Casa Ybel

Overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, Sanibel Island’s Casa Ybel is nothing short of a paradise resort. Think picture postcard beaches of fine white sand, swaying palms and crystal blue waters – you get the idea. 23 acres of beautifully manicured grounds are home to a haven of self catering suites, each with stunning sea views. It’s the perfect base for exploring the island’s abundant wildlife or just kicking back and soaking up the pretty Floridian scenery.


The barrier island of Sanibel is just a hop from mainland Florida (don’t worry, there’s a bridge) set in the heart of the pretty coastline of Fort Myers. As well as being home to Casa Ybel, you’ll find JN Darling National Wildlife Refuge where a kayak through the mangroves could well reward you with sightings of bottlenose dolphins or gentle giant manatees. It’s a haven for wildlife and a beautiful paradise getaway – the perfect winter escape.

Your room

Bed down in one of the spacious one or two bedroom suites and Casa Ybel will soon become your home away from home. Exuding an retro Florida holiday charm, each suite is equipped with an airy bedroom, ensuite bathroom, as well as a living room, kitchen and balcony complete with BBQ and stunning ocean views. A piña colada as the sun sets? Yes please.

Why we like it

It’s nice to indulge in a spot of pampering whilst taking time out and we particularly like Casa Ybel’s in-room service. Book some “me time” the Spatini Teabar Organic Spa & Hair Lounge and they’ll come to you so you can lay back in the comfort of your own space and enjoy a relaxing Lotus massage or rejuvenate with reflexology.
