Overview

About the property

Newly renovated 2 bedroom cottage, in the village, beach out your back door

Beach Daisy is a beachfront cottage located at the end of Captiva Drive, very private but still walkable to all the village amenities. The cottage is set back from the beach, so you enjoy privacy yet easy access to the gulf. You can enjoy a view of sunset and great breezes sitting on one of the two porches. Just a few steps to the backyard and down the little path and you are on the beach! No long walks trudging chairs, toys, and cooler to the beach because it's right out your door. Beach Daisy has also been COMPLETELY remodeled! New everything! Brand new kitchen with all Kitchen-Aid appliances (new kitchenware as well- everything you need), brand new bathrooms with beautiful handmade tile + master bath with a soaking tub and outdoor shower, brand new fixtures throughout the house, all antique pine floors, king bed in master and two twins in second bedroom + queen sleeper in living, window seat with bookshelves for reading, indoor and outdoor dining areas that seat 8 (in case you have a large family and want to rent our adjacent property- https://www.vrbo.com/801590 ), two screened in porches with two seating areas (one sofa and two chairs and the other two swinging loungers), large backyard for lounging and grilling, laundry room right by the backdoor so no dragging wet sandy clothes through the house, AND all brand new beds + linens! For coffee, Starbucks is a short walk down Captiva Drive, or if you prefer to make it at home (or a mimosa) we have everything you need! For sunset cocktails, the Mucky Duck is also a short walk down the beach or Doc Ford's right down the street. The house is located at the very end of Captiva Drive so it has all the convenience of renting in the village, yet so private!!

COMING IN LATE FALL, 2018:

"The Turtle Shed", a separate tiny guest cottage with King Bed, private outdoor shower, design and finishes equivalent to main Beach Daisy cottage. Photos available in October.

About Susie Henry

We are from Missouri. We fell in love with Captiva for it's amazing beach with shells...shells...and more shells, for the gorgeous bay with fishing and boating, for the wildlife (dolphins, manatees, shore birds, sea turtles, etc.) ...the Captiva culture respects and preserves them all. The beach is also not overly crowded as there are no high rise condominiums allowed.

The people in the village restaurants and shops are always friendly and nice. Who wouldn't be, living in this little paradise.

Susie Henry purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Susie Henry chose Captiva

We bought Beach Daisy as part of another parcel with another historic beach cottage. Adjacent to the undeveloped Rauschenberg land, these two cottages are very private and secluded, yet the location is right in the center of the 5 mile long Captiva Beach, one of the prettiest in the country.

Our dream is to make this into a little family compound with 2 ground level cottages and extra cabana bedroom, shared pool and other amenities, and meandering pathways to the beach.

What makes this cottage unique

Certainly unpretentious and funky, Beach Daisy captures the authentic beach experience. Be peaceful and private, make your own fun...all the ingredients are here!

Great stay at Beach Daisy!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Captiva and we couldn't have found a better spot than the Beach Daisy. The home is exactly as the pictures show - very clean, very close to beach, very comfortable - beautiful home. Additionally, the home is fully stocked with all the essentials and very close to everything you could ask for, including restaurants, shopping, grocery, etc. As good as this home is, what stands out the most and made our trip special, was the attention we received from Susie and from Sarah. We've stayed at many VRBO locations and they are second to none in their attention to detail and putting the needs of their guests first. We loved the Beach Daisy and will definitely return!

Owner's Response: Thank you! It's important to us that people have chosen to spend their vacation time at our cottage. Captiva is very special and so we set out to redo this place to be worthy of its great location. We are blessed to be able to share it.

Beach Daisy is the only place to stay :)

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying at the Beach Daisy for over 14 yrs. It was just a little old cottage but the best location on the Island. Now thanks to Susie & Hadie for making this little old cottage into a beautiful comfortable cottage with everything you need. The screened porches are fantastic and we love the swings :). The kitchen is all updated appliances and cookware. The beds are so awesome along with the bathrooms. My husband just loves the outside shower with nature :) The little path to the beach is only footsteps from the house to the beautiful beach and loungers to relax in. You are so close to everything from shopping, eating, collecting shells, watching the Dolphins go by everyday and the wildlife that's around you. The owner Susie is a sweetheart and will make your stay fantastic, and she also has her manager Sarah who is lovely and will help you with what ever you need. The Beach Daisy has been like our 2nd home to us every year and we are so grateful for Susie and Hadie for all they have done and still sharing this little piece of paradise. We cannot wait to come back next year :)

Perfect for family and friends, beautiful, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Beach Daisy is more than a flower - it is a gem!! Beautifully furnished with every amenity you can think of, super comfortable beds and pillows and couches and porch swings- and outdoor shower - a chef’s kitchen- and steps to the best beach in Florida. We were able to rent the owners’ cottage next door too - Willey Cottage- also a favorite and a very special place with incredible views- and so our extended family was together but with lots of quiet napping places for adults and corners for the teenagers to get their alone time! We ended up cooking in and having family dinners every evening because it was so easy and comfortable. That was after the sunset on the beach each evening, of course! With all the excellent beach furniture also supplied when you rent the cottage. Susie, the owner with her daughter Hadie, has truly thought of everything to make these the best homes-away-from-homes I have ever rented. And she and her manager, Sarah, are lovely and generous with their time and attention.

Owner's Response: Thank you, thank you, to our first guests who stayed in both cottages as a family vacation. When we were planning them, we thought this location and privacy would be great for families, extended families, or close friends to occupy both, but also wanted to preserve them for just couples. Success!! We are so glad you enjoyed having them both! And the best part of your stay was the note left in the puzzle! We loved it!! :)))

GREAT PLACE--GREAT FOOD AND DRINK. PARADISE

  • 5 of 5

WOW!! We loved every little thing at the beach daisy. We have been going to south Seas for 42 years. Knowing it might be our last time I took a chance and booked "Beach Daisy". Great place for a family or another couple. Looking back--my only regret is that we did not have more time to just sit and enjoy our porches and back yard. Perfect.

If planning on cooking at home a lot--best read up on induction cooktop. Low heat. We decided not to try. Missed out on an adventure. Just didn't want to be the ones to burn down such a beautiful place.

A hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

This cozy cottage is perfect in every way imaginable. From the relaxing porch swings, the outdoor shower, to the adorable window seat-not a detail was missed! I rarely feel like I’m at “home” when I travel, but we all instantly felt right at home at the Beach Daisy. We can’t wait to return!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you J! We're so glad you enjoyed your time there. The location is so amazing, private yet close to the village, that we pretty much spared no expense in making it very nice for family's special times together.

Words alone cannot describe...

  • 5 of 5

Words alone cannot describe what awaits you at Beach Daisy.

This is a total re-do of the original house...and it is now a home.

This is NOT your typical rental...not by any stretch of your imagination.

Do expect to find the latest in decor...appliances, pillow soft bedding, HVAC, plumbing fixtures...and on and on.

My favorite is the outdoor shower - complete privacy...and one with Mother Nature.

Thank you Susie for all you have done to ensure a wonderful vacation.

Cannot wait to return next year!
