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!

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

Tropical Escape at Dugger #2

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I escaped the New England frozen winter for a week in Sanibel. We have been vacationing in Sanibel for 13 years. This cozy stand alone cottage had much to offer. Located more center of the island which we enjoy. It was very clean. Very nicely decorated. Comfortable furniture and bed. The disco ball in the bathroom was a nice touch. Kitchen had everything we needed. We loved the decorated tea/coffee cups. The owners are thoughtful enough to supply games, puzzles, movies and a few books. Beach access is across the street, and the cottage came with a great cart to carry the umbrella, chairs, shell combing tools that were supplied. Great thoughtfulness went into setting up this cottage for travelers wanting to enjoy Sanibel. To be noted, the washer and dryer are coin operated in a near by out building. We hope to return again to Duggers Tropical Village in the future.

Well equipped, great location, great value

  • 4 of 5

We have enjoyed our stay at Duggars #2! The rental agent, Kingfisher, provided us with great information on what to bring and starter supplies. Thanks! Plenty of towels, linen, beach supplies, grill, etc.

Our one bedroom cottage was recently set up as a rental and it is very well equipped. The kitchen is small but great, full of cooking supplies and plenty of dishes, etc. my husband missed having a toaster or toaster oven but we managed by using the broiler for our breakfast toast.

Bed is very comfortable and lots of storage in the bedroom. Living area also very comfortable. The place was quite clean - kitchen was spotless - but the white carpeting had stains (we may have added a few with drops of spilled coffee) and the painted-over tiles in the bath never looked good. This cottage could be improved by replacing the white carpet and the old bath tiles with new tiles. But then the rental price might take a jump as well.

Location on West Gulf Drive is in the quieter area of Sanibel, which is a plus for us, but still just a short walk to the beach and an easy bike ride to the Ding Darling preserve and other sights.

Overall, we'd highly recommend this cottage for a lovely Sanibel vacation.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for the great review! We always appreciate hearing from our guests and we are especially happy that you enjoyed your stay! We will get a toaster and also let the owner know of the recommendation for carpet. Should your future plans include a visit to the Sanibel area, we do hope you will consider staying with us again! Thank you & kind regards, Kingfisher Vacations An Update ...The owners have installed tile throughout the living area. The photos show the updates. Thank you & kind regards, Kingfisher Vacations
