Week In Sanibelby Marcella
Lovely condo with pool and walkway to beach. We especially liked sitting on the screened lanai in the evening to watch the thunderstorms. Condo has nicely updated bathrooms. Plenty of space for 3-4 people.
Great location and well furnished home!by Jeff Stephens
This is our third rental in this Sanibel Bayous neighborhood and the first using Cottages to Castles. This home and furnishing have been well thought out and has everything you can want/need for your stay. All updated appliances and cookware, plenty of beach chairs, floats, etc. If anything the description from the websites do not do it justice. It is very well kept, clean, and clearly labeled. The owner has done a great job to make sure all electronics are easy to set up. We had our family of four and two small dogs, there was plenty of space for everyone. The best feature of this house is its proximity to Bowman’s Beach. It has its own pathways to the beach that is an easy walk or even better if you bring or rent your own bikes. If you turn right after the bridge, you can bike down another ten minutes and literally have your own private beach. The community pool is only steps from the back patio. It was great to cool down and relax at the end of the day. In our entire month in the house, we did not see another person using the pool. They have fully enclosed the back patio making it a fully air conditioned Florida room where most of our time was spent. Plenty of board games and books available. The downstairs game room (a little hot in July though) was fun and used in the late evenings. They also have another full size refrigerator downstairs which was great for all your drinks and ice. We have gotten to know a few of the neighbors during our past visits, they are warm and welcoming. It is a quiet neighborhood and I’m sure they want to keep it that way. Cottages to Castles were attentive, and professional in their correspondence. I was a little hesitant with their no credit card policy but their attention to details and communication made up for it. A few hiccups but nothing that would affect our thoughts on the house and location. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Will hopefully visit Blue Pelican again!
Exactly as described!by Nicole
This is a great property with beautiful views steps away from the beach. It has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Communication was wonderful before our arrival, during, and at check out.
A piece of paradiseby Chrystal
This place was very cozy and right there on the beach. I would recommend anyone to stay here. The beds were very comfy.
Great Experienceby Jeff
The unit is very clean. The bathrooms have recently been redone and are very nice. The dual vanity in the master is great. The linens and towels were clean and there were extras as needed. The kitchen is well stocked. We tend to cook a lot on our vacations and had everything we needed for food prep and cooking. The complex was very quiet while we were there. There are renovations happening in the unit next door but the workers never started early and any disruptions were minimal. Communication with the manager (Sharon) was prompt and detailed. The pool was always clean and the walk to the beach is only a minute or two. There are beach chairs, a wagon, and beach towels. What a nice touch. I mentioned a couple of maintenance issues when we checked out and was assured that they would be dealt with promptly. We’ve rented a lot of vacation condos in the last 10 years and this is the nicest one we’ve stayed at.
Annual Sanibel Tripby Paul
322 was as advertised. Everything you need for a beach trip was provided. Decent view from the lanai room the water without actually being on the water. Unit was very clean and beds comfortable. Close to everything including the causeway. Saw Manatee and dolphin several times from the Mariner Point pier. Look forward to possibly renting again next year.
Great location close to beachby Debi OBrien
What a great condo. We loved the decor and we had everything we needed to get us through our time. The view was spectacular and the condo felt like home. Thanks to the owners for providing a great place to stay and to Sharon and staff at Cottages to Castles for handling the details. See you next year!
Amazing Views!by Lauren
This condo has amazing views. You can sit at the dining room table and see the beach/ocean (and see from the couches and master). The couches and chair are super comfortable. The condo was extremely clean when we arrived. The kitchen has everything you need to cook anything! There was a cooler in the closet to take to the beach. On the screened in lanai there were four beach chairs and a really nice umbrella. Someone had also left behind some noodles for us to enjoy! We left behind a boogie board for others to enjoy. ???? The bathrooms are updated and nice. Having a washer and dryer is so nice! We got a little hot sleeping at night as there are no ceiling fans in the condo. The thermostat is set at 72 and you cannot go below that temp. We found it comfortable except for a few nights. A ceiling fan would have made this a non-issue. We loved not having to worry about a key and the parking spot is directly across from the stairs–very convenient. There is also an elevator if needed. It takes minutes to walk to the gorgeous beach. The pool is also close and nice. The grounds are well taken care of and beautiful. Overall we would highly recommend this condo. Sharon was wonderful and we appreciated the newspapers, coupons, and all the welcome info. Make sure you go eat at Doc Ford’s and eat the Yucatan shrimp–it’s AMAZING and Gramma Dot’s (super close by) for their famous coconut shrimp. We cannot wait to go back!
We loved our stay! The location was great – it was nice and quiet with beautiful views of the landscaping and the ocean. The condo itself was decorated very nice and cozy. The beds were comfy which is hard to find. Loved how organized everything was – there were labels for all the light switches plus in the cabinets for the dishes !! Lots of attention to detail and thought into making the stay perfect. Also providing beach towels and chairs was a great plus!!!
Family Beach Weekby Erin
Our stay at the Island Beach Club was everything we were looking for for our family beach week. The property is well kept, in close proximity to the pool and is a quick walk to the beach. The beach is private and peaceful, and our tiny humans had the best time. The property had everything we needed for the pool or beach as well. We look forward to another trip to Sanibel soon!
Loggerhead Cay 143 has everything you needby Matt Bynum
This was our first time visiting Sanibel and our condo was perfect for us. Wonderfully decorated and equipped with everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. The team at Cottages to Castles were very professional and our experience from arrival to check-out couldn’t have been better. We will certainly visit Sanibel again.
5 Starby Julie
Great condo and quick walk to the beach.
Our family of 5 and our small dog stayed in this beautiful condo for a week and did not want to leave. Sanibel Island is absolutely amazing. We loved this property and the condo. Everything was clean upon arrival and Cottages to Castles was a breeze to work with. I definitely recommend this condo and Cottages to Castles!! Thank you for our wonderful family beach vacation!! Cannot wait to come back in the future!!
Amazing condominium with gorgeous views of the beach!by Katy
We had the absolute best time at our stay in Sanibel. This condo had everything we needed and more. The views were amazing and the short walk on the boardwalk to the private beach was perfect. We will be staying here again!!
Happy to have stayedby Steve
Very spacious condo for the 5 of us. Everything worked and there were no surprises. Comfortable beds, nice sofas and chairs, we were very happy to have stayed in Q401.
Sandpiper was great!by Shelli
Had a nice week! Sandpiper was very great.
Very Thankfulby Don
Very grateful to Sharon for always being so helpful–hope to return next year.
Great View!by Alan
Cottages to Castles does a great job communicating everything you’ll need for your stay. The pics online are accurate. What you see is what you get. Great views from the lanai. Easy access to a beautiful beach. It’s great for swimming and shelling. This is a perfect location. The place was very clean but could use a freshening. Other than that we had a great experience. Would stay at the same place again.
Sanibel Getawayby Dennis & Diane
Tarpon Beach 203 was exactly what we were looking for in a short getaway! The condo was neat, clean and everything in perfect order. Carport parking was an added bonus. Hope to return in the future. Thanks for your hospitality!
Sanibel Paradiseby Robert
Every aspect of our stay was perfect. Beautifully appointed condo with picturesque views of the ocean and pool. Would highly recommend to any travelers vacationing in Sanibel Island.
Wonderful location and comfortable condoby Nicole and Jeff
Beautiful setting on the Gulf. We stayed here with friends and enjoyed coffee on the lanai, shelling on the beach, and the proximity to the biking/walking trail.
Loved the views!by Diane
Enjoyed our stay. Had everything we could possibly need to host Easter brunch. Loved the views. Property grounds were lovely.
Fabulous Propertyby Ronald
Fabulous property. Very comfortable and close to beach. Can’t wait to go back!
The condo was great and was in an excellent location!
Great condo in the perfect location on Sanibelby Kelly
Great condo in the perfect location on Sanibel. Easy to get everywhere close to the beach. The condo had everything we needed and the online materials ahead of time or spot on. We had one communication with the property manager and they were incredibly responsive. We’ve stayed at Loggerhead Cay multiple times and this was our favorite condo not only in location but also decor.
