The Parrot Nest

(a quiet place


to see more photos!

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.
