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!

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Loggerhead Cay Unit 151 is a great unit especially if you have a dog. The first floor unit makes it so easy to take your dog out to the beach and there is an open area in front of the unit you can play. It has a nice view of the ocean. The unit has had some updates with nice plank tile floors. The kitchen is equipped for cooking and there are gas grills but you have to walk to them. I would not hesitate to stay here again with my dog because it is very confident. I am very grateful the owner and the property are willing to be pet friendly. There are not a lot of choices for pet owners to choose from. But this unit at Loggerhead Cay is perfect for you and your dog to stay while visiting Sanibel.

Great condo in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

Jim's condo is a great choice while staying on Sanibel... clean, nice updates, roomy, comfortable beds, great a/c. We definitely enjoyed having the Keurig coffee maker and having an in-unit washer/dryer was helpful. The bed linens and towels are updated and nice as well. The unit is ground-floor and the assigned parking spot is in a good location. Jim and the property management company (Sanibel Holiday) were attentive and demonstrated that they cared that we had a good experience.

Loggerhead Cay is in a great location and is a very well maintained property. The pool is refreshing and the lawns are beautiful.

Sanibel is great for those who enjoy biking, hiking, fishing, anything outdoors. The $5 wildlife loop in Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge is worthwhile, especially early in the morning or late in the afternoon. We saw lots of birds, jumping mullet, and red mangrove tree crabs. Didn't see any gators or snakes, but that was ok with us! The CROW wildlife rehabilitation center was a nice indoor experience for a respite from the heat. The $12 visitor center entrance fee is worth it for the work they do there. Take in one of the wildlife talks, highlighting a current wildlife ambassador; we met Shelldon, a very charming gopher tortoise. They also offer nature/wildlife walks for an additional fee.

Our favorite dining experiences were at Trader's, Island Cow, and Matzaluna's. Definitely visit Joey's Custard for delicious ice cream and a great chat. Both Jerry's and Bailey's grocery stores have everything you'll need on island.

Paradise here on earth!!

  • 5 of 5

after the "Irma" saga of a hurricane, we were able to finally make it to our Paradise here on earth. What a wonderful, relaxing time! Loggerhead Cay 151 has our vote! The unit is very well stocked to cook any meal or any size of meal for any size of family! Mr. Jim has done a wonderful job keeping it stocked & full of ALL the "have too's" for each meal and the prep thereof! Our bed was the most comfortable i've been in on a trip, sofa was even worth an afternoon nap for the hubby. The overall space in the condo was & is always a plus. Mr. Jim has also updated the bathroom counters (pictures do not reflect the new granite as of yet 10-9-17) but they look fabulous! Mr. Jim also provides all beach supplies = chairs, umbrellas, buckets, beach towels, shelling shovel, etc. and it's just the PERFECT location to the beach, which made each morning at daybreak just a few steps to the most perfect beach to see just what the ocean had deposited on the white sand for us to share. The grounds at loggerhead continue from year to year to out-do any by far! Just knowing how many people visit each condo, I am VERY PLEASED at the effort this owner takes in his home away from home for others to enjoy! (Mr. Jim should be the instructor of a "how to be a good owner" class") He is very pleasant & willing to assist in any way! He also has lots of knowledge of the island as well!!

We love Sanibel & Thank God each time we can share in its beauty!

Fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

This unit was great!! The fact that it is on the first floor made no difference as you could see the gulf perfectly. The unit also sits between the pool and gulf so it made access a breeze. The interior was well decorated and well maintained and offered anything you needed to cook etc. we will definitely be returning next Summer.

Beautiful beachfront condo!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a weeklong stay. The condo is a spacious 2 bedroom 2 bath unit on the ground floor with access to the pool/beach from the lanai. The beds are very comfortable, the tile is convenient if you re bringing a pet, the furnishings in the living/dinning room are updated. The owner is very accommodating and is available to answer any questions you may have. He stated that the unit will be getting new floors, windows and doors and kitchen in August 2017. The building is very well maintained with beautiful lawns. We enjoyed bike rides on the island, fishing on the Sanibel Pier, shopping, and swimming in the ocean. We recommend stopping at Publix before entering the island as prices in the Island are a little inflated. The only negative for us was that the grills were far from the apartment and we grilled a lot. We wished that the building had grills by the pool. However, we prefer to be close to beach than close to the grills. All in all, a great place to stay!

Owner's Response: The grills are located by the tennis and shuffle board courts less than 100 yards from my golf front condo. The owners decided against having grills by the pool for sanitary and safety reasons.
