Fantastic place to stay in Sanibel
Fantastic place to stay in Sanibel
My wife and I had a great 10-day stay in this condo, taking advantage of its well-equipped kitchen, towels for the beach, a washer/dryer, grills on the canal out back, and access to a nice pool. The unit is clean and comfortable. I like to fish, and spent a lot of time fishing Ding Darling from my kayak; if you have a boat, you can moor it right on the canal. The lighthouse is also not far away, which is another good place to fish. My wife liked to walk the beach in search of shells. We rented bikes and explored the entire island, riding through Ding Darling one day and seeing a lot of great birds. We also saw dolphins and manatees. And took a paddleboard lesson at Tarpon Bay Explorers. The weather was beautiful our whole stay. We only had one problem, which was entirely my fault: I locked us out of the condo one day. But Lori and the two condo managers called us right back and the situation was resolved promptly. We even kind of enjoyed the experience as we made friends at the pool with some other people from the Boston area.

A Real Vacation
A Real Vacation
My husband just had the priviledge of spending 2 weeks at Sanibel. We had a wonderful time. Check-in was easy, my husband got a bike there at the office, and then we went to Billy's to get me a 7 speed. The condo was very clean and well appointed. We cooked in most nights and had everything we needed in the kitchen. The AC worked nicely, plenty of hot water, the washer and dryer came in handy. The bed was very comfortable! Many times, the bed is not comfortable when you rent a condo. We rested well! The living room was very comfortable. I could not have been more pleased. Everything ws very clean. There were beach chairs and an umbrella. We used the pool several times. It was a short walk or bike ride across to the beach..less than 100 yards, I would say. The hurricane did not come near Florida, but those big waves did! Shelling was great and we were up before dawn several days to hit the best shelling time. We enjoyed our bikes and rode to the lighthouse often. This has to be one of the best vacations ever. We only went off island twice in two weeks. We were relaxed, loved the condo and already have the calendar marked for next year! So, all was as stated in the listing or better, everyone was easy to work with, we enjoyed biking and shelling..the black beans and rice and the fried shrimp appetizer at The Island Cow were great..the beans and rice under the soups is more than enough for two..it is not a soup..wonderful!! I highly recommend this listing, Lori was great to work with, but please don't schedule your trip for our weeks!! ;)

First Visit to Sanibel
First Visit to Sanibel
Our family of 3 enjoyed a stay here. The photos are accurate. Small kitchen is clean and well stocked. A short pleasant walk to the beach, at the opposite end of the complex, just across the street. Reasonably priced bicycle rental on property...Bike path directly in front of complex. Unit is on second floor; no elevator. Generous supply of towels, including some for the beach. A nice view from the bedroom window overlooking the canal...We saw a manatee surface one morning! Grounds of Sanibel Arms are meticulously maintained and lovely. Delightful next door neighbors (permanent residents) were welcoming and friendly. The owner was helpful and easy to work with. The island has so many restaurants to choose from. Our favorites: Over Easy, Grandma Dots, Lazy Flamingo, Lighthouse Cafe; and Green Flash on Captiva Island. For fun, we recommend the Shell Museum, an evening cruise to watch the birds come in to roost on Rookery Island, a tram tour of J. "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge, shell collecting on the beach while watching the sun rise, and last, but certainly not least, biking. Sanibel Island...Love at first sight! Sanibel Arms...A lovely place to stay.

I was fortunate to spend 2 weeks at this well maintained, comfortable condo with all amenities that were needed fully provided. It is located on the desirable east end of the island. My husband and I are anxiously awaiting our return stay next summer. I would highly recommend this condo and please note that the owner was a pleasure to deal with.

We just returned from a very enjoyable 11 night stay in this condo. The unit is well appointed and has an open spacious floor plan which made for a very comfortable stay. The complex is well maintained and attractively landscaped. The beach is a very short walk from the unit and the bedroom overlooks a very picturesque canal located behind the building. Gas grills are conviently located behind the building along the canal. Everyone we encountered during our stay was pleasant, the Sanibel Arms staff were very friendly and helfpul and the condo owner was a pleasure to work with. The complex is located on the East end of the island and it is about a one and a quarter mile walk to the lighthouse on the beach. There is an extensive network of bike trails on the island that will take you from your condo to all of the restaurants, shops, and attractions on the island. The trails are also great for walking or jogging, We really enjoyed our stay in this unit at Sanibel Arms and would stay here again. We highly recommend it!

Just returned from staying at this unit at Sanibel Arms for 2 glorious weeks. The unit was just fabulous.I would highly recommend this property to anyone in a heartbeat. It has everything you need for a very nice stay on the Island. The owner was extremely fast answering any e-mails and the office staff were all very genuinely friendly and helpful. The unit was very well maintained and clean and all the photos were extremely well representative of the unit and surroundings. As far as attractions, activities, you can find anything you want to do, but my main reason for going is the slow pace of the Island life on Sanibel, the tranquility, peace, and just feeling like one with nature at it's very best.!!!!

We really enjoyed our stay on Sanibel. The unit was clean, cozy, comfortable and convenient to the beautiful beach. Having the canal behind the unit was an advantage as you could watch the boats and fishermen as well as hear the "splashing" of fish at night. Sunrises and sunsets are spectacular. The hiking and nature trails suited us perfectly. We will be back.

This condo was great, and the best part is you can walk out to the canal and fish from there...the best fishing I have ever had on Sanibel. Condo is clean, has everything I needed and the location is good.

Year Purchased: 1996
About: I am an elementary school teacher and have enjoyed many spring, summer, & Christmas vacations on sunny Sanibel Island. It is the ideal place to go for relaxation and rejuvenation and, as a school teacher, time on Sanibel's pristine beaches with it's spectacular sunrises and sunsets is the best way for me to return to the classroom well-rested and ready to be the best teacher that I can be for my students.
Why Sanibel Arms:
While grieving the death of my father, my best friend insisted I go to Sanibel with her for a little respite and reflection. I experienced tremendous serenity and healing there and decided that Sanibel was a place where I wanted to spend more time. My dad would have approved as he loved the beach! I truly believe that if everyone experienced a week on Sanibel, the world would be a much happier place!
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
I am truly a beach baby and enjoy the sun, sand and surf of Sanibel. I love that the beaches are quiet and restful, with just the sounds of the waves and seagulls whispering the cares of the world away. In addition to reading and relaxing on the beach, I enjoy engaging in one of Sanibel's most 'famous' beach activities - shelling! Sanibel is listed on the Travel channel, and by Dr. Beache, as being one of the best shelling beaches in the world! I also enjoy the tremendous variety of dining experiences available. You'll find everything from gourmet dogs and burgers, to sushi, to fresh salads and seafood. Many restaurants provide live music, tropical drinks, and early bird specials. Shopping the boutiques and galleries of Sanibel is a foray into local colors and textures. You can find everything from the tropics including clothing, jewelry, home decor, sandals, and more. I want to share all of these unique experiences with you!
