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...

This cute little collection of cottages is nicely located, just steps from a lovely beach and a nice 2 mile walk to Sanibel's lighthouse. There are a number of amenities included (free WiFi, grills, beach umbrellas/chairs/towels/floats. There is a reasonably priced washer & dryer. The complaint we directed to the manager - a dirty quilt (ewwww!) - was attended to...

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.

It had been 28 years since I last visited Sanibel. I was so glad to see that there were any cottages left to rent at all...and Gulf Breeze turned out to be absolutely lovely. The cottage was well appointed, clean, and with charming style and decor. A perfectly wonderful place to stay, I would recommend Gulf Breeze to anyone wanting...

We spent 8 very happy days at The Gulf Breeze Cottages. Location was excellent. Every morning we got up and walked right into the beach. We loved that they supplied chairs and towels (and it looked like sand toys for kids) and that we could rent bikes directly from them. For us, access to the Gulf was a priority, but...

First found the Gulf Breeze cottages in the mid 80's. Off the beaten path, clean and relaxing. Just what the Sanibel experience calls for. Started out as a couple, had Apt #2 the first trip. Later, subsequent trips called for larger quarters when the first, then the second child arrived. Our last several visits were in #10 which has the...
