We chose to buy this condo because it's close to the beach and the place is well kepted

What makes this condo unique

Well decorated, clean, resonable price for condo that is steps away from the private, white sand beach.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Sanibel arms was very well maintained and the beach and access was great. Unit a5 was very clean and well kept with a screened porch canal side. Just a very brief walk to beach access. Sanibel is a lovely island with lots of beautiful beaches. There were lots of people on the island it still felt quiet and relaxing with lots to do on the island.

Relaxing summer getaway

  • 5 of 5

Great vacation in Sanibel! The management office was very friendly and provided us with recommendations on what to do in the island. When we walked in the condo, it felt very spacious. There was plenty of room for a family of 5 to stretch out. The bedrooms are big and all had their own TVs. The kitchen came well equipped with dishes, cups, and utensils. This condo also has a screened area which is great for drying your wet towels and bathing suits after a day at the beach. We were pleasantly surprised to find beach chairs, umbrellas, and beach toys as we forgot ours. Speaking about the beach, it was a short walk to the beach from the condo through a nice boardwalk. The location is quiet and convenient. Tip: Don't forget to check out the entertainment center, they had great selection of family board games, puzzles, and DVDs. Overall, very comfortable stay, highly recommend it!

We enjoy this beautiful place with my husband and four little ones... You can find anything you need. It definitely felt like home. Very close to the beautiful beach, quiet, great and fun amenities... When my kids were exhausted of the beach we stayed at the beautiful swimming pool. We definitely recommend this place!

Beautiful Condo, Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here with friends, it was very comfortable and clean with beautiful beach themed decorations. The condo has a great layout with a nice sized kitchen, also has a nice screened in porch. The beach is beautiful and only steps away from the condo, located across the street. We would recommend this condo 100% and will stay there again as soon as our schedules permit.

Located on the Gulf side of the Island, Sanibel Arms is a charming vacation spot. It's a great place to relax, enjoy time with loved ones and reconnect with nature. Our facility is located right on the beach, we have a continuous Gulf breeze and you'll sleep like a baby while you are here.

Sanibel beaches attract visitors from all around the world, partly because of the large quantities of seashells that frequently wash up there. One of the reasons for these accumulations of shells is the fact that Sanibel is a barrier island which has an 'east-west orientation when most islands are north-south. Hence, the island is gifted with great sandy beaches and an abundance of shells. It is also due to the fact that Sanibel is 'part of a large plateau that extends out into the Gulf of Mexico for miles. It is this plateau that acts like a shelf for seashells to gather.' Many sand dollars can be found as well.

People who are lucky enough to find a shell of a junonia while shelling on Sanibel, often get their picture in the local newspapers. The junonia is very difficult to find and is greatly prized. Shells of the species can be purchased at local shell shops, or can be seen on display in the Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum, in some of the glass display tables at the Sanibel Cafe, or at the Sanibel Shell Fair in early March.

Throughout the year, many people come to the beaches of Sanibel to gather up beautiful shells. People are often seen bending down as they look for seashells, and this posture is known as the 'Sanibel Stoop.' There are beaches almost all around the island. Even on the way to the island there are beaches along the causeway which are great for fishing and windsurfing. However, beach parking is very limited on Sanibel, and in high season parking spaces are often unavailable.

Lighthouse Beach is named after the famous Sanibel Lighthouse, which includes a popular fishing pier and nature trails. The most secluded beach on the island is Bowman's Beach; there are no hotels in sight and the beach has a 'pristine and quiet' atmosphere.

Barron's selected Sanibel and Captiva Islands as one of the 10 Best Places for Second Homes in 2010.
