This is a fantastic place to stay, everything about it is perfect. The room was very clean and very well equipped. Beautiful well maintained surroundings with a seated area and a BBQ area. I stayed in Captain Eds, and my kids also loved it, 5 minute walk to the beach and also close to the Starfish grille makes this excellent... More

We stayed at the hideaway at Palm View. Exactly what we needed for two people. Full kitchen and bedroom. Very clean and supplied with everything you need including beach chairs, towels and bikes. Location is great with the beach a 5 minute walk away and many good restaurants close by. The grounds were well kept and it was very quiet.... More

We stayed at the Pirate's Cove cottage at Palm View. It was very spacious for the two of us and had a full kitchen which was great for in-room breakfast. The location was convenient to the beach and the bike trails. The Palm View provided bikes, beach chairs and a beach umbrella which was very helpful.

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!!
