We looked long and hard for a nice place to stay on the island for our 5-year wedding anniversary. At the last minute, we found Sanibel Moorings from reviews on Tripadvisor. So, on chance, we called and booked the weekend. Since we were taking the kids with us (3 yr old and 1 1/2), we wanted to find somewhere where we would be comfortable and have total access to the beach, and attractions and keep the young ones entertained. WOW! Were we surprised! The staff, the accommodations, the location, the beach, the atmosphere … just everything at Sanibel Moorings was (as the title says) nothing short of amazing!

The grounds are dressed in the most beautiful flower and garden arrangements that you can imagine. Being right on a private beach, the shelling was wonderful! The kids brought home some wonderful finds! Not gonna mention which unit we stayed in (yea, keeping that a secret) but it was so clean, well appointed, and was just perfect. It was like a home away from home.

At the moment, the ocean water isn’t the best as they are releasing the overflow from Lake Okeechobee. But, don’t let that deter you! Crystal clear water or not, this resort certainly made up for that! Since the water right now isn’t as clear as normal, it was a little hard to find shells and sand dollars. But, go out at low tide and you will fill buckets of beautiful sea shells right on the beach. The water should clear up in the next month or two but it doesn’t matter …. everything else just makes this place perfect!
