I rarely write reviews but my experience at Tarpon Tale was so enjoyable in so many ways that it deserves one. First, the grounds are well-maintained and reflect the excellent taste of the owners/managers who have created a true tropical retreat in a small space. Secondly, the room was very clean and well-appointed in a coastal vibe that truly felt like an escape. Third, Dawn (the property manager and former owner) is a pleasure to speak with and a wealth of Sanibel knowledge.
In summary, I highly recommend this boutique property for a wonderful Sanibel experience.
The inn was very charming, just a short walk to the beach, restaurants across the street, bikes were a wonderful benefit, quiet and peaceful and all around great. Our hosts, Dawn and Joe, couldn't have been nicer or more accomodating. We'll definitely be back.
We had a great stay! The property is well taken care of with pride. Very clean. All the beach things you need are provided… towels, wagon, umbrella, chairs. Grill, bikes and hammocks… they have thought of it all to make your stay great!!
