Fun time share exchange. Nicely appointed 2 Bedroom/2 bath 2 story unit with screened in balcony porch overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. A super pool, a gorgeous beach and lots of shelling abounds! Coming over the bridge from Fort Meyers is like driving into a slice of heaven!

Staying at Casa Ybel is such a treat! It is so well groomed and pleasant! Wonderful to stay in a resort that has laundry in many of its units. The gulf view is breathtaking! We even saw an alligator sunning itself on the little island in the pond.

We were extremely pleased with our stay at Casa Ybel. The setting is relaxed and flowing. The rooms all face the water with stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean. The facilities were in great shape, we enjoyed playing tennis every day, lounging by the pool and beach. When we went in April there were a lot of flys on the...

Positives: Right on a beautiful beach; not a huge place (at least that's a positive from my point of view); the property manager seemed nice enough when we checked out.

Every room has a view of the Gulf of Mexico. You can enjoy the sunrise as well as the sunset from the beach. The island sets east and west making this possible. Also this is one of the best shelling beaches in the world. There are free laundry services in each of the buildings. The pool is large for those...
