Sadly, Beachview was destroyed by Hurricane Ian. The company that owns it, Sanibel Captiva Beach Resorts, plans to rebuild but there is no timeline due to the total destruction that happened to the island on Sept. 28, 2022. Current reservations are being refunded beginning with the closest reservations.

Beachview cottages is a annual solo trip for me. Check in is a breeze. The resort is clean, beautifully landscaped and the old Florida feel that has essentially disappeared. This is the perfect setting for families, couples and in my case, solo travelers. The cottages are well appointed, many have been recently updated. All that one will need for a stay and chill, bbq, cooking , even beach towels. I took advantage of the gazebo for watching the sunset. There is a pool in the resort with tables and chairs. I love the sand so I rarely visit this pool but is well kept as well. Ample parking. You are allowed one car next to your cottage, and a parking lot directly across the street. I cannot say enough about the staff. I have become friends with the head housekeeper through the years. She is attentive to every need, made it a point to see that I had seashell net and scoop and umbrella. Her name is Dilya. Please reach out, she is a treasure. Take a good bug repellent. At dawn and dusk there are tiny little bugs that bite, they are called No See’Ums and can be very irritating but I used an organic bug spray and it kept them off. I highly recommend Beachview Cottages of Sanibel.

Highly recommend this cabin to stay at. The cabins were well stocked, super clean, and they even offered a towel service. Just steps from the beach and they provided chairs and umbrellas, we can’t wait to stay here again!

Property is very well located, directly on the water. We like the individual units, rather than a large motel-type building. The room was clean and neat, well maintained and attractively decorated. Also it is very convenient to park right at the front door.

This was my second visit to Beachview Cottages and and my cousins' 4th or 5th visit. Just love the cottages and the closeness to the beach. This year, we brought someone new with us and now they will be back also! All the staff are so friendly! The cottages are clean and just perfect. See you again soon!

This place offers wonderful access to the beach. Very nice, renovated rooms. Stuff is friendly and helpful. Cottages have different size rooms that can accommodate different needs. Beach is not crowded, so atmosphere for relax is an ideal.

We came to Florida to visit family and decided to take a one night trip down to Sanibel. We didn’t book a room in advance. After checking out several other properties when we pulled into Beachview I knew it was the one. We rented cottage #2. The view was amazing and it is literally steps from the beach. It was very hot but the A/C worked very well!

This is the cutest little collection of picturesque cottages right on the beach. Our family of four loved this place (we had our two kids along, ages 5 and 7). The staff were friendly and wonderful, the cottage was extremely clean, it had a full kitchen, oven, microwave, full fridge and freezer, silverware, plates, bowls, toaster, really everything you'd need in a kitchen. The air conditioning was strong and very reliable. The windows were new and had a tight seal - no bugs! The mattress was new and really nice to sleep on, the linens were impeccable, the TV was large and had Netflix, Hulu, and Disney+ already available for free. There was a screened-in private porch with a seating area and a clothes line for swimsuits, the pool was a good size and maintained beautifully, no cracks or gross tiles, just a pretty pool with seating and umbrellas alongside. And of course the beach - flawless :) Shells galore. The water was calm, warm, and gorgeous. There were adirondack chairs and lounge chairs available for borrowing, along with beach towels. They have a raised covered deck for reading in the shade. No umbrellas, but the deck was the perfect shady area so I didn't miss umbrellas. The ONLY flaw with this place is the wifi. It's on-again-off-again and there wasn't anything the staff could do. The Netflix/Disney/Hulu apps on the large flatscreen only worked when the wifi was strong enough, which was 50% of the time - the kids didn't love that. Also, I work remotely and was hoping to do a work-cation but 75% of the times I tried to connect, the wifi was too weak to connect to either my phone or laptop. And when I did get connected, it was often too slow to load web pages. I had strong internet for maybe 1 hour out of my 4-night stay. This unfortunately puts a damper on my plans to return here. I hope the owners invest in better wifi so I can come back! Because I would hands-down come back! This place is perfect otherwise!! :) If strong wifi isn't a big deal for your vacation plans, I highly recommend this cute place. It's perfect, you get a lot for your money, it's safe, friendly, and charming.
