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 When the reservations were originally made two of the couples were in a cottage furthest away from the group action.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 could rent bikes which are located right on the property. Cottage had a sofa sleeper, table with 4 chairs, nice kitchen, half bath,... 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.

My husband and I needed a one night stay on a Saturday night. We were on our way to Naples for 4 nights. I remembered the Gulf Breeze Cottages from 10 years ago!

Absolutely enjoyed my time there. The kids loved it. Close to everything. My teenagers took the bikes and explored. Beach was stunning, sunrises & sunsets were free. ;) Lots of beautiful pictures and memorable moments. I loved that we had full kitchens to cook our own food. They even had beach toys for the kids. Staff was pleasant! Can't wait... More

We picked to Gulf Breeze Cottages for our honeymoon, it is a little older, but it has charm, of old Florida. The cottages were very clean, and very well taken care of. Management was very courteous, and ready to help with any our needs. We stayed in apt no. 7, it was the one we hoped for, after reading the... More
