    Jill L from Bellevue, WA recommends this vacation rental

    It is important to define what you wish to experience in Sanibel. For my sister and I, we traveled across the country for the sand and the shells. Prior to researching the Waterside Inn, I had made an initial reservation on the east side of the island but when reading TA reviews, realized we would be happiest on the less touristy west side of Sanibel. I was first impressed when contacting the Waterside Inn by phone, they actually spent time with me offering information and answering questions where other hotels had answering machines. When arriving at the Waterside, the hours I spent researching were validated in its perfect location, perfect beach, perfect room, perfectly quiet and tranquil surroundings. The Waterside Inn is a beautifully well maintained older property, updated with Wi-Fi and cable as well as kept shining with daily service. We began calling it "home" on the first day, always relieved to return to our spot in the sun after daily adventures or shopping. We enjoyed the freedom having a complete kitchen and grilled Mahi and prawns on one of the grills made available to guests. Many of the same guests were seen, favorite beverage in hand, celebrating the Sanibel sunsets each evening which became such a nice ritual of toasting life in paradise. The staff itself were true to their goal and always "exceeded" my expectations. The wild life was a marvel for us. For historians, we also found meaningful the appreciation of the history of the property itself and island as a whole. For readers, there are some wonderful writers who are local, notably Ron Base and the Sanibel Sunset Detective which added to the overall fun of the island paradise. On our next trip, we will most certainly stay at the Waterside Inn, in the same room with my favorite lime green chair and shell washing station just outside our door. The Waterside Inn personifies the magic and history of this beautiful island and we thank them for such a lovely and very memorable experience.

    I loved the Waterside Inn in Sanibel. My son and his fiancee were married right on the beach at sunset. Our family loved the different cabins and the vivid colors, plus the stove, refrigerator and utensils were a gret plus. We were camping out in Paradise. My grandsons loved the ocean breezes and the sea shells were marvels of nature. We would return some day soon, perhaps for the newly wed's anniversary! Also, I would not want to neglect the courteous and friendly staff who helped in every way possible. Loved the experience!!!!

    Edward S from Marysville, Oh recommends this vacation rental

    We stayed at the Waterside Inn for 4 days this November and were absolutely thrilled with the experience. The staff was very friendly and the property quaint and cute and well upkept. We stayed in Pineapple 121 and had a direct view from our balcony and front windows of the beautiful Gulf and beach area. You literally left the room and were on the beach in seconds. The room was kept nicely. The bathroom was a bit on the small side but other than that we had no complaints. The property was very clean as was the beach area. The beach was lovely and very tranquil. We spent many hours soaking in the sun! We would definitely go back to this property!! It was a little slice of paradise before returning to 20 degree temperatures in Ohio!

    We needed a place just to sit on the beach and relax. Pineapple 121 was perfect. Just a few steps to the beach. Great View. The room was very clean. Having a spinal condition, sleeping in motel beds is usually an issue. Not the case here... the bed was actually comfortable. The staff were all friendly and helpful. It was nice having a kitchen, too. Our only regret was not being able to stay longer. We definitely hope to go back.

    a guest from Chapel Hill, NC recommends this vacation rental

    We stayed at Waterside because the usual place we stay was full. It was a great choice, and in fact, we will probably prefer this to our other place. The room was large and right on the beach with a beautiful view. We could see both the sunrise and sunset from our windows. Not all the rooms have this great a view, but we were willing to pay a bit extra, and are not sorry. The beach was about 20 steps from the door. The people working there were the best -- helpful and very friendly. The location is an easy bike ride from shops and restaurants and lots of activity, but it's very quiet and private at the inn. Wish we could have stayed longer than our 4 days! Next time.

    Bob B from Bethel, VT recommends this vacation rental

    We haven't visited Florida a lot, but think this was one of our best vacations. The property is older than many of them, but very comfortable, clean, friendly, private and up-to-date as far as amenities. The staff were one of the best things about our stay. The various people at the front desk were friendly and helpful, the women who cleaned the room were kind and thorough, and the caretaker (John or Jim?) is the best. He knew about every restaurant, food type and sight-seeing destination and had been at the hotel for years. He was so friendly and seemed to love working there. We would recommend this hotel to everyone, singles or families. It's right on the beach, easy to find, convenient to restaurants and groceries, and small enough to feel private, compared to some of the larger, more impersonal hotels on the beach. It was a great stop.

    My wife and I picked Waterside Inn at the last minute, as the beach on Captiva was being restored. We were so pleased with our selection done online. Many of the places nearby appeared to be large buildings without the charm of the Waterside Inn. We were fortunate to get the ocean view room on the first floor of the Pineapple Lodge. It was quiet and romantic and lots of fun with the Gulf just a few steps away. We would strongly consider staying there again if we return to Sanibel.

    We loved our stay at Waterside Inn. It took awhile to decide on where to stay for a few days in Sanibel. My husband is weak from chemo and not able to walk very far. I emailed with questions about the best rooms for the shortest walk to the beach. I received a quick response and it was very helpful. We loved everything from the closeness to the beach to the large gulf front view in a large window. There was a nice little patio to sit out on if you wanted. Parking for this room was very close and convenient. We could not have been happier with our stay. We will be returning as soon as possible. Thank you Waterside Inn!!

    Our window looked out over the Gulf where we watched the storm whip up a few whitecaps. The king unit had a small kitchen, front deck, that great window & nice decor. We only stayed a few days but it was perfect. Would definitely stay here again, with family & friends in a bigger unit or just us again in a small unit. The colorful units were just what we wanted--sweet & small with great character. LOVED that our unit was only steps from a lovely beach, plenty of shells, but close enough to any other action we could want.
