What a wonderful condo! My husband and I stayed here for a month and enjoyed every minute of our stay. The owner, Pam, was a delight. She answered all our questions immediately. She is a pleasure! The location is ideal with a private, five-minute walk to the beach. No need to drive to be on the beautiful beaches of Sanibel. The kitchen is well-equipped and the condo is furnished in a comfortable and lovely way. There is more than ample closet space as well, which suited us as we don't travel lightly! It truly was the perfect vacation spot for us. We hope to return soon. Thank you, Seashells of Sanibel and Pam!
My son (who just graduated from college) and I stayed at this comfortable condo that was in a very desirable location, yet very affordable. Just as advertised, we were only a short walk to the beach which was right across the street via a well-groomed private access path. If you read up on Sanibel's beaches, you'll learn that Bowman's Beach is a favorite spot for shells, but we found the shells at the condo's beach to be better, and the shell washing station was a big plus! On Sanibel, all the ocean-side condos and homes are set far back, so once you're on the beach, there is lots of space and no overcrowding whatsoever. I read a lot about the Gulf side of Florida being calm, but we happily welcomed the sound of crashing waves every day. The Condo was clean and well-equipped with all we needed for the beach, cooking, and comfortable nights...the "start-up" supplies saved us $s, and especially appreciated were the trash bags, paper towels, toilet paper, dish, dishwasher & hand soaps, & kitchen sponge. Being January, it was not too hot during our stay, but when needed, the AC was very responsive. The layout of the condos made each unit very private and you are generally surrounded by well-maintained, lush tropical growth. As our host Pam wisely advised, Sanibel is very desirable for photographers. The condo is a very short drive to the J.N. Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge where my son, a professional photographer, took thousands of pictures while we cruised and explored their "Wildlife Drive"...well worth the $5 admission fee...we went every day except Fri when the drive is closed. Another short drive put us at the Reserve's Baily Tract where we hiked and got to see two alligators and lots of other wildlife. We also recommend any of the very affordable activities that the Reserve's "Tarpon Bay Explorers" has to offer...again, another short distance from the condo. The "Evening Cruise" was especially nice since you get to witness a sunset AND all the birds heading to the rookery islands to roost! We'd love to return for a whole week and next time do some biking instead of driving to get around...the sidewalks are all set far back from the road...very safe and flat, easy peddling! While planning our trip, we also considered Ft. Myers Beach. Pam offered some very honest feedback and she was spot on! We took a day trip to Lover's Key State Park, which was very beautiful, but after cruising down Ft Myers Beach, we were so glad we chose Sanibel...Thank You Pam!
A lovely, relaxing week on Sanibel with the perfect place to stay. My husband and I came to celebrate our tenth wedding anniversary. Seashells #36 is clean and comfortable and fully equipped for all your beach vacation needs, with a cooler, beach towels and chairs. The beach is a short walk away with Seashells' own private access. I love the screened lanai- it's a great place to relax with your morning coffee. The location was perfect for us. Quiet and restful yet a short drive to shops, Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, and Captiva where we went on a sunset sail. I stayed here on a ladies' get-away a couple years ago and and it was just as lovely this time. My husband and I would love to come again!
I actually did not rent this property because it was already booked for the dates I needed. However, the owner was very helpful anyway and provided me with information about other rental properties and a place to rent baby equipment. This was very much appreciated especially given her property was booked already. We would like to stay here for future trips. Although I cannot speak for property, the owner was very helpful and pleasant.
What a great vacation in a fantastic apartment. Great facilities. The apartment was well furnished, clean and tidy. We could have been nearer to the beach but didnt fancy paying the extra $750 a week for the priveledge!! The main restaurant and shopping areas are only a 5 minute car drive away at the most. Got some brilliant pictures of the Ospreys where the nest is right opposite the apartment window!! Sorry for breaking the coffee pot within the first hour of arriving.........Pat, the owner was very nice about it and refused my request to pay for a new one.......
Will definately be staying here again on our next holiday to Sanibel, my wife will be making the first pot of coffee on our next visit!! Gareth & Sarah. Isle of Man. UK.
My family had a terrific time at Sea Shells. Everything was just as decribed in the information. This complete complex is well manicured and user friendly and without a doubt we will be back. I have recommended to friends looking for reasonable, clean and adorable place to relax and enjoy one of most beautiful areas in Florida. Oh, and the fishing was just spectacular!!!
