My Husband & I took a weekend getaway recently and what a relaxing weekend we had. The location is awesome, quite and relaxing. Just what the doctor ordered! The staff was outstanding assisting with local activities, dining and anything else we needed. Rooms were clean and cozy. Thank you Dan & Shannon for making our weekend so enjoyable!

After a couple disappointments involving check-in during our first 2 days, we had a relaxing, peaceful, and very enjoyable stay at Tropical Winds. Our beach unit, #6, was perfect for 4 of us. We had a screen porch with a table for 4, living room with a small dining table, kitchen area, bathroom and 2 bedrooms. It was nice for... More

We stayed two nights in Cottage #1 and we are still extremely happy we chose this place for our visit to Sanibel. Given that accommodation prices are not the cheapest on this island, you really get an awesome deal here. It starts with the cottage which for two people almost feels like a small house and is very clean and... More

The cottage was just the right size for us and had everything we needed. We arrived after the office closed... More

We just stayed in the cottage with the King bed and it was absolutely fabulous! The beach is so close to their cute, little cottages that we were instantly in love with this place! The owners, Luke & Stephanie, were very accommodating as soon as we got there. Our room wasn't ready when we got there so they were gracious... More

I don't typically write reviews but I just stayed at Tropical Winds this weekend with my two little dogs and fell in love with this place. It provided me with the perfect atmosphere to unwind and recharge after a hectic week. What I particularly liked was the terrazo floors, cleanliness of the unit, and closeness to the beautiful private beach.... More
