After reading mixed reviews we weren't sure hat to expect and have been absolutely delighted by our week's vacation here. Apt 10 is lovely. Blue and white theme, very clean and well equipped including washing machine, drier. At the right end of the complex for easy beach access which was less than 5 min walk. Trolley with beach towels, chairs,...

My daughter and I visited Sanibel on 7/18/15 until 7/25/15. This was her high school graduation present. It was also our very first flight together. Sanibel is such a beautiful and special place. I highly recommend visiting here. We stayed at Unit 36. It was very nice and clean. Everything you needed was there. The beach chairs and umbrella were...

We had unit 3 and it was great for our family. The unit had everything that we needed to stay home and cook and to go to the beach and have a good time. One thing that i would change is the path going to the beach. It's a bit run down and could be clearer. The pool is a...

This is our third year staying at Seashells for our family vacation. Our condo had everything we needed to feel like we were at home. Several sets of sheets, towels, blankets, a fully equipped kitchen along with enough spices to dice up any meal you could dream up. The rooms and living areas were very clean when we arrived. We...

My family of 4 were really happy with unit 21. It was the perfect size for our needs and it had pretty much everything needed for a beach vacation, including beach towels, chairs,an umbrella, pool noodles, buckets and even some extra sunblock. There was a beach cart, but it was broken, we tried to use it, but it wasn't a...

Thank you for taking the time to write such a detailed review! We are glad to hear that it felt like a "home away from home." That is exactly what our goal as a business strives for! Unit 21 now has a new beach cart and we apologize that the former one was broken. As for the water being warm-...

First time to Sanibel and the price was great. We stayed in Unit #14 which has been updated and looks great. This unit is also close to the beach access. The unit was very spacious and nicely decorated with a beach theme. We really enjoyed our stay.

Been here many times. Can't wait to go again next year. Can't find somewhere cheaper to stay on island and only a 5 min walk to the beach. Rms are great, staff very friendly. Great restaurants to go to and cute little shops. Never disappoints.

We loved everything about our condo. We rode bikes daily, used the condo pool daily, enjoyed our cart to pull the floats and chairs to the beach, and loved the peaceful atmosphere at our condo:) The island is full of surprises and never ending things to do. There were wonderful shops, restaurants, a lighthouse, Captiva island, and many other wonderful...

We stayed in Unit #44. The unit is on the second floor of the condo, so if you have mobility problems you might want a ground floor apt. The management office, laundry, pool area were all sparkling clean and updated. You're not on the beach here folks, just be aware of the location and be ready for a hike to...

This condo is close to the beach, shopping and the nature preserve. Nice, but small pool. A great plus was being able to rent bikes on site for a reasonable cost. The condos are nicely decorated and clean. The screened in porches are very narrow, so hard for a group of people to sit in comfortably. We had to buy...
