2 BR Condo with adjacent parking--there are 2 full baths and washer/dryer and a kitchen just like home. Makes it so easy when you want to get away from it all. I love the screened porch, great for a relaxing evening without being eaten by all the critters.

I've stayed at Sanibel Arms West for several years now. This time I did not get a beach front condo but stayed in L-1. It is still very close to the beach but it certainly could use an update. The rooms and furnishing were outdated. The dishes were dirty as well as eating utensils. This condo is in front of the swimming pool and was very loud at night with unsupervised children screaming and running around. This is also the first time that I was bothered by upstairs and next door renters and noise. I did appreciate the mattress and box springs having a zippered cover but I did find an unidentified bug in my bed the first night. I did not get any information prior to arriving on how to obtain my room key if I arrived after the office closed. I had to call a 1-800 number to get the access code to retrieve my key. Since I arrived after midnight this was a little scary, lucky to find the 1-800 number. This will be my last stay at Sanibel Arms West because I don't feel that housekeeping is doing a very good job. Last time that I stayed I found a filthy bathroom on arrive and had to call housekeeping. One positive thing - I did have the opportunity to pay extra for late check-out which was great because our plane didn't leave until 7pm. Sanibel Arms is conveniently located and offers some lawn chairs for you to carry to the beach along with umbrellas to rent for $35 a week. It would be really nice if the beach was set up everyday with these items like the condo's next door.

Sanibel Arms West condos at So conveniently located on Sanibel Island. We rented a second floor, ocean front condo that was very nicely furnished & exceptionally clean. Staff was very gracious. My fave spot was the screened porch where we had our morning tea and dinner at night with the waves as our beach music! This condo complex had a nice mix of families with teens, families with young kids, honeymooners and retirees! Highly recommend Sanibel Arms West condos!

We love staying here, have stayed in different units and all have been clean, service great, nice safe community, feels like home! I have stayed in many places in Sanibel but we found this one a couple years ago and now we only stay here. No need to shop around, they have the best prices, great location and the office staff are always accommodating and helpful. I have even recommended this place to people I meet on the beach there. Stay here, you wont be sorry!

Our family really enjoyed staying here in unit H4. It was like home only at the beach. Beautifully decorated and every detail thought out to make your stay easy and relaxing. The complex is gorgeous and beautifully manicured.The owner and staff are friendly, helpful and so welcoming. We found our home away from home on Sanibel Island

Recently stayed in unit B8 with my family. Loved it! Very beautiful and clean. Everything was just perfect. Couldn't of chosen a better place to spend quality time with our teenagers. The pool was awesome but most important very clean. The location of the unit we stayed in was a partial ocean view which was very nice and only steps away from the beach. Very happy we chose to stay there and can't wait to go back!

What a beautiful place for ocean lovers. Sanibel arms west is an quaint little community on the beach, everyone is super friendly and helpful. We stayed in a beach-front 2 bedroom 2 bathroom condo, on the second floor, in unit D5. We had 2 spacious balconies including one that looks out directly onto the ocean, where we got to watch the sunset during dinner everyday. The unit is literally right on the beach. We had an amazingly time and can't wait to go back.

We rented unit K8 in April of 2018. It was kind of like staying at a relatives place. It was clean, but not perfect. Its close to the beach, quiet at night. It was worth the price, and I would recommend it to everyone. Best of all, it does have a washer and dryer. The condos website said it did not.

Sanibel Arms West is a small resort style condo complex. Well maintained grounds ,many units face the gulf. Many units surround the enclosed pool. We had a very minor maintenance issue with our unit on a Sunday morning and within a half hour a repair man was at the door. Our unit was beautifully decorated and had granite counters new appliances and two lanai. We enjoy an Amazing week at Sanibel Arms West unit B1.

We stayed here for 4 nights. It was a great experience. Our condo was beautifully decorated, clean, and had everything we needed. The kitchen had anything you would need to cook any type of meal. The beach access was right there, it was clean and peaceful. We also enjoyed the pool, and the grounds are very well maintained. We were also close to great restaurants. I would recommend Sanibel Arms West to anyone, great for all ages.
