We just spent another blissful end-of-January week at Sanibel Moorings--our fifth visit. What a great place! The complex is right on both the beach and canal docks. The beach is beautiful with miles of sand, gently lapping waves and sea shells galore. The grounds are idyllic, meticulously maintained and loaded with horticultural beauty and interest. We took the garden tour and later accompanied the grounds-keeper as he picked and gave us star fruit! Our condo was immaculate, with all the conveniences--full-size refrigerator, oven, microwave, dishwasher, wide-screen TVs with cable, DVD players (a large DVD lending library in the office rents DVDs for a dollar a day) and wireless connectivity. New stainless steel barbecue grills, each with its own box garden filled with ready-to-pick herbs, are in the central garden. A coin-operated laundry is in the center of the complex. Our two kids (ages 8 and 9) enjoyed hour upon hour in the huge heated pool. The staff and other vacationers are welcoming. Kayaks and bicycles are available for a nominal rental. Bicycle paths abound. Take a bus tour of the nearby nature preserve, and be surrounded by every imaginable species of bird, with a well-informed guide to tell you what you're seeing. (Lewis was awesome.) The complex office is run with the precision of a cesium clock. A variety of restaurants are nearby. The rates are very reasonable. Can it get any better? --The James Mumma Family
