Sanibel Surfside (unit 135) is a fine place to enjoy a Sanibel vacation. The complex is right on the beach, and well located to island amenities. Units are efficiet and functional. Price / value is fair for now. The vibe is more resident than tourist. Access to pool and grills is good. Tennis courts and yard are nice. People have... More

Great location, right as you come onto the island and right on the beach. A nice short walk to the beach. Unit is on the 2nd floor of a 3 floor building. There is an elevator. Unit is in the center section of the building, so the door is near the elevator. Unit has a private parking open garage space... More

Condo was right on beach. Great for shelling. Stayed on first floor level in an end unit. Very nice interior. Furnishings were in good condition. It had twl porches since it was an end unit. Pool was a good size and very clean. Maintenance personnel came by everyday to remove sand and debris from walkways and steps. It was in... More

We booked unit #125 through Kingfisher. The views & location were great. If you walk up and down the beach you will notice that Surfside is the closest complex to the beach than all their neighbors. The complex was quiet. The pool was nice and empty. There is a Holiday Inn next door with a pretty decent restaurant and bar... More

My family and I had the best trip we ever would have hoped for at Sanibel Surfside #122. Royal Shell manages is and the check in/out was easy as pie. They even had cold bottled water and fresh cookie to nibble on, which we loved after a morning of flying. The unit itself was impeccably clean and also the most... More

We stayed on the 3rd floor (really the 4th floor) in unit 135. What a view! As far as I can tell the Sanibel Surfside is the closest complex to the beach/ocean which is great if you don't want to haul your beach provisions 100 yards over a walkway to the sand and if you like falling asleep and waking...

If access to the beach and a wall to wall of the Gulf is what you're looking for, then look no further. We stayed in Unit 125, second floor. This two bedroom, two bath unit is fine for four adults. The unit is clean, well equipped and very quiet. Beach chairs are included. In the future, furniture and electronics should... More

This is our third year at Sanibel Surfside and the view never gets old! We stayed in #325. Third floor right on the water with a large screened lanai that opens to the master bedroom and the living room. The small complex is immaculate and has a great covered area with gas barbecues you'll end up using a lot. Nice... More

Sanibel Surfside is a small, well maintained condominium property steps from the beach at Sanibel Island. From unit 122 you can sit on the screened in porch and "people watch" as you enjoy your morning coffee, a nice lunch, or perhaps that afternoon glass of wine. The unit is nicely furnished, well maintained, and had one of the best stocked... More

This is a great property with ample parking and away from crowds. I loved our unit because it was about 60 steps from the beach. Unit was clean and well stocked. The location of the property is ideal. We booked thru Royal Shell, and they took care of everything to make our stay pleasant. Our kids enjoyed the beach each... More
