Gulf Breeze Cottages receives prestigious “White Glove Award”

The Lee County, FL Tourist Development Council announced Friday that Gulf Beach Cottages on Sanibel Island has received the Superior Small Lodging Association Citation as a White Glove hotel/inn. The White Glove award is given after unannounced visits by inspection teams who grade member lodges on cleanliness. In order to receive the award, Gulf Beach Cottages was required to pass every item on a long check-list of housekeeping and cleanliness standards.
According to Gulf Breeze spokesperson, Katrina Salokar “This is not a casual matter for us. We work very hard to be a place where guests not only enjoy the best of Sanibel Island beaches and other island experiences, but also they encounter spotless conditions in their rooms and cottages. This is recognition we are very proud to receive.”
Gulf Breeze Cottages invites you to book your reservations for Fall on Sanibel and the upcoming Season – space is going fast!

Dodging the bullet

That’s the conventional way to comment when impending disaster threatens, but in the case of Isaac, it was more like dodging the shotgun pattern. As the storm turned into the Gulf and skittered past Sanibel, it was so wide that the island got a lot of rain but fairly modest winds – THANK GOODNESS!!

We hunkered down, in the way Gulf Coasters are all too familiar with, and watched through shuttered windows. It wasn’t until it was over that we realized how non-threatening Isaac actually was for us. Then our thoughts went to folks in New Orleans, Mississippi, Alabama and the Panhandle and we prayed nature would be merciful.

Today on Sanibel we have blue skies and fair weather again. This would be a good day to book your reservations Gulf Breeze Cottages for this fall. Come to Sanibel and we’ll all have a good time.

New Waterfront View 2 Bedroom

We finally decided to do something about only having three beachfront units… so we had friend of ours come over and paint a mural of the sea! Number 8 has a view of the ocean complete with many of our winged friends! Adam Stephens will be painting at least one more mural on property, this one will be a sea-scape; can’t wait to see how it turns out!
