About the property

Spacious Gulf View Condo With 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths And Large Screened Lanai

Escape to Paradise Found – Island Beach Club 220B, located on Sanibel Island, one of “America’s Happiest Seaside Towns”! (Coastal Living, Oct. 2013) and "One of the Ten Most Beautiful Coastal Towns" (The Culture Trip, North America, May 2016).

It’s all about –

LOCATION! North America’s finest shelling beach awaits you just across the grass from your front door! Sanibel’s white sand beach is just 150 yards away and is perfect for all ages, including families with small children, with gentle waves lapping the gradually sloping shoreline.

LOCATION! Island Beach Club, a private, beautifully landscaped beachfront condominium on prestigious West Gulf Drive is centrally located within an easy bike ride to shopping, restaurants and Sanibel’s famous nature preserves on the fabulous network of bike and walking trails.

LOCATION! 220B, our bright and breezy condominium unit features wrap-around floor to ceiling windows and a lovely lanai looking south out to lush tropical vegetation and the Gulf of Mexico. This little piece of Paradise comes with all the amenities of a recently renovated well-equipped kitchen, laundry room with washer and dryer, two spacious bedrooms with their own bathrooms, your own assigned covered parking place and a private locked storage room equipped with beach chairs, beach umbrella and beach toys.

Every season is the perfect season to enjoy the lovely, world famous Sanibel Island beaches and Nature Preserves:

FALL – migrating birds are arriving daily and island life is at a delightfully slow pace. It is the perfect time for families with preschoolers as well as avid birders, photographers and shellers to enjoy a getaway here on the beach that boasts more varieties of shells than any other beach in Florida. The annual Ding Darling Days, celebrating National Wildlife Refuge week, is held each year near the end of October.

WINTER – Snowbird season is in full swing, as are the cultural offerings of the theater, Big Arts, and the Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge, both offering full calendars of cultural events, activities and workshops. And, of course, the weather, as always, is wonderful.

SPRING – Who doesn’t want to be on Sanibel now, where Spring is actually Spring?!

SUMMER – The perfect season to enjoy a fun family getaway and escape the sultry summer heat. Here on Sanibel’s beautiful beaches, the temperatures are moderated by Gulf of Mexico breezes.

220B offers all the comforts of home in a Paradise setting. The 1,350 square foot condo is air-conditioned, and fully-equipped to assure you a comfortable, relaxing get away. The master suite has a king bed with private bathroom, walk-in closet and private access to the lanai. The second bedroom has twin beds and a private bath with a large walk-in shower. The spacious living and dining areas have the feel of being outdoors, with the wrap-around floor to ceiling windows and double sliding glass doors leading to the large screened lanai. The living areas are furnished in island tropical décor with seating for six around the dining table and a sofa, which converts to a queen-size bed. The screened lanai is the perfect place to start your day, enjoying breakfast as you watch the sunrise over the gulf or curling up on the lounge chair with a book in the afternoon. Paddle ceiling fans in each room and on the lanai add to your comfort. WiFi, flat screen HDTV’s in the living room and master bedroom, a Bose system to hook up to your iPod and a DVD player are all provided to keep you as connected as you choose to be.

In addition to its prime beachfront location, the Island Beach Club features a large, immaculately maintained, heated pool surrounded by tropical gardens, a new outdoor cooking area with built in propane cooking grills, shuffleboard and outdoor showers. 220B is accessible by both stairs and elevator.

It is all about location, location, location, so come enjoy Paradise Found – Island Beach Club, 220B! We have given our condo personal attention to assure that your vacation is relaxing, comfortable and memorable, and you will have our on-island property manager just a phone call away should any need or questions arise.

About Bob and Kerry Freeman, Owners and Managers

Bob and Kerry Freeman live on lovely Sebago Lake in Maine most of the year, but enjoy frequent escapes to their other favorite place: Sanibel Island! Both Bob and Kerry telecommute to their jobs whether they are on the lake or on the island. Bob is a professor at Fuller Seminary in Pasadena, California, who teaches Leadership courses for Fuller’s on-line degree programs. Kerry, who is a former elementary school teacher, writes grants and does development work for Neighborhood Homework House, a nonprofit organization that provides tutoring and mentoring to at-risk youth, which she co-founded when they lived in Southern California. Kerry immensely enjoys photography and is continually inspired by the stunning variety and beauty of the birds and other wildlife found in the many nature preserves on the island.

Bob and Kerry Freeman, Owners and Managers purchased this condo in 2013

Why Bob and Kerry Freeman, Owners and Managers chose Florida

We chose Sanibel because of Sanibel’s impressive success in preserving the native wildlife areas with over 60 percent of the island protected as refuge areas, its fabulous network of bike paths that make getting around the island fun and easy, and for their lovely, shell-laden beaches.

The Island Beach Club was an easy choice for us for several reasons. First, Island Beach Club’s prime location attracted us – it doesn’t get better than right on the white sandy beach, yet located centrally on the island with easy bike rides to Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge in one direction and great restaurants and shopping in the other.

In addition, the spacious layout of the condo with large floor to ceiling windows overlooking the gulf and lush tropical vegetation had great appeal to us. The complex itself is well maintained and quiet, with the majority of the condos occupied by their owners who have enjoyed the Island Beach Club life for years.

What makes this condo unique

One of the unique features about this condo, that we love, is how the bright, airy interior, with its wrap-around floor-to-ceiling windows and the sliding glass wall which incorporates the screened lanai with the living area, gives you the wonderful feeling of living outdoors, yet with all the comfort and convenience of a well equipped home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much Bob and Kerry for helping us build family memories! I wish you could have seen the amazed, happy and wonderful faces of my grandchildren as they saw they ocean for the first time. Thank you also for being so thoughtful and caring with every little detail. We enjoyed using the beach toys and the umbrella was so very welcome. We were forced to work the shark puzzle over quite a few times. What a blessing that there are generous spirited people like yourselves willing to share your beautiful home with us! Dios Bendiga!

The Island Beach Club is ideally centrally located right on the beach on West Gulf Drive, with the Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, excellent restaurants, grocery stores, shopping and other attractions within easy biking distance. The Sanibel bike paths are paved, wide, flat and a great way to get around the island. Bicycles are easily rented locally at Finnimore's Cycle Shop and Billy's and their multiple-day rental packages are quite reasonable.

Sanibel Island has 14 miles of white sand beaches and World Class Shelling, second only to the Seychelles Islands off the coast of Africa.

We loved the unit as always and look forward to our return in 2018. We could use brighter light in the master bedroom. We appreciated the quick response by the rental agency, Selection Vacation Properties, for our one call for help with the smoke dectector.

Wonderful Rental

  • 5 of 5

The condo was everything we could have asked for and more. The condo, itself, is spacious and comfortable, with a fully equipped kitchen, roomy dining area, and large living room. We loved sitting on the lanai, enjoying the view of the ocean. We also really appreciated having access to the beach chairs, umbrella, and outdoor equipment. The pool was a bonus, too! Overall, a wonder place to stay!
