We decided on a last minute road trip to Sanibel Island and took the recommendation of the local Chamber of Commerce. They are very Knowledgeable and helpful. They assist with a list of the daily vacancy rate and even provided a phone to book a reservation. Called two places and hit the jackpot with Gulf Breeze Cottages. Very charming and...

We spent four nights in Cottage #10 recently. Clean as a whistle, comfortable beds, the kitchen had everything we needed, and a gas grill outside the porch. Perfect for relaxed reading, birding, fishing, chilling on the beach. The cottage faces a neat picnic area that borders the beach. Sea-grape and palm trees surround the porch. Dunes Golf Course was minutes...

First time to the island and the cottages were nice, but too small for me, wife and teenage daughter. Thought they would be a little bigger, but of course its a cottage. Hard to get a feel of size online. Needed a little more kitchen space imo and blinds didn't securely cover window from someone peeping in. We happen to...

These cottages were a wonderful 'escape' for us years ago, and we were so happy to find that they still are. We enjoyed the peace, quiet, and comfort we found in our cottage. We could lunch, brunch, or whatever outside and listen to the surf. It is quaint, now, I suppose but that's not a bad thing. The cottage was...

Cute little free-standing cottages that are well-supplied and nicely maintained. You can hear waves breaking on the beach from your bedroom! This is a great option for those that want to prepare their own meals.
