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.

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!!

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!

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from another fantastic week in this beach cottage. Our weather was absolutely perfect..mid 70's and sunny all week. We enjoyed beautiful sunsets every night. Had a great time having rented a golf cart this year. What a fun, great way to see the resort and island. We really enjoyed driving to Red Fish Pass and around the end of the resort. Saw a couple manatees, many dolphins and pelicans. So much fun in the evenings listening to music and eating at Doc Fords, Mucky Duck, and Key Lime Bistro.

The beach cottage was as clean and comfortable as it is each time we visit. We highly recommend this property, again!

A Trip to Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, our first trip to the Beach Cottage-what a place! EVERYTHING provided that you could possibly need! The decor are furnishings are just perfect and the cottage is extremely clean. The screened lanai view is breathtaking and the beach is just steps away. There are awesome beach chairs, coolers, beach towels and numerous other beach accessories that made the stay even more relaxing and convenient! The beach is the best around-wildlife abounds-more birds than we can name, numerous dolphins everyday, fishermen in boats casting nets right in front of us! Walking on this beach is the best! Great restaurants and entertainment are a short walk or drive away. (We highly recommend Bubble Room's Orange Crunch Cake, Doc Ford's Beach Bread, and Mucky Duck's Clam Chowder and Seafood Platter:)

What a fantastic place, highly recommended and we hope to be back in the future!
