Once we saw the house we knew it was the perfect home for our family. A perfect venue for familys of all ages.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so very much for one of the best vacations we have ever taken! Everything is so perfect; we can feel the love of the owners. Lee saved the day by delivering a walker for my 85 year old mother, can’t properly express my appreciation. All 9 of us enjoyed every minute in your beautiful home. We hope to return.

On our way back to frozen Minnesota now.

Holiday at Tropical Breeze Captiva Florida

  • 5 of 5
We had a great holiday in a fantastic location. The house is amazing, easy access for the beach and in walking distance of retaurants. Excellent not having to use the car if you wanted to eat out.
The house was very clean and very well maintained The main bedrooms are enormous and the surround sound music to all rooms (including outside) brilliant.
We don't normally return to the same location but we so enjoyed our holiday here we have already booked for next year and cant wait to be back at Tropical Breeze.

Incredible home!

  • 5 of 5
This was an amazing house. We stayed there for a family reunion vacation and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is just a short walk to a wonderful white sand beach with a lot of shells for collecting. The pool at the house was heated and large so you could have a lot of family members in it at the same time. The house was very clean, well maintained, and just gorgeous. We spent most of our time on the porch off the kitchen. It was a great gathering place for people in the morning. The backyard and porch had complete privacy, despite all the neighboring houses, because of the lush landscaping. The owner and also the caretaker were very available and very helpful. Definitely one of the best vacation homes we have stayed in. Highly recommend it. A great place for family to reconnect as you hardly want to leave it when you are there.

Enjoyed our stay at Tropical Breeze

  • 5 of 5
Spent a week in Captiva and stayed at the Tropical Breeze. Awesome spacious home with all the amenities to make the rainy days sunny. Service was great from pre-arrival until the moment we left. The internet ads for the home we're good but it didnt do it justice until you actually see the place. We love Captiva and already can't wait to go back.

A dream vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We are suffering from PVD - post vacation depression. We agreed that we wouldn't change a single thing about our vacation, if we were so lucky as to do it all over again. The setup of your home proved perfect for a multi-generational gathering such as ours. We took the upstairs master suite, leaving each family with two adjacent bedrooms and their very own laundry!

Our three-year old grandson had a bit of a meltdown the night before we left because he just couldn't understand why we couldn't live there all the time, or at least for "one twenty thousand thirty sixty-seven four three two one days."

The house was spotless when we arrived. Of course with our crowd it didn't stay that way, but we tried to leave it in pretty good shape. Your manager Lee was solicitous, helpful, and really nice. I've rented other places, and I must say it was really, really nice to have the basics already on site - detergents, paper towels, coffee filters, etc. - when we arrived.

We planned an elaborate Olympic Round Robin tournament on the three table games near the pool, but never got around to it because we were having too much fun doing everything else. That will have to wait until the next visit. It was especially nice of you to order five out of six perfect beach days for us!

I hope it continues to be desirable for you to share this beautiful spot with lucky people like us. It is something special!

We really enjoyed our stay at Tropical Breeze on Captiva. The house is well equipped with nice towels, great kitchen utensils, appliances and wonderful extras such as coffee, laundry and dish soap. The house was very clean and uncluttered, bright, colorful updated rooms, with plenty of space to accommodate a group comfortably. The pool (great temp.), play area downstairs, and sun deck are real bonuses.
House has easy access to a beautiful beach, many nice restaurants and shopping. Would love to return!

Tropical Breeze - A Great Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5
We have been vacationing in the Captiva/Sanibel area since 1975 and Tropical Breeze offered everything we've come to love about the region and more... a wonderful beach and the toys to enjoy it, a perfect rooftop deck with spectacular sunset views, lots of room for together-times, special spaces for quiet-times, a pool/tiki bar/play area for fun times, a mid-village location allowing an easy walk to great eateries & interesting activities and a happy, colorful home-like atmosphere. Our stay at Tropical Breeze was fun and memorable!

Captiva
Car: not necessary

One factor that ensures that Captiva is exclusive and its beaches never busy is that you are not allowed to park cars on the roads on the island. Parking is only allowed at the few public car parks or in restaurant car parks. A short walk from the house is Captiva village which is a lovely mix of restaurants and shops. At Tropical Breeze you really can park the car and not use it for days on end. Captiva’s unique west facing position off the coast of Florida means that you have all the benefits of the glorious beach and the fun of the sea as well as incredible sunset views. A short walk away on the east coast is the Roosevelt Channel with its inland fishing and boating.

Golf: Golf Digest ranked the Fort Meyers-Cape Coral area in the top twenty best metropolitan areas for golf in the USA.

The closest course to the house is Redfish Point a nine hole course in the South Seas Plantation Resort located at the north tip of Captiva Island.

There are two 18 holes courses a short distance away on Sanibel Island, the Beachview Golf Club and the Dunes Golf Club.

Notes:
Captiva Island is unlike any other holiday destination in Florida, it has the feel of a tropical island. It is only 5 miles long and up to ½ mile wide, it is unique and unlike any other area in the USA. Over 80% of the Islands’ (Sanibel & Captiva) are a nature reserve, including the world renowned J.N Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge. There are no traffic lights, bill boards or street lights. No building is allowed to be higher than the tallest trees. The speed limit on the island range from 15 to 35mph, a single lane road runs the length of the island. Captiva has a tropical year round warm climate and lush tropical vegetation, wild life is in abundance with Ospreys, Eagles, Pelicans and numerous sea birds, as well as Dolphins and Manatees. Tropical Breeze is located just 2 houses from the beach in Wightman Lane which is in Captiva Village. Captiva’s beaches have been voted in the top 5 in the USA.
