We had a wonderful time at Sanibel Moorings. Everything was as described, condo was well-equipped, clean and comfortable, and the management was helpful, friendly, and warm. The location on the island is great as well. Would highly recommend and hope to stay here again!

We stayed on Sanibel from December 12-19. We have been here a number of times before, but not at this time of year. It is quiet, beaches are not crowded and biking is fun! Room 132 offers lovely ocean views at Sanibel Moorings-our favorite place!

Another great girls holiday to Sanibel-Captiva Luminary weekend. Stayed at the Sanibel Moorings and took the kayaks out saw lots of wild life from birds to dragons! Did the Sanibel stoop up to the lighthouse and again lots of marine life and shells. The Sanibel Moorings gardens are fun to explore.

Stayed at Sanibel Moorings for 9 years and love it! The condos are very well equipped, the two pools and areas very clean as well as the laundry facilities. You walk right out to the beautiful beach and the 1.75 mile to the lighthouse is wonderful
