A Trip to Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, our first trip to the Beach Cottage-what a place! EVERYTHING provided that you could possibly need! The decor are furnishings are just perfect and the cottage is extremely clean. The screened lanai view is breathtaking and the beach is just steps away. There are awesome beach chairs, coolers, beach towels and numerous other beach accessories that made the stay even more relaxing and convenient! The beach is the best around-wildlife abounds-more birds than we can name, numerous dolphins everyday, fishermen in boats casting nets right in front of us! Walking on this beach is the best! Great restaurants and entertainment are a short walk or drive away. (We highly recommend Bubble Room's Orange Crunch Cake, Doc Ford's Beach Bread, and Mucky Duck's Clam Chowder and Seafood Platter:)

What a fantastic place, highly recommended and we hope to be back in the future!

Beautiful Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This beach cottage has an excellent location. It is close to the beach, pool and within walking distance of Captiva Village. The sunsets from the screened lanai are incredible. We appreciated how clean it is and the beautiful island decor and bright colors. We are already discussing a return trip. We recommend this property.

Beach Cottage Beauty

  • 5 of 5

This was our 7th time staying at this beach cottage and it never disappoints! The location is wonderful, right on the Gulf beach where you can walk for a couple of miles in each direction and watch beautiful sunsets on the lanai. It is a ten minute stroll to "downtown" Captiva where there are restaurants, shops and access to day cruise excursions and parasailing, jet ski, bike and kayak rentals. The cottage has everything you need to make your stay comfortable and relaxing and the decor is charmingly "beachy." In addition to the beach, there is a pool and tennis court. In addition to Captiva attractions, a quick 15 minute drive takes you to interesting attractions on Sanibel...J.N. "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge, Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum and C.R.O.W. (Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife.) We have stayed in other places on Sanibel and Captiva over the years, but this is hands down the best! We book our return before we leave every year!

Paradise

Captiva is such a gorgeous place to vacation and to stay at this Beach Cottage really made our stay awesome! We loved all the beach colors in the decorating and the cottage had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The location is great, so private and quiet. Loved sitting on lanai and listening to the sea pines! Tried lots of new restaurants on the island and we were not disappointed. We will return again to this beautiful place!!
