Coquina Beach is a Sanibel 40-unit, Gulf-front complex with tennis, pool, picnic area, and barbecue grills. This unit features two bedrooms plus a spiral staircase to the second-floor loft.
Coquina Beach is centrally located on Middle Gulf Drive. Just a short drive to your favorite Sanibel locations such as Sanibel's historic lighthouse, art galleries, golf courses, fine or casual dining, and shopping.
Long considered a mecca for shell collectors, Sanibel is also known for its wildlife. Two thirds of Sanibel is part of the Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge with its lagoons, exotic tropical plants, alligators, manatee's, and a wide variety of birds.
And, the populated areas of the island are quite different from what you will find elsewhere in Florida. There are no traffic lights or neon signs on Sanibel. Come to Sanibel to truly get away from it all.
We were so excited to stay at this complex. We love the west coast of Florida and choose to stay there every year. Unfortunately, we booked this condo. I have never written a review before, but I felt if it was me looking, I would want to know about the conditions. We didn't care that the furniture was dated, we didn't care the decorations were from the 80's, We are there to go to the beach and have fun. However, the floors were so disgustingly dirty, I required my family to wear their shoes at all times. We called the management company twice and even emailed the owner. The management company said they would send someone out, but if they came out when we were out, we couldn't tell. We met lots of nice people and another mom was commenting to me her floors were disgusting too. I'm guessing they all use the same cleaning service. Also, the cookware was dated and dangerous. The teflon was flaking off of the frying pans. The drains in the master bathroom sink and shower would not drain. Nothing like going to beach and coming back to take a shower and then be covered in sand again up to your ankles because the drain is backed up. I gave the place two stars not because of the condo, but because of the location. If you care about having a clean place with a functional proper kitchen and bathrooms that actually work properly, do not stay here.
Second time we have stayed here. Beautiful place. A short walk to beach. Didn't want to leave!
Great winter getaway for our family of 6!! Very short walk to the beach where we enjoyed time in the sun and water as well as looking for sea shells. Close enough too to just run back in for food, drinks, bathroom. Condo was clean and well kept. Having sleeping accommodations for six with the loft was nice for being able to spread out. Plenty to do locally, and great restaurants. We would love to go back again another year and would definitely stay at this condo.
Condo was great very roomy and well maintained.love the pool and the beach can't wait to come back for more shells.
The condo was clean and comfortable, but somewhat worn. Several kitchen drawers were broken and lighting was poor. The pool area was beautiful and a nice place to sit. Proximity to the beach was great. Someone in another unit close by was smoking cigars and we could not use the deck /porch area often because of the overwhelming smell of cigar smoke. Parking was tight, and someone had barking dogs that they left alone for long periods of time. We had a relaxing vacation but would probable choose a different place to stay if we returned.
Perfect location within a few steps of the beach. Near grocery stores and restaurants. Plenty of room to stretch out with everything you need in the kitchen. Washer and dryer in condo a big plus.
