Sanibel Harbour Resort and Spa offers the best of Sanibel Island without all the congestion and traffic. Situated on a private peninsula, the Resort is set on 100 lush, tropical acres of unspoiled San Carlos Bay waterfront, just off the Gulf of Mexico. The Resort has consistently received a 4-diamond rating, the highest rating for any Southwest Florida resort facility. And, although our owner offered rates are much less pricey, Travel & Leisure rated the resort in the top 10 for both categories of “Continental United States & Canada” and, “in the world” for overnight visit costs of over $300.00. Family Circle has also chosen the resort as one of the “top ten” in the United States. The Sanibel Harbour Resort and Spa is the place to be!
On-site eateries range from the convenient deli, to the very casual pool-side Pelican Snackerrie, to the elegant, award winning gourmet restaurant, The Banyon Room. The Tarpon House offers breakfast, lunch and dinner, all served while you are gazing out over water fountains splashing into an oversized pool, surrounded by palm trees, and overlooking the bay. For one of the best meals anywhere in Southwest Florida, walk over by the tennis courts and order any entrée at the Courtside Steakhouse. Make sure to go to the Courtside every Wednesday night for Crab Races! You can catch your favorite NFL, NBA, NHL or other game there anytime on one of the many televisions.
Resort offered, on-site amenities are too numerous to mention, but include a private beach, hot tubs, heated pools, Kids Klub, pool-side bar, Charley’s Cabana Bar with entertainment, sports bar, lighted tennis courts, pro-shop, jogging and nature trails, a newly renovated 40,000 SF ultra-modern spa and fitness center (must make use of a spa service for daily access, such as massage, facials, manicures, etc.), fishing pier, dinner and/or sunset cruises, Sunday Brunch cruises, daytime sight seeing excursions, boat and kayak rentals, marine facilities, and more!

About Shannon Paolocci
My name is Shannon. I live in Hudson, WI. We purchased our condo back in 2002 as an investment and a future retirement spot. Of course, we enjoy getting down to the condo as much as possible in the winter months! I am the mother of a 17 year old daughter and have been married to my husband for 25 years. In addition to managing my rental business, I design and program websites.

Why Shannon Paolocci chose Sanibel Island
My condo is right before you cross the bridge to Sanibel Island, not on the Island itself. You just have to cross the bridge to get to Sanibel. BUT, I feel this is a much better location. Before we bought our unit, we stayed at a number of different resorts on the island. You really feel like you are kind of stuck out there. Groceries cost way more than they should, and traffic is terrible. Most of the resorts have beach access, but the beach is actually a bit of a walk and the resorts we stayed it did not provide beach chairs. My resort has the beach just out the door (with lounge chairs), and you can see it from the lanai. I love to sit on the lanai and watch the boats and the dolphins. I am in the “middle” of everything. I can go to Sanibel and see what there is to see if I want, or I can go to Fort Myers Beach and check out the sites there. Sanibel and Fort Myers Beach are very different. Sanibel is very quiet – most places are closed by 9 or 10 at night, and there is really no where to eat right on the beach. Fort Myers Beach has lots of shopping and bars and restaurants right on the beach. There is usually some sort of street show in the square. It’s a lot more active. Also, if you don’t feel like doing anything at all, you can just hang at the resort and have everything you need. There are restaurants and bars. The pools all have beach/water views. It is a first class resort and the nicest in the area. There is also a Publix grocery store and outlet mall just two miles away. After years of experience with the area, we decided we did not want to buy anything right on the island and fell in love with our resort.
Of course this is just my opinion. But, I have had many previous guests think they would rather be on the island that found that they absolutely loved my resort and my condo. Many have been repeat guests.
What makes this condo unique
This is just the most relaxing and luxurious place to stay! Every guest I have had over the years loves it. I get many repeat guests.
Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to let you know that my family and I (Dan and two teenage girls) had a great time at your beautiful condo. The location couldn’t be better and the condo was equipped with everything we needed.
The girls slept in every morning, while Dan and I explored the premises. It was a huge cost-saver to be able to have breakfast and lunch in the condo each morning and afternoon. For dinner, we explored the area.
