This was our sixth visit to Sanibel Island and our second stay with Periwinkle Cottages. We arrived at the Cottages on Sunday afternoon and Mark, the owner was on premesis and met with us. Once we were settled in we retrieved our private parking pass for the lot at the end of the drive and went to the beach. The...

Just back from a 3 night stay in the Heron cottage (2 bedroom/2 bath). Clean, quiet and in the perfect location if you want to be on the quiet side of the island. Only a 10 minute drive to Captiva, we found the location to be ideal. The beach at the end of the road was one of the best...

If you're looking for a low key no fuss stay on Sanibel for the right price and has great extras (a practically private beach just down the same road with free parking!!) then this is your place. I almost hate to leave a review because Periwinkle Cottages deserve to have the kind of people who will really appreciate what a...

We just returned home from a week at the Periwinkle "Heron" Cottage. It was wonderful. Mark and Kathy Lewis, the owners, are delightfully helpful and friendly without being intrusive. The comfortably furnished cottage included a nice kitchen, dining table and screened porch so that we could eat in when we wanted. We also had a barbecue. The drive to the...

We rented at Periwinkle for over a week in Nov, 2011 based on prior tripadvisor reviews and our expectations were met. Prior reviewers have done an excellent job of outlining the many pluses of the cottages. This is our additional two cents: 1. We came to Sanibel for the bicycling and to explore the nature refuges/tracts. Periwinke offers a great...

Our stay at Periwinkle cottages was fantastic. The Ibis cottage was perfect for my wife Carla and I. It was clean and comfy with everything we needed. The neighborhood beach a few minutes away was incredible. We used the bikes supplied by the owners, Mark and Kathy, to get to the beach and back. It was about a 2 minute...

We were able to stay in the Sandpiper cottage for three nights on an internet special and it was perfect. The owners, Kathy and mark, are outstanding people and were so accommodating. The Sandpiper cottage had been recently updated and had lovely furnishings. The cottage is small, but was perfect for a couple. The cottage had everything we needed and...

The cottage was as advertised and ready for us when we arrived. It is in a good location as it borders on the "Ding" Darling Wild Life Refuge. We came for quiet and birds-- we found both. Although the four "cottages" are clustered quite close together there is a real sense of privacy. The bikes available for guests were in...

Four beautifully maintained and well appointed 1959 cottages, a short walk to a gorgeous beach. A beach parking pass is included at no extra charge. We stayed in Egret which was perfect for us. Mark and Kathy are wonderful hosts, had great recommendations for food and activities and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, hated to leave. We'd return in a...

Periwinkles is a very nice place to stay. Owners, Mark & Kathy are so nice and accomadating. We have stayed there numerous times, always enjoyable. Smaller place, 4 cottages and one bungalow. We really like staying in Sandpiper. Perfect size for 2 people. Nice little deck out back, a gazebo, and a pond with plenty of wildlife. In our stays...

“Next time we would like to reserve one of the one bedroom cottages which are very roomy and nice looking on the inside. Everything else there was booked when we made reservations and were just glad to get the efficiency but for a week's stay one of the larger cottages would be better.”
