About carla hogan

We live in Albany, New York and are in our late 50s. Bill is an Assistant Deputy Commissioner for a NYS agency and Carla is a lawyer in private practice. We have a toy poodle, Charlie, who also loves Sanibel. Our daughter , Sarah, is 27, living in NYC busy working and enjoying city life. We visited many islands and different beach areas of Florida before we first came to Sanibel and it's been Sanibel ever since for us. Frommers has rated Sanibel the #1 vacation spot and we totally agree.....there is just something very special about this island and the people who live here full time, part time or come to visit. Everyone has a smile and a story to share and the magic is in the beaches, the shelling, the biking and the emphasis on environmental preservation. It is so much like 'old Florida' here -- relaxing, charming and unspoiled.

carla hogan purchased this condo in 2010

Why carla hogan chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

We fell in love with this condo from the moment we walked in because the views were the best we had seen and the unit was so private and quiet. We've spent many vacations on Sanibel but finally decided to purchase a condo when we saw Tarpon 110. Then we gutted and remodeled and redid everything including skim coating the walls and bought all new Sanibel type furniture and bedding and new appliances. We still seek feedback from our guests on what we can add to make your next stay even more special. We live in upstate New York and visit Sanibel 3-4 weeks annually now. We've visited every season and each one has its advantages. One thing we've noticed -- it doesn't seem to rain much or long on Sanibel -- it seems to stop at the bridge from Ft Myers! We love this home and hope you will share your experience with us on VRBO comments. Enjoy!!!! Bill and Carla Hogan.

Vacation In Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our first visit to Sanibel was perfect. The condo was top of the line. It was equipped with all the conveniences of home and more. The view of the ocean was amazing. It was so peaceful and relaxing. Loved sleeping with windows wide open to enjoy the ocean breeze. Woke up each morning with the sun rising outside my window. The condo was decorated beautifully, roomy and very quiet. After a day on the beach collecting an array of shells, a stop at the pool topped off the day. Bikes were available for short rides around the island. Shopping and eateries are just a bike ride away. Enjoyed visiting the nature preserves and sunset cruises. There is so much to explore on the island. Weather was perfect for us. Top rating for this beautiful condo. Hope to escape the Northeast again next winter to recharge.

Super clean and great location

  • 5 of 5

I was super impressed with the cleanliness of this condo. After renting on for 25+ years, I have only stayed in 2 other places that were this clean. The condo sparkled! Decor is lovely, just as in the photos. The location is excellent for biking around the island to shops, attractions, restaurants, etc., plus it's just steps from the beach. Complex is quiet and the bed was super comfortable. We went in May, and there were no crowds. The owner and management office were great to work with. We will not hesitate to stay here again.

Another visit, spectacular again!

  • 5 of 5

In the six months since our vacation was fully planned, my husband and I went through one of the most stressful periods we've ever experienced including job changes, moving and family health issues. We feel like we need a mid-winter vacation every year, but this year...we really needed a vacation. 2015 marked our second stay at this condo. The crisp, yet calming decor and attention to detail set our minds at ease as soon as we walked through the door. The living room fully opens up to the lanai for a wide open view of the Gulf. The sound of the gentle surf swept the stress right out of our minds. By the end of the week, we had let go of the past and were ready to deal with the present. This is our first choice of accommodation on Sanibel Island. This place is absolutely gorgeous and well-maintained. Take my advice: book early!

My husband and I stayed for a week in early September and the place was even better than the pictures -spotless, comfortable and oh so relaxing. The view is amazing and the accommodations perfect. If you're looking for a quiet place to unwind with all the comforts of home while you enjoy all that Sanibel has to offer, this is the place for you. Carla was a pleasure to work with - very responsive and helpful. Highly recommend this condo and would definitely return!

Relaxation to the max!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful condo for a week and it was perfect for our family. It is a great location by being mid-island: close to shopping, Ding Darling and Captiva. The unit's decor is soothing, relaxing and comfortable and the view is gorgeous (no tall palm trees to obstruct the Gulf view)! The unit is well maintained, very clean and quiet. We enjoyed having breakfast on the lanai and watching the shell seekers and pelicans go by. The pool had plenty of lounge chairs for the size of the complex and the separate shell sink was convenient. The owner, Carla, was very prompt in helping us book the property and answering questions that we had. We can't wait to go back--we've already booked for two weeks next year! Highly recommended for everyone.
