Just amazing. Homey and comfortable. They think of everything from shelling supplies to baby yellow crowned night herons in a nest outside our rooms. Short walk to beautiful beach with very few other people. Just perfect.

Lovely cottage style place to stay *right* by Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge with the beach a short walk down the road. And bonus!- you will see lots of nature in your backyard while you're there, including a friendly small alligator and birds, birds, birds! The suites are all super clean, perfectly stocked and comfortable. The owner/operator Darwin was incredibly helpful... More

We love this place, and shouldn't review it so we can be sure to find a spot here every March. Here's why we like it so much, and have stayed here each spring for a number of years. It is peaceful, located between Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge and Bowman's Beach, much closer to Captiva than the Sanibel Causeway. It... More

Great value! Quiet location with nearby beach location. Very well maintained & decorated. Located by a canal where we watched the birds every morning from our lanai or chairs outside. We grilled a couple nights or had a kitchen to have some meals too. We would definitely stay again!

West-End Paradise is away for the big hotels and condos of Sanibel. It is almost part of the wildlife refuge in a quiet residential neighborhood. Darwin was very pleasant and helpful. The private beach access of the neighborhood is easy access and you have a parking permit during your stay. We loved the uncrowded beach and the great sunset opportunities.... More

Over the last 20 years, we have visited Sanibel Island about 8 times, staying in many different parts of the Island. We prefer the "Small Inns and Cottages" of the Island, and have come to favor West-End Paradise. On an acre of land, about a block from the beach, with parking right at the beach for people of the neighborhood... More

Spent four lovely nights here in July. Property spotlessly clean, everything you need for a relaxing break. Owner very helpful and his dining recommendations were excellent. Private beach beautiful, usually only two or three families using it at any one time. Free use of cycles much appreciated. If you want a peaceful setting with easy access to the island it... More

This is a perfect location for you if you like peace and quiet. Located in a small subdivision, you can use the neighborhood private beach access. You even get a parking permit, which is necessary on this island. The beach access is down the street, about 1/4 mile. The complex is only 2 miles west of the Ding Darling National... More

Overall our stay was a good one. The house was clean and located near the beach (3 minute drive) it was too hot to walk in August. The only negative was the bed was very, very firm. So firm that we opted to use the air mattress in the closet. It was more comfortable than the bed. Darwin was helpful... More
