Buttonwood Cottage #2, (we moved): Porch of Buttonwood #2

Larger, with nice porch, but further from ocean. Also had a hot tub. Full kitchen, one bedroom and living and dining rooms.

Unique Qualities: All porches seemed to be screened in, and bugs were pesky on the beach at night.

Inside Cottage #4 - Sanibel Island

Inside Cottage #4

Buttonwood Cottages: Home away from home!

Private, quiet, clean and so comfortable! The manager Lisa is so nice, and friendly. She makes this place special. Our first cottage was an efficiency type. Very large, and full of homey touches. Stencils on the walls, little ocean touches everywhere. You couldn't ask for more, and the price made it a real bargain to boot!
Price can range from $85.00 a night to $285.00 a night, depending on size of cottage, and season renting.

Unique Qualities: Hot tub, screened in porch, large kitchen, king size bed. Short walk on private lane to beach. Beach chairs, bikes, kyacks, fishing poles, sand toys, games, washer and dryer on site (free) and complimentary detergent and softener. All that was missing was a private maid to cook and tuck us in!!

Address: 1324 Buttonwood Lane, Sanibel Island, FL 33957

Comparison: least expensive

Directions: Over drawbridge, first left, Buttonwood Lane is about 12 streets up on the left.
