This is our 2nd stay @ Mitchell's, and we plan to make it our annual vacation destination. The location is perfect. 5 (ish) minutes to Ding Darling, shopping + several restaurants. Bikes, beach furniture + kayaks are available free to guests. The pool is lovely and water was surprisingly warm and comfy for this wimp..lol..(late Oct.) The gulf water is always beautiful, and was pleasantly warm during this stay. We stayed in Gulf Front 3 our 1st visit, and we're in Gulf Front 2 currently. Both units are exactly as they appear on the website, as are the grounds. You'll find no surprises or disappointments. Everything is exactly as it appears in the website photos. We found both units to be very comfortable, cozy and well stocked with all the necessities to make you feel at home. Gulf Front 2 has really lovely ocean + sunset views right from the living room, kitchen + private patio deck. My grandchildren even told me when the dolphin were swimming by, so we could quickly run out to have a better look. GF 2 also has a wonderful (HUGE) seating/preparation counter, which is perfect for larger groups and/or families. 8 people can eat comfortably, which is shocking for a cottage setting! We love a laid back comfortable no pressure vacation, and Mitchell's Sand Castles was the perfect fit for us. Management + staff are pretty much invisible, but if you are in need of something, they will magically appear... They totally respect their guests privacy, which really makes it feel totally private, peaceful and serene. If you are looking for all I have described in a cottage type setting, then you need to look no further than Mitchell's. If you are looking for the equivalent of the Ritz, then your search (sadly) continues. Oh yeah, almost forgot, if you're a "shelling" aholic like me, you won't find better than this perfect mid island location..(I went to Blind Pass, Bowman's Bch & the Lighthouse, and it was a waste land compared to what was right under my nose.) I truly love this place, and God willing, it will be our annual vacation destination.
