Holiday Season 2016...because the holidays fall on the weekends, we are taking Tuesday to Tuesday reservations for Christmas week. We have 10 days available, December 17th to the 27th. We will take a 10 day or 7 day reservation.

Enjoy our beautiful, two bedroom, Gulf-front beach cottage in the world famous South Seas Resort on Captiva Island. Our cottage offers breathtaking views of the Gulf of Mexico.

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

A queen size sofa sleeper is located in the living room. Our laundry room has a full size washer and dryer. The new 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.

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

Our cottage is on the first floor with a magnificent view and entrances on both the pool and Gulf sides of the cottage.

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Every aspect of our experience was well above expectations. The after-hours check-in process was seamless and easy to navigate. The folks at the South Seas Resort could not have been more friendly, from the time we went through the gate and each time thereafter, they even remembered our name! The beach cottage was absolutely perfect for our family of 5. Your decorations, supplies, beach provisions, cookware were all spot on. We all commented favorably about your attention to detail in regards to the décor and cleanliness of the cottage. The location was superb. Easy to get to Doc Fords, the Starbucks, Provisions and Captiva restaurants and a short walk to the north end.

Please accept our sincere thank you and we very much would be interested in making it an annual event as much as possible!

Amazing beach stay!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay! From the moment we walked thru the front door, it felt like home! The cottage was beautifully decorated, very comfortable, and extremely clean. It had everything we needed for a comfortable week at the beach, which was just a short walk away. Our family of five fell in love with Captiva! The water was so incredibly warm, and we saw dolphins from the beach every single day. Truly an amazing experience and stay!

What a sweet spot! Our family of four spent a great week on Captiva. We all enjoyed the warm waters of the pool, playing on the beach, looking for shells, and the abundant wildlife. What a delight to walk down the short beach path and see dolphins swimming and osprey and pelicans diving for fish. The property itself was clean, quiet, comfortable, and nicely decorated. Thanks to the owners for making it all so easy!

Lovely stay at a wonderful cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time visiting Captiva Island and staying at this cottage with my family. Coming from Canada, it was a great escape from the bone chilling January weather. This cottage was a great choice for my young family. The cottage itself was exactly as described in the listing and pictures. Check in was quick and easy. It is in excellent condition and the cottage was spotless when we arrived. Pride in ownership is shown throughout. Beach access is only steps away. On one of the days, we saw dolphins playing from shore, which was a first for us and quite exciting to see. Doc Ford's restaurant is only a 10 minute walk away. We ate there 4 times during our stay! We had our fair share of oysters and stone crab, which were amazing! I must make a point to thank Lynn, the owner. Her communication was excellent prior to and during our stay. She answered all of our questions quickly and was so pleasurable to deal with. Thank you so much! We hope to return again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review. You have been so nice to work with. We are very happy that you loved our cottage and Captiva. We also share your love of Doc Ford's. We were on Captiva the week prior to your stay and also ate there numerous times, even got to meet Randy Wayne White eating his dinner at the bar. He graciously signed books for us. Please come back. We have many annual guests and would love to have you return.
