Expert Review

In Old Town Sanibel near the lighthouse, this quaint inn offers efficiencies, deluxe studios, and one-bedroom suites in five attached bungalows. Rooms have names (and motifs) like Sea Shell, Tropical Bird, and Island Sunset; whitewash wicker and antique oak furnishings are complemented by cool tile floors and breezy colors. Originally converted from part of a castor bean farm, the inn underwent a six-month renovation in 1996, which transformed it into an intimate island-style inn, just footsteps away from both gulf and bay beaches. No phones or housekeeping service are provided, but there are complimentary bicycles and beach chairs, as well as free coffee in the mornings. Private patios amidst a lush garden of palms, hibiscus, and bougainvillea are a pleasant bonus.
