Private Paradise

by Viki C.
This property is one of a kind! The saltwater pool was amazing morning, noon and night! It was sooooo much better (for your body) than traditional ones. The house was just as nice and was so inviting and thoughtfully “stocked” - it felt like being home. We honestly can not think of one negative thing to say or think about this cottage! We would highly recommend this little private paradise to anyone looking to have an amazing vacation - we both returned home so well rested and ready to return to “normal” life!

October In Captiva

We enjoyed our stay. The house and property were great. The pool was nice on the hot days and the short walk to the beach across the street was not an issue. The beach was fantastic. This house was perfect for our vacation and would definitely stay there again.

Perfect for us!

by Jolene S.
Loved the pool. Beach access was just across the road and down one property. Very short walk. Spent most of our time at the pool - shaded yet sunny. Beds were very comfortable and the rest of the house was great. Kitchen was well stocked. Restaurants were just a quick car ride away. Walking trail on Sanibel was just over the bridge - we used it every day. I would definitely stay here again!

Beautiful private property!

Great property allowing dogs. Fenced yard with fenced pool. Perfect for swimming and relaxing on the baja shelf (shallow area of pool that has chairs and umbrella). Separate apartment downstairs (perfect for rigging fishing rods). Owner was wonderful, checked on our stay, but stayed out of our hair.

Nice house with a great pool

by Heather G.
We really liked the house and the proximity to the beach. We spent our mornings at the beach and afternoons at the pool. It was really nice to get away for a week. The only recommendation I would make is to have a refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker in the downstairs room. We had to fill a cooler with ice everyday to keep our water cold in order to not disturb those in the upper level for our early morning runs. The only complaint I have is the issue we had with millipedes coming in. We had all the windows and doors locked tight, and they still came in all day every day. I don’t know what could be done about that, but it was a nuisance. Other than, we really enjoyed our stay. We had everything we needed for the beach and pool. The kitchen was stocked with plenty of dinnerware, cookware, and glasses. We definitely are keeping it in mind for future vacations.

Wonderful Family Vacation

by Matt D.
We've been to Captiva several times and this cottage checked off all the boxes for our family of four. Very clean home with comfortable beds. Pool is wonderful and probably the best we've seen in Captiva. We spent most of our time at the pool just relaxing. Beach is a very short walk and house comes with a wagon with chairs, umbrella, etc......pretty much everything you need. The house is located on the Southside of the island which is less crowded, so often times you felt like you had the beach to yourself. Owners live just down the road and we met them walking the beach many mornings. Very friendly and willing to provide suggestions or recommendations for whatever you need. We look forward to our next trip to Captiva and staying at this cottage.

Most relaxing trip we’ve been on

by Makiah M.
The Captiva Cottage was perfect for our family. As a mom, I worry about the kids (1&3) knowing the boundaries in a new place. This place eased all my worries...the gate at the pool, the driveway gate, the entire property fenced in, the lock at the top of the door, the screened in porch with no way to get out or in. We felt safe and slept well knowing our kids weren’t getting out. The private pool made the trip. Unfortunately we experienced red tide and bad rip tides that kept us from getting in the ocean, but the cottage, the proximity to the beach, the entire island was amazing. We ate at amazing restaurants and enjoyed the lush vegetation and island vibe. Our only suggestion/complaint is that the master bedroom bed was squeaky. Overall, an amazing experience. We will be back.

We loved the property and locale. Highly recommended !!!

by Robert F.
The rental house and locale, if anything, exceeded both our expectations and the posted description. The house was immaculately clean and a joy to experience. The outdoor pool received considerable use, as well as the shaded gathering area next to it. The property as a whole is surrounded by dense foliage and is set back from the road, reinforcing a feeling of distinct privacy and separation from the busyness of day to day life. As represented, the beach is just a short walk away, through a privately deeded (for rental customers) walk way. Walking the beach every morning was an excellent way to start the day. Restaurants and galleries are close by, but far enough to not be intrusive. The property Owner was very responsive to any questions and very pleasant. Upon returning to Captiva, I would definitely prioritize trying to stay at the exact same location.

