BOOK YOUR CASA YBEL GETAWAY TODAY!
Making our way back… At Casa Ybel Resort, we are working diligently at rebuilding our beloved property. West Gulf Drive was one of the hardest hit areas on the island, but we will not waver in our determination to bring back this treasured Sanibel Island icon.
We’ve made significant progress in our accommodations! New roofs, new HVAC, sliding glass doors, windows and doors have been replaced. Structural repairs, exterior landings and staircases are well underway. The interiors are being fully renovated in preparation for everyone’s return.
The Registration building has been restored, new tennis and pickleball courts are under construction. Having to be completely re-engineered to accommodate development codes and requirements, the rebuild and repairs of the Thistle Lodge Beachfront Restaurant and the pool deck are now under contract and slated for completion this year. Proposals for landscaping, parking lot resurfacing, curbing and lighting are currently under review.
Beach renourishment is underway on Sanibel Island. All of our public beaches are now open. At Lighthouse Beach Park, visitors can now enjoy a close-up view of our iconic 1884 lighthouse that lost one of its legs withstanding the storm. It’s become the symbol of Sanibel’s strength and resiliency.
Some small businesses have re-opened their doors — including restaurants, shops, art galleries, boating excursions and nature attractions while much of the island continues to restore. We encourage you to support the local businesses while being aware of the current conditions and challenges faced by visitors.
Once again, we are grateful for the outpouring of love and support received. We are thankful for everyone’s positivity and patience as we and our island recover from catastrophe. We look forward to welcoming you back to Sanibel Island and Casa Ybel Resort when the time comes…
