My husband and I stayed for our honeymoon and I couldn't be happier with my stay. We stayed in Captain Ed. It was perfect, just what we needed. The whole place has personality. The owner is super nice! It is only five minutes away from the beach (they even offer bikes to ride). And it's right in the middle of... More

Charming old Florida style motel. Nothing fancy, but Ron has decorated with some nice touches. We stayed in Caloosa, and while it was close to the street, we weren't bothered by traffic noise. The short walk to the beach with complimentary chairs and umbrellas a big plus, don't waste your time driving to other beaches and dealing with traffic and... More

When my wife and I were planning our vacation to Sanibel, we had some hesitation about going back to The Palmview again. The reason was because our previous 2 stays were not as pleasant as we had previously expreienced, but thought we would give it one more try. We are very glad that we did. The new Manager, Ron, has... More

I can't overstate how fantastic our stay was at the PalmView. Ron was friendly and warm, and so incredibly helpful when we were discussing our various plans for activities on Sanibel and Captiva. We stayed in the Palm Retreat room which was perfect for our traveling group (1 couple and a single). The fully stocked kitchen and available grill were... More

We stayed for three night at the Palmview Inn! The unit was very spacious and super clean! We felt very comfortable! You have your own beachchairs and towels in your room! There are four bycicles you chan use for free and a nice BBQ-Area! We can highly recommend this accommodation!!

Ron is a great manager, very friendly and helpful. He kindly printed off our boarding passes for us as we were heading back home from there and even... More

Just got home from The PalmView! What a great quiet place!! Ron made you feel very welcome and not just a reservation number. He showed us everything around and had some great advise on where to eat and where to avoid. It was a get-away for my husband and I to celebrate our 20th anniversary. If you are looking for... More

We actually stayed at their property on Shell Basket Lane it was the perfect place to go with the family! And it's pet friendly! 300 feet from the ocean, clean, complete with everything you need from a full kitchen to beach chairs etc.... No need to pack a lot! We will definitely be going back and bringing friends. (We actually... More
