Cottage with patio, walk to Sanibel Island Southern Beach
The Parrot Nest is one of the Old-Sanibel cottages located on the quiet East End of the island. Since 1955, our charming cottages have been welcoming visitors and until the early 1960's they were brought to our shores from the mainland by ferryboat.
Our cottages are newly renovated in a coastal decor offering you epic comfort, relaxation in a beautiful room. We are within walking distance to the historic Sanibel Lighthouse and fishing pier, beautiful shelling beaches, shopping and restaurants.
If you like, use our complimentary bikes and explore miles of paths covering the island and leading to wildlife refuges, kayaking spots, secluded beaches, and meandering past more eateries, shops, and galleries. The Cockatoo cottage is a charming room with a king bed and new daybed ( twin ).
Rooms open to patios. Bathrooms include showers.
The recreational activities listed below are available either on site or nearby; fees may apply.

5/5 Excellent

Fun trip despite it all...
Our truck died the first night on the property. The location was great because it allowed us to still enjoy the beach, local eats, and some fun by way of walking, the property-owned bicycles, and a few Ubers. The property was clean and updated. I do wish there was a mirror outside the bathroom. Our tween likes to take her time in the bathroom. Also, a few more towels would have been nice. One towel per person for five days is a bit crazy considering south FL weather in July in addition to beach time. The sweet cleaning lady gave us a few more during our stay so that helped. The property itself was great. The communication with the property manager was lacking but I would recommend the property to others.

5/5 Excellent

Great getaway!!!
This is a great location. It's a short bike ride, which they provide, or walk to the beach. Great little restaurant and ice cream shop on the corner. The cottage was very nice and clean. It has everything you need. Also, the property manager called to let me know it was ready for early check in which we really appreciated. We will definitely be back.

Nice quiet place. 7 min walk to the beach but you have a complimentary cart to carry things on the beach or you can use a complimentary bicycle. Cycling around the island was fun too.
