Great Stay Kimball Lodge 264

5 of 5
My wife and I stayed in this unit the last week of August and it was great. The unit was well appointed and very clean, the zoned HVAC was very helpful in keeping the unit comfortable in the heat of summer, especially at night. The Island Inn property is in a very convenient location on Sanibel, Island Inn road can be used to shortcut over to Bailey's, Doc Ford's, etc. when on bikes. On our second to last day the dishwasher developed a small leak and the the property manager was at the unit nearly immediately after I contacted him, great service. We also liked using the keycode door locks rather than needing to pick up and drop off keys upon arrival and departure, nice touch.

Perfect First Visit

5 of 5
I can not say enough good about this unit. This was our first stay on Sanibel Island. It was absolutely perfect! the room is exactly as stated and what the pictures show. The view from the living room looking out onto the ocean and the angle for watching sunsets was breathtaking! It was clean and everything was in great working orders. The kitchen was perfect and well supplied to cook a meal when we did not want to eat out. The beach access was a close, easy walk. We loved having the coded entry instead of having to carry a key around. There were two of us that stayed and the size was perfect. It was very convenient having the half bath right by the front door so sand did not get into the rest of the unit. If (when) we visit Sanibel again, we will definitely stay in this unit.
