Stayed for two nights just after Labor Day as a quick getaway for a friend from Zephyrhills, FLA and I. Stayed in Unit 2 with a direct ocean and beach view. Cabin was just perfect and well appointed. We arrived and witnessed a wonderful sunset. Bunnies, pelicans and dolphins comprised our private wildlife refuge. I will be back and will...

Stayed for a week beginning of August. The property is exactly as advertised, it was very very peaceful, clean and well taken care of. The area and beach cannot be beat if you want zero crowds, peace & quiet and to be totally relaxed. Every encounter with the owner or an employee was beyond pleasant and helpful. Being August in...

Called about a free standing unit, couldn't find one available for our dates of travel. I explained that our dog may bark if we leave him inside unit alone (to go out to eat once or twice while there) and I also explained that in no uncertain terms that our dog is not typically a BARKER! He'll only bark when...

Unfortunately this is not a qualified review of Mitchells Sand Castles and should not really be allowed. It detracts from the honest reviews that we are very proud of. The fact that someone is allowed to post a One Star review based on the reviewers strange perception of reality is most troubling. We have 3 basic pet rules - leash,...

My wife and I wanted to find a quiet spot on the beach that we could just kick back and relax. Mitchell's was perfect! We could take our Cavalier for walks on the beach. Plus we could collect many different shells. The accommodations were super clean and the other guest were just fun to be around. Real family atmosphere.

We stayed at Mitchell's earlier this month for our family vacation. Everything was perfect including the weather and water was calm and clear. Lots of people fishing and the resort is very family oriented. All the guests we met were really nice and friendly. We booked for next year; can't wait to return.

My husband and I decided to vacation on Sanibel Island this year, and - with this being our first trip there - I began rabidly researching rentals. Luckily, I stumbled across Mitchell's Sandcastles early in my search and after checking many reviews, I began asking my normal ton of questions. Every question was answered with a quick response and they...

We stayed at Mitchell's Sandcastles 5 years ago and knew we had to return there. Stayed in the same unit -- Sea Grape -- an efficiency just steps from the beach. Everything we needed was there -- from a good kitchen, nice bath/shower, good a/c, comfy bed, good storage space. TV reception a little off at times but who cares?...

Located away from traffic, these accommodations are midcentury pine paneled old Florida. Kitchens are complete. Great to retreat from a busy life. Beautiful beach. Very pet friendly and very quiet. Many guests there during my visit had returned for another stay

We loved our cottage Sea Star! You can see everything that is going on at the beach from your porch. Shell hunting is so much fun every morning. The two pools are nice but they felt like hot tubs. Wish they were alittle cool to be able to relax in them.

I was here years ago and it is still in the original family ownership. It is located in an area of mostly homes and not on a crowded tourist beach. Most of the accommodations are duplex cottages and are very well kept and very clean. Some are one or two bedroom and others just a living room with sofa bed....
