About Walt & Debbie

Our large extended family has several condos at Loggerhead Cay. We love its amenities, beautiful landscaping, location and accessibility. We gather from across the country for reunions and holidays on the Island. Everyone from old to young loves Sanibel. No arm-twisting necessary! Toddlers, youngsters, teenagers, adults and seniors agree, Sanibel makes for a Dream Vacation!

Walt & Debbie purchased this condo in 2005

Why Walt & Debbie chose Sanibel

Sanibel has a rare, kick-back charm and precious natural environment. No high-rises, no traffic lights, but sophisticated shops and extensive choices of family to fine dining. Relaxation, 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 magical.

Fishing is phenomenal, tennis is great, the beach is a daily magnet for shelling, walking and running, kayaking is a hoot, swimming is relaxing and sunsets are breathtaking. It makes a lot of great times to dream about.

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 beautiful and peaceful. And the beach is unforgettable.

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 and HD-TV makes Thanksgiving football a hit.

We love it here and hate to leave. :-(

Great rental for families

  • 4 of 5

Well appointed condo in a centralized location. Steps to a nice, CLEAN pool which the kids enjoyed. Just a few more steps to the moderately populated white sand beach.....couldn't ask for much more in terms of proximity to water. Condo was comfortable and clean.

Huge pluses:

-Beach towels provided.

-2 bikes provided........bikes are ~$50-65 per week at Billy's so this is a nice added benefit. This part of the island is best accessed via bikes so this was great.

Tennis courts were nice as was the shuffleboard court. Overall, this is a nice condo in a good location for families.

Great beach -Great condo

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming to Sanibel for years & this is one of the nicest condos we've rented. It is clean & spacious & had everything we needed. The kitchen was nicely furnished. The owners have a supply of beach towels & beach chairs for your use & even provide 2 bicycles (great bonus). Beautiful view overlooking the Olympic size pool & courtyard with the beach visible as well. We needed Pet Friendly so this condo was perfect. We will definitely return!!

No Better Sanibel Spot Than This

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely loved my stay at Loggerhead Cay. What a great place to escape to on Sanibel. The location was ideal, having the beach steps away was such a plus - this condo was the best value I've found in the area, and we've been traveling to the greater Ft. Myers area for many years.

Thanks so much for letting us enjoy your beautiful condo. Bill and friends really enjoyed the fishing right outside our door and I was happy to keep track of them from the beach. The condo was so beautiful and the community is so nice and we can't wait to get back there again.

A Dream!

  • 5 of 5

I took a week vacation with my fiance and another couple and it was one of our best vacations. The beach was beautiful and it's was so nice to also have the pool there if we wanted to change it up. We were able to cook our own dinners a few nights thanks to the fully stocked kitchen, and then we actually used the condo's guestbook as a guide to pick out restaurants for the nights we went out.

Thank you so much for letting us stay and we can't wait to go back next year!
