About Michael and Kathy Farley

A long time Sanibel lover and White Caps Cottages owners. We enjoy sharing our cottage with those who are looking for a unique beach cottage experience.

Michael and Kathy Farley purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Michael and Kathy Farley chose Sanibel Island

We are beach people. The sand and shelling with family is our idea of Paradise.

White Caps 8 is our little piece of a Sanibel Heaven.

What makes this cottage unique

Respite from the daily push of life-

Sunsets from the porch and living / dining room-

A view of the Gulf interrupted only by sea oats, sea grapes, Mr. T, or resident gopher turtle, cabbage palms and, yes, sand, shells, and the lapping Gulf waves.

If that's not enough for you there are all kinds of activities from shelling to shopping to do.

Perfection

  • 5 of 5
I spent a week in this wonderful cottage on a personal retreat. Just amazing. Views of the ocean from every room, sunset from the couch! Uniquely positioned geographically so you can enjoy both sunrise and sunset right out your door. Quiet, gorgeous birds and dolphins every day, stunning starry sky at night. I have traveled extensively and I have never felt such a strong urge to stay forever. If you are looking for a peaceful vacation absorbed in nature, you cannot find anything better than this on Sanibel. I will return again and again. Enjoy!

Beautiful beach cottage

  • 5 of 5
This cottage has the best location of the White Caps Cottage group, closest to the beach and spectacular views from all windows. Just a short trail walk from the door and you're right on the beautiful beach. Beach views are spectacular! From the cottage windows all you see is the beach. The cottage itself was loaded with amenities, more than we imagined. Very tastefully decorated and comfortable, quiet too.
We will only book this cottage when we return to Sanibel Island, we highly recommend this wonderful place to stay. Thank you for a memorable vacation home away from home.

lovely getaway

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed at White Caps 8 and had a wonderful time. The cottage was lovely, quiet and amenities as advertised. My husband and I spend many afternoons on the beach and biking all over the island. We enjoyed the beach view out the front windows and found the whole cottage comfortable and homey. Grill out back is one of the baby Weber grills, so don't think you are going to be doing a big meal on there - we ended up only using it once. Some beach chairs, etc. on the front porch. Found the White Caps group of cottages to be very friendly and welcoming. This isn't the place you want to book if you want all the resort amenities (pool, tennis courts, etc.), but if what you want is a safe, quiet, respite away from your regular cares, and super easy access to the best beach around, this is your place. We would absolutely come back.

My only comment, and I hesitate to mention it because it didn't really affect our visit negatively, but it might be useful information for anyone planning a trip, is that since the house doesn't come with beach towels we arranged in advance to rent beach towels through the management company (Royal Shell, $2.50 per week) which sounded like the perfect deal. We arrived on island and were told that the towels were in the unit, and then charged for them. Got to the unit Saturday evening, no towels. Management office closed. Emergency number (I realize this is hardly an emergency, but it was the only number I had) told us they would try to get someone out with towels. No towels, no phone call. We bought towels on Sunday. No phone call back even on Monday, until I called them. No apologies, just "are you sure you didn't miss them?" Believe me, the cottage isn't that big. They did refund our money. Let me reiterate - I'm just relaying this so anyone booking can be aware in terms of their own planning and follow-up.

Weather was perfect, and everyone we encountered on the island was friendly and helpful. White Caps is in a good location, just 2 miles by bike to the grocery store, and most of the island shopping. We also spent a great day biking the Ding Darling trail - marvelous bird watching. Highly recommend it, and we hope to come back.

Quaint, quiet, cottage, directly beach front AND pet friendly

  • 5 of 5
We are in the middle of our week in this delightful cottage. Old world charm with simple furnishings, just like owner explained. Quite adequate for the 2 of us and our quiet dane. We will see how comfy the pull out is when our daughter and her friend arrive later this evening. My only complaint is the swivel chair is only other soft seat besides the coach and it's not very comfortable for either of us to sit. Having said that, I am checking into rate and possibility for staying next year. I'd strongly recommend it, but I'm afraid the secret will be out---we want to come back and stay longer. Thank you!!

Sanibel is world renown for sea shell collecting with a Sea Shell Museum right only minutes away from the cottage.

Tarpon fishing right off the beach, with Dolphins playing and the occasional Manatee swimming down the shore line to.

Wonderful restaurants for every taste, and fresh sea food available to take home to cook on the BBQ.

Aside from the Gulf with boating, swimming, shelling, and relaxing on the beach, there are Golf courses, biking, hiking and local theater to attend.

Or, Dine and Dance at Traditions Restaurant and Inn only a short walk up the beach from the cottage, or have meet up with everyone after a day on the beach at the Sand Bar for drinks and dinner.

If you want to go off Island to explore you can check out Ft. Myers for Edison's Home and Museum and historic downtown Ft. Myers... or, go over to Pine Island to see the famous Tarpon Lodge and go across the street from the lodge to see ancient native Calusa Indian Shell Mounds and the Randall Research Center.

and so much more....
