PERFECT LITTLE HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
I agree with all that has been said about this house. The outside spaces, both front and back, are wonderful with wooden decks, not just bare ground like many of the similar houses in the village. We had 2 adult couples which suited the house fine. I personally think that the inside living area would be a little tight for 6 unrelated adults, but the large outdoor spaces make up the difference.
It is one of the best equipped rental houses we have stayed in, with great beach chairs, beach umbrellas, and a beach wagon.
The mosquitos and noseeums were almost non-existant which was very surprising for a house with such beautiful lush vegetation. The hot tube was great.
We rented through the realty company without any contact with the owner...everything was as smooth as could be. The washer and dryer are outside under an overhang next to the house, but it is no problem.
Overall a great little house that I recommend wholeheartedly.

LOVED THIS LITTLE HIDE AWAY

  • 5 of 5
We loved Life's a Beach! We are a family of 6 plus a toddler and we were perfectly happy here. The property is very private and lushly planted with native trees and shrubs. We enjoyed the hot tub and the outdoor rooms as well as the cozy cottage. So easy to stroll down to the beach or ride bikes into town. Captiva is a wonderful get away and Life's a Beach is a lovely way to see it.

FANTASTIC TROPICAL GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
Perfect size Cottage for a group of couples. Absolutely beautiful outdoor space in both the front and back of the house. Very well maintained and scenically beautiful property. While enjoying our stay we grilled on the back deck and relaxed in the Jacuzzi. Seconds from the most gorgeous beach on the gulf and minutes from the center of the chilled out town. We all were thrilled with our choice and loved our stay!

A GREAT BEACH AND WILD LIFE RETREAT!!!

  • 5 of 5
This was an absolutely ideal spot for our second Captiva experience. Location was perfect: on a private road and a quick 3 minute walk to a peaceful private beach with a large variety of shells to choose from, 1 block away to nice restaurants, marinas, small local mini-market. This property is very sexy, with various art work everywhere. It was spotless and neat when we arrived, complete with plenty of clean towels, paper goods, and various pots and pans to cook with. Plenty of room for us to unpack and spread out. Nice kitchen, with all appliances and an eat-in table; refrigerator was spotless as was the stove and sink. It was nice having a washer and dryer -thank you for the the washing supplies. The hot tub on the back yard was also nice to have. A quick drive south takes you to the J. N. "Ding" Darling National Wild Life Refuge. The name says it all: the wild life is spectacular. You should check it out!!!
Back to the house: The owner was very helpful and friendly. She has made sure you feel right at home: for the adults, there are all sorts of books to read; for the little ones, there are crayons, toys, children's books. There are multiple beach chairs, umbrella, beach toys and a beach cart. The area is very nice with multiple upscale homes. You feel safe here from the minute you walk in. I would highly recommend this property to anyone wanting an ideal location, safety, clean accommodations, and classy island living.

Perfect. Exactly what I was hoping for. A homey little beach place, colorfully decorated on a quiet street within walking distance to EVERYTHING you might need or want. My kids and I hope to return again and again.
