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."

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.

Sanibel Island = Sun, Sand, and Sea Shellsl!

  • 5 of 5

What a terrific week spent on Sanibel Island. Staying in Sanibel Arms West Unit H-7 was perfect! Great location, very nice accommodations, and excellent grounds and staff. We enjoyed riding bikes all over the island, walks on the beach, and quickly became acclimated to the Sanibel stoop....picking up so many varieties of shells. A couple of local establishments we recommend include Bennett's Coffee & Donuts, Pinocchio's Gelato/Ice Cream Shop, Grandma Dot's (coconut shrimp), in addition to the many quality clothing, art, and jewelry shops. Thank you, Tom, for providing such a nice place to stay during our week on Sanibel Island. We plan to return and we have already recommended your condo to some friends. Thanks again! Jim & Lesa

Owner's Response: I am thrilled that you loved our beautiful condo! We can't wait to go back each year. Yes, the location is great - very close to restaurants and the causeway., Staff work very hard to make the grounds beautiful. I can't say enough good things about the staff.. Yes, over 20 miles of bike trails on the island. About a 1 mile walk on the beach to the lighthouse. The shelling is magnificent. Pinocchio's Gelato/Ice Cream Shop and Grandma Dot's (coconut shrimp) are our favorites. Lots of great shopping on a quaint island. Again I am thrilled you loved the condo. I look forward to your return. Thank you.

Birthday Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Can't believe we got busy and didn't leave feedback earlier about this great Island retreat back in December. We wanted to get away from it all and spend a well-needed respite with family from out of state. This condo was the perfect place! It was clean, fully stocked, open and full of light and the porch was the perfect spot to relax and chill out after a day on the beach. The owner, Tom, was very courteous and pleasant to deal when booking. Our only complaint is that we had to go back home after just a few days. We would definitely rent this condo again. Thanks Tom for a great stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you for all of your kind words. Yes, we too feel it is a great place to relax and enjoy all the island and the beach have to offer. We too love going out on the lanai, having a cup of coffee, and enjoying our meals. The island also has many fabulous restaurants that we enjoy. The staff at Sanibel Arms West are great at making your stay wonderful. The condo is fully stocked with everything you need for a fabulous vacation. Thanks again! I look forward your next return.

Amazing condo and location

  • 5 of 5

We were on the island for a wedding with four people. The condo was perfect with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. We had all the space that we could need and more for making this our home base while on the island. The condo is beautiful and has everything that you could need while there. Sanibel Arms West is a great location, has beautiful surroundings and great access to the beach. We had a wonderful time with friends, but also had time to relax in the condo with all the comforts of home. We will be back to this location. The owners are wonderful to work with, reservations and payment was a breeze. Check-in and check-out were super easy. Great value for the money and a wonderful place to stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. Like you say, Sanibel Arms West is a great location on the east end of the island (within close proximity of the light house), has been beautifully landscaped, with direct access to the beach. The staff in the on-site office are wonderful to deal with and make everything very easy. The condo is completely updated (for example, 55" HDTV in living room). It is truly a wonderful place to stay!
