Your Host



Vermont, United States · Member since September 2012

We live in Burlington, Vermont, USA - we enjoy visiting Cape Cod, Massachusetts USA and Sanibel Island and Captiva, Florida USA, and when possible the Ski and Snowboard slopes of Vermont, Utah and Colorado, USA. We have a son CU-Boulder 2015 & daughter CU-Boulder 2018 studying at the University of Colorado - Boulder USA. We have also been guests at several Airbnb locations; Internationally: Santiago and Villarrica, CHILE, and in the USA: Vail and Boulder, Colorado and Park City, Utah.

Sanibel is a magical place - as soon as we are on the island we set out on a bicycle ride, a walk, cast a fishing pole, or launch a kayak and take a paddle to soak in all the island has to offer. With some planning you can visit Sanibel without a car! A HERTZ rental car outlet is ON-ISLAND if needed - in 2016/17 we will have a TURO - Ride Share Car available for rental with the unit to those with a valid driving license - this car will have both a SunPass toll reader and the valuable Sanibel Beach Stickers. The Sanibel-Captiva Recreation Center is top notch with daily classes like spinning, outside pool, and a clean gym fully stocked with modern equipment.

We hope to share this special experience with others.........enjoy!
