The perfect getaway

Caper's Beach Cottage was wonderful. Quaint, charming, private. The staff were very helpful. If you want to take someone special to what feels like your own 'private' island, then Caper's Beach Cottage should be your destination. Can't wait to go back!

My husband and I visited this wonderful island and stayed in this adorable cottage for a short time on a road trip around Florida. This cottage was perfect and Gary and his assistants were friendly and wonderful people. Made us feel at home and welcome. I would have loved to stay right there for the rest of the trip but had reservations in different places and had to move on. But you wouldn't have to ask me twice if I wanted to go back I can't wait to see North Capitva Island and Caper Beach Cottage again. Thanks Gary for sharing your paradise with us.

What a great place to stay! We came to the island for a wedding and fell in love with the cottage the moment we stepped in! We were able to enjoy a much needed vacation and couldn't have picked a better spot. Gary and his staff were fabulous! They really know how to make sure your stay is perfect! They went above and beyond for us and really make you feel welcome! The cottage was clean and fresh and more roomy than I had imagined! The view from the cottage itself was enough!

We spent a long weekend at Caper Beach Cottage - and had a WONDERFUL time! Such a lovely home, absolutely perfect setting - such an adorable gem ON the beach. We are very grateful for Gary's hospitality. In fact he went over and above by assisting with logistics - taxi and ferry - seamless travel, much appreciated. All smiles post North Captiva Island visit - we will go back!

Five Nights in Paradise

This charming cottage was way more than we expected. Immaculate and pretty. Perfect for a couple and ON the beach. Really on the beach and really nothing else quite like it on North Captiva. If we had thought it would have been half as good, we would have booked two weeks. Gary is an unbelievable source as he really knows North Captiva. We will definitely be back. The most relaxing five days that we have had ever on vacation. We ended up cooking at home every night as you really could not find a good reason to leave the cottage. North Captiva is an enchanting place. Thank you, Melanie and Marten

NO CARS IN THIS UNSPOILED PARADISE,

As you may know, Upper Captiva Island is accessed only by boat, or by small plane into a private airstrip. The island is approximately 4 miles long and a ½ mile wide at its widest. A little more than one-half of the island is owned by the state of Florida and is managed as a preserve. There are about 320 homes on the island and of those, approximately 120 are available for rent. Four small restaurants, a general stores and two beach boutiques comprise the only stores on the island. There are about 70 full-time residents. Island transportation is by electric golf carts which helps to keep the island a peaceful and relaxing get-a-way. Beachcombing, fishing, and walking the nature trails in the State Preserve are a special treat for those who enjoy the simple things in life.
