On a clear day you can see forever! That's what can be said about the Gulf front location of this 2 bedroom 2 bath unit. Kitchen newly remodeled September 2015.
You just can't get a better view on Sanibel than from this unit.
Island Beach Club is a 75 unit complex centrally located off West Gulf Drive. Other amenities include swimming and elevator

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 ants...you 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 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.
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.