Wonderful location and comfortable condoby David
Sanibel is such a wonderful place to relax and this complex puts you on one of the best stretches of beach, while allowing you to walk or bike to nearby trails, shops, restaurants and grocery. We rented bikes for the week and even biked up to Captiva one day! Simple but clean accommodations make this an easy recommendation.
First time staying on Sanibelby Tina
Nice view of the ocean, pool was perfect as well as the water temperature. Renting bikes would be recommended, and appreciated the location of this condo as it felt close to grocery, captiva and causeway
Nice Place!by Eric
Nice place! Everything was clean upon arrival. Property managers were very prompt in responding to questions.
Very Nice!by John
This is a great spot!
Beautiful home located centrally on the island. Cyclists paradise, and lots of great places to eat.
Just What We Wantedby Jean
We have friends in Island Beach Club so we were thrilled to be in the same plan. The unit was in a great location and well appointed. Looking forward to returning next year.
Had a wonderful time!by Joe
We had a wonderful time at Tarpon Beach 203! Great location and the condo was nice and comfortable.
Relaxing Getawayby Jody
This was our first time renting and wasn’t sure what to expect, but it was a pleasant experience. While this condo is not right on the beach, it does have a nice view from the lanai. It appears the condo development is well kept up. The pool is heated and had enough chairs if you wanted a different place to relax than the beach. The management company was excellent and answered all of my questions. They were very easy to get ahold of if needed. While the condo on the surface was clean, a few of the area rugs needed to be washed. The kitchen had everything we needed when we chose to eat in. Because of how the A/C is installed on the roof, you are not allowed to adjust the temperature under 72 degrees. While this temperature was fine for the main rooms, the bedrooms did get a little warm at night. The condo is also dog friendly which was nice for us to have our small dog with us. Beach chairs were provided as well. I would recommend this condo if you want a relaxing getaway.
We Love Loggerhead Cayby Agnes
This condo unit is clean and bright. Everything you need for a comfortable stay. The view is fantastic and you can hear the surf from the master bedroom.
Great Beach Access!by Lisa
Nice & bright, clean.
Very Quiet Condo on the Beachby Kris
Beautiful, clean VERY quiet condo on the beach. Kitchen had everything you need for regular cooking. Pool was nice and chairs are always available. My only suggestion is they need to upgrade the cable. We didn’t watch much tv at all (news and a game or 2 at night) and having non HD and a super small tv in the bedroom was frustrating. Other than that, it was great!
Beautiful Condo and Friendly Staffby Deb
Easy to feel at home in this lovely condo. Quiet, corner unit — walk to the beach in a minute or two. I loved cooking in the kitchen (which was well-stocked with matching plates, bowls, and glassware) and eating breakfast on the lanai. Friendly, helpful staff took care of 2 minor issues right away.
Perfect Way To End The Yearby Cathy
We have stayed at Loggerhead Cay before and really like the overall property and its location. This particular condo is well situated between the pool and the beach, with very lovely views. Linens, furniture, beach accessories all very good. We had one maintenance issue with the dishwasher and the rental agency sent a person within hours. They also went above and beyond to help coordinate a grocery delivery in advance so there would be food in the condo when we arrived, which was on Christmas Day when much of the island and all of the stores are (appropriately) closed. We are so thankful for our chance to close out our year, in the beautiful paradise that is Sanibel!
Perfect. Just Perfectby Sarah
This condo is beautiful, spacious, comfortable, and ideally located. With the elevator right at the parking space, it is easy to move in. With a fully stocked beach closet with chairs, umbrellas, and other beach/pool items, we were able to enjoy the beach immediately upon arrival. We spent a lot of time on the lanai and enjoyed the views, the breeze, and the sunsets. We are looking forward to booking again!
Wonderful Holiday Weekby Mary
Our 3 generation family group enjoyed this Sanibel condo! We found lots to explore and do all week; the pool was an especially popular spot for the preschoolers. We were comfortable in the unit but did experience a couple problems with HVAC controls and TV functions. Both were handled easily & promptly by text (after business hours) with Cottages to Castles management. All in all: Super!
Corner of Paradiseby John
Thank you for sharing your little corner of paradise. We had a lovely and relaxing time. Your home is so warm and inviting, and has everything needed for a perfect vacation. We made beautiful memories.
We Had a Wonderful Vacation!by Pat and Jeanne
Thank you so much for sharing your Sanibel home with us. Love the cheery colors – and the view!!! We have been coming to Sanibel for 37 years – and all but one stay have been at Loggerhead. We had a wonderful vacation! Our daughter and husband (married in September) were engaged at the Mad Hatter two years ago so, of course, we had to dine there. They came down for one week – we all enjoyed the beach – lots of walks – and deciding where to go to dinner each day! Hope to be back again!
We Are Now Spoiledby Bob & Lori
We had a wonderful time in your condo – we are now spoiled! Our trip to Sanibel included an alligator, manatee, jellyfish, baby turtles and more! Our view of the beach and trips to the beach were fantastic! PS We loved the decor!
The Perfect Beachfront Placeby Kera & Kylie
It is certainly and interesting year, but having this condo as a peaceful oasis was fantastic. Work breaks to stare at the ocean view were a must and we generally had good weather. Just being able to get outside in warm weather has been amazing! The newly re-modeled place was also fantastic. The perfect beachfront place. Can’t wait to return in 2021!
Our Happy Placeby Marianne
Having a great time- as always- at our Happy Place. Love the condo, location and pool area!
Back to Paradiseby Carol
I so enjoyed coming back to Paradise after being away for 3 years. My husband and I owned a condo in Sanibel for 25 years and spent much time escaping the winters in CT. Unfortunately my husband passed and I sold our place and haven’t returned since 2018. My children and grandkids came with me for the first week and friends second week. So enjoyed staying at your condo and sitting every morning with the great view. Back to Paradise did my heart good and I will definitely be back soon. Thanks for the rental. Your place is lovely!
Beautiful, comfortable condo with a wall of windows surrounded by trees and a view of the ocean – so peaceful. Well-equipped kitchen and lots of beach chairs/towels. Management was very helpful and communicative. We’d stay here again!
Very Nice Propertyby David
Very nice property, well maintained unit
Best Vacation Ever!by Amy
Better than we could have imagined. From planning to leaving, everything went smoothly. Gorgeous condo, awesome view, quiet and peaceful.
Great Condoby Bryan
Wonderful Home!by Kim
Miles Away is a truly lovely home! It is simply one of the best properties I’ve stayed in! The home was spacious and well-organized, and it made working remotely and vacationing a breeze! The kitchen was supplied with everything you could need, from plates and silverware to a mixer and roasting pan! I was able to cook all my meals (even though I would certainly get more meals from Paper Fig next time I visit!) easily, and never had to go, Oh gosh, I wish there were a ___ in the kitchen! And I know this sounds silly, but it was so nice that the knives were SHARP! I even noted which brand they were so I could get some for my home kitchen! I also appreciated that there were ample cleaning supplies in the rental, which made keeping it sparkling clean so easy! A quick sweep or vacuum once a day and the house was good to go! As well, there were lots of linens and blankets so you could wash one set while putting fresh linens on the bed. A nice touch! The neighborhood was very friendly, and it was a quick bike down to my preferred beach location, and a short ride to Bailey’s to grab the morning paper and the to-die-for pecan rolls. I have to admit, I didn’t do many activities on the island, but that was my whole reason for visiting – I wanted a month of quiet and time to stroll on the beach, shell to my heart’s delight (and the shelling was fabulous!), and read, relax and recuperate after the past year. And Miles Away made me feel just that – Miles Away! I traveled with my pup to Florida, and Miles Away was a perfect home for us. It was so easy to clean and make sure that my pup was comfortable and enjoying his time, too. My only recommendation to pet owners is to be cautious on the island! This has zero impact on how much I loved Miles Away, but do be aware it’s in a nature preserve and there is living, thriving nature all around! This is one of the reasons I chose to stay here – I loved seeing all of the birds, turtles, and various wildlife, and I spotted a few species I’d never encountered before. The birding, as other have noted about Sanibel, is fabulous, and it’s right outside your door! But I was extra careful with our pup since I encountered coyotes about a tenth of a mile away, and pedaled VERY quickly after an 8-foot alligator crossed my path on my way to Bailey’s. So keep an eye out for the natives and keep your pup on a leash! In short, it was a perfectly lovely trip, and I can’t wait to visit again!
