Florida South Central Gulf Coast Condo Rental Photos and Description

Sanibel Island has been consistently ranked in the top 10 beaches in North America. Arthur Frommer's a well respected vacation destination expert, recently named Sanibel Island his # 1 vacation destination in the world. Sanibel Island has sand so fine that it feels like flour between your toes and boasts some of the best shelling in the world. It is very tropical, non-commercial, clean, friendly and has a huge appreciation of wildlife and the arts. Frequent vacation destination for Europeans.

You can enjoy the island using over 30 miles of bike paths. It has good fishing, boating and many delicious restaurants on the Island. Great relaxing destination from the big city life.

Loggerhead Cay # 151 is a ground floor, Gulf front condominium located near where the causeway ends up at the Gulf of Mexico. The complex prides itself with its beautiful landscaping and is located at the east end of the island, not far from the fishing pier and lighthouse. It is within easy driving distance to excellent restaurants, recreational activities and shopping. ALSO CHECKOUT LISTING # 268045 WHICH IS A GULF FRONT 3 BEDROOM TOWNHOME

Loggerhead Cay is ideal for families with children, as it offers many entertaining activities for children, such as: large heated swimming pool, tennis courts, shuffle board courts and a recreation facility complete with kitchen and B-B-Q gas grills. The facility can be reserved at the Loggerhead Cay office for large group get togethers, such as family reunions.

As you enter the condominium, you experience the spacious open kitchen, dining room and living area that is furnished with island appeal. Guests enjoy an unobstructed view of the Gulf of Mexico.

The condominium has two bedrooms, large closets and two full bathrooms. It has a king sized bed, two twin beds and a queen sized hide-a-bed. The master bedroom and living areas face the Gulf of Mexico where you can hear the sounds of the surf and enjoy the beautiful view of the Gulf of Mexico.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Jim,







We had a great vacation in Sanibel. We were blessed with great weather and fishing the entire trip. 151 was a great location with a beautiful view of the gulf, even from the first floor. Being on the first floor made it convenient for us to come and go to the beach or pool. I think your building is the best in loggerhead. We were very happy with the cleanliness and level of comfort inside of your condo. We slept great every night on the nice mattresses.







We appreciate the opportunity to have stayed at your place!

Perfect beachfront location for our Sanibel trip!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVED the location for this condo. The condo is situated directly on the beach--just a two minute walk! We loved that the condo was located on the first floor--it was so nice to walk out to the beach from the lanai. We also appreciated the fact that we could bring our small dog as well. Most restaurants welcome small dogs on Sanibel--plus, this beach is dog friendly too. Comfortable beds, great views, everything was clean and spacious. Jim was also great to work with--he even called us there to see if we needed anything. We are already thinking about renting the condo again next year! Thanks for allowing us to rent your fabulous condo!

Great week on Sanibel

  • 5 of 5

Arrived late evening for our stay to a very clean welcoming condo. In the morning was able to view sunrise over the gulf with our morning cup of coffee in the screened lanai. This unit is Very close to a beautiful stretch of beach for long walks. In fact, walked all the way down to the lighthouse one day. Discovered walking (or biking) trails in Ding Darling that we had never hiked before. Spotted an alligator from one of those trails which was a first on Sanibel for us! Returning to the condo after our adventures was a pleasure. We had everything we needed to prepare meals in when we chose. New furniture in the living and dining areas was comfy and cute! Bed very comfortable as well.
