Hi, my name is Dave Herrick. My wife Sandy and I live on Lake Winnipesaukee in southern NH. We have been coming to Sanibel for over 40 years. We owned a condo in the 80s which we, unfortunately sold in 1992. Ever since then, we had been hoping to be able to someday re-establish an ownership position on the Island. Our desire is to establish high quality, well maintained units 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 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.
In 2004 we purchased a unit at Oceans Reach Resort and in 2016 we bought a second unit at the Sundial Resort. You can view both these units at
Interestingly, the kids, now married with families and embarking upon their own lives and careers, have rekindled their memories and attraction to the Island.
We are looking forward to this new phase in our life and to sharing our Sanibel homes with our children and with other new and returning visitors.
Dave and Sandy Herrick
