From Sanibel Island's venerable lighthouse and fishing pier on its eastern tip to the recently re-opened Blind Pass at the north end, where Sanibel connects to Captiva Island, no condo resort offers a more complete and rewarding Sanibel family vacation than Sanibel Arms West. When a seductive Sanibel-Captiva day or evening draws you from your comfortably furnished Sanibel Arms West suite, your family will enjoy island shops, art galleries, fine and casual dining and fishing from shore or boat. They even have boat docks. Sanibel is a destination guaranteed to please your entire family. Sanibel Arms West is the best base to enjoy it from. Dip in the Gulf at doorstep or swim in large, heated swimming pool - the only screened in resort pool on Sanibel Island. The beach is splendid for sunbathing. To sun more privately, sun deck with chaise lounges and tables awaits. If tennis is your sport, you'll find private tennis courts to your pleasure. Whether you bring your family for a few days, a week, a month, or longer, you can't beat Sanibel Arms West for location, value, and fantastic private shelling beach directly on the Gulf of Mexico. Sanibel Arms West offers spacious suites with two bedrooms, two baths, living & dining rooms, full kitchens and large, private balconies with screened-in porches.

Had everything we needed. Excellent for families. And so close to the beach! Would have liked to have been able to walk to restaurants, shops, etc.. But really not a major problem. Everyone hired bikes to get around anyway.