We love Sanibelby Natalie
It was a great getaway! The property manager was amazing!! We will be back!!! Perfect location! We saw so many dolphins and a great pool and view!
We had an amazing, relaxing timeby John
We rented this property on short notice. The process was quick and easy. Nicely maintained unit on a nice stretch of beach. Close to grocery store and dining. Would rent again.
Beautifully Decorated – Extremely Cleanby Tom
Stayed with a family of four. Two adults and two teens. The condo was as advertised, beautifully decorated.Great location with easy walk to on property beach. The unit was extremely clean and with great amenities. Plenty of room and a beautiful view of the the gulf from the living room and lanai. Easy three minute walk to the on property beach. Would definitely stay again.
2021 Sanibel Stayby Jan
Wonderful! Great communication with Cottages to Castles. Great property for all ages.
Great location, friendly staff, overall a great experienceby Amaury
Very easy process, great communication and follow up.
Great Location, Lovely Viewby Cheryl
Overall it was a great time and decent place. Location was awesome and a quite neighborhood with pleasant guests/tenants. There were also some beach toys, chairs, etc although you could tell they were well used. The bathrooms and kitchen were nice and mostly updated. Overall good experience. My kids had a blast.
Beach Weekby Maggie
We stay at Sundial every summer for our family reunion. We have 9 families that rent condos there to get together from several states. This condo was very clean and nicely furnished. We eat out most of the week so I’m not sure how well equipped the kitchen is for cooking big meals but it was very adequate for the amount of cooking that we did.
Relaxing Respiteby Julie
The rental property is about a 2 minute walk from your door to the beach. The unit was clean and well furnished. Towels were plentiful as well as kitchen supplies. There are both regular and Keurig coffee pots. The AC is very cold in the main living areas but not quite so much in the Master suite. The pool was very nice and not crowded at all. The beach supplies were adequate. We would certainly stay here again.
Perfect Summer Getaway!by Melissa
Property was clean and well stocked. Had a great time.
Sanibel Stayby Michelle
Very nice condo; clean, well stocked. Property management very responsive.
Great Week Awayby Scott
The property is kind of back and away but still with easy access to all the island has to offer. It was a very quiet and relaxing stay. The shelling was incredible.
Perfect Locationby Jen
The condo location was perfect and the property was quiet. We loved looking out at the water everyday. The unit was comfortable and clean and close to pretty much everything. We fell in love with the island and hope to be back soon!
Great Locationby Valerie
The property location was great. The condo was very clean. The beds were comfy. It had everything we needed. Cottages to Castles team was great to work with and we would stay here in the future.
First Stay In Sanibelby Sonja
Great location and accommodations. Quiet, clean and beautiful!
Great Location Near the Beachby Paul
First impression was that this building was constructed to withstand some serious high winds and heavy rainfall. And during the week Hurricane Elsa developed and gave us a taste of the impact from a Cat 1 hurricane but we felt totally safe and secure in our lodging as we watched the system pass through out in the Gulf of Mexico. We were a party of five, four adults and one youth, and had ample room to spread out and enjoy our stay. The kitchen wasn’t huge but adequate for the few meals we actually prepared during our weeklong stay which were mostly breakfasts and a couple of suppers. Other than that, the island is filled with a variety of restaurants to meet almost any taste for good home cooked meals. The beach is a short walk from the condo; about the length of a football field but on a well maintained pathway. We had a great time and are already making plans to return to the same spot next year, if it is still available.
Beautiful Getaway Retreatby Christine
Our accommodations were most of all, clean! So important these days! It was quite spacious with plenty of room to spread out if needed. Nice view of pool and waterfront from both balconies. Great shower! Plenty of towels, pillows, linens to use. Love that there was a washer and dryer so we didn’t have to go home with bags of dirty laundry! Pool was so refreshing!
Beautiful Locationby Allison
This was our first time visiting the Island and we were not disappointed! Beautiful condo with an even better view and location. Will definitely be back!
Sanibel Hidden Gemby Jennifer
Family friendly condo with good size pool (deep end 8’) and steps away from beach. Easy to enjoy the beach and pool with family. There is assigned parking which is a great perk after any outing from dining or excursions.
Location and beach access can’t be beat!
Great place, great stay!by Rebecca
We enjoy the Island Beach Club and this property in particular. It’s decor is fun and comfortable. Thank you–enjoyed our time!
Perfect location, nice view & love the pool! Great for all ages.by Jessica
We really enjoyed our stay in Sanibel and at this Tarpon Beach unit! This was our 2nd time visiting Sanibel, and we chose to stay at Tarpon Beach again (but in a different unit) because we love the location, proximity to the beach and pool. We love how this complex is small because the pool is never crowded and the grounds feel private even when many tourists are in town. We stayed on the top floor last time which had an amazing view, and even this lower-level unit had a great view of the ocean. We enjoyed many breakfasts and dinners on the screened-in porch thanks to the view! Tarpon Beach worked well for us when we previously visited as a family of three, and it was also great this time when we came back as a family of five. We were happy this unit had the necessary basics for the beach – towels, beach chairs, Tupperware and a cooler. The unit feels very spacious and comfortable, and having a washer/dryer was key for a beach trip with young kids. My constructive feedback for the unit owner is to please get more hooks for the bathrooms and possibly the screened-in porch. A few hooks would go a long way. ???? We booked through VRBO but Cottages to Castles managed the stay. They were incredibly accommodating from beginning to end. Our key broke in the lock, and they had a locksmith come out and fix the issue within 25 minutes or less. We were really impressed with all the rental companies, including Billy’s Bikes and the tent/sand toy company. It was so helpful to have everything delivered and picked up from the complex. The companies made the trip hassle-free from start to finish. We love Sanibel and will definitely come back again! We highly recommend Tarpon Beach.
Super clean. Very close to the beach. Perfect view.by Kevin
This condo was fantastic. It was located very close to the beach and the view of the ocean from the balcony and living room is great. Super clean and had everything we needed.
Great Beach Getaway!by Becky
Easy arrangements, great property, limited units meaning less people around during COVID. Unit had everything needed. Highly recommend!
A lot to likeby James
We liked this rental. We love its layout. Very comfortable furniture. Extremely well-stocked kitchen. Nice appliances.
Beautiful View and Condoby Seth
We had a wonderful time. The views were amazing from the condo and the place was really nice and had everything we needed.
We enjoyed our stay at Sandpiperby Warren
We liked the secluded environment. The condo was clean and well maintained.
Great Vacation Locationby Brittany
Great vacation location, and very nice people to rent from.
Nice and Quietby Kirsten
Good stuff: Great location, nice clean unit with plenty of kitchenware (and nice big kitchen). The beach towels provided were great, parking out of the sun, lots of space indoors and we loved the screened in porch. The pool was lovely and the beach access was great. Other stuff: internet was iffy inside, but was only a problem when we had to sign in for work. When I say quiet, I mean it. There were no children during our visit so outside was super quiet also.
Lovely Getawayby Diana
Extremely well-appointed unit close to the beach. Loved it!
Very nice, spacious property with lovely access to canals and San Carlos Bayby Robert
We enjoyed our stay at Mariner Pointe 322 despite some issues that arose due a power surge on the island. Sharon, from Cottages to Castles was outstanding in assisting us with these issues, working diligently to insure we would still have a very pleasant stay. Kudos to Sharon!
Great Family Timeby Carol
Great family time! Thanks for the hospitality.
Very clean, quiet and fantastic location.
LOVED our week here! Location was great!! Whether we were headed into town to do something, or headed to the beach, the location made everything easy access! The condo was clean and decorated well! My favorite part of the condo was the screened in porch with the view of the ocean! I spent lots of time on the porch reading and napping!! We can’t wait to come back one day!!
