Great time!

  • 4 of 5

Sanibel has a lot to offer and a view of the Gulf from your room is one that is wonderful! I found the property to be as stated. Very comfortable for our weeks stay! The door lock was temperamental and probably should be replaced. The location is perfect and I would consider staying there again! Shell On Sanibel!

At this price point I expected the condo to be in much better condition. Starting with the front screen/storm door which needs replacing and the door frame painted. The kitchen stove is a mess, the faucet needs replacing, the kitchen is not well stocked with essentials. The living room TV needs replacing, the picture being very soft. Premium cable channels would be nice, with a DVR.

The condo association needs an on-site representative who will go and knock on someone's door when they are smoking. Royal Shell gave the people a call but they just continued to smoke on the lanai. Ruined my favorite activity, sitting/dining on my lanai looking at the surf. All that money for beach front and I had to go inside and close my doors. This is not the first time this has happened here.

60 steps from the elevator to the sand

  • 4 of 5

SSF Property is very well maintained. Only cons: Kitchen could use new/more cooking ware. Royal Shell did not have the room ready by 3pm.

Great view of Middle Gulf beach and nice accomodations for our family's week stay. Definitely would stay again.

Sanibel Surfside - beautifully cared for complex on the beach

  • 5 of 5

Unit 126 has a full screened lanai across the unit's master bedroom and living room side of the condo, allowing the full flavor of the beach to be yours rain or shine before you ever go down to get sand between your toes and pick up a shell. There's an elevator to carry your luggage and groceries, otherwise take the stairs close by. This is a well-loved and cared for unit. The master bedroom has an en suite bath with tub/shower and linen closet, walk-in closet, king bed, sliding glass doors onto the lanai. Second bedroom with twin beds is small and tucked in on the non-beach side of the condo, with shower bathroom across the hall. Kitchen is fully equipped with sink/dishwasher counter with stools open to the dining room/living room. Large dining room table, nice firm queen sofa sleeper, cable TV in bedrooms and living room. Stacked washer and dryer in entry hall 'closet'. Strong and steady secure Wifi. Lovely pool and tennis court and gas grills available to renters. Club house is for unit owners. One assigned numbered parking space, but plenty of space for visitors. We were 6 adult women with 2 cars - plenty of room in the condo as well as the parking lot. There are recycle bins - good for them. On the beach just off Middle Gulf. Easy drive or bike ride to Periwinkle restaurants and shopping. 2-mile beach walk to the lighthouse. A few things need spiffing up - the front door lock/handle and the drains in the bathrooms. No beach equipment is available for this unit, so you'll need to buy/rent your beach chairs, umbrella, etc. Royal Shell Vacations manages the unit and are very responsive to inquiries/issues unit and island wise. Thanks for a great stay on the island.

Perfect location and view

  • 4 of 5

Couldn't have asked for a better location on the island and the view was stunning. The unit was clean and had all the comforts of home. Ground floor storage with all the beach gear was a nice surprise, and kept the extra sand out of the unit. Finicky TV in the master and difficult door locks were the only negatives. The grounds were exceptionally maintained and the whole family thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
