vacation rental description


Picture yourself at a private beach in your own charming cottage. Seagrape Cottage is a tropical home a few 49 steps from a nearly private beach in a residential community within Olde Towne Sanibel. We're located on the East End of Sanibel Island near the Sanibel Lighthouse, the fishing pier & the Sanibel Marina. Our two bedroom, one bath cottage is adorable. The full kitchen is great for the cook who enjoys hanging out in the kitchen but still wants to be included where friends and family are relaxing. Unravel the secret of the lovely seashells of Sanibel Island as you walk down our stony lane to the practically private walkway directly onto the beach. You'll see dolphins at sunrise and at sunset at the nearby fishing pier.

Full kitchen is equipped with everything you need, Living and Dining room, counter bar and stools, tropical decor. Large enough for a couple to spend time together for a month or more. This is truly a dreamy beach cottage on a splendid little island in the tropics. What more could you desire! On the beach, everything is good....

Pleasant and relaxing ambience. You need bring nothing but yourself. We are on the bike path and a block from small shopping center. Seagrape Cottage is an alternative lifestyle to busy inns or condos.

Friendly & helpful locals are your neighbors. Our last guests went on a boat ride with one of their new friends from this residential street but people are never intrusive and you are left alone as you chose.

When you arrive you will have a special basket of goodies to enjoy -- Our gift to you: begin your holiday at Seagrape Cottage on the sunny shore of Sanibel Island.

Frommer's Rating gave Sanibel Island #! spot out of Ten Best Places to Visit in the World and Conde Naste Magazine said it is one of the top Ten Beaches

Conde Naste and US World & News says Sanibel/Captiva best of ten beaches in the USA

Review submitted: July 26, 2014   Date of arrival: July 4, 2014

This Island has everything. You can get around on bike, kayak, scooter,or fun cars. The description is accurate. You will not need anything but your bathing suit and shorts. The cottage had plenty of extra towels which we really appreciated. The owners will go above to make sure your stay is pleasant. We had a delightful vacation. We needed a vet and a doctor while on vacation and found them readily available without leaving the island. We did eat out several times but made our own meals most of the time. The kitchen was fully equipped and efficient for our needs. We gave a birthday party and hosted a dinner for six people with no problem. I would recommend this vacation cottage to anyone. I am currently trying to get a return reservation.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, people with disabilities, families with teenagers, girls getaway, pet-friendly, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

Owners response: Thanks so much, Barbara: It never fails -- we keep on getting the same awesome people year after year. Why does the cottage attract THE nicest people on the island? We try to do everything to make your stay special, unique and as perfect as can be. It's our trademark and we'll always be there for you and anyone who enjoys their holiday at Seagrape Cottage. We appreciate your help in showing other potential Sanibel vacationers the way to our paradise!

Review submitted: May 6, 2013   Date of arrival: March 15, 2013

This was our second year that we returned to Seagrape Cottage. Again it was a wonderful experience. The location is excellent, on a quiet street near the lighthouse. It is in walking distance to grab a good cup of coffee and pastry each morning. The ice cream shop and one of the very good restaurants on the island is also within walking distance. The beach is a short walk from your front door. The cottage has everything you need, just bring your swimsuit and flip flops.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: You two are great. We hope we'll see you again & again. It was a pleasure working with you. Thanks so much for your lovely comments. We are very happy that you liked our cottage enough to come back again. It means a lot to us. Best wishes ~

We'll be back

Review submitted: April 1, 2013   Date of arrival: February 1, 2013

This was the second time we've vacationed at Seagrape Cottage and we'll definitely be back. The location could not be better and we enjoy the privacy of a backyard, the quiet of a residential street and cozy cottage feel of the house itself. We have stayed in other places on Sanibel, but Seagrape just feels like home.

Owners response: It was so cool to have an author stay at our cottage. Being so close to the beach, perhaps the Gulf breeze provided you with inspiration. And maybe Seagrape Cottage was your muse... We know we will see you again and we will welcome you and your husband soon. Thank you for your lovely comments.
