Loved the landscaping and wildlife. Very peaceful and quiet. Clean apartments with everything you need. If not just ask Darwin and it's there in an instant. The beach is a short walk away with no crowds at all, if you do see someone they are alway very pleasant.

This is an adorable boutique motel on the quiet (private beach) west end of Sanibel. One of the owners, Darwin, takes exquisite care of the units and the grounds (this place is SPOTLESS) and is always available by cell phone if you need anything. There are two ponds in the back where you will see lots of wildlife and there... More

We snuck down a few hours for 3 days and wanted to experience Sanibel. The host, Darwin was gracious and helpful, including spot on recommendations for food. He also offered pretty much anything on the grounds if we needed, including laundry facilities, grounds to relax on, bicycles, and his phone number for anything that came up. We stayed in the...

Being a semi-retired couple we were looking for a peaceful place to enjoy the sun and beaches of Florida. This place fit the bill and more. My wife is a nature/bird lover and the pond in back of our unit(i recommend unit1), provided her with some nice viewing and pictures including a close up of the infamous alligators. The beach...

We had stayed in this neighborhood of the west end of Sanibel Island, at least 3 times before, at other small cottages, and walked past West-End Paradise. I always said I wanted to give this place a try, as it was so pretty. Last October, we rented their largest unit, 2 bedroom, 2 bath for our group of 4 (2... More

West-End Paradise was all we wanted it to be for a week during Red Sox baseball spring training. Like many others, we were quite impressed with this first stay here, and with the hard working Darwin Ford who is helpful and available. The place is unbelievably clean, well-stocked with bathroom and bedroom supplies. Our kitchen was in fine working order,... More

This was our 3rd trip to Sanibel and the first time at West End Paradise. We loved it and hope to return to WEP! As others have mentioned, Darwin is very helpful and accommodating. He does a truly wonderful job maintaining the units and the lovely property. We stayed in the 2-bedroom unit. It was impeccably maintained and attractively furnished... More

booked this place based on previous reviews, and they were right! Darwin was the perfect host, meeting us when we arrived and going thru all the details. Room was nice with all the amenities (could use a more modern TV tho....we only used it to catch Olympics late at night). Grounds are VERY nice with two lagoons, lots of fish,... More

Wonderful stay at the West End Paradise. Away from the town of Sanibel; the West End Paradise is a relaxing place. A short five minute walk down a residential street takes you to a wonderful beach for shelling and sunsets. Host Darwin includes everything you need to enjoy yourself; bicycles, canoe, beach chairs, umbrellas, etc. Easy to drive or ride... More
