We have just returned from our fifth (5) stay at Seahorse Cottages and it continues to be one of our favorite places to stay. It is quiet, private and in a good location and most of all affordable. These older cottage units are charming and comfortable with good central heating/cooling ( no noisy window A/C units) and well appointed kitchens...

What a gem! Close to the bay, close to the beach, super clean, quiet, full of amenities, restaurant literally around the corner, and friendly next door vacationers. We will be back and I hope very soon! The convenience of having bikes, beach chairs, umbrella and wagon right there was so helpful. The lighthouse end of the island is peaceful and...

This was our first stay on Sanibel Island, and we couldn't have picked a better place! I SO want to go antiquing with the owners! Cottages are beautifully appointed, and very comfortable, without being pretentious or overpriced. In addition, the Seahorse provides bicycles, wagons to carry beach equipment, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, beach towels, and a host of other needs....

Our stay in cottage 3 of Seahorse Cottages, was the highlight of a three week road tour of Florida. The accommodation was private, self- contained, and fully equipped. It is ideally located to enjoy the beaches and access local shops and facilities. The addition of laundry facilities, verandah and pool, is the icing on the seahorse cake. I would like...

We are happy to hear you loved our location as much as we do!

We stayed in cottage #1, which was adequate, except that the kitchen was lacking some basic things that one expects from a fully furnished and equipped rental. We were constantly washing dishes because there wasn't enough supplied for more than one meal for three people. The electric stove had four burners, one which didn't work at all, and only one...

Booked Seahorse Cottages after reading reviews and the location. Glad I did. Made a lot of points with my wife. She was so excited as soon as we walked through the door. The whole layout and location is great. Best breakfast and ice cream a block away. Will definitely stay again in the future.
