Pros and Cons
The condo!!!! This condo is an excellent unit. Very clean and spacious and well furnished and great view. I have absolutely nothing bad to say about it. I would highly recommend anyone considering a stay at IBC to rent this unit.
I deducted one star because of issues revolving around the condo complex and staff. My wife and I spent 2-3 days shelling and had collected quite a few rare shells. (No, they were not live shells) We placed them in a bag and placed the bag in the carport as we did not want to bring the sand into the condo since the unit owners had posted a sign requesting renters to leave the sand at the beach. The bag was placed in a spot well out of view of anyone driving or walking by. In fact, you would have had to come into the carport and look around to find them. One day the entire bag was gone! I thought that someone must have come by and decided to "borrow" them until I saw the sweep marks all around the area where they were stored. I am guessing that the IBC maintenance or cleaning staff must have "apprehended" them. So all our rare and high-quality shells were gone!
While it was just my wife and me on this trip the entire complex seemed eerily quiet and appeared like many of the units were not rented. If you have a family and your kids are easily bored, this is not the place as there are not enough amenities to keep them busy when not on the beach. They do have a pool and shuffleboard but the pool closes at eight and who plays shuffleboard?
Thank you for taking the time to review your stay! Sorry to hear about the shells, and thank you for bringing it to our attention. We are so glad that you had a wonderful time and we look forward to seeing you again in the sun!
Spacious 2 bedroom condo
Stayed here with wife and two kids (3, 10mo). Unit is well furnished with updated kitchen. Plenty of space for family of four, especially in the master suite. Nice view of the ocean from the lanai.
Beds are in good condition w/memory foam toppers (just watch your shins on the frames). Updated kitchen is fully stocked with dinnerware, pots/pans, grilling utensils, etc. Also includes washer/dryer, which was convenient with little kids.
Most pleasant surprise was the storage unit was fully stocked with all the beach gear you would need. Nice Tommy Bahama beach chairs, umbrellas, buckets/shovels, wagon ... all you need to bring is sunscreen.
Would definitely stay in this unit again.
Hi Andy, thanks for the review. It's great to hear about your family vacation and we're happy that you enjoyed your stay. We appreciate the feedback.
Very nice accommodations. We had a great time.
The only issue is that we could not get the sliding glass door to open from the living room
Hi Amanda, thanks for leaving us a review. Our Operations Team has looked into the sliding glass door and it has been repaired. We appreciate your feedback on this unit.
Very nice property with a few issues.
This is a very nice property that is, for the most part, very well kept.
However, we had constant issues with the keys and locks for both the unit and the storage closet. We were told there were issues right after we booked, but they would be fixed before we arrived.
They were not and we had continuous difficulty with both locking and unlocking the doors.
We reported these early on and were assured the issues would be resolved, but they never were.
The beds in the second bedroom were so hard that our daughter had to sleep elsewhere.
The television service was hinky and stopped working several times, which was a problem since it stormed heavily nearly every day we were there.
Beyond the issues with the unit itself, there was constant construction being done throughout what is normally a very quiet complex. The last two days we were there were marred by construction in an adjoining unit punctuated by constant loud drilling and very loud conversations complete with plenty of obscenities.
This was our third stay at this complex and the worst experience by far.
Property was great!
We enjoyed the condo! Just not happy with the island itself. Just not our. Up of tea!
We have always loved visiting Sanibel Island while our kids were growing up! We have stayed at a few different places over the years and this trip was our favorite! We just love the Island Beach Club and this unit was pristine! So clean and updated beautifully and the mattress was awesome! Would highly recommend it and we plan to return.
