Sanibel is awesome. Gulf Breezes is the way to go if you have a big group and need multiple cottages for everyone. The one bedrooms are perfect sized for a couple and the Beach house is great for the central meeting spot. Can t say enough about the beach, absolutely one of the best that we have been to anywhere.... More

My husband and I stayed at Gulf Breeze Cottages a week ago and it was paradise. We were 100 steps from the beach. The cottages were immaculate and had everything we needed to prepare our own meals, including a gas grill. The staff was wonderful!! They bent over backwards for us. Right before we left we booked two more trips... More

We stayed in cottage #9(one of the furthest cottages away from the beach) for 1 night and moved over to cottage #11 the next 2 nights. Cottage #9 is a nice 2 bd/1bath. cottage with full kitchen. Even thought it was farthest from the beach, it actually was a pretty short 4 min. walk away. It was comfortable enough for... More

I have been vising Sanibel for over thirty years and wish I had come across Gulf Breeze Cottages sooner.

Coming from SW Florida, my friends and I have some expectations for what should be standard amenities at a Sanibel vacation rental. 3 items that were lacking at our Gulf Breeze cottage were a working air conditioner, a working refrigerator, and limited sugar ants. Upon arrival, we noticed that the air conditioner was not working. The cottage maintenance man arrived... More

Four of us stayed in a 2 bedroom cottage for 3 nights on a fly drive . Close to the beach and easy reach by car the rest of Sanibel. Kept very clean & site owners helpful. Unless you hire a bike a car is a must on Sanibel as larger and more spread out than it may look. Some... More

We decided on a last minute road trip to Sanibel Island and took the recommendation of the local Chamber of Commerce. They are very Knowledgeable and helpful. They assist with a list of the daily vacancy rate and even provided a phone to book a reservation. Called two places and hit the jackpot with Gulf Breeze Cottages. Very charming and... More
