Sanibel replacement for vacation

Sadly our yearly Sanibel condo/apartment/hotel complex had all four rooves blown off during the latest hurricane and is being gutted. It may or may not return.

We therefore need a new place for our family to vacation during Spring break. Basically the "family" consists of two adults and two 24 year old grad students.

Sanibel was great.. cozy, friendly, etc. Any recommendations on where we can go instead? The week is usually first or second of March.

You are correct - Sanibel is great.
You have to go further SOUTH, North are many distractions.

The best would be Naples. May be also Marco Island, but not as good.
Ft.Myers Beach (only on the South end, North has lots of spring breakers) or Bonita Beach/Bonita Springs is also O.K.

We have taken our annual vacation at Sanibel for six straight years. We have been closely monitoring the condition of the condo we rent at Sundial and it appears everything will be ready in December. Considering the numerous properties that should be available by Spring Break, are you sure that there isn't an alternative. I just could not imagine going anywhere else in Florida that would come close to the beautiful island. Good luck.
