We started renting this lovely cottage in 1985...fell in love with the cottage and Sanibel and in 1993 when it came available to purchase we didn't hesitate.

It has always represented freedom, peace and a real vacation to us.

Every morning and evening we would take the short walk to the beach and totally feel revived and relaxed. Loved the southern exposure and big sliding patio doors that would always allow the cottage to be bright and cheery. This place will up lift any spirit. Perfect!

Wonderful! Every convenience thoughtfully provided!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I and our dogs had a wonderful stay on Sanibel, due in large part to this sunny, comfortable, lovely cottage! We were just a short, pleasant walk to the beach, and all beach necessities were provided by the owners including umbrellas, towels, cooler, beach cart, and even sunblock! When we were not on the beach, we were biking the numerous bike paths on the island. Sanibel is the most bike-friendly place I've been to....and you will not have to rent bikes, because two comfy adult cruisers are provided! The owners are very friendly and want to make sure that your stay is most enjoyable. They have thought of everything to make your stay pleasant...they even had a bottle of wine and some munchies waiting for us when we arrived. The cottage was spotlessly clean, and the beds luxuriously comfortable. We can't wait to visit "our" cottage again! Thank you Leslie and Jim for a five-star vacation!

Relax...leave your stress behind

The Sunny Shell Basket Cottage is a perfect get-away.
Leslie and Jim have raised the bar as vacation rental hosts. The cottage has everything imaginable. Don't worry if you forgot to pack something it's probably there! They have anticipated every guests needs. The cottage is clean and spacious. The hosts are only a phone call away should a need arise. They have put a lot of pride and love into this place and it shows throughout. Everything stated in their listing is true. My wife and I usually travel out of the country and we always stay in vacation rentals. This year we wanted to stay in the U.S. and the Shell Basket Cottage in Sanibel made it one of our best trips. We are very thankful to have found this place and the wonderful hosts who own it. We will definitely return to this place when we vacation in Sanibel again. Thank you Leslie and Jim!!!

Superb rental on Sanibel

  • 5 of 5
Sanibel Island is exactly what Florida should be -- tropical, magical. So what could be better than enjoying it in a pretty little cottage by the beach? This rental was as sweet as the pictures online. It was equipped with everything from books and WiFi to flip flops and beach chairs. Our marvellous hosts went so far as to stock the fridge and pantry. We couldn't have been more comfortable or enchanted. Even the two-minute walk to the beach takes you up a lovely lane. If you can get a booking you won't do better than a stay at this sunny spot.

Sanibel's Hidden Treasure

This cottage is just minutes from the beach in a beautifully landscaped area. The cottage was immaculately clean and cared for. The location is perfect for its privacy while still being conveniently located to grocery stores and restaurants. Best of all is the amazing public relations in regard to our stay; including a welcome basket and some basic groceries. There was great information on the area, recommended sites and shopping and we could not have been more comfortable. I could not recommend this place more highly. We could not locate a guest comments book so I am happy to give the earned compliments here.
