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

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

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.

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).

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

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.

DON'T STAY HERE!

Don't stay here!
  • 5 of 5
If you don't stay here then I will have more opportunity to stay when I want, I would live here year round if I could. This condo is amazing. The pictures show just what you will come too. In fact there are more ammenities than I expected. There is quite a library of DVD's, the screened in porch to look at the gulf and beach. Would like it if they cut back or trimmed down the brush between the condo and the beach so as not to obstruct the view but still great. My wife and I have stayed in beach front condos all over the world and will definitely go back and will probably make this a yearly trek.You do not need to take beach chairs and umbrellas and such as there is ample supply awaiting you in the condo. For a recommendation of a restaurant I would suggest Traders. That was great too.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the wonderful comments and five star review! We are continually trying to update and enhance the unit! As far as the trimming between the condo and beach, Sanibel and the conservation folks control all of that, but have recently eased restrictions on trimming. I believe The vegetation was trimmed the following week, but going forward in 2013 they have allowed more flexibility that should prevent overgrowth. Anyway, thanks again for the wonderful review and we look forward to having you back to CB1-A!

BEAUTIFUL CONDO

  • 5 of 5
A wonderful property., above and beyond expectations. This property is exactly as described and pictured. Everything was in excellent condition and the amenities were wonderful. The owners have thought of all the necessities and all the extras to make this feel like your home away from home. The landscaping around the condo is very lush and makes for a very private setting, but allows you to enjoy seeing the gulf and hearing the wonderful sounds. The owners were so accommodating and accessible, answering all our questions and providing wonderful information. I would recommend this property to anyone who wants to enjoy Sanibel Island.

ADORABLE CONDO SO CLOSE TO THE BEACH!

  • 5 of 5
Coquina Beach 1A is a fantastic unit, with views of the ocean from the lanai. The short walk to the beach on a private sandy pathway is charming and "jungly", which makes you feel like you are on your own little island. Being on the ground floor is SO convenient, especially when you have little ones and lots of equipment to lug back and forth to the beach. The decor is very nice, and the unit is very clean. The new bathrooms and kitchen are also really great. This is a perfect central location for biking to several places on the island - lighthouse point, Jerry's, Bailey's, etc. I only wish the second bedroom had one queen bed instead of two twins - the twins were a little high and narrow for our 5 year old, and he rolled off a lot. :) He's just not used to that type of bed. The twins are also too small for most adults, if you have a grandparent or someone else using that room. That is my only small issue with 1A, but for many families with two children who are a little older and used to twin beds it will be a great unit.
