I booked this cottage for 10 days to celebrate turning a significant age. I had always wanted to take a solo vacation with out my husband, kids or friends. I wanted to do what I wanted to do when I wanted to without having to consider others opinions on how to spend a day. Not to sound selfish, I have taken many vacations with others and planned them out and had fabulous memories, but this time it was about myself. The Rosella cottage was beyond perfect. The location was excellent, the cottage looked just like it was advertised and the management and staff were stellar. I had everything I wanted and felt very safe. The cottage was beautifully decorated and super clean. Another selling point was the use of bikes and beach equipment at no extra charge. I loved biking around the island and it's quite an easy ride….very few hills. There are so many restaurants close by that you could easily walk to or hike to them. I was provided with information ahead of time about how to access the beach and some of their recommendations on where to eat and shop plus what to expect at the various beaches. After I got into the cottage I noticed they had a binder full of information and suggestions and locations of various points of interest. I had the most exceptional vacation and thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Rosella Cottage. I had also rented a mustang convertible and with each cottage there was one parking spot. I truly can't say enough about this cottage and those who manage it. I can't wait to go back one day with friends or family this time.

Wonderful little place!!

We arrived at the Parrot Nest to find a wonderful little place that was just what we wanted. We stayed in the Rosella cottage, and it was very clean and we kept. The bed was soft and comfortable. There’s an outside patio with a table and chair. There are bikes there to ride and it’s really the best way to get around the island. Over all we had a great trip and we highly recommend staying there!!

It was a wonderful place to get away. The location and access to bikes and beach chairs and wagons made it even more fun! So close to the beach, just a short walk or bike ride. We enjoyed it very much and can’t wait to go back and discover more about this beautiful island!

We had such a great time staying at The Parrot Nest. They offer a shell rinse station, beach stuff, a propane grill and free bike rental. Lighthouse cafe is in walking distance (2 minute walk) from our room.

A clean and comfortable efficiency with a kitchenette. Beach chairs, beach towels, sea shell scoops, and a wagon were all available to use on a short walk to the beach. Bicycles were also available to use to explore the island. A restaurant, ice cream business, and tourist shops are all within a stones throw. We had a relaxing first time visit to the island and would definitely stay here again.

This was a great place to stay! We found bikes that we could use to pedal the island, only a short walk to the beach, all we needed was here! Loved walking to Gramma Dots for dinner, walking to the beach, and taking the Tram Tour and Ding Darling!

The location was the best, a short walk to the beach and right next door to the best breakfast I've ever had, seriously! A lot of bikes to choose from which were comfortable and easy to ride. Our room was the Rosella which had a private area out the sliding door. Overall I hope to go back next year!

We had an unbelievable time at Parrot's Nest on our Honeymoon. It was where my parents also spent their 30th wedding anniversary. We did not want it to end. The friendliness of the staff, the cleanliness of the room, all of it was just awesome!! We will be back for anniversaries and vacations for sure. Thanks so much for everything!

We selected Parrot Nest so we could explore Sanibel Island attractions yet be away from the crowds. Parrot Nest--and our Rosella cottage--met and exceeded our expectations. Location is secluded with an easy walk to the Lighthouse Cafe plus a bike ride to the Lighthouse and other parts of the East End. Parrot Nest provides bikes, shelling equipment, beach equipment and carts which supported all the activities we wanted to do. Beach access is a short 3 block walk. We didn't plan to collect shells however once we go started, we were thankful for the shell-cleaning station located on the property.The Rosella cottage was perfect for us (a couple) with a comfortable bed, small kitchen and wonderful private porch where I could watch the woodpeckers and read a book. The AC kept the cottage cool and there was plenty of hot water. A delightful retreat which we plan to enjoy again!

My sister and I were so delighted upon arriving at this quaint cottage. They had bikes to ride to the nearby beach and light house. They supplied us with beach chairs, umbrella, and even a wagon to pull everything. The private beach is right up the road with no parking so this was a huge plus! The cottage is adorable, clean, set with dishes, etc, towels plus we had a nice private patio. I can't say enough about this perfect place. The town was awesome and we also took a drive to Captiva Island for great shelling.

Excellent location, quiet and clean!

The property was very clean and the location was great. Located next to lighthouse cafe and a short walk to the beach. We utilized the bikes and a wagon to head to the beach and these came in handy. Great location, cleanliness and price! The communication was excellent for check in details and confirmations.

I loved loved loved staying at the Parrot Nest Cottage #1 Rosella! It was very relaxing and quiet. We did not really see any people and if we did see them it was the maintenance staff. I think the best part about the trip was the bikes that were there for the guests to use. The bikes changed the whole experience of the trip for my boyfriend and I. It made it so much more fun. I didn't even realize how important the bikes are to the experience but it completely changes it. The bed is super comfy and huge and I loved it! The only things that I wish they could change is the AC unit it would be better if it was facing the bed to cool you off when you sleep and the water pressure. However, one of the locals told me that, that is normal. Overall, the trip was great and exactly what my boyfriend and I needed to recharge our batteries.

A very relaxing stay

I really enjoyed our stay. Our room was bigger than I thought and the amenities on site are really cool. There's a bunch of relaxing chairs and tables, a hammock, a grill and (the best part) the grounds are full of bicycles for guests to borrow (the island is relatively flat and most places are accessible via bikes). There's a washing machine and dryer on site (if anyone from the hotel reads this, a change machine would really help). It's 1/2 block from The Lighthouse Cafe (best breakfast on the island)and Sanibel Ice Cream (great for a late night snack). Walkable to the beach.The only criticism I have is that there should be a place to exchange towels. 2 beach towels are provided, but after one use they are full of sand and stuff, and it would be great if we could exchange them daily.Otherwise, it's a great place to stay. Very mellow.

We went to Sanibel Island last weekend, it was our first time there. We stayed at the Parrot Nest Cottage's operated by BreakAway Vacation Properties. Everything was very nice. The cottage was very clean and cute. Kim was very helpful from the questions that we asked before we booked and even when we arrived she was super accommodating. We will definitely be going back there again.

Tranquility! Cottage - 5 minute bike ride from the beach.Property was exactly as the photos depicted. Extremely comfortable mattress, quality bedding. Private little retreat with your own private patio area. Decor was beautiful and relaxing. Check in was a breeze. Bikes, beach chairs, beach carts, and beach umbrellas are there for use. Cable tv. It was relaxing to sit in the various areas around the property and look and listen to the birds. We saw an osprey nesting, also fun to watch the little lizards running around. The ice cream shop was right beside the property. Their ice cream and baked goods were delicious. There were also two nice gift shops and a small restaurant. The 5 minute bike ride to Sanibel Lighthouse and Beach was on a paved, safe path and easy to navigate. Parking at the beach is very limited and pay by the hour. The beach is beautiful and the shelling is fantastic! The earlier in the day the better. We also took a morning to go to Turner Beach, a short drive to Captiva Island. Island Pizza was very good and reasonably priced. We only stayed one night on the island, but could have stayed forever!03/18/2020 at 7:21 PM
