Thank you so very much for one of the best vacations we have ever taken! Everything is so perfect; we can feel the love of the owners. Lee saved the day by delivering a walker for my 85 year old mother, can’t properly express my appreciation. All 9 of us enjoyed every minute in your beautiful home. We hope to return.

Holiday at Tropical Breeze Captiva Florida

  • 5 of 5

We had a great holiday in a fantastic location. The house is amazing, easy access for the beach and in walking distance of retaurants. Excellent not having to use the car if you wanted to eat out.

The house was very clean and very well maintained The main bedrooms are enormous and the surround sound music to all rooms (including outside) brilliant.

We don't normally return to the same location but we so enjoyed our holiday here we have already booked for next year and cant wait to be back at Tropical Breeze.

Wonderful house with amazing access to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at Tropical Breeze and were really impressed with the beauty of the home, the ease of access to the beach, and the superb customer service provided by the owner (Phil and Natalie) and the manager (Lee). We were 6 adults and 3 kids (two three-year olds, and one seven-year old) in our party and we got great use out of the 5 bedrooms, pool area, common areas, and sun deck where we would watch the sunset in the evenings (one evening, we saw a beautiful double rainbow after a light t-storm). The description of the location, layout and amenities were accurate. The property was clean and well-maintained, and had everything you could need including pool toys, beach toys for kids, chairs and umbrellas that you could take to the beach, and even a wheelbarrow for transporting it all. The beach is only 1 minute walk away and is just breathtaking. The owners and managers provided great customer service, everything from e-mails answering my additional questions about the property, showing us around when we arrived, giving us recommendations for a photographer to come take family portraits on the beach, and even sent us back the DVDs that we forgot in the house! We were just so happy with their graciousness and friendliness. It made our stay so much more comfortable, and we really felt relaxed in their home. I would definitely recommend this property to a friend or relative (just don't go when we want to go back ;-)!! While we were there, we enjoyed going to the Shell Museum and the Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge. As for restaurants, we enjoyed the Bubble Room (real hit with the kids!), the Mucky Duck (right on the beach and perfect for lunch), RC Otters (casual restaurant, good for kids) and the Green Flash (good for adults). But the thing we enjoyed the most was going to the beach every day, seeing dolphins while swimming in the early evening (around 6pm), finding sand dollars and hermit crabs in the ocean with our feet, and using the pool to relax and play "Marco, Polo" with the kids!

A wonderfully appointed house close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

The house is very modern, clean and comfortable. Our family of seven had plenty of room and loved the house. We ended up spending most of our time around the pool. The kids loved how there were already beach toys, boogie boards, skim boards, chairs and umbrellas already there. It was nice the house had wifi since our kids are addicted to streaming videos! Proximity to the beach was excellent; only about a one minute walk. Restaurants and bars were within walking distance and the fact that Jerry's delivered groceries to our house was very convenient. Overall, a very beautiful, roomy house that everybody enjoyed. Highly recommended!!!!!!!!!

The Perfect Beach House

  • 5 of 5

There is an expression in that there are three things to look for in real estate: 1) Location, 2) Location and 3) Location. Well, Tropical Breeze has the PERFECT location. It only a few yards from the beach and a short walk to many restaurants.

But the house has so much more. You can play pool, foosball, or ping pong around the beautiful screened in pool. Plus there is a Tiki Bar complete with a wireless speaker that can sync with your music selection.

The kitchen is amazing. It is equipped with anything you need. Plus it has a big table for 10+ people and a center island with even more seats.

All five bedrooms have an attached bathroom. The family room has a theater sized television set and media center complete with a whole house speaker system.

My favorite area was the sundeck. What a great place to be during sunset.

What impressed me is they provide everything you need for the beach....chairs, sun-shade umbrellas, beach toys, cooler, and even the beach wheel barrel to get all of these items easily to the beach. What we liked was the outdoor shower area to rinse the sand off when you come back from the beach.

They provide games, books and just about anything you will ever need at a beach vacation.

They even have a house concierge who welcomes you to the house and gives you a complete overview.

Yes, this is The Perfect Beach House. We are already planning our next family vacation at Tropical Breeze.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This has been the perfect house for our annual week in Captiva with our family. The house and location are perfect. The owners are so thoughtful about all the little extras. Things that would be a hassle...detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, coffee filters etc. are all there. There are laundry facilities on both levels. Every year there are upgrades. The owners and the managers are a pleasure to work with.

Car: not necessary

One factor that ensures that Captiva is exclusive and its beaches never busy is that you are not allowed to park cars on the roads on the island. Parking is only allowed at the few public car parks or in restaurant car parks. A short walk from the house is Captiva village which is a lovely mix of restaurants and shops. At Tropical Breeze you really can park the car and not use it for days on end. Captiva’s unique west facing position off the coast of Florida means that you have all the benefits of the glorious beach and the fun of the sea as well as incredible sunset views. A short walk away on the east coast is the Roosevelt Channel with its inland fishing and boating.

Golf: Golf Digest ranked the Fort Meyers-Cape Coral area in the top twenty best metropolitan areas for golf in the USA.

The closest course to the house is Redfish Point a nine hole course in the South Seas Plantation Resort located at the north tip of Captiva Island.

There are two 18 holes courses a short distance away on Sanibel Island, the Beachview Golf Club and the Dunes Golf Club.

Notes:
Captiva Island is unlike any other holiday destination in Florida, it has the feel of a tropical island. It is only 5 miles long and up to ½ mile wide, it is unique and unlike any other area in the USA. Over 80% of the Islands’ (Sanibel & Captiva) are a nature reserve, including the world renowned J.N Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge. There are no traffic lights, bill boards or street lights. No building is allowed to be higher than the tallest trees. The speed limit on the island range from 15 to 35mph, a single lane road runs the length of the island. Captiva has a tropical year round warm climate and lush tropical vegetation, wild life is in abundance with Ospreys, Eagles, Pelicans and numerous sea birds, as well as Dolphins and Manatees. Tropical Breeze is located just 2 houses from the beach in Wightman Lane which is in Captiva Village. Captiva’s beaches have been voted in the top 5 in the USA.
