This was a wonderful find located in a special spot on the planet. Sanibel Island is a paradise in Florida with a unique orientation to the Gulf of Mexico. The east west positioning of the island gives the beaches some of the best shelling. On every one of our daily trips to the private beach access, the shells were covering... More

Cute little place in great location. Quiet end of the island. Set in a very small residential subdivision of older and refreshingly modest homes. Short walk to a great stretch of beach. Beautifully landscaped and meticulously maintained by Darwin, the owner. No need to venture to the nature preserve, alligator in the pond on the property. Although, if you are... More

Hi Folks. West End Paradise continues to be one of my top ten places to stay. We stayed over the Christmas - New Year break 2014-2015 again. Darwin Ford continues his hands on management of his property and does an excellent job. The suites continue to be immaculate. I wish Darwin continued success in the new year. Keep doing what...

It was an amazing experience. Room are very well furnished and clean. The owner is very friendly and useful. Use of a semi private beach and free bikes/beach stuff to use a big plus. Great experience. Thanks

Jivermo46 sums up the experience at West-End Paradise very well. Extras such as beach items (shelling equipment, kids beach toys, a floating noodle, towels, chairs and umbrella) and bikes are great. Access to the private beach is walkable but is easier to drive if you are bringing chairs etc.. The beach is AMAZING! Super clean and full of shells! If... More

What more can I say...the prior reviewers have it covered. But I'll try: West-End Paradise is a Old Florida style place to stay that has been brought into the 21st Century. Darwin has bridged the gap here, providing old style hospitality and service into a delightful, homey vacation spot. There are so many free extras here-your host has given much... More

Four of us spent 3 days in the 2-bedroom suite. It had a full kitchen, huge living room, and very large screened porch. This place is probably one of the cleanest places I have ever stayed at, and it is stocked with anything you could possibly want. The kitchen is well equipped and we cooked several meals there. (The dishwasher... More

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...
