We provide this section of our website so that you can get a feel for where we are located. We do this in two ways. First, we have several maps that let you zoom in to Old Town Sanibel and our position relative to the island's geography. Second, we provide a sequence of aerial photos which will let you visually zoom into our location. Please select a method below.
