Stayed at these cottages in 1978. They were cool and right on the beach. They are still right on the beach but, 36 years later, not so cool. I expected the actual cottages to be the same but not the furniture and other amenities. I am sure the sofa bed I slept on was the same one (and it was... More

Go stay in Old Florida, in the time before development ran rampant. Charming cottages right on the beach. I stayed here with my parents and girlfriend for 2 nights. On Monday night there was a wine and cheese hour. We got to meet some other guests and really enjoyed it. Staff is very friendly and everyone was helpful. We were... More

The cottages are not fancy but they are clean and give you a feeling of total relaxation. The cottages are equipped with microwave, stove and TV with cable they have a screened in porch to set and have your... More

We had read excellent things about Sanibel Island and wanted to check it out. We chose to stay here because it was pet friendly and right on the beach. We loved the cottages! They are not fancy, which is perfect for us. All of the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms are well equipped with anything you might... More

I stayed in Cottage 19 with my family for just a couple days in February (16-18) and we all wish we could have stayed longer! The cottage was nicely appointed with a full kitchen, living room, bedroom, bath, and a nice screened in porch. The cottage is up one story off the ground and overlooks the pool. From the porch,...

We have stayed 3 times in these quaint comfortable cottages. If you are a morning person there is no better place to see the sun rise on a beach walk. Brew up a pot of coffee, step out the door and walk the 10 yards or so onto the beach. Every walk I saw something different like dolphin, sting rays,... More

We spent a week in Cottage #1 and it was great! In fact, I am worried that no future trip will live up to this one in our children's minds. The best part was probably how close we were to the beach - truly just steps to the sand. We spent a lot of time in the water and hunting... More

I selected this hotel based on trip advisor reviews for a long holiday weekend with my family. Travelers were my husband, daughter, my parents and me. We arrived a little early on and were told our cottage (Cottage #11) wasn't yet ready, so we parked at our cottage (it was so nice to just drive up to our cottage on... More