Beautiful secluded property, close to everything!

by Mistie S.
Had a girls shelling vacation here in October of this year, this property is wonderful, very clean, everything you need. Contemporary furnishings and the homeowners artwork throughout the home was amazing. Well stocked kitchen with everything you need! Margarethe and Rene were very kind and easy to communicate with, gave us great recommendations on restaurants in the area and activities. The home is in walking distance to Blind Pass, Turner Beach so it's easy to come and go. Plenty of room for the 4 of us, could easily sleep more. Loved the screened in porch - we loved sitting there and examining our shells of the day! This home is very secluded, you feel like you are in your own tropical oasis - and the beautiful heated pool is a nice refreshing way to end the day. Would definitely recommend this place - its amazing! A big thank you to Margarethe and Rene!

Amazing Vacation

by jack s.
We absolutely loved not just the amenities of the house, but the personality. The pictures online don't tell the whole story. So relaxing, quaint with an old Florida feel, and private with everything modern you might need for a perfect beach vacation. Beds were comfortable, the kitchen was well-equipped, outdoor grill, screened in porch, poolside gazebo and an easy walk to a beach that might as well be private for the few people we encountered the entire week we stayed. Well-stocked with beach and pool "toys," games, books, puzzles and some children's toys, this gem is great for families. We had four older teens with us and the downstairs area was perfect to give them (and us!) space. We saw amazing wildlife--plenty of dophins, sting rays, fish of all sorts, manatee and a variety of birds, including an eagle fishing! Shelling goes without saying, as millions of shells litter the beach. We will definitely be back next year!

We had a wonderful week at the Captiva Cottage. The owners are very accommodating and knowledgeable. Rene helped me with some fishing recommendations. The house was very clean and had anything you would need. It also has plenty of beach accessories like chairs, umbrellas, buckets, and pool toys. Access to the beach is great. You basically have a private path with a couple minute walk to the beach. The pool was very nice and the bald eagle nest was a bonus. Can’t go wrong staying here if you want a private house next to the beach. If you like to fish, blind pass is minutes away and we caught fish from the beach daily on fly rods.

Wonderful time in Captiva!

by sue p.
My family of five stayed at the Captiva Cottage the week after Christmas. It was our first visit to the Sanibel/Captiva area and we were very excited. The cottage was a great place to stay. The beach is right across the street and had hardly anyone on it the entire time! Was able to bring our dogs on the beach to play without feeling like we were bothering anyone. The village is a short drive away with great restaurants..parking was difficult at times, but think maybe that was because it was the holidays. There were two grocery stores on Sanibel within a short drive, Jerry's and Baileys. They were great and not too over priced at all as i had anticipated. We rented a stand up paddle board one afternoon, and went on a two hour fishing trip another evening…had a blast both days. The cottage itself is super cute, and clean. The screened porch was great for morning coffee and the evening glass of wine! The pool was beautiful too…the weather turned a little cooler for us by mid week so we did not use it as much as we would have liked, but when the kids did go in they loved it. Definitely would recommend this property to anyone especially if you enjoy a nice quiet beach. Staying closer to town would eliminate the need to drive as much, but the beach there was more crowded.

by Caren S.
Bob and I have enjoyed our month here in Captiva Cottage. It is hard to leave to go back to the icy cold of Wisconsin! The new pool has been wonderful! Our grandkids especially enjoyed the fountain and the shallow end. We love having a fenced yard and all the privacy that the cottage gives us. The beach has been incredible...most days we have had it to ourselves. Every day it is different and it is always fun to see what it will be like. Most days we have seen dolphins. Piper, our Golden Retriever, has been Queen of the beach! She just wants to swim and retrieve any kind of ball and is quite good at riding the waves. I think she has developed a following! We have enjoyed the Ding Darling immensely and have made a daily trip there. We've seen endangered Wood Storks, the legendary lady crocodile,an alligator and so many gorgeous birds. Some of them such as the Blue Herons, Snowy Egret and Great Egrets we have at home in the summer. We kayaked in Tarpon Bay which was so neat. We also went fishing with a guide for Redfish. We came home and prepared them for dinner. It was wonderful! Your perfect location enabled us easy access to many fantastic restaurants both on Captiva and in Sanibel. Our favorites include Over Easy Cafe for breakfasts, picking up take home lunches at Sweet Treats Gourmet and dinners at The Timbers, Doc Fords and Sunshine Seafood. Captiva Cottage is very clean and well maintained. It was our perfect Island home for a month!

