Super nice condominium!!

  • 5 of 5
After being away from Sanibel for a long time, it was a very refreshing return, especially to this condo. The décor was professionally appointed bringing in the beach-like atmosphere that added to the overall ambiance. We will definitely return to this great vacation condo unit.
The SIBC management was extremely helpful in recommending dining and entertainment on the island. Bicycles were readily available at no charge to the resort visitors. Bike trails are easy to follow and offer a tropical self-guided tour of the island with quick stops for ice cream creations or your favorite beverage.
Of the many fine restaurants on Sanibel, we were happy to find some of our favorites still serving great fare. Recommended: Lighthouse Café for breakfast and Doc Ford's for a great dinner experience (killer shrimp!!). And don't forget Mucky Duck on Captiva - best sunsets anywhere. The Lazy Flamingo still owns a fantastic Chicken Caesar salad - strongly recommended any time of day or nite. And don't forget to say 'hello' to the birds at Jerry's.
Bring your sunscreen, flip-flops and beach attire as you practice your "Sanibel Stoop". Or, you can just relax at the pool or hot tub.
We'll be back next year....

Amazing Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
This is our second year at Shell Island Beach Club. The condo has a breathtaking view of the beach, pool, and the lighthouse. Pictures will not do justice for this amazing view. The condo was very clean and has a very comfortable master suite with a wonderful king bed and a nice big tub. The condo has been remodeled with very nice tile throughout the condo since our last visit. The kitchen is complete with all the appliances needed including a Keurig coffee maker. It was very nice spending the evening on the lanai together and walking down the beaches of Sanibel to enjoy the sunset. Breakfast at the Lighthouse café is just a short bike ride away. Dinner on Sanibel Island is always very enjoyable. Our favorite restaurant is Doc Fords; the Caribbean cuisine is the best on the island. For dessert, Sanibel crunch at Pinocchio’s ice cream is a must! The owners of this condo were very accommodating for our visit. Rent this condo and you will not be disappointed. Thanks for a great anniversary vacation. We will definitely be coming back to this unit.

So nice...a VRBO top choice!

  • 5 of 5
We had a GREAT time at this condo! Just perfect for the four of us, which included two teenage children. Nicely appointed kitchen, comfortable furniture, WONDERFUL view of the Gulf, very close to the beach, nice pool/hot tub, and more. A real plus is the availability of free bikes at the complex office...take an all-day trek and picnic to the Observation Tower in the "Ding" Darling Wildlife Refuge (about 19 miles). Walk to breakfast at the Lighthouse Cafe; drive to lunch at Cheeburger Cheeburger and al fresco dinner at Doc Ford's. Drive up to Captiva Island and enjoy one of the public beaches there. Owner Marita Toussaint is very flexible with fast response...makes this unit an A+ VRBO value!

Nicer than the description!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here for the week by myself and it was perfect for my solo vacation. There was enough room to comfortably fit four, a well stocked kitchen right down to a flashlight, an assortment of beach chairs and beach towels. The lanai has an unobstructed view of the gulf and the coastline of Ft. Myers Beach down to Naples. I watched dolphins play and feed right out in front of the complex, along with several osprey traveling back and forth over my building taking fish back to the nest. The mattress in the master was outstanding. I could hear the waves at night from my bed. The owners were responsive to my questions and very accommodating (I had no maintenance issues while I was there) and everything from booking the condo to leaving the morning of my flight home went easily and smoothly. I have stayed in many time share units, and although this property is in a time share complex (allowing the use of all the amenities), the personal touches and attention to details in this privately-owned condo made this a much nicer stay. Thank you, Don and Marita, for making my vacation so perfect!

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful, not cheesy condo right on a beautiful beach! Looked exactly like the pictures and was clean and beautifully decorated. Most things we needed were provided, i.e., coffee maker, blender, towels, etc. Shell Island Beach Club is a really great complex as well- beautiful pool and hot tub. We used the complementary bikes a bunch as there are extensive biking trails on the island. The owners were a little difficult to get a hold of and were not great at responding to all of our questions in our emails before our arrival, but were very nice and responsive once we arrived. I would not hesitate to stay there again!

I'm sorry this comment is so long overdue. We stayed in your condo in June 2009. It was fantastic and that doesn't do it justice! It had everything we could possible want or need and the location was wonderful. The condo was beautifully decorated, very clean and the pictures don't do it justice! I loved the quiet community and the fantastic view of the ocean was exactly what we wanted. My two daughter's loved their room and enjoyed the TV and the twin beds. My youngest daughter and I borrowed bikes at the office (which were provided for free!)and rode down to the ice cream shop near by - it was great! The owners were wonderful and assisted me over the phone, not only with my plans in Sanibel but also gave me good advice about a stop at Disney as well. They were so great! It truely was a vacation of a lifetime! I will rent this condo again and again and hope to come back to Sanibel for a 4th trip soon! Thank you for the wonderful memories!
