The place was very nice and roomy but you have to walk a bit to get to the beach. We stayed in the 1 bedroom deluxe and it was very roomy and spacious. Shower was made for someone tiny and could use a new shower head. Parking is also a little cramped with one way in and out, hopefully you...

Thanks to other reviewers on Trip Advisor, we found Seahorse Cottages. What a perfect choice for us! We rented a one bedroom for nine nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Although the kitchen wasn't the easiest to cook in, due to the tiny stove (that took forever for water to boil for our pasta), it was just fine for what...

We recently spent 8 days at this property. There are four units so this is a small complex but is kept clean and tidy. It is suitable for couples who would like a quiet place to stay. As others have mentioned, it is a walk to the beach but there are wagons to take your items to the beach and...

I just came for spending 4 nights and here is my problem. This could have been just me but I will let you decide. I saw the word Cottages and assumed that they were little stand alone buildings. Well this is not the case, it is one building divided into different Rooms. It was just a let down for me...

Stayed in the two-bedroom Cottage this past Labor Day weekend. It had everything a person could need for a home away from home. The cottage was very comfortable and roomy. The cover deck at the front was the best to be able to sit out and relax and share the day/evening with good friends. This place had everything for the...

We had the two-bedroom cottage which included a full kitchen, dining room, living room, two outside porches. We especially enjoyed the front porch - with a ceiling fan, plenty of room, chairs and tables, it was a great place to compare our shells collected! The cottage was very well equipped, and there were a variety of free amenities - bikes,...

These four cottages are the perfect choice for adults wishing to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. They are tucked away in a quiet nook and provide easy access to the beach. You are a half mile away from the Sanibel Lighthouse. A lovely pool provides private respite from the salt and sand. The inn keepers are...

This review is long overdue. We have spent our Memorial Day Weekend at Seahorse Cottages for seven consecutive years and counting. We stay in the 2 bedroom unit which has a full kitchen, living room and a table for dining. It also has a covered porch as well as a rear entry for easy pool access. The pool is a...

We stayed for 6 days and explored the island on the bikes provided at the Seahorse Cottages. I did not see a better location,such a short walk to both the bay and ocean! The cottage #2 ,was impecably clean and comfortable. I was concerned about the pool being too small as mentioned in a review, but it was great ,...

Has pretty much everything you need here, especially quiet. The only drawback is if you need a large tv in the room-it is not large-but the one in the sitting room is fine-(Room #3)-but that is issue I had, not a big one. Very clean, water in shower hot, kitchen has all you need, rooms are comfortable, porch is facing...

“choose the 1 bedroom for the extra 25.00 for a couple and you will be much more comfortable. The 1 bedroom deluxe is the best for sure.”
