We have stayed at Loggerhead Cay condos for 14 consecutive years. We have tried 4 different condos and have had friends stay in many others. Every condo is the same basic floor plan (with the exception of a couple of the gulf front ones) so basically you need to look at each unit for beds and decor. It is one... More

We stayed at unit 184 rented through Sanibel Holiday and loved everything about it. It was a 2 bed, 2 bath that appeared to be updated throughout. Beautiful ocean views front the living room, very spacious with modern appliances and furnishings. The huge screened-in lanai/balcony was amazing, even in hot, humid August with the ceiling fan on. Had some amazing... More

My wife's family has been traveling to Sanibel & Captiva since before the causeway, they accessed the island on a ferry. So it was a natural to have our family reunion on the island. We had 40 family members all staying at Loggerhead Cay and it turned out to e such a joy for all. My Wife & I rented... More

We stayed last Jan. 2014 unit 403. I agree with former comments condo well equipped but dated. Master bath sink cabinet falling apart, had to have my husband open sliding doors to lanai as they are extremely hard to move, carpet smells and looks funky. Beach chairs rusted and unusable. On brighter side location was great, can not see ocean... More

Rented unit 452 from Royal Shell and found the unit to be in perfect condition upon arrival. We had one small issue with the dishwasher and the staff at Royal Shell were there in less than an hour. 452 is updated and well appointed for a one bedroom. Great kitchen and nice porch to enjoy your coffee in the morning.... More

We stayed in the same rental condo there for 8 years. It was less clean each time we visited. In all the years we visited the same bedspreads were on the master bed and had never been washed or changed. We arrived several times while it was being cleaned and we never saw the pre ads being changed. Our last... More

Can see gulf and pool! Great lanai on every unit. Very clean. Large units. Beach is amazing. 10000 shells outside your condo. Rent a bike or walk everywhere. Sanibel is beautiful for couples or families.

Overall, complex was nice and well maintained. This unit was described as having a partial ocean views. Not quite.... Unit was well equipped, nice furniture, and updated kitchen. Unfortunately, all of this was on top of very dated and dirty carpet. There was a funny smell too.... Bathrooms also are in need of a remodel. For a price of this... More

Have stayed for the last three years. Love it! Comfortable, 3rd floor unit, clean, neat, quiet and very well decorated. Easy walk to the beach (10mins) with white sand abounding. The pool is, large with lots of chairs. We usually stay just after the "Spring Breakers," go home! Peaceful quiet and just wonderfully warm. Looking forward to another stay this... More
