“Stayed here for the 6th time!!”
Reviewed 29 January 2014 via mobile

I love this place! I've stayed in Egret and now in Ibis and both cottages are clean and nice. The place is small (only 4 cottages) so the guests sometimes get to know each other, which can be fun. Many return year after year. Lots of shell enthusiasts. Only 3 blocks to the gorgeous beach and just a bit down the road to restaurants and other things to do. Owners Mark and Kathy are wonderful.

We stayed at the Ibis Jan 12-19th and had a great time even thought the weather didn't want to cooperate. Our cottage was ready and the key and welcome book were on the table just as the letter we had received told us it would be. The cottage was just perfect. Clean, roomy, well supplied with everything we needed for the week. Mark is a great guy and was around to answer questions and give advice but was never invasive. The cottages are nestled into a residential area in the quiet end of the island. It was also great having the screened in porch for relaxing after a busy day and a place to leave sandy shoes. The folks in the other three cottages were all very nice. The beach is just a 2 minute walk down the road, or if you care to drive you get a parking pass and you can drive right up to the beach path. The beach is beautiful and great for long walks and beautiful sunsets. You also get supplied with really nice beach chairs, an umbrella and a shelling net. There are also bikes to use and the bike path is just across the street. It's an easy ride to Ding Darling and a little farther, but a nice ride to town. We actually biked all over the island and up to Captiva. The bike path makes it safe and easy. These cottages are quiet and you feel very safe staying there. We'll stay there again if we choose Sanibel for our next vacation, it felt like a home away from home. Thanks for everything Mark.

We stayed in Ibis cottage, very spacious, clean, provided with all that you need, beach chairs & umbrella, beach towels, parking pass & paradise is down at the end of the road! Mike was on hand to answer any questions & point you in the right direction. Shame we had to back home into winter.

My family and I stayed in the Heron Cottage. Besides being large and roomy, it was beautiful and homey. The kitchen was fantastic, and my family really enjoyed the pond view. We saw Green Heron chicks hatch right outside our window! The beach was fabulous and restful, with beautifully turquoise water! Had the perfect vacation and will definitely return!

We spent a week in the Ibis cottage and it came to feel just like home. It was comfortable, generously supplied with towels, and had all the kitchen equipment one would need. Beach chairs and umbrella are provided, and equipped with shoulder straps so they can easily be transported to the beach by bicycle, which is about a 3 minute ride if that. The beach is unbelieveable, so private, loaded with shells and a wonderful place to watch the sunset. The cottages are on the "quiet" end of Sanibel so it is very peaceful. We enjoyed riding and kayaking through the Ding Darling preserve and also a visit to CROW. This was one of the most relaxing trips I have ever taken, and I certainly hope to return!
