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 Sanibel Island

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

                                                                      This is the second time we have stayed at this same condo and even booked the condo again for next year! We love the location and the huge veranda that overlooks the facility and pool. The beach is only steps away. The condo itself is wonderful with great beach art, beach decor and some of the most comfortable beds we have been in. Did I mention that this condo is immaculate and the staff at Sanibel Siesta are so easy to work with. We were nervous because of the recent hurricane but the condo and grounds were in excellent shape. Absolutely the best place to stay on Sanibel ! Thank you to the owners for allowing us to enjoy your place again.

                                                                      Owner's Response:

It means a lot to us to hear back from our guests on their enjoyable stays; and we try hard to see that the amenities and features in the condo will provide everyone a comfortable and enjoyable stay with us. Our great staff of personnel certainly helps to complement our efforts to do so.

                                                                      Regards,

The owners were very helpful before we arrived. We had a wonderful time! Only negative: There is absolutely no view of the beach or ocean. The photos appear dated and the beautiful trees are a lot larger!

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      Thank you, Patricia, for giving our condominium a top-rating, and knowing that you had a great stay. I am sorry that our tree trimming was not performed as scheduled. This would have given some view of the gulf. With the hurricane preparation and cleanup, afterwards, it put our people somewhat behind. We will try to make up for that if you will let us know of a return trip.

                                                                      Thank you, again,

                                                                      Kelly S.

                                                                      My husband and I stayed here for a week with another couple and found the condo to be just as described in the listing. We asked for the twin beds to be bridged to a king when we made the reservation and although this wasn't in place upon our arrival, the property staff corrected the issue immediately. We had enough space and felt very comfortable during our stay.

                                                                      This was the first stay for all of us on Sanibel and we all found it to be relaxing and enjoyable. The beach was not crowded on any day and the shelling was just as great as advertised. We definitely recommend and hopefully will be back!

                                                                      Owner's Response:

We are very glad you enjoyed your stay in our vacation condo; however disappointed that housekeeping did not have the twin beds joined together in the guest bedroom, as we had requested of them. As you mentioned, they did attend to that immediately, and we hope there was no major inconvenience to you. We have a great staff of personnel that will always go the last mile to see guests are comfortable and enjoy their stay.

                                                                      Thank you for being our guests. We look forward to your return.
