“Wonderful Gulf Front Condo”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2007

Stayed at Sanibel Arms Condo - F2 this past October. It is a wonderful gulf front 1 bedroom condo located about 1 mile from the lighthouse. The condo is very comfortable, clean and fully furnished. Beachchairs and umbrella were also included
The owners were friendly and very easy to do business with.
We will be back!

I stayed at the Sanibel Arms complex (down the road from Sanibel Arms West) this past May. It's owned by Royal Shell. We stayed in the F4 complex.
The condo was very nice. It is two nice sized bedrooms, one has two twin beds, the other a regular bed. Two bathrooms, one off the bedroom and another in the hall. The kitchen and living room are both nice sized. There are two pull out couches in the living room. It says the condo sleeps 6, but you could easily fit 8 by using both couches.
The condo had a lot of nice amenities. All the dishes you could want, books and magazines, a huge tv with lots of channels, etc. The place was redone afew years ago after a hurricane, so everything is clean and new. There is a screened in porch that faces the ocean--this is an ocean view, and the ocean is about 30 steps down the little boardwalk path.
The beaches live up to their shelling reputation--they are coverd with shells. Of course, not the huge conch shells you see sometimes, but decent shells that you'd want to take home.
The island itself is a little boring--basically there are just restaurants and a few shops. No real down town area, and everything closes by 8 pm. More for the older crowd or people with young children who like the beach.
There are some really nice beaches on captiva island, which is maybe 10 minutes up the road. The sand was softer there and the water was a little clearer, although the beaches on sanibel were just fine. The dolphins came to play in front of our condo every morning, and people lined up on the beach to watch. Overall, the place was not very crowded in May.
There is a pool and also an office with two computers with Internet access located right by the condo. However, the computers were old and worthless. We were able to get on a wireless connection in the condo which wasn't that strong..i'm not sure whose it was. You can also get onlne at the royal shell office we were told.
Overall, the condo is nice, but the island is a little more slower paced than I was expecting.

My family and I stayed at Sanibel Arms, which is separate from Sanibel Arms West. We stayed in a 2bd condo right on the gulf. You couldn't ask for a nicer place. Everything was clean and neat. My father is handicapped so being right on the boardwalk helped a lot too. Had a wonderful time walking the beach (clean!!) and watching the baby podders (little birds) running about. The shelling there is wonderful. I would return in a heartbeat. Best place to eat was the Island Cow. Great food.
Great Place to visit with the family.!!!!!
