My wife and I booked at the Parrot Nest recently for a week stay. We got the "Dollhouse" . It is very small compared to the other units. We arrived around noon on the day of checkin. We thought we would have to waste some time until check in but our paperwork was waiting at the office. The key was...

We booked Parrot's Nest based on other reviews. We liked that it was on the east side of the island, enjoyed walking to the beach and using the beach chairs, wagon, and umpbrella that was located in the laundry facilities. Parrot's Nest was really quiet, private, and super nice staff. While we enjoyed saving money, it was quite as comfortable...

I seriously have never stayed anywhere this bad. I'm 5'4" and my knees almost hit the bathroom counter when I was on the toilet. When I turned the shower on, the flimsily shower curtain couldn't take it and flooded the bathroom. The only way this place got good reviews is if all the owners friends and family got on here....

We stayed here last week and loved it! It was very charming and exceptionally clean. The price was perfect. My only complaint is that we only could stay one night. We had a super late check in and management made it simple. I would highly recommend staying here.

We were pleasantly surprised by our stay at the Parrot Nest. This was our first trip to Sanibel and as with most bookings on line, you are never quite sure what to expect. The staff were exceptional, room was very clean and offered everything we needed for our two night stay. It is nestled in a very quiet location only...

Our family of 5 stayed at Parrot's Nest in August. This was by far our favorite stop in our Trip across Belize. The place is in a beautiful setting, surrounded by lush jungle and steps away from the river. Our kids had a blast running around, playing wth the dogs, tubing in the river, and just exploring the bugs, birds...

Room was very very clean! Would stay there again! And will tell family and friends to that is the best place to stay on the island. :) Everything about it was perfect! Thank you Parrots Nest for a excellent visit to Sanibel Fla.

The Parrot Nest will not be to everyone's taste. There is no daily servicing of the rooms and no reception as such, it's at a sister hotel. That said ... what a little gem. It is a breath of fresh air away from the usual chain hotel market. Like the rest of Sanibel it is small and independent with a...

Very nice and clean rooms in a real tropical setting. Rooms had everything we could ask for really. Good value for money on Sanibel. The only two things we were missing were a pool and some staff on site. The owners obviously operate another accommodation as well, a mile or two down the main street. You can use that pool,...
