We love this side of the Island because it's less crowded. We found this place a few years ago and since then this is the only place we stay. It's so close to the beach and they have a great pool area. The condo we rent is always spotless and stock with every thing we would need as if we... More

We stayed in Unit 6A for 5 nights in early November. The property was rented through Select Vacation Properties of Sanibel Island. This was a last minute booking and was was arranged only 4 days prior to our arrival. Having never been to Sanibel Island previously, we were looking for a much needed respite in the form of sunshine, beach... More

This was our first time on Sanibel Island and SIBC has us officially hooked. The accommodations were up to the usual gold standard for a Hilton-associated property. Loved having a full sized washer and dryer in unit. Most timeshares we've stayed in have had the smaller stacked units. All of the staff were extremely helpful and kind. It was really... More

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
