Spectacular view; exceptional owners
My wife and I had the distinct privilege of staying at this property for a month. I think we had the best view on the island. The owners, Barry & Fran, were exceptional in terms of communicating with us regarding developments in the Covid-19 regulations. Their attention to detail is unsurpassed.
Many thanks Vince for your very kind words. Fran and I make this unit our winter home and love it deeply. We try to keep it special for ourselves and for all who come to visit. That's why we make it a point to speak personally with each guest who makes a booking--to assure we are a good fit for each other. And it was particularly pleasing to have dealt with you during the most intense part of the corona virus lockdown. You immediately made us feel at ease that you and Linda would be the ideal first guests as Sanibel re-opened for vacation rentals. Now that your month-long stay is over, our hunch proved right on target. We look forward to hosting you again someday soon.
Perfect condo- has everything!
Perfect location- close to everything
Thank you Janet. It was a pleasure meeting you as we arrived for our annual winter stay. By the way, thanks for leaving the condo in excellent shape! It was a pleasure to have you and Chris as our guests.
In good part, Island Beach Club P6D is special because it's our home for half the year. And we are pretty particular about how we furnish and maintain it. If it's well-equipped, it's because we want that for ourselves. If it's well maintained, it's because we dislike having things go un-repaired. So, you get more of a home experience than many other rental properties we've been in.
Of course, we can't control that incredible waterfront view--it's just a bonus feature! We're delighted you had a great vacation in our magic place.
A Wonderful Week
We enjoyed another wonderful week at Island Beach Club! We consider this unit the best Sanibel has to give. Spectacular views overlooking the gulf, and the condo is immaculate, updated and gorgeous!
Fran and I happen to wholeheartedly agree with Jane's review!
And we are delighted she took time to write it. We will arrive for our annual winter stay on Dec 14 and are eagerly awaiting that first sweeping water view from the front hallway. Almost all our guests say they will never forget seeing it.
We plan more upgrades this winter to keep our magic place, in Jane's words, "...immaculate, updated and gorgeous".
Sadly, we displaced Jane for 2020 as we are planning to extend our stay to 6-months. But we're keeping her on our active waiting list because we want very much to welcome her back sometime in the future.
Another week in paradise
You will not find any better location than P6D. It’s so close to the beach. The views at sunrise and sunset can’t be beat. The furnishings are all first class. The beds sleep great. The kitchen has everything you could want. Berry and Fran are great hosts. You won’t regret staying at P6d.
Thanks you Kevin for this most very nice review. Potential guests want to hear what previous guests have experienced, so we are grateful for every comment we get.
We are about to arrive on Sanibel for our annual winter stay and have a number of upgrades planned. We'll replace some aging casement windows with new impact glass, install new aluminum frame and screen on the lanai, replace the couch and repair an inadequately sealed slider door. We do these things because this is our home for 6-months each year. We are particular and it's part pf the reason we're pretty confident you'll enjoy staying here when we're gone.
Thanks to all who stayed with us in 2019 and provided invaluable feedback and suggestions!
Our favorite Sanibel condo
This condo is truly magical. From the moment we walk in the door and see that awesome floor to ceiling ocean view, I can literally feel a big sigh run through my body. This was our third time in this unit and it is top notch! The owners care about their guest’s experience. It’s beautiful! It’s clean! The decor is lovely and tasteful, echoing the ocean views steaming in the windows. What more could a person want?
A great thank you to Meg and Peter. This is one of the nicest reviews we've gotten! It happens to coincide with how we feel about our home and how we try to treat all who come to visit. We are sorry our decision to stay longer next year prevents you from re-booking. We wish you the very best and were delighted to have had you stay with us the past 3 years.

About Barry and Fran Wilson
Fran and Barry Wilson owned P6D from 1997-2004. We sold it, very reluctantly, to move to California for business reasons. But we never forgot this magic place and missed it terribly when we occasionally returned to Sanibel. In October, 2014 the person we'd sold it to 10 years earlier put it up for sale. We bought it back before the realtor could host a single open house!

Why Barry and Fran Wilson chose Sanibel
Sanibel Island is a magical experience -- as is our condo. The views, the beach, the seashells, plus miles and miles of bike paths to ride and beach to walk will keep you busy and content for weeks. There is excellent dining, an abundance of nature experiences to absorb and once you cross the bridge, a welcome respite from the everyday world. In our twenty years visiting Sanibel, we have never found a place as perfect for enjoying that respite as Island Beach Club unit P6D. Its sweeping, unobstructed views of the beach inspire us to this day.
What makes this Condo unique
Top Floor Corner at the west end of the beachfront building. Breathtaking water and beach views. You can hear the waves but except for that, it's ultimately quiet, ultimately private. Almost uniquely at Island Beach Club, no one passes the front door unless they are coming to visit you. The overhang of the roof provides just the right amount of shade from the all-day sunshine. The penthouse floor provides not just the best views but also unprecedented privacy from passing beach walkers. You hardly need shades (although we have electric ones). A unique design difference applies only to the three units at this end of the building....they have a reversed floor plan which eliminates a view intrusion from the next door lanai. True privacy and the best beach view on Sanibel are the result. You may never require other entertainment but there are 3 flat-screen TVs with VCRs and DVD players just in case. We also provide unlimited USA phone calling and a top-end cable channel subscription.
