Wonderful Condo

Our family had a terrific stay at this wonderful condo. It was super clean and had everything we needed. We felt right at home there. It was close to both the beautiful beach and really nice pool. There was a grill right behind our building that we used a bunch of times to make hot dogs and burgers. The place was stocked up with beach chairs and umbrellas that we used each day. They also had buckets and shovels for shell collecting. The beds were very comfortable and the master shower was amazing. It was large and modern and it had great water pressure!
Jane, the owner of the condo, was very personable and took the time to respond to any questions that I had. She was a joy to do business with. I would highly recommend renting this condo!

Restful vacation

This condo is lovely. Clean, neat and very quiet. Canal behind the unit is inviting and it is fun to watch the "resident" manatee come out in public quite often. The unit has a well equipped kitchen, comfortable sleeping arrangements, and is located in a quiet area. The gulf is just steps away as well as the pool and clubhouse. Good customer service is available and I would highly recommend this place to anyone wishing to spend quality time on Sanibel Island.

My family had a great stay in this Sanibel condo. It's very clean and nicely decorated as the photos show. Kitchen had everything we needed. The bedrooms look out on the canal, which is a lovely view. The condo is located across the street from the rest of the complex and has easy access to a great uncrowded (in August, anyway) beach, and my son always insisted on a daily swim in the property's pool, which was clean and well-maintained. Staff was helpful with bike rentals (available on site) and the clubhouse has plenty of literature on things to do on the island. We loved our stay and hope to come back!

Perfect.

Our trip went without a hitch thanks in large part to Jane's condo. It is off the beach but no more than a 2 minute walk...and less to the pool. The beach on Sanibel is as advertised…very natural with shells aplenty. The clubhouse is nice and the shaded area beside the pool was a welcome retreat when we wanted to get out of the sun for a while.

Everything about the condo and the grounds at Sanibel Arms is first class. Not on the beaten path of Periwinkle Drive but very close to it. A mile walk, run, or bike ride gets you to Pinocchio's (ice cream) and/or the Lighthouse Grill for breakfast. Money saving tip: if your family can decide on one flavor of ice cream at Pinocchio's then get a quart and take it back to enjoy whenever.

I'm writing (part of this) from the dining room table looking out through the lanai at a very pleasant evening. We just got back from an excellent dinner at the Sanibel Grill (reco'd by the very friendly lady at the office) and of course the required dessert stop at Pinocchio's!

As you can see we've become Sanibel "regulars" very quickly... :) We rented bikes on Tuesday (right from the Sanibel Arms office) and rode to Ding Darling Preserve (about 22 mile round trip)...the island is very bike friendly and the riding trails are great (and flat). My wife and girls just walked down to the pool (which is very well maintained). We went up to Captiva to rent kayaks and had an awesome time paddling out to an island with a cool water trail that takes you through a mangrove forest…including many mangrove crabs…very cool!

We can't believe how nice Jane's place is...and what a lucky find! It was perfect for us! Very spacious, well appointed, and comfortable. We simply couldn't have asked for more. Having 2 bedrooms and 2 baths was so nice and convenient. You can't get that in a hotel. The kitchen and dining table served very well for some breakfasts, lunches, and a couple dinners. We are spoiled now and will likely never stay in a hotel again!

And I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the master bath shower...simply elegant.

Best,
Dwayne Carr

We've stayed in unit A1 at Sanibel Arms twice so far and will definitely be back again. We immediately felt right at home in this comfortable condo. We love the fact that we can cook our meals in the well equipped kitchen and the BBQ option around back is great! The sunset on the canal is a beautiful view while your working at the grill !!
We enjoyed eating our dinners in the lanai and watching movies at night. The shower is amazing and the beds are super comfortabl So after a day biking through the nature preserves, swimming in the pool or searching for shells on the beach, we had this lovely place to come home to!
Thank you Jane and Pierre

This is in a quiet residential ares, part of a complex with 64 units. It is on the east end of the island. The complex's beach front provides wonderful swimming and fishing but is best known for the shelling. A mile walk down the beach leads to the historic light houses and fishing pier. Bicycles are available for rent on the property to use on the 25 miles of bike paths. There is a very good local taxi service which we use to pick us up at the airport as well as occasional shopping on and off the island. There are restaurants and shops within walking distance of the condo. There is a door from our lanai which opens to the canal where you can moor your boat (with no charge) and/or fish, barbeque or sit and watch the sunset! The complex also has a great swimming pool and clubhouse. The nature preserves and animal refuges are our favourite places to discover. Also, close by are fitness centres, spas, tennis courts, golf clubs, boat rentals/tours. Paradise itself!
