About Greg & Ellen - Owners

We've been hooked on the unique island of Sanibel since the very first time we viewed it from the causeway. The white powder beach dotted with shells, tranquil water and the relaxed atmosphere are what had attracted us to Sanibel; the shelling, fishing and restaurants keep bringing us back. There's no place we'd rather be... We hope you love it as much as we do.

Why Greg & Ellen - Owners chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

LOCATION!!! Ground floor condo in building closest to the beach. GREAT value for the price.

SANIBEL and Captiva ISLANDS, FL (Money Magazine) - Suggesting Florida for the family's winter getaway probably won't garner you a reputation as a discriminating traveler -- until, that is, you mention the islands of Sanibel and Captiva.

Located on the Gulf Coast, just 45 minutes from Fort Myers airport via a narrow three-mile causeway, Sanibel and its smaller sister Captiva are not unknown -- the islands have long been considered one of the best places in the world for shelling -- but news of their tranquil beauty, pristine white sand beaches and laid-back charm has spread primarily by word of mouth.

Sanibel and Captiva are a beach lover's paradise. And thanks to visionary land-use regulations -- no building along Sanibel's coast can be taller than a palm tree, and half of the land is a federal wildlife reserve -- it might just stay that way. Together the islands offer 17 miles of public beaches and an endless array of activities. Among the most popular: cruising Sanibel's 26 miles of paved bike paths and J.N. 'Ding' Darlings' Wildlife Drive ($1 per bike, $5 per car), a five-mile loop that winds through the refuge's 7,000 acres of mangrove forest. You can see more than 50 species of birds in the winter. And there's a new $3.3 million wildlife education center with interactive exhibits that all but ensures your kids will enjoy learning about what they see.

The islands are also dotted with art galleries and studios that lend themselves to browsing. If you're more interested in trying a new sport, go windsurfing at Causeway Beach, where plenty of shops will rent you a board and provide a quick lesson. Or go deep-sea fishing. Given the variety of packages (available from half-day to whole day, from snapper to tarpon) we recommend you check with the chamber of commerce for a list of operators that will best suit your needs.

What makes this condo unique

Coquina Beach Condos have a private path to the beach. Umbrella and beach chairs provided. When you're hungry or need to freshen up, your condo's right there. No packing and hiking to a public beach required!

Two bikes provided for use during your stay.

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

We were at the property for one week. Everything about the townhome was great! It was clean, stocked with the essentials and had been updated. The location was perfect on Sanibel Island. We loved it and we hope to be able to rent the property again.

A nice place very close to the beach.

  • 4 of 5

This condo is as advertised - "steps from the the beach" and has many pluses. The condo is very spacious, very clean, has been updated (the hardwood-look tile in the main areas is amazing and is not cold on the feet) and the owners included many touches to make the stay enjoyable (beach towels/toys/chairs, umbrellas, bikes, movies, etc.). The weather during our week was perfect, and we spent most of the afternoons on the beach - the closeness made it ideal to "setup camp" and easily go back and forth for snacks and the restroom. This beach faces south/southeast so you get both a great sunrise and sunset. It's also close to the bike paths so riding to other beaches and shopping is very doable. You can also walk to a few restaurants/bars.

If you are looking for a water view from the condo, this isn't the unit for you. It's ground floor (a real plus for me) with a rear, parking lot view (not so scenic). While the foliage in front of the screened-in porch was great for privacy, it also provided for a bit of bugginess when it did rain on the last day. We were happy enough with the unit, as an ocean view wasn't that important to us - it also made it very quiet as we did not hear the water. Note that bug repellent is a must for just about anywhere in the area.

The owners were fantastic and even answered a question by email on a Sunday morning. Overall, we found it a good value in an excellent location.

We had a great time in Sanibel. This condo was the perfect location. Just steps frm the beach and close to markets and resturants. The condo was just as advertised, everything we needed for a fun relaxing week.

Another perfect Sanibel Spring Break!

  • 5 of 5

A walk through a beautiful tunnel of palms, leads you to this tastefully decorated, fully

furnished condo. Literally steps to the ocean, or if you want, steps to the pool! Two bikes, beach towels, chairs, toys & even an umbrella are a just a few of the things available with this unit that made our stay even more enjoyable. In a previous review I read a suggestion that the proprietor's might possibly add tennis rackets, bike helmets and baking sheets. Those items were there for our visit. So a thank you out for the suggestion, and a big thank you to the owners. Plenty to do and see on Sanibel, and we did as much as we could in two weeks. Vacationers on the Island for over 25 years, we felt that this condo gave us a "Tropical Hideaway" kind of feeling, yet we were minutes by car, or an easy bike ride to restaurants, Island stores and gift shops.

Beautiful Island, Excellent Condo!

RATES INCLUDE FEES & TAXES.

Each Coquina Beach Condo has ONE designated parking space assigned per unit, for 1 car only - no RV's, commercial trucks, etc.

You can tour the Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge or browse the art galleries and gift shops.

There are great casual restaurants and fine dining all on the island.

A fitness center is located on Rabbitt Road next to Doc Ford's Restaurant. Other options include bike riding (2 bikes free for use included) on the 22+ miles of paths that circle the island. Water sport equipment rentals available on the island include kayaks and stand up paddle boards (several rental facilities to choose from). There's something for everyone.

It's a quick drive to Captiva, which is especially beautiful at sunset.

All of these places and activities are nice but nothing beats the shelling:-)