Great condo with amazing location on the beachby Julia
Nice condo. Quiet pool. Great view. One minute walk to beach. Great location, within an easy bike ride of shopping, restaurants, grocery store, and Shell Museum.
Great Place!by John
This is a great place to spend a week! Sanibel offers plenty of condo options, but Tarpon Bay is very quiet, convenient and central to all activities. The condo unit was very clean, well-equipped and well furnished. The master bed was extremely comfortable! Highly recommended!
We couldn’t have asked for a better week. Such a relaxing atmosphere and beautiful location.by Anitra
The pictures just don’t do it justice. The condo was beautifully decorated and had all the comforts of home. Just steps away from the pool and the beach while being off the beaten path. Absolutely perfect. Can’t wait to get back there as soon as possible!
We LOVE Sanibelby Kelly
We LOVE Sanibel. We have a lot of families that come to Sundial for Spring Break and this is the condo to stay! We had teens with us and it was perfectly spaced for everyone. Plenty of towels, beach chairs, beds, pools, and more. We will rent this condo again and definitely recommend. We’ve been coming for many years and this unit was by far the best one we’ve stayed in. Thanks for having us!!! #MemoriesMade
Wonderful Place!by Hattie
This condo has everything! It truly felt like a home away from home!
Spring Break During Covidby Betty
We had an excellent time on Sanibel and at this property. The condominium was lovely and had everything we needed for a delightful week. We were pleased that the majority of people in the area were adhering to safety protocols which led to a relaxing vacation.
Excellent Propertyby Linda
Excellent property for family, spacious condo with everything needed by a family to enjoy beautiful Sanibel island
Tarpon Getawayby Alyson
Perfect location. Second time staying on the property and first time in this unit. No need for a rental car, just a bike. The view is incredible.
We did not want to leave!!by Wendy
Such a wonderful stay in Sanibel! The condo was lovely……beautifully decorated, nice layout with big windows for the water view. Well-appointed kitchen and laundry room. Comfortable couches and nice, big smart TV. Bedrooms very comfortable, nice linens and towels. We LOVED it!! Thanks for letting us enjoy your piece of paradise!
Very conveniently located. Great beach and right on the bike path.
A Piece of Paradiseby Sherl
We always enjoy a trip to Sanibel and now we always want to stay at this condo. Beautifully updated, amazing view and had everything we needed and then some. Can’t wait to return!
Florida Getawayby Robert
Great time, great place!
Great condo with amazing location on the beachby Jane
We had a great time staying at this condo on the beach. The location is amazing with easy access to the beach and bike paths. It is a short bike ride to the grocery stores and restaurants. The pool was never very busy and the general community at this location were very kind and welcoming. A great place to stay on Sanibel Island! Can’t wait to return.
Fantastic Locationby Renee
We loved our stay. The location was fantastic!
Really Nice Placeby Belle
The unit was really nice. Nice view too. Checkin process was a little inconvenient as you have to drive to the office (several miles away) to check in and out. And only key access even though the door has keypads. But not a deal breaker for the lovely place.
Wonderful Stayby Susan
We rented from December 26th to January 2nd. Our property was clean and updated. I would not change a thing. The pool was heated and the shelling was awesome. Cottages to Castles was so easy to work with.
Great Stayby Steven
Great condo in a great complex on a great stretch of beach! What’s not to like? Nothing! Recommended!
Pet and Owner Friendlyby Carrie
We enjoyed our stay at IBC. This was our first experience traveling with our dog and we were pleased to find this pet-friendly unit. Everything was spotless and in working order. The unit was well equipped with all we needed and more. The management company was also great to work with. They communicated promptly about all our questions and are very knowledgeable about the area. Highly recommend!
Condo Was As Statedby Kevin
Close to beach and activities; property manager very attentive
Loved it so much we rebooked for 2021by Vanessa
Amazing view and steps away from the sand. We have stayed 3 different times at Loggerhead Cay. Gorgeous /clean/modern decor, up to date appliances. Loved rocking recliners/sofa. Was clean. Great touches throughout the house. We loved this condo so much we rebooked for 2021.
Perfect for a quiet getaway.by Sheila Mershon
The condo was spacious, clean and well equipped. The views from this location of the sunrises to sunsets were absolutely beautiful. This was my first time staying at this location and using Cottages to Castles – but will not be my last.
A beautiful place!!!!!! Absolutely loved it!!! Was such a relaxing stay!!by Kelly
Will definitely stay here again!!!!
Great Covid Respiteby Paul
Yes, we traveled to Florida in the middle of the pandemic. The condo offered a great respite from being at home. It was spotless and we had been assured it had been thoroughly cleaned prior to our arrival. We enjoyed wonderful family time walking the beach, relaxing and riding bikes. Because of the pandemic, we chose to avoid restaurants (although we did make several trips to Joey’s for yummy frozen custard) and found the kitchen to be well-equipped for cooking. We appreciated the updated bathrooms and the overall feel/comfort of the condo. We brought 2 of our own beach chairs and a beach umbrella, however, there were plenty of chairs in the storage unit. While bikes are not provided, we rented bikes from Billy’s and had them delivered. Easy! During the day, the internet was reliable, our college age daughter was able to stream her video lectures. However, we were unable to stream movies in the evening. This is not a game changer for us and we would rent this condo again. We have been going to Sanibel for the past 25 years and Sandpiper is our favorite complex. Easy and user friendly check-in/check-out, friendly staff at Cottages to Castles that were available to answer any questions prior to our arrival. Highly recommend!
Fantastic Weekby Rebecca
We had a fantastic week in F320. Condo had everything we needed and is nicely appointed…very relaxing and enjoyable trip.

Sharon and her team are just awesome! We will definitely be working with them again for future stays. Love this condo, it felt more like home at the beach than anywhere we have stayed previously. The attention to detail of this condo is perfect!
Shells were fantastic!by Dereck
Beautiful Condo! Shells were fantastic on the beach – WOW! Spacious and clean – THANK YOU. Saw dolphins, so many birds, lizards & a snake! Kids loved the pool!
Wonderful Stayby Karen
The condo was exactly as seen and described on VRBO. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and the close proximity to the beach. Highly recommend.
Beautiful View of the Beachby Nilar
Great location, well maintained, quiet and family friendly. The condo was spanking clean and well equipped. We definitely recommend this location. Thank you Cottages to Castles team!
Enjoyed Our Stayby Laura
My family and I stayed at this location for 4 weeks and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We would stay here again. The Property Management staff was very responsive and attentive to needs throughout our stay. The condo is spacious and clean with plenty of room for 3 adults and 2 children + 2 small dogs. The property was clean and had all of the comforts of home. I worked from the condo during the week. The wi-fi was sufficient with minimal connection issues. The storage closet was also stocked with beach toys, chairs, umbrella, etc AND a wagon to transport everything to the beach. I would rate this location a 10/10. No complaints.
Beautiful Placeby Robin
This condo is finished beautifully with a beach theme. Absolutely clean and brand new. State of the art appliances. Location in complex gives great beach views. Just perfect. Great location on island. Complex pool is great. Beach is fabulous. Had a wonderful two-week vacation. Will definitely be back. Had booked for one week and decided to stay an additional week, as Covid-19 was unfolding during our stay. We were still able to enjoy the beach, do some bike riding and eat take-out. Stay at home was easy at the condo. Beautiful place! We had everything we needed and more. We want to to make Sanibel a family vacation each year. Thanks so much!
We LOVED Our Stay!by Grace
This was our first trip to Sanibel and we had a wonderful time!! This condo was perfect for our family. It was a super short walk to the beach, we could not have asked for more! The condo itself was in great condition and I called it home, we were so comfortable there. I told my family that I want to come back next year to the exact same unit, but this time I want to stay longer! Communication with property management was always friendly and timely, big thanks to Sharon for all your help!!
Covid Vacationby Pamela
Tarpon Bay was ideal for a vacation as we could go to a not crowded beach and do pool time when it was empty or had 1-3 other people. With 3 kids it was ideal for bike riding, getting to Bailey’s for groceries, the ice cream store, and best of all Gene’s 2 bookstores. We will definitely be back.
