I stayed at the Shell Point Guest House for six nights. This is a guest house in a gated senior community. The rooms were very nice, the grounds were beautifully landscaped, the pool was awesome and most of the time it was empty. There were no refrigerators in the rooms but ice chests were available for use and worked just fine for beverages. The residents I encountered were very nice. I used the Cafe Restaurant for one breakfast & one lunch, food was good, freshly prepared & very reasonable. It's about a mile from the bridge over to Sanibel Island so it's not real convenient to a whole lot. It is convenient to Sanibel and Ft. Myers Beach. Great ice cream place nearby -- Love Boat Ice cream, made on site, lots of flavors and extremely reasonable. The only draw back was not having a computer convenient for flight checkin. The computer center is only open a couple of hours a day. I would definitely return and use it as accomodations for Sanibel. Even the $6 bridge toll still makes this place a great bargain.
