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 Captiva Christmas

  • 4 of 5

My family and I enjoyed the Christmas week 2014 at this quaint little cottage. You have great privacy and a wonderful heated pool to enjoy. The weather was fantastic and the shelling was great. The location is great between the two islands and we enjoyed the wildlife on the island including the nesting Bald Eagles. Margarethe was a wonderful hostess and very responsive to our needs. This is one of the islands best kept secrets.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

I've traveled to the Caribbean, British Virgin Islands and many more beautiful places. This place was by far one of the best. He cottage was beautiful, spacious, clean, with all the comforts of my home and many more. But what made this stay extra special was the warmness of Margarethe and Renee. I felt a though I have known them before. I highly recommend this place that I call paradise!

Captivating!

  • 3 of 5

Clean, comfortable refuge. Nicely furnished and very well equipped. A beautiful new kitchen with all necessities and numerous luxuries. The setting is ideal: privacy without isolation and the convenience of both fresh and saltwater.

Great Place to Stay -- For Couple or Family

  • 5 of 5

Captiva Cottage is cozy enough for two yet can easily accommodate a family or group of friends. Wonderfully located, it is private, quiet but within easy reach of the attractions of both Captiva and Sanibel. We loved eating on the enclosed deck, swimming in the heated pool, walking on the beach -- just a short, easy access path away. The kitchen couldn't have been better equipped, and the house was spotless. The owners made some fine recommendations for restaurants and came by to help us set up our wi-fi. And let's not forget the resident eagles nesting high above in a tree near the pool.

A great place for your Captiva/Sanibel visit.

Tranquil, Beautiful, Private

  • 5 of 5

The property is surrounded on all sides by lush vegetation so we were in our own private world. The pool is beautiful and sunny and extremely private. We could have left our bathing suits home! The Gulf is right across the street down your own private lane. Because this cottage is in an area of large private mansions, the beach is very uncrowded. Inside, the cottage is brand new, comfortable, and very well equipped. There is a downstairs suite with a separate entrance so our guests also had total privacy. A short drive down Captiva Drive takes you to all the great restaurants and shops on Captiva or pick up a steak and some Grouper at Bailey's and grill them in your back yard. Yes! Those are Bald Eagles nesting over your pool!
