Vacation Rental Testimonials

Patty and David D.

Patty and I have been dealing with Royal Shell well over 15 years. During this period of time we have always found the company and the personnel extremely profession and a real pleasure to work with. Our requests have always been answered in a prompt manner and with great satisfaction. No matter what the need Royal Shell has always attempted to provide us with top quality performance. The owners and the properties that they represent and provide are, in our opinion, five-star locations. Every year when we return it is like a home coming, seeing old faces, exchanging stories and reliving the past is a fun experience. As always, we can't wait for January to return so we can come back.

Pierre and Susan T.

Many Thanks! You have exceeded our expectations. Thanks for a great job this season!

A Happy Guest

My parents have been coming to Naples for 20 years. You are by far the most outstanding real-estate professional they have worked with in all that time! Thanks again for all.

Patty C.

We have enjoyed Royal Shell's Sanibel vacation rentals for many years. Every home has been neat and clean, well furnished, and well maintained. Any time we have had an issue, Royal Shell's service team has always responded quickly and taken care of the problem. We highly recommend Royal Shell.

Paul D.

We have been coming to Sanibel and renting through Royal Shell for 12 years. We have never had a problem and the staff has always been pleasant and efficient. Upon arrival several years ago, the power on the island went out. To our surprise, in a very short time, a representative of Royal Shell was at our door with flashlights to help with the darkness. Now that is going the extra mile. Any minor repairs that occur have also been handled quickly. We look forward to working with Royal Shell every year and know that our needs will be taken care of in a friendly, professional manner.

Jerome L.

We have received very exceptional service throughout the ten years plus that we have been using Royal Shell. That includes booking, the personnel in office that greets me with a smile and a warm welcome. Any issues are addressed right away. I love the cookies and the paper provide every day too. I can go on and on

Evelyn A.

I've been using Royal Shell for many, many years. And as a repeat customer, I can say that every year that it's been handling rentals for me in Sanibel, Royal Shell has been my reliable partner. What a very efficient system it is. Each year, it's as simple as e-mailing and confirming my dates. Upon occasion more recently, I've wanted to change my usual location, and I must say it was a terrific move. Without any delay, you found an even better condo for me to rent, meeting and exceeding my wish list. We absolutely loved the new place, and plan to stay there again next May. As you know, we've already made arrangements for booking and deposit to ensure that will happen. Thanks for all your good work and help with this.

Nina & Walter D.

From our frying pan to our toaster and other endless requests, the service you provided us definitely surpassed the best. So, thank you so much for making our stay so great! And we have signed up again for next year on a similar date!
