About Jeffrey & Gretchen Koontz

My wife's family has been vacationing on Sanibel Island for the last 3 decades. Now, their children and grandchildren enjoy Sanibel as much as they did 30 years ago.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your condo was tastefully decorated, with those French doors leading into the large-sized bedroom. The ambiance was unsurpassed throughout the entire place. Whatever we needed was at our fingertips. The easy access to the pool and beach was welcome. This was likely our fifth or sixth stay Sanibel, and your place was the best. Thank you for sharing your home with me and my wife. I don't know whether we will return to Sanibel next winter, but if we do, your place will be our first choice.

Perfect location and wonderful condo!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first VRBO and unit #251 has set the bar extremely high! My family of 4 was a little nervous about visiting Florida in July, but the experience was wonderful. The condo was in a perfect location. The pool and the beach just steps away helped us beat the heat when we were outdoors, while the air conditioned unit made our evenings enjoyable. The unit had everything that we could possibly need - beach towels, beach chairs, fully equipped kitchen, washer and dryer, screened in lanai, television and WiFi... the list could go on.

We chose this rental originally because of the reviews people had left regarding both the unit and the owners - Gretchen and Jeff. As you can tell we were not disappointed. The owners were both very helpful and quick to answer all of our questions both before and during our stay. I hope that we are able to make it back to Florida in the future and we will definitely want to book our stay in this lovely condo again.

Very nice!

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week here with my wife and father. The complex in beautiful with a resort-like feel. The unit was clean and very well equipped including beach chairs and an umbrella. The beach is excellent with great shelling! Owner was very easy to work with. Sanibel is a beautiful place...can't wait to return and would not hesitate to stay here again!

Great condo and amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Loggerhead Cay unit 251! The pool and beach access was convenient and the owners have a ton of amenities that make it even more convenient, like beach chairs, umbrella, toys, and even shelling tools. We didn't have to rent or buy these items which was really nice. The unit itself is clean and comfortable. We loved sitting on the patio at night. Restaurants are a short drive away. It is a very family friendly complex. We would definitely rent this unit all over again. Sanibel was a perfect, relaxing vacation for us and our two daughters (10 and 6). Thanks Jeffrey and Gretchen!!

Awesome!!! Phenomenal!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our beach condo at Loggerhead Cay! The owners (Gretchen and Jeff Koontz), response time to my e-mails, texts, or phone calls were answered so quickly and efficiently I was in a state of shock! We had a small issue with one of the toilets. A plumber showed up and so did Gretchen just to make sure everything was okay! The condo had everything that we needed from beach towels to linens to pots and pans!! We will most certainly be back! We loved the pool, the lanai which had plenty of beach toys and floats for our grandson, to the very close distance to the beach. We just got home and already can't wait to go back!

Beautiful beach, loved the ground level beach themed condo!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Loggerhead Cay Unit 251 was wonderful!! The ground floor condo was perfect for our family of 5. There was ample space. We used the tennis courts and rented bikes. The condo was clean and nicely decorated. We made use of the beach towels, boogie boards, chairs and toys from the walk out lanai. Kitchen was nicely updated. Bathrooms clean. We loved the location being close to the pool. Loggerhead Cay is in a convenient location and the beachfront is beautiful. Overall fantastic week! Gretchen and Jeff were very prompt with responses our questions. Everything was smooth. Wonderful, relaxing vacation!! We would definitely recommend.

Wonderful Condo and Location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd trip to Sanibel Island and Loggerhead Cay was by far our favorite location. Condo #251 is perfect for those with kids.... walk right off the screened in porch to head to the pool and/or beach. The condo is very roomy and quiet, we never heard another neighbor! The condo is fully stocked with everything you could ever want or need, and the dedicated parking spot out front was a definite plus! The owners were absolutely wonderful to work with and if we return again next year we would definitely stay at this condo! Thank you for a wonderful week!
