It had been 28 years since I last visited Sanibel. I was so glad to see that there were any cottages left to rent at all...and Gulf Breeze turned out to be absolutely lovely. The cottage was well appointed, clean, and with charming style and decor. A perfectly wonderful place to stay, I would recommend Gulf Breeze to anyone wanting...

We spent 8 very happy days at The Gulf Breeze Cottages. Location was excellent. Every morning we got up and walked right into the beach. We loved that they supplied chairs and towels (and it looked like sand toys for kids) and that we could rent bikes directly from them. For us, access to the Gulf was a priority, but...

First found the Gulf Breeze cottages in the mid 80's. Off the beaten path, clean and relaxing. Just what the Sanibel experience calls for. Started out as a couple, had Apt #2 the first trip. Later, subsequent trips called for larger quarters when the first, then the second child arrived. Our last several visits were in #10 which has the...

We stayed in Cottage 2. The cottage was very very clean and so adorably quaint. Everything on the property is well maintained. Just steps from the beach. Office staff is extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Looking forward to next time!

We stayed for five nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room was very clean and the grounds well maintained. Kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. The gulf is just steps away and chairs, beach towels, bikes, grills were supplied as well. Nothing fancy but If you like small "mom and pop" places this is the place for...

Was next to the beach with easy access. We thought we would start early to catch the low tide and collect some shells. When we reached the beach we found that we were already late to the party. The property is very well maintained and with very nice decor. Highly recommended for a relaxing getaway.

My husband and I stayed for two nights in cottage 11 with our two young sons. We really enjoyed our stay - the cottage was just the right size for the four of us, clean and comfortable. Best of all we loved being a minute away from the beach, and waking up to the sight of the ocean. Loved that...

We stopped in off season, for an overnight stay on the shelling beach! We could not have been happier with the room we had. Great bed, pleasant sitting area, nicely appointed kitchen and bath. The front porch was our place to chill! The host was nice and accommodating, too. In all, I want to go again, though I would rise...

We stayed in unit number two, it is a nice and cozy one bedroom cottage with a kitchenette, the pullout sleeper sofa, and a second sleeper sofa in an adjoining room just off of the patio.
