This place is great!!! We were a group of 6 friends, and rented cottage #22. The cottage was clean, nice and very spacious, with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and a large living room area, it had more that enough space and beds for everybody, it was perfect. The kitchen area was equipped with everything we needed, and they even... More

We just returned from our Sanibel family vacation at Beachview Cottages. This is our 4th stay here over the past 8 years or so since we have been taking family vacations with our 3 daughters. We have stayed in other hotels and this is by far our favorite. Location is excellent with the beach and pool with in steps of... More

We stayed 5 nights in the Sea Urchin cabin #14, it was wonderful, no elevators or building to enter just walk off the beach and your home. The beach had great shells and we even visited all the other beaches on the island and came back to ours as it was the best. Every cabin had a peek at the... More

We stayed 2 nights in cottage #14. Even though it was the middle unit in a tri-plex, it was very quiet. The screened in porch was a nice bonus, as well as the full kitchen. Sanibel is already very expensive, so this property seemed like a good value for the amenities. Great beach walking and shelling just a few seconds... More

From the first step of making our reservation with Bill, a charming accommodating employee, to the warm welcome as soon as we step into our cottage. it was a home away from home steps from the beach- which we enjoyed beautiful horizons and relaxing by the calm waters during the day. I recommend a visit. What a great spot:)Thank you... More

My wife and I have stayed in quite a few "beach" places and we also live in the Fort Myers area. The cottages at Beachview are what I call old Florida. Quaint, clean and always a little sand on the floor. This is for the person(s) who's looking for a quiet getaway with a beach in the backyard. Admittedly, our... More

This was our first time in Sanibel and we enjoyed it so much. Quiet, laid-back and plenty to do to entertain yourself. We were close to everything and you could ride a bike anywhere you wanted to go. No hills. We will definitely return but may fly this time as the trip was long from TX.

We have visited Beachview off and on for over 40 years. It was not new when we started, and even though the owners have tried to make improvements, it is still a worn out property. The cottages have been updated, but still have a shabby feel to them. We have stayed in almost all of the rooms at one time... More

Pros: Can park your car right next to unit. Beach is just steps away. Beds are comfortable. New A/C units are quiet and work great. Nice little porches to sit on, collect shells etc. Our unit was very clean and had been recently remodeled. Each unit has its own BBQ. Pool is clean and just the right size. Cons: Towels... More
