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.

We and staff live on island. 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

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.

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.

INCREDIBLE WEEK IN PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
We have 6 kids ages 4 to 18, and we all had a wonderful time at the Coquina Beach Cottage. Our favorite was the beautiful,private garden. We ate lunch every day in what our kids named the "secret garden". The hot tub was a common hang out when we weren't in the ocean, and mornings in the hammock were like a slice of paradise. It felt like our own private, tropical island. Proximity to the beach was perfect. We set up the Tommy Bahama umbrellas that were provided and walked back and forth throughout each day from the beach to the cottage for snacks and meals. Truly a vacation where we returned relaxed, recharged, and anxious to return.

Owner's Response: The most amazing reviews are written for Coquina Cottage and such kind guests are very much appreciated. Our Coquina Gardens on the beach seem to inspire creativity. We've had poems written about the cottage and several different little nooks have gained names by so many guests. Two of our sitting areas have been named the north and south grottos respectively. Still another is now the secret garden. Artists love Coquina and often say various r elements served as their muse for paintings and clay sculptures and other compositions. Our own prized art collection has been occasionally supplemented by various paintings and molded clay objécts de art left by visiting artists and families.

OUR SECRET GARDEN...

  • 5 of 5
Coquina Cottage is nestled in a cocoon of luscious tropical plants that create an amazingly private retreat! We love it here! This is our second visit and we have already booked our next stay. I enjoy painting watercolors and the inspiration of the landscape here and the beach keep me engaged for hours. Riding bikes along the bike path is a daily ritual for us. The beach is beautiful, especially first thing in the morning with a cup of coffee. Wonderful restaurants are within walking distance, but it's hard to leave when you have access to so many beautiful spots to sit and dine right here while watching the sunset. The cottage is very clean and comfortable and the owners and staff are generously hospitable and kind. Thanks for everything…we look forward to our return!

AMAZING HONEYMOON

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I came here for our honeymoon and couldn't of been happier. It was in such a beautiful almost private beach house. The house its self and the back yard is very private. You can hear people next-door but can't see them. The actually beach part is not very populate, you don't see many people in your area. I love the feel of the beach house and am so happy we went with this and not a hotel. We didn't want to leave! I am hoping we will have the time and money to come back - if so we would love to rent this place again. This location is perfect for groups, friends, family, pets, and even romantic getaways. I absolutely loved the house, the view, the beach, and the ocean. It was wonderful.

Owner's Response: With a full tropical acre on the nicest Captiva beach and over 100 ft. Of gulf-front, we are not surprised when honeymooners fall in love with this cottage.
Set right at the gateway of the Captiva "estate zone" Coquina Cottage affords more privacy than most other Captiva properties. Usually called the "gold coast" and at times, the " platinum mile", this cottage is located in a private exclusive area. A rare find for Captiva's "gold coast," this very affordable cottage is unique.
Coquina cottage is a smaller accommodation with a huge and unmatched view of the ocean, gardens and sunset. Two private spaces of air conditioned comfort, within one cottage, offers guests budget oriented choices. Choose to have 400 or 800 square feet based on needs and budget. The cottage is almost always rented to a single family, even if we have to leave one studio suite empty.
There are no streets to cross, no beach front neighbors to the South for several hundred yards. And the neighbors to the north are screened out with awesome landscaping.
You'll love the privacy and the gardens even more!

EXQUISITE GARDENS

My husband and I celebrated our 20th anniversary at this romantic cottage. It is right on the beach, the shelling was the best I've ever seen. The views, sunset and lush landscaping were private and tranquil. I cannot wait to come back.

TROPICAL PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
It was our second stay at Coquina Cottage. The location is prime, beautiful ocean views and an acre of trees and plants affords privacy. The cottage was clean, comfortable and well maintained; amenities are bountiful. We were welcomed by Nacho at check in, later by the owner. We highly recommend this property. It's the perfect place! Nearby activities, attractions, shopping and restaurants. What more could one want? We look forward to returning.
