About Sanibel Island

You’ll never forget your vacation at Sandalfoot on Sanibel Island! Our entire condominium community sits directly beachfront on the Gulf of Mexico. Our vacation rental condos combine all the conveniences of a resort location with the advantages of a private home.

If you have never been to Sanibel Island you are really missing out on an amazing experience! If you haven’t visited in a while here is a reminder of what is waiting for you on your next trip here! This is the first of a series of blogs on Sanibel Island so please stay tuned!

This secluded Fort Myers offshoot is considered even more low-key, quiet and quaint than its Gulf Coast neighbor, and that’s saying a lot. Casual is the order of the day on Sanibel Island; a shabby chic vibe permeates the Periwinkle Way galleries, restaurants and shops; seashells cover every sandy and linoleum surface. In fact, the abundant seashells have become this island’s (and its smaller sister, Captiva’s) claim to fame. You’ll find plenty of beachcombers practicing the “Sanibel stoop” — what locals call shelling — on any lengthy stretch of sand. Plan on joining them for at least one afternoon of your stay; that is, if the mood strikes you. The residents of laid-back Sanibel wouldn’t have it any other way.

Things to Keep in Mind:

  • Food is a fine art Seafood is all the rage, particularly grouper and stone crabs. For dessert, order something with chocolate pudding fruit, a locally grown fruit that’s filled with a sweet, chocolate-colored pulp.
  • There’s a knack to shelling For the best assortment of whelks, conchs and sand dollars, visit the beach an hour before low tide or right after a rain shower. Ask at your hotel’s front desk for a guide to finding the best “catch.”

How To Save Money in Sanibel Island

  • Don’t drive to the beach All of Sanibel’s beaches have metered parking. Book a hotel that’s close to your beach of preference, then walk or bike to the shore. (We recommend you stay with us at Sandalfoot Condominium and walk to the beach via our beautiful new walkway!)
  • Visit in fall Winter is the standout season on Sanibel, but the best shelling conditions are actually in the cheaper fall months. Pack a sweater and book for October or November.

Every vacation condo offers a view of the beach and is completely and comfortably furnished and equipped with everything you’ll need to feel right at home. Our units are all non-smoking. Relax and spend lazy days sunning and shelling on the beach or swimming in the large heated pool. Play tennis on our courts, bike the island trails, fish right from the beach, tee-off at a near-by golf course or go birding at J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge – the possibilities are endless. Your stay at Sandalfoot will be your most memorable Florida beachfront vacation ever! We consider Sandalfoot to be the best Sanibel Island rental value available.
