Take just a few steps and your bathing in the Gulf of Mexico - All the beach and sun you can soak in, very well appointed, great attention to detail. Greatest views, location relatively close to shops, marina and restaurants. Awesome fishing, etc.

Our SUNSETS are awesome, the endless views from the elevated hot tub/SPA are phenomenal. LAZY DAYS in the hammock on beach in our coconut palm grove...so easy ... and life is beautiful. Star gazing is amazing. See Sunsets and sunrises from cottage!

About Our Captiva, LLC

We live on island, as do many of our staff. We provide quick response to needs. Of still greater interest is the Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, 5 miles from the cottage, south on Sanibel as well as Sanibel recreation center.

Our Captiva, LLC purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Our Captiva, LLC chose Captiva

This is a gorgeous private acre on Captiva's world renowned beach. This small, Olde Florida Cottage is like a blast from the past with Tropical Landscaping, great beach location, privacy and amazing sunsets; nothing on these islands is closer to the Gulf--what more could you ask for? Awesome, some guests call it shabby chic design.

What makes this cottage unique

Amazing location right on the beach, wonderful views and location. Great spa, amazing tropical landscaping. Full acre on the beach. So close to Santiva Village Marina, groceries, great restaurants, fishing and shelling... walk to Sanibel! Close to recreation center and Ding Darling.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The week went by too fast! My husband and I stayed in the upper suite and my parents stayed below. Everything we needed was provided to us and we enjoyed almost all of our meals out on the patio together. The dolphins swam by on many occasions. We loved the birds at Ding Darling and all of the friendly people on the island. My aunt and uncle came to visit us on two evenings, and we stayed outside and played the ukulele and sang songs while we relaxed and chatted. Everyday we were amazed at a different beautiful sunset. On Sunday night, we made a pile of snacks and watched the Super Bowl up here, that was a treat. We enjoyed the hot tub, the hammock and the seashell hunting nets, but most of all relaxing with the view and the warm weather. We head back to snow and subzero temps today- but I wish I could bottle this place up and take it with me.

Beautiful Beach and Landscaping

  • 5 of 5

Coquina Cottage has one of the most beautiful beach settings in the world. It not only has the relaxing sand dunes on property with spa and hammock, it has lots of private parking. The property is lushly landscaped so you feel secluded from neighbors. The beach has all the shells you could possibly collect and small waves, perfect for parents with their toddler.

The cottage was as advertised - clean with all the amenities that one needs for a relaxing week. The downstairs unit is a bit tight to fit it all in - we adapted pretty quickly. The open space on the top floor was especially nice to watch sunsets - I recommend taking both top and bottom.

If you wish to break up your relaxing days with elegant dining, the Mad Hatter is a good choice which is in walking distance. You can also purchase almost all you need at the general store across the street.

Thanks so much for allowing us to stay in your property,

Tom, Katya and Mia

Owner's Response: We love to please our guests, and especially appreciate those who recognize the efforts we take to create a memorable experience. Thanks to the many guests such as this family who review us with five stars; you help us keep the cottage reasonably priced for a one acre tropical garden on the beach.

Beautiful price property right on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Coquina Cottage did not disappoint! The property was incredibly beautiful! The lush greenery, the private hot hub, hammock, and plentiful beach chairs make this an amazing place to stay, even if you never leave the grounds. You walk out onto the beach and are overcome by the beauty of the ocean. The beach was very quiet and felt like we had the beach to ourselves. We’ll be dreaming about this place for years to come!

Owner's Response: We love it when guests "get" our wonderful beach cottage. There are no streets to cross, the cottage is very private and perfectly located on the beach with great convenience to the Gulf, fishing, shopping, shelling and more than adequate parking. Did we tell you the views of the Gulf and sunset are spectacular?

A place in paradise

  • 5 of 5

We stayed only a few days but felt home from the first moments. The place was perfect for us both and the dog. The beach so close and the condo so nice we enjoyed every second.

Wildlife was great as well and we took many pictures of the dolphins and pelicans. Will hopefully be able to come again.
