Great stay

  • 3 of 5

My family of four stayed in this unit in June 2012 and had no serious issues. Yes, it could use some updating, especially a coat of paint, but it was clean, everything was in working order and there were plenty of cooking supplies. The view was amazing and windows were clean enough to enjoy it. Beach is just steps away and was never crowded. The water is shallow a long waysout ... great for kids. There were some beach chairs and beach umbrellas in the unit. Nice big clean pool that was practically deserted our entire stay. We enjoyed P1D very much. The only complaint I had was regarding the cannot leave ANY unsealed food on the kitchen counter or they will find it. However, apparently the ants are a problem all over the island, so wherever you book, you might want to ask about it. HIGHLY recommend an excursion to Cayo Costa State Park.

We agree - Stay away

We just returned from Sanibel yesterday and have been trying to figure out what to say for our review of this unit. We just read the previous review and we couldn't agree more. We experienced the same things and are surprised given the previous review and response many of the items weren't addressed before we arrived. We also arrived to the unit and found the shower head dangling in the guest bathroom. The dishwasher was rusted out on the inside and when we ran the dishwasher our dishes had rust specks all over them and we had to wash dishes by hand. We called VIP and they were very responsive. The dishwasher was immediately replaced and the shower head fixed. We have to respond to the manager's response of the previous review and say, we did not pay a high price to stay in this unit for one week to spend our week dealing with simple maintenance issues. All of us REALLY had trouble turning on and off the master bath's sink faucet. However, when we mentioned this item it was not replaced. It needs to be replaced! The view from this unit is spectacular! However, the grimy dirty windows prevents truly enjoying it to its fullest. It really isn't too much to ask to have clean windows for this rental price.....We agree IBC is a great condo complex! We hope to rent another unit at IBC next year. As far as P1D we think the owner is not adequately maintaing their unit and know they are charging just as much as owners who are providing an updated unit and a better overall experience. We would recommend VIP not include this unit in their portfolio of condos to rent until the owner invests some money in updating the unit as it reflects poorly on VIP. Even the replaced dishwasher was one of the cheapest models on the market. We agree with the previous reviewer "stay away" from this unit until some changes are made.

Stay Away

  • 1 of 5

Extremely disappointed. Not our first trip to Island Beach Club. We have stayed at other units in building C and have been extremely satisfied. This unit is in NEED of a maintenance person. Master bedroom bath, back of door is peeling. Bath handle fell off, ( we put it back on). Guest bath, shower head dangling straight down. Hard to use.

KITCHEN is dismal at best. One fry pan, few utensils, NO BROILER PAN or pan to use to broil. Had to saute our shrimp and pan fry our steak. Front door inside has a chain lock that I can't even explain how it works. BEAUTIFUL VIEW, BUT VERY WORN OUT. Beach equipment in non existent. If updated, this unit would be a dream.

Owner's Response: David L Schuldenfrei, General Manager at VIP Vacation Rentals, responded to this review The management would like to thank this reviewer for their kind words and positive review about the Island Beach Club complex as a whole. Repeat guests, in this case a multi year veteran, are most valued and say a lot about the experience of staying at Island Beach Club. It is not unusual to be sitting with a group of guests at the pool and find out that many of them have been coming down regularly with their families for years, even decades! The vast majority of vacation rental properties on Sanibel, and Island Beach club are an upscale residential property where each unit is individually owned and maintained. This can lead to a wide variance in décor, amenities and upkeep/updating. By far, most of the feedback we receive about the units are positive as further evidenced by the majority of great reviews here on VRBO. Recognizing that in this case the expectations of this guest were clearly not met, we remind potential visitors to be very specific with owners and/or rental agencies about their expectations and needs. Ask a lot of questions and if needed request recent photos confirming the appearance and condition of the specific unit you are considering. Popular rental units in a seaside climate take a lot of abuse by the elements as well as wear & tear and it takes a lot of diligence to keep everything in top shape, even in 5-Star properties. It should lastly be noted that it is our understanding that the owner had not had any complaints about the unit condition from prior guests. Had this guest called our office with their complaints we would have offered to have someone come over immediately to fix or replace any problems or issues. We never heard from the guest. VIP Vacation Rentals is here for our guests and responds immediately to all complaints and issues. If a guest waits until they leave to mention issues to us there is not much we can do for them at that late date. We hope that our veteran guest will enjoy many future years at Island Beach Club and we thank them again for the positive feedback about the property in general. Sincerely, David L Schuldenfrei General Manager VIP Vacation Rentals
