Love this place. Can't say enough good things about it. Cottages right on the beach. Everything you need from housewares to shelling equipment to two pools. I'm in love and looking forward to my next visit in the fall! Everyone is friendly. Love the staff . Sigh... my little piece of heaven.

Just a wonderful, old time Florida beach bungalow motel. Staff is helpful, everyone is friendly and laid back. Beach chairs, BBQ grills, frig, screened-in porch, salt water pools, just great. Will come again.

My husband and I were looking for a place to relax on the beach on Sanibel Island. We found one cottage at Mitchell's Sand Castle when many other places were already booked solid. What a wonderful find! These cottages are just steps from the beach, and have chairs to watch beautiful sunsets every night. The cottages are well stocked and...

We stayed for a long weekend in the Ocean Mist cottage, along with another couple. We were all extremely happy with the cottage, especially the fact that there is a bathroom in each of the 3 very nice-sized bedrooms! The kitchen has all modern appliances, including coffee maker, toaster, and blender! The beds were quite comfortable and the cottage itself...

3rd time staying at Mitchel's and still thinking of coming back. Property is right on the beach, offering a variety of accommodation choices, always clean, neat grounds with a pool, even borrowable bikes to trek the island. Very recomendable for a relaxing time for your family and your pet!

My husband and I just returned from a short get-away to Sanibel Island, our first time there, and we loved Mitchell's Sandcastles.

We also had a private screened in porch with a water view. The...
