We stayed in the efficiency for two nites. The value of the cottages for the price is incredibly good. So many extras included as part of the price - pool bikes beach chair etc. A half block walk to the beach. Private quiet. Just perfect. Want to come back and settle in for a week or more!

I go to Sanibel almost every summer (rooms are half the price). The cottages are very cute and I liked that there are chairs,nets and bikes you can use, The gulf side beach is about 100 yards on one side and the Gulf side is a short walk on the other side. I stayed with my nephew and we walked... More

Our first time visiting Sanibel and I wanted to be near a beach. This place fit the requirement. The only issue I had was the Lighthouse beach itself. The place was perfect for the two of us, we like more of a condo or cottage than a hotel room. Even though it was fully booked we felt secluded which we... More

We returned home Friday from our first trip to Sanibel. Staying at Seahorse Cottages was perfect for us. It's tucked away and quiet. It's small and quaint. The cottages were the perfect size for us.

Seahorse is just perfect for our get-away with friends... an easy walk to the beach and lighthouse, bikes for a ride to Island Cow for yummy lunch, small pool ideal for noodling and afternoon happy hour, porches with room for relaxing and all the guys fly-fishing gear, quick drive to Jerry's for food/ great wine selection...we'll be back !!
