We have friends in Fort Myers and try to visit them on our biennial trips to Florida. As they live quite close to the causeway to Sanibel Island, it is very convenient for us to stay on the island. The only downside is that the units are relatively expensive to rent but for the extra money you do get a... More

We love Sanibel Arms!!! When we arrive there, we can take a deep breath and just relax. The ladies in the office have become friends and they make sure that everything on the property is well maintained and well run. We stay there 3 or 4 times a year and have never been unhappy or disappointed with anything. We are... More

Nine days and counting......that's how close we are to returning to Sanibel island and in particular The Sanibel Arms Condominiums - we wouldn't stay anywhere else! Great location; wonderful staff; a "Home away from Home"! We look forward very much to our Annual Visit. Sanibel Island is an amazing place and these Condos provide the perfect base from which to...

The units are not fancy but are very well equipped , large enough and very clean . The office and booking staff are terrific -- they couldn't be more... More

My husband & I stayed at Sanibel Arms in March of 2015. Got away from snowy, cold , grey Ohio. We had a beautiful, comfortable unit, right across the street from the Gulf. The beach was beautiful, and the staff were so helpful and nice. They even sit out chairs and umbrellas on the beach for your convenience. Blue sky... More

It's our little slice of heaven when we stay at Sanibel Arms. Whether it's a walk on the beach each morning, relaxing by the canal or relaxing in the beautiful condo. We count the days until we return.

We stayed in C-2 on the canal side. Lovely unit and we loved the quiet setting. We grilled out back by the canal and watched the fish, otters, and even manatee while we ate dinner at the picnic table . Everyone was very friendly. We are going back next year.

Thank you for your review. We are so happy you had a wonderful experience on our Dockside. It is such a peaceful place, and so special when you see the wildlife! Wow, otters are not seen very often but our manatee love it. We look forward to seeing you again! More

We totally enjoyed our stay at Sanibel Arms condos. The condo was very clean and well maintained. The only thing I would like to see would be a towel exchange. This is the only condo we have stayed at that I remember that we couldn't exchange our used towels for clean ones. Guess I should have read the upfront instructions... More

We have stayed at Sanibel Arms West a few times and this time at the" original" Sanibel Arms next door. As usual, we had a great time on the Island, it has so much to offer. Unfortunately we cannot recommend Unit D7. This unit is very old and needs an urgent renovation. The Management of the Condos were very helpful... More
