The Beach Shell Inn on Fort Myers Beach proved to be exactly as most other reviews had described: just steps from the beach, clean, comfortable, and perfect for a family getaway. We stayed for a week in their 2 bedroom apartment with my 1-1/2 year old grandson and his parents. The place was flawlessly clean and well stocked with all the little things necessary for a laid-back beach vacation. We had views of the gulf and the well-kept pool area and were located across the street from a small supermarket. The Beach Shell Inn is within walking distance of several decent restaurants and is efficiently managed by its owner, Cheryl, who serves as concierge giving directions and great recommendations. All in all, this jewel of a place was just what we hoped it would be!
