My husband, sister-in-law and I stayed in the Heron cottage for too brief a holiday. We loved the view of the pond with its young resident alligator and two nesting pairs of Yellow Crowned Night Heron. Thank you, Mark, for the introduction to the local wildlife and always cheerful responses to our questions.
It was a pleasure to sleep in comfortable beds, have easy access to the unpopulated beach, comfortable air conditioning and ceiling fans galore.

Booked through the owner of the cottages. Paid her by credit card over the phone. A month later she sent me a email saying that she missed us. I booked in March for our May 15th travel. So I called her right away. Very rude and defensive on the phone. Saying I booked the wrong dates. When in fact I booked flights, car rental, and took time from work the same day I booked with her. Truth is she got our dates wrong, and then went on to say that it was my fault... She was very rude and would not refund any money. I would stay away.

We stayed in the Bird's Nest Cottage Apr.'14 for 4 nights. We were greeted by Mark, the proprietor, who was pleasant and guided us into our parking site. Bird's nest is the smallest of their accommodations, it was available for the dates that my daughter and I were available. We were happy with the location & the lending bikes which made it easy to travel and enjoy the Ding Darling Wildlife refuge nearby. Beach chairs which could be carried like a back pack and an umbrella were available as well as a parking pass. Towels were fluffy and substantial, nicer than some higher end hotels I've stayed in. I was informed on booking that no facility for in door cooking was available in this unit, but a nice refrig /w small freezer & microwave were provided. The only sink was in a very compact bathroom, it was a challenge to clean any dishware we used for coffee or food. We saw birds right outside our window and had an enclosed yard /w a charcoal grill which we did not use, but might have if we stayed longer.

We recently stayed at Periwinkle Cottages and we were extremely pleased with our experience! The cottage was clean, comfortable and had everything that we could possibly need. While the cottage is up-to-date with furnishings, we still had the feeling of staying in "old Florida" rather than in a cookie-cutter condo. The location is perfect--just a short walk to the beach (or you can drive and park with a permit supplied by the cottage owner) and once on the beach just a short walk to Bowman's Beach--one of the best spots for shelling on the Island. The location is great--it is a short drive to Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge and the shops and restaurants on both Sanibel and Captiva. The owners, Mark and Kathy, are wonderful--always anxious to make your stay wonderful. We've already made our reservation for next winter!

I love this place! I've stayed in Egret and now in Ibis and both cottages are clean and nice. The place is small (only 4 cottages) so the guests sometimes get to know each other, which can be fun. Many return year after year. Lots of shell enthusiasts. Only 3 blocks to the gorgeous beach and just a bit down the road to restaurants and other things to do. Owners Mark and Kathy are wonderful.

We stayed at the Ibis Jan 12-19th and had a great time even thought the weather didn't want to cooperate. Our cottage was ready and the key and welcome book were on the table just as the letter we had received told us it would be. The cottage was just perfect. Clean, roomy, well supplied with everything we needed for the week. Mark is a great guy and was around to answer questions and give advice but was never invasive. The cottages are nestled into a residential area in the quiet end of the island. It was also great having the screened in porch for relaxing after a busy day and a place to leave sandy shoes. The folks in the other three cottages were all very nice. The beach is just a 2 minute walk down the road, or if you care to drive you get a parking pass and you can drive right up to the beach path. The beach is beautiful and great for long walks and beautiful sunsets. You also get supplied with really nice beach chairs, an umbrella and a shelling net. There are also bikes to use and the bike path is just across the street. It's an easy ride to Ding Darling and a little farther, but a nice ride to town. We actually biked all over the island and up to Captiva. The bike path makes it safe and easy. These cottages are quiet and you feel very safe staying there. We'll stay there again if we choose Sanibel for our next vacation, it felt like a home away from home. Thanks for everything Mark.

John and Cindy
