Guestbook comments from the owner
You have a beautiful condo & we thoroughly enjoyed it! This was our 25th anniversary and we decided we enjoyed the laid-back feel of your condo much better than the cruise we took. We loved the bikes and they soon became our main mode of transportation. While boating we saw manatees, a highlight of our trip! Loved everything about our stay. Thank you for making your condo so comfortable and homey. We would love to come back & will be raving to anyone who will listen!

We love the miles of beach, kick back atmosphere and the variety of activities. There's something for everyone and so relaxing. We smile just thinking of Sanibel. It's a great magnet to draw family from across the country for family get-togethers. Sanibel Thanksgiving and birthdays have become family traditions. We know you will love it too.

Take a ride to Captiva for sunset dinner. Bike to breakfast. Run on the beach. Post your photo at Sanibel Bean!

EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS!

  • 5 of 5
This was my family's first trip to Sanibel and it will certainly not be our last. This condo was everything we hoped for and more; perfect location, great view of pool and a very short walk through the courtyard to the ocean. The unit was very spacious, tastefully decorated, and had what appeared to be new carpet. The bikes, wifi, beach chairs, umbrella and towels were extremely appreciated and made our vacation so enjoyable. The complex is very quiet and well maintained. We rented a car but traveled everywhere on the island by bike. The trails were great and ensured a true island experience. We will be back!

GREAT FOR GOLF, FISHING & FUN

Great for golf, fishing & fun
  • 5 of 5
We visited this condo last August and had the run of the island. It was our first time fishing in the Gulf and thoiugh I'd heard of "snook" had no idea what they were. Got our fishing license at Bailey's store and went out withJensens's for a day to learn the local ropes. They were great & gave a free fishing lesson. Got redfish and tarpon as well as snook. Spent time fishing in the surf and from the pier. Had great eating. Grilled our catch out at the gas grills to keep this very nice condo from smelling "fishy".
I should say something about the condo. It was just great for us. Girls loved the beach, golf and pool. Its a great setup, very clean and comfortable and handy to everything. Very glad to recommend it.

GREAT TIME ON SANIBEL

  • 5 of 5
Our family had a wonderful time on Sanibel and we just loved your beautiful home there. The condo and the weather were just great and now that we are in this cold spell, we miss it more than ever! Our children still talk about all the fun we had, swimming, kayaking and bicycling. We were so happy to have them gladly choose beach fun over the tv and computer games.
Your condo was just wonderful and so comfortable and pretty with all your tasteful beachy touches. Thank you very much!

WE HAD A WONDERFUL TIME

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay and are happy to recommend your condo. We love the location and stay at Loggerhead Cay whenever we can, and your condo was one of the nicest we have stayed in. Your addition of dedicated wifi worked very well; not like the frustrating system that the complex had in years past. We also loved using your nice comfortable bikes to cycle around the island. Thank you again and we look forward to returning.

THANKS FOR HAVING US.

  • 5 of 5
Thanks so much for allowing us to share your beautiful home. We loved the beachy touches and the location was perfect for us. We had so much fun. The beach is incredible and we fell in love with the island. The only disappointment was that our departure date came so quickly. We will be sure to plan on visiting again next summer.
