We had a time share for a week here and I loved it from the moment we walked in through the door. The beds were incredibly comfortable, best sleep I've had in a long time.The patio was enclosed so you didn't have to worry about the bugs at night.

We own a week of timeshare at this location and have gone year after year for many years. We love the location - near the lighthouse end of Sanibel Island. The units are well decorated and well furnished. We enjoy the convenience of having a washer and dryer in the condo. Amenities are perfect. We always have a terrific time!

we traded our Hilton Grand Vacations Club week for this affiliated vacation spot. It was clean and nice and extremely convenient to the beach . We enjoyed the quiet beach everyday. The place provided 2 beach chairs and had towels for rent(free when returned clean/money refunded). They also rented an umbrella and 2 more chairs. The only thing we missed... More

At the end of the island, near the lighthouse, this was hands-down the best location to stay in Sanibel! We had a beach front view. The pool was amazing with plenty of toys for the kids. Walking distance from the beach, the resort also had chairs and towels for free with a small deposit. Beach umbrellas were also available for... More

Parents of my good friend own two time shares here and they invited us to stay in one last week. This was my first time visiting Sanibel Island as well. I absolutely fell in love with the island. Shell Island Beach Club was beautiful inside and out. Gorgeous grounds and pool, just steps from the ocean. The condo unit was... More

At the east end of Sanibel Island is a peaceful and relaxing resort. The new interior furnishings are great with soft greens and yellows. The pool often gets crowded early. Some people hog the chairs early. They also offer free bike rentals. Not the most comfortable ride but enough to get around and see some sights. Overall a great place... More

After driving from the mainland over the causeway, turn left onto Periwinkle -- you've immediately left the main flow of traffic (which turns to the right). Near the end of Periwinkle, tucked away on the south beach, is Shell Island Beach Club. It's a fine place, if you enjoy quiet, and little or no traffic (great for walks and bike... More
