Year Purchased: 2011

About: 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.
