My daughter and I are just returning after a week's stay. We loved Sanibel as well as Sanibel Moorings. I was a little apprehensive in making our reservations as we've paid upwards of 3xs more for a two bdrm/2bath vacation condo. Sanibel Moorings exceeded our expectations. Exceptionally clean unit. Very comfortable. Well maintained property...it's obvious they take great pride in...

We have really enjoyed our stay here. We stayed in a courtyard view 2 bedroom. The unit was exceptionally clean and had everything we needed. We made use of the full kitchen. The kitchen was galley style so a bit narrow, but everything worked well. Pillow top beds were very comfortable. The unit was steps from the beach. We rented...

This is a well maintained condo unit. The whole place is older probably built in the 60's or 70's but very well maintained. We would stay here again but it is hard to get rooms during busy times. Writing this review makes me want to go back.

Also, a limited number of bikes are available for rent. Even the units furthest from the beach are and easy 2-3 minute walk. The pool on the property is fairly large, heated and...

“Exhaust fans in both bathrooms should be checked - very noisy. Toilet in master bath should be checked - the actuating lever sometimes sticks and the water keeps running.”
