About the property

Near Beach Pet friendly 1 week minimum

Have you dreamed of your own private cottage at the beach? Let us help you make it a realty with this Sanibel Island rental.

Duggers #4 is one of 7 quaint cottages at Duggers Tropical Village that harken back to Sanibel when there was a ferry to the island and condominiums didn't exist. These cottages are directly across the street from the beach, via private deeded access, and are only 1.3 miles biking or walking distance to the heart of the island galleries, restaurants, shops, grocery and theaters.

Duggers #4 features ceramic tile throughout, central heat and air conditioning, a small kitchen with stove, oven, refrigerator and a microwave. The living room has a sectional sofa, wall-mounted flat panel tv, a dvd and cd player, a lovely glider/swivel club chair and dining table that expands to seat 4 people.

The bedroom has a King bed and a full bath with a walk-in shower.

A little laundry house is located on site with a coin-operated washer and dryer for your use.

The beach is 150 yards away via private beach access adjacent to White Caps cottages. Fabulous Sanibel shelling is right there! Island restaurants, galleries and shops are 1.3 miles away.

A minimum one week stay is required at Duggers Tropical Village.

Duggers #4 is professionally managed by Cottages to Castles of Sanibel & Captiva. Since 1997, they've been making sure that each stay is a memorable one.

Your doggie is welcome at this property with prior approval of the Owner and Cottages to Castles. Payment of a non-refundable pet fee is required. The non-refundable fee is based on the length of your stay and the number of doggies in residence and/or visiting the property. Weight limit and breed restrictions may be applicable, based on the type of property rented.

Failure to disclose a doggie in residence and/or visiting the property for non-overnight stays can result in eviction and forfeiture of all prepaid funds.

Due to online booking limitations, this property may show as unavailable for your requested dates, when it actually may indeed be available!

This was our first visit to Sanibel and we loved it. Our little cottage was perfect for my husband and I, and was beautifully decorated. We had everything we needed and the beach is just a short walk away. We will definitely rent here again!

Cozy, Clean, Comfortable, Safe

  • 5 of 5

Loved everything about this cottage except not many tv channels, if that’s important to you. Beach right across road, easy access. Bed mattress is great. Very clean. Table and chairs and small grill outside under palm tree which is so nice. Felt very very comfortable and safe there. This cottage allows pets which I loved.

I’m renting it again and highly recommend it.

Great little cottage

  • 4 of 5

Cottage was clean and as described.Beach is nearby- across the road and then short walk down private beach access. Enjoyed using the small charcoal barbque and sitting outside in the chairs provided. Rented bikes from Finnimores and had a wonderful dinner at Mad Hatters.

Owner's Response: Dear Shelley, Thank You for taking the time to share your review of Duggers Tropical Village #4 cottage. We will be sure to share your review with the Owner and housekeeper. The owner will be glad that you enjoyed the patio and outside chairs, as well as the barbecue grill. There is no better place to bike than on Sanibel. With 26.1 miles of bike paths, I hope you were able to explore a good part of the island. Mad Hatter is an absolutely terrific restaurant, and is a favorite for special occasions and a beautiful view of the Gulf of Mexico. Should you find yourself in our corner of the world again, we would very much look forward to assisting you in finding your next home away from home. With Sunny Regards, Sharon and the Cottages to Castles Team

Amazing Property

  • 5 of 5

We were blown away from the moment we first walked into the cottage.

Everything was awesome from the service to the cleanness of the Property. As described it was a very short walk to the beach. If you go you must eat at the Bubble Room it will amaze you, and be sure and save room for desert (Awesome) or do what we did and get several to go. The grocery at the end of the road had a great selection of foods from meet and cheeses to any thing else you may need and the prices were not bad at all. We met some locals and made a great friendship and will definitely go back. It was everything they said it would be and more. Would definitely recommend this property to anyone wanting a peaceful getaway.

Owner's Response: Thank You for selecting the darling Duggers #4 cottage as your home away from home! We've just added fabulous plantation shutters to the interior space, so watch for updated photos (coming soon!). We cannot wait for you to return and see the fabulous improvements! The Bubble Room is a fantastic spot - we love getting their desserts to go, and Bailey's Grocery has been serving up fabulous food and delivering groceries for over 125 years! There are so many places for you to explore, and Duggers #4 is the perfect location to stay and call your home. You can walk, bike or drive anywhere from it, and the beach is right across the street. We look forward to seeing you soon! With Warm Sanibel Wishes, Sharon and the Cottages to Castles Team
