Chez Shells is nestled within an enclosure of mature palms, with grounds that have been landscaped for privacy, and pleasure. Its West Gulf Drive location is enhanced by easy access to all the shopping and dining that Sanibel and Captiva have to offer, plus close access to the incomparable J.N.

The great room is the heart of the house, with a vaulted ceiling and sliding glass doors that open across the whole back of the house to a screened-in deck that overlooks the pool and landscaped area behind. This main room is filled with natural light, and custom designed up-lighting. With its crisp coastal decor, the living area can seat 8, with a comfortable sofa and overstuffed club chairs.
