Reviews tell the story. We love hearing from our guests. We have many guests who come every year. Please read our reviews and contact us directly to learn more about us, or our property manager. 314-205-8519

We have offered our beautiful beach cottage for rent for years, using a very reputable property manager located near our property. They handle all our payments, confirmations of bookings, keys, cleaning, maintenance, etc. Payments are made directly to this insured and bonded property manager. You will have their confirmation and contact information as well as our (the Owners)confirmation and direct contact information.

The popular dialog suggesting that you need to pay a fee to a website to guarantee that the property is as described and available is worth questioning. It is important to read the terms and conditions and guarantees.

Our beach front Beach Cottage is constantly updated and beautifully maintained in bright island colors and decor. It includes a full kitchen with Silestone countertops.

The master bedroom has a king size bed and private bath with a walk-in shower. The second bedroom has twin beds and a hall bath with a shower/tub combination. A queen size sofa sleeper is located in the living room. Our laundry room has a full size washer and dryer. The interior island décor is comfortable and casual.

Our cottage is beautifully landscaped and fronts to two and a half miles of beautiful white sand beaches with excellent shelling. The swimming pool and tennis courts are within steps from our door. The Beach Cottages have the closest proximity to the beach of any South Seas Resort property.

We are within walking distance of the front gate of South Seas Resort and many Captiva Island restaurants and shops.

This rental includes the beach cottage amenities: pool, tennis, and beach as shown. It does not include resort amenities. Our cottage is on the first floor with a magnificent view and entrances on both the pool and Gulf sides of the cottage. Gulf side access allows for easy walks to and from the beach with children and convenient storage of beach toys, chairs, etc. There is no road to cross. The beach is accessible by a private sand path for beach cottage guests only (as shown). There are two gas grills located steps from the beach cottage, near the pool.

We use a first class Captiva property management firm for local management of our cottage. Secure payments are made to them once the reservation is made and detailed confirmations/receipts/terms will be provided.

Keys and island information are picked up at our local property manager's location. Emergency maintenance is a phone call away. TRAVEL INSURANCE IS OFFERED.

Fantastic week at beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

We love your beach cottage. This was our second time staying here & wish we could make arrangements for next year...but since hockey rules our lives in Minnesota..we have to figure out our schedules.

We had a wonderful week. The décor in the cottage is perfect. The lanai is outstanding for viewing beautiful sunsets. Many wonderful restaurants are close by. This is a fantastic place.

We hope to be back soon.

Great Week in Captiva

  • 5 of 5

This condo unit was perfect for us. Everything we needed was provided.

The beach chairs and umbrella furnished is a nice touch that we appreciated.

Nice clean unit just steps from the beach.

Beautiful Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from Captiva and loved this beach cottage. It is perfectly located close enough to Captiva Village to walk to all the shops and restaurants. We love the bright decor and how clean the cottage was when we arrived. We watched the sunsets on the porch most nights and found it to be the best view. Loved both the beach and pool. We will be back.

Sunny, Spectacular, return visit!!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVE beach cottage #1407!! Our stay was fantastic! This is our second time staying there and we booked next year before we left! Captiva is so beautiful! We rented bikes, went on a boat ride to Cabbage Key and watched the sunset from the beach every night! Thank you Lynn for sharing your little slice of heaven with us!!

We have many annual guests and are happy to add you to that list. We appreciate our shared love of Captiva and the great TLC you show our beach cottage. Have a great 2017!

Convenient holiday stay at a beach cottage on the gulf!

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful stay with the gulf for your back yard. If you don't fancy the salt water you can walk 50 yards to the pool. This 2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom house is perfect for a smaller family or a close knit group. Additionally, there is a comfortable pull out couch. The location is well situated near town (however we did rent a gulf cart to expedite traveling with toddlers). Walking back to the beach are a plot of trees, plants and vegetation that attracts the local exotic wildlife. Inside, the house has all you would want; kitchen with counter area, small finding table and a lovely lanai to help separate you from the "no see-ums" that frequent the area (spoiler some of those Wiley critters will find their way in....but it won't damper your stay). We loved our stay and the location. My wife and I left and are sure to revisit; maybe buy one day too!
