One of the best cottages we've stayed in. Super clean and really well equipped. Sanibel, as well as these cottages are the definition of "a place with soul". Thanks a lot, you gave us a wonderful gift.

We stayed here twice a few years ago (the form would not let me submit without a date). Spent a week in January. It is lovely there nestled among flora and fauna. There are some of the newer condo type buildings around but there are so many flowers and palm trees that you don't even realize how close they might...

Lovely place with good accomodation. We had the big house 12a. Everything was in it. Dishwasher, 2 bathrooms, 3 bedrooms, kitchen and a livingroom. Calm area with immediate Beach acces. Take a walk in the morning of evening on the beach. During the day take a chair, bed or the provided umbrellas with you. Find seashells and enjoy the sun....

Stayed during the week and enjoyed the experience at Gulf Breeze. The room was small but affordable. It was nice to have flatware and other cooking materials although our particular room lacked an oven/stove. Walk to the beach was easy and during our stay the beach was not too crowded. The chairs and umbrella supplied by Gulf Breeze were a...

My husband, children and I were so excited to visit Sanibel. We called Gulf Breeze and they sounded nice on the phone, packed our car and drove from Orlando. We were disappointed to find our location was far more than 500 ft away from the beach, actually off property but we made the best of it. The unit was old,...

Laid back quiet place to unwind and just relax. Located on the second floor, efficiency #7 has awesome views of the Gulf. ( I believe it is the only room with the Gulf view). There are two wicker chairs and a little table on the balcony--perfect for feeling the wonderful Gulf breeze while you sip your beverage of choice. I...

This was our first visit to Sanibel Island and as lifelong Long Beach Island lovers we were hoping to find what we love about LBI and more. We were not disappointed. We choose Gulf Breeze Cottages’ because we prefer the homey feeling of one’s own private space (inside and outside)to that over a hotel room. We stayed in cottage #10,...

Hidden away from the "fancy, high-priced" snooty places. Just what I like! Spent the day on the beach and sat on the porch at night in my bathrobe! What could be better? Didn't have to pretend or act "rich" - just had to be myself. Relaxed and enjoyed myself. Inside could use some sprucing up - bed had something hanging...

We stayed in cottage 8 (2 bedrooms) for 3 nights with husband & 2 teenagers! Perfect location! Loved sitting on deck having coffee in the mornings. Close to beach, comfortable beach chairs, firm beds & all the things we could need for a relaxing, peaceful & quiet stay in our very own beach cottage! So glad we picked Gulf Breeze...
