Week In Sanibel
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.
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.
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!!!
Amazing condominium with gorgeous views of the beach!
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!!
Sandpiper was great!
Had a nice week! Sandpiper was very great.
First time staying on Sanibel
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

Very Quiet Condo on the Beach
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!

Great location, friendly staff, overall a great experience
Very easy process, great communication and follow up.
Great Week Away
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.
First Stay In Sanibel
Great location and accommodations. Quiet, clean and beautiful!
Great Beach Getaway!
Easy arrangements, great property, limited units meaning less people around during COVID. Unit had everything needed. Highly recommend!
We enjoyed our stay at Sandpiper
We liked the secluded environment. The condo was clean and well maintained.
Nice and Quiet
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.
We couldn’t have asked for a better week. Such a relaxing atmosphere and beautiful location.
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!
Spring Break During Covid
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.
Great Covid Respite
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!
Beautiful View of the Beach
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!
We LOVED Our Stay!
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!!
Just What We Wanted!
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.

Lovely condo in a beautiful and peaceful location
All Was Wonderful!
All was wonderful!
We’d choose this unit again – we love Sandpiper Beach
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!
***** Great condo! Great place to vacation!

What a grand time we have had
by 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!
by 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.

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! 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.

Very Nicely Outfitted Condo on the Beach
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.

This is a special place
by 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 stay
by 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

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!

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!!

Hooked on Sanibel
by 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.
November 30, -0001 - Website
EXCELLENT! Truly everything as described and more! Location on the beach and on the the island was perfect. Immaculate furnishings and amenities. Would absolutely recommend to all and will stay here again should we have the opportunity to return to Sanibel!
