WOW doesn't even start to describe our stay

  • 5 of 5

The beach cottage is roomy, bright and comfy! And there were enough supplies to last the entire week. My favorite was sitting on the lanai and watching the birds - we were visited by doves, osprey, blue heron and great horned owl. The beach was huge and very private. Hope to return next year.

Our time at the cottage was highly enjoyable. The cottage is steps from the beach which is gorgeous especially at sunset. The resort is private and perfect for early morning bike rides. The pool is very welcoming in the warm afternoon. The cottage has everything necessary to get along. Everyone on Captiva was super friendly including a local grocer who lent us his pliers (crab crackers) Anne and Dave were friendly and super helpful throughout the whole process. We would highly recommend the Beach Cottage and Anne and Dave to anyone considering a stay on Captiva.

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful time! We fell in love with the beach cottage which was extremely well-appointed, comfortable, and clean. The kitchen had everything we needed, and the beds were so comfortable with lovely, soft sheets. The beach was spectacular and felt mostly private; we loved being so close it. Our two children (ages 6 and 9) had never been to a sandy beach before, and they had a ball body surfing, making sand castles, and collecting some of the most beautiful shells we have ever seen. They both told us that it had been the "best vacation, ever"! Strong words coming from our children! We saw some of the most beautiful sunsets every evening, and what an indulgence for us Canadians to wake up to the sound of the surf...our week passed far too quickly and everyone was very sad to leave this slice of paradise. We hope to return again next year. We also want to mention what a pleasure it was to work with Anne and Dave. They were so helpful and quick to respond to our queries (thanks again for the tip about Bailey's delivery, it made our life so much easier the evening of our arrival, and they make the best chocolate chip cookies!!).

Perfect Place on the (Private) Beach

  • 5 of 5

I have only two regrets about our stay in this attractive cottage: 1. That the week passed much too quickly and 2. That I have been unable to write a review until now. This rental is all that the description says. It was not only immaculate, it was exceptionally attractive and comfortable. And it was well organized; we truly had everything we needed. The kitchen was well stocked with cookware, dinnerware and glassware. The bathrooms had more than enough towels. Beach towels and chairs were also provided. The mattresses and pillows were also excellent. With two bedrooms and two baths, this lodging is perfect for two couples, a family of four or two singles who want some privacy at the end of the day. Best of all, the location is fantastic. Just a short walk down the sand path and -- there it is, the ocean. Finally, the owners were prompt and generous with their responses to our many questions. We hope to stay here again when we return to Captiva.

Wonderful vacation cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 1st family vacation to Captiva South Seas. We loved our stay! The beach cottage was very comfortable and clean. We loved being so close to the beach and pool with our young boys. Dave was great to work with. We look forward to another stay!
