Visit the Beaches For Sun and Shells

The Sanibel Island Lighthouse Beach is a great place to view the Sanibel Island Lighthouse. While the lighthouse is not open to the public, you can view it from the beach. The beach has nice shells, but swimming is not recommended due to the strong cross currents. Gulfside City Park, however, also has beach access. It is open to the public. The park features picnic areas, trails, and an old cemetery. It is a great place for relaxing.

Additionally, they have world record sized shells and shells used in art, so there is something to interest everyone. Another museum, the Sanibel Historic Museum and Village strives to preserve the history of the island. It starts with exhibits that tell the tales of the first Spanish settlers and continues to the 1800s and the pioneers who lived on Sanibel Island at that time. Seven buildings were moved to the museum from different parts of the island. They were restored to look the way they did during the period they were built. These buildings encompass the village portion of the museum and can be visited by museum guests.

I was very happy with the location. I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Nice view of the beach and pool. Very spacious. Comfy bedding. Ceiling fans need to be replaced and ice machine in the fridge was not working when we arrived. Bathroom floors need a good cleaning. Too many nic nacs. I would suggest adding a chain lock up high on the doors for families with small children.

I really enjoyed the small size of Island Inn. I have nothing negative to say about 305 Kimball lodge. It is one of the nicer condo that I have rented. The Condo is nicely decorated with an updated bathroom. There are windows across the beach side of the condo which provides the morning view of the beach. The condo is on the third floor with access via stairs or elevator. During my visit there were carts by the elevator that allowed me to make one trip in getting stuff to the condo. The bed was comfortable and there was only one night where I could hear the people across/down the hall. The parking spot for this condo is away from the building but was not an issue for me. There is a larger tv in the living area and a small TV in the bed room. There is cable and internet access. I did not cook but there is a stove and microwave. There is a laundry room on the third floor, Laundry detergent was available. I brought beach towels and a hair dryer but both were available in the condo. Ice machine on the 1st floor. I did not use the pool however the pool is smaller in size than some of the condos that I have stayed at.
