this was my 1st time to sanibel but i have stayed all over each coast of fl. my visit was during the thanksgiving holiday and it honestly was the best thanksgiving i could have ever had with having t be away from my kids. the owners are not "owners" they feel like friends and made my trip so wonderful.. the cottage i stayed in was just perfect and i love being in this section of the island.. you are smack in the middle of the refuge and steps away from the beach so you have the best of everything. the beach was not crowded like other areas and at times i felt like alone at the beach. it was an amazing trip. they have bikes there so you don't have to rent one and i rode all over the place. even on the day of my checkout they let me use a bike for one last ride down to the end of captiva. i am a runner so i would start my run on the refuge side run for a bit and then would cut over and finish on the beach. it was beautiful. sanibel offers so many outdoor things to do, i just love it. sanibel has become my go to place in fl to just get away from everything and i can't ever imagine staying anywhere else. i had privacy but knew i had a friend a phone call away if i had a problem or a question. Periwinkle cottages is what ever independent hotel/motel should strive for.....
