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. You have easy access to the bay side and Gulf as well as the bike paths to explore the island. You have the Lighthouse Cafe... More

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 !!

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

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
