1: The Parakeet Cottage At The Parrot Nest
A slice of heaven tucked away in a quaint tropical setting, The Parakeet Cottage is the only stand-alone cottage at The Parrot Nest-giving it optimal privacy. The Old-Sanibel Inn is located on the quiet East End of Sanibel Island, within walking distance to The Sanibel Lighthouse. Since 1955, this charming Inn has been welcoming visitors as they were brought to the Island from the mainland by the ferry boat. The Parakeet Cottage will have you feeling like you’re the only one staying at the small Inn. With a Queen bed, kitchenette, and private patio, there will be plenty of together time to be had in this cutie cottage.
2: The Sandpiper Cottage
You enter the Sandpiper cottage into the bright airy queen bedroom, with white shiplap walls and seriously cute coral bedding, then pass through the threshold into the open kitchen and living area, all the while enjoying the new coastal furniture and open space. The Cottage overlooks an incredible wildlife pond where you can see tropical birds, turtles, and other wildlife. This is the perfect spot for an evening glass of wine and conversation after a long day of beach strolling and bike riding. This is a perfect cottage to experience romantic “old Sanibel” charm. The best part is the beach, just a short stroll away without having to cross any streets. Experience sunsets like never before and comb the shore for the most beautiful shells.
3: D21 At Tennis Place
You’ll relax in style at this impeccably furnished quaint condo, steps from a small private beach and biking trails. Tennis Place is the perfect choice for intimate travelers, and you can’t help but end up on Island Time with the fresh cheerful colors and thoughtful touches that adorn this 1 bedroom 1 bathroom gem. What we loved about this cottagey (is cottagey a word?? Oh well!) condo is that there is no waiting in Island traffic! Tennis Places’ favorable location as the first turn after the Causeway Islands allows you to skip the dreaded beach traffic and get right to the good stuff! We loved the new furnishings and the fully equipped kitchen, with a casual breakfast bar for morning coffee before hitting the beach, pool, or bike trails. You won’t be disappointed at Tennis Place D21 for your next couples’ getaway!
