The laidback West Wind Inn is a family-friendly property nestled on 500 feet of white-sand beaches. Visitors can canoe, kayak and fish in the Gulf of Mexico or play golf at a nearby course.
Guest rooms have either direct or partial views of the gulf and private balconies or patios. Accommodations offer the option of one king bed or two double beds and come equipped with free Wi-Fi, refrigerators, microwaves, TVs and seating areas. The property does not have an elevator, so visitors who cannot climb stairs should request a ground floor unit. For kitchenettes en suite, guests can upgrade to studios.
The property features a pool with views of the ocean. The Upper Deck has plenty of alfresco seating and hosts happy hours every Friday. For meals, guests can dine on seafood and pub-style cuisine at the on-site Normandie Seaside Pub.
The beachfront inn isa five-minute drive to the J.N. "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge and 20 minutes to the Sanibel Lighthouse. Sanibel Island has 21 miles of bike paths, and the hotel offers rentals on site.
