Manatee Cove is the perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

We just spent the last week at Manatee Cove. The house is spacious and comfortable. We had 9 people staying in the house plus a dog. The main living area is a great place to gather. The master bedroom and bath are wonderfully updated. The two other bedrooms and bathrooms on the main floor are smaller but work just fine. The three kids enjoyed the downstairs where there is a comfortable living area and two bedrooms with twin beds in each. Lots of space. The pool area is great, and we spent many hours sitting by the pool, lounging on the deck that overlooks the water, and fishing off of the dock. We also rented a boat for a few days. The house is secluded, and it's a short walk to the beach where we had the beach to ourselves. It's just a short drive to the village. The property manager was also wonderful and accessible while we were there. We ran out of propane, and he was quick to replace it. This was my first time using vrbo, and I was so impressed with the owners and how they answered my emails promptly. When I asked about if there was a wagon to take items to the beach, the owner said, "Not yet, but there will be one by the time you get there." They made it so easy. I would definitely rent Manatee Cove again.

Great house, great location

  • 4 of 5

House has all the conveniences you need for a great vacation! Great layout for keeping everyone together or having space to get away from the group. We had an issue with the AC but owner was very responsive and resolved the issue. Bring bug spray, no screen enclosure on the deck.

This property was stunning. We had everything we needed and more.

  • 5 of 5

The house was cool and clean and the location could not have been better. We spent most of our days on the secluded beach and the pool was a welcome entertainment for our children. We ate in on a few occasions and their was plenty of utensils for this and we ate out several times in Sanibel. We loved everything about our stay and would definitely come back again when returning to Captiva. One point to mention, we could not find a dustpan and brush?? As this was a beach location it would have been good to sweep up the sand from the entrances etc but we could not find one. Other than this... Perfection!

Great time on Captiva Island!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at this fabulous house on Captiva. Wildlife right out the back door, gorgeous beach just a short walk away and a lovely swimming pool all to ourselves. Very private and we would stay there again. Lovely home with plenty of room for everybody. Thanks!

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family just finished a week stay at Manatee Cove and it was everything we were looking for. There was plenty of space between the upstairs and downstairs living area for 8 adults, which came in handy since it rained the first 3 days of our vacation. We were able to use the dock for our boat, the pool area was great to use in between rain showers and the beach was only a short walk away via a private path. The house is only a short drive to some great restaurants and shopping as well. We look forward to coming back again next year!
