Whitecaps number 5 is a three room cottage that shares a wall with the adjoining unit. The cottage has a small kitchenette with stove, fridge, with ice maker, coffee maker, toaster, microwave,, and sink. The unit is ok but needs some love. I will leave it at that. If you want to be on the ocean, it works. A short...

I rarely complain, almost never. But going to the washing machine and seeing it a coin operated machine was truly amazing. I did not have coins and would not use them anyway. I took it to Island Cleaners instead. I believe that it is truly a huge mistake on your part to have coin operated machines regardless of what your...

The location of this cottage is everything. If you are looking for a quiet place to stay steps from the gulf, this is the place. It had great natural light and beautiful wooden louvered windows, and an outside shower with HOT and cold water!!! It is in my opinion suitable for "just" two people. It has a pull out couch,...

I stayed in unit #4 at the White Caps Cottages. It was a beautiful experience. The beach was right there,easy walk from cottage to the water. Clean, charming cottage. A refreshing place with its one level, tucked away in lovely landscaping. Reminds me of the my early visits to Florida with my family from Wisconsin. Great restaurants near by. I...

Beware!!! My husband and I reserved this cottage for a week. We drove 16 hours and had an accident to get there. When we arrived we were so ready to relax by the ocean. We walked in the cottage and got a rude awakening! The pillows and couch cushions were filthy, everything was outdated and it had a musty smell....

Thank you Michael and Kathy for letting us rent your cottage for a week, The cottage and gorgeous views, were just as you described, a view from each window and front and sides. We had my 19 yr old granddaughter and small dog with my husband and myself, and as you described it was just the right size. We were...

The cottage is perfect --- beautiful views, steps from the beach, well-equipped. You can see the gulf from the bedroom, living room, and kitchen. The lanai is wonderful, with perfect views, and a screen to keep out the bugs, we there every night. We hope to make it a regular destination spot.

We stayed in Cottage # 2. This is a group of nine cottages. Cottage # 1 is connected to Cottage # 2. You could look out our window and see the water. It takes you about a minute to walk to the beach. I really enjoyed my week here. (May 17, 2014 - May 24, 2014) I loved this little...

Our cottage was as comfortable as we remembered from our first trip but beautifully redecorated and updated. Very clean and tidy. Shower door could use some repair. Kingfisher Rentals was responsive and helpful. We had a relaxing week, mostly because we were only a few yards from the ocean. You'll love your stay at whitecaps #2. We hope to stay...

My husband and I frequently rent apartments for stays in many locations around the world. Our all time best rental experience has been renting through Cottages To Castles on Sanibel Island. We have just returned from a month long stay in one of their properties (Recovery Room) and they bent over backwards to make our stay pleasant and memorable. This...

“Cottage # 8 is at the very front of the group of the cottages. There is a little laundry building at the back corner of Cottage # 2. Each cottage has a different owner. Cottage # 1 does not have a washer/dryer. Any of these cottages would be wonderful to rent. They all have their own personalities.”
