About Mike and Carol Davis

We live in Brentwood, TN (Nashville area) and have been long-time fans of beautiful Sanibel Island; in fact, we were married there. We collect sea shells, which is just one of the many reasons that we love coming to Sanibel and have shells displayed in the dining room curio cabinet for guests' enjoyment, as well as our own. Carol paints, and has several of her sea shore paintings in the unit.

We purchased condominium #208 for the porch privacy and view, and like to continually update the unit for guests' enjoyment, as well as our own.

Why Mike and Carol Davis chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

This AAA rated gulf-front complex has always maintained the beautiful grounds and tropical foliage that make this beachfront complex such a paradise to stay at. Unit #208, a 5-star rated condo, is continually upgraded and maintained, making this a wonderful 'getaway home' for you and your family to enjoy.

What makes this condo unique

Unit #208 is close to all amenities in this beachfront complex: a large (heated) swimming pool, tennis courts, shuffleboard, laundry facility, a private beach, administrative office - all within steps of the condo. The condo has a private lanai that doesn't face multiple condo porches. Also, a top-rated island restaurant is next door, and just a block away is a beautiful 18-hole public golf course and club house restaurant. All of the other wonderful island restaurants and shopping areas are conveniently-close to our condominium; however if you prefer to dine-in, our condominium has a fully-furnished kitchen. The barbecue grills are also adjacent to our condo building Beach chairs and beach umbrella are furnished; and in case you want to bicycle on the miles of paved bicycle paths, bicycles are available for rent at the office.

Superb Condo Accommodation For Family Getaway To Sanibel

  • 5 of 5

This condo was everything promised and more - delightful ambiance (Carol's art work), extremely comfortable and well equipped, super staff and service, and owners who do everything to enhance one's stay. The beach, pool, bike paths, and tennis courts were steps from our door. In our case the condo accommodated two adult couples plus a mother and baby and a wonderful time was had by all. We cannot recommend Carol and Mike Davis's lovely Sanibel home too highly.

Great!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, with our little Cock-a-poo dog, stayed at 208 Sanibel Siesta for a little over three weeks in January 2016. The condo was beautifully appointed with a comfortable living area, well-equipped kitchen, and a relatively private screened-in lanai that had views of the Gulf. We were especially pleased to find this lovely condo so close to the dog-friendly beaches of Sanibel Island. Our pup enjoyed walking the beach and the paths on the island with us, as well as the many dog-friendly outdoor patios of local restaurants.

The office staff at Sanibel Siesta were such a pleasure, very helpful, and the maintenance staff quickly dealt with a few minor mechanical issues that came up. The laundry room was kept very clean, and had several washers and dryers to use.

The owner's artwork added a nice personal touch to the condo, and it was a pleasure to deal with Michael, the owner, who genuinely wanted to make sure we enjoyed our stay. He was very responsive via email and phoned us while there to make sure all was ok. The condo has beautiful granite countertops in the baths and kitchen. The central air conditioning system worked beautifully when needed, and was very quiet. The WIFI Internet connection worked fine. The bed in the master bedroom was so comfortable, allowing for great sleeping, either with the slider open to the lanai, or with the A/C when needed. Also a bonus, was being able to watch beautiful sunrises from the bedroom due to the slightly east-facing view of the beach. We loved this place and our stay there!

Fall Break Getaway

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a great time! The unit was cozy and comfy. The on site management staff were more than accommodating. Their highest priority is making sure you have the best stay as possible! We rented bikes right on property and pretty much rode them everywhere. The well-maintained bike paths make the two wheeled excursion a must! We were just a very short walk from the some of the best shell hunting we've ever experienced on the island. We would definitely stay here again!

WONDERFUL!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL...with the small exception of some Internet issues, which I am told will be soon remedied. My family and I had a WONDERFUL stay at this amazing condo! Perfect location, comfortable and spacious accommodations, a large and comfortable screened-in deck, 2 nicely separated bedroom/bath areas, very close to beautiful beach, VERY nice office staff, and a WARM pool just a few feet away! The condo also had an outdoor storage area where we found beach chairs and an umbrella for the beach. When we found that the umbrella was broken and mentioned it to the office staff, they gave us a brand new one. (By the way, we left two inflatable rafts in that storage area which may be there for the next people to use.) :) We also LOVED the island. We biked to a delicious, original ice cream place and enjoyed a wonderful bookstore. The owner of this condo was also VERY helpful in many ways (for instance, he sent us a shell identification chart and a list of restaurants in the area that our kids might like). We hope to return soon! (To explain about our Internet issue, my husband needed to use the Internet for work and it didn't work for him consistently. This was a frustration but once I mentioned it to the owner of the condo, he spoke with the office about it and he says it is now being remedied, so my guess is that this will not be a problem for future guests at all.)

Best Mother's Day Present

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent one of our best time away from home at this beautiful condo walking distance from the beach. Everything was perfect about the place it was really exactly how it looks in picture. Well kept. Overall experience the best including the accommodation and personal recommendations about places to eat from owner. Great place for families looking to have a relax and safe time. My 3 yrs old had a blast playing with sand and running after the beach birds. Loved it! My Mother's Day this year was an unforgettable one. 😎✅
