Hi, I'm David!

Hi, my name is Dave Herrick. My wife Sandy and I live north of Boston and we have owned this unit since 2004. We have been coming to Sanibel for over 30 years. We owned a condo in the 80s which we unfortunately sold in 1992. Ever since then, we have been hoping to be able to someday re-establish an ownership position on the Island. Our desire is to establish a high quality, well maintained unit to which our guests will want to return to, year after year.

During the 80s we made Sanibel our annual vacation, usually over the Holidays to coincide with school vacations for our three boys. Sometimes we had Christmas trees and boats in tow. Sometimes it was grandparents joining us to escape the Boston cold. On every occasion, it was a trip we all looked forward to with excitement and anticipation. My kids learned to swim on Sanibel. This is where they saw their first alligator in the wild. We took daily bike rides on the miles of bike paths and explored the wildlife at the numerous sanctuaries. Sometimes we just walked the beach at low tide and talked about whatever interesting shells or other sealife we found. Overall, Sanibel became a very special place in our lives. It became a place we all enjoyed together; a difficult concept to achieve in a diverse and growing family. During the nineties, we missed our southern sojourns, but with the kids involved in school activities and moving on to college, it became increasingly difficult to schedule family trips. Interestingly, with the kids now through school and with kids of their own, they have rekindled their own memories and attraction to the Island.

We have enjoyed this new phase in our lives and look forward to continuing to share our Sanibel home with our family and with other new and returning visitors.

Dave and Sandy Herrick

Our stay at 301 Tarpoon Beach was beyond our expectations. The owners of this condo went above and beyond to provide us with an environment of comfort that made us feel welcomed and at home. The condo was equiped with everthing a person would need on a vacation. The beach was within a short walking distance where we enjoyed the sun, sand and shells on a daily basis. We would not hesitate to rent this condo again through Vacation Home Rentals. Checking in and out was a breeze and we were provided with a packet of information that allowed us to get involved with activities and shopping while we were on the island. As the week came to a close, we were sad to leave Tarpon Beach 301, but we left with a smile and thoughts of returning someday.
