My husband and I stayed here on our first trip to Sanibel Island over the summer. We had just moved into a brand new house and needed to get away from it all to the most low key place imaginable. This place was perfect. It was quiet, peaceful and stocked with just about everything you could imagine that you would need. It was about a 5-8 minute walk on foot to the Beach, much faster on bike. The complex is super quiet, we practically had the pool to ourselves most days. It was great to have a fully equipped kitchen, and the lanai was a wonderful thing to have. We sat out there and had lunch on it everyday. We loved that anything we would need for the beach was provided to us in the unit. It was truly a wonderful place to stay and the owner was wonderful and pleasant to deal with. We will definitely return again.
My husband and I stayed at the cottage for three nights. We have not been to Sanibel Island for many many years. Considering we only live two hours away. With that said I think we have found the best place to stay on the island. The cottage is so cute and decorated well. It is centrally located to just about everything you may need. Everything for the beach is right at hand & I love that you can leave all your wet things right at the front door before entering. The bikes could use a little update but, served the purpose. Kurt the owner was more than helpful with any questions we had. My only disappointment was that I made breakfast every morning and thought that we would have at least the basic spices ie: salt, pepper, foil, plastic wrap,etc. I thought it would be more of a stocked kitchen. With that said I would highly recommend this adorable cottage for anyone looking for some peace and quite and relaxation. Oh and one more thing that we so enjoyed was the pool just steps from the door. So if your looking to enjoy some "Island Time" you will not be disappointed.
My husband and I recently stayed in this cottage for a week and were beyond happy with our stay. We honestly did NOT want to leave at the end of the week! The house is completely stocked with everything you could possibly need while at the beach, including bikes!! The location of the cottage is perfect as well, allowing you to walk(or bike) pretty much anywhere you would like to go! I believe we were the only ones in the complex the week of our stay so it was very quiet and we even had the pool(which is right to the left of the cottage) all to ourselves!! The owner is beyond helpful answering any questions you may have and will even reccommend resturaunts for you! Such an awesome place! We are already planning to come back and stay again soon!!
Upon arrival to the cottage we did locate a book that had information about attractions and restaurants however it would have been nice to have sheet with information about directions to the beach, wifi, etc. I had to call the owener as wifi would not work. Turns out this is a common problem and it comes in and out and you have to disconnect the wifi and plug it back in frequently. I also found a lg. baking pan under the kitchen sink with dirty rusted water and the pvc pipes were leaking at several points. I called and told the owner who stated his maintenance man would come by but he never did. The beach was fairly close but the beach umbrella provided was broker. Glad I brought mine. There are 2 bikes, not pretty but they served our purpose.
The cottage was clean but has been remodeled some but needs some updating still. All in all an ok stay, but I probably would look for a newer place.
This cottage was a perfect home base for my 2-week stay on Sanibel. The cottage is clean and supplied with everything you need for a perfect time on the island, including beach toys and chairs. I plan to return in the future with my sister. The only downer was the dog next door that barked much of each day but the owner of the cottage has no control over the dog. Since I spent most of my day at the beach or riding one of the bikes that came with the cottage, I could avoid the dog.
5th year coming to this cottage. Always a great time and away from the hustle and bustle of staying in a hotel. Walking distance to the beach. Bike path all over the island. Very nice clean pool. It just can't be beat for the price. We will come here for years to come.
