So cute!!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent two wonderful weeks in this cute cottage. The decor was very well done and we had everything we needed. My husband loved the huge TV and all the variety of options to watch in the evenings after seeing the most beautiful sunsets every night. The beach was across the street and we spent everyday there collecting awesome shells, watching for dolphins and just plain relaxing! This definitely will be a place we want to return to and make more great memories. We loved it❤

Great Sanibel Cottage

  • 4 of 5

We were delighted with this fine little cottage and its old Florida charm (have already rebooked for next year). The kitchen had everything we needed, and the large, flat-screen TV was an unexpected plus, although we were unable to change channels with the remote (an instruction sheet would be helpful). The white, open ceiling and exposed rafters provided an enhanced sense of space and, along with the living area and bedroom ceiling fans, helped keep us comfortably cool throughout our stay (we never used the air conditioner). We also appreciated the nice beach chairs and umbrella, as well as the easy access to both beach and bike path. A great and quiet little “village” in an equally great and quiet part of the island.

Our sole disappointment was the deeply soiled, off-white bedroom carpet, which appeared beyond cleaning and spoiled the effect of an otherwise clean and bright interior. Replacing this with tile, as in the rest of the space, would be a most welcome improvement.

Nice Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My wife, Alicia an I enjoyed staying in your cottage. It was very relaxing after we came in from the beach or just touring the island.I would recommend to anyone who wants to visit the island to contact you for their stay. The other guest who stayed in the area were friendly and helpful. We appreciate you letting us stay in your cottage for the week. We will spread the word to our friends about your place. It was well worth it.

Taste of old Florida

  • 4 of 5

This small cottage across the street from the beach was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. The wi fi worked great and it was relatively quiet when we stayed around the first week of November. We would definitely stay there again.

Great place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

I really enjoyed staying here. I gave it four stars because I was under the impression that this was going to be right on the beach versus walking a little ways, there was no laundry or dryer in the unit, and I found an old bar of soap with hair in the shower. We were also given the wrong lock code upon arrival. The customer service lady was helpful, it just took a little while to figure out that the code had actually changed. Beyond that, this place is really nice. It feels new, it's cozy, and my husband and I had a really good time celebrating our 1 year anniversary here.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. I'm sorry you had a lockbox code issue. We frequently change codes and I'm happy we were able to rectify the situation. I'm also extremely disappointed that you found the soap bar. This was a very isolated, individual incident and shouldn't be seen as a reflection on the property or our cleaners(whom on rare occasions may miss something). I'm sorry for any stress it caused.We are happy you found the place really nice. Thanks again- Kingfisher Vacations

Quaint beach cottage at a quiet location. Relaxation time!

  • 5 of 5

The setting and location of this cottage was perfect and just as shown online. This is how I picture old time 1950s Florida- pastel cottages and palm trees. Duggers Tropical village is a small property with seven cottages. It's a quiet and peaceful place unlike the large resorts and condos. The beach is an easy walk across the street. No need to drive or pay to park. I spent many hours swimming, sunning and searching for shells, so many shells! This area of the beach wasn't very crowded. Owners provided beach chairs, beach towels and umbrellas. So thankful for these and used them almost every day. It's good to relax, watch the surf go in and out. Also a good location for biking, being midway on island. A bike path in front on property made it easy to ride to either end and in between. JN Ding Darling Wildlife Preserve a few miles away. Lighthouse about 6 miles on a winding trail.

The cottage was perfect for me, traveling solo. Efficient kitchen had plenty of dishes, pans, etc. and a corkscrew too! Glad to have a "real" refrigerator. Stretched my budget by preparing meals instead of eating out every day, but plenty of restaurants within driving or biking distance. Froze water bottles for beach and biking. The couch and sitting area was comfortable. Good to start day with cup of tea and relax at night with tv. Bedroom had plenty of storage, extra blankets, even iron and board. Loved the disco ball in bathroom. It would be fun if it worked. I also enjoyed the cute, beachy decor of the cottage.

Glad I chose this cottage for my first visit to Sanibel. I was sad to leave and head back to New York. Thanks for a great vacation!
