My wife and I have been vacationing in sanibel since 1979 on our honeymoon. We love the beach, nature, and shelling. Sanibel has it all. This year was great and our rented condo was perfect. We had one of the best years shelling in a long time. I believe this year went the fastest because we did so much and had so much fun.
We stayed at Breakers west B-2 April 23-27th 2017. We were very happy with our accommodations. Andrew and Susan were very helpful and informative from the very beginning. The condo was impeccably clean, beautifully decorated, well equipped kitchen, and the king size bed was very comfortable. If you plan on using the kitchen for meals, bring those little things from home that you count on, such as, salt/pepper, honey, tea bags, etc.. The condo is on the 2nd floor, however if needed there is a elevator. Beach was just a very short walk and was beautiful! We look forward to another visit!
When I book accommodations I look for clean, comfortable, quiet and location. This hit three out of four with ease.
The condo was very clean and well set up with a King bed in one room and two twins in the other. (The king was quite comfortable) There was a nicely stocked and relatively new kitchen. A good size dining table and living room finished the interior. The lanai had a table and four chairs as well as a recliner. My only gripe was that the living room wicker furniture was quite uncomfortable to sit in for long periods. I sat out on the lanai when I wanted to sit.
The location was excellent. About a 100 yards to the beach. The condo was centrally located on the island so it was also good for exploring Sanibel and the surrounding area. If you know your way around the Gulf side you can cut off the madness of the late PM traffic on Periwinkle.
My wife, two small children and I stayed for three nights and loved it. Apartment was well maintained and very cozy. Pool and easy beach access were great for small kids.
Location is great. Convenient to shopping, but away from the bustle. Walking/bike path right across street. For runners, nice 5.5 mile loop.
We were so impressed by the personal service we received from Susan. She was a sweetheart from the moment I inquired (about 9 months in advance) and could not have been more helpful or pleasant to work with through the entire experience. The condo has so many unexpected and thoughtful amenities - from the kitchen (even has pitchers and trays for entertaining and vases for flowers) to the beach equipment and toys to the board games and puzzles for rainy days. The beds are wonderfully comfortable (even the sofa bed) and there are lots of extra blankets and pillows too. The condo was spotless and charming, with lots of personality and is obviously loved by its owners. We loved the detailed "favorites" list and all the tips for making the most of a stay on the island. We are recommending B-2 to our friends and family and plan to return ourselves as well. I would not want to stay anywhere else.
