    We love vacationing to Westwind!! We have lots of memories there and just Sanibel itself !! We Celebrated birthdays and anniversaries there! We even come over to the WW from Ft Myers just to enjoy lunch and have a drink at the bar or to take a stroll on the beach!! Best place ever! We plan to be back as soon as we are allowed to get back on the Island!!

    Some of my most precious memories are from the family vacations we would take to the Beachview cottages each April. From running down to my family to relaxing on the wooden structure overlooking the gulf to shelling with mom and chasing lizards in the evenings up the palm trees. The sand path to the ocean lined with colorful cottages with palm trees towering overtop will always have a special place in my heart.

    Our family had the best time at WWI this past summer. From the pool to shuffleboard to the beach, so many memories were made on that gorgeous shell strewn beach. We cannot wait to visit again when you’re ready for us:). Maybe consider adding a suite for larger families as well?#sanibelstrong

    My family and I have been visiting the island for 30 years and we have been coming to Tween every year for the past 15 years. There are so many memories to look back on! My favorite memory of ‘Tween is getting married there last year on your beautiful beach. It was the perfect day, and we even got some lava flows at the pool bar in between the ceremony and reception :)

    (We’re excited to bring our daughter there for the 1st time next May!)

    As a very young child, I started going to the Castaway Cottages. I have lots and lots of memories. I’ll tell you about 2 memories that stick out. First one is that I learned how to swim in the ocean with my grandpa. We were far our into the ocean, my grandma was at the shore yelling at my grandpa to bring me back to shore. Second one is that I’m on a post card. My mom, dad and I were walking down the beach and was approached by a gentleman and his little girl. The man asked my parents if he could take a picture of me and his little girl. And last memory I have is the sad one is, we put my grandma’s ashes in the ocean. I have meant to come back, but there’s always something that have prevented me from coming back. I love Sanibel Island and wish I could afford to live there.

    We love castaways, the location, the proximity of the store and the restaurants, Castaways’ and Turner beach. Honestly the best location because you don’t have to leave for anything unless you want to. Number 7 is the BEST!! So many trips and can’t wait to see what you guys do in the future.

    Sanibel and Castaway Cottages has been a family favorite for years. Sanibel is also the first time I was ever on the beach, and I’ve fallen in love with the ocean ever since! My mom and I decided to recreate the same picture in the same place 20 years later. Praying for everyone on Sanibel and hoping to return soon.
