Nearly perfect for our needs. We checked other properties while we were there, no other property enticed us away from Sanibel Moorings. We will be going back. Location is perfect. Easy to access everything with bikes on bike paths. We liked that.

We have visited Sanibel Moorings for many Spring Breaks. We can always count on a great stay. It is situated on a beautiful beach. Great for shelling, walking, running, reading, lounging, swimming, fishing or just staring aimlessly into the Gulf of Mexico. The lovely gardens surrounding the units are blooming and gorgeous. You'll find orchids blooming in trees. There are...

Dear creature62; Wow, I have taken so much for granted when it comes to all of the things that you can do at Sanibel Moorings Resort.
