A little slice of paradise

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location for our multi-generation annual vacation. This house has everything you need - plenty of room, comfortable furnishings - all the beach gear you need including towels, floats and coolers and a wagon to carry them! Our favorite spot is on the screened porch with coffee each morning and cold drinks each night.

Owner's Response: Owner Response: Boat Slip Assignment: The day prior to guests arrival, our dock master did not respond expediently to guests request for a boat slip. We did intervene with a temporary slip assignment with a few hours of being notified. Guests were able to dock their boat upon arrival to our marina. Guest notification at the end of their stay stating the bathroom outlets had not worked all week. This was easily resolved by resetting the breaker switch for the bathroom outlets. No accessibility to the Golf cart: unfortunately the golf cart is not part of the rental property. Liability cannot be purchased for renters use. Several pieces of furniture had been moved by guests to accommodate their level of comfort. Master suite furniture could not be moved by guests because of it's weight, therefore causing an issue for guests. They expressed concerns that the master bedroom furniture was "dated". The master suit is a very expensive, custom built, extremely beautiful and comfortable set and remain. Smart TV: guests had an issue changing channels. They were immediately notified how to reset the "smart" TV. Our communication response time to guests issues is within minutes of notification. All issues are resolved within a few hours barring any unforeseen circumstances. We take pride in providing the utmost in southern hospitality! Sincerely, Mary

Fantastic House - Fantastic Week!

  • 5 of 5

Our first trip ever to Captiva was wonderful, and it all started with the fantastic Sandpiper Beach House! The house is perfectly located in a beautiful neighborhood. Coffee and breakfast on the comfortable lanai was a very relaxing way to start the day. A quick walk to the beach with the wagon full of beach floats, towels and chairs - ALL provided by the gracious owner - made every day a day in paradise. My 2 year-old grandson also enjoyed swimming in the beautiful, heated pool. The house offered plenty of room for privacy and togetherness for our family of 6 plus baby. The decor is so nice - but we never felt uncomfortable having 2 teens and a baby in the house. The beds are SO comfortable with luxury mattresses and linens. Everyone slept great! The state-of-the-art appliances made keeping house easy - the large, efficient washing machine and dryer were a definite bonus! And all the Stainless kitchen appliances and granite counter tops were exceptional as well - plenty of ice in the ice-maker - plenty of room in the refrigerator for 2 families to blend goodies and necessities. The baths were well-appointed with plenty of fluffy towels and large counters for toiletries. Dinner was just a quick stroll up to the main strip with so many restaurant choices - we tried them all and enjoyed them all! We loved dinner outside, listening to live music every night - then walking down to the beach to watch the gorgeous Gulf sunsets. The guys even got in a chartered fishing trip one morning. It was such a relaxing week for all of us - lovely accommodations and everything you want to enjoy within a 5 minute walk. We are definitely planning to return next year! The Sandpiper Beach House provides all you need for a relaxing, memorable vacation!

Best Vacation Rental on Captiva

  • 5 of 5

We had the best vacation ever! The location is perfect, close to the beach, pool, restaurants and shops. The décor was lovely, the living room furniture was super comfortable and so were the beds. Kitchen had everything we needed to cook with. all new appliances. Really enjoyed out morning coffee on the lanai. The beach was private, Gulf warm and crystal clear. All the beach amenities we needed were there such as new beach chairs, towels, umbrellas and pool floats. We didn't have to rent anything!

The owner was so nice to deal with. We will definitely be back for another week!
