The Island Inn was founded in 1885 and has been a part of Sanibel history. From the history of the Island Inn:

"Island Inn was established in 1885. It began as the home of Will and Harriet Matthews and their four children who traded in the harsher climate of the north for the more temperate, year round weather of Sanibel Island. Constantly entertaining friends and relatives from the north who flocked to visit, the Matthews decided to turn their home into a boarding house. And from this grew the gracious tradition of the historic Island Inn that now hosts families and friends from around the world".

You will enjoy resort amenities including gulf front pool, tennis, kayaking, shuffleboard, volleyball and great shelling on the beach just steps away.

One of Sanibel's best restaurants offering dining and entertainment, Traditions is on the property, also just steps away!

We invite you to stay in our lovely home.

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

The kimball house was awesome! Breathtaking view from your own balcony. The condo was tastefully decorated and very comfortable. You are only steps away from the best beach in sanibel. We visited most of the public beaches and realized the shelling was better on the island inn beach than anywhere else! The condo had everything you would ever need. Beach chairs. Shelling nets. Cooler

Beach umbrella. Fully appointed kitchen. Laundry facilities on your floor.

Pretty nice!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at Kimball Lodge #305 condo at Island Inn. It is a very nice condo, very close to the beach, they have beach towels, beach toys, beach chairs/umbrellas and a cooler for use on the beach! Very helpful since I didn't have enough room in my luggage for a beach towel! The managers in charge are very quick to respond to questions. It is close to restaurants, maybe only a 15 minute drive. There is also a restaurant at the Island Inn, but we didn't go there as we had other places we wanted to try!

But…certain things need to be updated here: the toaster isn't even from this decade and it burns one side of your toast and leaves the other side raw/not toasted. :( We're lucky our bread didn't catch on fire, it burned it so bad! (I did contact them after our vacation to let them know it was faulty.) There's no pizza cutter or pizza pan/baking sheet really suitable for a pizza, it's not that big of a deal, but I thought people should know. There is also no dishwasher here either (just to let people know, as it's been said before), but there isn't really much room to put one in the kitchen either. My friend and I took turns washing dishes, so not a real big deal. They could use a few more plates only 4 large and 4 small (they had a bunch of glasses though!). They also had a nice selection of spices (salt, pepper, cumin, etc. I don't remember all of them). The plastic chairs on the lanai could be changed to something a bit more comfortable. I see now that the lanai can be in the direct path of rain but you can't relax in a chair that sits up right. Plastic Adirondack chairs would be nice here instead especially since I just wanted to relax on the lanai, listen to the ocean and read my book! The lanai could use a ceiling fan, as it does not really get much of the ocean breeze, since it is on the side of the building and can become extremely hot. We actually thought our lanai was hotter than it actually was outside! The sofa in the living room area could be changed to something other than white, as there were a lot of stains on the seat cushions and I felt like we sank to the floor sitting on it. The beds were pretty comfy but the pillows could be changed. I didn't feel like they supported my neck at all and I doubled them up.

There is a nice high efficiency washer and dryer in the hallway in the unmarked door directly across from the elevator and to the left of the stairs. The key for it is in your welcome binder. I wish they would have specified which door was for the laundry. I opened the janitor's closet with my key and felt awkward trying to open all the doors at the end of the hallway by the elevator.

Overall, I think I'd definitely stay here again! I'd give this condo a 4.5/5 but just some minor things that may be me just being a bit picky! Sorry! >__

Very Nice Vacation Spot

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time. The condo was clean and very convenient to the beach. The only draw backs were no dishwasher and it wasn't pet friendly. Who wants to wash dishes on vacation and we missed our fur baby by the end of the week.
