My wife and I truly enjoyed the stay there. Never saw the folks that own the cottages but extremely well run would be an understatement. Immaculately clean it was a pleasure to use the kitchen and find any and all utensils that were needed. The grill worked like a charm. Pure pleasure to hang out in the pool and sip... More

I would diffinitly recommend the Seahorse Cottages. Perfect location, access to both sides of the island within a couple of minutes walk. Very comfortable. Even the bed to our surprise was very comfortable. Had a good nights sleep after wearing our selves out walking the beach.A little small but perfect for the time we spent in it. Loved that they...

Stayed in 1A for three nights late May 2014. I was thrilled with the unit. My first impression was that the property and unit were very clean, comfortable and well thought-out. I was expecting an efficiency unit and discovered a delightful and sizable one-bedroom! It was a perfect place for me as I'm self sufficient and just want a quiet... More

I've been remiss in my reviews. We stayed here last fall on a trip down to the Keys. I hadn't been on Sanibel in many years and didn't remember much about it, so we took a chance on the Seahorse. What a find ! Nice and quiet, clean and comfortable. Easy walk down to the beach or across to the... More

We were so impressed by the coziness and turn key, every need met condition of the cottage that we knew immediately we would be staying here again. The location was also perfect for us as when taking a right turn we wound up on the gulf and a left took us to the bay. We just booked our next stay... More

We spent 5 nights at Seahorse Cottages. First getaway in over 20 years without children. Place was fantastic. Close to the beach & restaurants. Stayed in unit 3 (1 bedroom). Plenty of room. The provided beach chairs, umbrella, wagon and bikes were very helpful. Quiet, relaxing stay. We would definitely recommend staying there.
