This is a perfect location for you if you like peace and quiet. Located in a small subdivision, you can use the neighborhood private beach access. You even get a parking permit, which is necessary on this island. The beach access is down the street, about 1/4 mile. The complex is only 2 miles west of the Ding Darling National...

Overall our stay was a good one. The house was clean and located near the beach (3 minute drive) it was too hot to walk in August. The only negative was the bed was very, very firm. So firm that we opted to use the air mattress in the closet. It was more comfortable than the bed. Darwin was helpful...

A year later, and our initial delight with West-End Paradise was confirmed. Unit 3 this time instead of Unit 4, but the same impeccable cleanliness, fine service from manager Darwin Ford (who cares about the facility and likes his guests), quiet, privacy, amenities (beach chairs, beach towels, maintained bicycles, beach permit for nearby nearly private stretch of Bowman's Beach area,...

We stayed here for 5 nights in January. The accomodation was of a very good standard. Darwin was most helpful throughout our stay. Our unit (Efiiciency) was clean and tidy and as a nice touch, buckets and shell nets were provided. The grounds are kept in impeccable condition. From West End Paradise, there is easy access to the beach (5...

We booked a late Christmas week to be with one daughter and her husband. It is tough this time of year to find a place and we booked in early October. We had the largest unit with 2 bedrooms, kitchen, large living room and screened porch. The unit was clean and nice and although not on the beach but close...

This was a wonderful find located in a special spot on the planet. Sanibel Island is a paradise in Florida with a unique orientation to the Gulf of Mexico. The east west positioning of the island gives the beaches some of the best shelling. On every one of our daily trips to the private beach access, the shells were covering...

Cute little place in great location. Quiet end of the island. Set in a very small residential subdivision of older and refreshingly modest homes. Short walk to a great stretch of beach. Beautifully landscaped and meticulously maintained by Darwin, the owner. No need to venture to the nature preserve, alligator in the pond on the property. Although, if you are...

Hi Folks. West End Paradise continues to be one of my top ten places to stay. We stayed over the Christmas - New Year break 2014-2015 again. Darwin Ford continues his hands on management of his property and does an excellent job. The suites continue to be immaculate. I wish Darwin continued success in the new year. Keep doing what...

“Units 1 & 3 have smaller screened patios and larger living rooms. Resident alligators like the lawns near units 2 and 4.”

“For a couple, units 3 and 4 are just fine, and we like this side of the multi-unit facility because the sun doesn't come right in the bedroom in the morning to wake you up.”

“If you're going to do a lot of cooking, rather than then you might want a larger unit than the Efficiency - suggest you ask Darwin to advise on what best might suit you.”
