We just returned from a week at WEP and it was wonderful (11-20-09 to 11-28-09). Clean, well kept grounds, quiet and just a lovely piece of paradise. Darwin truly goes out of his way to make it a dream vacation and is so helpful and friendly. As another reviewer mentions the lack of ceiling fans made it hot for us...

Everything the reviews say is true. This really is a special place which is beautifully decorated and furnished with everything you could need. Won't repeat all the facilities as you can read the other reviews, but really loved the beach which was so quiet after an earlier stay up the eastern end of the island and we had beach chairs,...

All the reviews I read of this place were right on! We are very pleased we stayed at the West-End Paradise. We rented a two bedroom apartment for a long weekend. The grounds are very well maintained. The unit was very clean and had everything we needed. The place is in the middle of a residential area and is very...

West End was perfect for our needs. From the initial contact with Jen, till our departure, it was truly wonderful. Wildlife galore right at your doorstep...don't wanna pedal to Ding Darling?...no problem. Molly the Gator and friends will be more than happy to entertain you at West End. The room was clean and spacious, the kitchen was well enough appointed...

This was our 2nd visit to Sanibel and West-End Paradise, hence the title "Paradise Revisited." This year we had Unit #4 which featured a screened lanai and overlooking the pond / canal where we saw a lot of herons, turtles, snowy egrets, otters playing in the water, and a pair of screech owls, one standing watch in the tree, while...

This was our first stay at West End and we loved it so much we have booked a week for next year. We loved everything about the place. Jennifer and Darwin are terrific hosts who provide everything you could want. We had a one bedroom suite and it had TONS of room for the two of us. The room was...

Location and cleanliness...that's what it's all about, and Jen and Darwin have this down to a science. This is a small unit based place to stay..8 units..We stayed in the kitchenette, but also visited the one and two bedrooms. The kitchenette was great, just what we needed. The one and two bedrooms, with lanai(screened porch) were clean, spacious and good...

We had a great stay at the West-End Paradise. Jennifer and Darwin are wonderful to work with. The unit was spotless and well equipped. I loved the ability to park at the private beach access...not as crowded as public beach accesses and did not have to pay the $2/hour public beach accesses charged. I can't imagine staying anywhere else on...

West End Paradise is simply perfect. I am so glad I came to Trip Advisor to find a place to stay on Sanibel. Not only is this probably the most affordable lodging in overpriced Sanibel/Captiva, it could not have been any more charming and wonderful. Darwin and Jennifer, the owners, are a wealth of information and they make you feel...

What a gem! The rooms are impeccably clean and have everything you would need for a beach vacation. Bikes to ride to the beach, shelling equipment, beach toys & chairs, towels. The fully-equipped kitchen and outdoor grill were so handy and great. You could choose to eat indoors, out on the screened in porch or by the "lagoon" out back...

“Units 1 & 3 have smaller screened patios and larger living rooms. Resident alligators like the lawns near units 2 and 4.”

“For a couple, units 3 and 4 are just fine, and we like this side of the multi-unit facility because the sun doesn't come right in the bedroom in the morning to wake you up.”
