Our unit (D2) has been freshly redecorated with new paint and decor. The bath was remodeled with a walk-in shower and a lovely granite top vanity with plenty of storage. The updated kitchen is user friendly and equipped with everything you will need after a hard day of shelling! The living room is spacious and comfortable with a 42' flat screen smart TV connected to private WIFI / high speed internet. The bedroom is large with ample storage, a king bed and a 32' flat screen TV that is mounted up and out of the way. D2 has everything you need to make your stay here wonderful! The is a bistro table and chairs on the garden patio just outside the door where you can enjoy a meal or just relax with a drink. Our unit includes beach chairs, a beach umbrella, beach towels, a cooler and a beach bag for our guest. There are a limited number of beach umbrellas and chairs provided free of charge on the beach most week days for guests use. All that is needed for a perfect vacation is you!
What we love about Sanibel Arms and our unit D2 is convenience, what a vacation get-away should be. Everything is quick and easy, 1st floor, only steps from beach for a quick up and back, our assigned parking spot is close and next to the D building, the office, pool and laundry are directly across from our unit, and the open spacious layout of our unit provides a relaxing and cool respite from a long day on the beach.
Sanibel Arms only has 64 units in 8 buildings spread across a large property from beach to canal making for a very open and well landscaped complex. Sanibel Arms provides guests free boat mooring on the canal with direct gulf access. The canal is a short walk across the street with grills, picnic tables and provides a great place for fishing off the boardwalk. The canal is quiet and peaceful, favorite place to escape the noise of the beach bustle and sip a cool beverage. There are also grills and picnic tables conveniently located next to the pool directly across from our unit. Besides sand, shelling, swimming, and surf, Sanibel provides many recreational opportunities; one of the most popular being bicycling on the bike paths that cover the entire island. Bikes are available to rent at the office or you may bring your own; adventurous souls can take a day-trip on the bike path all the way to Captiva. Bike or drive over to the Causeway Park which is very popular with locals for fishing, kayaking, wind surfing, and parasailing.
Or, the best thing to do - just relax and do nothing!

About: We are just regular semi-retired folks from the mid-west with family obligations at home that have kept us from moving to paradise - but some day...
Why Sanibel Arms: We first came to Sanibel over 25 years ago. We began making several trips a year, winter and summer, so decided that we should have our own place. We have aways stay on the east end of the island (including one visit to Sanibel Arms) in the eighties. We have explored other parts of the island to visit but continued to return to the more quiet end of the island where we can walk or bike to our favorite restaurants and shopping. We have experienced Sanibel during all seasons and each month has its own unique qualities. It is a magical place that continues to draw us back.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: We love sitting on the patio listening to the palms sway. We love the cottage feeling that you first get when you walk inside. We love the large bright windows, especially the view of the wall of palms outside the bedroom windows. We love the first floor convenience close to everything. We love the kitchen, room for 2, easy to prepare a quick meal and very easy to clean up after - we like it better than home because it is so functional - everything is within arms reach. We love our WIFI Smart HD TV and our private, secure, high speed internet with WIFI. We love our bright and cheery decor. We love the large walk-in shower with multi-function, multiway, handheld shower massage (you will buy one of the for home after you use it).
