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!

Quiet, simple, lovely
Close to nature and a quiet beach away from the public accesses! This property is just as represented. Service by Kim (property manager) and cleaners is great. So comfy, great light, and aesthetically pleasing! Already booked another 10 days next year.
Thank you so much for the awesome review, we loved having you and are thrilled to see you again next year!
Breakaway Vacation Properties
We had a great time at the cottages. We stayed in the Ibis cottage. It was very spacious for two people and the bed was nice and comfortable. The area is nice and quiet, ensuring for a relaxing trip. The beach was a short walk from the cottages. It was nice to have the option of riding bikes, too. It was about a 25 minute bike ride down to restaurants. So, if you plan on eating out for dinners a lot, I’d recommend renting a car because it gets really dark once the sun goes down. If you don’t rent a car, then I would definitely order groceries to be delivered to your cottage through the local grocery store. Overall nice time.
Thank you so much for your great review! We loved having you at the cottages and look forward to having you back again soon!!
Fantastic weekend getaway
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!
Thank you for taking the time to write such a thoughtful review! We are so happy your enjoyed your stay and look forward to having you back again soon!
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!
Thank you so much for the thoughtful and detailed review! We loved having you and hope to have you back very soon. The newly updated cottages and gorgeous beach are everything you mentioned!!
