Further details outdoors

There is a large outside heated pool, as well as 2 (hard) tennis courts. The grounds around the condos are beautifully landscaped, featuring many sub-tropical plants.

Location description from owner

The Southwest Gulf Coast region

Sanibel Island is located in the Gulf of Mexico on the south west coast of Florida. On the other end of the causeway connecting Sanibel to the mainland is the lively town of Fort Myers Beach. Sanibel has been described as a "sub-tropical island paradise" as well as a "seashell world capital". The residents of Sanibel have been successful in blocking highrise and high density development with the result that the whole island has a feel of a nature reserve (but with great restaurants and shops!). Almost half the island is occupied by the Ding Darling Wildlife reserve where white pelicans and roseate spoonbills are a common sight, as well as the usual abundance of herons, egrets and ibis's.

“Peaceful, relaxing, idyllic....Fabulous!”

Reviewed 5 Oct 2012

We visited Sanibel in August 2012 & stayed at the Lighthouse Condo's with our 3 children, aged 9,12 &16. The condo was very clean, welcoming and comfortable. Plenty of parking space, good air con & parking opposite for the tandem bikes we hired...everything was so easy! Everything was brilliant the place itself was light & airy, there was plenty of storage space, a well equipped kitchen, extremely comfortable beds & plenty of room for all of us! Also it smelt lovely & clean, with plenty of clean towels & bedding. The place itself was so peaceful & relaxing! you step out from the back porch door onto the patio, turn left & the you're greeted with such a lovely sight! swaying palm trees frame the 1 minute walk along the grass the beach. The beach was small, but perfect! So peaceful I felt like we were on a desert Island, so easy to just stroll back to get a cold drink or snack. The kids loved the easiness of everything, the fact they could just meet us at the beach, go back to the condo whenever they wanted or go to the pool. They really loved staying here too! We have had one of our best family holidays! We often walked along the beach towards the pier, where my 16 year old son would fish. Then carry on walking as the shelling is amazing! Also we would sit as a family in the late afternoon with our drinks & snacks, & watch the dolphins & pelicans, then the sunset...beautiful! Plenty of places to eat, we drove mostly, but could easily cycle to Pinnochios ice cream parlour, which has the most gorgeous ice cream. The whole island in August has a very slow, easy pace, which we all found beneficial....we were so chilled out! We travelled from the UK to visit, and would definitely do it again! Ron & Lesley were lovely, and gave us loads of info before we arrived. Sanibel itself is now forever one of my favourite places.
