We stayed at the Seahorse Cottages for the second time this past Memorial Day weekend. There are 4 cottages on the property, at the east end of the island near the lighthouse. So comfortable and homey! Each cottage has a full kitchen, bedroom(s), a living-room and eat-in kitchen, bath, front and back porch, and cable TV. No maid service, but...

It is an excellent choice for a weeks stay in paradise. Not fancy, but old Florida! Its in a quiet neighborhood near the old lighthouse and its famous shelling beach. A short walk. The kitchenette doesn't have a dishwasher. Management provides free beach chairs and umbrellas, bicycles, and washer and dryers. Don't over look the small swimming pool and hammock!

We stayed in the efficiency for two nites. The value of the cottages for the price is incredibly good. So many extras included as part of the price - pool bikes beach chair etc. A half block walk to the beach. Private quiet. Just perfect. Want to come back and settle in for a week or more!

Our first time visiting Sanibel and I wanted to be near a beach. This place fit the requirement. The only issue I had was the Lighthouse beach itself. The place was perfect for the two of us, we like more of a condo or cottage than a hotel room. Even though it was fully booked we felt secluded which we...
