Adorable comfy cottage with fantastic hosts

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time staying at Shell Cottage. Wonderfully decorated and updated, the cottage had a very "homey" and welcoming feeling upon entering. Pat has made sure the cottage is stocked with everything you need to spend comfortable days at the beach - or for just relaxing at Shell Cottage, hanging out by the pool!

The beach is just a short walk away, but the hosts provide a golf cart that gets you there even quicker, with a designated parking space waiting, I might add! The golf cart not only assists with taking beach essentials to the shore, but it also can be used to explore all other parts of the island. In addition, Pat provides a trailer that easily attaches to the golf cart, so we could use it to help transport the kayaks (also provided) to another part of the island where it's easy to launch them. Therefore, we also got to spend time ON the water, paddling around. And yes, we got lucky and had dolphins swim and splash around our kayaks! It can happen! Definitely something we will never forget! :)

I want to make sure I emphasize how nice it was to work with Pat and her husband. She makes sure to pick you up from the ferry and brings you (and your luggage) to Shell Cottage, where she points things out to help familiarize yourself. Pat also made sure to bring us down to tour the ground level where the heated pool is, as well as a pool house that contains a bathroom for convenience. I particularly appreciated the very nice and modern outdoor shower, which has good water pressure and also offers soap, body wash, etc. for you to use.

Pat was very responsive if we needed anything, and made sure to resolve any issues that came up. Pat is just an overall fantastic host, who is willing to go that "extra mile" to ensure you have a stress-free trip.

As a previous review mentioned, for doing laundry, only detergent is available to use. If you are someone who needs fabric softener or dryer sheets, or in fact really plans on doing a lot of laundry, I would advise you to bring your own supplies. That's not a criticism, just a "heads up."

We absolutely loved staying at Shell Cottage - I hope someday to return! Thank you Pat!!!

Shell Cottage - the perfect escape to the shore.

  • 5 of 5

Shell cottage was perfect for our needs! Very well stocked kitchen, great living room space and super comfortable bedrooms. We brought lots of foods and bottled water (the island water is a bit "minerally," so nice for showers but not so great for drinking, cooking). We didn't leave the island for 7 days! So much beautiful beach to walk and the preserve on the north end of the island is a haven for birds. No car sounds was heaven! If you are lucky, as we were, you will get to see and hear the adorable screech owl that is hanging out in the owl box on the front porch. And don't forget to walk the beach at night. The starry sky is an unmatched show! Thanks, Pat (owner) for offering such a great space! (February 2017)

Comfy, Cozy, and Clean!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd visit to North Captiva and found Shell Cottage to be a great choice. We felt comfortable as soon as we walked through the door. Very well equipped, great TV, and super location just a street away from Mango's.

At the end of the street was a private spot and beach access that was perfect for us. Nice pool, beds, furniture, and everything we needed. They even had a trailer for the golf cart which came in handy for hauling the kayak to the beach!

We made a short side trip to Sanibel but we much preferred North Captiva due to easy access to the beautiful beaches. Kayak, swim, fish, and take advantage of the beautiful surroundings.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to next time. Pat was super to work with and we highly recommend Shell Cottage!

Beautiful! Peaceful! Relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful island! The beach house was perfect! Pat was wonderful to work with! The house is completely stocked with everything you could need. We rent a lot of vacation homes while traveling and this was by far the best experience ever! We had manatees swim right by us on the beach and saw numerous Dolphins ! Have recommended to all our family and friends this is a must vacation destination! Only downside the mosquitos were horrible and no amount of repellent seem to help so we were eaten alive trying to swim in the pool or even on the beach in the evenings
