We have been staying at the Gulf Breeze Cottages since the 1990's and have always, without exception, had the very best experience, in every way. Over the years, improvements, updates, and replacements have been made and we are always amazed at how "our" place remains so ideal. If you are looking for a country club atmosphere, with a pool and... More

This was my third stay at Gulf Breeze Cottages and it is the ONLY place I choose to stay when I go to Sanibel Island. The cottages have an Old Florida feel, not the ultra modern everyday motels or hotels that seem to have taken over. Yet, the cottages are fully equipped with modern day essentials, refrigerator, stove, microwave, all... More

First stayed here back in 2012 and decided to return 4 years later since we had such a great time then. Again, we were afforded a relaxing, enjoyable two days of sun and surf, just what we were hoping to achieve. Long walks on the beach, shelling, bike riding, and exploring the town were just a few of the activities... More

Sanibel is awesome. Gulf Breezes is the way to go if you have a big group and need multiple cottages for everyone. The one bedrooms are perfect sized for a couple and the Beach house is great for the central meeting spot. Can t say enough about the beach, absolutely one of the best that we have been to anywhere.... More

My husband and I stayed at Gulf Breeze Cottages a week ago and it was paradise. We were 100 steps from the beach. The cottages were immaculate and had everything we needed to prepare our own meals, including a gas grill. The staff was wonderful!! They bent over backwards for us. Right before we left we booked two more trips... More

Coming from SW Florida, my friends and I have some expectations for what should be standard amenities at a Sanibel vacation rental. 3 items that were lacking at our Gulf Breeze cottage were a working air conditioner, a working refrigerator, and limited sugar ants.
