Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Beautiful and luxurious living!

Loggerhead Cay unit 514 offers endless water views from this top floor luxury unit. This condo is a Gulf Front unit in building five of Sanibel Island's premier weekly rental destinations. Unit 514 has been completely renovated in an open floor plan style and will not disappoint! We can comfortably sleep six guests with two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a queen size sleeper sofa. Bedrooms are large and private. Unit 514 has plenty of closet space, flat screen TV's and comfortable bedding and towels. The Screened Lanai overlooks the Gulf, is very comfortably appointed, and a great place to enjoy coffee, meals, or a cocktail.

Loggerhead Cay sits on a beautiful world famous shelling beach, offering convenient access to the causeway, bike and walking paths, marinas, and many other attractions. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge occupies almost a third of the island and is home to spectacular migratory birds, manatee, alligators, bobcat, and many species of wildlife. There are several shops, galleries and restaurants nearby, as well as two full service grocery stores. Within the complex, there is a heated swimming pool, tennis courts, shuffleboard, BBQ grills and picnic tables.

This condo features high end furnture throughout. The thoughtfully designed gourmet kitchen is fully equipped for entertaining or just enjoying a meal with one of the best views on the island. Dining table seats six, and enjoys incredible Gulf views - better than island restaurants! The flat screen television disappears into the granite windowsill offering unobstructed views. The master bedroom welcomes you with a comfortable queen mattress, luxury linens, en suite bath, built-in cabinetry, and full sliding doors opening to the glassed/screened lanai overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. The lanai is furnished with an additional dining set and 'stress less' leather recliners. Many an evening has been spent watching the sky change colors with the setting sun. Dolphins are frequently spotted playing in the surf near shore.

We stock the condo with a pack and play, beach towels, and beach chairs. If we don't have it, we can help you find it! You'll find the reserved parking space near the elevator most convenient.

We have been renting our condo for 8 years, we are good at what we do, and look forward to working with you to make your vacation memorable.

Weird chopped up layout

  • 2 of 5

Unit felt chopped up and had a weird layout design.

Plus side was nice updated spacious kitchen with large island. Great Gulf views.

Downside was the floor plan with a weird, raised living area and bizarre master bedroom / lanai entrance. Bathrooms felt outdated and a little worn out.

The most amazing view!

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed in this unit for several years, and the view is the best. Very peaceful and relaxing, on an island we have come to love over many years.

I am giving 4 stars instead of 5, as we experienced a few problems. We could not get the main TV to work correctly. For some reason, there are 4 remotes on the table, instead of the 3 last year, but only one has batteries, and it didn't work. It has always worked other years, but this time, no matter what we tried, we could only watch CBS. We did appreciate the TV channel charts, but we could not access anything other than CBS. Erin's attempts to help did not work, and following the user manual didn't either. As watching TV was not our focus while there, we finally gave up. Either there is a secret we could not find, or something was not working.

The garbage disposal was also not working for our entire visit. Even resetting the button on the disposal did not work. We notified Erin, and she was going to take care of that.

We were appreciative of the added fan in the bedroom, as that definitely helped the room to stay cooler at night than on previous years. We were not able to leave the sliding doors to the lanai open much at all, as there was a significant problem with gnats this year, certainly not something in Erin's control, but part of nature and timing. Another helpful change was a new keyless entry lock, which worked much better than previous ones.

My husband noticed that the beach chairs are still the same as before, meaning they are the low-to-the ground chairs which we are unable to use. Regular height chairs would be very appreciated for those of us with limitations on getting 'down' to those low levels.

The pots and pans are also showing a lot of wear, although otherwise, the kitchen is well supplied for our needs.

Despite any of these issues, we still find this unit to have the most wonderful view, and is very peaceful. This year, we especially needed that, so thanks again. We hope to be back.

If you really want Full Ocean View this is the Unit for you !

  • 5 of 5

This unit is full Ocean View not one of those peek a boo picture tricks.

You can take a shower in the master and look out at the beach.

We found the condo nicely appointed and had everything needed for

An enjoyable stay. We would stay again and would recommend you give

It a try also.

Great first time to Sanibel

  • 5 of 5

This condo was awesome. Lots of room (huge kitchen counters), big bed rooms and loved that the kitchen had all that we needed. This was our family's first trip to Sanibel and it was really nice. We've never collected so many shells and the views from the condo and closeness to the beach were terrific.

The location and views from this condo were PERFECT!! We would definitely return to this spot again!

  • 4 of 5

Erin couldn't have been more gracious and helpful with all the info she provided before our stay and when she quickly responded to an outage of our TV service during our stay. Was a very small glitch in the scheme of things.

This condo has a screened/glassed-in front lanai, giving you up-close views directly onto the beach and water. Big ceiling fan and shade all day, along with two Stress less recliners , made it a most relaxing place to sit and watch whatever you wanted and hear the waves; so relaxing and comfortable! We finally saw dolphins, for hours, out in front of our unit on the next-to-last morning sipping coffee on the lanai. Exciting to see!

My cousin and I shared this condo for a week, and it's just what we needed for a relaxing girls' getaway. Close to everything; restaurants, shopping, lovely pool and just steps (flat access) to the beach. They provide beach chairs, towels, all bed and bath linens, even 2 beach coolers and a starter supply of laundry products, dishwashing liquid, toilet paper, etc. Fully stocked kitchen.

While charmingly decorated, the only reason I wouldn't give it 5 stars is because it could use a little "sprucing up." Maintenance and repair/replace for well-used bathroom sinks (rust), cabinets, light fixtures and exhaust fans (which are super loud and the one in the master made a really loud banging noise off and on first few nights from a vent in the wall or ceiling). While the glass sliders made the master bed view onto the lanai and beach beyond, spectacular, the AC didn't keep up with the rest of the place (and it wasn't that hot down there yet); stayed warmer than comfortable sometimes in the master bedroom and bath.

While I get that most folks can easily get in and out of the low-totheground beach chairs, we (with bad knees and ankles) couldn't. It would have been perfect to have 2 beach chairs and 2 regular height folding chairs for us "mature" folk to use.

The kitchen counter surround made of wood needs to go - sticky, hard to clean and paint is flaking off. The Mr. Coffee coffeemaker is dated and the 2nd pot of coffee we made, the water valve in the bottom of the basket stuck closed, causing coffee grinds and water to overflow everywhere!

Don't get me wrong. Everything I've mentioned is minor and didn't cause us any real undue angst or major inconvenience. In fact, I have a feeling Erin is already aware of what could use a little updating and is likely to make upgrades sooner than later. Overall, GO!
