Seashells on Sanibel is a lovely vacation rental. Recently redecorated, it is still a moderate price. We had #27 which is on second floor facing west. I'm retired and usually stay at upscale (more expensive) hotels, so I was very pleasantly surprised at the newly tiled floors in soft ocean beach colors. With those light greens and blues extending into...

The Sea Shells facility was cleverly designed to provide a reasonable degree of privacy and parking ease. Most of their neighbors are typical 3 story 'Cookie Cutter" type facilities with little to distinguish between them. Our unit, #2 was at the West Gulf side of the complex and offered easy access to main road and the beach. The unit was...

This place is absolutely amazing! Great rooms that have plenty of space for the entire family. Plenty of food and attractions all around. Will be back coming back here again and again. Short walk to the most beautiful beaches, where you can get shells galore.

We stayed in #39, and booked through VRBO for a week in Oct. 2016. Our unit was at the back of the complex, near the tennis courts, which made for a little longer walk to the beach, but not a problem. Our parking spot was right in front of the unit and was very convenient. Our place was a two...

Loved our stay at Sea Shells of Sanibel Condos. I was pleasantly surprised we stayed in unit 28 and I have to say the reviews from a year ago had me wondering but Shela assured me that it had a new owner and was fixed up! Yes it was such a lovely unit to stay in and I thank you...

The Seashells of Sanibel was a quiet, reclusive resort that was family friendly. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The location was remote yet close to Ding Darling and many wonderful Sanibel restaurants such as The Lazy Flaming and The Bubble Room.

We have stayed at Sea Shells of Sanibel 3 times in the last year and a half. The different condos have all been great! The short walk across the street and down the private path to the beach is easy to take all your beach items with you. All 3 condos offered beach chairs,cart, towels and all the kitchen items...

it's not directly on the beach but 5-15 minute walk along a pretty path is a small price to pay considering you will pay hundreds of dollars less to be across the street. It's a great value for our family. This is the 2nd time we have stayed here. The condo was in great condition. Hardwood floors and nice kitchen...

Sea Shells of Sanibel was a great choice for my husband and myself to celebrate our 35th anniversary. It was relatively cheap and had everything we needed there--sand cart,beach towels, full kitchen and great pool. The ladies at the office were very nice and answered all our questions--we met some condo owners at the pool and they were very welcoming....

Got a bit of a shock to be honest - the reviews were mostly good but there, down around page three, was our unit. And it wasn't good. Some of the complaints seemed to be just...
