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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"...had a wonderful time visiting the Sanibel & Captiva Islands. We fished the Gulf of Mexico, swam the refreshingly warm waters, saw manatees, sailed a boat, and witnessed the rich wildlife throughout the area. Through it all, we knew we had home away from home at Sanibel Arms West. Thanks for sharing."

Wonderful condo, exceptionally clean and steps to a beautiful beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great visit to Sanibel! This condo was spacious, very clean and had a view of the ocean from the porch. Only a two minute walk down to a great shelling beach and beautiful sunset skies.

The condo complex, Sanibel Arms West, is very quiet and the grounds are kept clean.

The condo owners were very flexible and quick to respond to any questions we had.

Thanks Tom and Theresa!

Owner's Response: I am so appreciative of all your kind words. Thank you, thank you. I love sitting on the lanai in the morning for breakfast and watch the beach. We are spoiled by the beach and shelling being so close. The grounds are beautiful, and the staff and management at the Sanibel Arms West complex are wonderful too. I hope you can return soon. Tom & Theresa.

Spacious get away

  • 5 of 5

Lovely 2nd floor condo with lots of room. Ideally located on the gulf with ready access to the beach and a pool. Walk to the beach without crossing the road in just a minute or be on the bike path in seconds. So many options! The Sanibel Arms West cluster of condos was quiet and this particular condo was excellent!

Owner's Response: What wonderful comments that you made. Thank you. We love it at our Sanibel getaway. The complex has a beautiful new swimming pool that everyone loves. It is nice that it is so close to the beach. Bikes are available for rent right at the complex too for the many miles of bike trails. Thank you for staying!

Beautiful condo.

  • 5 of 5

Loved the condo. One of the nicest I've ever stayed in. Bathrooms and kitchen were beautifully updated. Beds were comfortable. Nice pool in the complex. Staff for the complex were very friendly and helpful. They have beach chairs and umbrellas upon request. You can get bikes from them to ride around the island. Great dining is just a short car ride away, and oh yea, the beach was kinda nice too.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your very kind comments. They are appreciated. We recently updated the kitchen and bath, and so are very pleased you like what we've done. The heated pool, enclosure, and pool furniture are brand new last fall. The Sanibel Arms West staff are very good to the guests and owners alike. We love it there. Thanks again.
