About Ray Snowden

My wife and I had been coming here for over 25 years prior to purchasing our dream condo in the summer of 2009. We love this Island and it seems that our children and grandchildren will follow in our footsteps. We hope that you enjoy Sanibel as much as we do!

Ray Snowden purchased this condo in 2009

Why Ray Snowden chose Sanibel Island

We looked at a number of different properties, but Coquina 1-A attracted us for a variety of reasons. The complex is small, family oriented and has a lush tropical feel to it. Our unit is in building #1 directly facing the ocean with gulf views from every room! You have access to a private beach path directly from the door in the lanai that takes you to the beach in 30 seconds or less.... You are literally as close to the ocean as you can possibly get!!!! The beach goes on for miles and is simply beautiful! Please see our web site for more information found in the 'links to more information' section below.

What makes this condo unique

Quiet side of Island, but very close to shopping, bike paths, golf and great restaurants! In fact, some of those restaurants are within walking distance... For golfers, there are two nearby golf courses with one less than a minute away (see Satellite Map view and/or CB1-A's web page found under 'links to more information' below).

Guestbook comments from the owner

Ray & Kathy,

Just have to tell you how we've fallen in love with your condo, location, & the island! This is a beautiful condo & so well appointed. We lack for nothing! Thank you for letting us rent it. We are hearing from friends that our home in Fish Creek is currently getting 4-6" of heavy, wet snow. If you had availability, we'd stay another week! Thanks again. Jim & Pat

Wonderful Sanibel beachfront condo!

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from another amazing trip to Sanibel Island! This was our first time staying in Coquina Beach Condo 1A and we LOVED IT! The condo was immaculate (we are 'clean freaks') and didn't feel like we had to 'clean' before we unpacked. We were thrilled that we were able to unload our car and immediately head to the beach! The owners have thought of everything that you might need for your vacation trip and have gone to great care to make their condo absolutely perfect!! The location in the complex is 'the best'! You simply walk out your door, down a short path and you are on the beach. We spent alot of time on the lanai that has a great yet private view of the ocean. We also enjoyed the heated salt-water pool within the complex. Our check-in at Royal Shell Vacations was effortless. The owners even emailed me while we were on our trip to make sure everything was okay and to see if we needed anything. I was amazed! We have booked again for next year and plan to make it a yearly vacation trip to Coquina Beach 1A. Believe me, you will not be disappointed!!

Paradise Found

  • of 5

Waking up to daily beach walks with morning sunrises over the ocean, followed by breakfast on the lanai with views of the ever-changing ocean with its big sky- This is paradise! Bobbing in the gulf with dolphins joining in to play and pelican friends flying overhead. Relaxation from dawn to dusk is what you will find here. This home is exceptionally appointed, offering a well supplied kitchen (from Keurig to blender and modern appliances…), plentiful and quality beach equipment (from umbrellas to sturdy chairs), and comfy beds for a peaceful sleep. The home is welcoming and spotlessly clean. It is artistically and thoughtfully decorated and perfect for entertaining inside and out. It even offers a gas grill with utensils steps from the door. This home with its perfect location at the quiet end of the beach is also just a walk away from restaurants, shops and more. Pride of ownership and love for this special place is evident down to the tiniest detail. It doesn't get any better than this. We will be returning for our fourth year in a row next year. Paradise Found!

Our home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This is the 6th consecutive year that we stay in the same condo! A week in Sanibel has been a family tradition since my husband was young and now we have the opportunity to share this wonderful experience with our children. When we step foot into this cozy, beautifully-decorated, and well equipped condo, we NEVER want to leave. The updated kitchen has everything you can think of, the bedrooms are nicely decorated and very comfortable, and the living areas are stunning. Just what we would love if we had our own beach condo! Let's not forget the beautiful view of the ocean from the porch (thank goodness they trimmed the shrubs) and the sound of the waves crashing at night. It has a great location as well. The walk to the beach is very short and it actually feels like you have your very own private boardwalk, since not many people use the access that is right next to the condo. Days at the beach are relaxing and amazing. This year alone, we saw dolphins feeding on the shore, tarpon rolling, and found an endless number of sand dollars and starfish. I would recommend for anyone looking for the perfect vacation to stay in this condo, but I will not. This will make it impossible for us to get another week in our home away from home ;).

A Little Piece of Heaven!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved this condo!! Beautifully decorated and equiped with many items that normally are not available at other rental properties! My family loved the comfortable beds, linens and fabulous pillows! The owners provide beach towels, beach chairs and a fully equiped kitchen! The screened-in porch was fabulous and we loved waking up in the morning with a large window with a fabulous view of the sunrise and beach! The beach is great for shelling, bird watching and seeing dolphins! My two college age daughters loved the heated pool, laying out on the beach and the biking trails! Very relaxing vacation and perfect for families! Loved it!! We all did not want to leave! The weather was mid 70's-80's all week with plenty of sunshine! All four of us plan to return!

You Gotta Love This Place!

  • 5 of 5

Please see our previous reviews: "We Love This Place" and We Still Love This Place." We'll just add that each time that we spend a week in the condo, we love it even more. The owners continually update the condo and add to the amenities. It is more like our home away from home than a rental. We wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else in Sanibel.

An Oasis in God's Creation

  • 5 of 5

This condo has so many amenities that you will feel like you are at home AND so close to the indescribable beauty of the water, beach, shells, dolphins, sunrises and sunsets. I visited the web site many times before coming and yet the actual experience FAR exceeded our expectations. It is a very peaceful, quiet, and private setting and so close to the beach that you can go back and forth many times during the day. All the appliances in the kitchen enabled us to have some meals together at the condo. I especially liked being able to make a cup of coffee before proceeding to the beach for the sunrise. The washer and dryer are so nice to have so that we didn't have to pack so many clothes. All the beach equipment from chairs and towels to noodles and umbrellas enabled us to spend a lot time right at the beach and in the water! The lanai is my favorite spot...outside and yet protected from the bugs with the screens. No description can do justice to the beauty, cleanliness, and conveniences of this condo. You will have to come and experience it for yourself. Thank you Ray and Kathy for shaing this special place with our family.
