“Delightful”
Reviewed 10 February 2011

A half block walk to the Bay side of the island, the salt air a good antidote to the snows of Pennsylvania. The wonderful Lighthouse Cafe and Rose's Deli is a half block the other direction, and a few blocks further to the Gulf. BIcycles to roam on. We stayed in the one bedroom cottage which was pleasant, comfortable and suited us well. An easygoing and thoroughly enjoyable vacation.

We came for a week's R&R. The cottage was perfect, cozy and inviting. One block from the bay and one block from the Gulf, in the nice eastern part of Sanibel. No maid service, but free laundry and unlimited towels, complete kitchen, etc. The pool is a laugher (very tiny) but is heated. We greatly enjoyed Seahorse Cottages, and would come here again.

My husband and I were looking for a quiet, clean vacation place on Sanibel. We surely found it at the Seahorse Cottages. Peggy is a great hostess, taking care of all your needs.The cottages are in a great location to access both sides of the islands beaches. We loved the use of the bikes, the little pool, the outside back porch, being able to walk/ride bikes to the lighthouse, and the cafe' for a great breakfast. The cottage had everything we needed and more than we expected. Thank you for everything - we are looking forward to returning for our next vacation.

There isn't enough room to write our true feelings about Seahorse cottages. This was our second year spending a long weekend with Peggy and Keith at the cottages. This year we brought our families down with us and they also had a phenominal time. The cottages are quaint and give the true beach feel. The cottages are located on a delightful part of the island which is quiet. You feel like you have your own personal paradise. Peggy and Keith go out of their way to be sure you are comfortable. The complementary bikes are awesome and are great to tour the island. The beach is a quick walk. There are also cute shops, a great breakfast joint and the best ice cream on the island. We will be booking again!

We had our best vacation ever in June at Seahorse Cottages on Sanibel.
The Richardson's are wonderful hosts and have provided everything you'll need except your food. The cottages are beautiful and immaculate, as are the grounds and so peaceful. Steps from the water on a pleasant path and secluded, I loved that. Big front porch with chairs and tables and a back patio where we ate all but one of our dinners. The furnishings are very nice and we slept well every night. All we needed was more time to spend on Sanibel Island, it was very hard to leave. Now all I want to do is plan my next trip, which will be for a longer time and we will definitely stay at Seahorse Cottages. We loved having the bikes furnished and were on them every day.
Thank you, Peggy & Keith, for this special place. My husband, Ray, was very contented and he's not one for staying anywhere but home. We hope to go back very soon. Arkansas Travelers

We spent a week in the one bedroom. It's a great location. Very short walk to the bay side, reasonable walk to the gulf side. Overall, the property is quiet, cozy, and quaint.

It's great to have the wagons to pull your stuf to the beach, and the bikes to hop on if you want to take a spin. The inside of the room had everything you need. The pool is small but shaded and quiet, and very refreshing after a hot day at the beach.

All four units were mostly full the whole week we were there yet we hardly saw a soul. If you want a quiet, restful spot that is not a cookie cutter of the many condo developments on Sanibel, this is it.

Peggy and Keith are wonderful hosts and I have no doubt they would do anything they could to make your stay more pleasant. We would definitely go back.

I absolutely loved the charm and the peace and quiet. I was looking for a quiet getaway and Seahorse Cottages had everything I needed. With a short walk to the beach, and a front and back porch to relax on in the evenings, it was perfect. Free bicycles, laundrymat and the shell cleaning table, were great additions. My studio had a full kitchen.and I will be back this year! I have passed on my experience to countless people. The only drawbacks for some people would be the small pool and the small parking lot, but I have a small car and and was there for the beaches!! Lori
