If you have done Sanibel with a dog over 25+ pounds, you know there are about 6 whopping places that take larger dogs. And factor in that half of them are monthly rentals - and your choices become VERY limited!! Pros: •Lovely, responsive, timely communications from the owner. •Friendly & accommodating •Well stocked kitchen •Nice screened, large patio •Tons of...

My husband and I and our 2 chihuahuas just spent New Years weekend at Cottage 1. It had everything u would need . It was close to everything. If you r thinking of Sanibel this is the place to stay. It is within minutes of the beach and a number of restaurants .

No words can describe the feeling of the inn and the feeling on Sanibel island. My sister and I stayed for 3 nights. We stopped a Publix before we went to the cottage. Plenty of pots, pans, utensils...If you want peace this is your place to be!

We stayed in suite #4. It was in the back which to me was the best. We had a large communal yard int he back with tiki tables set up. There is a screen in patio for each unit. The unit itself was good size with 2 bedrooms and 2 bedrooms. You must rent bikes and cruise around it was...

We just returned from spending 4 nights at the Driftwood Inn and found it just right for our needs. We enjoyed long hikes on the beach daily, public access is right at the end of our street. We also rented bikes for our stay and enjoyed riding every day. The bike trail goes right past the Driftwood. Our cottage was...

Very lovely little cottages near to the beach and to the main Sanibel Island activities. Rent a bike and you'll have access to everything you will want or need. These cottages are dated but are very well maintained and wonderfully clean and functional. Dog friendly for those with furry little family members. Bridget is a dream and will solve any...

My friend and business partner and each of our dogs just spent 4 nights after Christmas at the Driftwood Inn. This two bedroom, 2 bath cottage was ideal for us. It is roomy, the kitchen is very well equipped, it has good Wi-Fi, and there is a great patio to sit out on, have coffee and evening cocktails or meals....

My husband and I just returned from our anniversary trip and spent 4 nights in our cottage at Driftwood Inn. We loved our 2 bedroom 2 bath cottage as it allowed us to have separate bathrooms to get ready in. In off season the rates are totally reasonable. It was nice, roomy and comfortable although the bed was a little...

My parents and I stayed here in December 2013, and we had a great time. At the time, the property needed a little TLC, but it now has new owners. It is neat, fairly clean and well cared for now. We just left a 2 night stay: August 2015. This is a pet friendly property with 4 units. It is...

Good value for the money, especially the 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom in the off season. Nice location to access lots of the fun things to do on the island. Quiet in the bedrooms, but it's on a busy road, so ask for the suites in the back, if you can get them. It comes partially equipped, in that you need...
