We had read excellent things about Sanibel Island and wanted to check it out. We chose to stay here because it was pet friendly and right on the beach. We loved the cottages! They are not fancy, which is perfect for us. All of the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms are well equipped with anything you might need. It has a more private feel than that of a hotel chain that has several rooms. The short walk to the beach was perfect for our furry family member, no streets to cross. We would absolutely stay here again and recommend it to anyone who isn't looking for fancy fixtures, just simple comfort.

Room Tip: All cottages are very exclusive. We stayed in cottage 8 and our parking was right under our room(didn't have to worry about someone banging our car with their door). Each room has an assigned spot and this one worked for us.

I stayed in Cottage 19 with my family for just a couple days in February (16-18) and we all wish we could have stayed longer! The cottage was nicely appointed with a full kitchen, living room, bedroom, bath, and a nice screened in porch. The cottage is up one story off the ground and overlooks the pool. From the porch, you can also see the ocean. From Cottage 19, it's just a short walk to the beach (less than a minute).

I'm certain there are many nice places on Sanibel Island, but my family and I will gladly return to the Beachview Cottages. It was quiet, relaxing, right on the beach, and overall appealing. There are plenty of interesting guests to meet and the staff is very helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: Cottage 19 is closer to the road, but traffic noise was never a problem. It's a spacious cottage with all the amenities for an extended stay (stove, microwave, full size refrigerator, dishes, etc.).

It has been a while since my last visit to Sanibel Island and let me tell you this place should be in the top of your lost for your choices.
Very clean cottages, the selection of different type of cottages is very good, from small to big cottages for big families!
We loved the fact that is a very quiet place to rest and enjoy the beautiful beach of Sanibel Island!
The service is very good. The staff is very polite and they did everything to meet our needs.
The beach is just a couple steps of your cottage!! Yes!!!!
Sitting in the sand and watch the sunset is just priceless and here is a plus with your cottage right there!
The only negative thing that i could say is that for you to eat or buy food for the period of a week you would have to leave the island and go to the mainland to buy groceries in a big chain of supermarket.
We certainly will be back to the Beach view Cottages! We highly recommend it!

My wife and I had to make a business trip to Sanibel at high season and this was the only place that had an cabin left. We rented cabin 20 which is ground floor with 2 cabin above and the furthest from the beach. The 2 good things about this place is a great staff and right at the wonderful beach. We arrived about 1am and they left us the keys for a late check in. When we open the cottage door we were overtaken by the smell of mold and very damp. There was a window air conditioner but it just made the mold smell worse so we didn't run it and open the doors and window to try to get fresh air in the cabin which was also very dark even mid day. The next morning all our clothes were damp as was the floor, it had a dresser but smelled so bad of mold we wouldn't use it and just kept stuff in our suitcases. It had a kitchen but was poorly equipped with very little in the way of pots and pans and not even a roll of paper towels. I was not in any in any other cabin so i can't say what they were like. This cabin needs a good cleaning and updating. We cannot recommend cabin 20 for these reasons.

We have stayed 3 times in these quaint comfortable cottages. If you are a morning person there is no better place to see the sun rise on a beach walk. Brew up a pot of coffee, step out the door and walk the 10 yards or so onto the beach. Every walk I saw something different like dolphin, sting rays, a shark, crabs, birds, various sponges, huge conch and shells shells shells! The pool is clean and heated when we come in February. The property recently purchased a fleet of bikes for guest use. Rent was $3 an hour. Just enough to keep the maintenance up. The office staff reflect the laid back friendly atmosphere of this place. They are quite willing to give suggestions about places to eat and play. One of the best things about this place is that it is out of the crowded parts of the island.

Room Tip: Unit #5 good for small family or 2 couples. Unit #6 is REALLY small. Next time I will try an upper unit to try out the view.
