About The Owner

Both my wife and I are educators and this allows us long weekends and summer days at our island paradise. The kids are able to travel with us and it's a short trip from Fort Lauderdale to the island....

The Owner purchased this condo in 2011

Why The Owner chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

After many years of dreaming of an island getaway on Sanibel Island we were very fortunate to purchase this wonderful unit in Sanibel Arms. We have affectionately dubbed it the Byrd's Nest and will be spending several long weekends enjoying our island getaway with our boys. Once over the causeway and onto the island, you are only a short 1-2 minutes straight down Lundgren and left onto E. Gulf Drive from our island home. It is conveniently located near shopping, churches, and attractions like our famous lighthouse.

What makes this condo unique

While staying at the condo, we enjoy reading, shelling, fishing, cycling, swimming and just relaxing on this peaceful island. Our home away from home is fully equipped so all we need to bring are our swimsuits and personal items.

So very comfortable :)

  • 5 of 5

The kitchen was well stocked with all the items we needed to make lovely meals. The bed was comfortable and would have stayed there if not for the lovely access to the beach with wonderful sunrises. The pool was cool and inviting after a morning of shopping. We were so pleased that there are future plans to return to the "Byrds Nest".

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This unit was on beautiful grounds that led straight to the beach. The complex provided chairs and umbrellas at the beach and the owners provided additional chairs to take to the beach. A morning walk along the beach to the lighthouse was a great way to start the day. The unit had everything we needed for a comfortable week. We will return!

The condo area was nice and we liked our spot on the beach.

  • 4 of 5

Nice area, loved Sanibel and the fact we could go on the beach every morning then ride bikes into town. Our condo was a bit tight for 4 people and the spare bed was not made up and could hardly find sheets or blankets, but made do. It was not ready at 3pm so had to walk around for awhile. There are other units with screened porches which is nice, but ours was a good price range that fit well. We would come back to Sanibel again!

Owner's Response: Hi, Thanks for choosing to stay with us and for your review. Again, I would like to apologize for our condo not being ready prior to your arrival. As you were able to see from all our previous reviews, we pride ourselves on providing a quality, enjoyable and affordable experience for all our guests. This is the first and only time our housekeeping service has not provided excellent service and we have addressed this with them. The linens we provide for the queen sleeper are stored in the guest closet and we have not experienced guests having difficulty finding them, but we will label them more clearly. Thanks again and we hope you will consider staying with us in the future. Carlton & Mary

Byrds nest paradise

  • 5 of 5

An excellent condo...location is so near to the beach ...just a few steps and all onsite

Very neatly equipped .....and lovely little touchs like the "Byrd's Nest" bottles of drinking water and sweets provided on arrival!

The bed was very comfy with crisp linens, and the bedroom and the lounge a really good size

The kitchen was a little small, but well equipped and adequate for a short stay for 2

All was immaculately clean and fresh

The only downside is that, depending on neighbours, it can be a little noisy...but nothing to keep you awake at all , and something you cannot avoid at times with a small condo in a block

Sanibel Arms is charming and I particularly liked the shell washing station as you left the beach..really neat

the beach is great with so so many shells..and often dolphins to see in the shallow waters... idyllic..never crowded

this was our second stay at theSanibel Arms

Unfortunately the BBQ lunch offered is now only every other week , and not on our week! that was unfortunate for us

The Island of Sanibel itself is gorgeous and unspoilt..with excellent opportunities to kayak and cycle, boat trips...the wildlife of the nature reserve is amazing

The restaurants have great atmosphere, and we particularly like the Island Cow for friendliness, and Doc's for a great bar and excellent giant prawns!

looking forward to booking for a third visit!

We love this unit

  • 5 of 5

Our fourth stay in this unit at Sanibel Arms, and we loved it. The condo is nicely appointed, perfectly located, and relaxing to be in. We stayed two weeks and in one day the weather was a little cool. We were just as happy relaxing in this unit for the day as we were going to the beach.

A few years ago we gave up renting cars for Sanibel and instead do everything by bike. The complex had them on site for rental by hour, day, or week. Great rate, easy to get, and totally wonderful. We'd ride to Bailey's or Jerry's every day for groceries, and grill at the condo grill area. The location of the condo made this easy. It's a ten minute bike ride to Perriwinkle and Casa Y Bel, and another ten to get to Tarpon Bay Road and Perriwinkle. The East side is five minutes.

This condo complex is our favorite (after fourth years of annual visits), and this unit is wonderful. The owner is hospitable and a pleasure to interact with. The price is very reasonable and the location in the complex gives a bit of privacy which we like.

Condominium staff are uniformly helpful and friendly. The grounds are very well kept and the pool is fresh.

I really cannot think of a better place on the island.
