About Mike and Carol Davis

We live in Brentwood, TN (Nashville area) and have been long-time fans of beautiful Sanibel Island; in fact, we were married there. We collect sea shells, which is just one of the many reasons that we love coming to Sanibel and have shells displayed in the dining room curio cabinet for guests' enjoyment, as well as our own. Carol paints, and has several of her sea shore paintings in the unit.

We purchased condominium #208 for the porch privacy and view, and like to continually update the unit for guests' enjoyment, as well as our own.

Why Mike and Carol Davis chose Sanibel Island

This AAA rated gulf-front complex has always maintained the beautiful grounds and tropical foliage that make this beachfront complex such a paradise to stay at. Unit #208, a 5-star rated condo, is continually upgraded and maintained, making this a wonderful 'getaway home' for you and your family to enjoy.

What makes this condo unique

Unit #208 is close to all amenities in this beachfront complex: a large (heated) swimming pool, tennis courts, shuffleboard, laundry facility, a private beach, administrative office - all within steps of the condo. The condo has a private lanai that doesn't face multiple condo porches. Also, a top-rated island restaurant is next door, and just a block away is a beautiful 18-hole public golf course and club house restaurant. All of the other wonderful island restaurants and shopping areas are conveniently-close to our condominium; however if you prefer to dine-in, our condominium has a fully-furnished kitchen. The barbecue grills are also adjacent to our condo building Beach chairs and beach umbrella are furnished; and in case you want to bicycle on the miles of paved bicycle paths, bicycles are available for rent at the office.

sanibel siesta

  • 4 of 5

THIS WAS A BEAUTIFUL CONDO! GREAT VIEW AND LOCATION, CONVENIENT TO EVERYTHING. CLOSE ENOUGH TO WALK RIGHT OVER TO THE BEACH. NICE TO BE ABLE TO HAVE OUR PETS WITH US. COZY AND COMFORTABLE, GREAT BED AND ALL THE KITCHEN ITEMS WE NEEDED TO COOK DAILY. THE LAST WEEK OF THE YEAR IS DEFINITELY THE BUSIEST IVE EVER SEEN ON THE ISLAND. WALK TO THE BEACH TO WATCH FIREWORKS ON NEW YEARS EVE. LOTS OF BUSYNESS, ACTIVITY, AND KIDS AROUND.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent 3 nights in this condo. It was a very pleasant stay. Very nicely decorated, had everything you needed and was very quiet. My kids loved that they had their own separate room with 2 twin beds and bathroom. The master bedroom was wonderful with a nice, big, comfortable bed and an adjoining bathroom with separate shower/sink/vanity area. Both bedrooms had big walk-in closets. There was a screened porch right off the master bedroom and living room.

It was also nice having a kitchen with everything you would need. Very helpful if you want to save some money and eat in instead of going out. There was a bar to eat at, or a dining table with plenty of seating.

It was a nice touch when the owner called to make sure we had everything we needed and that we were having a good stay! Very kind of them to do that.

There were also beach chairs and umbrellas to use at the beach and pool noodles for the kids to use in the pool.

The property was nice. The pool was nice and there was even an outside sink provided to wash off all the shells that we had collected. The paths leading to the ocean were nicely maintained and there were several different ones to walk on. Also, you could rent bicycles from the office.

This was the best stay that our family had on our 10 day vacation, and we would recommend it to anyone. It was excellent!

Very Nice!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay - very nice/clean/updated condo! When our plans for a Beach Front Unit fell through, we booked this unit and could not had been any happier. The beach is only a hop & skip away and the entire family took full advantage of the outdoor pool which was only steps away from our unit.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

This condo has it all! Great location to the beach, shopping, restaurants and bike paths (and you can rent bikes from the office!) The condo is furnished beautifully (BUT it is very comfortable). The kitchen is well equipped. The screened porch runs the length of the unit , has 2 ceiling fans, a table and seating for 6. The pictures do not do it justice! The office staff is great and the pool is huge, plenty of tables and chairs and is sparkling clear. Most of the art work that graces the walls was painted by one of the owners.....she is awesome! the beach on this part of the island is lovely and you can be on it in moments from leaving the front door. My husband was thrilled with the large flat screen TV and all the channels available. There are many books also provided, with a wide genre. The elevator and luggage carriers provided make unpacking and repacking (sigh..) the car a breeze. The grounds of this complex make you feel like you are in a tropical paradise! We had a great week!
