Close to Nature

Relax and enjoy the peaceful island nature near one of the two private ponds, both of which are home to a variety of the island’s wildlife which often includes a morning concert performed by dozens of birds. Many of our guests enjoy bird watching right in our backyard. Occasionally viewing Yellow Crowned Night-Herons nesting, Great Blue & Blue Herons, Green Herons, Bald Eagles, Ibis, Ospreys, Snowy and Great Egrets, and Anhingas catching fish in the ponds.

The West-End Paradise is centrally located between the east end of Sanibel Island & Captiva Island. We are only about five hundred feet from the Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge and only two miles from the entrance & exit. Some of the island’s finest restaurants are also very close by as well as marinas, world-class shelling, fishing, canoeing, kayaking, shops, wave runners, parasailing, windsurfing, golf and 27 miles of bike trails. We also recommend checking out the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation and CROW while visiting the island......…. or maybe just hang out at the West-End Paradise’s most remarkable beach!!!