Captiva Vacation

The listing accurately described the cottage and location. The cottage, pool and property was well maintained. We spent so much time in the water - at the beach and the pool. My husband, son and grandson were approached by manatees. The manatees actually laid at their feet. We saw dolphins playing one afternoon. What a pleasant surprise! And yet another surprise was the lack of crowds on the beaches. We gathered shells and saw many gorgeous sunsets. We ate at the Hungry Herron and would recommend it highly for families. You can't go wrong with a menu that has 200+ items when you have party that includes 2 teenagers. The girls in our family shopped to our hearts content in Sanibel and Captiva. We will definitely book this property again. It worked really well for our family.

Paradise Found! (Lake Villa, Il)

by Adonna P.
We had the best vacation in South Florida. Captiva Cottage was everything we wanted and more. Turning in the driveway (which you have to slow down for our you will miss it) you enter a beautiful, tropical, and very private oasis. The pool is warm and inviting with awesome Patio Furniture and Tiki torches. We spent every morning having coffee by the pool. Having the fenced in yard was great for Jaeger. The beach was beautiful and practically empty so we had a lot of room to play ball with our dog and take him for long walks without being leashed. Our Hostess was great. She answered all of our questions and if we had a problem (only one small one) she was right there to take care of it. I can't say enought and we were so happy with our stay that we left our deposit to confirm our vacation for next year.

Great Location!!!!!

We stayed at Captiva Cottage on May 7th - May 14 2011 and loved the house and location. Very private yet had very easy access to the beach/ocean. Even though this property is not directly on the beach we never felt like we missed anything. The pool was great especially after being in the sun all day in 90+ degrees. The house had everything we needed and loved the wagon that was provided to take chairs, umbrellas etc. to the beach. We normally like to go to different places on vacation each year but we may make an exception and return to Captiva Cottage very soon. Friends who came to visit have already asked us to pass on the informaiton on the house. Thanks for a wonderful week of fun and relaxation.

I cannot say enough good things about Captiva Cottage! I have been back 10 days from my holiday there and I just want to go back! I stayed at the cottage with my husband and 10 years old daughter. We were very impressed with the 'extras' that we found e.g Beach towels, a trolley to take everything to the beach, washing up liquid etc etc...... The pool was a good size with plenty of space to swim lengths in. Great location, with a 5 minute walk to a beautiful quiet beach. Captiva is a tropical paradise, it is a wonderful place to recharge your batteries and everyone is so nice!! I would definately recommend Captiva Cottage and I can't wait to go back!

