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 location and wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic holiday at Manatee Cove April 2017. The house feels very homely and is tastefully and comfortably furnished and equipped - including beach wagon and cooler. Plenty of space for our family group (4 adults and 2 kids) and there were 2 unused bedrooms and extra kitchen/lounge. You effectively have a private beach if you follow the private path as there is no parking and the beach was pretty much empty on our stretch each day we went. Beach is good for shelling and swimming. Pool is large and dock is great for watching wildlife / fishing - we saw dolphin, manatee and variety of birds. House is quiet day/night. Short drive to restaurants in Captiva or Sanibel. Idyllic location, will go for longer next time! Owners helpful, friendly and easy to deal with.

Best holiday Ever.

  • 5 of 5

The house was fantastic, well decorated , comfortable and a truly beautiful location. Alex the caretaker was so attentive. We hired a boat and docked it at the house , how neat is that. The beach across the road was awesome. I'll be back.

Delightful respite. Quiet. Surrounded by birds, dolphins, fish!

  • 5 of 5

Spacious. Sprawling. Great for extended family. Accommodated our two westies. Rented kayaks and paddled down to Buck Key to the trail through the mangroves. Awesome view of yellow crown night herons up close. Walked to beach through access right across the street. Good shelling. Set the DVR for March Madness! Cooked shrimp and scallops in the spacious upstairs kitchen and the whole family could gather at the table. Periodic drives through Ding Darling Refuge on Sanibel at dusk. Saw the same two dolphins off the dock day after day. Neighbor caught sheepshead from his dock. Pool is warm and comfortable. Grilled chicken and burgers poolside for lunch. This welcoming home is a great launching pad for family memories.

During March buy bug repellent. Pool is not screened. Some sliding doors stick. Push front door to lock/unlock with code. Use hose in side yard on left of house to clean sand off feet before re entering. Pool floats stored in closet at poolside. Property manager Alex is local and helpful. AC is better in some bedrooms than others and invariably some family members will say it's hot while others are cold. Outside temps in mid March were in the low 70's! I'm not complaining.

Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The house is in perfect location. It is quite and very relaxing. This beautiful home is nicely design and very comfortable. Attention to detail is great. The pool and fishing dock are great place to hang out all day. Beach is only short walk down the driveway.

The Captiva village is short car or bike ride.

Thank you sharing your beatiful home with us.
