Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here this past Christmas (2016) for 9 nights and had a great time at this perfectly located house. The house does have everything you need for the beach (wonderful thick beach towels!), sitting on the lawn overlooking the canal (comfortable lounge chairs), and very nicely decorated house. The kitchen has everything you need to cook and made the couple of meals I prepared there a breeze.

We walked to the Fish House a couple of times for dinner (great food!) and we took the canoe out in the canal a few times. We saw some manatees swimming in the canal right next to the dock! Truly magical!

Ken was a superb host, so friendly and nice. My husband, son, dad and brother even did a half day fishing charter with him and had a fantastic time and caught a bunch of fish.

Additionally, Ken was super fast to refund our deposit. We hope to stay here again if we return.

Great location & very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Very nice place in a great location with easy access to the beach, shops & restaurants. The house is very comfortable with everything you need for a short or long term stay! And you can watch the fish jump (or fish!!) in the canal out back. Owner was responsive and readily available. Thank you!!

Cute little house

  • 4 of 5

My close friends and I very much enjoyed our stay at the house. The layout was nice and all amenities advertised were offered. The owner checked in a few times to make sure we had everything we needed. It was very clean and anything we needed was easily found. My only complaint, which really is just a discrepancy, is that in the ad it was not mentioned that it was a duplex. The neighbor kept to himself and was pleasant when we met, but we were expecting just a house, not a duplex. Would love to come back in the future. Thank you!!

Fun at the Captain's Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our week at the Captain's Cabin. It was exactly as the photo's show. Ken and Beatrice were excellent hosts. The rental was well equipped, clean, and conveniently located to the beaches and restaurants. We even went out fishing with 'Captain Ken' and had a great time. We look forward to coming back!

Well equipped, clean, great location

  • 4 of 5

As the title says, the house was well equipped with everything as listed. The location was perfect. We would drive the family to Bonita Beach, drop them off, then return the vehicle and I would ride one of Gary's bikes to the beach, about a 10 minute easy ride.

Great place, great host

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at this very conveniently located house. It was everything the photos showed it would be, just maybe a little tighter then we had anticipated. For us, (myself, my husband and adult son),it was fine...4 people may find it a little snug.

Ken was a fantastic host. Spent hours just after we arrived getting the main TV fixed through the cable company- and we all know how much fun dealing with them is!! He even brought us some fresh fish he had caught one day.

Quiet street, rarely even saw neighbors & walking distance to The Fish House and a couple other local restaurants.

Be sure to take a bike ride to the beach, especially on weekends, parking is totally if you get lucky!
