Fantastic Stay at Dinkins Cottage
We rented Dinkins Cottage for 2 weeks for our 25th wedding anniversary. We had a thoroughly fantastic time in this peaceful and very well equipped house. It was exactly as listed crammed full of useful items and we made use of the cycles and pool a lot which was very clean and a decent size. We went to the Ding Darling reserve a few times and liked Captiva and Bowman’s beaches.
Recommend Matzaunas restaurant and the Bubble Room
We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 month stay in this modern, clean, spacious home situated on a huge, beautifully landscaped lot. The owners were always immediately responsive to our questions and minor issues. We had met the owners the year before, and because they had a charcoal grill while we preferred gas, they graciously arranged to split the cost of a gas grill, ordered and delivered it, and even picked up the propane tank from the local market.
The bedrooms are spacious, each with large bathrooms, walk-in showers, and large closets. Ceiling fans and open doors kept the home pleasantly comfortable- as did the occasional use of air conditioning which was quiet and efficient.
We especially loved the screen enclosed balcony/pool which brought the outdoors in with the ability to open the sliding doors and still enjoy the sounds of nature. Pool was delightfully heated at 86 degrees, allowing us to swim daily, even during the occasionally chilly days in January. The surrounding neighborhood is beautiful with plenty of areas to walk or bicycle; we had a favorite 6- mile walking loop each morning.
Although we had bought a beach pass to use at Bowman’s and Turner beaches, we rarely went, as we so enjoyed the sanctuary of this home- but of course beach walking and shell collecting are a must. Despite it being crowded in town with tourists, this home truly provided a respite from the crowds and noise, as it is close to the Captiva junction. Yet, it was easy to get into the main part of town for shopping. The Sunday farmer’s market was another favorite- one of the largest and best we have ever seen.
Favorite lunch spots were The Clam Shack ( best lobster rolls!) and The Thistle Lodge. We preferred dining in at dinner, and also loved the smart TV where we could utilize our Netflix and Amazon subscriptions, as well as the on demand feature.
Both Ding Darling Nature Preserve and the CROW clinic are very close by- and both are a must see.
While we had stayed in Sanibel several times in the past for week stays in Timeshares, this trip allowed us a chance to feel like we were part of the community, and to appreciate the uniqueness and friendliness of this special island. We highly recommend this home, and we so appreciate the owners’ generosity in sharing their home and being so helpful.
Thank you so much for your kind review. We look forward to welcoming you back to Dinkins Cottage in the future.
Wunderbares Ferienhaus in ruhiger Umgebung
Dinkins Cottage befindet sich auf einem grosszügigen Grundstück und ist von einem Garten mit Palmen umgeben. Man kann Adler und Schildkröten direkt vom Haus aus beobachten.
Das ganze Haus ist sehr gepflegt, gut ausgestattet und geräumig. Balkon und Pool sind durch ein Netz geschützt, dass die Mücken weitestgehend fernhält. Der Pool ist gross und angenehm temperiert. Es stehen Fahrräder zur Verfügung, mit denen man in 10 Minuten am Strand ist (Bowman's Beach).
Das Ehepaar Emery kümmert sich sofort, wenn etwas fehlt oder nicht funktioniert. Der Kontakt ist sehr angenehm. Wir werden sehr gern wiederkommen!
Private, quiet, family-friendly sanctuary
We stayed at the lovely Dinkins Cottage over the Christmas holidays for two weeks. It was exactly as we envisioned from the photographs and the description of the property -- clean, spacious and all the amenities for a busy family of four looking to slow down and unwind on the island. For us, the location was perfection; further away from the busier parts of Sanibel and closer to Captiva. The Cottage is located in a beautiful neighbourhood on a private and quiet large-sized lot. There is barely any car traffic and the lot is full of dense foliage that invites an abundance of bird life and the occasional appearance from the resident tortoise. The foliage also provides privacy from the neighbours as you can't see/hear the next house over.
Inside the Cottage you'll find all the appliances and furnishings in good working order and well-stocked with supplies (toilet paper, laundry soap, spices, etc.) that you don't always find when renting a short-stay home rental.
Our kids enjoyed the pool daily and we loved being a short bike ride from the back entrance to Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge and to Bowman's Beach. Bikes are provided at Dinkins, though they are adult-sized and were just a tad too big for our kids. We rented a pair of kids bikes (comes with a helmet) from Finnimore's which worked out just fine.
The one thing that we weren't prepared for -- and this is not a slight against Dinkins Cottage whatsoever -- were the no-see-ums (otherwise known as midges or sand fleas). Ensure that you have an arsenal of bug spray with deet or pick up the local No No-See-Um Natural spray. Worse than a mosquito bite and you can't see them as the name suggests. There was some leftover spray at the Cottage, though we re-stocked and left ours behind for the next guests.
Working with the cottage owners, Caroline and Desmond, was a breeze. They kept us well-informed after Hurricane Irma came through (minimal damage thankfully though you wouldn't know it) and they were always responsive, provided clear instructions, and very pleasant to deal with. We would highly recommend this property and would consider it again for a future stay on Sanibel.
Home from home
Dinkins Cottage is a comfortable and spacious home away from home; perfectly situated to enjoy all Sanibel and Captiva have to offer, while also offering peace and privacy for a relaxing vacation. We would definitely rent this property again.
The owners are easy to work with and very quick to reply to messages.
Very wonderful location.
The former years we stayed always is Ft. Myers Beach and it took a 45 min. car drive to get to the strands of Sanibel. This year we decided to rent a house located in sanibel in order to save the time. We found this nice location, located nearyl to Bowmans Beach. The house is in very good shape, good equiped with fast internet and bikes for all of us.
We highly recommend this location.
