Why Tom McGibbon chose Sanibel
Sanibel, in general, and Sanibel Arms West, in particular, are beautiful and relaxing areas to vacation. It has been a good investment.
What makes this Condo unique
the wildlife preserve (Ding Darling) is amazing. Biking, beaching, walking, and eating are my favorite things to do while on the island.
Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Excellent location! Clean and relaxing!
Loved the screened in porch! Perfect for our young family of four. The toddler could go to bed early, the school age kid could watch a movie and my husband and I enjoyed the screened in porch!
We are so happy that you enjoyed our piece of paradise. Yes, the lanai is wonderful for relaxing meals, reading a book, or enjoying the warm summer breezes. The cleaning staff does a wonderful job at creating a spotless condo for our guests. I hope you come back again soon. Thank you for all of your kind words.
Nice, clean condo on Sanibel
Our family of 5 had a really lovely time here on Sanibel Island. H7 was a very nice unit that suited us well. It is very clean, nicely updated, and only a short walk to the beach. The beach itself is full of live critters and shells, and the island is also home to a wonderful nature preserve.
Thank you for your excellent review. The cleaning staff at Sanibel Arms West does an excellent job at providing a very clean condo for each arriving guest. They take pride in their work. We did recently make some beautiful upgrades in living room furniture and new stainless appliances, as well as upgraded both bathrooms and the kitchen. The whole complex is on the gulf, so it is a short walk to the beach. I hope you can come back again soon. Tom & Theresa
Great location and very close to the beach. Couldn’t have been more satisfied with our stay!
My family and I spent a week in this unit and were very pleased with our stay. Cleanliness is a big thing for us (especially my wife) & this was probably the cleanest unit we’ve stayed in using vrbo. The condo was well stocked with bath towels, bed linens & kitchen utensils and we never felt like we were in need of anything. The screened in front porch was very spacious & comfortable with a table & 4 chairs, a lounge chair & ceiling fan. We spent several afternoons out there relaxing & watching thunderstorms. The restaurants and shops are all very short drives and there are plenty of options. We ate at The Island Cow 3 times (grouper sandwich is fantastic), Lazy Flamingo, Blue Giraffe, & Pinocchio’s for ice cream. Must try the Sanibel crunch flavor if you go! We drove through Ding Darling and saw lots of birds, bunnies & fish jumping. We did a sunset dolphin excursion through “Adventures in Paradise” & saw the most colorful sunset we’ve seen in our lives while a group of 4-5 dolphin hung around the boat for a good 20-25 minutes; I wish I could post pics here. We shelled at blind pass and found many cool shells. We also went to the lighthouse and fishing pier but the majority of our days were spent at the beach right outside the condo. This really is a perfect spot for a family vacation & I would absolutely stay here again! Thank you Tom for letting us use your place to celebrate my daughters 6th birthday. We all had a great time and made many memories! I’m sure my kids will remember this trip forever :)
I can not thank you enough for all of your very kind words. The cleaning staff at Sanibel Arms West does a wonderful job at providing a spotless clean condo for our guests. We also have standards to maintain when stocking our unit; so your comments really hit home. There are many wonderful, family friendly restaurants on the island, especially the ones that you mentioned - most are not all that far from the condo. Pinocchio's has the best ice cream! Sunsets (and sunrises) are top notch on the island as well. The sunset dolphin cruise sounds wonderful and I will have to try it next time. I have taken the shelling cruise from "Adventures in Paradise" and it is great too. Again I am so excited that your family had such a great vacation. Thank you, thank you.
Cozy and comfortable and clean andWould recommend to anyone visiting sanibel island
Great location to beach and pool on the property. Close to restaurants and lighthouse beach
Thank you very much for all of your kind words. Your willingness to recommend our condo is the ultimate compliment. Within the last 9 months we got brand new beautiful living room furniture and all stainless appliances. Thanks again for staying at our bit of paradise.
We loved our stay! Our 3 year old loved it so much and was so upset when we had to leave! Very close walking distance to the beach and close drive to restaurants and shops! We loved sitting in the screened in patio during random rainstorms and the whole place was very comfortable and decorated beautiful! Would definitely stay here again!
Thank you very much for your great comments. Obviously, we would agree. We work hard to keep it up to date. Back in November we replaced all the living room furniture with comfortable, beautiful and high quality furniture. In April of this year we replaced all the kitchen appliances with stainless steel appliances. Again I say thank you.
It was fantastic! Our unit was beautiful! Couldn’t have asked for more. Will definitely come bac.
One of the best units we have ever stayed at!
Thank you so much for this wonderful review. We are constantly making improvements. We just recently installed stainless steel appliances. That turned out great. We really appreciate all of your feedback.