March Island Beach Clubby Rena
This property is beautifully decorated and well equipped with everything you need. Appliances top notch. Many kitchen gadgets and supplies. The property has a beautiful heated pool. Only 5 minutes from grocery stores.
Great Location!by Vera
The condo is in a great location. It is a relatively small complex right on the beach and has a pool. We had a great ocean view from the master and living room and balcony. The kitchen was fully stocked with all necessities. Furniture is comfortable and decor is tasteful.
Beautiful Condoby Dereck
Everything in the condo was brand new! From the cabinets to the furniture. Great size for the price and perfect location. Our family of 6 loved it (4 little ones). Property management was great as well, easy check in, arranged a high chair for us, 1st class service.
Great Stayby Annette
The condo was very clean, well stocked and comfortable. Short walk to the beach and close to the grocery store and restaurants. Would definitely recommend this condo and location. Hoping to return next year!
Great Placeby Jennifer
Exactly as advertised. Great location. Property management team was very responsive and helpful
Nice condo, very clean and everything I needed for laundry and dishes. Loved the bed in the master bedroom. Amy and Sharon were great to work with.
Like the Locationby Judy
This was our 8th stay in Sanibel and at Mariner Pointe. We just really like the location and the wildlife we see. Working with Cottages to Castles was so easy. We will use them again.
Just What We Wanted!by Dan
Location is everything and this place is just what we wanted. Serene and natural surroundings. Neighbors were friendly. We got to use the pool, shuffleboard and tennis court to play pickle ball. Each unit has a storage room for beach supplies and I was able to keep my electric bike in the storage room because there was an electric outlet there. The bike trails around this location are the best. The walk to the beach is a very natural setting. The view from the condo is just the best and the condo itself was clean, well decorated and loaded with amenities. I can’t stress enough how clean the place was. We will be back.
Fun In The Sunby Marsha
Great location for this complex – close to everything on Sanibel and also the option to avoid traffic when going to Captiva. Unit was wonderful with great ocean views, clean and everything we needed in the kitchen. Office staff very helpful as well. Great unit!!!
The condo was clean and beautiful. Great location. Sharon at Cottages to Castles was a dream to work with.
Beautiful Condo, Beautiful Views!by Amy
Loved this place! It’s hard to find a 3-bedroom property on Sanibel but this comfortably fit our family, 1 adult couple, separate adult and 2 kids. The kids loved the den with two twin beds. Cute property nicely maintained with pretty views of the ocean and beach.
Peaceful retreatby George
Lovely condo in a beautiful and peaceful location
Great Stayby Jeffrey
Property is well cared for, kids had fun in the pool, house is well equipped and clean. Would definitely come back.
Awesome Condo!by Mona
We loved the location of this condo. It’s just steps away from the beach and pool. The pool was heated and was great. Everyone at the complex was very friendly. We enjoyed walking the beach, swimming and golfing. It was a great vacation.
Sitting on the dock of the bayby Robert
Had a wonderful week on Sanibel. Property is just as described. Enjoyed the fishing pier and was visited by dolphins and manatees. Easy to get off and on the island from this property. Definitely would go back.
Condo is Amazingby Kitty
We had such and amazing time here! Your condo is amazing! We really enjoyed the patio and easy access to the beach!
Perfect getawayby Victoria
Sharon was wonderful to work with. Nice-professional-and quick to respond. The condo had everything we needed. The grounds are very well kept. The pool is nice and big. The view is just amazing. Cant wait to come back.
Miles Away was the perfect spot for an extended stay on Sanibel. Located close to everything the Island has to offer– beaches, bike path, Refuge, CROW, shopping and restaurants. Everything was easy- the house was ready for me and although it was exactly as the pictures and description stated it was still such a wonderful surprise- it was my home away from home. The house was clean and comfortable and any issue- not that there was anything big- Sharon & Amy at Cottages to Castles took care of it almost before I had the chance to send off an email. There are small touches of comfort throughout the house- I could not have asked for more, except hopefully to be able to come again soon.
Great Vacation Rentalby Nicole
Great condo for a wonderful stay in Sanibel. Right on the beach with a view of the pool and ocean. Quiet and small complex. Looking forward to staying again.
First Time To Sanibelby Randy
This was our first trip to Sanibel Island and we couldn’t have had a better time. Sharon with Cottages To Castles of Sanibel & Captiva, Inc. was absolutely great to work with. She was also very knowledgeable about where to eat! The unit was clean up arrival and had all the amenities we needed. They were able to rearrange the cleaning schedule to even get us in earlier than normal check-in. It even included a wagon, chairs, boogie boards and toys all for the beach. We will definitely be back!
The photos do not do the condo justice. Beautiful view from balcony and EXTREMELY close to the beach. Everything you could need for a beautiful relaxing oasis!
Quick Getawayby William
We had an awesome time staying at the Island Beach Club. Everything was wonderful and we truly enjoyed it all.
Sensational Sanibelby Michele
We love Sundial East. Unit Q-401 is exactly as advertised online. Great view of the gulf. Conveniently located near the elevator. The storage unit had a beach cart, beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards and other small beach toys. It was wonderful to have a washer and dryer in the unit. Our only issue was with the very slow WiFi connection. We would definitely book this location again.
Home Away From Homeby Anne
Loggerhead Cay was the best! Beach fabulous, quiet, friendly family atmosphere development, close to everything, shopping grand, updated unit exactly as pictured. Would rent again, highly recommend.
Sundial Vacationby Maggie
Everything was smooth and easy. The condo was clean and well equipped and easily accessible to the beach, pool bike and walking paths and dining. Would recommend to all my friends and family.
Great Vacation Rentalby Judith
Just as described, great location to beach and all restaurants, very friendly condo association managers.
Awesome Vacationby Penny
Awesome vacation I would definitely recommend this property!
Home Away From Homeby Kate
We can pay no higher compliment to Sharon and Cottages to Castles than to say that F320 really was a home away from home for our week there. The unit felt, to me, surprisingly larger than it appeared in the photographs and easily fit a family of 2 adults and 2 kids with, for a time, 2 grandparents. The unit was invitingly clean and exceptionally well appointed. By this I mean every conceivable item that we could have needed for the week was there, from a fully stocked kitchen (we cooked a lot) to W/D with detergent to basic toiletries in the bathrooms to extra bedding. The storage unit in front of the parking space was stocked with a beach wagon, chairs, kids toys, and beach umbrella. The AV unit includes a large flat panel TV and has subscriptions to Amazon Prime and Netflix through Roku. You can add additional subscription services that you personally might have (we temporarily logged into Discovery Go for example). The AC unit is quite strong. This coupled with the ceiling fans meant a very comfortable stay during a very hot June. The Island Beach Club itself is a wonderful property. Every day was split between the centrally located pool and beaches. The other residents were so very nice to spend a little time with- there’s even an area to grill in, which some other folks took advantage of. The immediately adjacent beach runs along Middle Gulf Drive (inclusive of Tarpon Beach) and its centrality meant pleasant bike rides/car rides to Lighthouse Beach, Bowman’s Beach, and Turner’s Beach/Blind Pass. As a shelling nut, this was pretty important to me! It’s also a convenient bike trip to Bailey’s and the northern reaches of the island. The checkout process was smooth as well, which amounts to being a good steward for any incoming vacationers. We definitely plan on returning in the future- we miss it too much to stay away!
All Was Wonderful!by Phyllis
All was wonderful!
April is beautiful on Sanibelby Yamila
The temperature was perfect. The unit was comfortable and nicely decorated, for the most part it looked as it appeared in the pictures. The condominium building is one of the nicest in Sanibel. The premises were pristine. I appreciated them for allowing us to bring our Yorkie. We love Sanibel!
Awesome! We had an awesome time loved – loved the condo! It was beautiful! The beach was great – 5 stars! Will definitely come back!!
Perfect Condo Locationby Chris
Perfect condo/location Pictures do not do this place justice ???? …great views everything you need was in the condo. Close to pool and it was wonderful hearing the ocean waves EVERY night from the living room/master bedroom.
