We recently stayed at Periwinkle Cottages and we were extremely pleased with our experience! The cottage was clean, comfortable and had everything that we could possibly need. While the cottage is up-to-date with furnishings, we still had the feeling of staying in "old Florida" rather than in a cookie-cutter condo. The location is perfect--just a short walk to the beach...

I love this place! I've stayed in Egret and now in Ibis and both cottages are clean and nice. The place is small (only 4 cottages) so the guests sometimes get to know each other, which can be fun. Many return year after year. Lots of shell enthusiasts. Only 3 blocks to the gorgeous beach and just a bit down...

We stayed at the Ibis Jan 12-19th and had a great time even thought the weather didn't want to cooperate. Our cottage was ready and the key and welcome book were on the table just as the letter we had received told us it would be. The cottage was just perfect. Clean, roomy, well supplied with everything we needed for...

We stayed in Ibis cottage, very spacious, clean, provided with all that you need, beach chairs & umbrella, beach towels, parking pass & paradise is down at the end of the road! Mike was on hand to answer any questions & point you in the right direction. Shame we had to back home into winter.

My family and I stayed in the Heron Cottage. Besides being large and roomy, it was beautiful and homey. The kitchen was fantastic, and my family really enjoyed the pond view. We saw Green Heron chicks hatch right outside our window! The beach was fabulous and restful, with beautifully turquoise water! Had the perfect vacation and will definitely return!

We spent a week in the Ibis cottage and it came to feel just like home. It was comfortable, generously supplied with towels, and had all the kitchen equipment one would need. Beach chairs and umbrella are provided, and equipped with shoulder straps so they can easily be transported to the beach by bicycle, which is about a 3 minute...

We stayed in the Ibis cottage and it was absolutely wonderful. Great bed, comfortable living space in a quiet setting. Our Sanibel vacation was made just that bit more comfortable because for what they provide for their guests: the use of bikes, beach umbrella, towels and chairs. And the beach is a short walk away. Perfect! I cannot recommend Periwinkle...

“Next time we would like to reserve one of the one bedroom cottages which are very roomy and nice looking on the inside. Everything else there was booked when we made reservations and were just glad to get the efficiency but for a week's stay one of the larger cottages would be better.”
