We stopped in off season, for an overnight stay on the shelling beach! We could not have been happier with the room we had. Great bed, pleasant sitting area, nicely appointed kitchen and bath. The front porch was our place to chill! The host was nice and accommodating, too. In all, I want to go again, though I would rise... More

We stayed in unit number two, it is a nice and cozy one bedroom cottage with a kitchenette, the pullout sleeper sofa, and a second sleeper sofa in an adjoining room just off of the patio. Although it rained during our entire visit we enjoyed the comfort of the cottage and still managed to get to the beach a bit.... More

I stayed in the 3 bedroom duplex (12A) with my fiancee and his 2 daughters. There was plenty of room for all of us and we were just a 3-5 minute walk from the other units, which were adjacent to the beach. We rented bikes at the cottage (for a reasonable price) and had access to beach chairs and toys.... More

Enchanting...a step back in time. Our time there was so amazing we immediately booked for the following year. Clean, well-kept cottages, friendly staff, and oh so secluded! If it were a timeshare we'd buy into it.

Seven couples gathered for a long weekend visit. We rented a total of 3 cottages, including the 3 bedroom "Beach House" which became our gathering place. When the reservations were originally made two of the couples were in a cottage furthest away from the group action. Despite the extra work for themselves, management agreed to move them closer to the... More

My gf and myself had a fantastic stay here! We stayed in efficiency #5. Nice clean place with wood and tile floors, comfortable king bed and kitchen. Even has a view! Really loved the front porch! Beautiful beach! Owners/staff were very friendly and accommodating. Close to shops and restaurants, will be back!

This was our first time to Sanibel Island and we fell in love with it. We stayed 5 nights at the Gulf Breeze cottages. The cottages were modern, extremely clean and well cared for. The grounds were perfect. The staff were always there to answer a question, give suggestions or talk about the island. Loved this place and will return... More

You've heard it before - location, location, location! And, the Gulf Breeze Cottages certainly have it with their beach front setting. Quaint cottages, nice lawns and patio for all and a 50 step walk to a fabulous Gulf-facing. Have fun, we certainly did.
