We just returned from our first trip to Sanibel and our stay at Pelicans Roost #301 only made our trip more special. The owner, Mike, sent me many emails regarding things to do to entertain our 3 young children, along with many restaurant recommendations. The unit was updated and very clean. Pelicans Roost is very quiet and with only 21... More

My family has come to Sanibel for years for the beautiful, open beaches. We were so pleasantly surprised to stay in unit 101 at Pelican's Roost. The room had a great view of the beach and we listened to the waves every night from the porch and master bedroom. We enjoyed the newly remodeled kitchen with granite counters. We look... More

We're so glad that you enjoyed your stay in unit #101. They have done a lovely remodel and our guests have really appreciated the many upgrades. As you know, all of our units are located directly on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico which makes our small complex very unique on Sanibel. We hope to see you soon! More

We vacationed here for many years, and always loved it! The units were nicely decorated and appointed. The price was reasonable. We must have stayed there five or six times before we moved to southwest FL and always found it terrific. Would recommend it with anyone with a family/

Pelicans Roost #304 is perfect. Extremely well equipped, especially with electronics. The view from the lanai is fabulous. We relaxed and enjoyed having the grandchildren (ages 4 & 8) visit for a few days. They loved the gulf and especially the pool. Mike obviously takes pride in #304. Its also obvious that the management of Pelicans Roost takes great care... More

My wife and I stay at #304 the first week of March 2014 and found this unit and location our favorite ever! We have stayed down the beach about a mile the last couple of years and a private beach house the 10 years before and nothing matches the privacy and preserve like atmosphere. The second you pull in to... More

Loved this place! Never had to leave the beach . Even when in the condo, you just had to look out the windows to see the crashing waves. Fell asleep to the peaceful sound every night. The condo is close to everything and was extremely clean. Carl, the manager, was very helpful. Always there if you needed help. Would not... More

I take my mother in-law and two girls every year to the Pelicans Roost over spring break. The units are all privately owned so they vary from unit to unit; some are more updated than others. The property is very pretty and clean. My girls love the pool. They can swim for hours because it is always the right temperature... More

We stayed in Pelican's Roost #304 after reading about how great it was here. We have two little kids --ages 5 and 7-- and it was perfect for our family. There are two big bedrooms both with adjoining bathrooms with showers and double sinks so we had our privacy and the kids could have their space too. The kitchen was... More

My friends and I had an incredible week at beautiful Pelicans Roost on Sanibel Island. We enjoyed the gorgeous sunrises, beach and shelling. We have stayed in many condos and time shares over the years, however 301 had special touches and decorating which truly made us all feel very welcome.
