"We are typically a crazy busy family, who runs from one event to the next. My intention for this vacation was to do nothing except relax and that was accomplished! I am a family member of the owner and we only stayed for a week and without charge, but what a week that was! My kids did not want to leave, and I did not want to leave. My 2 younger kids went from playing on the beach to swimming in the pool. And my 18 year old daughter went from laying out on the beach to biking around on the trails to communicating with her friends back home on her iPad with the free WiFi. The house is just beautifully decorated and has everything you need for a great vacation, from beach towels to pool towels to a fully stocked kitchen. Everything was provided which made my son happy because he has smoothies everyday and the blender there works better than the one I have at home! We visited one of the public beaches just to explore but we were very happy to spend the remainder of the week at the beach just across the street for several reasons, no worries about finding a parking space, less crowded, no charge to park, and easy to run home if something was forgotten. The privacy afforded by the huge lot was very nice as well. The kids brought their soccer ball and were able to play outside and run around. Sanibel is an amazing place to visit and if you want to be comfortable there is no reason to stay anywhere else!"

"We absolutely fell in love with Palm Paradise. The beautiful setting, close proximity to the beach, and the comfort of this gorgeous home made us feel really at home immediately. The furnishing and decor were perfect, and the pool area, surrounded by lovely flowering shrubs and lush foliage was a joy. There was so much space, along with everything you might need and so much more. We enjoyed the beach equipment and the bikes, and early mornings and evenings spent on the terrace lazing on the wicker chairs was so nice. A lovely spot for listening to the birds or reading.
We found the wildlife fascinating - birds, lizards, frogs, occasional snake (harmless) not to mention the ibis, great egret and cardinals that visited. Osprey circled above frequently.
We were lucky enough to spot a bobcat one night as we returned from a restaurant, and at J N Ding Darling and the Bailey Tract, we saw alligators and racoons.
The photos of the house don't show how spacious it really is and I can honestly say that having rented many homes on Sanibel and Captiva, including one very expensive Captiva beach house, this house is our favourite. It was a joy to spend time there and I really hope we will return. It was well worth the nine hour plus flight!"

"My husband and I stayed in this condo with two children. The condo had everything we needed and more. Very clean and comfortable. It was very family friendly with plates and cups that the kids could use too. We loved the view from the screened in porch of the pool, ocean and sunrises. Amazing! The bathrooms were updated and nice. Plenty of spots to hang up drying bathing suits in the bathrooms or on the balcony. Our days were spent biking, going to the pool and the beach. The beach and pool are in close proximity to the condo so it is a short walk back if you need forget something. There were always plenty of bikes available and the office had helmets. There were games and sand toys in the condo and the office had other items to check out if needed like movies or grilling tools. There were pool noodles and toys available at the pool as well so no need to bring as much. The rental staff was very easy to work with and the staff in the office at Shell Island Beach Club is very willing to offer up tips/suggestions or answer questions. Shell Island’s layout makes the property never feel crowded.
Thank you for up keeping such a great condo to allow us to have the relaxing vacation we were looking to have! Highly recommend a trip on the Sanibel Thriller for a great dolphin experience."

"Our stay in D42 was wonderful! The pictures didn't do the unit justice! Beautifully updated and renovated, it was like staying in a 4 star hotel!
The kitchen is modern and well equipped. We found that everything we could think of was there, even a crock pot!
The bedrooms were large and had ample room to move around. And the tva in each bedroom and family room were a great size! You don't have to worry about watching a 13 inch tv!
The master bathroom was heavenly! A huge glorious walk in shower, and counter space galore!
The outside patio and deck were a nice bonus! Great place to have your morning coffee or evening glass of wine! Just watch out for the no seeums. I left with a 100 or more bites! Of course that had nothing tondo with the unit, just Florida!
Overall a great, kid friendly, nicely appointed condo to stay in!!!"
