|Minimum Stay||2 - 4 nights|
Welcome to our crisp and green Apartment Sanibel!
The apartment, which is furnished primarily in white, is decorated with green pillows, carpets, pictures etc.
If you feel up for a cozy night at home you can enjoy a show on TV or a DVD in excellent quality while relaxing on the sofa or in one of the comfortable wicker chairs.
If you are a family with two children the apartment might be especially appealing since it has two bedrooms. An additional crib for a baby or a toddler can be set up in one of the bedrooms. Of course, Apartment Sanibel is equipped with a crib and fitting sheets and covers, a baby highchair, and baby towels.
The apartment has an interior living room.
In the kitchen, your family will find a spacious counter to eat on. As a special treat, you’ll find a small door which will lead you along a staircase right into our beautiful garden in the back.
The kitchen is equipped with many dishes and extras so you’ll have anything you might need.
In the bathroom, you’ll find plenty of towels. The bathroom was newly renovated in 2016.
It goes without saying that Apartment Sanibel is not only suitable for families with children. Everybody will feel right at home in it!

We had a wonderful time in Villa Barra. Everything was clean and well-maintained.
Our biggest highlight was the the boat-trip with Marco!!! We saw Manatees and Dolphins and had a lot of fun on board....AWESOME
If we´ll come back again to Florida, we definitely want to stay in this house again...
Our stay at was really terrific! Our room was comfortable, clean and charming. Alex met us with a warm, gracious welcome and many helpful tips.
The property was well maintained and the new pool very lovely.
In spite of children and babies staying also, it was very quiet in our room. (granted, we ran the AC units.)
The bed was very comfortable and inviting. (and, we are quite discerning, being vacation rental owners for 20 years... and, we sleep on a temperpedic at home..)
We have already made our reservations for next year... need we say more?
The best feature of this rental home is its location close to all services and walkable to the Edison and Ford Estates on McGregor Blvd. Free parking and laundry services are available. The pool area is nice but there is no shade options unless you leave it for the gazebo outside.
However, this building is stuck in the last century. Watching TV is impossible in some of the units since NO CABLE is offered and the local service relies on the outdated option of RABBIT EARS. Who knew such a device was still available! Despite all attempts to move it around to find a good position, it never worked and the picture would get buzzy, or worse, freeze intermittantly and randomly making it impossible to watch an entire show.
There are several options for seating, however, none of them are comfortable. The bed was a chiropracter's dream since it was tilting to one side and the mattress was hard which led to waking up with a backache.
There are significant safety concerns. There is only a steep, narrow staircase and no second escape option such as a fire escape from the top floor to use in a fire emergency.
The shower had the plumbing misfitted so that the hot and cold knobs are reversed but there is no sign to warn of this error and there is a potential for a burn to occur until you figure out this mistake exists. The bathroom has no window or fan so that it quickly overheats when taking a shower and the condensation builds up creating a mildew problem on the walls of the shower.
This is our 4th time returning to Villa Barra. We love staying here as it provides us with all our basic needs eg. kitchen. We enjoy having breakfast on the front porch and eating supper on the picnic table at the back. If there has ever been any questions or concerns, the owner and staff quickly respond to our needs which is greatly appreciated. You'll enjoy this place as a good spot from which to lay your head after doing all your tripping around!!
This was a really enjoyable place to stay. The location is great being right downtown within walking distance of the Edison/Ford winter homes. (A must see attraction) Our Studio Orlando was clean and comfortable. We met with the property manager soon after we arrived and he was helpful in orienting us to the house and surrounding attractions. We would definitely book again. If stairs are a problem try to book a downstairs studio.
Our apartment (Tampa) had nice accommodations for 2 persons. We particularly enjoyed the privacy afforded by the property and the location near downtown Ft Myers which has a lot going for it. Didn't use the pool but did use the bicycles. Customer service was very good. We felt that this property was a good value and we would use it again.
