Perfect beach getaway! What a gem!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend in the cottage with our two dogs and can't wait to go back! Claudia was there to welcome us and just a text away if we had any questions or needed anything. The kitchen had everything we needed to make breakfast each day and the grill outside was a great option to have! The cottage was very clean and comfortable - even the bed was comfortable which is a huge plus and not always the case in rentals!!!

The location was perfect...across the street from the grocery store, bar/restaurant and a marina where we rented a boat each day. There were so many great places to boat including secluded beaches and restaurants - great way to spend a couple of days! The beach at the cottage was very nice too and on a quieter part of Ft Myers Beach. It was nice being able to use the beach area in front of the main house too! The cottage is set just behind the main house and has parking right at the door.

It's a quick 5 minute drive into town where the were tons of options for food and drink. And if you have dogs...this is a really great option since the beach and many restaurants were dog friendly! It was our first time visiting that area, but we travel quite a bit and were very impressed with the entire experience!

Nice property.

  • 4 of 5

It was lovely. The landscaping was beautiful. The studio was great. Owner was very sweet and easy to work with. Beach was perfect. Only problem was shower had low water pressure. You could tell that a lot of effort was put into making this property special and we appreciated that. We would stay at this unit again. Thanks Claudia.

Great for a Romantic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our brief weekend getaway to the Cottage. We are pretty seasoned travelers and typically stay in 5 star hotels we chose the Cottage because we were seeking a more laid back "chill" atmosphere. Just stating this for perspective. I will start with the only thing we would have liked to be different. The Cottage is 30 steps from the beach; but there is a large house between it and the beach. You can still see the ocean from your kitchen window, but know going in; you don't have an unobstructed view to the water.

Otherwise: the Cottage is a studio floor-plan so it is perfect for Couples or families with small children. It was clean and comfortable with a supplied kitchen, washer & dryer, coffee maker, blender, beach towels and even some misc. items you wouldn't expect like small bottles of shampoo, body wash, etc. The list goes on, but you get the idea. It is close enough to dining options but not right in the middle of the busy area's; which we prefer. In fact, we would have preferred it was even a little more secluded, but that is not easily found.

We are beach people: and the beach was fantastic: not crowded at all (we visited in mid October). Sand Dollars everywhere, very little tide and great assortment of shells to occupy your time. The nicest amenity this property offers is access to lots of beach extra's that you would be paying extra for at other properties: Paddle Board, Kayak, Beach Chairs, Table, Umbrella, Bikes and other Blow up and sand toys. We have stayed at other places and easily added another $300 - $500 for access to these items.

Claudia was very attentive, checking in to make sure everything was going well providing her cell number. We didn't need to call her but knew we could if needed. We had a Fantastic trip just sorry to be back in 50 degree weather here in Missouri.

cute, cozy and clean

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay in the cozy cottage on the beach. It was a perfect get away for myself and my two daughters and my toddler grandson. The owner was both hospitable and helpful. Our trip was a birthday celebration; so, we had dinner at the Bubble Room on Captiva. So fun. The cottage is steps from the beach, which is beautiful and uncrowded. I will definitely recommend this cottage to friends and family. We are already thinking about when we can make a return trip.
