About Property Manager
Mike and Pat, two best friends from Milwaukee, first learned about Sanibel Island while working their way through college as tour guides at the Schlitz Brewery. They fell in love with the island and returned every year to visit. In 1979 they became original timeshare owners at Shell Island Beach Club. Mike and Pat each married the women of their dreams in the 1980's and began creating island memories with their families. Although living 1400 miles apart, their combined seven children have become fast friends while growing up creating their own island memories each year on their combined Sanibel Island vacations. Over the years many of Mike & Karen and Pat & Eileen's family & friends have joined them on Sanibel, creating many more shared island memories and continuing the annual tradition. Mike and Pat's families and friends look forward every year to the annual Sanibel Island get together, counting down the next years visit from each departure. Since 2008 Pat and Mike have been searching the entire island for just the right property to share the dream with others and provide more frequent visits for they and their families. As one of their children said it best '' We live on Sanibel Island one week of the year and spend the other 51 weeks waiting to return home". Out of the mouths of our children many of our island memories are formed. After touring properties for sale in almost every complex on the island for three years Mike and Pat realized that they had stumbled onto the very best development on the island over 30 years before, so they chose the very best building closest to the beach and found a way to obtain a coveted top floor unit. Welcome to Shell Island 5C the home of island Memories for two generations over 30 years. We look forward to sharing our slice of paradise with you and the fabulous island memories you are sure to enjoy with those you love.

best springbreak ever
the location was perfect but the best part was the people . great pool great ocean for kids to play in .
We had a great time on Sanibel Island. It was our first time there. We saw all sorts of sea creatures, which my two small children loved! We took the advice of owners and went to many of the places they suggested...even going to Pinocchio's Ice cream twice :). One of my favorite parts was drinking my coffee on the screened in porch, while watching the sunrise. It was one of the most relaxing vacations we ever had!
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!

The condo was very nice. Excellent location and very nice pool. We enjoyed our beach walks every day. A very accommodating owner.
This was our second time in this unit! We love this unit! The owners are easy to deal with. Very generous! The views are stunning! The resort is beautiful! We wouldn't stay anywhere else! Thanks for a wonderful and relaxing place to stay!
Best location in the East End
The condo was furnished with attractive, comfortable furniture. We ate out a few times but mostly ate our meals sitting on the lanai watching the waves, beach walkers, boats, birds, etc. No charge for the bikes. Refundable cash deposit for each beach chair - $35 - beach towel - $10, and $20 for umbrella with $2 deducted for each day of use. We enjoyed biking, walking on the beach, and collecting shells. We took the Captiva Cruise day tour to Cayo Costa State Park. Spent 5 hours at the park. Found sea urchins. We really enjoyed staying in this well furnished condo, and we made a reservation for May 2015.