Perfect Beach Vacationby Michele
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tarpon Beach #203. The condo was clean and had everything we needed. It was especially nice to have good beach chairs, an umbrella, and a cooler provided.
Quaint Sanibel Cottageby Kathy Gassman
Loved our stay at this truly quaint cottage! Sharon was superb to work with! She was always available to answer questions when needed. Perfect for us with heated pool and tennis court available. Can’t wait till next year. Thank you to all!!
We’d choose this unit again – we love Sandpiper Beachby Karen
We stayed with our two kids, and the condo was perfect. It had everything we needed, was very clean and comfortable. We love Sandpiper Beach for the quiet, the access to the beach and the great pool, and we would definitely choose this unit again. We appreciated all the informational emails about check-in and check-out. We didn’t have a single need while we were there because everything was great, but I know they would have been available if we had needed something. Thanks for a great week on the beautiful Sanibel island!
Lovely Beach Home!by Linda & Coal
We enjoyed staying in your lovely beach home! The proximity to the beach access is great. We love Sanibel and Thank You for sharing your house with us.
Our best family vacation – ever – 2nd to none!by Travis
Great stay on Sanibel Island-nice island pace!!! ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ We rented the Point of View home for a month over Christmas and New Years and loved everything about it. It’s charm, view, and private setting. Our four children enjoyed fishing, kayaking, and crabbing. They hardly ever touched their iPads!!! This has easily been our best family vacation, ever. Everything was perfect! My favorite part of the house is the Master Bathroom window! There was nothing I didn’t like! We tried our best to take good care of it. We had a wonderful Christmas here and had many adventures. The boys filleted their first fish, and I read two whole books. We’ll never forget our time at your amazing piece of paradise ???? Sharon, Amy, and Connie were great at making sure our experience was 2nd to none. We can’t wait to come back next year!!!????
Great Condo!by Carla
***** Great condo! Great place to vacation!
Four star family vacationby Tom
**** Located in the Sundial complex. The unit layout and furniture worked very well with two bedrooms and another space that can be closed off as a third bedroom, which would work well for kids/teens and even my adult son’s gaming setup. Nice that they provided beach chairs and umbrellas. Beach view was better than expected given it is towards the back of the building, but it was good. Only withholding one star for slow WIFI. Otherwise, no reservations to rent it again.
Highly recommend – felt connected to the beach!by Kristen
***** My family has been coming to Sanibel for over 40 years and have always rotated between the same two gulf side properties. We took a chance and stayed in unit 320F at Island Beach Club and were pleasantly surprised by how much we liked it! Typically we stay gulf front, but this unit was 2nd from the back. The view wasn’t nearly as good as gulf front, but we were pleased by how connected you still felt to the beach while in the unit. This particular condo had just been recently renovated and purchased 3 weeks prior to our stay. There were a few things lacking at first, but as soon as I made management aware, they were rectified. The Cottage to Castles management team were fantastic to work with (shout out to Sharon, Amy, Eric and Connie – thx!!!) We highly recommend this condo and will be back again!

The Perfect Place For Our Family of Fourby Benjamin
The Perfect Place For Vacation For Our Family of 4! ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Great location on Sanibel Island, quiet, and peaceful. We saw dolphins, a manatee, and many other animals/birds. The condo was spacious and had everything we needed from kitchen tools to beach toys. We really enjoyed our stay and would do it again!
Everything we needed to have a wonderful beach experienceby Tom
Clean, comfortable, well equipped, everything we needed to have a wonderful beach experience. ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ This unit has everything you will need for a visit to Sanibel. Very clean and the management had maintenance fix a slow drain the same day we called. Would stay here again – in unit washer/dryer is a real bonus.
Felt right at home at Miles Awayby David
Felt right at home at Miles Away – Our month at Miles Away on Sanibel Island was very pleasant and enjoyable. The home was exactly as pictured and described by Sharon and her staff at Cottages to Castles. From the very first day I felt like we were guests of a very welcoming family. Everything we would need for our stay was there. The kitchen was well appointed with all the utensils, dishes, silverware, etc we would need. The beds were comfortable and the linens were first class quality. Thank you for the attention to detail that you obviously put into your property management, we look forward to working with you in the future. And a special thank you to the Miles Away Owners for allowing us to be their very first rental clients, we tried to treat your home with the same respect we show our own homes.
Beautiful Condo – We’ll Be Back!by April Tennant
Beautiful condo ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ We had a great vacation. Condo is clean and spacious. The dock was great for fishing or dolphin watching. We will definitely be back.
Brilliant 5 starby Mike& Ellie
Great condo,very good accommodation great lanai, everything that you possibly need, great views of gulf sunrise & sunset. Cottages to Castles is very good, hope to revisit. Thanks for sharing.
What a grand time we have hadby Sara and Carolyn from Charlottesville, VA
Our 3rd time to Sanibel, but our 1st to Sandpiper, and for 2 weeks! What a grand time we have had, we hate to leave. The accommodations and grounds here are lovely. So many shells we found and are bringing them back to Virginia. As usual, we ate and biked our way along the island, Ding Darling was great. We look forward to returning next year!
Love This Placeby Paul Engels
We absolutely love this place and want to come back. It is beautifully decorated. The pool is right in front of the building. The ocean is a short boardwalk over the dune. The beach is absolutely perfect. What more can I say. It is perfect.
Beautiful Condoby Kristin Channels
Love everything about this condo, beautiful view, beautifuly decorated. No detail forgotten.
Vacation Retreatby Brian Clark
We stayed in unit 202 and it was fantastic! We had a great view and it was close to the beach and the pool. This was the most fully stocked vacation unit I have ever stayed at!!! Beach chairs, towels, umbrella, sand toys, and the most stocked kitchen ever!! I will definitely book this unit again.
Great!by Shawn Cassity
Just say ‘Moo!’ The Cassity Bike Squad! Summer Storm National Selfie Day AND the 1st Day of Summer! Baby Alligator at Sandpiper Beach We enjoyed the condo was very clean, decorated very nice, kitchen was fully equipped with everything that was needed. Sleeps 6 comfortably – the twins had the sofa bed, 15 year old and I took the twin beds and my mother and step dad took the king. It was nice to have a washer and dryer, that way you don’t half to take everything in your summer closet… The screened in balcony was great for sitting at the table in the morning. Gulf was nice, first time for the kids to get their feet in the sand and to see the ocean. Walking on the walk way to the beach we noticed the sign saying Don’t Feed The Alligators -$500 Fine. All through the week the kids kept looking for an alligator and thought the sign was fake… The ocean wasn’t clear – kind of murky, hard to look for sand dollars or shells with goggles, but still fun. Pool was very nice and clean. Rented bicycles from Billy’s rentals – great way to get around on the island going from shops to restaurants. Very clean, quiet, comfortable place for a family to visit. Would stay there again. …On the way out Saturday morning at 5:15am to drop the keys off and head to the airport we finally got to see a baby alligator at the end of the driveway! THAT made the kids end of the sad time smiles return…. Thanks again…..
Excellent Spot!by Kristine
Excellent spot! We enjoyed our stay very much! We did not realize that we were staying in an apartment building that had a total of 6 apartments until we got there. But it really didn’t matter because it was so nice. The apartment is decorated very nicely. Our king size bed was very comfortable. Our 18 year old son slept on the sofa bed. He did say that it was uncomfortable. Our 17 year old daughter commented that her twin bed was not very comfortable. We really enjoyed the gulf, the beach and the swimming pool. It was great to have the washer and dryer to keep our beach towels and bath towels clean. My husband really enjoyed sitting out on the screened in balcony and reading in the morning. The local grocery store (Jerry’s) had everything that we needed. We enjoyed all of the seashells very much. All of the wildlife was amazing. We had a great time discovering the sand dollars and crabs and other animals. Overall, it was a great, clean, comfortable place to stay. We would stay there again. It was a perfect, quiet place for our family to spend time together and enjoy the Florida sunshine and the beach.
