Extremely rude staff!! Sanibel is a family friendly island. It is normal for children to play on the beach. We have stayed various places on the island for over 20 years and have never encountered ruder staff. We were staying next door and were very rudely told we needed to move our chairs to the right 5 feet because that...

Pros: The location is perfect. Easy to get on/off the causeway even at the high traffic times. The property is very clean, nicely landscaped. The units are roomy - this one bedroom was surprisingly large. The bath linens and beach towels are new and nice quality. It is mostly quiet and comfortable. I had very quiet neighbors and one noisier...

We rented a 2b/2bath for a week for 4 adults and 2 little children, which was more than adequate for size. It was located on the ground level and on the beach so it was an ideal location. The finishing we a little dated and some rooms were in needed of a fresh coat of paint, but you really didn't...

C-2 was poorly maintained, poor communication with owner and resort. Grounds were dark and not kept very clean. Door and window locks were very flimsy. There didn't seem to be any security on the premises, so at least more lighting would help after dark.

Thank you for your feedback. Did you stay at Sanibel Arms or Sanibel Arms West? We have had a long-term guest in our unit C2 since January. We do our very best here at Sanibel Arms to keep our grounds and units well-maintained and looking beautiful.

We stayed at this property for the first time about a month ago. We stayed at the dockside unit, across the street, in a very well-furnished condo. We understand that Sanibel Arms is an older property on the island, but it is very clean and well-maintained, featuring a new swimming pool and ocean-front units on a very nice beach. They...

I liked our condo enough. It was a little older and run down but it was fine for sleeping. We rented a one bedroom condo ocean front. We were surprised that the one bedrooms didn't have front porches, therefore lack of light and not any place to sit and enjoy the ocean front views. The women we dealt with at...

This is our second year to visit Sanibel island and our second stay at Sanibel Arms condos. We love it here. The pool is clean and the grounds are well kept. They place chairs and umbrellas on the beach each day with a private board walk to the beach. It's right near town and easy to get the restaurants of...

This is our second year renting from Kathi and Ed, what more can I say "It was awesome!" The pride they take in their condos is unbelievable, they did some updates and paint and still maintained the designer decor, which is gorgeous! They make you feel relaxed, at home and your stress is left at the door, in my opinion...
