About Coquina Beach 1A - Owner

My wife and I had been coming here for over 25 years prior to purchasing our dream condo in the summer of 2009. We love this Island and it seems that our children and grandchildren will follow in our footsteps. We hope that you enjoy Sanibel as much as we do!

Coquina Beach 1A - Owner purchased this condo in 2009

Why Coquina Beach 1A - Owner chose Sanibel

We looked at a number of different properties, but Coquina 1A attracted us for a variety of reasons. The complex is small, family oriented and has a lush tropical feel to it. Our unit is in building #1 directly facing the ocean with gulf views from every room! You have access to a private beach path directly from the door in the lanai that takes you to the beach in 30 seconds or less.... You are literally as close to the ocean as you can possibly get!!!! The beach goes on for miles and is simply beautiful! Please see our web site for more information found in the 'links to more information' section below.

What makes this condo unique

Quiet side of Island, but very close to shopping, bike paths, golf and great restaurants! In fact, some of those restaurants are within walking distance... For golfers, there are two nearby golf courses with one less than a minute away (see Satellite Map view and/or CB1A's web page found under 'links to more information' below).

Guestbook comments from the manager

Ray & Kathy,

Just have to tell you how we've fallen in love with your condo, location, & the island! This is a beautiful condo & so well appointed. We lack for nothing! Thank you for letting us rent it. We are hearing from friends that our home in Fish Creek is currently getting 4-6" of heavy, wet snow. If you had availability, we'd stay another week! Thanks again. Jim & Pat

Stunning location and condo! Definitely returning!

  • 5 of 5

This property is a wonderful find. We have been to Sanibel several times and this condo is the best equipped and best situated one we have stayed at. We loved it so much we have already booked for next Christmas! My husband and I stayed for a week over Christmas with our 3 "kids" who are in their late teens and early twenties. The condo is spacious and immaculately clean. The view is even better than the pictures show. The beach is only a very short number of steps directly from the lanai. It was so easy to stroll back from the beach to grab a cold drink or a bite to eat. Sunrise views from the lanai every morning were incredible. The lanai was very private since foot traffic in front of it is was very minimal. Everything we needed for our stay was provided for. We ate in every day - the kitchen is equipped with more than everything we needed. The storage cupboard in the lanai has a large variety of beach items including high quality beach chairs, two excellent umbrellas, 2 coolers, beach toys etc. We really enjoyed the use of the two bikes as well! The beds are comfortable, the bathrooms updated and spacious, the wifi works very well (all of us could use it at the same time and the speed was still good!), the condo is bright and has lovely decor. The grounds are beautifully kept and the pool was heated to a great temperature. The owners were great to deal with and very helpful. They clearly have pride in their condo and have gone out of their way to ensure that guests have a wonderful experience. Knowing that an on-island company was available in case any issues arose was helpful for us to know (although we had no issues!), and check-in with Royal Shell was extremely smooth. We had a wonderful time and hope to return more than once!!

Beautiful Gulf view. Very clean, quiet complex.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. It was relaxing and peaceful. Walk right onto the beach to see the beautiful sunrise over Fort Myers. My only complaint was having to put away the dishes from the prior guests and finding out at the end of our stay. That there were two additional beach towels left in the dryer. Besides those very minor issues. I would stay on this property again in the future.

Fabulous Stay at Coquina Beach 1A!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have been vacationing on Sanibel for 12 years now, and this is by far one of the best condos we've stayed in! We do a lot of cooking and the kitchen had absolutely everything we needed and more. The storage locker on the lanai was also very well stocked. It's great to have beach chairs, umbrellas, and beach towels waiting for you when you arrive, and the 2 bikes were a nice surprise! I loved having coffee out on the lanai and watching the sunrise each morning, followed by a 30 second walk to the beach. Everything about this unit was perfect and we'll definitely be returning. Thank you for sharing your beautiful condo!

Best condo on the island!

  • 5 of 5

Coquina 1A is the best, fully equipped condo that we have stayed at on the island & we have been vacationing on Sanibel for 30 years. Since finding Coquina 1A, we have continued to rent year after year. The owners, Ray & Kathy are wonderful people & continually update & add amenities for their renters use. The addition of two bicycles this year was an added bonus that we truly enjoyed & appreciated. There is no sense of looking for anywhere else to rent. This is the place for us and we reserve for the following year each time before we leave. Thank you for making our vacation each year a totally pleasant one. Looking forward to our 2017 stay!

Another wonderful week in Coquina Beach 1-A!

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from my 4th stay in this great condo! I enjoy relaxing vacations at the beach and Sanibel is a good place for that. My friend and I spent the week biking, shopping, and hanging out at the beach--what could be better? This condo has all the necessary beach equipment and chairs, a fully-featured kitchen (even tho we are not cooks!), and is so very comfortable with lovely decor. The owner is very invested in making the condo a comfortable and inviting place for his guests--thank you Ray!
