About Steve and Diane Klick

We live in Fort Myers and personally maintain the unit. You will not find a cleaner, well appointed and regularly updated condo.

Steve and Diane Klick purchased this condo in 1995

Why Steve and Diane Klick chose Sanibel

Originally from Chicago, we fell in love with Sanibel and Shell Island Beach Club on our first visit. In 1995 when buildings 5, 6 and 7 were built, we jumped at the chance to own this beautiful piece of paradise.

What makes this condo unique

We love the location on the quiet east end of the Island.

We are walking distance to some of our favorite restaurants including the Lighthouse Cafe, East End Deli (will deliver great subs or wraps), Gramma Dots for dockside dining and Pinocchios ice cream.

Sanibel experience

  • 5 of 5

Property was beautiful and well maintained. The Klicks did a wonderful job of making us feel right at home...a tropical home away from home. You can tell they take pride in their condo. They even surprised us with a note and key lime pie for our anniversary/birthday. We had an awesome, relaxing week and highly recommend this property. Sanibel Island in April is a gorgeous time of year - beautiful sunrises and sunsets. We couldn't have been happier to choose this place.

Great Condo and Owners

  • 5 of 5

My wife, 11 year old son and I spent a week at the condo. It was a very well maintained and comfortable place. The owners were very responsive. We had sent our deposit in prior to Hurricane Irma. The owner took the time out of their Hurricane preparations to reach out to us and let us know our options prior to making final payment. They also took the time after the Hurricane to put aside their own issues in Fort Myers to check on and report back the condition of the island and the condo. Fortunately everything weathered the storm quite well.

I was very appreciative of working with owners and would highly recommend this condo and owners. It was refreshing working with them in lieu of some of the larger management companies.

Book with them with zero hesitations that you will be well taken care of.

What an incredible condo to stay in. My husband and I come to Sanibel two to three times per year and have rented at various places. This condo far exceeded any other properties that we have rented. The condo was just as depicted in the pictures and when we walked in, felt like home. The owners had everything there to make the stay enjoyable. The kitchen was very well equipped and had many small items that was very much appreciated. Condo was exceptionally clean and well maintained. The view over the Gulf was spectacular and the beach was a very short walk down the path. The entire complex was well maintained and very easy to access. Steve and Diane provided excellent customer service, and we would recommend this property to others who are looking for a vacation on the Gulf of Mexico. We already have booked another week in May as we feel that this is a fantastic place to stay.

Peace on the Gulf

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved our stay at unit 7D. It was in perfect condition and very clean with a well-equipped kitchen.

It is a beach front property and we spent many hours beach walking and looking for shells. Breakfast on the veranda as the sun broke over the horizon was a daily treat. We would not hesitate to recommend the unit to friends and family.

Thank you Diane and Steve, and we hope to return soon.

3rd Time is the Charm

  • 5 of 5

This is our third time staying in this condo in 3 years. As always the condo was very clean, had a great view, and all of the amenities we needed for a lovely beach vacation. The shelling, beach, pool and hot tub are wonderful. And so close!

I asked my husband if he would ever want to try out another place to stay and his response was "no". He said we already know the owners are great to work with, are very responsive, that the condo is always nice and comfortable, and always had everything that we need. Plus, the free bikes are nice too.

We can't wait for our next visit!!

For you shellers out there; there are always shells. It just depends what you are looking for. We visited most every beach and each one has different treasures to find. Many were hiding in the water and sometimes just buried under the sand. We found some beauties even when people where saying the shelling wasn't great. We found beautiful shells at the beach right near the condo and by the lighthouse. PLEASE DO NOT TAKE LIVE SHELLS OR SAND DOLLARS!