Exactly As Advertisedby Kate
Tarpon Beach 203 – Exactly as advertised ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Very well furnished and comfortable. We would book again.
Perfection in Sanibel!by Shannon
★ ★ ★ ★ ★ This was our first time in Sanibel and we loved every second. This condo was perfect for our family of 8. The condo was clean and comfortable. It was steps away from the beach and had all of the amenities needed to make it our home away from home for the week. The pool was great as were the grounds-they were kept perfectly. We found the beds comfortable after long days of exploring Sanibel. There were plenty of bike racks for all of our bikes and the covered parking came in handy on numerous occasions. The elevator did break for the second part of the trip which wasn’t a big deal to us but was a little cumbersome for my parents. This unit had a locker with beach chairs and umbrellas and several beach toys my kids enjoyed using. We will definitely be back!
Looking for the pefect spot on Sanibel Island?by Andrew
Fantastic…. Relaxing….. Beautiful Fantastic…. Relaxing….. Beautiful.
Atrium 203 -Fabulous in Every Wayby Roche Family
What a wonderful home to spend our time in Sanibel. We rode bikes (thanks for that) saw Ding Darling, ate great food, cooked in, shelled and enjoyed the pool. Just a peaceful and relaxing time. The cabana was a perfect spot to pop in and get a cool beverage, and rinse off in the private shower after being at the beach. We had absolutely everything we needed, and the views were incredible. We loved the beautiful furnishings, and being able to sit on the lanai and watch the sunrise and sunset with a good book is underrated. Thanks so much for sharing your place, and we look forward to returning next year.
Very Nicely Outfitted Condo on the Beachby Jane
Really appreciated how well equipped this unit was. The kitchen had plenty of utensils, cookware, everything we needed for a few dinners in. The bathrooms were very nicely updated fresh and clean. Furnishings were very nice as well. The storage unit in the garage had some beach chairs and an umbrella which, in July, was very much needed. It’s a bit of a walk from the unit to the beach, along a well maintained boardwalk. We were a bit envious of those with wagons for all their gear. A very nice spot.
Perfect for Sanibelby Robinson
We enjoyed your fine home so much. Thank you for providing such a pleasant and welcoming place. Perfect for families! Hopefully we can return in the near future.
Annual Visitby Ralph and Mary
Our annual pilgrimage to Sanibel Island has been an enjoyable experience, as we have once again shared your wonderful home. All the best to your family and may God bless you nicely.
Wonderful Memoriesby Hyson
Thanks so much for making our vacation wonderful. The condo has served us well, comfy and good location. We’ve been pleased with the crew at Cottages To Castles! Cheers!
Spring Break 2016by Manton, Michigan
Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful place with us! We found everything that we needed and all the extras. We enjoyed Sanibel more than we expected and we cannot wait to come back! Thank you and God Bless!
A charming house, close to beach and easy access to Periwinkle Wayby Laurin Garland and Marjie Ward
We had a lovely time in this cozy little house. The beach is two minutes away and its on a bike path and close to Periwinkle Way where there are restaurants, supermarkets and stores. It’s also a short distance from the Causeway. It would have been nice to have had a hair dryer, but not a necessity. Also a larger non-stick frying pan would have come in handy. However, all in all, a charming little house with lots of artistic touches in the form of posters and folk art. We would recommend Windsong to anyone looking for an affordable rental close to the beach and bike path.
Perfect Family Timeby Lynn M
Family with 6 daughters- Nice accommodations, enjoyed the beach, shelling and our precious time together.
Loveliest Property We Have Found in 30 Yrs!by Diana
We are long time renters on Sanibel (30 years) and this is by far the loveliest and most well appointed property we’ve found. This was a great way to kick off my husband’s retirement. Sharon and Kelly were very helpful. We are already looking forward to next year.
A Comfortable Stayby Charlotte
Many thanks to you for sharing the lovely condo with my family and I. I have enjoyed it so much this year and Sharon is the best at representing a comfortable stay. I am looking forward to another stay in 2022.
Many Memories and Hoping to Return!by Lois
Thank you again for sharing your home on Sanibel Island, Florida. I felt fortunate to be able to come to Florida – because of the Pandemic. All precautions were taken to make this an enjoyable time. Now, it is time to return home and will be bringing many memories with me. Hoping to return in 2022.
Thank youby Dee and John
We have enjoyed our stay here at the Atrium #203 very much. The condo is comfortable and well positioned on the beach. We are recent renters, having previously owned on West Gulf for 32 years. We do appreciate that you replaced the dishwasher during our stay . Sharon at Cottages to Castles represents you very well and is service oriented. We’ll return for the season in December- again at the Atrium. Thank you for renting to us!
The condo is fantasticby Karyn
We are lucky that you are willing to share this wonderful home on this beautiful island! The condo is fantastic! Thank you for the lovely 2 weeks we stayed here! We will definitely return to this place the next time!
Time stops while we are hereby Judi and Jim
We are refreshed and ready for the real world after our vacation in your lovely home. Time stops while we enjoy your hospitality here. Now off go the flip flops as we have one last Sanibel sunset at Doc Ford’s to say good-bye!
Thank you! We appreciate!by Lois
These 5 weeks have been wonderful, especially since we were able to come to Sanibel Island and stay in your home. Some of my family were able to join me as well. The location is such that we can enjoy the gulf, the beach and the beautiful sunset and we felt so comfortable. Now, it is time for us to head home but if all works out will be back next year. Stay Well!
Nice Placeby Michael
Very nice and very comfortable
Lovely Summer Vacationby The Griffin Family
Thank you for a lovely 2nd 2 week summer vacation in your Atrium home. We look forward to returning next year.
Great Location and Shellsby Chad
Great shelling beach!
Everything We Neededby Cindy
We found everything we needed at Island Beach Club the last week in October. The mattress on the king bed is super comfy, plenty of closet space, well-appointed kitchen and utility room. The view of the Gulf is only partially visible from the screened patio, but the breeze was nice and the natural surroundings made it very relaxing.
Wonderful Memories Madeby Julie
The beautiful condo and this island getaway was exactly what my family and I needed! While here this week we saw starfish, sand dollars, stingrays, sea urchins, turtles, alligators and more. We also enjoyed searching for shells and playing shuffleboard. So many wonderful memories made that we will treasure forever!
Just What We Needed to Rechargeby Julie
Our family enjoyed our stay at your beautiful condo. Sanibel is just what we needed to recharge.
Another Great Yearby Julie
Another great year! We’ll be back!
Screened in Deck is FABULOUSby Rick and Family
We had a wonderful stay here! We enjoyed the condo, the screened in deck is FABULOUS, & the view is amazing. Sanibel is such a fun, quaint town and we had so much fun on our vacation. Thank you!
Love, Love This Home!by Chuck & Vicki
Love, love this home. Thanks for sharing with us. My husband and I spent our 49th wedding anniversary in beautiful Sanibel Island. The condo is so comfortable, so relaxing and the decor is beautiful. Everything we needed and could have wanted was here – great job! We’ll be back!
Quality Items for Cookingby Bob & Lori
Love this condo! This is our second stay here and can’t wait to come back! Sanibel is great – we saw dolphins, manatees, alligators and more! We really appreciate having quality items for cooking – we enjoy getting fresh seafood and cooking our own meals.
So Impressed With Your Condo!by Cathy and Andrew
We were so impressed with your condo! When I booked it, the condo was not finished, and I was a little worried until I opened the door on the 15th . Thank you for decorating your condo with such good taste! We had a great time!
2nd Time Enjoying Your Condoby Sharon
This is our 2nd time enjoying your condo – thank you for keeping it so nice! This was supposed to be a whole family vacation with 12 of us renting 3 condos here at Loggerhead, but Covid dictated otherwise. My husband and I and our 2 children (23 & 27) were the holdouts…so glad we did not cancel. Had a wonderful 2 weeks here with Tropical Storm Cristobal only trying to dampen our spirits – but it didn’t work! Sanibel does that to you! We’ll see you next year!
We Love Your Condoby Julie and Rick
We love your condo! We missed the traditional 4th of July parade & fireworks, but your beautiful place made up for it.
