Best seashelling in the western hemisphere. After a two day storm there was 100 large live conchs washed up, starfish, baby octopus, countless shells with live crabs and around 100 crab traps with crabs in them. That's the beach. Behind our unit was a canal. Saw turtle that was two feet wide, dolphin, many fish. If you want to catch...

Many vacations on sanibel, third visit at Sanibel Arms and first in unit C1. The condo was lovely. Could use Newry beach lounge chairs. Nancy and other staff are professional and helpful. My only concern is the limited number of beach chairs and umbrellas. If not on the beach at 8:30 am to wait, you're out of luck. The condo...

The decor of our condo was refreshing and fun. Our location to the beach was perfect for our group. The whole complex is well maintained and the staff if needed is readily available. Other renters were friendly and welcoming.

This is our third stay at Sanibel Arms. All three stays have been perfect! Right on beautiful beach, great pool, very clean, comfortable and well equipped. Great for spotting dolphins. Easy access to entire island.

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...
