Sanibel Island is a barrier island located on the southwest coast of Florida just off Fort Myers. Sanibel Island is about 12 miles long and 4 miles wide and is famous for its shelling beaches. There are over 60 species of shells to be found on Sanibel beaches. Sanibel Island's unique geographical orientation, lying perpendicular to the mainland rather than the normal horizontal orientation makes the island act as a scoop as the Gulf of Mexico tides deposit shells along it's white sandy beaches. Sanibel consistently ranks as one of the best shelling beaches in the world. Sanibel Island is special in so many ways. 70% of the island is protected in wildlife preserves. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge offers an opportunity to drive, bike, or walk through the many habitats of the island. Sanibel Island also strives to keep Sanibel, Sanibel.

Sanibel Island does however greet it's guests with excellent experiences at dozens of locally owned eateries, groceries, bustling local businesses, and friendly residents. Sanibel is a shopper's delight with many boutique shops and galleries. Sanibel Island provides over 26 miles of bike trails and over 17 miles of beaches for walking, shelling, sunning, kite flying, and swimming.

                      • Sanibel Island is a barrier island just off the southwest coast of Florida by Fort Myers. Sanibel is about 12 miles long and 4 miles wide, and is known around the world for its fabulous shelling beaches. Due to Sanibel Island's unique geographical orientation, lying East to West instead of North to South, it acts as a scoop and gathers seashells along its beaches. Throughout the year, thousands of visitors come to enjoy Sanibel's beaches and hunt for that special seashell. Sanibel has an average temperature of about 75 degrees. While Sanibel Island is a wildlife refuge in and of itself, over 60% of the island is protected wildlife preserves. There are over 26 miles of bike trails and over 17 miles of beautiful beaches for great walking, shelling, sunning and swimming....moreless

                        The unit was exceptionally clean and well maintained. Royal Shell was most helpful/responsive to our contacts. Tarpon Beach was very well located for us, this being our first visit to the area and played a large part in our favorable feelings. Unfortunately we likely will not stay there next year as we will be needing three bedrooms but we do highly recommend it.

                        Recommended for: Families with young children, age 55+, tourists without a car, girls getaway.

                        Manager response: Thank you for your favorable review. I'm happy that your time at Edge Water Escape encourages you to return to Sanibel. I'll miss having you next year, but the only thing I can't change is adding a third bedroom!

                        This condo was all we thought it would be, and more. It was clean, and well maintained. The photos are accurate, showing the overall appearance. The owner was extremely helpful in answering all my questions. We would recommend this property to friends and relatives. Thank you Carla, and thank you Royal Shell. We shall return.

                        Hi Carla, I wanted to let you know that we had a very good time this week and really enjoyed the stay in your unit. It is very nice and everything was clean and bright when we arrived, and the unit was everything advertised. Having stayed at Tarpon Beach for many years, we have a very good perspective of a couple of other units and yours is one of the best. We would definitely consider coming back next year to your rental.

At the end of each vacation we were already planning our next trip. It was love at first sight. Our Dream began during those early visits. 'Someday we want to own a piece of this paradise.' Our dream came true May of 2012. We are delighted to share our bit of paradise with you. We have teamed up with professional on island managers to ensure your stay is the very best. Every Guest is important and unique. Let us know what you think. We want to share your views with other potential guests. We hope you will feel relaxed and comfortable during your stay. Nothing can compare with the calm relaxation of a stay in paradise. Carla & Jim
