We stayed in April in two units ( beach front 211 and dock 1321) - very convenient location, all necessary amenities, spotless, pleasant design of the units. Friendly service. Great place for kids - bikes for rent, shelling at the beach. The only disadvantage was the fact that the fresh water lake was dumped into the sea and the water... More

This is the loveliest condo community on the island - lush and tropical, discreet buildings, quiet pools, steps to beach and very warm and friendly staff. You feel like you are in paradise - I've never seen do many unusual plants.

This is a well maintained condo unit. The whole place is older probably built in the 60's or 70's but very well maintained. We would stay here again but it is hard to get rooms during busy times. Writing this review makes me want to go back.

“The unit was very nice. Our only complaints are: only one sofa. When other family members visited the unit for dinner or hanging out there wasn't a lot of seating room. The second was the master bathroom was tiny. The bathroom off the hall is bigger. Two people can't be in there at the same time. Other than that the unit was very nice. On our next visit to Sanibel moorings we'll probably chose a diff unit though. The complex as a whole is great. We've been there four times now and plan to come back many more times as well. ”
