We have been coming to Pelican's Roost for 5 years, stayed in various units, and have never been disappointed! Units are well-maintained, just a few yards to the beach, great Gulf views, and wonderful staff make this a fantastic choice for a vacation rental. We love Sanibel and Pelican's Roost so much that we have decided to visit TWICE a year; just got home from our first week's visit and can't wait to return later this year!

Room Tip: Unit #305 is our favorite, but we have stayed on all 3 floors and there just isn't a bad view i...

We stayed in #204. It's a home away from home with everything you need and then more. Love having laundry right in the condo. It just comes in so handy. Loved the screened porch and the screened windows in the main bedroom. Perfect for listening to the ocean if it wasn't so hot outside. They supply tons of beach things you can't live without right by the walkway. Only complaints...the lady working the front desk was not personable at all. We tried to make conversation with her and nothing in response. Carl was very nice though and said Hi to us any time we passed. Check out is 10am. We took down a load of things to our van and walked back up to find 2 ladies waiting for us to leave at 9:15. Just staring at us like Are you leaving yet? I felt so rushed. I understand a new arrival was coming in but we shouldn't have been rushed out. If those two things would have been different would have definitely gave 5 stars.

A comfortable, bright corner condo apt with views of the Gulf and sounds of the waves as well as the view of very colourful sunsets and the Holiday Inn next door. The rooms and bathrooms are spacious and well kept, the kitchen very well equiped, the living and dining rooms encourages you to relax. The owner is very helpful, gave us good advice and provided us with a playpen and a highchair for our 10-months old grandaughter.
The first week was heaven: quiet, comfortable condo and glorious weather but 5 out of the 7 days of the last week, the Holiday Inn played loud music from 10 or 11 am until 6 or 7 pm, which did not meet our standards of a quiet relaxing atmosphere.
Nevertheless, we would go back to Pelicans Roost and rent a condo that is closer to the boardwalk rather than the Holiday Inn.

Ideal gulf front condominiums, friendly cooperative management and staff, and sparkling pool combine to make this a perfect spot to vacation. Location is perfect for shellers, diners, shoppers and those who love to relax.

We just returned from our first trip to Sanibel and our stay at Pelicans Roost #301 only made our trip more special. The owner, Mike, sent me many emails regarding things to do to entertain our 3 young children, along with many restaurant recommendations. The unit was updated and very clean. Pelicans Roost is very quiet and with only 21 units total, the pool was NEVER full-even during Spring break! While we swam, there were usually 2 people sunbathing and maybe 2 other people in the pool. It was amazing! Mike's storage room is filled with beach chairs and sand toys so we didn't have to bring anything with us from Ohio. The unit came equipped with laundry detergent, dish soap, sponge, a paper towel roll and toilet paper. We can't wait to get back to Sanibel and Pelicans Roost!

My family has come to Sanibel for years for the beautiful, open beaches. We were so pleasantly surprised to stay in unit 101 at Pelican's Roost. The room had a great view of the beach and we listened to the waves every night from the porch and master bedroom. We enjoyed the newly remodeled kitchen with granite counters. We look forward to coming back next year!

We're so glad that you enjoyed your stay in unit #101. They have done a lovely remodel and our guests have really appreciated the many upgrades. As you know, all of our units are located directly on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico which makes our small complex very unique on Sanibel.
We hope to see you soon!
