Sanibel Island Condo Rental Photos and Description
Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths (Sleeps 4-6)

Our Tropical Penthouse is at the end of the second building and affords that extra peace and quiet that you search for when you want to get away from all of the hustle & bustle. We are located on the third floor and occupy a portion of the fourth floor, due to our soaring ceilings, which allow for a more open feeling. There are only a few of these unique penthouses on the entire island! (Actually, there are no high-rise buildings on Sanibel, but these units are fondly referred to as ''penthouses''). The 1,385 square feet are all on a single floor.

Features: VAULTED CEILINGS, Many Architectural Details, TROPICAL Decor, Glass-Enclosed LANAI with Sliders to capture Ocean Breezes. FULLY-Equipped Kitchen, New W/Dryer. 2 Bedrooms, 2 Full Baths, Beds: 1 Queen (Hand-carved), 2 Twins, Convertible Queen, 2 Dining Areas, Beach Chairs, Cable Satelite, 3 TVs (ONE WITH 42'' FLAT SCREEN-COMCAST HD, DVR), 100s of Channels, 2 DVD PLAYERS, Stereo, CD Player, WIFI SECURED, Outside Elevator

Unique Benefits of Our Family Home: Enjoy our deluxe TROPICAL PENTHOUSE. We have a private linen/towel service so that everything will be 'hospital-clean' for you. Established island management company attends to your needs. ALL you have to do is RELAX.

From our enclosed and beautifully-furnished lanai, you can enjoy a quiet breakfast overlooking the well-manicured courtyard and watch the birds light on the palms, Bougainvilleas, and lush foliage. And there is a partial view of the beach.

Take the stairs or elevator outside, stroll through the courtyard, pass one of the largest pools on the island, and within a couple of minutes, you will find yourself on the world-renown shelling beach, gazing at the aqua waters with nothing between you and Mexico. Your only decision now is whether to sunbathe, swim or walk--without a care in the world.

Later you may want to walk, bike, or ride to local shops & restaurants. Or cross the bridge to find malls, larger grocery stores, movie complexes, and city conveniences

Family Memories at The Tropical Penthouse: Our family purchased this condo in 1974, and we kept it as our special family retreat, affording us an abundance of wonderful memories. We had fun redecorating several times, and always kept the tropical theme. We only began to share our secret and to rent a few years ago.

We love to swim out to the buoy, lounge on the beach and read books to each other, bird and people watch, and bike 27 miles on safe bike trails. We go to Captiva, have a Starbucks soy milk and bike back again. We kayak, dance and dine at elegant restaurants as well as eat out at the casual restaurants, shop at Periwinkle Place, eat homemade ice cream at Pinochio's, watch a sunset on the beach, and take romantic walks. Sometimes we even relax and fall asleep on the beautifully hand-carved bed with the comfy mattress, while ocean breezes surround us. We breathe deeply and sleep soundly. We are in our Tropical Paradise!

About Us: I was a ballerina and later had a career in sales/marketing for a fortune 500 company. My husband was a nuclear chemist. We are now both retired, and we return several times a year to enjoy our beautiful, tropical home. Although we have visited many resorts around the world, we have found that we love our Sanibel home the best! We hope that you will have a chance to enjoy our home and island as much as we do!

We want you to feel like honored guests in our home. We will be available to help you as much as possible. But since we are a state away, we have employed a well-established management/rental company to have your keys waiting for you, to answer any questions, and to just be on hand to make sure that everything is running smoothly & that you having the perfect vacation at our special get-away

Of course we love The Tropical Penthouse. It is our family home. But we hope that you will read our reviews to learn how much our other guests have loved our family retreat also.

Perfect Beach Getaway

We were looking for a relaxing trip to a warm climate to meet up with family who all live in different states. We fell in love with this condo as soon as we walked in the door. It was so inviting, clean and had a stylish but beachy feel. It was enjoyable to be in a cozy home instead of a sterile hotel room. We were impressed with the large space and how it housed all 5 of us so comfortably. It's also very quiet and peaceful which helped us relax. While we loved going to the beach and pool during the day we found ourselves enjoying our quiet evenings at the condo just as much as our beach time. We loved cooking big dinners in the kitchen, playing cards at the table and spending quality time together. I've recommended this condo to several of my friends. We are planning another trip back and hope to make it an annual tradition! The owners were extremely helpful and accomodating to all of our needs and questions. We feel so lucky to have found our beach getaway and couldn't imagine staying anywhere else.

Our stay here was absolutely wonderful! Loggerhead Cay is a beautiful, peaceful, well kept community. This unit was extremely clean, beautifully decorated, well maintained, and had all the amenities we needed. The owners thought of the extra details like having towels, beach chairs, beach umbrella, and sand toys. They left information on local attractions, and maps of the area. The interior is stunningly beautiful and tastefully decorated. The beds were extremely comfortable and there was plenty of room to relax while not at the beach. Eating or relaxing on the lanai, overlooking the ocean was an added treat. We rented bikes and found the bike paths very good in getting around the area. The owners were extremely helpful in giving us tips on places to sightsee, eat, shop, and just relax. We hope to get back this year and would definitely rent this unit.

We had such a great visit here last year. We want to return again this year and hope we can work our schedule out to again stay at your condo. It is so relaxing to just be there, walk on the beach, shop at the stores and eat the wonderful food at the many restaurants close to Loggerhead Cay. What a realxing getaway for my wife and me. The place is so tastefully decorated and just beautiful surroundings. Am great value and a wonderful experience, as well. Thanks again!

Bob and I are all settled in at your very lovely condo! We actually arrived early enough to unpack and grocery shop so we're set for a very restful week or so. Your home is just beautiful. I must tell you, we have stayed at Loggerhead Cay for the past three years and your unit is by far the most beautiful we have rented. It is just lovely...the furnishings are beautiful and comfortable. Sitting on the lanai and looking out at the palm trees and gulf is absolutely relaxing and just what we needed.
