A wonderful month spent at Captiva Cottage!

  • 5 of 5
Bob and I have enjoyed our month here in Captiva Cottage. It is hard to leave to go back to the icy cold of Wisconsin! The new pool has been wonderful! Our grandkids especially enjoyed the fountain and the shallow end. We love having a fenced yard and all the privacy that the cottage gives us. The beach has been incredible...most days we have had it to ourselves. Every day it is different and it is always fun to see what it will be like. Most days we have seen dolphins. Piper, our Golden Retriever, has been Queen of the beach! She just wants to swim and retrieve any kind of ball and is quite good at riding the waves. I think she has developed a following! The Cottage has an outdoor shower where we were able to bathe her daily after her time at the beach.
We have enjoyed the Ding Darling immensely and have made a daily trip there. We've seen endangered Wood Storks, the legendary lady crocodile,an alligator and so many gorgeous birds. Some of them such as the Blue Herons, Snowy Egret and Great Egrets we have at home in the summer. We kayaked in Tarpon Bay which was so neat.
We also went fishing with a guide for Redfish. We came home and prepared them for dinner. It was wonderful!
Your perfect location enabled us easy access to many fantastic restaurants both on Captiva and in Sanibel. Our favorites include Over Easy Cafe for breakfasts, picking up take home lunches at Sweet Treats Gourmet and dinners at The Timbers, Doc Fords and Sunshine Seafood.
Bob and I so enjoyed our time in Captiva Cottage. It was the 2nd year we stayed and hopefully we will again next year!
Your photos give an accurate look into the house which really has all that one needs for their vacation. It is very clean and well maintained.

Wonderful place to stay in ideal location!

  • 5 of 5
I just wanted to thank you for making our stay on Captiva so enjoyable. We really enjoyed staying at Captiva Cottage. Captiva Cottage was the perfect size, and had everything we needed during our stay. The location has a private feeling, but is close to the beach, and other amenities. We really enjoyed the screened in porch and nice pool area. It was also wonderful to have all the beach gear we needed, already there! My mom and dad celebrated their 35th wedding anniversary, by renewing their vows at sunset one evening, during our stay. There was no one else on the beach, we had it all to ourselves, and the ceremony was beautiful!

Private Paradise!

  • 5 of 5
We had the most wonderful stay at this little piece of Paradise! How wonderful it was to be able to have our own, warm private pool, and then to be able to take a short walk to enjoy the beautiful, private beach and ocean! And our little dog was able to enjoy our vacation with us. The property is like having your own little tropical bungalow. We enjoyed the screened in porch for morning coffee, and evening cocktails. Since the cottage is upstairs, it felt like we were living in a tree house. Not a person or another house in view. We rented bikes and rode into town which was such a beautiful ride. The restaurants are fabulous; The Mad Hatter, Green Flash, and Mucky Duck and everything is so casual. Very relaxing. Margarethe was a pleasure to rent from, and we hope to return someday.. So many memories were made! Thank you for sharing your beautiful property.

A fantastic home for family vacation!!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a week at the wonderful home and everything was fantastic!! The house is just as pictured/described on the listing. The house was very clean. The bedrooms were spacious and the linens were clean. I love that each bedroom had their own bathroom. The room downstairs was perfect and allowed for some privacy if traveling with extended family. The pool was wonderful. We loved the added touch of the shallow spa and the tiki umbrella if anyone needed some shade. The cabana was so nice. The wagon and beach chairs were perfect and made the short walk to the beach easy. The beach is fantastic! Tons of great shells and beautiful sand. We enjoyed the fantastic sunset on the beach every night. We can't wait for a return trip to this house next March! I

Excellent cottage and property!

  • 5 of 5
We had the pleasure of staying at the Captiva Cottage over Christmas 2013, and enjoyed the privacy of the property very much. There was nowhere in the house or pool/ yard area where another house could be seen! And the road was even barely visible from the pool! The beach was a very short walk, and there were complimentary beach umbrellas and and chairs with a wagon to pull them to the beach. The kitchen was well stocked (pots, utensils, tupperware), we did lots of cooking and never wished for anything. One of the highlights of our stay was the bald eagle couple that lives out near the pool! We saw them out and about every day, chirping and swooping around with their fish, they were delightful neighbors! We had a repair (dishwasher) while we were there, and felt Margerethe handled it very well, with plenty of notice, and came to check on it after. The drive to Captiva is a little long, but we thought it was well worth it for the laid-back feel of the island compared to Sanibel. Thank you for a such a relaxing environment Margerethe, we are definitely considering coming back!

Wonderful time in Captiva!

  • 4 of 5
My family of five stayed at the Captiva Cottage the week after Christmas. It was our first visit to the Sanibel/Captiva area and we were very excited. The cottage was a great place to stay. The beach is right across the street and had hardly anyone on it the entire time! Was able to bring our dogs on the beach to play without feeling like we were bothering anyone. The village is a short drive away with great restaurants..parking was difficult at times, but think maybe that was because it was the holidays. There were two grocery stores on Sanibel within a short drive, Jerry's and Baileys. They were great and not too over priced at all as i had anticipated. We rented a stand up paddle board one afternoon, and went on a two hour fishing trip another evening…had a blast both days.
The cottage itself is super cute, and clean. The screened porch was great for morning coffee and the evening glass of wine! The pool was beautiful too…the weather turned a little cooler for us by mid week so we did not use it as much as we would have liked, but when the kids did go in they loved it.
Definitely would recommend this property to anyone especially if you enjoy a nice quiet beach. Staying closer to town would eliminate the need to drive as much, but the beach there was more crowded.
