Beautifully decorated and newly updated, this condo had everything we needed. It was so tastefully decorated. Very modern and amazingly clean--which I am very picky about. It was cozy, relaxing and had plenty of room for our family of four. We like to cook our own meals and we had everything we needed in the kitchen. Another plus was having our own washer and dryer. No need to pack so much as we could wash any clothes we needed. This was great with two little kids, I didn't have to hound them to stay clean:) Our kids had their own room and bathroom. They loved waking up and being able to stay in bed to watch cartoons on their own TV. We loved waking up and being able to hear and see the ocean from our bed, as well as having our own private bathroom. The condo was the PERFECT location! So close to the beach and pool. We loved having use of all of the beach chairs, towels and toys. We literally spent hours on the beach! It was so convenient and close. Great with small kids as it was simple enough to run back to the condo for a snack or bathroom break. Being able to have a private hose to rinse feet was great too. We were able to keep everything in the lanai and keep the condo clean. I am very big on cleanliness and this condo was above and beyond my expectations! We also enjoyed the lanai. It was so nice to be able to keep the doors open and hear the ocean. The lanai was also a great place to relax with a glass of wine after the kids went to bed. The pool was amazingly clean and close by. The beach and private access were another plus. The area of the beach was not crowded at all, which was great for privacy and shelling. We loved that we could walk to the Mucky Duck for a drink and watch the sunset. We had an amazing time and accomplished exactly what we wanted--a relaxing beach vacation with ocean views, a pool, a beach, quiet location and privacy. We definitely plan on returning to Captiva and most definitely this condo! Jane, the owner, was so easy to work with, especially since our visit was so last minute. She was prompt in her responses and very friendly. She also helped with restaurant suggestions which was a huge help! The condo was exactly as it was described and the photos depict the beauty of this great condo. We have all of our friends and family interested in now:) Captiva and this condo most definitely made this one of our top vacations! Thanks Jane for sharing your beautiful condo! It is a gem!
