About Jeffrey & Gretchen Koontz

My wife's family has been vacationing on Sanibel Island for the last 3 decades. Now, their children and grandchildren enjoy Sanibel as much as they did 30 years ago.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your condo was tastefully decorated, with those French doors leading into the large-sized bedroom. The ambiance was unsurpassed throughout the entire place. Whatever we needed was at our fingertips. The easy access to the pool and beach was welcome. This was likely our fifth or sixth stay Sanibel, and your place was the best. Thank you for sharing your home with me and my wife. I don't know whether we will return to Sanibel next winter, but if we do, your place will be our first choice.

Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, comfortable condo. with a perfect location. Short walk to the beach as you step out of the lanai. The unit has an extremely well equipped kitchen as well as board games, beach towels, chairs, and a few toys for the kids. The beds are very comfortable and the rooms are nicely set up with plenty of room for company as well as private areas. The master bedroom is particularly roomy with lots of closet space. The location is quiet but close to groceries and shops that are easily reachable by bike or car. The inground pool with bathrooms are easily accessible from this unit if you don't feel like the beach. On top of it all, the owners are extremely helpful and welcoming- there was even a fruit basket for us upon our arrival!

All our needs fulfilled.

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Sanibel since 1982. Our unit at 251 Loggerhead Cay was the only place that we'd like to return to.

The unit was very close to an adequate-sized pool and nearby beach.

The condominium itself was an open concept, with a delightful table in the kitchen, and eating areas at the kitchen bar and dinette area.

Welcoming French doors were at the entrance to master bedroom which was sizable. Off this bedroom was a screened patio. The second bedroom was quite intimate.

Whatever we needed was available.

We unfortunately left our car and house keys when we left. Within a short time we received a call from Gretchen saying she would mail them to our home.

Many thanks to Jeff and Gretchen for allowing us to share their home.

Loggerhead 251

  • 5 of 5

The unit is in very good condition and in a very nice location. The amenities are everything that you need for a family with kids (beach and pool toys are available in the unit and a nice selection of family games and movies). The overall condo area is very clean and well-kept up. The pool is heated and also very clean. We really enjoyed our time in this rental unit.

Wonderful winter escape

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week's stay in 251 Loggerhead Cay and had a wonderful visit from beginning to end. The unit was very clean and perfectly furnished with everything we needed from beach towels and chairs to pool toys. My daughter took one look at all of the toys and declared it "the best hotel ever!". It is a first floor unit with direct walk out onto the lawn and a quick stroll to the beach. My mother uses a cane and the direct access was perfect for her to get out to the pool or beach with ease. We stayed in a different condo on the island last year and this one was far superior in every way. We would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: Katrina, Thank you for the very nice review, and we are very happy that your daughter enjoyed the toys and the condo itself. Also it is very important to us that your mother enjoyed her time there as well, and her easy access to the beach or pool. I hope that you will return some day soon and of course bring your Mom and daughter! Thanks Gretchen & Jeff

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This place is a must! Great location. Close to restaurants and light house. Beach not far and pretty empty. Me and my wife had a great time. If you want a peaceful great time look no further. Owners were great too. Don't miss out on this gem. Until next time

Owner's Response: John, Thank you very much for your kind review. We appreciated having you stay at our condo and look forward to your return visit. Please try each season of the year since each season has something different to offer at the beach...starfish, sand dollars and shells of all kind. We hope you have a great trip home. Thanks Jeff & Gretchen

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!!!
