Sigh!! No one in my family wanted to leave this peaceful getaway. Unit 206 was PERFECT for us! The layout is great, with the master bedroom separated from the guest bedroom by the second full bathroom and a huge walk-in closet in the master to allow for privacy. An open floor plan allows you to see from the kitchen stove... More

OK so it's not the most up to date condo but who cares when there is direct access to a beautiful beach. There are plenty of shells on the beach just outside and it's a short drive from anywhere. Very spacious for a large family of five.

We have visited Sanibel Island for the past nine years and had rented the same place for 8 of those years however our regular place wasn't available this year which turned out for the best. We looked at so many places but none of them looked as amazing as Pelicans Roost so we decided on Pelicans Roost and so glad... More

My friend, Kate, and I go on an annual adventure. I had read about Sanibel Island a few years ago and wanted to go. We started looking for places to stay and the owner of #301 stood out not only because of the beautiful photos of the condo, but for all of the helpful tips he provided for places to... More

We have stayed at several condo complexes on Sanibel, and Pelican's Roost ranks alongside our other top choice. The complex is small enough to feel uncrowded but has all of the amenities that you might need. There is plenty of parking, and the grounds are lovely. All of the rooms are directly oceanfront, and you could not ask for a... More

This is my second time being here. Such a wonderful complex. Condo, 201, is fully stocked, comfy beds. The view from the porch is wonderful. all porches/ decks are screened in. We watched rabbits played, saw many lizards and last time caught a glimpse of an iquana by the pool!! The vegetation is just beautiful. Palm trees, regional trees and... More

Pelican's Roost is a wonderful, small condo complex, where every unit directly faces the Gulf. We stayed in #304, for two weeks in March, 2016, and loved it. It is an older complex, but very well maintained. There is ample parking close to the stairs and elevator. The building sits very close to the beach, so you don't have far... More

Pelican's Roost has become an annual place for my family to visit. The proximity to the beach, only a few steps, is wonderful. Beach chairs and umbrellas are available for resident's use. the units are very well maintained and there is staff available all the time. We accidentally locked ourselves out last year and help was immediate. The view from... More

The kitchen is very up-to-date with granite (stone) countertops, large frig, well stocked with cookware, dinnerware, etc. The view from this condo is excellent!
