It was home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

Very cute and cozy cottage. Open floor plan with the kitchen. A grill was also available for use off the back of the screened in lanai. Very clean. My husband and I had a great time. We'll be back!

Exactly as pictured!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd stay at Sunset Cottage in the last year and it wont be our last. It is exactly as pictured when you walk in and very clean. I saw a review about the fridge being "partially broken" the fridge and freezer work just fine but the ice maker does not work which is ok with me being I don't want ice from an ice maker that isn't used on a daily. I looked at the pictures and I can say what you see in the pictures is going to be what you see when you walk in. We come down to fish and aren't worried with the lack of WiFi because it's actually very nice to connect with my husband and not to the internet. Having the washer and dryer onsite is wonderful so I don't have to pack as much and everything is clean when I get home. The owners are quick to respond and very nice. We will be back again and again to make lasting memories and enjoy the peace and quite of St. James City and Sunset Cottage.

First I want to say I wish 4.5 stars had been an option because that's what I would have given this place rather than 4. That being said, my wife and I will definitely be back. I'll list some of the reasons why.

1) Price: people say you get what you pay for. This is an exception to that rule. You get so much more here.

2) Pine Island: There are restaurants, shopping, hiking trails, historical sites, and many other things to see on the island. We really enjoyed exploring it.

3) Atmosphere: Super laid back, no loud parties or crazy neighbors. A perfect place to get away from the insanity of life for a bit.

4) Location: Within about an hour to an hour and a half you can be at so many other great locations. It's like having a base camp to come back to after you spend the day out having fun.

5) The owners: I can't say enough about how great and friendly they were. Any problems come up you can let them know and they will get on it. One of the bikes had a flat tire when we got there and they had it patched and back to us the next morning.

All in all it's a great place. The only reason I wouldn't give it 5 stars, and this is just myself and my wife, was the lack of internet and a dvd player. For some people this probably isn't a big deal but it would have been a lot easier to find information about the area with the internet. We don't have unlimited data on our phones so rapid fire searches eat up our data. This also meant in the evenings we couldn't stream movies or shows we like to watch. And we only discovered after renting a dvd from the redbox up the road there was no dvd player.

They have satellite tv but I work for a cable company and get free cable and I've used it once in the last 8 months. We mostly stream or watch movies which we couldn't do there. Personally, I would lose the satellite and just get internet put in.

One other note if you are considering booking here. Bring some bug repellent. Pine Island has lots of marsh areas across it and thus ample mosquitoes. We did find a few places that sold an all natural repellent specifically for the island made from essential oils, for those that are into that. It was sold by some of the local vendors.

Not impressed

  • 1 of 5

Refrigerator partially broken. The cottage was not as pictured and the reviews did not apply. We entered, looked around and then left. We were not refunded the nights we booked.

Great cottage, plenty of room, has everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

The owners are very responsive and quick with their replies! Cottage is great, surpassed our expectations! They have everything you need, 2 kayaks, which were so fun to use in the channel which is steps away, where we saw 4 manatees swimming right by us, and 2 dolphins, fishing from the docks with their included 3 fishing poles and tackle box, 2 bicycles to ride around the beautiful streets and admire the Florida palm trees, a propane grill, comfy beds, plenty of towels and linens, the list goes on and on! Pine island has a great old town feel yet has so much to do! We only stayed 4 days but wish we could have stayed 4 more! Sanibel beaches are just an hour away which also has lots to do. Great time, great owners, can’t wait to go back!
