We rented from vrbo.com and had done a ton of research on our condo and hotel options on Sanibel Island. We really enjoyed our condo unit but this review is really on the Loggerhead Cay complex since there are many rental options - mgmt company and personal rentals from vrbo and such - for one to choose from. The complex is very nicely laid out and maintained. Every unit has an assigned parking space and the guest spots are relegated to the back of the parking lot so it's nice to come home and know you have a spot to park in. The pool is very large and was very clean. The only wish was some shade at the pool area since it is so hot in the summertime but there were plenty of lounge chairs to sit in around the pool. There is no eating on the pool deck but there are tables right next to the pool should you choose to bring a snack. This keeps the pool area very clean and I thought it was a plus! All of the bldgs face the pool so it would be a relatively quick walk for everyone no matter where you are located in the complex. The walls are not like a cheap hotel in the units and we were pleased that we did not hear our neighbors very loudly for our 2 week trip. There is a walkway to the beach that has a hose to rinse off sandy feet and there is a walkway that leads to and from the parking lot unit that takes you out to the gorgeous beach. Like clockwork every morning, the maintenance staff hosed down all common areas and emptied the trash from the main trash bin where each floors garbage chutes dumped into. They also recycle in two different areas of the complex for those that are good enough to spend the few minutes it takes to separate their trash/recycling. I was very pleased to see this! The beach itself is lovely right at Loggerhead Cay. There is fantastic shelling and a glimpse of dolphins in the water happened more than a few times for us. The tennis courts were maintained too and fairly empty for the summer months. We would definitely return to Loggerhead Cay for it's location at the quiet end of the island, ease to get to and from the Causeway and the lovely complex. Our unit was a wonderful end unit that faced the ocean and we felt fortunate to call it ours for our two week vacation with our two children (ages 5 and &7).
