Mitchell's Sandcastles are hands down on The Best part of the beach at Sanibel! We stayed in the Pelican cottage in MidSeptember ( I know, it's been 9 months!), and it was perfect for a couple or family with 1 small child. The cottage is like an oversized play house, attractively and comfortably furnished, with a full stove, refrigerator, microwave, and bathroom. You might want to bring a few containers for food storage, as the cabinets have all the dishes and cookware in them.
The property is very clean, managers are in the office most of the day, and every cottage is a few steps away from the beach. The shells here are terrific! There are fighting conch, quahogs, olives,and cockles in abundance, and all sorts of others to find, especially if you watch where all the birds congregate every day. This beach is the best! Warm water, easily formed tide pools where you can find all the small shells you desire, and not a lot of people to compete with. I believe the Blue Dolphin is beyond this property, but we never got to it, even though we would walk quite a way down the beach each day. too many geeat shells to stop us in our tracks!
A pool is there that is very clean, though we spent all our time in the gulf, and there are washers and dryers. Extra towels are available for the asking, and there is free use of bikes, kayaks, beach toys, beach chairs and umbrellas, and everyone has a bucket to wash their feet. Pelican has a small porch with a table, chairs , umbrella and grill. Be aware that this property is a bit further down from the majority on this street, and that the sidewalk does not come as far as this property, so it would be a bit more challenging to ride a bicycle with a small child on their own bike that needs supervision when you first leave the property. Very nice place to stay for a week or more!
