vacation rental description

Mix the cocktails, light the tiki torches and come and hang out...

The best place to experience serenity and the laid-back Sanibelian lifestyle is on one of the island's east-end residential streets.  On Cardium, most afternoons you'll rarely see a car go by.

Cardium Guest Cottage (Duplex) is an unpretentious cottage with a coastal blue, green and white palette.  Nap in the screened lanai, catch some rays in the hammock and join locals walking to the beach on this lovely, quiet, crushed-shell lined street.

Walk to the gulf beach at the end of the street (about two blocks) or ride bikes  to nearby shops, excellent restaurants, or Holiday Inn's tiki bar on the Gulf. The kitchen is well appointed for those who enjoy cooking and at-home dining and you'll find the islands' shops offer an extensive selection of foods and wines.

Relax in the screened room or barbeque on the private rear deck and enjoy the 100' x 60' back yard with dozens of mature tropical trees, native plantings and orchids that create private areas for entertaining or just relaxing.

traveler reviews for this sanibel island cottage rental

Cardium Cottage, Sanibel, FL

Review submitted: March 29, 2011   Date of arrival: January 1, 2011

Cardium Cottage is a very special place!! We've always loved Sanibel and hoped to find a place to rent for a month. We found Cardium Cottage online and, based on the description and photos, it sounded great. Little did we realize how wonderful the cottage is until we arrived! The decor is perfect... a perfect balance: 'island', classy, and cozy. Every possible need has been anticipated! If we could just stop bringing too much where ever we go (we drive), we'd need only a satchel of clothes and our laptop. Did we mention that there is wi-fi as well as a great entertainment system? The tropical landscaping is terrific and really makes the cottage special as well as private. In addition, there are some marvelous potted plants! The beach? An easy 2 block walk. Stores? Shops? Very close! Questions? Whenever we had one, an email to the owners took care of it. Our visit was great and we are looking forward to next year at Cardium Cottage already. We feel very lucky to have found such a special place.

Recommended for: age 55+, girls getaway, pet-friendly, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

Owners response: We love our guests and are happy to hear that everything you might need is in the cottage. When our family visits we like to travel light, make a quick stop at Jerry's grocery store on our bikes with the amazingly handy Burly cart attached and know that we have everything we might need during our stay. We are planning to visit ourselves this spring and with each trip we add something new to the cottage.

Based on first-hand experience, the cottage turned out to be a perfect spot for the elderly. We brought my 85 year old mother with us on one trip and she loved the cottage because there is only one step when entering making the use of her walker easy. The shower has a grab bar and along with a weather-proof kitchen chair placed inside, it proved to be a perfect arrangment for her. She also enjoyed the fact that there are many large windows that made it easy for her to keep up with all of us when we went in and out of the cottage. And, my favorite part is that Billy's bicycle shop provdies free beach-style wheel chairs for walks to and along the beach. What could be better for someone with limited mobility?!

Thank you to all of our past and repeating guests (and especially those that watch over the garden for us by watering the plants on occassion if it doesn't rain for a bit) and for all the wonderful things that they have written about the cottage.

We invite you to come to Cardium Cottage and live as a Sanibel local on our wonderfully non-touristy street. We have been delighted to learn that some of our guests have shared cocktails and dinners with neighbors at both Cardium Cottage and their homes, trip after trip. It's a great place to be if you want total privacy or a bit of socializing. Thank you nice neighbors.

Please come and share our little piece of paradise :)

One more thing... Our neighbor Kelly is available to dog sit should you need her services.

Wonderful charming cottage

Review submitted: October 27, 2010   Date of arrival: June 12, 2010

We loved our time in your cottage and found it adorable, well equipped and in a great location. So close to everything! You can walk right down to the beach, no need to drive! It is quiet, lovely and well taken care of. The bedrooms are roomy and have all the amenities you could want. Love sitting on the screened porch with a glass of wine at dusk and enjoying the quiet! I would recommend your cottage to anyone!

our favorite place

Review submitted: October 27, 2010   Date of arrival: November 15, 2009

Stayed on the island for the last twenty years, once or twice a year. Been renting this property for the last eight years. Always delighted at the constant updates and improvements. A great street, near beach and shopping. We no longer rent a car, cab to the island and bicycles from there. Relaxing, cozy, laid back. Much better than resort properties we used to rent.Back yard is tropical, front screened in lanai is hard to leave. A great value.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, families with young children, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway
