Steps to beach! One of the best rates on the island!


Property Details

Updated: Jun 29, 2016
Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 6 Sleeps

Steps to the beach and a great rate too! Three minutes after you leave our condo, Unit 14, you can be on the beautiful Sanibel beach where you can walk for miles searching for shells or other treasures from the ocean. We have just redecorated the condo with new wood floors and new furniture, and there are hd tv's in the living room, master bedroom and guest bedroom. Sea Shells of Sanibel, Unit 14, is one of the best values on Sanibel Island. The complex has a wonderful, large, heated pool, gas bbq grills, tennis court, shuffleboard, laundry facilities, bike rentals and an on-site management office with laundry facilities. All of the condos have cable tv and free wi-fi internet access. Unit 14 is conveniently located close to the beach access and also close to the pool, office, and other facilities.

It is a small quiet condominium complex, surrounded by nature preserve land, yet it is close to all of the wonderful activities and restaurants Sanibel has to offer. It has its own private beach access so you don't have to fight any crowds on the beach. Sea Shells condominiums are located on West Gulf Dr. about a mile from grocery stores, many delightful shops, great restaurants, and

the only movie theater on the island! It's also close to Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge, Bailey Matthews Shell Museum, Tarpon Bay kayaking, canoeing, and fishing, live theater, and two public island golf courses. The 23 mile island bike, skating, and walking trail is right in front of the complex. So many choices of what to do, if you can't make up your mind, just sit with a book on the beach, soak up the sun, and do nothing at all!

About the Owner

Our family has been coming to Sanibel Island for over 25 years. We have 3 grown daughters and they grew up coming to Sanibel every year. We are from central Illinois and that warm sunny beach and all the activities that Sanibel has to offer were perfect for our family for Spring Break. We know are semi-retired and get to come to Sanibel more often and stay longer. We fell in love with the island and the laid back atmosphere on the island. Once you cross over the causeway and get off the main road, you just take a big sigh and all the worries disappear! We love Sanibel and hope our guests will fall in love with it to!

We cooked all of our meals here in the condo. Thank you for having such a well-equipped kitchen. Thank you for allowing us to spend a week here - it was wonderful and relaxing. Can't wait to come back!

Great Place to visit!

  • 4 of 5

This unit is exactly as pictured on website. It's newly updated and decorated in a nice beach theme. This place was perfect for our family. The walk to the beach was not far and easy to find. The beach was very quiet. We really enjoyed staying at this place.

Fantastic condo! Great rate! Family loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We came down to Sanibel to escape from the winter with our two kids. This condo was very clean, very nicely decorated, and close to everything we needed. When we walked into the condo we felt like we were really at the beach; it was decorated so nicely and beachy! Because of our kids we ate in the condo most of the time and the kitchen had everything we needed. The Instant-view Net Flix was a lifesaver for us with the kids. The beach was a quick 5 minute walk and the condo had everything that we needed to take to the beach - toys for the kids, chairs for us, beach umbrellas, cooler, and a cart and wagon to take it all to the beach.

Loved: the beach and all its shells; The Bubble Room to eat at; all the bike trails; the beauty and tranquility of Sanibel

Sanibel Wonder

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on Christmas Day and check-in was flawless even though office was

closed. We were on the beach within a half hour of arriving in that it was sunny skies and we were excited. Short walk to beach.

Description on line was very accurate and the complex was very clean and well maintained. We particularly enjoyed availability of bike rental right at complex to aid us in biking the many bike trails on island.

We were able to walk to Sandbar restaurant right on same street for dinner 2 times. We also enjoyed Doc Fords and Green Flash restaurants. On Captiva, we rented jet skis and went parasailing. Staff was very accommodating at YOLO for the activities. Beach at Sanibel was full of shells and not crowded.

Sanibel offers a very natural, old Florida environment. You won't

find high rise buildings or any of the chain restaurants on the island. Our beach has the best sunsets on the island! Mother Nature has created a masterpiece of soft white sand, soothing gulf breezes and natural beautry. Enjoy miles of scenic bike trails that meander along the gulf and wind through wildlife habitat and quiet neighborhoods. Canoe or kayak unpoiled waterways, home to the endangered manatee and hundreds of varieties of birds. Splash and swim with the dolphins in the Gulf, gather shells along the beach or simply stretch out with a good book and relax. The island offers wonderful fishing and boating, if you'd rather be on top of the water. There are eco-tours to experience the mangroves and learn about the variety of sea life that surrounds Sanibel.

Here are some other ideas of things to do: bicycling on the 23 miles of trails, golfing, art galleries, fishing, chartering a sailboat or power boat, shopping at hundreds of speciality shops, live theater.

  • We have tried to make our condo meet your every need and desire. We have added Free Instant Netflix in our condo, so you can watch your favorite movie or specific tv show on one of our new hd tv's in the living room or either bedroom. Our two bedroom condo has been totally refurbished with casual, comfortable 'beachy' furnishings designed to make your stay relaxed and enjoyable. We have had new wood flooring installed, new furniture, and it was freshly painted. A king-sized bed in the master bedroom, two twins in the guestroom, and a sleeper sofa in the living room allow our condo to accommodate up to six people. We also have a roll-away bed and an air bed which will fit in either of the bedrooms. Both the bedrooms and living room have ceiling fans to help keep you cool in addition to the central air conditioning. Our open-plan kitchen, complete with custom cabinetry and granite countertops, is fully equipped should you decide to dine in. Our unit is one of the closest to the beach. We have beach chairs, towels, and an umbrella for you to take to that perfect spot on the beach. We have tried to think of everything to make your time on Sanibel as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Hopefully we have succeeded and you will be anxious to return again and again!
