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.

Private & Gorgeous Setting

  • 5 of 5

The property is incredible, private and the landscaping is beautiful! Also a short walk to local restaurants (and very family friendly - necessary as we had our 2 year old with us). We rented the whole house, which I would recommend for privacy and flexibility of space (especially if you're traveling as a family). The Coquina Cottage team was amazing, responsive and eager to help! We rented a crib and some other items through their recommended source, and the customer service was wonderful. We totally dropped the ball and neglected to set up the crib rental until the day before we were heading down...and they made it happen! Only advice, use bug spray and buy itch cream just incase. My husband and daughter didn't get bit, but I was eaten up. Worth it, and we will 100% be going back to Captiva and staying HERE. XO

Owner's Response: This property is a hop, skip and a jump to the Gulf, right on the beach. The islands do at times have a very tiny, annoying insect called "no see ums". Some people are totally immune and some are sensitive. There are creams/oils to protect sensitive skin; we recommend Avon's SkinSoSoft, this seems to prevent the bites.

A perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We look forward to the week at Coquina all year. The cottage is perfect for our family of five and we enjoy every thoughtfully appointed feature. The beautiful landscaping allows you to feel far removed from crowds and traffic and the sunsets on the beach are amazing.

Perfect location with beachfront but the home itself was rundown & needs a lot of maintenance

  • 3 of 5

The upstairs was perfect for our family and we had a great time. Upstairs, more coffee cups, utensils , bowls & plates would be nice.

The downstairs where my brother and his family stayed was not in as good of shape. We called on our first or second day to let someone know that there was a leak in the kitchen and we basically stood in a puddle the entire week whenever we were in there making food which was extremely annoying as you can imagine.

The first two nights the kids had to sleep on the pullout sleeper sofa without any sheets because the only sheets that were left were twin size instead of full-size. We didn’t realize that until late Saturday night but we called Sunday and you ever we spoke to didn’t want to bring them over that late on Sunday and asked if we could wait until Monday. Considering that was a mistake by whoever handles housekeeping in the first place, it wouldn’t take in 10 minutes to pop them over.

The blinds downstairs kept falling off because it is such a tight space getting in and out with the couch there. My sister-in-law was concerned they would fall down on the kids while they were in the bed sleeping so just a suggestion that you may want to replace those with fabric blinds.

On the way upstairs there is a pretty large nail in the center of one step sticking out that we cut our feet on a couple different times.

A couple more normal size beach chairs and umbrellas would also have been nice to have.

More light outside for hanging out in the evenings such as tiki torches especially with the mosquitoes flying around is another suggestion.

In general, a lot of maintenance and just cosmetic updates are very much needed in both spaces.

Sent this same review directly to owner with no response back. Disappointed in the unresponsiveness.

A good thing in a small package

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was most enjoyable. The cottage, while small, was well appointed and perfect for a couple looking to spend some together time with each other. Be sure to bring a camera or two. The flora was nice and kept the outside world unseen. The view from the upper porch was awesome. Frigates and pelicans feeding in the morning and outstanding sunsets can all be seen from the porch. It is a very short walk to the beach and the beach is close to perfect. No problems were encountered. I will be going back next year.

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the beach and loved the house! Wonderful location and perfect for our family vacation! We grilled outside every night, enjoyed seeing dolphins and manatees from the rocks on the beach, strolls on the beach at night, and lovely view of the ocean from the top deck. We loved our stay! Thank you!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We continue to return to this little slice of paradise, we so enjoy the eclectic style of this wonderful place. Morning coffee on the deck upstairs to prepare for the stresses of sitting on beach all day. 2minutes and you are there on your own beach complete with chase and umbrella. Lunch and nap then out to the rigors of beach , the stress of watching Dolphins swim within 50 ft of shore, Osprey fishing

And of course the eternal search for the perfect shell.

Life is good, recommend for everyone. We always take the up and downstairs as we have found it works well for us, we usually are 2-4

So having both works. The location is perfect as you can walk to Sunshine Grill for breakfast and watch for Manatee at Blind Pass bridge. We have not tried Mad Hatter ,however, I understand it is quite good. Our latest find is the Sunshine Seafood Rest. Just great food and fun people. Go enjoy😎?🌴?. LW
