“Great place to stay with kids!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2007

With no recent reviews of this property we were a little apprehensive. Well, you need not worry :o)

We stayed in unit 712, a 3 bedroom 2 bath condo. The unit was very clean and comfortable. The 3 bedroom were as follows: Master with full bath and a pretty comfy king size bed, a screened in porch with 2 chairs and table along with a bathing suit drying rack. The other 2 bedrooms had 2 twin beds. All bedrooms had TVs and ceiling fans (essential in our humble opinion) and clock radios. Each bathroom was stocked with one roll of toilet paper and a small bar of soap (from Bath and Body Works)

The kitchen was very well stocked with essentials and above (we had a blender and grill utensils just to name a few). The unit had a dishwasher and there was detergent under the sink. A small dish soap, a roll of paper towels, a single pack of ground coffee and a single dishwasher detergent was provided. We had www.jerrysfoods.com stock our condo before we arrived- WHAT A LIFE SAVER that was! Check out their web site- it was the best $25.00 we spent the whole week. There were right on with our grocery list and they put everything in the refrigerator and in the cabinets. The last thing we wanted to do after traveling all day with 2 small boys (2.5 years and 7 months) was run out to the grocery store.

The living room was small but comfortable- it best feature was the large screened in deck that was just off it. We spent most of our week out there! It had a table with 6 chairs and 2 bathing suit drying racks along with a ceiling fan. The TV in the living room was a good size flat screen with a DVD/ VHS player. Off the living room was a dining room which we never used- we ate outside all week J

The beach was awesome- plenty of chairs to go around too. You can rent umbrellas at the office for a small charge- but our unit had 2. Shelling was great- lots of small shells on the shore and some larger ones out on the sand bar.

We have stayed here a few times, and think it is great. Whether you choose an ocean view or a courtyard view, the condos are clean and nicely done by the owners. Each has its own screen porch, and fully equipped kitchen. The grounds are lovely, and everything you need is provided, from a cooler for the beach, to a sun umbrella, and chaise. You can rent bicycles on site, as well as video movies. (You do need to bring your own beach towels). There are two pools, the larger of which had a heater problem this last trip, so the water was nippy, but the smaller pool was lovely. There are even kayaks for your free use on the canals.

The Sanibel Moorings Condo Resort was the perfect place for a little R&R plus we enjoyed walking the beach, using our rented bikes and kayaking the canals. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The condo was bigger than we expected and we loved the screened-in pouch. We had the "garden view" and was impressed with the nice array of plants. The pools were small, but that was ok because we prefer the beach. My husband and I were very pleased with the resort. We had a wonderful time, we highly recommend a stay at the resort.

Just spent 4 fantastic days at Sanibel Moorings in a 2 bed/2bath condo. We had # 542/ gulf view from the master bedroom. Nicely furnished and decorated. Everything was in working order. Bathroom in master bedroom was on the small side...I repeatedly hit my elbow on the toilet paper holder everytime I sat on the "john."That's my only complaint.Had outdoor balconies with furniture off the living room, and off the master bedroom, complete with towel rack to dry off beach towels and bathing suits.It's a family oriented place for the most part...although they do have adult only swimming hours set aside for guests. Free beach chaise chairs are available for use on the beach. Our unit actually had a beach umbrella for us to use in the closet. Linen is exchanged at the club house when you want to get fresh towels, etc., no housekeeping daily unless you request, and I assume pay extra for it. If you're cooking there, bring your own dishwashing detergent, and sponge. Bar soap is provided in the bathrooms. 1st roll of toilet paper is "on them", after that, you have to provide your own. Internet access was thru a dedicated phone line (dial-up) for our laptop. I hands up recommend this place. Minimum stay is 4 days. We paid $189/nite. Not too steep for being almost "beachfront."

We recently returned from our second visit to Sanibel Moorings, and will definitely go back in the future. The grounds are beautiful, the staff cheerful, very clean and well appointed condos, two great pools, heavenly beach. As close to perfect as you can get. This was the most relaxing vacation ever.
