Positive Reviews

Ideal location on quieter side of island.

The inn is located at the quieter east end of Sanibel Island, a location that guests have been quick to praise. In addition to being away from the main hustle and bustle, the inn is a five-minute walk from the beach and just ten minutes from the lighthouse. Meanwhile, the Lighthouse Café and Pinocchio's ice cream parlour - popular with tourists and locals alike - are situated just across the street.

Complimentary extras enhance stay.

Guests staying at the inn can take advantage of a number of complimentary extras, including beach towels, chairs, and umbrellas. Perhaps the most popular freebie though comes in the form of free bike hire. Guests love to get away from the slow-moving traffic and cycle across the island.

Friendly, comfortable atmosphere.

Reports indicate that the inn offers clean and comfortable accommodations, even if they're not the most modern. Additionally, guests have praised the innkeeper for providing a friendly and helpful service.
