Wonderful Condo

Review Submitted 07/08/13

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!

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

Sanibel condo

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the condo. It was very clean. Our toaster was not working and they brought a new one right away. Loved that it had ice maker and washer and dryer. The decor was very pretty in the condo loved the shell mirrors. My kids age 7 and 5 had lots of fun at the pool and ocean. I would recommend to friends and would come back! Thanks for the enjoyable stay from the Ayers

Lovely condo

  • 5 of 5

We shared your lovely condo with another couple and found it to be nicely furnished and extremely comfortable. Mattresses, pillows and bedding were plush and luxurious. We particularly enjoyed dinners, games and wine on the lanai which had the nicest patio furniture we have ever encountered in a rental or time share condo. The complex had a nice small pool with some shaded seating and easy access to the beach where we found many shells after a storm. The complex appears to be well maintained and managed and was a wonderful quiet home base for our stay on Sanibel. We hope we can return in the future.

Great Condo & Complex

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this great condo. The building and complex is nicer than it appears in the photos. Great pool though the Gulf was so warm we spent all of our time there. The staff was great and very accommodating. We had one small issue that was dealt with immediately. Its a short walk to the beach.

Great restaurants, we loved the Island Cow. Pinnocchios has great ice cream. We recommend this great place to anyone.

The condo and vacation was great

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and your condo was very comfortable. We visit Sanibel as a family and rent four unites every three years and have stayed at Sanibel Arms the last several times. HOWEVER, DUE TO THE EVENT while using your group meeting room and YOUR MANAGEMENTS VERY RUDE AND DISRESPECTFUL TREATEMENT WE WILL NOT BE BACK TO SANIBLE ARMS. If you would like to discuss the exact details I would be happy to speak with you further. Feel free to call me at 304-550-4877. My wife and I also own a Condo in South Padre Island Texas and if our guest were ever treated the way we were we would want details. Thanks you.

Very comfortable and quiet.

  • 4 of 5

We have been staying on Sanibel since 2003 and have now stayed in this condo twice. We love Sanibel Arms and the amenities. This end of the island is peaceful and the beach is beautiful. The property is clean but the bedding, especially pillows, needs to be replaced. We would definitely stay here again! Our favorite restaurant is Timbers and the Sanibel Grill next door. Great margaritas!

Car: recommended

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!
