What a beautiful property and great operation. The staff at check-in were very friendly and get your vacation off to a great start. The unit is clean, spacious and very well appointed. Nice little porch too with plenty of room for two for dinner. The landscaping is native to the island and interesting to look and learn about on the... More

The excellence starts when you check in. We were greeted like family (maybe even better than that) and were given a briefing on the resort. Our room is wonderful! We are on the upper floor looking over the dunes to the beach. We can see great sunrises and we hear the surf from our room. Our room was very well... More

My family vacationed here a few weeks ago and had a great time. Located at the eastern end of Sanibel Island near the lighthouse, the Shell Island Beach Club is a great choice if you're looking to enjoy quality time on a quiet beach with fantastic shelling, a relaxing time at the pool or hot tub or even a game...

We ended up trading our time share in Orlando for a week here on Sanibel Island. This is a great spot and well maintained resort and we would definitely come back here again. First off, the units here are well appointed and maintained. We had a 2 bedroom unit where the Master had a king bed and the guess had... More

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!

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
