My family and I just returned from a week stay at Sea Shells of Sanibel in unit 10. It is in the second building, not too far from the pool or beach access. I timed it one day and it took me 4 minutes to walk to the beach. The pictures on their website of the unit don't do it... More

Me and my best friend found this place last week of May, we decided to take our families to the beach for 4th of July. They were great since most of the condos will only rent for a whole week and not 3 nights. The condos were clean and with a lot of space. Bedrooms and bathrooms were huge. The... More

Our party of 15 stayed in 3 condo's here: numbers 22, 23 and 24. Each condo was comfortable, fairly well equipped and well placed for the pool, BBQ areas and laundry room. There is adequate parking facilities. The beach is a short walk away (across the road) and Sea Shells has it's own beach access. The pool was always fairly... More

This is one of the best places to stay on the Island. We always stay in unit 22. It is very close to the office, pool and grills. Very quiet area of Sanibel, close to the beach, close to local restaurants and attractions. I highly recommend this place for families, couples and singles.

I stayed three nights with elder parents, wife and baby. Two bedrooms and two bathrooms. You must walk 200 meters for beach access across the street. All the units are slightly different. We stayed in unit 9 on the ground level.The quality and thoughtfulness of the furnishings and decoration is apparent. The kitchen was fully outfitted. Everything we needed for... More

This is a nice local resort with a nice and quiet swimming pool. There are barbeque grills in the back of the pool - kept very well. Good location to reach other areas of the island. Mattress was not good in our room. Friendly staff.

We booked unit #36 only a few weeks before going on our vacation, we were lucky to get it due to a last minute cancellation. The pictures of the unit on vrbo.com are true to what the unit really looks like. Great living/dining areas and ample sized bedrooms nicely decorated in beachy themes. The main bathroom could use an update... More

I have stayed at Unit #21 four times now and every year something new is done to enhance the beauty and comfort of this lovely two bedroom condo. Every thing you need is provided-games, beach towels, cart, chairs, all kitchen utensils, bath towels, etc. It is on the second floor next to the pool/office location, no elevator however. For those... More

. We loved it! We stayed in unit 30. Seashells of Sanibel is very well kept, clean, quiet and has all the amenities you need for a wonderful beach vacation. The unit had beach chairs, umbrellas, beach toys, beach towels. The bedrooms are comfortable and well appointed and felt like home away from home! The location is great easy to... More
