'BY THE SEA' BEAUTIFUL COTTAGE IN HEART OF CAPTIVA VILLAGE

Captiva Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

This 2 bedroom plus study Beach Cottage style home decorated with the nautical flare of Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard is sure to delight the most discriminating guest. Located very near the beach in Captiva's Village, breezy porches offer a serene place to relax with a book or dine al fresco. Custom design elements and architectural enhancements add interesting detail in every room.

Spend your days on the beach, then walk to the Mucky Duck for live music, a sunset drink or dinner in Captiva. Rent a boat at the Marina or arrange a guided fishing expedition. Sanibel is just a short drive away, with its shops, restaurants, bike paths and amazing shelling. Enjoy the Ding Darling Wildlife preserve, where you can sea kayak through mangrove islands and view rare birds and other wildlife. Much of Sanibel/Captiva is wild life preserve; this paradise is yours to explore.

Perfect vacation home for active families, reunions of friends, or a weekend getaway. Especially suited to the adult guests, who will appreciate the unique decor and attention to detail. Visitors will enjoy the relaxed pace, and low-key style of Captiva. The soft sands and warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico are less than 1 block away.

Fabulous Vacation Rental

We spent one week at "By the Sea" and loved every minute of our stay. An easy 4 minute walk, our family spent most of the time on the beautiful beach. Hours and hours were spent snorkeling for shells and sea creatures (which we threw back in the ocean, of course.) When not on the beach, we enjoyed riding two blocks to "town" as well as throughout the quaint neighborhood on our bikes with our daughters (ages 7 &11.) Our girls' favorite activity was returning home from the beach with hundreds of shells and spending time in the outdoor shower, inspecting their new finds. This home is decorated beautifully with such attention to detail, so comfortable and immaculately clean. We definitely hope to rent this beach house again in the future.

This is an adorable house, beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Excellent location, only a short walk to the beach, to Andy Ross Ln. (Captiva Downtown) and to a couple of marinas. We had a minor issue with the cable when we arrived and it was immediately solved with the help of Tom - the house caregiver -. I highly recommend this house. I hope we will be back to Captiva Island in the near future and this house will be still available for rent.

Lovely, well appointed cottage

This was our second trip to Captiva and found this cottage to be just a wonderful place for a relaxing week's vacation. The location on Chapin Lane was perfect - close to everything yet on a quiet street. We brought our bikes along and rode them every day - it's a great ride down to the beach at Blind Pass or up to the north end of Captiva. The house is very well equipped and the nautical decor is so detailed we felt almost like we were on our sailboat. Note that if you are planning to cook the only somewhat large market is down on Sanibel - Jerry's Market. We're hoping the owners may consider adding a swimming pool - then the house would be absolutely perfect! We highly recommend this rental home.

This is the perfect house. Beautifully appointed and decorated. The two porches and den/ bedroom give lots of extra areas for people to hang out in. The location, on a quiet street so close to the beach and restaurants couldn't be better. It was everything we wanted. We wouldn't stay anywhere else on Captiva.

Perfect cottage in the perfect location!

This was the perfect cottage for my family! It was within walking distance to almost everything in Captiva. The beautiful beach was less than a block away and the shelling here was better than on Sanibel. The house was beautiful and was bigger than we expected based on the photos. Very relaxing...loved it!
