My two girlfriends and I were looking for a sunny getaway and we found it at Pelicans Roost! We booked our condo through the owner (#304). Although the decor was a bit dated, the condo was stocked with everything we needed. We stopped on the way down to pickup breakfast and lunch items. The beach is gorgeous and the condo...

Booking went smoothly through the owner. Chartered an all-day ocean fishing trip, we caught ocean trout, red snapper and black drum. Took all the fish to the Lazy Flamingo and they prepared all the fish for us. Booked the "Thriller" ride, would not do it again. If you have ever been on a speed boat, then you have seen pretty...

The Pelicans Roost is a small quiet condo complex which has everything you need for a peaceful beach vacation, beach on one side, pool on the other, beautiful views of the ocean from your screened in porch - what more could you ask for? We have been coming back for a number of years and are never disappointed. Leslie manages...

Looking for a moderately sized condominium complex on the shore with a pool, barbecue amenities and nice interior accommodations? This is it ! The individual rental units are available by the week. This location is off the beaten path yet nearby by a bicycle ride to restaurants and shops. No traffic at this location and the beach is as big...

Sigh!! No one in my family wanted to leave this peaceful getaway. Unit 206 was PERFECT for us! The layout is great, with the master bedroom separated from the guest bedroom by the second full bathroom and a huge walk-in closet in the master to allow for privacy. An open floor plan allows you to see from the kitchen stove...

OK so it's not the most up to date condo but who cares when there is direct access to a beautiful beach. There are plenty of shells on the beach just outside and it's a short drive from anywhere. Very spacious for a large family of five.

We have visited Sanibel Island for the past nine years and had rented the same place for 8 of those years however our regular place wasn't available this year which turned out for the best. We looked at so many places but none of them looked as amazing as Pelicans Roost so we decided on Pelicans Roost and so glad...

My friend, Kate, and I go on an annual adventure. I had read about Sanibel Island a few years ago and wanted to go. We started looking for places to stay and the owner of #301 stood out not only because of the beautiful photos of the condo, but for all of the helpful tips he provided for places to...

We have stayed at several condo complexes on Sanibel, and Pelican's Roost ranks alongside our other top choice. The complex is small enough to feel uncrowded but has all of the amenities that you might need. There is plenty of parking, and the grounds are lovely. All of the rooms are directly oceanfront, and you could not ask for a...

This is my second time being here. Such a wonderful complex. Condo, 201, is fully stocked, comfy beds. The view from the porch is wonderful. all porches/ decks are screened in. We watched rabbits played, saw many lizards and last time caught a glimpse of an iquana by the pool!! The vegetation is just beautiful. Palm trees, regional trees and...
