Our appartment was close to the beach. Nice view from the balcony. Well equiped appartment. We could not use the terass on the roof because of the heat during the day and the mosquitos during the evening. I think the owner should put an umbrella on the terass, so you can use it. The pool on this property isn't big.... More

My wife and I vacationed at SIBC for the first time in May '15 and love it! Just what we were looking for: small, quiet resort, beautiful grounds with native plants, very accommodating friendly staff, well maintained, and most importantly, the beach access! This is a nature lovers place from the walk to the beach on a sandy path to... More

Came with family for some R & R and this place delivered just that. Great location, peaceful near the lighthouse end of the island. We stayed in a 2-bedroom unit with full kitchen having all the necessary kitchen tools to cook for a big family if you're on a limited budget and order the home cooked food. Open floor plan... More

The Resort is located at the South end of Sanibel by the lighthouse. It was very quiet, clean, and had everything in it you would want for a beach vacation. The property managers were very friendly and helpful. Great recommendations for dinner! The beach was a less then 200 yard walk and plenty of space to set up an umbrella

SIBC is a wonderful place to rest, fish, lay by the beautiful pool, or just go for a walk. The units are fist class. This is not to be confused with SIBCII, which is next door. Similar facility but I have never stayed there. This on the lighthouse end of the island and much quieter and less vehicle traffic then... More

As a unit owner since 1980, I can tell you with certainty this resort is BETTER now than when new. Right on the gulf, beautiful pool, tennis courts, sauna, hot tub and a slew of amenities like free bikes, gas barbeque pits, beach towels, washer/dryer in unit, ice machine, etc. Without a doubt, one of the best resorts on the...

We just returned from a week at the Shell Island Beach Club, 2 adults and 2 kids. The staff were so friendly and helpful with suggestions on what to do during the week. Bikes were always available. The kids borrowed helmets for the week and we just borrowed the bikes whenever we wanted to go for a ride. Pool is... More

We stayed a week in a two bedroom/ two bath apartment that was clean, spacious and had a great beachy feel. The resort offered a huge pool, hot tub, tennis, beach access and free bikes that we used daily to check out the island (since traffic could be bad in some areas this was a great alternative). The beach was... More

Go here every year. It is a time when we can just relax. The wooden walkway to the beach makes for easy access to a fairly quiet piece of beach in front of the resort. Beach views are available from every unit. The pool is usually busy with a higher noise level, though that depends on the number of children... More
