About The Owner

We've always loved Sanibel and have vacationed here for many years. After we stayed at Island Beach Club, we found we really liked the layout of the complex, the large heated pool, the community atmosphere, pet friendliness, and the proximity to many restaurants on the island.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2011

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this unit last May and we didn't want to leave this perfect vacation spot. The unit had everything we needed, and some extras we didn't expect like bikes in great condition and beach toys to build sandcastles, which made us feel like kids again. :) And talk about a view! From the gorgeous lanai to the spacious living room and kitchen, the view of the Gulf and lush grounds can't be beat. We also loved the convenience that there is a laundry room right in the unit. We know the unit is dog friendly, and we can't wait to bring our dog with us next time, as we were jealous of all the people walking their dogs on the beach. Sanibel is really a slice of heaven, and this lovely rental is the perfect place to call Home away from Home.

Adorable and perfect for families!

  • 5 of 5

What an adorable place on an adorable island! The condo was spacious and very clean, cute, and comfortable. The owners made every effort to provide our family with everything we needed for a fabulous vacation, including a variety of bikes, beach chairs, and sand and water toys. Designated covered parking was a great convenience, as was the full functioning laundry room. I loved sitting and dining on the lanai, and could even hear the waves from the Gulf. With kid friendly and pet friendly amenities, three televisions and and lots of space to relax, we look forward to renting this unit again, and making Island Beach Club a family tradition.

Our Visit

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I rented this unit Saturday, 8/3 - 8/9/2013. Found the sliding glass door open when we arrived. No more than an hour after arriving, the tv went out (throughout all the units) and we couldn't get that fixed until Monday. He did call to see that we had arrived. Since there is nothing open after 5:00 other than a VERY overpriced grocery store, we were a little upset. The unit was nice although the owners may not be getting all they are paying for with the cleaners. The ceiling fans were caked with dust, the stove had baked food in the bottom, the toaster oven still had used foil in it and the trash can in the kitchen definitely hadn't been washed out from the past several guests as it had all kinds of gross food and stuff in it. Anticipating the clear blue water, we were extremely disappointed to arrive and find the water brown and definitely not see through as someone had opened a dam or something and messed up the water. The condo was fine and though our visit left us pretty disappointed, there was really nothing I can say against the owners. The pictures are pretty true to life. Traveled with our 2 miniature doxies and did feel the $250 pet fee was a bit steep but didn't have much choice on that. Was lead to believe we'd find lots of craft stores with shell crafts (from brochures) but if they were there, we didn't see them. Definitely take a cooler and buy your groceries BEFORE you cross the bridge! It's $6 every time you leave the island. We did go to the Ford/Edison museum in Ft. Myers and enjoyed that.

Perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed 220C for the entire month of February this year. This is a real classy unit on a lovely property. The unit has everything you could want and is decorated in a sophisticated, unfussy style. The view from the wrap around window wall and lanai is stunning without being beachfront where privacy might be an issue. This is a great stretch of gulf beach, uncrowded with a front row seat for the dolphin/pelican show. Beach chairs and bikes fill the convenient ground level storage unit. Just don't think about taking February 2013 because we're coming back!

Sanibel Island is a barrier island just off the southwest coast of Florida by Fort Myers. The Island is about 12 miles long and 4 miles wide, and is known around the world for it's fabulous shelling beaches. Due to Sanibel Island's unique geographical orientation, lying East to West instead of North to South, it acts as a scoop and gathers seashells along it's beaches. Throughout the year, thousands of visitors come to enjoy Sanibel's beaches and hunt for that special seashell. Sanibel has an average temperature of around 75 degrees. While Sanibel Island is a wildlife refuge in and of itself, over 60% of the island is actually protected wildlife preserves. There are over 26 miles of bike trails and over 17 miles of beautiful beaches.
