Sanibel Island is a barrier island located on the southwest coast of Florida just off Fort Myers. Sanibel Island is about 12 miles long and 4 miles wide and is famous for its shelling beaches. There are over 60 species of shells to be found on Sanibel beaches. Sanibel Island's unique geographical orientation, lying perpendicular to the mainland rather than the normal horizontal orientation makes the island act as a scoop as the Gulf of Mexico tides deposit shells along it's white sandy beaches. Sanibel consistently ranks as one of the best shelling beaches in the world. Sanibel Island is special in so many ways. 70% of the island is protected in wildlife preserves. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge offers an opportunity to drive, bike, or walk through the many habitats of the island. Sanibel Island also strives to keep Sanibel, Sanibel. There are no high rises or fast food chains to be found on this little gem. Sanibel Island does however greet it's guests with excellent experiences at dozens of locally owned eateries, groceries, bustling local businesses, and friendly residents. Sanibel is a shopper's delight with many boutique shops and galleries. Sanibel Island provides over 26 miles of bike trails and over 17 miles of beaches for walking, shelling, sunning, kite flying, and swimming. Other outdoor activities include tennis, golf, snorkeling, scuba diving, boating, sailing, waterskiing, windsurfing, and parasailing.

Why Carla Hansen chose Sanibel Island

Tarpon Beach Condominiums just felt like home. It is a small 30 property with direct Gulf views sitting on several acres of Gulf front property. Being on the corner we have all the light and openness we love. The lanai gives us an outdoor space to enjoy the sounds, sights and smell of the beach. Morning and Sunset beach walks are the absolute best. --a tradition for us and the beach is only a few steps away. A perfect place to relax and enjoy the nature abounding on the island.

The Condo was wonderful, well equipped and perfect for the 4 of us. The beach was incredible and we spent every morning before sunrise collecting shells. We would definitely return for another Sanibel vacation!

                                                                    Awesome vacation rental!

                                                                    My family thoroughly enjoyed our two weeks on Sanibel. The condo was even better in person than shown in the pictures. It was extremely clean, the beds were comfortable, the kitchen was well appointed (without a doubt the most completely equipped of any condo I have ever stayed in), the lanai was large and perfectly situated for taking in the beautiful sunsets, the location relative to everything on the island was ideal and the parking was extremely convenient. I could go on and on, but I will just say that I would not have changed anything!

                                                                    Owner's Response:

A phenomenal location on the island, just a short stroll to the beach, close to restaurants and stores, the beach was not crowded at all, and the shells.....unbelievable. I had to buy a carry-on for the big horse conchs we found! The only down side was we had to leave!! My daughter stated "Best beach vacation EVER Dad"....we will definitely be back next year. Thanks so much Carla for sharing this gem with us.

                                                                    Owner's Response:

                                                                    The unit was exceptionally clean and well maintained. Royal Shell was most helpful/responsive to our contacts. Tarpon Beach was very well located for us, this being our first visit to the area and played a large part in our favorable feelings. Unfortunately we likely will not stay there next year as we will be needing three bedrooms but we do highly recommend it.

                                                                    Owner's Response:

The photos are accurate, showing the overall appearance. The owner was extremely helpful in answering all my questions. We would recommend this property to friends and relatives. Thank you Carla, and thank you Royal Shell.

                                                                    Sanibel Island is a barrier island just off the southwest coast of Florida by Fort Myers. Sanibel is about 12 miles long and 4 miles wide, and is known around the world for its fabulous shelling beaches. Due to Sanibel Island's unique geographical orientation, lying East to West instead of North to South, it acts as a scoop and gathers seashells along its beaches. Throughout the year, thousands of visitors come to enjoy Sanibel's beaches and hunt for that special seashell. Sanibel has an average temperature of about 75 degrees. While Sanibel Island is a wildlife refuge in and of itself, over 60% of the island is protected wildlife preserves. There are over 26 miles of bike trails and over 17 miles of beautiful beaches for great walking, shelling, sunning and swimming.
