Sandpiper Villa - My Favorite Place in the World

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had another wonderful stay at Sandpiper Villa on Captiva Island. The house is beautiful with many modern updates. What we enjoy most about this location is the quick access to everything (beach, Jensen's Marina across the road, Captiva Restaurants right around the corner.) There's no reason to get in a car once you're there. Both the weather and the fishing did not disappoint. This truly is my favorite place on earth.

great access to the beach, tennis courts and pool

  • 3 of 5

We are a three generation family on spring break. We thought the house was over priced due to the fact that it is situated right on the main road, has only one TV for the whole family, and the master bathroom needs a major update.

On the other hand, the porch was lovely for relaxing and dining and the kitchen, which also need an update, was well equipped. We enjoyed our stay because of the access to the beach, tennis, pool and fishing.

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.

We loved walking to the beach and the pool every day. The location was perfect. A block from all the great restaurants. Everyone in the family was very pleased. The house was great!

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
