“Great location, beautiful ocean views, spacious, clean 2 bedroom condo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2011

My family and I traveled to Sanibel Island over Memorial day weekend and stayed at the Pelican's Roost. We have two kids under 10 and we rented a 2 bedroom, 2 bath oceanfront condo. We were on the third floor and it had beautiful views of the ocean from the living room and the master bedroom. It was clean, spacious and very comfortable. All rooms face the ocean and the first floor is actually the second floor so all rooms have a view of the ocean. They are on a private beach and have chairs, umbrellas and towels for you use. The beach was great, the pool was nice and we had an overall good time. We would definitely return to this place again.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 3rd floor and it was great.

we stayed right over easter weekend. they were very accomidating since our arrival and departure time was not the norm. the room was clean and bright. the balcony looked right onto the beach which was nice and close to the condo. the beach was beautiful and was a bit crowded the first 2 days we were there but was practically deserted the day after easter. i would definitley return there. just not with my kids. they fought too much. if i am going to paridise i think its better with just my husband. the only draw back was the blobs of something all over the beach our last day. my husband thinks they were tar balls but besides that we absolutely loved it. we will be back.

Talk about paradise! This was one of the best vacations I have ever taken! The accomadations at Pelican Roost were wonderful! Our condo was clean, beautifully decorated, and had all the amenities to make our stay comfortable! Pelican Roost has only 21 condos and its small size allows for privacy, quiet, and space. It's facilities included beachfront property with gorgeous views of the Gulf from your condo, pool, and two tennis courts.
If your vacation plans include rest and relaxation with a magnificent view, this is the place for you! I plan on making this an annual trip!

Room Tip: Specify if you prefer a non-smoking condo.

After Christmas our family decided to take a family vacation, 6 adults and 2 children. We use to vacation on Sanibel Island in the late 70's early 80's and thought it would be nice to visit the island again. We checked several condos' but decided to stay at Pelican's Roost. We booked 3 units and they were all really nice, clean and well equipped. All the rooms had great views of the ocean and beach. Also the office manager Leslie and Carl were great and very helpful with our needs. Thanks to Pelican's Roost for such a great family vacation and great memories.

We have stayed at Pelicans Roost for the last three years, renting with others in our family. The condos all have wonderful gulf views and have everything one could need to enjoy a beach vacation.
This past summer we decided to try a different condo. When making our selection, we looked at the descriptions of the units at the website. Some were listed as smoking units, some did not make reference to smoking.
When we arrived and found our unit, there was a strong smoke smell in the unit. We reported the smell immediately and were informed that the owner does allow smoking, but does not list it as a smoking unit. We asked to be moved, but all the units were occupied for the week, so we suffered through with a dozen scented candles constantly burning.
Be sure to ask the manager specifically about smoking if this is an issue for you. Do not rely on the website information.

We have been staying at Pelicans Roost for the past four years and have many memories to last a lifetime! My husband,two daughters,and I awake early every morning to go "shelling" on the beach,which is a short walk from Pelicans Roost where every condo enjoys an ocean view! Last year,we celebrated our 10 year anniversary together by renewing our wedding vows right on the beach at sunset with our two girls and parents at our side. The girls enjoy the pool all day and at Happy Hour--we walk over to Jacaranda's for some tasty 1/2 price appetizers and a cocktail! Later,we watch the sun set off our Pelicans Roost balcony and retreat to the master bedroom to fall asleep to the sound of the ocean. Paradise in the States!

We have been going to Pelicans roost for a long time and we love it. The manager like us all has good days and bad days. The only time I see her is checking in and checking out. It is so beautiful there. We have our coffee on the porch in the morning and see Dolphins feeding, birds everywhere, and there is always a couple of bunnies playing in the yard. There is an elevator that helps with luggage and groceries. The trolly will come pick you up and take you to Sanibel Harbor where there are some great snorkeling and marine biology trips. Shopping and eating are great. A short drive to Captiva to the muckey Duck or Bubble room will fill you up. There are also fun trips to Cayo Costa for snorkeling. It is a wonderful family place and I recommend it to everyone
