Paradise!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying at this wonderful condo! First of all, Gretchen and Jeff are very friendly and such accommodating folks! The condo is on the first floor, so you can walk right out to the beautiful courtyard and pool, and then it's a short walk to the beach. The condo is also stocked full of everything you need! We LOVE the water filter on the refrigerator, and all the appliances are just fantastic! Once you're here, you can enjoy the beautiful beach, shelling, sunsets, J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Preserve, take a 2 mile beach walk to the Sanibel Lighthouse and do so much more! Thanks Gretchen and Jeff for such a great experience at your comfy condo! It was truly paradise!!!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this condo for 10 weeks and enjoyed every moment. We love Sanibel. This is the second year we have wintered in Sanibel, the first at this condo. The condo was very well equipped and comfortable for both ourselves and our guests. The beds were very comfortable. The first floor access to the beach and pool was perfect. We would definitely rent this condo again. Gretchen and Jeff were very accommodating and answered any questions we had almost immediately.

Perfect for a multigenerational family.

  • 5 of 5

This is a very comfortable condo for a multigenerational family. Easy walk out to the communal area and just steps from the beach. The condo is extremely well equipped with kitchen tools and dishes for cooking or baking anything. We’ve never seen so many different types of towels (including beach towels) in anyplace we have ever stayed. Chairs and playtoys for the beach were also available. The beds are comfortable and the blackout curtains are appreciated in the morning. The pool is heated so it was the perfect temperature during our stay. Tennis courts and bar-b-que grills also were great to use. The owners are extremely responsive to inquiries. We certainly would book this place again.

The condo was wonderful. Close to both the beach and pool. We had a great time. Only negative was the wifi connection but i dont think there is anything that the owners can do about that.

Owner's Response: Chris, Thank you for your kind response and we are glad you enjoyed the property. We were actually at the condo the week after you left and noticed the slower wifi. We have notified Comcast and the wifi is noticeably faster after some adjustments on their end. Thanks for letting us know about this.

Loved this ground level unit. Hope to re-book next year!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Loggerhead Cay, #251. I hope to re-book for next year!

Things we loved:

- LOVED the bottom floor location. Super convenient!

- Updated and well supplied kitchen

- The smaller bed and bath is separated from the rest of the condo by a door and small hallway. The bath isn't inside the bedroom - which we loved since we had little kids sleeping early in the evening.

- Very large patio - we easily pulled our kayak in

- Lots of pool/beach toys, a big float, beach chairs, shell buckets

- Loads of towels, plenty for 4 adults and 2 kids

- Twin sized mattress in the smaller bedroom closet that was perfect for our son.

- Quiet and family friendly development, saw lots of other families and kids.

- Traders was our favorite restaurant. Shrimp and white cheddar grits were out of this world!

We had a problem with the AC upon arrival and I only mention it to point out how quickly it was fixed and how attentive Gretchen was about the problem. She was very concerned and got it fixed right away.

Overall, it was a wonderful week and we will definitely stay again!!

Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

Overall, our experience was very good. Our favorite part of the property was all the sand toys, floats, beach chairs, umbrellas, etc. It was great that we didn't need to bring all of that for our two young children (3 & 5). We were a minutes walk from the pool and probably 5 mins to the beach. There was a binder with condo information when we arrived, but it was not out in plain site (probably needs updated). It would have been nice to have it sitting on the kitchen counter visible right away since we headed to the pool when we arrived only to find out it was adult swim from 4-5pm (also 8-9am in the mornings). It would have also been helpful to have clearer instructions on check-out policies: cleaning and what to do with the keys. We liked the fact it had a washer/dryer, dishwasher, was on ground level, nice pool, and for the most part was relatively quiet. Overall, a very good relaxing vacation.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind response and appreciation of our condo. We are happy that you found the amenities that you needed for your stay on Sanibel. As you know, we create a short one page contract and personal email to each renter reviewing our check in and out times, cleaning and what to do with the keys following departure. We will review this to determine if any enhancements can be made. Thanks Jeff
