We live in Albany, New York and are in our late 50s. Bill is an Assistant Deputy Commissioner for a NYS agency and Carla is a lawyer in private practice. We have a toy poodle, Charlie, who also loves Sanibel. Our daughter , Sarah, is 27, living in NYC busy working and enjoying city life. We visited many islands and different beach areas of Florida before we first came to Sanibel and it's been Sanibel ever since for us. Frommers has rated Sanibel the #1 vacation spot and we totally agree.....there is just something very special about this island and the people who live here full time, part time or come to visit. Everyone has a smile and a story to share and the magic is in the beaches, the shelling, the biking and the emphasis on environmental preservation. It is so much like 'old Florida' here -- relaxing, charming and unspoiled.
carla hogan purchased this condo in 2010
We fell in love with this condo from the moment we walked in because the views were the best we had seen and the unit was so private and quiet. We've spent many vacations on Sanibel but finally decided to purchase a condo when we saw Tarpon 110. Then we gutted and remodeled and redid everything including skim coating the walls and bought all new Sanibel type furniture and bedding and new appliances. We still seek feedback from our guests on what we can add to make your next stay even more special. We live in upstate New York and visit Sanibel 3-4 weeks annually now. We've visited every season and each one has its advantages. One thing we've noticed -- it doesn't seem to rain much or long on Sanibel -- it seems to stop at the bridge from Ft Myers! We love this home and hope you will share your experience with us on VRBO comments. Enjoy!!!! Bill and Carla Hogan.
The beaches; Big Arts, the bike trails, the library, the restaurants, the unique shops, the Farmer's Market,the Schoolhouse live theater, the absence of chain stores except a CVS and Dairy Queen, boating, fishing, shelling, wildlife, yoga, kayaking, golf, fairs, foreign and old movies at Big Arts, the old fashioned movie theater playing current movies and a beautiful Sanibel Recreation Center with classes all day and wonderful adult and kiddie outdoor pools. Oh -- and the December holiday lights -- not to be missed!
In the six months since our vacation was fully planned, my husband and I went through one of the most stressful periods we've ever experienced including job changes, moving and family health issues. We feel like we need a mid-winter vacation every year, but this year...we really needed a vacation. 2015 marked our second stay at this condo. The crisp, yet calming decor and attention to detail set our minds at ease as soon as we walked through the door. The living room fully opens up to the lanai for a wide open view of the Gulf. The sound of the gentle surf swept the stress right out of our minds. By the end of the week, we had let go of the past and were ready to deal with the present. This is our first choice of accommodation on Sanibel Island. This place is absolutely gorgeous and well-maintained. Take my advice: book early!
My husband and I stayed for a week in early September and the place was even better than the pictures -spotless, comfortable and oh so relaxing. The view is amazing and the accommodations perfect. If you're looking for a quiet place to unwind with all the comforts of home while you enjoy all that Sanibel has to offer, this is the place for you. Carla was a pleasure to work with - very responsive and helpful. Highly recommend this condo and would definitely return!
Today is my last day here and just want to say ditto to everyone's comments. Everything was perfect and so clean. The pool was great and the beach was fantastic. Great furnishings and fantastic remodeled bathrooms.
Working with Carla was great. She responded very quickly to all email inquires.

We stayed at this beautiful condo for a week and it was perfect for our family. It is a great location by being mid-island: close to shopping, Ding Darling and Captiva. The unit's decor is soothing, relaxing and comfortable and the view is gorgeous (no tall palm trees to obstruct the Gulf view)! The unit is well maintained, very clean and quiet. We enjoyed having breakfast on the lanai and watching the shell seekers and pelicans go by. The pool had plenty of lounge chairs for the size of the complex and the separate shell sink was convenient. The owner, Carla, was very prompt in helping us book the property and answering questions that we had. We can't wait to go back--we've already booked for two weeks next year! Highly recommended for everyone.
We absolutely loved this condo! It was very clean and had updated decor and furnishings. We also loved that many things were included that we were not able to bring with us on the plane. Carla was also very helpful at answering our questions in a timely manner. We didn't want to leave and would love to come back!
Love the décor - beachy but not over the top. Kitchen is top-notch; bathrooms were clean and updated; excellent view from lanai. And the bikes were really appreciated! We would definitely recommend your condo and hope to return soon.
