Malina ad Luisa, sisters and best friends – Georgia and Tennessee – March, 2020
My sister and I came for a girl vacation. We really enjoyed the Segway tour we took with Preston at Billy’s Bikes. He was very informative on the local history and ecology. He was entertaining and showed us areas of Sanibel that we would have never discovered alone. He took us to a bird sanctuary here on the island. It was a laid back and fun time – plus – beats walking!
The best shelling was at the beach by the Lighthouse. The shells were amazing! But one day there were two ladies sitting on the edge of the surf with sifters looking for miniature shells. They had some really beautiful shells just “way smaller”. Paying it forward we have left two small sifters for you to use.
The most relaxing beach was at Bowman’s Beach – just down the street. We took the bikes provided and had a blast. We did go to the family owned shops for gifts to look for starfish and hard to find items. The owner was great and the shells were awesome.
The best pizza was at the “Great White Grill” – amazing! The crust was thin and delicious and all fresh ingredients. Best French fries were at the Lazy Flamingo.
Don’t forget bug spray and sunblock.
I hope that you have as much fun as we did!!

Had a great time and loved the location and how responsive Breakaway is. Best Communication we’ve seen.
T & C, Massillon, Ohio - February 2020
5 star rating completed and we are already booked (in #4) for next year. Our stay was truly a pleasurable one. We really enjoyed the "humble" abode--away from the hustle and bustle of a big resort. So quiet, peaceful, and everything there we needed. We were pleased to be able to hear the waves of the Gulf from our open back door in the evenings. Can't say enough good things! Thank you!

The B Family, Keyser, West Virginia (WVU!) March, 2019
We birded, biked, beached and loved every second of our time on this wonderful island! What a treasure! Hate to return to the cold and grey March weather, but will carry all of our special memories with us - along with lots of pictures and shells to remind us of our Sanibel time!
The B Family, Maine - April, 2019
Our 6th time! We love this place. We biked to the beach daily, swam, and enjoyed the rides. We saw the gator! Sanibel is a treasure!
Jim and Sue K – Michigan – March, 2020
We came to relax and celebrate our 30th anniversary, and relax we did!! Sleep, eat, beach, repeat. Floated in the Gulf, saw manatees and dolphins!
Tom and Chiquita – Ohio – February, 2020
The time spent here was perfect. The cottage was just right for the two of us. We appreciated having everything at our finger tips – beach towels, umbrellas, beach chairs and wagon to haul everything to the beach. Also, bicycles and helmets for our bide ride through the wildlife refuge. Saw lots of birds. Shelling was outstanding!
D and D – Cincinnati, Ohio - February, 2020
We were married here on Sanibel and had a wonderful time. Loved the bikes. Thank you.
The D Family, Salise, Michigan - February, 2019
Completely loved the island - must see Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge - we saw manatees and dolphins while kayaking and enjoyed birding - but the shells were amazing - an embarrassment of Riches! Cottage was PERFECT and loved the beach! Such a great mood - lifter! Now, back to the snow! Thanks!
The T Family, Cincinnati, Ohio - April, 2019
We had a great time this week - this is a great location so close to the beach. Loved having the bikes and the reserved parking near the beach. Loved the chairs and the umbrellas. We are taking home a lot of shells!
The H Family, New Jersey - 2019
We have been staying in the Sandpiper for many years - usually for one week. Appreciated the bicycles, riding to the Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge, the lighthouse, and other places of interest. The beach and water were great and we saw the alligator one day in the pond. Always good memories!
The K Family – Orlando, FL – September, 2019
What a great setting for our honeymoon, and a perfect home base for exploring the area. Kayaking and nature trails at “Ding Darling” Wildlife Refuge and sunsets at Turner Beach are great ways to enjoy the natural beauty of the area. The Edison-Ford Winter Estates in nearby Fort Myers is a good day trip. Also try the Bubble Room for a unique dining experience……
Justin and Natalie, Miami, Florida - 2019
After six years, we came back to Sanibel - little did I know that I would be leaving engaged! We did not want this weekend to end. The Sandpiper Cottage was everything we hoped for and more. We look forward to our return. Thank you!!
