Sea Shells of Sanibel condo description

If you want to return from your vacation completely relaxed and de-stressed, head for unit #3 at Sea Shells of Sanibel! Our 1350 square ft. main floor condominium is located in the building closest to the beach, yet it's far enough back for complete quiet and privacy. Decor is bright and cheerful, in Sanibel Island style. Floors in most of the apartment are tiled, with carpet in the two bedrooms. With three doors opening onto screened lanais, and ceiling fans in each room, you have the choice of opening up the apartment to Sanibel's fresh sea breezes. Or, if you prefer, close the windows and crank up the central air conditioning!

We are not located on the beach, but it is only a five-minute walk from the condo onto the beach via our private beach access path.

We keep beach chairs, a beach umbrella, swim toys and plenty of beach towels for your use on the beach or in our heated pool. Four bicycles are provided free of charge for our guests to use during their stay. The kitchen is fully equipped with all new appliances, so if you don't want to eat out all the time you can cook whenever you wish. Bailey's Grocery and General store is only 1.4 miles down the street. There is plenty of room in the fridge, so stock up if you like! Our dining room looks out on lush vegetation and opens onto a screened private lanai. Have your morning coffee out there in your jammies, because the master bedroom also opens onto the lanai!

For those days when you don't want to leave the apartment, we have cable TV and DVD players in both bedrooms and the living room. TVs in the living room and master bedroom are high definition. If you want to go out without missing your favorite show, there are VCRs in the living room and master bedroom. We also keep a collection of movies, books, puzzles and games. If you want to surf the internet, bring your laptop, because the wireless internet is fast and free! If you prefer to use an ethernet connection, we have that as well. A printer/scanner/copier is available for your use in the master bedroom.

For travelers with small children, a folding crib and high chair are supplied at no extra charge.

We are only minutes away from the Island Cinemas, Bailey's General Store, loads of unique shops and restaurants, and the famous Ding Darling wildlife refuge. Don't miss Ding Darling while you're here. You can ride your bikes or drive through this wonderful bird sanctuary. It hosts pelicans, ospreys, roseated spoonbills, egrets, cranes, raccoons, and the occasional gator! Guided tours are also available.

                      Year Purchased: 2004

                      About: My husband and I discovered Sanibel one winter about 15 years ago. Sick of the gloom and cold, he vowed that we would keep driving until we reached warmth and sunshine. It must have been a very cold winter, because we didn't stop until we got to Sanibel. It was love at first sight, and we've been coming back every year since. Five years ago, he finally talked me into buying a condominium here, and I'm so glad we did! This is probably the only place we go on vacation and actually rest--we ride bikes, walk the beach, read books, and enjoy the wildlife. We don't bring work here, and he doesn't take any phone calls from work. Utter bliss!

                      Why Sea Shells of Sanibel:
                      Sea Shells of Sanibel is one of the best-kept secrets on the island. We are located among private residential neighborhoods, only a few minutes walk from our private beach access path. Yet, since we're not right on the beach, we're priced much lower than other condominium units. The owners are a laid-back, friendly group, and many of them stay here through the winter. Children are welcome, and you won't hear anyone complaining about splashing in the pool or the noisy laughter of happy families. This makes for a much warmer, home-like atmosphere.
