"Our family was looking for a place where we could come together and share the holiday's, and for some, the first time on a Florida beach. This place was perfect!! There were 6 of us (adults), so the condo was the perfect size, giving us plenty of room to rest and play. The location was amazing for viewing the beach, walking and shelling the beach, paddle boarding the gulf shore, as well as location to dining, shopping, grocery, and enjoying all the sights on the island. It was football bowl season, so we loved being able to enjoy the flat screen TVs for watching our favorite teams (Go Hogs!), and then heading to the sand and surf for other hours on end. Royal Shell staff was extremely friendly and helpful, making the processes for checking in and out, quick and easy. We were provided with all we needed when we arrived, as far as linens, towels, paper goods, kitchen staples and clean dishes/wares, and beach chairs. (Thanks for the Keurig coffee maker...we were hoping you would have one, as well as the blender :-) Also, thank goodness for the in-house washer/dryer that we made good use of from our comings and goings to the beach.
The condo was located in a very quiet location of the property. We were thankful for there being stairs close by, but even more, an elevator that helped those of us who needed to sometimes ride. Being a corner condo, we loved the wrap-around lanai, all the seating and dining available out there. (We did have an issue with the sliding glass doors going out onto the lanai, but reported it to maintenance, they sent someone out immediately, and even though they were unable to fix it right then, we made do just fine.) The inside living area was very clean, pleasantly decorated, and furnished in a way that was comfortable for all of us, with chairs, tables, comfortable beds. The bathrooms/shower/ tubs were also very very clean.
A couple of us have been coming to Sanibel for close to 25 years. This year, we wanted to share this beautiful island with family whom had never been before. This condo was perfect for doing that. We enjoyed each other and island life for a short time, but now have great memories to cherish. Given more chances to come back in the future, we will most definitely want to stay here again. All we needed other than what was provided for us at this wonderful beach home........ was a little more time!"
