Wonderful!

5 of 5
We recently returned from our stay at the Kimble Lodge condo and wanted to say how wonderful it was. We have stayed in various vacation rentals and this condo checked all the boxes. From the view, decor, location, multiple fans and tvs and fully equipped kitchen, all was provided. Always love that Island Inn atmosphere, so relaxing and classy. The sound of the waves was amazing...we also "witnessed" a beach wedding during our stay from our perch, so sweet! Loved the keypad, so convenient as was the booking and payment process. Our questions were answered promptly as well. We hope to return soon to lovely Sanibel.

Great Family Vacation

5 of 5
My family and I (6 total) stayed Saturday to Saturday in this condo on Sanibel. We were very happy with the unit, accommodations, location and details. They really provide just about everything you need. There is a full kitchen with all the appliances. There is also a lot of cabinet/pantry storage in the kitchen. The unit is well equipped with beach towels, toys, nets, boogie boards (our addition), beach chairs and umbrellas. It saved us a lot of room packing knowing all that would be there. The unit has a great layout with plenty of space and nice views. The complex itself is great too. The clubhouse by the pool has kids activities and ice cream available. There are also two adult swim times during the day if you're looking for a more peaceful time at the pool. During that time we would take the kids to the beach or go out and do activities. The beach is just steps from the pool so it's very convenient as well. The location on the island is really good too. Nothing seemed very far. It's very close to Ding Darling Wildlife Preserve, Tarpon Bay and tons of restaurants. Our longest trip was probably to dinner on Captiva, which was about 20 minutes. I would highly recommend this unit and expect that we will return in the future.
