I'm the caretaker for my 95-year-old father and am finally able to get away again since I was in Sanibel in 2000, and vowed to return. It'll only be a four-night stay in late October, and I've been surfing the net looking at properties for days now. I emailed the West Wind Inn twice and never got an answer. I'm also looking at the Best Western. Any other suggestions for a single person who wants a lot of isolated time, walking the beach and shelling? I'd love to have a room with a balcony and view of the Gulf, since I'm from the midwest and ocean deprived, but the prices are $200+ a night. Thanks!
