              As a family we have been vacationing here for years, and are still amazed at the long beautiful beaches, wildlife, shells, and crowds don't exist. Walk across the street down the private path, sit and watch sunsets over the gulf of mexico. The bike path runs along the road in front of the condo unit. Bike into town, or to Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge. Kayak the mangroves, or take an Eco Tour. The movie theater and market are close by too. This lifestyle brings us back year after year.


              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2012

              About the owner: Hi, We purchased this condo a year ago after vacationing on the island for over 10 years. Our children are in college now and still love the time we spend together on Sanibel. During the summer the gulf is so warm, amazing to swim in. During the winter it is a break from the northern cold weather. We bike, swim, cook together and bring home a few amazing shells. One summer a school of stingray miles long swam by us, manatee and dolphins swim by, we have taken boat trips to Captiva, watched fish being caught right off the beach. Ride to the other end of the island to see the lighthouse. Or sit at the beach with your glass of wine watching an amazing sunset. That is my favorite thing to do..

              Why the Owner Chose Sea Shells of Sanibel:
              Seashells is a small quiet condo of 44 units, quiet and relaxing,both beach and pool accessible. There is only a 3 night minimum stay. Friends and family alike have returned many times. Once on the island there is no need to go anywhere else!

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              Walk the beach morning, noon or night; winter spring summer or fall. Each time the light is different and the sky enchanting. Stay with us and we will leave a gift card for Bailey's for food, drinks, sunscreen or anything else you may have forgotten to pack. Come and stay as we have for years, returning each time for a perfect vacation.
