This is a small, older property that is not like anything else in the area. In addition to the beach there are lovely, outdoor sitting areas to relax in that you won't find in any newer condo facility! We stayed in the patio cottage for 5 nights. It is clean, comfortable and Myrtle is happy to show you around and...

our cottage was clean and comfortable. the location is perfect for restaurants, night life, and stores. it's just a block from a CVS pharmacy if the need arises. a short stroll puts you on the Gulf for walking, exercise, or fishing.

My husband and I stayed in the Gulf Cottage for six nights. Myrtle had provided everything we could have dreamt of needing. The beach towels were thick and oversized. (I mention these in particular because we used them ALOT)!! The landscaping is amazing, and provides privacy for the many seating areas available. The sandy path that leads to the beach...

Greetings, all! This review is for our end of June/July 2016 stay in the Patio Cottage at Sandy Shores. I want to start off by saying that, in our opinion, it's a great thing that Myrtle, the owner, lives on-site. This does not mean that she is intrusive in any way - she never has been in all the years...

I stayed in the Patio Cottage for a week while attending a wedding in the area. I could not have found a better place. I always look for smaller places, away from the crowds, that are not so commercialized. And Sandy Shores is like an oasis - quaint, comfortable and quiet, with beautiful, shady gardens and steps from the beach....

My wife and I stayed at the Patio Cottage for a long weekend get-away. The first impression was how beautiful the landscaping is and how well it is maintained. The outside area is very peaceful and calming. You could feel the stress going away. There are plenty of places to sit outside to watch the sunset or just listed to...

Just got back a few days ago from our stay at Sandy Shores. My husband and I had been there 3 years ago and finally made it back! We stayed in the Gulf House which is closest to the beach. We also rented the Patio Cottage as I have family in the area and wanted them to spend some time...

We stayed in the Garden Cottage, and it was lovely - so clean, and well-equipped! Everything we needed was there - beach chairs, umbrellas, even boogie boards! I loved the old beach authenticity of the place. And the gardens and patios - so thoughtful and a lot of privacy from the surrounding properties. Also many restaurants and shopping within easy...

Cute! Comfy! Clean! Affordable! And awesome out the front door beach access. Myrtle - the owner - was kind and helpful. The property is quiet and relaxing and there are shops and restaurants right across the street. The beach is literally out the front door and there are lots of outdoor tables and chairs to relax on around the property....
