Your Home Away From Home


The tranquil solitude of Sanibel Island awaits you in your laid back beach vacation condo on the "Quiet Side of the Island". Colony Inn is just steps down a private path to the beach, where you can enjoy the warm calm waters of the Gulf of Mexico, and walk along the shoreline of arguably the best shelling in the world.

Drink you morning coffee while watching the dolphins swim by, or watch the Pelicans and Ospreys dive for their fresh catch of the day. Spend the day at the beach, making shell art or sand castles, admiring the historic Sanibel Lighthouse in the distance. Then take a refreshing dip in our heated and clean freshwater pool, that never feels crowded. Or rent a bicycle onsite and bike along more than 26 miles of scenic paths.

Hungry? Take advantage of our BBQ grills, use your fully equipped kitchen, or walk to one of the nearby restaurants. In the evening, relax in your screened in lanai, listening to the sounds of nature. There’s so much to see and do on Sanibel Island, and your vacation condo at Colony Inn is your home away from home.

Been going to The Colony for over 30 years. Each and every time I get there, I feel like I’m home! Have stayed in many many of the units and have never been disappointed. The Staff are like Family. It’s my favorite place to stay on the Island.

This is our 3rd trip to Sanibel and the Colony Inn. I dream about returning here every year with my family and especially this hotel. The condos are perfect for our family of 4 and I love how quant it. The walk to the beach is my favorite part of all and coming back to refresh in the pool is the best. See you next year!

Absolutely loved Colony Inn! Easy check in and check out. Our room had everything for our stay. Was exactly like the photos on the web site. Staff and housekeeping very friendly. Grounds were beautiful with an enjoyable 2 minute walk down a path and boardwalk to my favorite area of the island! Close to the Sanibel Lighthouse and our favorite restaurant, Lighthouse Cafe. Enjoyed several trips to Pinocchio's for ice cream too! Will definitely book a return stay, Thanks Colony Inn for a terrific celebration of our 32nd Wedding Anniversary.

We love this little place. We found it last year. This is the second time we have been here. It is out of the way. Quiet, the staff are so nice. You can have the big resorts. We won't stay anywhere else but Colony Inn when we stay on Sanibel. The units are cozy like you were at your own home. The place is always clean. Try this place you will not be disappointed.
