We love, love this place, and so does our pup. We first visited in Feb with a 12 lb puppy and it was his first visit to the sea. We visited last week with the now-70lb puppy, and he enjoyed as much as he did the last time! Stephanie and Luke are the best, so friendly and accommodating and helpful...

Lovely, lovely stay in an old Florida motel/cottage! Small fully equipped kitchen, nice living area, two double beds, screened lanai porch. Beautiful pool for cooling off. And only a 100 yard walk to the beach--with some of the best shelling on the island (right next to Bowman's Beach)! Buckets, beach chairs, umbrellas, all the beach supplies you need. And a...

Luke, Stephanie, and Lisa made our stay so very wonderful. From the extremely clean and expansive cottage, friendly guests, welcome basket for our dog, massive amounts of shells, and breathtaking sunsets..Tropical Winds is the absolute best getaway. There is no size limit on dogs and the pet fee is only $15 per day.

A welcomed restful experience. Our stay at the Tropical Winds was a pleasure. The room was clean, with all that we needed. A friendly atmosphere, we began our day sitting in the lanai with a cup of coffee and greeting guests. Most of our time was spent walking the nearby spacious beach and picking up numerous varieties of shells. The...

We stayed one week during the month of July, 2013. It was terrific. The management is keen on creating a stress-free stay. It's not posh but it's a very clean facility with everything you need to create a memorable vacation. The location is somewhat secluded, but very close to shopping and other vacation attractions. Looking for quiet and a more...

Awesome Vacation. This was our second year in a row that we stay at Tropical Winds in Sanibel Florida, and let me tell you, we have officially named Sanibel our hidden Jewel. If peace, tranquility, and total relaxation is what you're looking for, this is the spot. And of course to separate it from the rest of the beaches out...

Loved this, in every respect. The beach is wide and deep, with no other hotels or public beach access close by. We found sand dollars, saw a manatee and porpoises, rode bikes to Captiva and around the island, and swam in the pool to cool off after a day at the beach. The cottages are old Florida: terrazo floors, wall...

We have stayed at Tropical Winds at least five times. We love it...so does our dog. The new managers are wonderful and the place is clean and well kept. If I had one complaint, it would be the furniture. Since Sanibel is not known for its night life, you do spend your evenings in your room. The furniture is so...
