About The Owner

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.

The Owner purchased this condo in 1996

Why The Owner chose Sanibel

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!

What makes this condo unique

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!

Guestbook comments from the manager

This condo is clean, well-equipped, nicely decorated, & perfectly situated on the island for a quiet, relaxing holiday. The property is beautifully landscaped with a lovely pool & is just steps from the beach! The ladies in the office couldn't have been nicer or more helpful.

The lighthouse is a short beach walk away and the entire island has well-maintained sidewalks for biking & walking.

We especially enjoyed the back patio where we could fish & sun in privacy.

October was the perfect time to stay on Sanibel. The weather was gorgeous and the traffic was much lighter than other times of the year.

Clean and Comfortabel

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in the condo. Everything we needed for the basics was provided, and the accommodations were updated, clean and comfortable. It's proximity to restaurants, beach and touristy things made it's location the perfect place to stay.

Thanks for everything!

A Little Slice of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

I love spending time on Sanibel Island, and Sanibel Arms is the perfect location. We have two young children, ages 2 and 4, who love the beach and pool that are within a short walking distance from C-6. C-6 is also on the canal, which has dockage, and is perfect for those who like to fish or wish to dock a boat. There are also grills and picnic tables available on the canal and by the pool for cooking out. The condo owner and staff are very friendly and accommodating. Beach chairs and umbrellas are set out on the beach each weekday, and there are lounging chairs and a covered patio by the pool. Everything at the condo and around the complex is clean, and there is beautifully manicured landscaping. It is a quiet spot away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life where you can relax and play. We will definitely stay again next summer.

Beautiful, clean condo & friendly owner

  • 5 of 5

We have been visiting Sanibel, and staying in the same condo since 1997. It began with us celebrating our anniversary on the island. We loved our week in October so much that we decided to stay a week in April and another in October (both gorgeous months on the island, by the way). We really enjoy the lovely landscaping on the property, the sparkling clean pool, convenient gas grills, and relaxing atmosphere. Our condo also has a washer/dryer combo in it which is definitely a plus as I have mobility issues. It also saves us the cost of using the laundry facilities at the clubhouse & wagging our laundry back & forth. We also appreciate the efficient office staff and friendly owner. We highly recommend Sanibel Arms, and more specifically unit C-6.
