This was our first trip to Sanibel but it won't be our last. That's in large part because of the excellent accomodations at West-End Paradise. Jen and Darwin, the hosts, went out of their way to make our stay as comfortable as possible including lending us some bug repellent to keep the no-see-ums at bay and loaning us some tools...

We just returned from a wonderful stay at the West End Paradise. We were so pleased with our accommodations; we stayed in a one bedroom apartment. The grounds were very lovely and so relaxing. The owners, Darwin and Jennifer, could not have been more accommodating. They did everything they could to make us feel like we were at home. Everything...

Situated in a quiet residential neighborhood, with spacious, clean comfortable rooms, tastefully decorated in nautical themes with shells everywhere, comfortable beds and modern appliances, the West-End Paradise feels more like a second vacation home than a resort destination. Screened in porches, local wildlife (birds, turtles, frogs, snakes & alligators), kind hosts, a shell washing facility, decks overlooking the on-site ponds...

My husband and I just returned from staying 3 nights at the inn. It is wonderful. I agree with all the reviews. It couldn't have been more perfect! Everything...

If you want to enjoy all the natural pleasures of Sanibel without the crowds, this is the place! Clean, cute and comfy accommodations. The owners provide bikes, lawn chairs, and all the tools needed for collecting shells. Away from the traffic and crowds, nestled on a relaxing street very close to the Ding Darling Wildlife refuge. This is the ONLY...

The West-End Paradise lives up to it's name. A short walk to a beautiful private beach,dolphins, ospreys and pelicans all catching more than me with my fishing pole. The owners are very friendly and helpfull with anything needed. For relaxing this is the place.

Nestled in the arms of a tree-fringed lagoon on residential street, West-End Paradise is a little haven of two one-story buildings about 1000 feet from a quiet beach where one can walk for hours. We stayed in the studio, which features two small but very nice rooms -- the bedroom with a kingsize bed, french doors leading to the garden,...

This is the third year in a row my wife and I have come back to West End Paradise for a two week vacation and we plan to come back again next year. Jennifer and Darwin are the owners and are not absentee landlords; you will likely see them every day working, cleaning, and just making sure that all your...

“Units 1 & 3 have smaller screened patios and larger living rooms. Resident alligators like the lawns near units 2 and 4.”

“For a couple, units 3 and 4 are just fine, and we like this side of the multi-unit facility because the sun doesn't come right in the bedroom in the morning to wake you up.”
