Reviewed 10 November 2013 via mobile

Love it! Tranquil spacious soothing to the soul. Rent bikes to fully experience the island. Bring bug spray the noseaums are ridiculous! Hgvc please get zappers or offer bug spray because it is UNBEARABLE...I will return but armed. :) saw plenty of dolphins swimming while sitting on the beach perfect to show my children nature at its best.

Stayed November 2013

Came for a celebration and was not disappointed. Layout worked well for my husband and myself as well as two adult daughters (2 bedrooms). Kitchen was well stocked with dishes, pots and utensils. It would be helpful if salt, pepper, some sugar, etc. were stocked as these items needed to be purchased and we left them behind. Office staff was helpful with recommendations and accommodating us as we arrived quite late the first night. It was quiet and peaceful and close to the beach. No bugs, no dirt...no complaints.

We spent a fabulous week at Hurricane House Resort. The facilities are kept in excellent condition with the condos very clean as well as the pool and grounds. The upper units have a great view of the beach and ocean. It is a very peacefull resort. Don't know if that is still true at the high season. It wasn't crowded by the pool or the beach. The beach is quiet and clean with lots of shells for avid shellers. The kitchens are fully equipped. We had breakfast and lunch on the screened patio enjoying the ocean view. There is no restaurant on the premises so it is easier to eat those two meals in. The location of this resort is excellent close by to shopping and many excellent restaurants. Sanibel is a beautiful nature filled island. We take advantage of visiting it whenever it pops up with our timeshare exchange. Visit this lovely resort and you won't be sorry!

We've been going to Hurricane House every year for the past 15 years. Sanibel Island and Hurricane House are a little piece of Paradise!
If you're looking for a big, glitzy resort, with lots of activities, music by the pool, special programs for kids, evening entertainment - this resort is NOT for you.
However, if you're looking for a peaceful atmosphere, total relaxation, and a beach to yourself - well - you've come to the right place.
This place is small - only 15 units - all of which are 2 levels - with updated furnishings, appliances etc. The pool area is immaculate, with 2 hot tubs which are wonderful in the evening. There are gas grills for your use - a good place to get to know your neighbors, and hammocks. There is also a tennis court, and complimentary rackets and balls. And every room has a full-on view of the Gulf
Sanibel Island and Hurrican House is one of those magical places that you want to keep to yourself after you discover it!

Room Tip: Ask for an upper story room for great Gulf views!

My family has stayed in this condo property every year for a long time. The resort is awesome, they keep it updated, and the property is beautiful. We always have unit #4 on the top floor, the view off the veranda from the master bedroom is amazing. Some of the best sunsets you will ever see! Sanibel is an awesome place to visit, and The Hurricane House is the only place I'd stay!

We spent spring break (Easter week) with our 3 children, ages 8, 10 and 13. Very nice accommodations, and beautiful beach. Our 13 year old was a little bored, and craved a larger hotel. The rest of us loved the smaller resort. Played tennis, went on nature/boat tour, biked, and swam a lot. Rooms are in excellent shape. Furniture/carpet looked new.

Great view from 2 balconies/levels. In April, we had AWESOME sunsets every night from the beach.

Also loved the bike trails on the island. We rented bikes for the whole family for reasonable price and biked almost every day. Highly recommended.

Only complaint: the beaches had TOO many shells (kids thought it was a bit rough on their feet). But this is probably a good thing for many. Shelling is quite addicting.

Sanibel Island is very unique and special. Loved it.
