This is a fabulous place to stay, I would recommend this place to anyone! Very quiet and relaxed atmosphere. The young lady (I'm horrible with names) is awesome very helpful and honest. She will guide you in the right direction for food etc. Cottages- very nice and clean, just don't expect that you renting a plush high end cottage. Very nice, clean and has everything you need will be back next year!

This is our third stay with Beachview Cottages and once again it was awesome! Lisa, at the front desk, is just a wonderful person and SO helpful!! She is able to answer any questions you may have and makes fantastic suggestions on restaurants and attractions.
With it being directly on the beach you truly only need bring your swimsuit and sunscreen......and plenty of shell bags!! You just can't help but to collect them!
Definitely returning next year!!

Room Tip: We have stayed in rooms 3, 9 and 12. All were fantastic, but from the screened porch in 3 you can s...

We spend a few days there almost every year. Very cozy and relaxing.
Few steps and you are in the water. Pet friendly and friendly staff.
Miss the free "old" bikes though (they got new ones but now they charge for them).

we just spent a week at the Beachview and it was the best ever. the cozy cottages are so much better the plain hotel rooms everyone else has. it was amazing old florida feel, beautiful beach, wonderful pool. the staff was so helpful with dinner plans, cruise ideas, maps, and coupons. so relaxing and no crowds. my husband and I were in the pool everyday and there were never more than 4 other people there I ruled the pool ! and they are pet friendly! next time we are staying 2 weeks.

With the gulf only steps away, the ambiance and value this place can not be beat.

And if you tire of the beach, the pool is an excellent spot to retire too.

You can see the Milky Way on a dark night. Turtles, pelicans, egrets, sandpipers and a host of other sea and wild life. Oh yeah, it is great for shelling or fishing too!

Lisa is such a huge help in too many ways to list here. She has tips on attractions, beaches, dining, food, parking, shopping, sightseeing, shelling and so much more. Just ask her - she will give you the skinny and tell it straight. No real shopping or dining within walking distance. However, grills are plentiful.

There is not a bad cottage in the bunch. We went with 11 others (13 in all) for a week and got to see most units. The efficiencies are small but very cozy (we stayed in #6), the one and two beds were spacious and the big units over the office were best. All were clean and quite comfortable in an "Old Florida" way. The Gulf surf is not as punishing as the Atlantic, and you can wade way out there - except during high tides

All included microwaves, fridges, ovens with basic utensils, pots and pans for cooking / eating. FYI - Bring your own paper towels and condiments. They only provide salt and pepper. And if you want to grill at one of the many grills on site - bring your own charcoal since they do not provide this.

Most (if not all) food or supplies for most (again, if not all) dietary needs can be procured at Bailey's on the way in Check their web site here (http://www.baileys-sanibel.com) Just a few minutes a way by car or bike (you could walk, but the trip back loaded downs with bags will get old - quick). Beach chairs and pool towels are abundant.

All you really need is a bathing suit and sunblock. Beachview Cottages and the Island will provide the rest.

My husband took me to Beachview Cottages for a birthday getaway. I wasn't sure what to expect but was blown away by how cute and coastal this place was. We were in Cottage 10 right on the beach. There's nothing like eating breakfast from your dining room and enjoying the sounds and sites of the ocean. The unit was extremely clean and well kept. The air conditioning was top notch which is a plus in Florida.

Beachview Cottages offers beach items to borrow which was nice - chairs, boogie boards, umbrellas. They also had a nice pool which was a bonus. Each unit has its own charcoal bbq grill.

The greatest upside for me was being able to bring our dog to the beach for the first time. Beachview Cottages has multiple units that are dog-friendly! Nothing beats the memories that were made watching our Jack Russell run into the waves.

Make sure to bring bug spray - the no-see-ums were out in full force along the beach.

The location was perfect - well worth the trip over from the east coast of Florida. A must stay!

Inclusive Tax we paid 140 US /N in August 2013, which is a bit stiff. Apart from that it was a nice overnight stay, with the pool right next to our Cottage No. 9 with kitchen, wintergarten and bedroom with a Queenbed.
No Restaurants within easy Walking distance, good beach and friendly staff.
