Smaller quite place. In the middle of everything. Bike rental on site great for getting out & about.
location, amenities, availability of bikes, beach chairs and towel on site was a big plus! Linda and Nicole made us feel at home! We hope to return soon!!!
We loved the cottage, it was spacious, cute and had everything you would need.
The shower curtain was too short and water would cover the bathroom floor.
Staff was great. Would go out of their way to see you had whatever you needed. Manager couldn't be nicer.
nice atmosphere, friendly, private
thin sheets, cheap mattress
The property was very well kept and the staff was friendly and helpful.
The bed was very hard. At night, outside light lights up the room.
The property is beautiful and convenient location. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. (I wish I could live there year round) Old Florida charm. We'll definitely return.
The pool was not warm like we had expected, so the children were a little disappointed by that. We did see someone working on the pool equipment one day, so it's possible that it was being repaired and we just had bad luck with timing.
The cottage interior - nice spaces, comfortable.
Location very near main road as well as very near other units. Amenities not updated in a few decades, which is not a problem for me, but inconsistent with paying top dollar.
The relaxed atmosphere. The fact that it is easy to find, and has access to a very nice private beach 5 miles away. The beach bike rentals on site. The heated swimming pool.
They have a policy of not cleaning the bedrooms during your stay, so what with the sand and everything, it gets grotty in no time. I like to have my bed made while in a hotel, that's one of the reasons I go to hotels! To use the microwave & fridge we would have needed plates & cutlery, which wasn't provided.
The hospitality of the host, Linda The location is on the main road and easy to find restaurants, grocery stores, and entertainment. A small water area in the back of the apartment when the back door was opened.
A musty smell when the door was opened and lingered in the rooms. A urine smell from the headboard and behind it. Dog fur on the couches Too small of a shower that you can't bend over without hitting the sides. The whole facility is in need of major renovation. Not enough pots, pans, bakeware, plates, glasses, silverware in the kitchen area.
Not informed at check in that I could call from office for anything! Loud unruly people stayed there. Kept me up until almost 3 am. Property manager said oh why didn't you call . Simply put I shouldn't have to!!!! Should be renamed redneck inn!!!!
Nice staff. Fits your basic needs if the aim of your trip is to be outside on Sanibel & Captiva and not be stay around in the motels all day. Probably one of the best budget options on the island.
Extremely clean and well supplied with nice towels and bedding. Nicely decorated rooms and porches, beautiful landscaping, and a great little pool with many areas to relax outside. Friendly and accomodating staff. Definitely will stay on our next trip!
We arrived late and other guests had really wasted parking spaces. Two more cars could have easily parked at the end of the pool if they had not parked so far away from one another and had pulled nearer the two outer edges. If the spaces were numbered or somehow marked with divisions, then maybe this would not be an issue. Other than parking, this was a perfect booking!
The room was comfortable and staff was very helpful.
Close to everything and my father lives on the Island so convenient.
The quality of the place has gone down since we first started staying there 10 years ago. The laundry facilities were disgusting and we were told that when I asked to use them but was advised the owner didn't want to spend $$ fixing it up. Recycled water in the pool?? what is that? And in October, I found the rates very high for the place. We wont be staying there aqain. For $25.00 more a night we can stay at the Marriott!
We are definitely staying there every time from now on.
Property was clean, and well maintained, while being an older property,...but that is part of the charm. Area behind our room was a natural preserve with an eagles nest that we were able to observe from rear patio.
Pillows were plentiful, but very hard...not very comfortable. Outside lighting was distracting at night. perhaps adding room darkening shades,...or light diffuser's would help.
Nicely decorated inside and outside Super super friendly and helpful staff Good location, near Lighthouse beach Food and restaurants nearby
I wish we could stay longer :-) Bathroom could be bigger
It's a real find,the rooms were comfortable and the owners very welcoming.a short walk to coffee bar and general store and restaurants,the beach ic five mins by car.
No real issues to mention,it's just a very traditional family owned experience,
The manager (Linda) was very friendly and helpful with giving us directions and her recommendations for restaurants and sites. The location is great giving easy access to places on both Sanibel and Captiva.
Staff was there for us 24/7. For an inn at the price we got was unbelievable. . We came here as guests and leaving as friends. . We spent only 3 night 2 days. But all I have to say is wow awesome cozy and comfortable.
Nothing to say left us speechless. On the service
We arrived to the most wonderful greeting at the front desk - Linda is awesome! Ron gave us a great tour of the property, which was really beautiful and we loved our accommodations. We had the best get-away, more than I had imagined. We look forward to many return trips! - Laura and Mike
I loved this place. I have been staying in Sanibel for years and always thought this place looked nice. I was not disappointed. The staff was so helpful and friendly, our room had a really cozy and beachy feel to it; I definitely felt like I was on a relaxing vacation every time we stepped into our room. The pool was nice, and so was the view from our room. I loved this place, and I was happy while we stayed there. The decorations and room were fun and relaxing, and you can't beat the value! Would recommend. So happy with my vacation!
I had no problems with anything. The only thing I could foresee others perhaps having a problem with was that there really wasn't much of a cooking area, but we stayed in one of the smaller rooms. I'd be willing to bet the larger suites and cottages have kitchenettes and/or kitchen areas.
I love the location and the cuteness of the place, staff was super nice and the place looks amazing. Very clean.
Really small bathroom
