About The Owner

We live in nearby Fort Myers, FL, but previously lived in Captiva and Sanibel, FL, and purchased the cottage in March 2011.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2011

Why The Owner chose Sanibel Island

We have always loved the Old Florida feel of White Caps cottages. They're right on the beach and we didn't want a high rise. We have a dog, it's the perfect little beach place for a dog. We're close enough to use the cottage when it's not rented.

What makes this cottage unique

We love the mid island location. You're close to everything here. There is a wonderful farmer's market on Sunday's in season. Several restaurants are within walking distance and you can bike everywhere.

Nothing could have been finer!

  • 5 of 5
The location of White Caps is absolutely perfect..........just steps away from the beach, as stated in the description. The cottage is very crisp and clean with decor that is soothing and very fitting for the beach. The main criterion when looking is "pet friendly", and with tile floors, it made it easy for us to sweep out sand that we bring in. We always prefer a cottage as compared to a condo in order to avoid throngs of people......great choice here! The layout of the small cottage was perfect, the bed was comfortable, and the pebble floor of the huge shower was grand! Out the back door, the water hose and shower were so nice to get rid of the sand from the beach. I pondered on whether to bring our own comfortable beach chairs and did not.........the owners had excellent beach chairs and an umbrella! From the beginning of my inquiry about the property, I communicated directly with the owner. I always appreciate and received very prompt replies. On the day of our arrival, even though we had not planned to do so, we arrived much earlier than anticipated. I emailed the owner and let her know that we were in the area and would like to get settled if at all possible as soon as the cleaners finished. She called much earlier than the check-in time and let us know we were welcome to go ahead to the cottage. That was certainly unnecessary on her part but VERY helpful! There is nothing about our visit to this property that could have been improved. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!

Absolutely Perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5
We couldn't have been more pleased with this cottage. It was absolutely perfect. Betsey was so prompt in responding to our emails from our first inquiry to our last. This cottage is literally steps to the beach. We liked the ease of walking out the door and being on the beach within a minute. Whether it was to hunt for sea shells, walk the beach or watch the sunset, the location couldn't have been any better. I would not hesitate to stay here again. Just perfect!!!

Perfect Sanibel Retreat!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I recently rented this property for our summer vacation and could NOT have been more pleased with this cottage! It has been immaculately kept, decorated beautifully and just makes you feel relaxed! All the finishes in the cottage were new and updated, from the spa like shower to the beautiful flooring, large flat screen TVs, and very efficient kitchen. Betsey provided all the cookware one would need to make this a pleasant stay and I can say that because we only ate out once and cooked all our meals at the cottage. My husband loved that it came with a weber grill, which we also put to good use! I have to admit that I was nervous about renting because the building is a duplex, but I can happily report, we never heard a peep out of our neighbors, as the house was extremely sound proof, definitely no paper thin hotel walls here! The absolute best part of the trip was staying steps from the beach! It was so nice to wake up each day and head out to the beach ( with the umbrella and chairs provided by Betsey) and hang out on the beach and easily walk back to the cottage to grab a drink, lunch or a bathroom break. Besides the fabulous beach location, it is also a short drive into town if you would like to try one of the many restaurants/shops Sanibel has or if you need to visit one of the town grocery stores, Bailey's or Jerry's, as they are both a short ride away! We have been to Sanibel before and I have to say this is our newly discovered "secret" and we definitely plan to return, best place to stay on the island, for sure!!

Charming beach retreat

  • 5 of 5
The cottage is very comfortable and has top notch amenities. We loved the walks on the fabulous
beach, especially at sunset. We had bicycles delivered to the cottage and spent many days exploring
the island. We plan to return.
