We have decided to take the kids to Sanibel for 3 nights in June. We have never been there. Our vacation goal is just to relax, do some shelling, some very light shopping, a fresh seafood dinner and that's about it. Is it unrealistic to think we don't need a car? Are there car services available from the airport to Sanibel? Do you have any recommendations for a hotel on the beach that is close to a few shops and a small selection of restaurants. After Sanibel, we are planning on taking the ferry from Ft Meyers to Key West for another 3 or 4 days. I am just assuming that I can take a taxi from our Sanibel hotel to the ferry. Anyone have any advice on this plan?
I am so torn on picking a hotel on Sanibel. There are so many that look fantastic. We don't need fancy, but we do need to be on the beach. Any thoughts on Gulf Breeze Cottages? Good location? They don't have a pool, tho. Any recommendations for a cottage on the beach with a small pool?
Sorry for the rambling. I have been researching Sanibel for a few weeks now, and my head is just swimming. I need help!
