My daughter and I stayed in the Pirate's Cove suite. It was very clean, well stocked and the owner was on site who was very friendly and helpful. I'm sorry I didn't get to say goodbye. Light green walls and fun print furniture decorated the living room and mango colored walls with a king bed was the bedroom. The outside...

We booked on www from the UK. Ron dealt with all queries promptly, and the palmview was just as we expected from the website, and reviews. We stayed a week in Captain Eds, a clean bright bedsit style room. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed ( i cooked every night), we even raided the small dvd collection in...

Loved every moment there!! The place we stayed was perfect. We had access bikes which was awesome and the beach was maybe a 5 min walk (3min with the bikes). And Ron was amazing! Very attentive and made sure all our needs were met!! Will definitely be staying there again!!!

Great convenience, just a tad pricey, but it was peak season and we knew this was a good place from previous visits. Walking distance to the beach (bikes also available to go to town to avoid driving in the bumper-to-bumper traffic!). Overall a great stay.

We flew to Sanibel on a bit of a whim cuz airfare was super cheap and decided to make this trip as inexpensive as possible overall- to just enjoy the sun and the beach. We stayed in the Pirate Cove unit. For the price ($119/night) we were satisfied. Kitchen was more than adequate. Mattress was hard. Unit was clean. The...

Ron was an amazing host. Took the time to explain everything we could ever need to know about staying in the rooms. They had blenders/good Tommy Bahama beach chairs/ forks & knives/ glasses.. and to top it off the rooms were absolutely spotless.. So nice and clean! They even had ice made for us. Extra pillows in the closets..We liked...

We stayed in Sandpiper Room #1 last year for our honeymoon and we are going again this year for our anniversary. Everything was perfect. Ron, the owner, was able to accommodate us since we were arriving late after our wedding. The room was nice and spacious, clean, and everything we could have hoped for. There is a fully equipped kitchen...

I recently stayed here for two nights and thoroughly loved it. I'll definitely return! The room was extremely clean (esp for a beach location). The kitchen was well stocked with utensils, pots, cups, etc - everything I could think of wanting. It does have a smaller stove/oven (the unit I was in at least) which was fine - still could...

“If there is no duplex, I'd go for that. There was one "duplex" where the units were separated by a banquet hall of sorts. If no banquet was going on, I'd choose to be in one of those units as your neighbor would not be on the other side of your wall. One of those units was closest unit to the street. However, there was not a whole lot of traffic on the street while we were there. Virtually none at night, and one of our nights was New Year's Eve. There was a unit attached to the office that seemed furthest from the street. I might go for that one first.”
