This is one of my favorite places to go. We rent one bedroom cabin on gulf. Whether Sitting on screened porch looking at gulf, riding bikes, going kayaking or shelling this is place to be, they also have a beautiful pool and chairs and umbrellas to take to beach. If you have a dog they are welcome. This is a... More

Finally...I was able to get part of my family to join me here the past few days. I have been to Mitchells several times by myself or with another friend, but could never find a time that they had availability and my daughter and her family could get down from Indiana. Well...we spent 4 great nights in #10 and it... More

We stayed for a long weekend in the Ocean Mist cottage, along with another couple. We were all extremely happy with the cottage, especially the fact that there is a bathroom in each of the 3 very nice-sized bedrooms! The kitchen has all modern appliances, including coffee maker, toaster, and blender! The beds were quite comfortable and the cottage itself... More

You'll love it A Special place to spend time with your loved ones. Bring your toothbrush and your swimsuit! The accommodations are perfect. All the cottages have queen pull out sofas. The cottages have everything you'll need. Wifi, cable and Just steps to the beach. If you love shells, you'll love this beach. Sunsets are truly spectacular.

3rd time staying at Mitchel's and still thinking of coming back. Property is right on the beach, offering a variety of accommodation choices, always clean, neat grounds with a pool, even borrowable bikes to trek the island. Very recomendable for a relaxing time for your family and your pet!

My husband and I just returned from a short get-away to Sanibel Island, our first time there, and we loved Mitchell's Sandcastles. We stayed in Coquina, an efficiency, and it was clean, well-equipped with stove, microwave, fridge, dishes, pans, silverware, paper towels, flat screen TV and wi-fi. We also had a private screened in porch with a water view. The... More

Stayed for a week beginning of August. The property is exactly as advertised, it was very very peaceful, clean and well taken care of. The area and beach cannot be beat if you want zero crowds, peace & quiet and to be totally relaxed. Every encounter with the owner or an employee was beyond pleasant and helpful. Being August in...

Unfortunately this is not a qualified review of Mitchells Sand Castles and should not really be allowed. It detracts from the honest reviews that we are very proud of. The fact that someone is allowed to post a One Star review based on the reviewers strange perception of reality is most troubling. We have 3 basic pet rules - leash,... More
