About Walt & Debbie
We have a large extended family who enjoy getting together in our three family-owned units at Loggerhead Cay.
Walt & Debbie purchased this Condo in 2004
Why Walt & Debbie chose Sanibel Island
Sanibel has a rare, kick-back charm and precious natural environment. No high-rises, no traffic lights. Just sun & sea and wonderful adventure year-round. :-)
What makes this Condo unique
Thanksgiving has become a Sanibel family tradition, and Christmas on the island is so magical. We love to bike all over - even up to Capitva for lunch at the Bubble Room. Dinner at the Mucky Duck is always a treat. Kayaking around the Bay is so beautiful and peaceful. And the beach is unforgetable. The kitchen is fully-equipped for Thanksgiving dinner, and it's great to have the laundry so handy. The WIFI and phones make it easy to keep up with the world. We love it here and hate to leave. :-(

Great view, great location
We simply could not have asked for a better view from the screened-in lanai. Literally steps from the beach and very close to the main shops and restaurants in Sanibel. Kitchen was well appointed with the necessities for cooking, etc. Beach chairs, towels and bikes were a nice touch. Parking was convenient. Check in/out was simple and leasing office was helpful and responsive when we had questions. Only downsides? The master bed was not very comfortable and was noisy when we shifted. But a small detail in an otherwise wonderful stay. We would definitely stay here again!
Location, Location, Location
Well appointed condo in close proximity to beach, in heart of Sanibel. Condo has great view of sunrises, and easy path to beach. Everything you need is here, from beach chairs and umbrella to bicycles. We lacked nothing; dishwasher. clothes washer/dryer, all cooking utensils necessary. Screened lanai offered outdoor seating with no bugs to worry about. WE would definitely consider this unit for a future stay.
Beautiful condo. Gracious owner
Everything was wonderful. Had three days of no access to elevator which was a challenge but we made do. I can’t think of anything that could have been added to make our stay more perfect.
We loved the seashell beach, large pool, & tennis courts. Condo was a great size & had an amazing view. Washer & dryer in unit, bikes, king size bed in master & enclosed patio to keep out mosquitoes were big plusses.
We did wish the master bdrm had a "real" door rather than an accordion style one. It was challenging to put toddler down for a nap, that style door doesn't seal away noise. Full size bed in guest room must be replaced. There is a noticeable dip in the middle, not comfortable. No one cared for the beach chairs provided. They tipped back too far, 2 were a bit rusty, & tricky to adjust. We also would've liked bigger TV's in the living room & master bedroom. Lastly, the dishwasher was very loud.
Location is this condo's best asset. Sanibel is beautiful. Experiencing kayaking through the mangrove forest was worth the trip.
This is a very nice condo. The views are terrific.
We apparently came during the rainy season and had a day to spend indoors. I'm so glad there were games and puzzles. We managed to put a puzzle together during a pretty severe storm that lasted for hours.
The island is lush and quiet compared to Fort Myers Beach. We found some excellent restaurants. Shelling was great since we did have some severe storms. The pool was very nice for the days that we couldn't spend in the gulf due to the waves.
I give this condo and location a big thumbs up.
Beautiful beachfront view
Clean spacious 2 bedroom condo with wonderful views of the Gulf and beach from the screened in porch. Perfect place to stay for 4 adults -two aged 50 plus, one age 18 and one 21. Easy beach access, large kitchen, laundry facilities. Close bike ride to the best of Sanibel. Property management team friendly and "can do". Cant wait to return.
Sanibel is known for its World-Class shelling beaches. Enjoy the salt-water Gulf or the large heated Loggerhead Cay pool - excellent for both children and lap swimming. Tennis & shuffleboard also on site. Walk, bike or drive to other activities on the island ..... or even bike to Captiva for lunch if you are ambitious.
