We had a fabulous time at the Parrots Nest and look forward to returning. You can't beat the location with a nice restaurant and ice cream shop just up the street. The beach was an easy and quick bike ride away and wasn't crowded during Spring Break. The bikes were perfect for getting around and exploring. It was also very quiet.

No doubts, it was one of the cutest places I have been. Everything clean inside and out. Amazing views and comfort. We used the bikes to go around the island. Such a good idea to have them there. Thank you for the great experience and will be back for sure one day.

Quaint and kitschy, The Parrot's Nest has been my-go-to vacation spot twice in the last three years. It's within walking distance of both the bay and the Gulf. The Gulf side is a great beach for swimming, and sunning, with a variety of seashells for the collector. And the property makes the beach trip easy with wagons, beach chairs, and towels.The property is quiet, cozy, and well maintained. My unit was immaculate, roomy, and very comfortable. If I'm able to visit the East Coast again, The Parrot's Nest will be my first choice.

Perfect Getaway Location

Loved our room and the quiet end of Sanibel Island. The room and staff were wonderful! We felt like the entire area was just for us with plenty of room to sit out in the chairs and the hammock. Love all the running/walking paths around the island and the local stores right around the corner. Ice cream and coffee were great. I was even able to grab a quick sandwich which was delicious! The room was spacious and comfortable with everything we needed! The staff was even able to accommodate our tight arrival window and evening plans! Perfect!

Love It!

Loved staying here! I felt like I was on a tropical island! Just a short walk or bike ride to the beach or the light house. Watched dolphins playing near the pier. Felt very secluded even tho there were other units it is well designed to provide outdoor space for privacy. The free use of bikes was fantastic! I rode down to the end of the island every evening (lights on the bikes would be fabulous!) and had dinner. Definitely coming back!

My husband and I have nothing but good things to say about the Parrots Nest. We stayed here for my husbands birthday for a few days and it was very relaxing. Every day we would walk to the Lighthouse Cafe right next to the cottages for breakfast, then we would take the bicycles the Parrots Nest provided and go to the beach, which was about 2 min away. Our room had everything we needed and was a welcome comfort after a long day at the beach, and was the perfect size for the two of us. We will definitely be returning!

Visit during Sanibel Shell ShowWe had a very nice stay at this conveniently located property during the 2020 Shell Show. It is located near the lighthouse, walking trails and beach. The property has great amenities - including bicycles, laundry and beach carts. This is our second visit to this property, and we will definitely plan to stay again in the future.
