Location is excellent. Beautiful view of ocean and beach from screened in balcony. Within walking distance of Lighthouse Cafe, excellent lunch and breakfast. Easy walk to beach on boardwalk with a place to rinse off your feet. Beach is great, especially at low tide. Great shells. Sandbar fun to walk out to.
Unit is clean and somewhat dated. Kitchen is well stocked. My family of five slept comfortably: two adults on master queen, two kids in second bedroom in singles, and my son on pull out couch, which is not very comfortable but tolerable. Master shower is very large and fun for two people. AC works fine. Bike rentals were free and available, although about half the bikes were in disrepair, so you have to choose carefully. There is a shuffleboard court on the way to the pool. This was the nicest shuffleboard court I've ever played on and was a great surprise. The pool also surpassed my expectations, it is very large, heated, temperature was perfect, very clean, and lounge chairs were abundant and comfortable. The unit is on the 3rd floor so you have to be in shape to keep walking up and down the stairs, but it's good exercise. Unit is completely quiet at night. Slept great. Sand toys for kids in the unit. Overall this rental surpassed my expectations and was an excellent value.
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.
My wife and I stayed at this unit. The view from the master bedroom in the morning is fantastic. The master bathroom is updated with a large shower. The unit is clean and well maintained. The screened in porch was great to sit on and have a cup of coffee in the morning. The pool was super clean and well maintained.
There are more than enough chairs at the pool. There are bikes right outside for easy use that come with the
complex. Just walk out hop on a bike and off you go. The island has great bike paths. The on site management company is helpful and friendly and will answer any question you have. The beach is right outside your door. I have been vacationing on Sanibel for 30 years, as an owner for most of those years,
now as a renter I would rent this unit again. From the location to the views what more can you ask for.
Hope to be back real soon.
We have just returned home from a fantastic week in Sanibel staying in this unit at Shell Island Beach Club.
The photos are an exact depiction of what you can expect…the ocean view puts you in vacation mode immediately! The vaulted ceiling really adds to the spacious and bright feel of the condo. All rooms are a good size and the beds and sofas are all very comfy. There are no photos of the bathrooms but they are both very nice and up to date. Each bathroom has a hair dryer.
My little girl loved the guest bedroom with its fish theme and the Winnie The Pooh sitting cushions. We also rented 2 playpens from the office for $10 each for the week, which was great.
The screened in balcony is awesome. You can sit and/or play out there and not worry about bugs (or children sticking themselves or anything else through the railings). There is also a stand out there to hang all your beachwear to dry which was a very useful addition.
The kitchen has pretty much anything you would need. There are lots of plastic bowls and plates if you have kids in tow.
The grounds are lovely and well taken care of. Everything is very clean.
This condo is very well located. It is steps to the pool and just past the pool is the short boardwalk to the beach. We had 2 little ones with us so the close proximity was great. The pool is such a nice temperature. There is a bin that has lots of pool noodles and larger sized pails and shovels and a few nets. We mostly ended up using that stuff instead of all the beach paraphernalia that I rammed into our suitcase.
We went out for bike rides a couple of times. There are lots of bikes and helmets are available through the office and a few bikes with child seats on the back.
There is a nice covered park at the other end of town and we tried out The Island Cow restaurant which was a casual, well priced, easy place to eat.
We also went on a dolphin watching boat tour in Captiva which was so much fun.
On our last 2 evenings there we had the awesome experience of exploring the ocean floor during low tide (the office can give you a chart for that). I have never done that before and it was the coolest thing ever. If you have not ever done that, do it!! We saw so many sand dollars as well as a few starfish and all other kinds of sea creatures moving around trying to burrow themselves into the wet sand waiting for the tide to come back in.
All in all we had a fantastic time and would certainly recommend this resort and unit!
This was the getaway my wife, daughter, and I were looking for! With this condo we got everything we expected and more. When we first arrived we picked up our keys at Sanibel Holiday, the property management company, and they were very welcoming. They told us all they details about our accommodations and gave us a packet full of useful information, tips, and things to do on the island. We were impressed by their service when we called about a clogged shower drain. It was no big deal and they came right out and fixed the clog in no time while we were out enjoying the beach.
Most of the other condos at this complex are timeshares and their property management is taken care of on-site at the shell island front office. Despite this VRBO condo using a different property management company off-site, the front office treated us just the same and helped us with dinner options, pool towels, and getting our bikes setup. They even provide helmets and have bikes with child seats which was a blast. We rented a crib and high-chair from an island company but we found out that the office at shell island has them for rent for a nominal fee.
The pool and hot tub area seemed recently updated and was awesome! The views from the balcony are amazing over looking the pool, beach, and gulf. The only downside to the amazing view are the stairs going up to the condo could be a lot for someone who can not handle stairs well. The beach out front was amazing for shelling. We always went during low tide and found many great vacant shells and many live creatures that were fun to look at including dozens of live sand dollars, many starfish, crabs, hermit crabs, horseshoe crabs, conch shells, and dolphins just beyond the last sand bar.
Our favorite restaurant was Cip's Place which has a good happy hour, the best service we encountered, and hasnice outdoor seating. One word of caution for those of you that like to be connected, the Wifi works but was slow.
This was an amazing vacation! We enjoyed everything about the unit and condo area. The shells we found were amazing and we just loved the shell washing station! The pool was always relaxing - not too hot, not too cold. We REALLY got use out of the hot-tub and enjoyed that it was open dawn to dusk. The bike rentals were really a treat and so much fun. We even got out and played some tennis, which the kids enjoyed. We were surprised as how many towels/linens and extra pillows/blankets were available. Plenty for 6 of us!! The kitchen had just about everything you would need to cook and live in a normal house setting. Thanks for an awesome time!! Already planning when we can go back. Just lovely and amazing!!
