About Walt & Debbie

We love the miles of beach, kick back atmosphere and the variety of activities. There's something for everyone and it’s so relaxing. We smile just thinking of Sanibel. It's a great magnet to draw family from across the country for get-togethers. Sanibel Thanksgivings and birthdays have become family traditions. We know you will love it too.

Take a ride to Captiva for sunset dinner. Bike to breakfast. Walk or Run on the beach.

We love the beach and ease of getting to this magical island.

We have a large extended family who enjoy getting together in our three family-owned units at Loggerhead Cay.

Sun & sea and wonderful adventure year-round. :-)

Walt & Debbie purchased this condo in 2003

Why Walt & Debbie chose Sanibel

Sanibel is a fun & relation magnet for family members of all ages - from the toddlers to teen-agers to young adults and our parents. No arm-twisting necessary for a trip to Sanibel!

And it is so easy to get to and so much to do when you are here.

What makes this condo unique

Sanibel Island is a barrier island off the southwest coast of Florida near Fort Myers. The island is about 12 miles long and four miles wide and is known around the world for its fabulous shelling beaches.

Due to Sanibel Island's unique orientation, lying east to west, it acts as a scoop and gathers seashells along its beaches. It’s a secluded paradise where spectacular natural beauty surrounds you. Brush away the beach sand and you will find layers of environmental, historical and cultural depth.

The island is a nature lover's dream come true. Over half of the island has been conserved. The J.N. 'Ding' Darling National wildlife refuge is host to many exotic species of plants and wildlife. The conservation foundation nature center and Bailey Matthew's Shell Museum.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great Spot! Kids had a great time at the beach and pool. We kayaked to the lighthouse and back. Great shelling. Wonderful condo. We'd love to come back. Let us know if you're in the Rocky Mountains.

Great place for family!

We loved the location. The condo was great. Fully stocked kitchen with everything you could possibly need to use.

Loved the pool and ocean beach. Used the 2 bikes all week and then rented 2 for the rest of our family of 4.

Great place for shelling.

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place for shelling that was very close to the beach. We tried all the other beaches on the island and this was the easiest place to find the best shells.

We loved having the bikes and we used them more than we should have and got very sore.

The condo itself is very spacious and well decorated and has a very nice lanai with a nice view of the ocean. We used it several times a day.

The beds and furniture were all very comfortable. The linens were of high quality.

Very well appointed property with accommodating owners.

  • 5 of 5

The condominium unit was accurately described in the listing. We found it clean and well appointed. The owners, Walt & Debbie, were prompt in responding to our request and were extremely easy to work with. They even had complimentary coffee waiting for us which was nice to have on our first morning since we arrived very late. The rental agency was also professional and easy to work with. My wife and three children loved the property and we would certainly stay there again on future visits. A very nice experience all around.

All we needed

  • 4 of 5

Having a beach and pool was important to us, so this was a great fit. The management team was helpful and reached out for anything we needed. The owners were great with questions leading up to our trip. The location was convenient to the shopping area, Captiva and Fort Myers. The condo was in line with the reasonable price. Our only slight complaint would be that the rules for the pool make it a bit too reserved with no food or beverage, music or ball tossing allowed.

Great spot if you have kids!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I went down for a week with our two young kids and had a fantastic time. It was great to have the option of both the pool and the beach to go to and this condo had so much space for all of us and was stocked with everything we could possibly need for the week. It was also so easy to book - the owner Walt answered all our questions and provided helpful recommendations on restaurants and places to go. Hope we get to go back next year!
