About Kirstin, Yolanda, or Randy, OurCaptiva.com_LLC

We live on island, as does our staff. We provide quick response to needs. Of still greater interest is the Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, 5 miles from the cottage, south on Sanibel as well as Sanibel recreation center.

Kirstin, Yolanda, or Randy, OurCaptiva.com_LLC purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Kirstin, Yolanda, or Randy, OurCaptiva.com_LLC chose Captiva Island

This is a gorgeous private acre on Captiva's world renowned beach. This small, Olde Florida Cottage is like a blast from the past with Tropical Landscaping, great beach location, privacy and amazing sunsets; nothing on these islands is closer to the Gulf--what more could you ask for? Awesome, some guests call it shabby chic design.

What makes this cottage unique

Amazing location right on the beach, wonderful views and location. Great spa, amazing tropical landscaping. Full acre on the beach. So close to Santiva Village Marina, groceries, great restaurants, fishing and shelling... walk to Sanibel! Close to recreation center and Ding Darling.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The week went by too fast! My husband and I stayed in the upper suite and my parents stayed below. Everything we needed was provided to us and we enjoyed almost all of our meals out on the patio together. The dolphins swam by on many occasions. We loved the birds at Ding Darling and all of the friendly people on the island. My aunt and uncle came to visit us on two evenings, and we stayed outside and played the ukulele and sang songs while we relaxed and chatted. Everyday we were amazed at a different beautiful sunset. On Sunday night, we made a pile of snacks and watched the Super Bowl up here, that was a treat. We enjoyed the hot tub, the hammock and the seashell hunting nets, but most of all relaxing with the view and the warm weather. We head back to snow and subzero temps today- but I wish I could bottle this place up and take it with me.

Coquina Cottage

  • 5 of 5
We had one of the Best Family Vacations we have ever had :)
We all fell in love with Coquina Cottage, the private serene surroundings. Tropical gardens, hot tub:) and the beach at our front door. A short walk to the Causeway if we needed anything, at the general store, or diner, or fun restaurants. A scenic 3 mile walk?drive to the Town of Captiva , where we enjoyed the restaurants and shops. We hope to return in two years.

Owner's Response: Awesome guests, and no surprise, as our artsy cottage and tropical gardens invites those who love life's simple pleasures. :) Steps to the gulf, drop dead sunsets, beach shelling extraordinaire, 100 yards to the finest dining on Captiva and Sanibel (not the causeway, but small Blind Pass bridge over a great fishing pass which is an outstanding fishing, kayaking & boating attraction.) The village of Santiva is less than 1/4 mile.

This Olde Florida cozy cottage sports art, internet, Netflix, Hi-Def, en suite computer, but most guests love the hammock in the coconut trees, the many different seating venues with & w/out shade ( elevated or on the beach), around the hot tub or in the dappled shade of the lower porch.

Our guests keep coming back for all of these reasons and for the affordable & unique experience of the Captiva Gold coast, of chairs in the sand, of daily sunsets and right on-beach living. Some say it's all about the view, others say it's all about the gardens, and others it's all about steps to the Gulf.... the shelling, the birding, the fishing, boating... on, and on and on. Paradise encapsulated!

Owner's Response: This large property and smaller family cottage allows for privacy, close proximity to the Gulf with no streets to cross IS convenient to all that Sanibel and Captiva have to offer. This is a water-front property and affordable as the only smaller, "old Florida" cottage on a full acre, tropically landscaped oasis. And, all our guests state we have everything needed for a great beach experience.

Perfect little home away from home with beach

  • 5 of 5
I have to say that I was very impressed with Coquina Cottage. You truly can't appreciate all it has to offer until you are actually there. The accommodations were perfect, just enough room and nicely decorated. They have most of what you need in the kitchen. The best part was the close distance to the ocean. It was almost like having your own private beach. We loved it and will come back again very soon!

Owner's Response: This cottage had two lovely suites, separately locked out and usually not rented to two separate families. Generally, we rent one or both suites and if you take the second one, we discount 75% off the cost of the second suite. There is actually a private beach on the Coquina Property, as it is almost a full acre. Just seaward of the property limit is the gulf, literally steps from the property line. So well landscaped, the neighbors to the north are well hidden behind our tropical gardens and to the south, the only neighbors are ospreys and shore birds.

Relaxing Vacation

My husband and I recently stayed at the Coquina Cottages. We loved the close proximity to the beach, we enjoyed walking along the beach with our 2 pets and collecting seashells. The sunsets were amazing. We look forward to returning next year!

Owner's Response: Right on the beach and steps to the Gulf. Amazing Old Florida cottage is great for families, lovers, honeymooners and even small weddings. Shellers love this place as it is so close to water and BlindPass jetty. Sunsets are awesome and truly represent the icing on the case.

Birthday celebration

  • 5 of 5
I booked the cottage to have a beautiful, relaxing place to celebrate my birthday. Coquina Cottage was everything I hoped for. The views were spectacular. I was surrounded by beautiful landscaped grounds and everything I needed was there in the cottage. I have absolutely no hesitation recommended this place for anyone who wants to experience a little bit of paradise.
