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 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.

Private, romantic, adorably decorated

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the last true Florida cottages on Captiva. It is so cute and eclectic lay decorated. It’s pet friendly so we brought our dog, she loved jumping in the water. The beach is literally in the back yard! Can’t wait to get back.

great vacation

  • 4 of 5

Our vacation was wonderful, the little house cute and clean but very little for all of us primarily the downstaris. The upstairs suite was much nicer with great views and plenty of room inside. The house overall has a beachy feel but a little outdated inside. During our stay we had a couple of days of rain and the ceiling on the bottom room stained from leaks. Overall ...it was nice, quiet, comfortable and private. Joe was wonderful host and loved the professional pics he took of our family. Wish I knew we had this opportunity and would have planned nicer clothes for the pics :). The outdoors garden is GREAT! The reason I didn't give it a 5 was the age of home and visible need for update.

Paradise for family or for a couple

  • 5 of 5

Two of my sons and I went to Coquina Cottage for a last trip before one of them leaves for college. We had no idea what to expect, though we were certain a beach getaway would be a lot of fun. The view from the balcony was spectacular, and the privacy of the cottage felt at times like we were on our own island. Beautifully landscaped, convenient and comfortable, we made many memories that I am particularly thankful for. Thank you for a wonderful getaway, and we hope to visit again!

Owner's Response: Thank you Freddie for a very wonderful review! What a perfect way to enjoy some special time with your boys. Many guests return year after year to enjoy the tropical landscaping, amazing views and the privacy of our Coquina Cottage on Captiva's Award winning beach. With a few close by restaurants, general store within walking distance and the best shelling in the world, time and time again our guests enjoy their stay on our Cottage. The feel is truly like having your own private island. We hope to see you again. You and your family are always welcome "feet in the sand" anytime!
