Sanibel is awesome. Gulf Breezes is the way to go if you have a big group and need multiple cottages for everyone. The one bedrooms are perfect sized for a couple and the Beach house is great for the central meeting spot. Can t say enough about the beach, absolutely one of the best that we have been to anywhere....

The cottages were immaculate and had everything we needed to prepare our own meals, including a gas grill. The staff was wonderful!! They bent over backwards for us. Right before we left we booked two more trips...

I have been vising Sanibel for over thirty years and wish I had come across Gulf Breeze Cottages sooner.

Coming from SW Florida, my friends and I have some expectations for what should be standard amenities at a Sanibel vacation rental. 3 items that were lacking at our Gulf Breeze cottage were a working air conditioner, a working refrigerator, and limited sugar ants. Upon arrival, we noticed that the air conditioner was not working. The cottage maintenance man arrived...

We decided on a last minute road trip to Sanibel Island and took the recommendation of the local Chamber of Commerce. They are very Knowledgeable and helpful. They assist with a list of the daily vacancy rate and even provided a phone to book a reservation. Called two places and hit the jackpot with Gulf Breeze Cottages. Very charming and...
