We found Sandcastle online and immediately booked our reservations based on the description alone. Well let me tell you, it was the perfect castle away from home! This home is nicely laid out with a fantastic pool and outdoor entertainment area second to none! We all had our own bedrooms with nice amenities and were all able to take advantage of the roominess within the castle. The elevator made it extremely easy for mom to get around as there are 3 levels to maneuver. There is one large kitchen, fully stocked with pots & pans, dishes, plenty of silver, and a huge table for family style eating. Each main room had a TV and a nice entertainment system in the main living room. Ping-pong was also a nice option to break up the day. The property is close to the beach and several night spots. We rented a golf cart and a two person bicycle on the trip as well - both highly recommended. The property was clean upon arrival and very well-maintained - although it took us a while to find all of the light switches in the house!!! I would highly recommend this property to anybody who wants a Castle near the beach!!

It is hard to leave to go back to the icy cold of Wisconsin! The new pool has been wonderful! Our grandkids especially enjoyed the fountain and the shallow end. We love having a fenced yard and all the privacy that the cottage gives us. The beach has been incredible...most days we have had it to ourselves. Every day it is different and it is always fun to see what it will be like. Most days we have seen dolphins. Piper, our Golden Retriever, has been Queen of the beach! She just wants to swim and retrieve any kind of ball and is quite good at riding the waves. I think she has developed a following! The Cottage has an outdoor shower where we were able to bathe her daily after her time at the beach. We have enjoyed the Ding Darling immensely and have made a daily trip there. We've seen endangered Wood Storks, the legendary lady crocodile,an alligator and so many gorgeous birds. Some of them such as the Blue Herons, Snowy Egret and Great Egrets we have at home in the summer. We kayaked in Tarpon Bay which was so neat. We also went fishing with a guide for Redfish. We came home and prepared them for dinner. It was wonderful! Your perfect location enabled us easy access to many fantastic restaurants both on Captiva and in Sanibel. Our favorites include Over Easy Cafe for breakfasts, picking up take home lunches at Sweet Treats Gourmet and dinners at The Timbers, Doc Fords and Sunshine Seafood. Bob and I so enjoyed our time in Captiva Cottage. It was the 2nd year we stayed and hopefully we will again next year! Your photos give an accurate look into the house which really has all that one needs for their vacation. It is very clean and well maintained.
