The Captiva Vacation Condominium is your personal home base in the middle of one of the finest world-class resorts on earth. Nothing quite compares to having your own private beachfront condominium getaway in an exclusive resort. It is the best of both worlds: Privacy, convenience, outstanding amenities and plenty of room to comfortably accommodate up to 7 people.
(Editor's Note: This is for all the people who ask even after reading this. THIS IS A BEACHFRONT CONDO. THIS CONDO IS ON THE BEACH.)
Your Captiva Condominium getaway is not jammed into the back of a maze of tiki-taki cottages. Captiva's legendary white beaches are just a few feet away. And there is no end to the possibilities. Swimming, boating, kayaking, even a day cruise on a luxury yacht are all within easy reach.
Your waterfront view of the Gulf of Mexico is spectacular. Captiva's beach is front and center for sunset, every single night. The views you will see from your vacation condominium are unparalleled photographic masterpieces.
Stay indoors, stroll along the pier, explore the breakwall, or just stroll into town. But be sure to get out on the water — the out-islands are just a short boat ride away, and sailing, fishing, shelling, parasailing and kayaking are all available.
Captiva Island is joined to Sanibel Island, beloved for its beautiful white-sand beaches, an abundance of seashells and the huge variety of wildlife that calls this Gulf coast island home. Long a vacation haven for families as well as romantics, Sanibel Island offers the slow pace of island life with just enough fabulous amenities to make it unparalleled.
The 'Ding' Darling Wildlife Refuge on nearby Sanibel Island is probably the most well known wildlife destination in the area. Captiva is visited by hundreds of bird species, some nesting on the shoreline. Protected birds like Plovers have been spotted nesting in North Captiva.
Other birds include Bald Eagles, Osprey, Terns of many varieties, Roseate Spoonbills, Wood Storks, Kingfishers, Black Oystercatchers, Skimmers, Brown Pelican, White Pelican, Great Blue Herons and many more.
Manatees can also be found in these waters. In fact, Pine Island Sound is a traditional stomping ground for Florida's manatees. Manatees spend most of their time feeding and resting. They graze for food along rivers, coastal bottoms and the water's surface. Manatees have been known to hold their breath for as long as 20 minutes, but usually surface every five minutes to breathe.
Friendly dolphins abound in the seas surrounding Captiva. They regularly swim right up to the docks. A Dolphin Watch and Wildlife Cruise is the perfect family outing. There is nothing more exciting than to see these beautiful marine mammals jump in the boat's wake. Visit secluded Florida state park beaches that are only accessible by boat. Most tours feature food, drinks, even live music.
