We recently finished our second stay at Mitchell's--a small family reunion in Ocean Mist--and it was just as good as when we visited here the first time two winters ago. The resort is right on the beach and within easy driving distance of Ding Darling and Bailey's, the local supermarket. You could also take one of the bikes Mitchell's loans free to its guests to either location. Our cottage was right on the beach, and was clean, well-stocked with supplies, and outfitted with decent wifi and cable TV, though we didn't use the latter much. Apart from bicycles, the resort also supplies kayaks, beach chairs and umbrellas and towels at both of its pools, all at no extra charge. The staff is unobtrusive, but their work shows--the place is well-maintained and neatly kept. I've only been to Sanibel three times, twice now at Mitchell's and once at another cottage compound closer to Captiva. I would come back to this place in a minute. The resort bills itself as "old Florida". I'm not sure exactly what that means, but if it means very laid back, informal and relaxed, Mitchell's has nailed it.
