Best little cottage on the island

  • 5 of 5

We love the Driftwood Inn! There are very few rentals on Sanibel/Captiva that offer the privacy, convenience, and great rates for pet owners and we appreciate the great place and the great service of owner! She's the greatest! We couldn't stand to be without our little doggies on vacation and Driftwood Inn makes it possible. We are regulars several times a year including spring, summer, fall and Christmas because we love to visit the Bubbleroom for a holiday get-away and the beautiful beaches. The cottages are a short walk to the beach, just perfect for our needs. Always clean and great amenities included!

Pleasant, clean and affordable

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed here in May, it was our first time visiting Florida and we were so happy with the Driftwood and in awe of Sanibel Island, we had an amazing visit. Booking was very easy, Bridget got back to all of our messages quickly. The cottage was very clean and comfortable, air conditioning worked well. The kitchen was well stocked with appliances, plates and utensils, I brought my own blender to make frozen daiquiris!! The beach is not far, 2 blocks to walk and they provided a wagon, umbrella and beach chairs and a great place to watch the sunrise, we drove to check out a few other beaches where parking was $4 per hour. We will definitely book again, hopefully the price will remain affordable.

Our stay at Sanibel Island

  • 5 of 5

We love this place.. clean, and wonderfully decorated. Met all our dreams!! close to the beach, lots of room. every imaginable item you can think of that you need to keep house! We'll be back!! Husband, myself and our two grandchildren, ages 11 and 8 stayed for three days. Bridget was excellent in giving it to us early, and letting us check out a little late, to get one more day at the beach. Exccellent TV and WIFI reception, when we had time to use it, usually in the evening, after a long day sightseeing. Lots of nice shops and restaurants close by if you arent it the mood to cook. We liked Jacks, a nice restaurant, and great store to pick up anything you forgot to bring! 100% pleased!

My daughter and i had the pleasure of staying at this inn for four days. It was very nice, I will definitely stay again.

It is two short blocks from the beach. It is also a great location for other parts of town. We rented bikes from Billy's and were able to ride to most places. The bike paths keep you safe from traffic.

Jane is very helpful and accomodating. The units are lovely. Property is clean and well maintained.

I would recommend this inn to anyone who is in the area.

Jane is lovely & so is her inn

  • 5 of 5

I have not actually stayed here but I've seen it from the exterior and it looks lovely. I've read the reviews and know that they are all correct -- Jane is always willing to help and is an excellent inn keeper. She has quick responses to people and tries to accomodate all needs.

I needed an extra cottage for one of my own guests and called Jane. She was wonderful -- ready to jump in and help me immediately. I really believe she's a terrific people-person and that's what it takes to make someone's holiday just right.

I'm sure whoever stays at Driftwood Inn will be happy with their choice.
