PEACE LOVE CAPTIVA ... SOUTH SEAS RESORT BEACH COTTAGE

Captiva Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

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

Whether you need a break from the holiday madness or you want to dive headfirst into the festivities, the weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas are wonderful on Captiva Island!

The island's Christmas decorations are breathtaking, and are up from mid November to the New Year. Get in the holiday spirit, tropical-style!

Rates are low, restaurants are not crowded, and the weather is fabulous.

Come experience a tropical holiday season this year! We have weeks available in December.

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).

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.

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.

Exceptional extended stay rates available during September, October, and December (non holiday weeks only). Extended stay is three weeks or more. Must call for rates and terms.

$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.

Just Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
Beautifully decorated, perfect views, low key atmosphere, and within walking distance or a short drive to everything on the island. We have been to Sanibel and Captiva many times, but this was the first time for our family of four. It was a super easy vacation and included everything we could have needed from beach chairs and umbrellas to metal nets for shelling for the girls. We highly recommend staying here and we have already booked our next trip!

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5
The sign above the sliding door says it all: Just another day in paradise. When we found this particular beach cottage five years ago on VRBO, we thought we'd hit the jackpot. It was then and still is now so perfect that we've been coming every year since. The accomodations are excellent, the owners are gracious and professional as is the rental company. The cottage is clean, easy to access, nicely furnished, and we love our private beach. There is much or little to do to fit your lifestyle. We always enjoy the beach, the Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge, and Jenson's Marina. No trip for us is complete without riding bikes, taking a taxi rental to one of the outer islands, shelling, kayaking, and watching sunsets. Both Sanibel and Captiva's restaurants allow us, landlocked midwesterners, to eat fresh, local fish every night, a treat we look forward to every year. Thanks for letting us share what we call a slice of heaven.

Another Magical Week!

  • 5 of 5
Such a magical place! The beautiful decor and thoughtful messages prior to our arrival are indicative of the owner's attention to detail. We come back year after year and are always thrilled with the cottage and the incredible views on the beach everyday. This year was amazing. We saw dolphins near the beach almost daily and met a huge Blue Heron (we named him "Harry") who hung out with us on the beach almost daily when he wasn't fishing. The memories with my daughter here are priceless. We will be back again and again. Quite simply, we love your Beach Cottage, right down to the color of the chairs in the dining area. Thank you for allowing us to share this special place!

Relaxing Retreat!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I were in need of a retreat...physically and mentally. This cottage was the perfect place to do just that. The location is beautiful and peaceful. The cottage is furnished just the way I would want to decorate my own beachside getaway. And, the owner was so responsive and helpful with the reservation process. She even followed up to make sure we enjoyed our visit. I highly recommend this rental!

Captiva Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5
The good news is there were no surprises! The cottage was exactly as represented in the listing. Photos were accurate, house was well furnished and in excellent condition. Distance to beach even better than expected. Beach was beautiful; pool close by and in excellent condition, with plenty of lounge chairs; grill available. The owner went out of her way to make us feel comfortable and maximized our vacation. She was very easy to communicate with and it was obvious she wanted us to enjoy our stay. We enjoyed walking trails at environmental areas, shelling (of course!), biking, and walking the property at South Seas. Enjoyed breakfast at Otters and dinners at Doc Fords, Sunset Grill, Mucky Duck and Sunshine Seafood. Easy ride to Sanibel for shopping. Yes, I would recommend this property.
