Destinations To Paradise

Sanibel and Captiva Islands are both popular vacation destinations in southwest Florida. Together they are also known as the “Shelling Capital of the U.S.” Both towns are set in idyllic tropical settings, and they are very different. Captiva will make you feel like you’ve stepped back in time 50 years. You won’t even feel like you’re in Florida anymore. It’s more reminiscent of the Caribbean. Sanibel is known for its beaches, nature preserves and “Island lifestyle.” On Sanibel, it’s all about getting on “Island Time.”

Royal Shell also offers vacation rentals in Bonita Springs, Cape Coral, Estero, Fort Myers, Fort Myers Beach and Naples. Enjoy the nightlife in Fort Myers or on Fort Myers Beach. Stay in Naples and experience its high-end restaurants, art district and fancy boutiques. Or take a family trip to Bonita Springs and Cape Coral and explore the area’s canals and waterpark.

If you want to check out the springs of Central Florida, ride horses or play a round of golf at Golden Ocala, Royal Shell has a variety of vacation rentals in Ocala. If you’re a golf enthusiast, Golden Ocala’s PGA golf staff can help you plan a golf outing with competitive tournaments and prizes. The Ocala National Forest is also nearby and it’s one of the area’s biggest attractions.

If you’re itching to see mountain ranges, hangout with friends and family around a campfire, and see the fall leafs change colors, we recommend a cabin rental in North Carolina.
