We found GBC last minute when our vacation plans allowed us to spend a few days on Sanibel. March 2017 . Previously we had rented condos for our stays. The great thing was availability for less than 7 days as most of the condos rent. We had one of the efficiencies, bed, small table and chairs, cubby kitchen and LR...

Our cottage was small, but very clean and comfortable and just steps from the beach. The king sized bed was very comfortable, and we enjoyed our stay. Downsides: 1. Very little space between the bed and the closet. 2. No maid service 3. No possibility to exchange our towels over the weekend(although you can every other day during the week)....

We stayed in the Beach House 2/18-2/25. There was plenty of room for our two families totaling 8. The staff brought fresh towels every other day and were very helpful with any of our requests. Great beach location and access!

My husband and I stayed at the Gulf Breeze Cottages at the last minute. Jimmy had a cottage available just off the beach, and it couldn't have been more perfect for us. We enjoyed having the cottage so that we could have a refrigerator and cook meals if we wanted. We ended up cooking in and going out. The kitchen...

Tucked away between larger multi-story apartments, the cottages are a great get-away. Maintenance guys are busy sprucing things up all day. Simple office and pretty grounds. Well-supplied kitchens -toaster, large frig, etc. plenty of cooking and eating utensils. Bring your own toiletries. Bar soap provided. Beach towels provided. Very quick walk to beach. Great shelling! Would definitely return. Competitive pricing.

Just what you are looking for. A quiet intimate experience. Cottages are clean and well maintained. They have overflow parking for small boats under 20ft. Very slow on the island before Christmas. Perfectly located between Sanibel and Captiva. About a7+ mile bike ride to get anywhere but a relatively easy ride in cooler weather.

We had never been to Sanibel before. So I relied on reviews from Trip Adviser. This is a wonderful place, it is very, very clean. Yes it is not ultra modern. But I would not change a thing.

We have been staying at the Gulf Breeze Cottages since the 1990's and have always, without exception, had the very best experience, in every way. Over the years, improvements, updates, and replacements have been made and we are always amazed at how "our" place remains so ideal. If you are looking for a country club atmosphere, with a pool and...
