I found this property at the last minute (3 days to Christmas). I have a beagle and needed a place that allowed pets. I wanted somewhere quiet and serene. I also wanted a small town feel. I found all of these at the waterside inn on sanibel beach.
The kitchens come equipped with all the dishes and utensils you could need. The units are clean and up to date in furniture design. The bathrooms are older, but adequate. You can even take your dog onto the beach (they own part of it on their property) which is cool & sit int he lounge chairs and relax with your pup. I even took my beagle ont he public portion of the beach (although you are not supposed to) and all was ok.
The office staff and owners are GREAT. They made me feel very welcome and even when my beagle bayed for a few hours ebing left alone.
You can even rent your bicycle right ont eh property so you can ride into Sanibel's shopping district or onto Captiva Island to shop, eat, etc.
The only thing I think they could improve on is to offer high speed internet, either plug in or wireless since there is no 'real' cyber cafe on the island.
I can do nothing other than to recommend this property.
