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...

A small place located in a residential neighborhood toward the Captiva end of Sanibel. The neighborhood association has their own private beach to which W-End guests have access (5 minute walk, 2 minute bike ride--also parking). Easy bike ride (1 mile) to a large public beach with big playground for kids, showers, changing rooms, etc. The big attraction is shelling...

From the time we called to make the reservation, this place was right. Jen was friendly and helpful even when we arrived late and couldn't figure out how to get in our room. The use of the bikes and canoe made our little stay in Sanibel just about perfect. Our room (the smallest) had all we needed: books, fridge, and...

The West End Paradise is a dream come true. Hosts Jennifer and Darwin were wonderfully kind, warm and helpful. Went out of their way to get a child size bike for our daughter to ride on the island and had a Christmas Tree with decorations set up for us when we arrived. The location is calm and soothing and the...

We have made a trip through florida in the summer, but this was really fantastic. A beautiful home with a lot of space, free bikes, very nice owners, a beautiful garden an d a really great beach (almost private). Sanibel is a fantastic island (more relaxing than the rest of florida, not all MacDonalds etc.). We hope to come back...

We stayed at West End Paradise the first three weeks of February, 2007 and loved it. Jennifer and Darwin, the owners are lovely: fun, easy to be with, very very helpful, but not obstrusive. The resort was immaculate and well maintained. There was no sense of being 'nickel and dimed': all the basics were provided. Most of all, Jennifer and...

My Mom and I stayed for a four day week-end, November 8-11th. It was beautiful! Clean, quiet, lots of birds, wildlife, and great bikes. The beach is clean and deserted, you felt like you had your own private beach. Jennifer and Darwin went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed, our room was clean and spacious....
