"This was my family & I six year coming to Sanibel, & our second year staying in this condo. This was by far one of our best years!! The condo was absolutely amazing, it's convienent to everything , & not to mention relaxing!! The pool & beach are super close & everything else is just a bike ride away. The owner was awesome & quick to respond to any questions we had!! Thank you for letting us stay here again. We will be back next year!"

"Everythis was exactly as promised;The unit was clean, and had a full compliment of kitchen appliances, plates, bowls, pots and pans etc. The unit is absolutely wonderful and it has a fantastic view of the Gulf. It's just a short walk to the beach. The east end location insures that it is peaceful and quiet."

"We have just returned home from a fantastic week in Sanibel staying in this unit at Shell Island Beach Club.
The photos are an exact depiction of what you can expect…the ocean view puts you in vacation mode immediately! The vaulted ceiling really adds to the spacious and bright feel of the condo. All rooms are a good size and the beds and sofas are all very comfy. There are no photos of the bathrooms but they are both very nice and up to date. Each bathroom has a hair dryer.
My little girl loved the guest bedroom with its fish theme and the Winnie The Pooh sitting cushions. We also rented 2 playpens from the office for $10 each for the week, which was great.
The screened in balcony is awesome. You can sit and/or play out there and not worry about bugs (or children sticking themselves or anything else through the railings). There is also a stand out there to hang all your beachwear to dry which was a very useful addition.
The kitchen has pretty much anything you would need. There are lots of plastic bowls and plates if you have kids in tow.
The grounds are lovely and well taken care of. Everything is very clean.
This condo is very well located. It is steps to the pool and just past the pool is the short boardwalk to the beach. We had 2 little ones with us so the close proximity was great. The pool is such a nice temperature. There is a bin that has lots of pool noodles and larger sized pails and shovels and a few nets. We mostly ended up using that stuff instead of all the beach paraphernalia that I rammed into our suitcase.
We went out for bike rides a couple of times. There are lots of bikes and helmets are available through the office and a few bikes with child seats on the back.
There is a nice covered park at the other end of town and we tried out The Island Cow restaurant which was a casual, well priced, easy place to eat.
We also went on a dolphin watching boat tour in Captiva which was so much fun.
On our last 2 evenings there we had the awesome experience of exploring the ocean floor during low tide (the office can give you a chart for that). I have never done that before and it was the coolest thing ever. If you have not ever done that, do it!! We saw so many sand dollars as well as a few starfish and all other kinds of sea creatures moving around trying to burrow themselves into the wet sand waiting for the tide to come back in.
All in all we had a fantastic time and would certainly recommend this resort and unit!"
