We love Sanibel Cottages. We have been coming here for 30 years at the same time every year. The resort is beautifully kept and Kevin is extremely helpful. The cottages have everything that you need and are right off the beach. I think someone should have a conversation with Martha she is very rude. She also habitually parks in the... More

We love Sanibel Cottages! We have been going there for a number of years now and always love our stay. The cottages are very large (2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen, dining area, living room, and 2 porches plus a balcony) and nicely decorated, the screened in porch is great (prefect for meals outside) , and the grounds are beautiful (love...

We have been Sanibel Cottages owners for 30 years, and our children were toddlers when we purchased. Now, our grandchildren are the toddlers! Sanibel Cottages has been the ONLY place we never miss visiting in the summer, and we have loved the other families there, the staff, the beautiful accommodations, and the stunning beach. It doesn't get any better than... More

Very large condo with huge living area and two decks (one screened). Steps to the gulf and shell filled beach. Nice pool, never crowded. Felt far away but a close bike ride to shops, restaurants, and parks. Highly recommend!

We spent a few days here and can honestly say that it was everything we expected, a bit of old style Florida cottage living absent the concrete jungle you see on so much waterfront in the state. If your taste is a relaxed atmosphere with a congenial staff their to help when needed this is for you, I highly recommend... More

We traded thru interval. Very spacious, well decorated and equipped. The balconies are huge, one screened and one open. Convenient to everything; beautiful grounds and beach. One of the nicest condos we've ever stayed at in the last 10 years. Staff not available 24/7 as it's a small unit and they don't change towels or being supplies during the week... More

We absolutely love this place. The location as well as the cottage layout makes for a relaxing visit. The grounds as well as the units are clean and updated often .Do tend to agree with previous guests concerning the office, not the friendliest , but we just stay out of there! Maintenance staff on the other hand are oh so... More

I loved staying here - we were lucky enough to have a cottage near the sea. The poolside is lovely and a very sociable spot. Being so near the sea you can easily make use of the quiet beach and spend hours watching the sea and the pelicans. As with most places on Sanibel, you need a car to get... More
