Seahorse cottages are the perfect place to relax in Sanibel. It is actually a small motel with several units,differing in size. They are immaculate and nicely decorated , well equipped so that you can cook and eat in if you wish. The beach is a short walk down a quiet street- a great restaurant is a few minutes away. We...

The cottages are attached- each has its own deck with tables, chairs etc. We had a one bedroom unit that was cozy and extremely clean (Clorox clean!) much appreciated after the super bugs of this winter. The location couldn't be more perfect- walk one way to Tarpon Cove walk the other to the Gulf. Each unit comes with beach chairs...

Seahorse Cottages was not as we had imagined it would be. These are apartments (not cottages) in the middle of the block. Our Unit #1 was dark and dingey, although very clean. Three large upholstered black chairs and a black and dark brown bedspread give you the picture. The only cheerful spots in the apartment were the shell lamp and...

It's the perfect place for a couple or a small family. The cottages are well-appointed (you'll want to shop for groceries at Walmart or Publix on the mainland), and the Wi-Fi is better than in our hometown. There is no maid service, and we loved that ! There is a washer/dryer on site ($ 1.00/load is a suggested donation), and...
