SPRING – Who doesn’t want to be on Sanibel now, where Spring is actually Spring?!
SUMMER – The perfect season to enjoy a fun family getaway and escape the sultry summer heat. Here on Sanibel’s beautiful beaches, the temperatures are moderated by Gulf of Mexico breezes.

The Island Beach Club is ideally centrally located right on the beach on West Gulf Drive, with the Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, excellent restaurants, grocery stores, shopping and other attractions within easy biking distance. The Sanibel bike paths are paved, wide, flat and a great way to get around the island. Bicycles are easily rented locally at Finnimore's Cycle Shop and Billy's and their multiple-day rental packages are quite reasonable.
Sanibel Island has 14 miles of white sand beaches and World Class Shelling second only to the Seychelles Islands off the coast of Africa.
Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: Bob and Kerry Freeman live on lovely Sebago Lake in Maine most of the year, but enjoy frequent escapes to their other favorite place: Sanibel Island! Both Bob and Kerry telecommute to their jobs whether they are on the lake or on the island. Bob is a professor at Fuller Seminary in Pasadena, California, who teaches Leadership courses for Fuller’s on-line degree programs. Kerry, who is a former elementary school teacher, writes grants and does development work for Neighborhood Homework House, a nonprofit organization that provides tutoring and mentoring to at-risk youth, which she co-founded when they lived in Southern California. Kerry immensely enjoys photography and is continually inspired by the stunning variety and beauty of the birds and other wildlife found in the many nature preserves on the island.
Why the Owner Chose Island Beach Club: We chose Sanibel because of Sanibel’s impressive success in preserving the native wildlife areas with over 60 percent of the island protected as refuge areas, its fabulous network of bike paths that make getting around the island fun and easy, and for their lovely, shell-laden beaches.
The Island Beach Club was an easy choice for us for several reasons. First, Island Beach Club’s prime location attracted us – it doesn’t get better than right on the white sandy beach, yet located centrally on the island with easy bike rides to Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge in one direction and great restaurants and shopping in the other.
In addition, the spacious layout of the condo with large floor to ceiling windows overlooking the gulf and lush tropical vegetation had great appeal to us. The complex itself is well maintained and quiet, with the majority of the condos occupied by their owners who have enjoyed the Island Beach Club life for years.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: One of the unique features about this condo, that we love, is how the bright, airy interior, with its wrap-around floor-to-ceiling windows and the sliding glass wall which incorporates the screened lanai with the living area, gives you the wonderful feeling of living outdoors, yet with all the comfort and convenience of a well equipped home.
