My family recently returned from our week long stay at Pelicans Roost in Unit 301. This unit is just beautiful - decorated in a seaside motif by the owner with beautiful upgrades like stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, custom cabinets, and incredibly comfortable beds. This was my husbands third trip to Pelicans Roost; he visited twice in his childhood almost... More

The best thing about this unit is the view of the gulf. Another nice thing is that the second bedroom has two full-size beds, very nice for our four children so no one had to sleep on the pull-out couch. The pool was nice. I love how close the condos are to the beach. There are toys, beach chairs and... More

We have been coming to Pelican's Roost for 5 years, stayed in various units, and have never been disappointed! Units are well-maintained, just a few yards to the beach, great Gulf views, and wonderful staff make this a fantastic choice for a vacation rental. We love Sanibel and Pelican's Roost so much that we have decided to visit TWICE a... More

We stayed in #204. It's a home away from home with everything you need and then more. Love having laundry right in the condo. It just comes in so handy. Loved the screened porch and the screened windows in the main bedroom. Perfect for listening to the ocean if it wasn't so hot outside. They supply tons of beach things... More

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
