The kitchen is very well equipped and there are many extras (coolers, beach towels and beach chairs), plenty of cooking utensils, some herbs/spices, etc. The beds are really comfortable. There are 4 pillows per bed; 2 really comfortable and two foam pillows that could be replaced. We loved the lanai! To prove how much we enjoyed our stay in Kimabll 305, we have alread booked for 2018.

The unit is modern, well appointed and clean. The location at Island Inn is really perfect! I highly recommend this location for a small family, couple or single looking for a beautiful place to vacation on Sanibel.
