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

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.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are happy you enjoyed the Beach Cottage. We take pride in keeping the cottage clean, well equipped and well maintained for our guests.

Amazing Relaxing Cottage

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.

Great- exactly as advertised!

I've stayed at other rental beach cottages in the past, and this was the best experience I have had. The cottage was immaculately clean when we arrived, and all the amenities were there and in good working condition. Everything needed was provided. What you see in the ad photos is exactly what you get, which hasn't always been the case in my past experience.

The property managers were very prompt in responding to my questions and getting information to me. I would definitely recommend this property to others, or return myself if I get the opportunity.

I went with my two teenage daughters and they loved it also. We went to the Shell Museum and the "Ding" Darling Wildlife Refuge, and we took the 90 minute dolphin tour that conveniently leaves from the resort - and enjoyed all of those experiences. Bailey's grocery store had everything we needed at reasonable prices. We did splurge on getting hair and nails done on the island (Sanibel Beauty Shop and Tipz & Toez).

The beach was truly beautiful - blue, warm waters, white sand, and I never saw so many shells. I never once heard "I'm bored" from the girls, which is really saying something.

Best rental value and view on Captiva! WILL rent this unit again!

We had high expectations of our stay at this unit... And our high expectations were TREMENDOUSLY exceeded! Couldn't have scripted a better location, view, or value! Accurate description/photos (photos don't come close to how pretty the grounds really are) of unit and surroundings. Picturesque beach and lush, natural tropical vegetation between condo and beach, great fishing/shelling/SUP'ing, walking distance to the best local spots... Couldn't have asked for more! The unit itself is great! It was perfect for our family of four, but could've comfortably accommodated another 1-2, due to sofa-bed that we didn't need as a bed. Unit is very clean and comfortable, with quality items for renters' use (which is unusual for a rental). Beds are very comfy. My only complain is that the stationary BBQ grill is inconveniently located near pool, but I think this is a South Seas Resort rule, not an owner decision. Would be nice if BBQ grill was outside of unit itself, but no big deal. Also, Dave and Anne, property managers, are great and very helpful. I will be returning to Captiva and this unit, probably multiple times! I can't imagine a better value and more convenient arrangement on Captiva for a vacation rental! STRONGLY recommend!
