Perfect location to explore Sanibel, you can walk to places if you want. The staff was great helping me with a change of plans at the last minute! Easy to get in and out, no fuss. Will come again!
Barbara, us2 night family trip
Fair 4.0
Ordinary but expensive
Very overpriced for what it is! Wooden chalets and a pool. Office closed on arrival (even though during supposed open hours), didn't have any contact with staff throughout. Room smelt damp/musty. Sanibel is over-rated.
Colin, gb2 night trip
Very good 8.0
Good location on Sanibel Island. Room was clean. WiFi quit working in the evening and never was restored. Water had to run for 20 minutes before getting hot. A light over the first bed kept going on and off.
