This is on the top living level. The views are simply spectacular. There is no elevator in the building. Shell Island Beach Club 6C is an island resort overlooking the sandy beach and Gulf of Mexico complete with Heated pool, Jacuzzi, Sauna and Tennis courts.

Direct beach access and just a short walk away from Sanibel's famous lighthouse and fishing pier on the east-end of the island.

This top-floor, two bedroom/two bath condo is a direct gulf front unit with great breathtaking views of the Gulf of Mexico and Fort Myers Beach. You can comfortably sleep six people. Vaulted ceilings and new furniture add to the relaxing, spacious atmosphere.

The master bedroom suite has a whirlpool bathtub and separate shower; both bedrooms and the living room have TV with VCR/DVD Players. (Shell Island offers a library of video rentals). The screened-in lanai is a delightful place for breakfast or evening drinks while overlooking the water.

Why Raquel Toussaint chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

This is one of our favorite complexes on the island ,we love the sparkling clean outdoor hot tub and sauna. This one of a few resorts on the island that has these amenities. The double size heated pool is always sparking. There are so many lounge chairs you won't have to fight for a chair poolside.

What makes this condo unique

The office will bring luggage up to unit. There are free use bikes which is over a 50.00 dollar savings per bike if you were to rent.The Grilling area is great!

Revisted this Great Condo!!

  • 5 of 5

It took us two years to get back to Sanibel and this great unit. We could only stay for a week but the weather and the island is still a wonderful place to see. We will return as soon as possible.

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!
