Hurricane Ian

Attention Resort Owners and Guests

The Resort is closed until further notice due to extensive damage from Hurricane Ian on September 28, 2022. This will be a long recovery and we expect this closure to extend at least through all of 2023, possibly longer. Sanibel Beach Club Owners can access the Owner’s Corner protected section of the website for updates and photos as we move through this process.

Scam Alert

Attention Resort Owners and Guests

The SBC board and VRI management have recently been made aware of an organization contacting SBC owners to facilitate the sale of their weeks. The organization represented themselves as working, and in communication, with the Sanibel Beach Club and our management company VRI. That is completely false. SBC and VRI do not work with timeshare exit companies”.

While SBC is considered by some to be a “timeshare” resort, we are really an “interval ownership” resort. Owners are free to sell their weeks at their discretion. There is no parent company with whom you need to negotiate. While you are free to sell your weeks on your own, SBC management can handle the transaction and you receive the full sale amount. You are in control!

We have learned that part of the exit company’s pitch is to “determine how much equity the developer would allow”. This is completely irrelevant since there is no developer and as an owner, you have 100% equity in your weeks.

Ivan Miralla is a Florida licensed real estate sales agent who has been approved by the Board of Directors to facilitate the resale program for the Sanibel Beach Club. Owners are free to sell their weeks at their discretion, but we are here to help if you so desire.

Please email with any questions regarding sales of unit weeks at SBC.

Your Board of Directors is committed to getting the resort open as soon as possible. Keep in mind that we will have a brand new resort to enjoy when the reconstruction is complete. If you enjoyed SBC before, it will be even better!
