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.

Excellent place to stay in Sanibel

  • 5 of 5

We loved Mike and Carol's condo in Sanibel. We had everything we needed. They have a lovely porch and living area as well a comfortable beds. The pool and grounds are very nice. The beach was lovely, with no crowds and beautiful sunsets. We highly recommend.

Great Condo for our Family Vacation to Sanibel

  • 5 of 5

This was a great condo and had everything we needed to have a perfect vacation. Mike and Carol have this condo decorated beautiful and very well equipped. We loved sitting on the spacious porch and listening to the sounds of the ocean. We were so surprised to find that the beach is only steps away. We also loved going to the pool and using the bikes. The condo also comes with 2 beach chairs, 1 umbrella and a beach car. This condo is a great location and only minutes to all the amazing shops and restaurants on Periwinkle Way. We only ate out one evening at the Mad Hatters which was excellent but pricey. Anyone who rents this condo will be pleasantly surprised. We are looking forward to returning to this condo again next year. We had such a great time!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful comments on your stay. It is always nice to have recognition for our efforts to give our guests a memorable stay. We try to update, as needed; and the beach cart was a new addition to make it easier to "cart" items to the beach. We have an inventory of 5-6 beach chairs, along with a beach umbrella, and some beach/pool items for children's play (and some of us grownups, too). We look forward to having you back as guests.

Perfect Getaway for Family to Sanibel!!

  • 5 of 5

Family of 6 on our first Florida vacation - we had a blast and the condo was amazing!! So much room, quiet and relaxing. The kitchen is great and the private bedrooms were beautiful and spacious. We ranged in age from 18 to 78 and everyone had a great time and loved the accommodations! The artwork and beach motif were lovely. Mike & Carol were wonderful and gave us great lists for eating out and places to see. Highly recommend 208 Sanibel Siesta for everyone visiting Sanibel!!! Can't wait to visit again.

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.

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!
