About the property

Our vintage 1959 attached cottages have retained the Old Florida style and charm, while being comfortably furnished and tastefully updated for your enjoyment and convenience. We have four cottages, Heron - cottage 1 is a beautiful 2 bedroom 2 bath and the largest of the four cottages. Sandpiper is a one bedroom studio cottage with a private gazebo looking out onto a pond filled with wildlife that makes Sanibel Island so special. Ibis is cottage three and it boasts a one bedroom King and one bath. The ibis cottage has its own private lanai overlooking the grounds. Egret is cottage 4 and has two queens in the bedroom and one bath with a private lanai. All cottages are equipped with beach chairs, umbrellas and bikes for guests use. We have access to the most beautiful beach on Sanibel Island where it is seemingly quiet and remote, peace at its finest! The sunsets are exquisite and the shelling is world class!

Guestbook comments from the manager

LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS! We stayed here for our honeymoon. Mark and Kathy are relaxed, laid back, and have a lovely place for the right price!

We stayed in the Sandpiper. It has a single bedroom with a queen bed, a living area, kitchen, and bathroom. The kitchen had all the necessary equipment so we were able to eat in and save a lot of money on our trip.

The decor is beachy and welcoming. Mark paints and did a lot of the artwork in the cottage. I can still remember the koi picture in the bedroom. Very nice touch!

There is a private gazebo out back that overlooks the pond. There were many birds, turtles, and a small alligator in the pond, though the alligator left after a couple of days. There was a cardinal bird that came to the sliding glass door every morning and would tap on it with his beak.

There is a grill out back by the gazebo, laundry on-site, books that they have available to borrow, and a shell washing station. There are also bikes that are available to borrow so you can bike around the island.

There is private beach access at the end of the block. Sanibel is famous for its shelling and the beach at the end of the street by far had the best shells we found on the island. You get a card so you can park your car at the end, but it's so close you can just walk down there.

It's quiet, clean, and was the perfect place for us to stay. Thank you, Mark and Kathy! Next time we come to Sanibel we will be staying again!

Fantastic weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Periwinkle Cottages in the Sandpiper cottage for a long weekend. The cottage is newly decorated and was extremely comfortable. The furnishings and décor are tropical and tasteful. The laundry facilities, shell washing station and free bicycle use is an added bonus. We have traveled to Sanibel several times in the past and would not hesitate to return to this property. It was a 3-minute bicycle ride to the private beach and if you prefer to drive the cottage comes with a parking pass. The property is located on the quiet end of Sanibel close to Bowman Beach (fantastic shelling) and Captiva Island yet within 10 minutes drive of the downtown Sanibel shopping/restaurant area. Kim, the property owner, was readily available by phone for both check-in and check-out. Overall, a perfect weekend getaway!

Ibis Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I decided to escape the cold of Minnesota to unwind and beachcomb Sanibel's beautiful beaches to ring in 2018. We stayed at the lovely Ibis cottage at Periwinkle (1 of 4 cottages on the property) and were completely charmed. The cottages have been updated with minimal yet tasteful beachy decor and Kim, the proprietor was wonderful and accommodating. The cottage has a cute enclosed patio with a dining table, and even a little clothesline with pins to dry your swimsuits. Each of the four cottages comes equipped with a small grill - which we loved using after long days spent swimming and sunbathing at the virtually private beach right down the quiet street. Thick brightly colored beach towels are provided, as well as free beach cruisers with helmets, kitchen equipment for the kitchenette, and even a space heater! There is free diy laundry on premises - Periwinkle provided laundry detergent - an outdoor shower as well as a shell cleaning station with buckets and colanders to clean your beach bling :) The level of detail and thought put into what their guests would need during their stay was very much appreciated and I was impressed -- it is rare to find that level of foresight in an establishment of this size. Typically I stay at high end boutique hotels, but I wanted a change of pace and our sweet little Ibis Cottage provided the relaxing, rustic, lazy atmosphere that we needed. We are already thinking about going back!
