We spend 10 days at Periwinkle Cottages.The four cottages are located at the very quiet western end of the Island in a residential road. Our cottage was nicely furnished and the beds had very comfortable mattresses. Mark, the landlord, is very helpful and wide open for extra wishes and recomandations concerning daily trips and Restaurants. The beach, just steps away...

Currently on Day 5 of our 6 day stay at this delightful property, and wish we could stay on for the month! Found Periwinkle Cottages when I was searching for a comfy & quiet birthday getaway for wife and me (we have 5 kids 14-24), and it couldn't be more perfect for what we were looking for in a beachside...

We love Periwinkle cottages - We stayed, as always, in the Ibis cottage. We love the comfort ( the bed is great), the convenience of having a bicycle, beach umbrella, chairs and towels available at no extra cost, and the location on the quiet side of the island. I would recommend this cottage (and we have to our friends) to...

We loved this "old Florida" charming efficiency cottage near the beach and Ding Darling, etc. It was decorated nicely, very clean and neat. The bed was very comfortable. It was very small, but quite adequate for us. It had a small mini kitchenette with small refrigerator, microwave, toaster and coffee pot, plates, utensils, etc. (No stove or sink, but we...

This was the second time my husband and I stayed at the Periwinkle Cottages of Sanibel. This time, we were at the Heron (with 1 bedroom only, as they reserve the second one for larger parties). I loved the direct view onto the adjacent wild pond from our large bedroom window. Every day around noon, we observed a heron couple...

Our vacation as first timers to Sanibel was outstanding. Our stay at Periwinkle Cottages exceeded our expectations. All questions answered by owner quickly prior to booking. Rental agreement, deposit receipt with directions and helpful hints arrived by mail several days later. Upon arrival our parking space was clearly marked and our immaculate cottage was exactly as described. Excellent quality beach...

My husband, sister-in-law and I stayed in the Heron cottage for too brief a holiday. We loved the view of the pond with its young resident alligator and two nesting pairs of Yellow Crowned Night Heron.

Booked through the owner of the cottages. Paid her by credit card over the phone. A month later she sent me a email saying that she missed us. I booked in March for our May 15th travel.

“These are cottages. We liked Heron very much...but it is a 2 bedroom. Others are cheaper. Those that are one bedroom.”

“Next time we would like to reserve one of the one bedroom cottages which are very roomy and nice looking on the inside. Everything else there was booked when we made reservations and were just glad to get the efficiency but for a week's stay one of the larger cottages would be better.”
