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!

  • 5 of 5

it was the perfect size cottage for the 2 of us, very short walk to a great beach,and the walk was a lot of fun saw something new everytime. much better staying here than a condo gave the old feel of sanibel to use. it reminded me of the 1970s when i would come down with my family back than.

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.

Owner's Response: Dear Kathryn, Thank you for renting Duggers #4 cottage, and Thank You in advance for enjoying it so much that you're returning again! Our goal is to exceed your expectations, and I'm sorry that we've fallen short on the cable tv channel lineup. We are limited by a package provided by the condominium association - I will reach out to the owner to see if there is a way that we can get expanded programming outside of their group before your next visit. We can appreciate a good channel selection, especially after the sun goes down after a day of beach combing, grilling or what have you! Knowing that your vacation is an investment and that you've chosen Cottages to Castles to assist you with your planning is the best compliment we could receive. With many thanks, we look forward to sea-ing you soon! Sharon and the Cottages to Castles Team

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
