My excellent rating is not because this is a five star hotel. It is because this funky, little 1950's style motel is a refreshing option on an island of excess, with an inn keeper (Darwin) who is the most accommodating and friendly person on earth. We stayed a few days, enjoyed the private beach (yes, on Sanibel, private beach !!),...

Fantastic stay! Owner went above and beyond to accommodate me. Stayed in small room. Had to drive to beach access down the road. Quiet place with few rooms...Lovely green lawn, patio tables plural with chairs, BBQ grill, closet had everything necessary for trip to beach, even down to a beach towel! Such lovely flowers and plants on property---backed up by...

West End is tucked into a residential neighborhood on the west side of the island, so its really off the beaten path. The beach is about a 3 block walk away. Its not a luxury place, but a clean and very functional home-away-from-home. The owner provides you with everything you may need for your stay. I'd say more, but I...

Just amazing. Homey and comfortable. They think of everything from shelling supplies to baby yellow crowned night herons in a nest outside our rooms. Short walk to beautiful beach with very few other people. Just perfect.

Lovely cottage style place to stay *right* by Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge with the beach a short walk down the road. And bonus!- you will see lots of nature in your backyard while you're there, including a friendly small alligator and birds, birds, birds! The suites are all super clean, perfectly stocked and comfortable. The owner/operator Darwin was incredibly helpful...

We love this place, and shouldn't review it so we can be sure to find a spot here every March. Here's why we like it so much, and have stayed here each spring for a number of years. It is peaceful, located between Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge and Bowman's Beach, much closer to Captiva than the Sanibel Causeway. It...

Great value! Quiet location with nearby beach location. Very well maintained & decorated. Located by a canal where we watched the birds every morning from our lanai or chairs outside. We grilled a couple nights or had a kitchen to have some meals too. We would definitely stay again!

West-End Paradise is away for the big hotels and condos of Sanibel. It is almost part of the wildlife refuge in a quiet residential neighborhood. Darwin was very pleasant and helpful. The private beach access of the neighborhood is easy access and you have a parking permit during your stay. We loved the uncrowded beach and the great sunset opportunities....

Over the last 20 years, we have visited Sanibel Island about 8 times, staying in many different parts of the Island. We prefer the "Small Inns and Cottages" of the Island, and have come to favor West-End Paradise. On an acre of land, about a block from the beach, with parking right at the beach for people of the neighborhood...
