Slice of Heaven in Sanibel!

My husband and I weren't looking for much... a quaint, quiet, semi-private, beautiful beach house, somewhere to go to forget about everything for awhile... yet still close to wonderful restaurants, recreational opportunities, and island boutiques. Of course, we wanted all these options for an affordable price! Sound impossible? Well, we found it all in POTTER'S COTTAGE. This was our 4th stay in 2 years and each time we visit, it feels like our second home. Chip and Samantha are incredible hosts, always making sure that we have all we need, going over and beyond with hospitality and generosity. The cottage was always immaculate, tastefully decorated, and ready for us to "move in". We love visiting the bird sanctuary at Jerry's, dining at the Island Cow, and our morning walks & shelling expeditions on the beach. Do as much or as little as you want - it truly is the perfect vacation. I highly recommend this property for anyone who wants a week of relaxation. This place is IT... a little slice of HEAVEN in SANIBEL.

It is the most wonderful place with a secluded, authentic, tropical, Florida theme and a cozy, comfortable atmosphere. With such a central location, you can get to everything in no time and with "no car". You can walk the beach, ride your bike and also get groceries or eat out for all three meals a day within a block from your door. We have become such good friends with the owner Chip, and his wife that it always feels like "coming home again" everytime we visit. The home is fully equiped and you don't have to think about bringing a thing. Since my husband and I are avid "shellers" we are up before the sun and out at the beach, located just accross the street at the end of our driveway. This is truly a story- book cottage in a one-of-a-kind natural location where we have made lasting memories and friendships, and that we just can't wait to get back to again and again...but don't tell anyone about it!

This place was perfect. We stayed there for 7 days on our honeymoon and were across the street from an amazing restaurant called the Mad Hatter and the best sunsets on Sanibel Island. You can travel between Sanibel and Captiva easily as you are right between the two islands. Place is clean, perfect size for two possibly a couple and children. It truly is your own private hideaway. We just got back and have already decided to book same time next year. Chip and his wife are great. They brought us a bottle of champagne to celebrate our wedding and had wonderful suggestions that were all spot on!!! Amazing dinners, great time! IT WAS PERFECT!!!! Very private. You are close to everything. Convenient breakfast spot right next to you! Great beach for swimming and shelling right across the beach!

Great location

Booking direct with the owner (Chip)is great. Chip makes everything so easy. Arrived at the cottage, or he said we did.. We saw nothing...Total tropical vegetation with a wooden doorway into it. Walking into the property, it opens up to a wonderful peaceful deck, leading into a lanai, before going into the main cottage. It's a well equipped place, very open floor plan, so everything feels comfortable. Comfortable king bed. There is a very large grassy area out front which was perfect frisbee/walking area for our 2 mini Aussies. Just across the main road (2min walk) is a great pet friendly beach, where one will encounter many pet owners! We brought our bicycles and rode 3-7 miles to breakfast most mornings, either to Captiva or Sanibel. Chip and Samantha are gracious owners, and are just a text away if any questions or concerns arise. Thanks Chip, Samantha-and especially Murphy, their elder lab, for making our 2 weeks memorable!
