Old-time Florida charm abounds: this is not a chain, it's not fancy or upscale, you won't feel like you need expensive resort wear to fit in. If you like sitting on your little front porch in wicker chairs, having morning coffee or your cocktails, saying hello to the other people who pass by on their way to the beach, peace...

We were looking for a place on Sanibel, which would not remind corporate facilities, hotel or fancy resort. We found that simplicity and relaxed beach- ambiance at Gulf Greeze Cottages. When booking, I was a bit hesitant about "sugar-candy" decor, but it is not prominent in interior and did not bother us at all when we were there. I was...

We went to Sanibel after Christmas to unwind and warm up. The cottages are cute and in a good location, but for what we paid per night, it didn't live up to our expectations. We had one of the two one bedroom cottages and it had a few issues that made us glad we were only there for a few...

We stayed in one of the cottages. Beautiful. The sounds of the surf and the privacy of the cottages and the entire property made us feel as though we were in a secret hideaway. Very clean. Wood floors. Cathedral ceiling. Sitting porch. Sun room. Excellent value.

I'm here now and enjoying the laid back atmosphere and the beyond beautiful beach. This place is absolutely gorgeous. Quiet, calm and perfect for us city folks who needs a few days of R&R. The only thing we can hear is the ocean and the crickets at night. Kids love it and so do we. We can honestly recommend Gulf...

Stayed at Gulf Breeze Cottages in September 2013. We were a party of three so booked a two bedroom cottage. I slept in the twin room. I loved the bedding...bedspreads with shell pattern and sheets also had a sea theme. The accomodation is homely, well equipped and extremely clean. We had a short walk from our cottage to the beach..everything...

I stayed here in August 2013 with my brother and sister. We had 2 bedrooms, 1 with twin beds and it was perfect. The kitchen was fully equipped, everything was clean and all the extras were very convenient. Beach towels, umbrellas, grill, ac. The beach was a short walk--we were in unit 9 which is furthest from the beach except...

Gulf Breezes is a series of simple, a bit tired, but very clean cottages right on the beach in Sanibel Island. At first glance, their age and wear may leave you hesitant. But the experience is simple, relaxed. . . Like going back to a simple, less stressful time. The service is good, the cottages quaint, the beach beautiful. The...

We were very impressed with the cleanliness of the cottage we were in. We felt as though time went back to 1960, these cottages are pure enjoyment! While having all of the modern amenities, the cottages are quaint, clean and within steps to the beach! The staff were very helpful and prompt with any request we had. We will most...

We have made Sanibel a twice (or more) yearly visit and have done our share of research on places to stay...so far we have stayed in 4 beach cottages and THIS was by far the BEST. It was directly on the beach- super clean (which is hard to find in the older cottages) and perfect living space for our family...
