Our holiday at Sanibel Moorings was fantastic. We stayed in one of the units canal side near the pool. The walk to the beach was 5 minutes. The walk to the pool - 2 minutes. The room was clean, comfortable, nicely furnished - it had everything we needed. It is a well used unit and is showing some wear and... More

My husband, dog and I spent a week at xmas here. It's gorgeous! The flowers, landscaping, and grounds are superior. Pool is great. close to ocean. Quiet, safe, secure, convenient. Amenities like towel exchange and beach chairs! Worth the money.

Be aware. We had to cancel our reservation for March due to our children's conflicting Spring Break schedule (change in school). We were charged a $100 cancellation fee, despite the fact we cancelled 66 days in advance. In all my years of travel, have never encountered such a steep penalty. Even the manager wouldn't waive or lower the penalty. If... More

Stayed at Sanibel Moorings recently for a week. Everything was exceptional from check-in to check-out. The grounds are beautifully maintained. The pool area and laundry are the cleanest I've seen anywhere. Before we left we reserved 9 nights next year. Very good value.

This centrally located is almost perfect. Great beach, pool,docks and location give you all you need to enjoy your vacation. They provide bike rentals which are highly recommended on this island. The only recommendation I would make is to rent a second floor unit. There is not any insulation or soundproofing between the floors and it can get annoying. The... More

Another wonderful stay at Sanibel Moorings!! Clean, layed back, family oriented and beautiful. Condo has all the amenities needed. We recommend grocery shopping prior to coming over the bridge to Sanibel. Definitely, bring your own beach towels and something to keep you shells in. Gas grills provided in the courtyard work great and are a nice feature. We barbecued our... More

Spent three nights at Sanibel Moorings, a community of condos on the beach of Sanibel Island. Units vary in size and décor, but all seem to have full kitchens and balconies/patios. Best of all, it's just a short walk through the beautifully landscaped property to the beach (maybe 2-5 minutes, depending on where your condo is and how fast you... More
