Overview

Captiva Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Enjoy our beautiful, two bedroom, Gulf-front beach cottage in the world famous South Seas Resort on Captiva Island. Our cottage offers breathtaking views of the Gulf of Mexico.

Our beach cottage is constantly updated and beautifully maintained in bright island colors and decor. It includes a full kitchen with Silestone countertops.

The master bedroom has a king size bed and private bath with a walk-in shower. The second bedroom has twin beds and a hall bath with a shower/tub combination. A queen size sofa sleeper is located in the living room. Our laundry room has a full size washer and dryer. The new interior island décor is comfortable and casual.

Our cottage is beautifully landscaped and fronts to two and a half miles of beautiful white sand beaches with excellent shelling. The swimming pool and tennis courts are within steps from our door.

This property is privately owned and located within South Seas Resort. The Beach Cottages are located in a tranquil setting within South Seas Resort and offer much privacy. They are within walking distance of the front gate of South Seas Resort and many Captiva Island restaurants and shops.

Our cottage is in a four-plex (not a large, hotel-like setting). Our washer and dryer are in our cottage (not a shared, outside room). This rental includes the beach cottage amenities: pool, tennis, and beach as shown. It does not include resort amenities. Our cottage is on the first floor with a magnificent view and entrances on both the pool and Gulf sides of the cottage. Gulf side access allows for easy walks to and from the beach with children and convenient storage of beach toys, chairs, etc. There is no road to cross. The beach is accessible by a private sand path for beach cottage guests only (as shown). There are two gas grills located steps from the beach cottage, near the pool.

Captiva and nearby Sanibel Island offer a unique vacation experience year around with numerous restaurants, shops and outdoor activities for all ages. This is a truly wonderful destination for families, couples, and honeymooners.

We use a first class Captiva property management firm for local management of our cottage. Secure payments are made to them once the reservation is made and detailed confirmations/receipts will be provided. As the owner of this property I will NEVER ask you for credit card or banking information , as our property manager handles all payments securely.

We will NEVER ask renters to wire payments to us. If you receive emails appearing to be from us or other vrbo owners offering deep discounts and asking for money to be wired, you are witnessing internet hackers at work.

Homeaway/VRBO offers their opinion on their site stating that 'homeaway payments are the most secure way to pay for your vacation'. We disagree and use a bonded and insured property manager for all our payments. (A fraction of property owners offer 'homeaway payments').

Keys and island information are picked up at our local property manager's location. Emergency maintenance is a phone call away. TRAVEL INSURANCE IS OFFERED.

If our calendar is filled for the week(s) you are traveling, please feel free to contact us. We are happy to make recommendations for other nice properties nearby.

$500 deposit required for weekly stays, $1000 deposit for two or more weeks. Credit cards accepted for deposit only.

Full payment due 30 days prior to arrival.

Thank you for considering our property for your vacation. We will consider renting only to parties who provide a valid

phone number with their inquiry.

Lovely stay at a wonderful cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time visiting Captiva Island and staying at this cottage with my family. Coming from Canada, it was a great escape from the bone chilling January weather. This cottage was a great choice for my young family. The cottage itself was exactly as described in the listing and pictures. Check in was quick and easy. It is in excellent condition and the cottage was spotless when we arrived. Pride in ownership is shown throughout. Beach access is only steps away. On one of the days, we saw dolphins playing from shore, which was a first for us and quite exciting to see. Doc Ford's restaurant is only a 10 minute walk away. We ate there 4 times during our stay! We had our fair share of oysters and stone crab, which were amazing! I must make a point to thank Lynn, the owner. Her communication was excellent prior to and during our stay. She answered all of our questions quickly and was so pleasurable to deal with. Thank you so much! We hope to return again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review. You have been so nice to work with. We are very happy that you loved our cottage and Captiva. We also share your love of Doc Ford's. We were on Captiva the week prior to your stay and also ate there numerous times, even got to meet Randy Wayne White eating his dinner at the bar. He graciously signed books for us. Please come back. We have many annual guests and would love to have you return.

My husband and I arrived on December 27th from Massachusetts,we left a cold, gray day~ and arrived to a BREATHTAKING west coast sunset! The cottage was perfect! Clean and bright, well equipped kitchen and amazing views! Close enough to walk to restaurants,shoppes, Chapel by the sea,and boat tours! A perfect beach front getaway!! We will absolutely be returning!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review of your stay. As I recall, when we first spoke you said you had walked the beach to find the location you liked most, then found us on line. I am very happy that you had such a nice time and loved the beach cottage and location. We look forward to having you back. Stay warm!

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

We have enjoyed staying in this unit 4 times now. It is a great location, right on the beach with wonderful sunset views. A leisurely 5-10 minute walk takes you into "downtown" Captiva with its shops and restaurants. Doc Ford's restaurant is on the property and has amazing clam chowder and peel and eat shrimp. The Green Flash has wonderful Grouper de Paris and snapper. Sunset Grille has great breakfasts. Key Lime Bistro has a great menu as well...all is delicious. Sunshine Café and Wine Bar also has great food. Mucky Duck is good for sunset drinks and entertainment and the Bubble Room is a fun, kitschy place to take the kids. You can also walk the beach for miles. The cottage is clean with comfortable furnishings and is well appointed with kitchen needs as well as beach towels and chairs. It is decorated in a wonderful, fun "beachy" theme that brings the beauty of Captiva inside. We certainly will return!

Great place to relax on Captiva

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed on Captiva Island for 30 years at a variety of rooms, condos, resorts, etc and by far this beach cottage has been our best experience. Everything was very clean, comfortable furnishings, and the "little things" that add to our vacation experience was provided for. Great view from the deck and a 2 minute walk to a more quiet part of the beach. Nice for a couple or families. Certainly will stay again and book same cottage. Really nice owners to work with.

looking forward to our return

  • 5 of 5

we have been to this cottage more than once now and have such an enjoyable relaxing time. the cottage is in a fantastic location to the beach, pool and to dining also. this unit was comfortably appointed and we simply cant wait to get back here again. having access to the owners beach chairs and towels really made it easier for us since we didn't need to pack them. the owners enjoyment of sharing their cottage really shows in all the little things they have for the guests.
