We would stay here again...nice cottage

  • 4 of 5

The shell cottage was a lovely place to spend our week in Sanibel. The kitchen was well supplied, the beds were comfortable. Many beautiful shell crafts complemented the interior. The location was extremely convenient to the beach and restaurants. Jerry's supermarket was a pleasant surprise, especially for my husband's desire for an entire Key Lime pie. The owners were very helpful with suggestions for things to see and do. We would stay there again.

Charming Two-Bedroom Cottage on Sanibel Island

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from a wonderful, relaxing week in Sanibel at the Shell Cottage. The Shell Cottage is one of the few stand-alone houses on Sanibel Island that has two bedrooms, can be rented by the week, and is a reasonable price. Moreover, the house offers Wifi, a rarity in Sanibel. The cottage is part of a small community that includes a swimming pool and is surrounded by well-established and beautiful trees. The owners, Diane and Dave, could not have been more helpful and responsive. It is evident they have put a lot of love and care into the house and the landscaping. The kitchen could use some updating, but otherwise the house is very comfortable and functional. The cottage is in a great location, a short walk or bike ride to the beach (the owners provide bikes), and just minutes by car from restaurants and shopping in town.

Awesome accomodations on Sanibel Island!

  • 5 of 5

My sisters and I enjoyed a fabulous weekend at Shell Cottage! It was extremely clean, beds were very comfortable and you have included all the necessary items to make our get-a-way perfect! The location is extremely convenient to the beach, shops and restaurants. The community pool was wonderful as well. The cottage is so adorable and the furnishings are beautiful! We will look forward to our next stay! We highly recommend Shell Cottage!
