restaurant Crows sind auch toll.
Sanibel verfügt über 25 Meilen von Radwegen, so dass jeder Strand, Restaurant, schutzgebiet, Shop, Museum, Yachthafen, usw. mit dem Fahrrad als auch die Insel Captiva im Norden. Mango House können die Gäste mehrere Beach Cruiser Fahrräder sowie ein Tandem-Fahrrad und einen Fahrradanhänger zu nehmen.
In der Nähe in Fort Myers sind die Thomas Edison Haus und Ford Museum. Fort Myers verfügt auch über einen internationalen Flughafen, mehrere Krankenhäuser, Fabrikverkauf entfernt, und weitere Einkaufsmöglichkeiten, Restaurants und Unterhaltung.
