  • Location, Location, Location!

    "This condo is located on the corner of the second floor of the building with ocean front views of Gulf of Mexico. Beautiful sunsets! The condo itself is small with enough room for 2 people. It has 2 small decks - one off the living area, the other off the bedroom. The kitchen has lots of dishware and the like. Full size refrigerator, stove with oven, microwave, and dishwasher. The only thing missing was a kettle. There is only enough room for one person to work. The condo is decorated with beach accessories. There is a small storage room with lawn chairs, beach toys, extra bedding, etc. It has air conditioning as well. The property has lounge chairs on a wood deck, tiki hut to escape the sun, and a hose to wash your shoes and feet of sand. We saw dolphins, pelicans, ospreys, and other shore birds. The dolphins were fairly close to shore. There is a very long stretch of beach - you can walk to "Times Square" to the north and to "Lovers Key" to the south. We alternated walks every morning. The beach is hard pack so it is easy to walk on barefoot if you choose. Lots of people walking or biking. We spent the previous week on the east coast of Florida when Hurricane Matthew was coming. We had to leave a day earlier than planned and with no hotels to be had, my husband checked the open days of the condo and contacted the owner and we were able to get in a day earlier, for which we were very grateful. There is a Publix grocery store directly across the street. Very handy. We ate at restaurants close by in the area - Charley's Boathouse Grill, Heidi's Bistro, The Doghouse, Smoked Oyster Brewery, we ordered pizza, and had fresh subs from the Publix grocery. My complaints about the condo - it needs a deep clean top to bottom - leather furniture should be washed off. The mattress on the bed needs to be replaced. It is wore out, too soft with caved in spots. Very uncomfortable. This is a very small property with 8 units and has an elevator and covered parking. The whole property is clean and seemingly well kept. Laundry room is on the bottom and grills are available in another room."

  • Excellent As Always!

    "We stayed in this home for the 2nd time, and once again, it was amazing. I'm in love with this house, and can't say enough good things about it! It's cozy, yet roomy and the location is perfect. I love the fact that it's set back off the beach, as well as the street. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone!"

  • Great place on the beach

    "We very much enjoyed our visit at this condo. It is very clean and we found everything we needed while here. The owner Linda is very nice to work with! A few small things that made our stay nicer: The lanai is screened and has a ceiling fan. We had coffee out here every morning. It was 90 and humid all week but this made it enjoyable to be outside. There is a basket full of menus and things to do that we found very helpful. There were plenty of hangers in the closet. The building is the very last one before Bowditch Point Park. It is very quiet here. There is also a trolley stop at Bowditch if you want to ride that to Times Square rather than deal with the parking and traffic. We would certainly stay here again."

  • Great Family Rental

    "My husband and I stayed in this condo with two children. The condo had everything we needed and more. Very clean and comfortable. It was very family friendly with plates and cups that the kids could use too. We loved the view from the screened in porch of the pool, ocean and sunrises. Amazing! The bathrooms were updated and nice. Plenty of spots to hang up drying bathing suits in the bathrooms or on the balcony. Our days were spent biking, going to the pool and the beach. The beach and pool are in close proximity to the condo so it is a short walk back if you need forget something. There were always plenty of bikes available and the office had helmets. There were games and sand toys in the condo and the office had other items to check out if needed like movies or grilling tools. There were pool noodles and toys available at the pool as well so no need to bring as much. The rental staff was very easy to work with and the staff in the office at Shell Island Beach Club is very willing to offer up tips/suggestions or answer questions. Shell Island’s layout makes the property never feel crowded. Thank you for up keeping such a great condo to allow us to have the relaxing vacation we were looking to have! Highly recommend a trip on the Sanibel Thriller for a great dolphin experience."
