Fairly disappointed, rented a 2 seater and a single on Thursday 9.18.2014 at 2:00pm, Drove to Captiva and back to the Condo around 4:30pm. Started raining and could not use the rest of the day. Friday morning wanted to tour the Island Lighthouse, back to Captiva, Ding Darling. Unfortunately rained all night, woke up still raining. Called Billy's on Periwinkle... More

Lots of bike rental & helmet choices for everyone in the family by the hour, day or week. Biking on Sanibel can be fun, but careful for the traffic on the main road, which can sometimes be challenging with kids. Easy riding environment in most places... Fun to ride to the light house and spot the dolphins swimming just off... More

Since renting a car seemed unnecessary on the island, we chose to rent scooters to get to Captiva from Sanibel. It was a success and a great mode of transportation! Had a blast with the scooters. Rented the for 4-8 hours and it was well worth the 50 bucks each. Highly recommend singles versus the double seater for 2 people... More

We rented bikes here to ride around Sanibel. The bikes were great and we were in and out fast. I would highly recommend renting from Billy's if you want to bike around the island to enjoy the sights!

My family and I have been vacationing in Sanibel Island since 1998. During every vacation, we have rented bikes from Billy's Rentals. We typical rent one of a few combinations: each have their own bike, single bikes and a tandem bike, tandem bike and a surrey, or single bikes and a surrey. No matter which combination we choose, we find... More

We got what we call the suburban bike. The 4 seater Surrey. When we got there we saw it had a place for 2 little ppl up front. So our family of 6 was able all go together and we loved it. 3 hours and 10 miles later we had a blast!

My family and I are vacationing in Sanibel Island for the first time in about 15 years. We had many memorable pictures of us riding bikes, tandems, and surreys around the island. We aimed to recreate those memories during this vacation and thanks to Billy's, we were able to do just that. You can call Billy's to make a reservation... More

We rented a surrey when we visited years ago, with our daughters in the front. Many years later, we have visited again on two days with a combination of surrey and tandem, then individual bikes and another tandem. Billy's was fantastic with all the different bikes--all were in great shape and tires inflated properly, seats were adjusted per request, and... More

Billy's bike rentals was amazing! There were 9 of us visiting Sanibel, 5 of those being teenagers/early 20s. We rented 5 bikes for the week we were there. I can honestly say the bikes got used everyday we were there! It was great for the kids to be able to ride and do things independently of the parents! Billy's was... More
