Unique cottage style duplex.
Everyone wants to stay in a cottage by the beach. Fun, bright, casual. All the things a beachy cottage should be. The cottage has everything you need for a great vacation. Plus a beautiful private deck with warm tropical breezes to enjoy your coffee in the morning and that BBQ at night.
400 feet from the beach. Watch the most beautiful sunrises and sunsets from your beach chair. Walk for miles, shell, swim, or fish.
Back at the cottage, the bike paths run by the front. Hop on a bike and travel the entire island. Enjoy.
[This review assumes you know Sanibel]
-- One short block from the beach; short ride on bike path to Schnapper's Hots; ~2 mi. to Pinocchio's Ice Cream and the lighthouse; 6 mi. to Ding Darling
-- Photos are accurate; notice the large propane grill on the deck
-- Stocked with beach furniture, coolers, towels, flashlight, all cooking tools, dish soap, laundry soap, salt/pepper, coffee filters, books, DVDs, etc... Pack light!
-- Good wi-fi and TVs
-- Very very clean
-- Comfortable beds and couch
-- [a minor one] Beware: There are 2 properties next door to each other called "Shell Basket 1" -- this pink one and a blue one (with a pool). If you get a delivery it may go to the wrong place (even if you tell Billy's Bikes the exact address, 1153 Nerita St.)
-- Shower faucet is odd and gives you choice of cool water or scalding (but cool is fine on sunburn!)
-- Manager is nearby but a bit hard to reach in advance for questions -- hopefully this review will answer some.
