Steve and Diane Klick purchased this condo in 1995
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.
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.
We had another great vacation at this property. It has every comfort of home and it is very clean. We really appreciated the beach chairs and umbrella as well as the free bike rentals. I love the proximity to the beach and the pool. I would definitely recommend this property for a good vacation. The owners are wonderful to deal with. We can't wait to return again.
This was our first time renting this condo and it won't be the last. Steve and Diane are so great to deal with and have everything you need and more. Beautifully decorated very comfortable and VERY clean! Can't wait for next year!
After the worst winter in memory it was exactly what the doctor ordered . Excellent location,perfect condo ,great hosts. Looking forward to another great vacation on sanibel
My family and I (family of 4) stayed in this condo for a week in December. Diane and Steve were excellent to work with before we arrived - they ensured we could get into the condo even though we were arriving late in the evening and checked in on us soon after we arrived. Their home is beautiful and is one of the closest units to the beach and pool. The kitchen was fully equipped and there were plenty of toys for our young children. The furniture, bathrooms, and linens were all well kept and in great condition. My parents own a condo on this same property and kept raving about how great our rental was! If this unit is available, definitely rent it!
Loved waking up to an amazing Gulf view every morning, exploring the Lighthouse beach for treasures and wandering thru the beautiful native plantings on the property. The pool and hot tub were also favorite haunts. The condo was perfect for us with all comforts of home, and the island location ideal. As returning Sanibel visitors, it was everything we hoped for ... we had a wonderful vacation.
My husband and I could not have asked for a more perfect place to stay on Sanibel Island. We are in our mid 30's and were celebrating our wedding anniversary. This was my first time renting on Sanibel and I was so happy with this unit. I was pleasantly surprised to find a bottle of wine waiting for us when we arrived. The owners are so nice and helpful.
The main reasons we came to Sanibel was to go shelling and relax. This condo is perfect for both activities.
It is very close to the beach for great shelling, you can see the gulf from the balcony! There is also a shell wash station. We found so many great shells right outside on the condo beach; olives, lightning whelks, conchs, sand dollars, murexes, wendeltraps, etc. Just remember you CANNOT KEEP LIVE SHELLS. If you are interested in shelling check out local resident Pam's shelling blog at www.iloveshelling.com. I can't believe how fantastic the shelling was right outside the condo! We also found great shells on the walk to the lighthouse point.
We used the nice beach chairs and umbrella provided. They also have a cooler for use which was great.
The condo community is quiet and relaxed. We came during the low season and practically had the pool and hot tub to ourselves. The bike trail is right outside the condo and it was nice to have free bike rentals.
The condo is outfitted with everything you would need on your vacation; cookware, beach toys, beach towels, etc. The decor is very tasteful beach style. This unit was very clean and very comfortable. The king size bed was a huge plus! I also liked having a top floor unit. Great view!
Activities I would suggest:
Relaxing with chairs and umbrella on the beach
Take the Captiva Cruises Shelling Cruise to Cayo Costa (You can get a 50% coupon at the Chamber of Commerce)
Pinnochio's for Ice Cream (the Sanibel Crunch was my favorite)
Ding Darling Refuge (go at low tide to see more birds)
Cips for a nice dinner or good happy hour
Doc Fords has a great menu
Mucky Duck on Captiva for a drink and the sunset
I would highly recommend this unit. I cannot wait to return next year!
