A great place to land on your next vacation!

The Parrot Nest is one of the Old-Sanibel inns located on the quiet East End of the island. Since 1955, our charming inn has been welcoming visitors and until the early 1960's they were brought to our shores from the mainland by ferryboat.

In homage to the property's heritage, our six rooms are tastefully decorated in the 1950's revival style.We are within walking distance to the historic Sanibel Lighthouse and fishing pier, beautiful shelling beaches, shopping and restaurants.

If you like, rent a bike and explore miles of paths covering the island and leading to wildlife refuges, kayaking spots, secluded beaches, and meandering past more eateries, shops, and galleries.

"My wife and I have been going to the Parrot Nest off and on since our honeymoon over the last 5 years. We enjoy it so much in so many ways. What we value the most is the how comfortable it is and how easy it is to live in. It is a small, select place to stay and there's always a decent crowd that is there.Within walking distance to the beach, and shopping makes it very convienent.

I would recommend the Parrot Nest to anybody looking for a place to stay that 'in a perfect way' is the ultimate non-commercialized peaceful getaway place on Sanibel Island. Cant wait to get down there again!"
