Great location and very spacious with an open floor plan and great balcony that wraps the entire unit. Balcony is also partially screened with a ceiling fan for dining outdoors. There are two bedrooms and bathrooms. Unit has a w/d and parking underneath. There is a nice size pool and beautiful landscaping on the grounds. Beach was wonderful for shelling.

We love Sanibel Cottages. We have been coming here for 30 years at the same time every year. The resort is beautifully kept and Kevin is extremely helpful. The cottages have everything that you need and are right off the beach. I think someone should have a conversation with Martha she is very rude. She also habitually parks in the...

We have been Sanibel Cottages owners for 30 years, and our children were toddlers when we purchased. Now, our grandchildren are the toddlers! Sanibel Cottages has been the ONLY place we never miss visiting in the summer, and we have loved the other families there, the staff, the beautiful accommodations, and the stunning beach. It doesn't get any better than...

Very large condo with huge living area and two decks (one screened). Steps to the gulf and shell filled beach. Nice pool, never crowded. Felt far away but a close bike ride to shops, restaurants, and parks. Highly recommend!

We spent a few days here and can honestly say that it was everything we expected, a bit of old style Florida cottage living absent the concrete jungle you see on so much waterfront in the state. If your taste is a relaxed atmosphere with a congenial staff their to help when needed this is for you, I highly recommend...

We traded thru interval. Very spacious, well decorated and equipped. The balconies are huge, one screened and one open. Convenient to everything; beautiful grounds and beach. One of the nicest condos we've ever stayed at in the last 10 years. Staff not available 24/7 as it's a small unit and they don't change towels or being supplies during the week...

We absolutely love this place. The location as well as the cottage layout makes for a relaxing visit. The grounds as well as the units are clean and updated often .Do tend to agree with previous guests concerning the office, not the friendliest , but we just stay out of there!
