Dream Vacation Rentals was started in 2018 by husband and wife, Ryan and Nicole Block. They fell in love with Sanibel and Captiva Islands so much they got married on the beach in 2008 and rented a Captiva Cruise for their reception.

Ryan Block started in the Sanibel Island and Captiva Island vacation rental industry working for a leading Central Reservation company called Reservation Central. He was flown in from outside Detroit, Michigan while still in high school to work on their web site and technology services. After high school and college, Reservation Central offered him a full time position working to grow the business on the Islands. In 2008 he purchased Reservation Central and grew the agency into one of the areas top vacation rental booking agencies grossing nearly $2,000,000 in annual reservations. In 2013 an opportunity presented itself to assist a fledgling real estate company by leading their vacation rental department. Ryan grew the agency from just 25 units under management to nearly 200 vacation and annual rental properties under management by late 2017.
Now the dream of owning and operating their own vacation rental agency has become reality and Dream Vacation Rentals is ready and able to serve the needs of Sanibel Island and Captiva Island vacation rental guests and owners.
