Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in Sanibel Island - BEACH FRONT!

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Beautiful and luxurious living!

Loggerhead Cay unit 514 offers endless water views from this top floor luxury unit. This condo is a Gulf Front unit in building five of Sanibel Island's premier weekly rental destinations. Unit 514 has been completely renovated in an open floor plan style and will not disappoint! We can comfortably sleep six guests with two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a queen size sleeper sofa. Bedrooms are large and private. Unit 514 has plenty of closet space, flat screen TV's and comfortable bedding and towels. The Screened Lanai overlooks the Gulf, is very comfortably appointed, and a great place to enjoy coffee, meals, or a cocktail.

Loggerhead Cay sits on a beautiful world famous shelling beach, offering convenient access to the causeway, bike and walking paths, marinas, and many other attractions. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge occupies almost a third of the island and is home to spectacular migratory birds, manatee, alligators, bobcat, and many species of wildlife. There are several shops, galleries and restaurants nearby, as well as two full service grocery stores. Within the complex, there is a heated swimming pool, tennis courts, shuffleboard, BBQ grills and picnic tables.

This condo features high end furnture throughout. The thoughtfully designed gourmet kitchen is fully equipped for entertaining or just enjoying a meal with one of the best views on the island. Dining table seats six, and enjoys incredible Gulf views - better than island restaurants! The flat screen television disappears into the granite windowsill offering unobstructed views. The master bedroom welcomes you with a comfortable queen mattress, luxury linens, en suite bath, built-in cabinetry, and full sliding doors opening to the glassed/screened lanai overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. The lanai is furnished with an additional dining set and 'stress less' leather recliners. Many an evening has been spent watching the sky change colors with the setting sun. Dolphins are frequently spotted playing in the surf near shore.

We stock the condo with a pack and play, beach towels, and beach chairs. If we don't have it, we can help you find it! You'll find the reserved parking space near the elevator most convenient.

We have been renting our condo for 8 years, we are good at what we do, and look forward to working with you to make your vacation memorable.

Best Vacation Every

  • 5 of 5

My husband and i stayed in this condo in October. We have been to Sanibel several times over the years and have stayed in numerous condos. This byfar was the nicest one yet!! The view of the Gulf is breaktaking. The condo is very spacious and clean. We would certainly recommend this to everyone. We can't wait to return again.

Nice views, less than nicely maintained unit.

  • 3 of 5

The complex is easy to get to once on the island and two minutes away once you are off the toll bridge. The parking spot is convenient to the elevator and there's a short walk to the unit. There are great views of the beach and the ocean from the living room windows and it is nicely furnished. The kitchen is pretty well equipped for meal prep.

Here are a few of the things that we found - all maintenance related. This information and more, with photos, was provided to the owner, immediately when found, by text message. There is no-one locally to perform required maintenance.

The electronic lock on the door didn't work initially. Rain can get to the lock, which had missing buttons, and this may or may not affect operation. After multiple attempts and 15 minutes the lock finally opened.

The rubber weatherization strip across the bottom of the door was detached and being held at one end by a rusty nail. This left a gap of about an inch at the bottom of the door allowing outside air to enter.

The air intake grills for the HVAC system were heavily covered in dust and dirt. Got the vacuum cleaner out to clean them and found that the plastic vacuum canister was filled beyond the fill line. Cleaned the intake grills myself, as well as the ceiling fan blades. Lots of dust and dirt.

The glass-enclosed porch is a nice feature and you can enjoy the beach view in a bug-free and temperature controlled environment. This porch was not a part of the original calculation for cooling demand required of the A/C system. Enjoying the views is a plus, however, the A/C cannot keep up during high temp days. Rain can get in and pools on the floor. The mop bucket in the laundry closet was shattered - making it useless.

When the A/C system is working hard, condensation forms on the supply grills, which then drips on the floor or runs along the wall. The presence of moisture in an A/C system can be where mold and mildew settle in, and this was visible on the grill fins. Respiratory problems often show up under these conditions - and they did for all three of us.

The overhead track for the sliding door to the small bathroom is missing screws and the door could not close - it dragged on the floor at halfway point. No power at the electrical outlet above the sink in the small bathroom - reset button missing. Apparently the ice-maker has not worked for about 12 months. Various lights didn't work.

Proper and regular maintenance should resolve all of these issues.

Gorgeous, comfortable with well-detailed amenities.

  • 4 of 5

We felt like we were home. Loved it. Great beach chairs and plush beach towels provided. Definitely a return-to place. Being on the top floor also provided a more "exclusive" feel. The view was simply stunning.

Loved it...had a great week. The views were awesome.

  • 4 of 5

The condo was clean, well-decorated and had everything we needed. The keyless entry was great... didn't have to worry about keys when we walked on the beach. Erin was very helpful with Island info and suggestions for eating out and shopping. We look forward to our next trip!

Great quiet location!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in Erin's condo in May 2016 and found the overall experience to be highly positive. My wife and I wanted a nice quiet relaxing getaway for our babymoon so it fit perfectly with those requirements, or lack thereof, ha. There are plenty of activities to do nearby, fishing charters, watersports, etc....on the other hand if you want peace and quiet and the perfect setting to catch up on some reading then this is also the place for you. We did take advantage of the bike rentals and also one day on Captiva Cruises. All relevant information provided ahead of time by Erin in her welcome email. This unit has a great lanai overlooking the Gulf , very short walk to the beach, proximity to top area restaurants and just an overall beachy feel. If there was any knock on the unit, it was that it was not fully maintained, and I understand that outside groups do most of this for the units in the area so perhaps owner is not aware. Many lightbulbs were out, closet door in second bedroom not functional, there was leftover rotten trash in one of the beach chairs' coolers and just some overall wear and tear from prior tenants that have no clue how to use teflon cookware (don't use silverware people!)....it was all badly scratched which is a shame since it is good quality Calphalon. Again just oversights and nothing to detract from a lovely week in a great setting. Would rent here again for sure!
