Casa Ybel Resort is an award-winning destination resort that maintains the essence of Sanibel's vintage sanctuary island spirit. Embraced by 23 well-manicured acres of beachfront property, the resort provides a taste of genuine island peace and exclusivity. Casa Ybel Resort's roots go back to the mid 1880's, when Reverend George Barnes built Sanibel's first cottage after his boat ran aground on the island's shore. He created Sanibel's first inn, and when his daughter was betrothed to a resort guest, he decided to build her a grand manor on the inn's property. He named it Thistle Lodge, and celebrities and dignitaries soon were drawn by its elegance and serenity; guests such as Thomas Edison and Henry Ford visited to escape mainland pressures.
