On our previous visit to Sanibel Island, my husband and then 5 year old son stayed at the Sunset Resort (which we loved). After seriously considering returning to the resort, we chose a condo rental option instead, based on the idea of wanting extra space with our now 7 year old and 1 year old sons. We were extremely happy with our decision, which offered us all the amenities of a hotel, but with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a full kitchen , a screened in deck and a nice sized living room area. Loggerhead Cay features a large, heated pool, tennis courts, shuffle board, well-cared for grounds and is located directly on the beach. I LOVED falling asleep to the sound of the waves and being met with an amazing view of the gulf in the morning. True, no one is coming in to make your bed for you, but when you consider how much a large hotel suite would cost compared to a condo rental....I was more than happy to make my own bed. They supplied us with everything we needed (the rentals are professionally managed) and the rooms were beautifully decorated and clean. One caveat: Some of the condos have not been updated, while others have been completely redone. Ours looked brand new, while we heard from other guests that theirs looked several decades old. Also, there are numerous buildings and some are set further away from the water than others. Ours was the closest to the gulf, which we knew ahead of time. When looking for these rentals, be sure to view the photos presented online of each condo. Some units also allow pets, ours did not and ditto on the smoking. Our unit looked exactly like the photos on the Trip Advisor and VIP rental agency sites.
