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! Maintenance staff on the other hand are oh so... More

I loved staying here - we were lucky enough to have a cottage near the sea. The poolside is lovely and a very sociable spot. Being so near the sea you can easily make use of the quiet beach and spend hours watching the sea and the pelicans. As with most places on Sanibel, you need a car to get... More

A wonderful condo to share time with family or friends. The layout of the rooms are perfect, the kitchen and laundry area is very workable and living area is relaxing. We loved sitting on the screen-in deck playing cards, watching the sun set. The pool is great and the ocean is in your back door. The island has very good... More

The ground flor is the parking garage, given the new hurrincane-based building codes. Only... More

We have visited Sanibel Cottages twice before with family and finally purchased a condo in the Islander unit. We feel so fortunate to have an escape that means so much to us that we can count on at least one week a year to relax, revive, reunite and thoroughly enjoy each other and our surroundings. The fact that it is... More

I have been been coming to Sanibel since I was a child and am happy to now be bringing my own children to this beautiful island! I have stayed all over the island and can honestly say that this has been our best stay yet. We were able to swap out time share here. The units are huge and very... More

Gorgeous property and very clean. Just a few drawbacks for my husband and I. Management has limited hours. We are timeshare owners and traded in. We usually stay at more resort like places and this was definately not resort like at all. No bar or restaurant on property or nearby. If you like quiet and relaxation, this is absolutely the...

This resort is "outstanding" a cut above the rest. Beautiful vacation spot - Look forward to coming every year....cleanliness is outstanding feature....the management and staff keep this place in excellent condition. Resort is easy to find, and yet it is hidden from view from the road..... I just love the Cottages - can't say enough about it.

The location of this property is great - steps to the beach. It has great access to the many bike trails on the island. Local bike rental businesses will deliver and pick up bikes directly to the property including bike helmets and locks. The 2 story buildings (no elevator) are set up in a "horseshoe" fashion with a large pond... More
