Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello: We just back home yesterday and are still a little jetlagged. I would like to thank you for everything. You made our stay a true vacation. We were able to spend quality time with our children and the Cottage was exactly what we were looking for.

We hope to come back again, maybe next year.

Great condo for my young family

  • 5 of 5
We just returned home after a wonderful week in Captiva at this darling beach house. I have three children under 8 and everything we needed for the week was included at the home. We were also just steps from the beach and the pool, both of which were very quiet and comfortable. The village with shops and restaurants was very close and the marina for boat rides was just down the street in the south seas resort. I would highly recommend this condo not only for how great it was but also because Dave and Ann were so great to work with. When we vacation in Captiva again, I will definitely return to this home.

We will be back

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved this place!
We cannot say enough about this rental and the location. It was perfect for our family of five which consisted of our children ages, 23, 20 and 15. We came in on the 24th and stopped at the Publix grocery store before hitting the causeway to stock up on breakfast and lunch items.
The rental was right on the beach and provided all that we needed. Beach chairs were provided and the walk to the beach was only about two minutes if that. Get up earlier in the morning to look for shells and again about late afternoon. Make sure that you take bug spray or buy it there. The No See Ems will get you in the early morning hours and the late evening hours.
We did go to Jerry’s grocery store twice on Sanibel. Once to pick up a birthday cake for our 20 year old and Blanche did a wonderful job with the cake. The second time to get additional lunch and snack foods. Prices were not that out of the ordinary.
The area provided a gas grill of which we were able to grill twice during our trip. Hit RJ Otters for breakfast; try the Mexican food restaurant, Mucky Ducks and the Key Lime Bistro. The food on the island is really nothing special so don’t expect that much. All the restaurants had a nice atmosphere and the staff was good.
For things to do, contact Captain Paul’s Yacht Charters for a wonderful cruise, YOLO for Sup boards and other equipment, Island Photography for family photos and Captiva Kayak Co. & Wildside Adventures for an excellent kayak trip.
Finally, we would like to thank Ann for answering all our questions and making this such an enjoyable, relaxing trip. We will definitely be back next year.

A very relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5
Our family enjoyed a relaxing vacation in the Beach Cottage. The beach was very quiet and so close. This was our first time staying on Captiva. We have stayed on Sanibel 3 times. We saw several fabulous sunsets. The cottage was equipped with everything we needed for our week, including beach towels, chairs and some basic beach toys for the kids. Our kids really liked the heated salt-water pool. We rented fishing poles from Jensen's and caught some fish right from the beach. And biked into town several times for ice cream. If you are renting bikes, we think that Billy's Bikes has a better selection than Finninore's.

Fabulous retreat, close to the beach so we could go back and forth frequently without having to " pack things up". The beach is secluded enough to share with neighbors only. We all slept well, dreaming every night, waking to the sounds of the water coming to shore. Renting this condo was seamless and professional. We spent Easter here, a birthday here, came back to back years. Breakfast was spent on the screened in patio every day. I would recommend to everyone for it is supreme property at an affordable price. The management company was easy to contact and all matters are organiZed and figured out to make your vacation that much easier.

Wonderful relaxing vacation

  • 4 of 5
The cottage was exactly as advertised. The place was very clean and well appointed. Nothing was "old and tired". Dave, the manager, was very responsive and helpful and gave us good information on where to buy groceries and wine prior to coming to the island.
Being so close to the beach, one can hear the ocean at night. It was cool so we did not need air conditioning and had the windows open much of the time.
So why didn't we give it five stars. The only reason is this unit is on the lower floor and one can hear the footsteps of the occupants above in the upper unit. Adults are relatively quiet but with kids... There is nothing the owner or managers can do about this. It is what it is. Having said this I would still highly recommend this property.
One note on the restaurants on Captiva. Most are relatively expensive for what they are. There is no Fine Food on Captiva. It's mostly beach, bistro, pub type food. If you want something better go to the Mad Hatter or better still Il Cielo on Sanibel. They are well worth it.

Amazing Relaxing Cottage

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 4, including 8 and 10 year old boys enjoyed our week long stay at the cottage. The unit is in the best location in Captiva. You are right on the beach and in a very quiet area within gated South Seas Resort. We practically had the entire beach to ourselves which made it great for just relaxing and spending quality family time. When the beach was too hot or the kids wanted a change, the pool was perfect for the kids since they love the fresh water a bit more than the salt water and there were lounge chairs for the adults. The cottage was stocked with everything you need, from tons of kitchen pots, pans and utensils to plenty of towels, bedding, extra blankets to books to read. I would recommend parasailing and a fishing charter (we used Jimmy at Tween Waters- the 4 hour "Surf and Turf" charter). As far as food, we were very disappointed with The Bubble Room's food. The décor was interesting, but seemed very outdated these days. The most amazing food we had by far was at Doc Ford's in Sanibel (even though there is now a second location at the entrance to the South Seas Resort. Our waitress said that the new location was "still working out the kinks".
Thank you for a wonderful vacation in paradise! We can't wait to return to this exact cottage.
