About the property

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.

Loggerhead Cay

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay in Unit #514. Everything was in good working order, except the sliding doors to the outside in the lanai. Very difficult to open or close. The view to the Gulf front was wonderful. We loved hearing the waves and watching sunrises and sunsets. Could have used some inexpensive soap dishes by the bathroom sinks; otherwise, we had everything we needed. We would definitely rent again!

Our favorite place to escape for fun, tranquility, and gorgeous views!

  • 4 of 5

Sanibel is our 'go-to place' for relaxation and enjoyment. We have been many times, over many years, and stayed in various complexes and units on the island. We have stayed in this condo several times, but this was our first in 2 yrs, and the first with the new owner. This is our favorite, if for no other reason than the beautiful views. The condo is spacious, nicely furnished, clean, and well equipped.

We did find a few minor issues this visit. We noticed that the A/C does not keep the main bedroom as cool as the rest of the unit. Due to the humidity outside at night, we did not keep the sliding doors to the lanai open, but the bedroom got a bit warm and stuffy, despite turning the fan to run all the time. The calphalon cookware has seen a lot of wear, despite not being that old. Perhaps some renters have not used proper care in cooking and cleaning with it, a simple necessity for non-stick cookware. We did also suggest the addition of some regular height folding chairs for the beach, as it is very difficult for people with physical limitations, such as knee problems, to get down and up from those low beach chairs.

The new entry lock does not contain all of the buttons that the directions mention, which we discovered when trying to lock the unit per those instructions. It was not a problem, as we just locked the door and pulled it shut behind us (or you can use the key to lock it from the outside), but it should be noted that the instructions on the door are not correct. Otherwise, that new entry lock worked much better than the older one.

One other thing that would be very helpful is to have some simple instructions on getting regular network channels using the XFINITY. For those of us who do not have it, and finding 3 remotes for one television, with no instructions, it took a while to figure it out, although we finally did. While there is plenty to do and we can certainly enjoy the unit without television, on occasion, we did want to have access to it.

Any issues we found would not keep us from returning. There is so much to love about the unit and about the location on Sanibel. Great fun activities, the greatest view, the perfect spot for reading and relaxing, and very peaceful. We plan to enjoy it again in the future, as it is definitely our kind of 'go-to' place.

A great place to stay! Fanstastic ocean views and convenient to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay and would go back. Very nice condo, well furnished for most anything/anybody and well maintained. Although we didn't use the TV, the idea of hiding it to keep open the gorgeous picture window is excellent.

Only minor complaints are there is no statement in info sent about what one should bring that's not included---like Kleenex, bath soap. Guess we're supposed to know that? We also had trouble figuring out how to operate the convection oven. While a nice feature, it would have been nice to have some instructions nearby to save some agonizing moments.

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.
