We had always stayed at Casa Ybel in the past – but this year we could not get the 2 bedroom accommodations that we wanted for the week that we wanted. We had been to Sanibel Moorings for their Garden tour – it looked decent – so we thought to try it. It’s a bit different in feel from Casa... More

Well maintained, quiet, convenient location, staff took care of my golf clubs, no rowdies...nice people. Relaxed atmosphere, kids but no screamers, if you like to bike, run, jog, walk, eat this is the place and they are pet friendly!

We just returned from a 10-day stay at Sanibel Moorings condominium complex at Sanibel, Florida. We enjoyed our stay. The complex itself is very nicely landscaped with well-maintained with mature tropical plantings screening each unit's screened patio area. The landscaping adds to the beauty and serenity of the setting. The complex itself is quite well-managed. The staff are friendly and... More

We've stayed at Sanibel Moorings for the past 10 years and have found that some of the units are in desperate need of updating. Our previous stay (Jan 2016) was definitely the poorest due to a 2 bedroom unit that needs updating and had strong odors of mildew & animals. The staff is always professional but was not very receptive... More

Our room was a great size for the two of us. Although we ate out at the great selection of restaurants on the island most of the time, the kitchen was well supplied with what we would have needed to cook everything in the apartment. The location was fabulous being right on the beach - less than a 5 minute... More

Great accommodations, nice to have the extra amenities that an average condo rental doesn't have. Perfect location, big plus to have bike rentals on the property. Staff friendly and helpful. Beautiful grounds and beach.

We've been vacationing on Sanibel for the past 30 years. Hard to believe, but the only property we have ever stayed at has been the Sanibel Moorings. It is home away from home. Vacations are true family and personal building experiences. My daughter learned both to read and swim while on a Sanibel vacation! Sanibel is unlike any other place... More
