About Becky

My husband and I reside in Massachusetts and love visiting our Florida condo a few times a year.

Becky purchased this condo in 2003

Why Becky chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

We fell in love with Sanibel during an unexpected short trip.

I love the beach and our condo has a great view of the beach! Our Complex has the best pool on the island - good for lap swim. We also love that our complex allows pets. Our condo is on the corner of the beach and the courtyard and has vaulted ceilings. We love the views and the interior. You can see the beach from the living room and lanai, and also from the kitchen. It is a unique unit.

What makes this condo unique

We allow small pets, and have WIFI.

We love boating to North Captiva, Cabbage Key, Ft. Myers Beach, Matlacha, Caya Costa and Cape Coral. Kayaking at Tarpon Bay into the mangroves is also fun.

Rates already include damage protection - Not necessary to separately purchase.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for another amazing week on Sanibel Island! We had a blast! The weather was gorgeous! It snowed at home while we were here so that made our vacation even better! We're not going to be able to come back until 2015, so we're a little sadder than usual, but we will survive.

Beach Corner View at Loggerhead Cay - #523

Wonderful condo, great pool and beach. Pet friendly!

  • 5 of 5

We loved that we could bring our small dog with us. This condo was wonderful. One of the closest units to the beach and also very close to the pool. Our dog could watch us in the pool from the screened balcony. That screened balcony was probably our favorite feature of the condo. Not only was the view of the ocean amazing, but it also had very comfortable and attractive furniture for dining and reading and relaxing. The kitchen was very well equipped which was a huge plus since we cook all of our own meals. The grounds of Loggerhead Cay are beautiful and well tended. The only two negatives were that you can't quite see the sun set from the beach here (it sets behind trees/buildings) and specific to the condo, the second bedroom and bathroom are due for an update. Sanibel is almost beyond description, come see for yourself!

Great Condo!!

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting a condo on the beach in Sanibel for the last 15 years and this is one of the nicer places we have stayed at (but not the most expensive). Very beautifully decorated, nice and roomy, great beach view and had everything you would need. Thanks for a great visit and would definitely recommend.

Lovely condo

  • 4 of 5

Overall we had a wonderful vacation. Unfortunately, due to the intense heat, we didn't have a chance to use the lanai. The condo is very pretty and everything worked well. One of the blinds in the master bedroom fell down when we opened he blinds the first time. My family and I really wished that the pool was not heated!

Incredible Location, Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough about how perfect this condo at Loggerhead Cay and Sanibel Island both are. The view of the beach is incredible - so calming and loved hearing the waves. The condo is perfect for our family of 4 and we really appreciated the opportunity to bring our dog. She loved the beach too!

The shelling on Sanibel is like no other. Each day was like opening a new treasure chest - a wonderful and exciting experience for us and our kids! The location of this unit is just minutes away from Periwinkle Way and from great shopping and dining.

The complex is so well and beautifully manicured and the pool was awesome. Loved being just steps away to both the pool and the beach. Thank you for providing beach towels and fun beach toys, tubes, chairs and an umbrella. Really appreciated them all!

Thank you for a wonderful week and we look forward to returning again and again!

Beautiful view, great location

  • 5 of 5

This is the third year we have stayed in this unit. Best view of beach with sun to balcony. CLose to pool but not part of inner courtyard noise. All amenitites good and bed very comfortable. ONly rec is to consider longer single beds as they seem a little short.

As usual Loggerhead Cay looked beautiful. They do a fine job with landscaping.

  • 4 of 5

We love the view from your condo and the easy access to the beach. There were a couple of issues we maybe should have pointed out to maintenance. The sink in the master drips which was not an issue with us but if you are paying the water bill it could be a concern for you. Also the exhaust fan in the master is extremely loud. Everything else worked just fine.

When we were there the beach was littered with dead fish which I have never seen in the 15 plus years I have been coming to Sanibel. It was cleaned up by Monday but the smell from all the dead sea creatures was awful. I am aware of the issue with the run off water from the lake and it is really messing up the beaches. Hope a solution is found soon.

We are looking forward to returning next year.

Owner's Response: Ruth, Thanks for your review and thanks for pointing out things for maintenance to take care of. I will address them as soon as possible. So sorry you had to experience the dead fish. There was a red tide bloom that is extremely rare in the Fall, Winter or Spring. It was the result of the heavy rain we had in January; 15 inches of rain fell in January, which more than doubled the previous record. Normal rain in January usually only amounts to an inch or two. This unusual event caused the heavy runoff into the Gulf and the red tide. It would be extremely rare for it to happen again during the drier seasons. Glad you still decided to return next year!
