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....

Look before you leap, they say. And I usually do - but this time, I just leapt. Booked somewhere and then checked it out. 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...

We stayed in Unit #12. This unit was very well stocked with very comfortable beds & living room furniture. The kitchen has been updated and is lacking for nothing. The bathrooms however are in desperate need of updating. All in all, I would recommend this unit and complex.

The location of the beach and cleanliness of the outside property were fine. However, I stayed in condo number 11 and that condo was a disgrace. I knew not to expect to much because of the price we got fo the week. It came to a little less than a thousand dollars for the week. However, the furniture in this...

We stayed in Unit #36. It was ok. Unit was a good size, furniture adequate, decent bedding. The unit is in need of a good deep cleaning, corners were gritty and thick with dust. The complex itself was fairly nice, albeit a good walk to the beach access. The pool was lovely, the front desk gals were helpful and pleasant....

Seashells is the complete package for vacation rentals on Sanibel. With the beach just a short hop, skip & a jump across West Gulf Drive, a better, more relaxing location exists only in your imagination
