Sea Shells of Sanibel condo description

Our lovely 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom unit at the 'Seashells of Sanibel' complex is directly across the street from our private gulf beach access 300 yds from condo (beach equipment, chairs, umbrella, cooler all provided.) Condo is newly updated and very well maintained as a 'home away from home' for our guests. Enjoy Sanibel Island in our comfortable, quiet and spacious unit. We are on the 2nd floor (2 of 2), our screened in lanai overlooks tropical vegetation where you can enjoy early morning sun and quiet with your coffee. There are three color premium cable TVs including new HDTVs and DVD/CD player, free wireless internet in the unit and telephone with free long distance calls. The unit is tastefully decorated 'Florida-style'. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need if you decide to stay home for a change to relax and eat-in including brand new flat top oven. There is a new king size bed in the master bedroom, two twin beds in the guest room, brand new full size pull out sleeper sofa and Graco playpen.

Sanibel Shell Museum is located across the street from the Rec Center also on San-Cap Rd. You can walk to the Stone Crab bar/restaurant which is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and is directly across street. Easy and scenic quick drive to Captiva Island beaches, dining and shops.
