I loved staying here - we were lucky enough to have a cottage near the sea. The poolside is lovely and a very sociable spot. Being so near the sea you can easily make use of the quiet beach and spend hours watching the sea and the pelicans. As with most places on Sanibel, you need a car to get...

A wonderful condo to share time with family or friends. The layout of the rooms are perfect, the kitchen and laundry area is very workable and living area is relaxing. We loved sitting on the screen-in deck playing cards, watching the sun set. The pool is great and the ocean is in your back door. The island has very good...

The property has been consitently surpurbly managed--year in, year out. there are 7, buildings of 4 units each, 2 units on the second floor and 2 uints on the third floor. The ground flor is the parking garage, given the new hurrincane-based building codes. Only...

We have visited Sanibel Cottages twice before with family and finally purchased a condo in the Islander unit. We feel so fortunate to have an escape that means so much to us that we can count on at least one week a year to relax, revive, reunite and thoroughly enjoy each other and our surroundings. The fact that it is...

I have been been coming to Sanibel since I was a child and am happy to now be bringing my own children to this beautiful island! I have stayed all over the island and can honestly say that this has been our best stay yet. We were able to swap out time share here. The units are huge and very...

Gorgeous property and very clean. Just a few drawbacks for my husband and I. Management has limited hours. We are timeshare owners and traded in. We usually stay at more resort like places and this was definately not resort like at all. No bar or restaurant on property or nearby. If you like quiet and relaxation, this is absolutely the...

This resort is "outstanding" a cut above the rest. Beautiful vacation spot - Look forward to coming every year....cleanliness is outstanding feature....the management and staff keep this place in excellent condition. Resort is easy to find, and yet it is hidden from view from the road..... I just love the Cottages - can't say enough about it.

The location of this property is great - steps to the beach. It has great access to the many bike trails on the island. Local bike rental businesses will deliver and pick up bikes directly to the property including bike helmets and locks. The 2 story buildings (no elevator) are set up in a "horseshoe" fashion with a large pond...

Right by the beach but so green and beautiful around the pool and condo. First class facilities and very well maintained by very helpful staff. Reluctant to publish this in case the spell is broken, but maybe mr Frommer has done that by making Sanibel his personal no1

On March 31, 2012 we drove from Key West, Florida to the Sanibel Cottages in Sanibel Island, Florida, to find this resort to be wonderful! When we checked into our room, it was clean, smelled great, and was more than we expected. Our unit was #110 which had a direct view of the Gulf of Mexico which was stunning, and...