Beautiful Placeby Robin
This condo is finished beautifully with a beach theme. Absolutely clean and brand new. State of the art appliances. Location in complex gives great beach views. Just perfect. Great location on island. Complex pool is great. Beach is fabulous. Had a wonderful two-week vacation. Will definitely be back.
Happy Memoriesby Sue and Jerry
We have enjoyed our month on Sanibel Island and in your lovely home. Best wishes to you and your family. We hope that London Calling will be available again to rent. We have many happy memories of our time here!
Once Again- 3rd timeby MaryAnn
Once again….#3 we thank you. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your lovely home and wonderful island. God Bless your family!
Once Againby MaryAnn
Once again, we thank you and say how we enjoyed our stay in your beautiful home. It’s been a hot month with a lot of cloudy days and rain- but thankfully always at night! I love the note cards, Eric and Marta! How very thoughtful of you, I also enjoyed talking to you. Would love to meet you one day if ever we should be arriving in time before you leave. So we say good bye, until next October- Lord willing.
Paradiseby Strand, Norway
Thanks for letting us spend time here in paradise. This is what Sanibel really is. The house was amazing, loved every inch of it. After one month here we do not enjoy the thought of going home. Our son Jonah learned how to swim this year, thanks to this amazing pool & pool area. The elder son (which enjoyed the ‘crib’ downstairs) learned how to play the guitar. So this holiday brought a lot of memories. We also had a ball on 4th of July, then we switched the flag on the balcony, went to the parade and celebrated with music, good food and nice people. Would love to come back!
Incredible Monthby June and Dave
We had an incredible month in Sanibel. We biked, walked the beach and neighborhood, lounged in the pool and upper deck and saw many wonderful sunsets! Your home is lovely and spacious and clearly accommodating to us and our family. the master suite was the best, giving us a place to escape. Thank you for allowing us to stay in this amazing piece of paradise.
Fantastic Timeby Linda and Coal
We had fantastic time again on Sanibel and your lovely home was a big part of our enjoyment. My husband was in love with the garage and I loved the kitchen and pool! We spent our time walking the beach and riding our bikes. We even rode into Fort Myers this year, traffic and bridge was a challenge, but we had a ball doing it. Hopefully we will be back in Sanibel next year and if your lovely home is available we will be back here. Thanks again!
Beautiful Placeby MaryAnn
Thank you so much for trusting us to rent your new home! You have a beautiful place, and we have throughly enjoyed our stay. We have been enjoying Sanibel for 20 years and it never gets old. You have a great management agency- they really went out of their way to accommodate us, we’ve appreciated the extras they furnish (dishwashing detergent, laundry detergent, trash can liners, etc.) and you have so amply furnished the kitchen with everything we needed, as well as very nice towels- even beach towels! Thank you, Eric, for your phone calls to check on our needs and making us feel welcome.
The beauty of the place is unmatchedby The Morrisons
Thank you so much for the joy of this experience! 2017 has been a long year for us, and this family vacation has been just what we needed to relax, enjoy nature, exercise, play games and enjoy each other. The beauty of the place is unmatched.
We will miss that amazing viewby The Khorchi's
We all had an amazing month in your wonderful house, everything you need and you desire is right there, organized and in perfect place to be used or to be found. The nature is inside the house and you can really relax, just waiting that something happens and surprises you! We loved everything and we all will miss that amazing view. Your house is the most beautiful in the neighborhood and fit perfectly our taste – we are Italian!
We’ve had a wonderful timeby Barbara and Steve
So difficult to find words for how grateful we are to have vacationed in your glorious home. We have had a wonderful time at Sanibel and Captiva. We are sad to leave this paradise. God bless you and your entire family, as you all have hearts of gold!
This home and setting is truly a paradiseby Sue
Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful vacation home. This home and setting is truly a paradise. Every day there was something new to see, admire and appreciate. We enjoyed biking, kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing, shelling and over eating! Most of all, we enjoyed sitting in your back yard, relaxing as we watched for dolphins and birds. We couldn’t stop taking pictures! Seeing such amazing sunsets right from your living room – unbelievable! Our last day here was a rainy day, and it was still fun. I won playing Pictionary – you have thought of everything. The binder with advertisements and phone numbers was most helpful. We can’t thank you enough. This vacation was one of a kind. We will never forget your kindness. We were surrounded by beauty inside and out, just like your family. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
You’ve anticipated every possible needby Susan & Hooks
We have had a lovely time in your Point of View house on San Carlos Bay. You have anticipated every possible need within and organized and beautifully decorated house. We have treated it with all the respect that it deserves. Tonight we will enjoy one last gorgeous sunset and will be looking forward to more next March.

Hooked on Sanibelby Suzy and Earl
This is not our first trip to Sanibel, but it is the first time we have used Sandpiper. Such a calm, restful place that we have booked for next year. We think we have been hooked on our yearly trips to this wonder island of Sanibel. See you all next year! Suzy and Earl, U.K.
We love it!by George and Sara Robinson
We are repeaters for this condo, we love it! Have been coming to Sanibel for years. Had to skip a couple, but never mind, we’re back. And plan to repeat! Cottages to Castles always treats us well, better than family! Sharon is terrific! Shelling is better here. Go to the left always. Our favorite places to eat: Cips, Doc Fords, Blue Giraffe. We always get our stuff at Baileys. Check out Gene’s Books. Go to Ding Darling and The Bailey Tract. We’ll be back- always!!
Thank you for a wonderful vacation!by Laurie Fox
This was our first vacation on Sanibel Island. We enjoyed shelling on the beach, kayaking in Tarpon Bay, and a sunset cruise on Captiva! Amazing fishing right off the pier down at the Lighthouse Beach! Yesterday we saw two large manatees! We also saw alligators, dolphins and many different species of birds. We rented bikes and toured all over the island- so much fun! Thank you for a wonderful vacation!
This is a special placeby Linda Smith
We found Sanibel Island and Sandpiper 202 fantastic for our first visit. The location is ideal, quiet, relaxing, and close to everything! We did a lot of shelling, sitting and reading, walking and enjoying many sunrises at the beach. We also biked, took a shelling cruise, ate at many great restaurants, visited with some area friends and really enjoyed Sanibel Community Church. We took this trip to honor our mom, who loved the beach and died in 5/15. She would have loved Sanibel, as we did!! Thanks for a well supplied and lovely condo. Blessings to you! We will be back, this is a special place!
Lovely relaxing stayby Karen and Carlos Jimenez
Lovely relaxing stay at Sanibel. We are in wonder at the quiet here and at how we all were drawn to pick up shells again and again! Beautiful place, very clean and comfortable space. The pool was spotless, the warmest and best we’ve ever been in! Thank you

Sanibel Great Timesby Family from Michigan
We had a great time! We went to the Rotary Art Show, enjoyed dinner at Doc Ford’s. Trader’s, Lazy Flamingo, Mucky Duck, Lighthouse Café and Bennett’s for breakfast. We enjoyed back bay fishing with Clarence Reed @ Sea Reed Charters- highly recommend. Our boys took their fresh catch over to Lazy Flamingo where they friend them up-YUM. As for the rest- what happens in Sanibel stays in Sanibel. Many thanks for sharing your home.

Great Labor Day Weekendby Family from Florida
Great Labor Day weekend. We stay in Sanibel 2 times per Summer- so this is our last trip here until Summer 2016. We really enjoyed your condo.

We enjoyed watching Anger Management. We left 2 Seabeans on the top shelf.

Best Vacationby Cape Elizabeth, Maine
We have only been here 2 days so far and already feels like its been the best vacation our family has ever had. Love the condo and heated pool, morning and evening strolls along the beach. We already have a whole shell collection and can’t wait to get more these coming days. Time has come for us-after a full week sun and fun. It truly was a great week for all of us. The kids enjoyed the pool and ocean waves as well as the bike rides to Captiva. We saw so many great things along the way, but I think dessert at the Bubble Room was BEST! Thank you so very much for having us stay at your hoe, we had a blast. We’ll be back as soon as we can.