Our Wonderful "First" Captiva Vacation

by 50ZAHRWWBbThrTPhTUPNaN5vn/IGbD/kwBsjtBKY0XpQaWKE0He/404NRzmleA7S 5.
This was our first visit to Captiva Island, and since we began planning this trip back in October 2010, we were very excited and anxious about this vacation when July rolled around. In short, we had an excellent week long vacation stay at this wonderful cottage! Everything that is advertised regarding the Captiva Cottage is exceptionally accurate to a fault. The cottage is located just off of Captiva Drive in a beautiful tropical setting that gives you a wonderful sense of privacy. The private pool is wonderful, and is stocked with an abundance of towels, chairs, lounge chairs, and all of the pool toys and rafts that you could want for adults, teenagers, or small children. The short 200-yard straight shot to the beach across the street was also a big plus. Most of the time we had the beach all to ourselves, and the cottage offered a more than adequate number of beach chairs, along with a convenient wagon to take them down to the beach in. Inside the cottage, the kitchen was well stocked for those that might want to prepare a big meal for a big family. There was plenty of cookware, serving bowls and platters, utensils, plates, bowls, etc. and we easily preapred several meals for a family of 6 during our stay. The very large screened porch just off of the living area and master bedroom (complete with 2 ceiling fans), provided a very nice place to spend evenings and early mornings. The location of the Captiva Cottage was excellent, as we were only 5 - 10 minutes from Sanibel activities and the Captiva village. This cottage is an excellent place to stay if you want privacy with proximity to everything on the island, and we highly recommend it to anyone planning a short or extended stay on Captiva Island! We're already planning our next visit!
Thank you for your review! I like to chime in: the highpoint of the day is often a walk to the beach and even after almost 20 years of living here it still strikes me how beautiful and deserted the beach is.

Captiva Cottage

by charlotte j.
I have always wanted to take a beach vacation with my three girls, and this year, even though they are now adults, my wish came true. We traveled to Captiva with our daughters, one son-in-law, and our 2 year old grand son. We stayed at the Captiva Cottage the first week of February 2012. It couldn't have been more perfect - from the location, to the pool, to the house itself, we loved everything about our stay. There is an eagle's nest above the pool that you can watch from there or the screened in porch of the house. We enjoyed watching the eagles bringing home their meals, or chasing off unwanted seagulls. The screened in porch was perfect for morning breakfast. The pool area was wonderful to enjoy the sun - either in the water, or just sitting at the edge. The beach and Captiva's world-renowned shells are literally just across the street. We enjoyed hours of walking the beaches looking for the perfect shell. It was very convenient having a full kitchen to enjoy home-cooked meals instead of having to eat out every day (though we enjoy trying a few of the restaurants on the island - the Key Lime Bistro is a must!). My grandson was very appreciative of the kids' room and all the toys that were available to keep him entertained. If you are considering a trip to Captiva, you should definitely consider a stay at Captiva Cottage!

Perfect Stay on Captiva

by Jason H.
My wife and I recently stayed at Captiva Cottage and I can't say enough good things about this property.The listing description was accurate and the photo's of the property gave a true picture of the home. The home was clean and inviting upon arrival and the the home was very well maintained. I would certainly recommend this property to friends and family and it would be my first choice on our next visit to Captiva. Our 13 year old Cocker Spaniel loved the fenced in property. The beach was paradise, it truly was like having a private beach, the shelling was terrific. The pool was also perfect. We also loved the screened in porch as a spot to enjoy in the late afternoon. We had great dinners at the Green Flash and some very good lunches at The Lazy Flamingo.

A Complete Experience

My wife and I spent a wonderful week at the Captiva Cottage in late-March of 2013. This facility was perfect for the two of us. The cottage is replete with both practical and indulgent amenities: a warm, comfortable interior, clean facilities, good electronics and a well-designed and -equipped kitchen for those of us who still relish cooking for ourselves. The recreational opportunities, both Gulf beach and private pool, are handy and romantic. Shopping and good dining are convenient; in some cases, just a short walk away."Wheels" are 'de rigeur' and you will quickly learn the choreography of driving in Sanibel traffic, but there is no inconvenience that can taint a vacation at Captiva Cottage.

Excellent cottage and property!

We had the pleasure of staying at the Captiva Cottage over Christmas 2013, and enjoyed the privacy of the property very much. There was nowhere in the house or pool/ yard area where another house could be seen! And the road was even barely visible from the pool! The beach was a very short walk, and there were complimentary beach umbrellas and and chairs with a wagon to pull them to the beach. The kitchen was well stocked (pots, utensils, tupperware), we did lots of cooking and never wished for anything. One of the highlights of our stay was the bald eagle couple that lives out near the pool! We saw them out and about every day, chirping and swooping around with their fish, they were delightful neighbors! We had a repair (dishwasher) while we were there, and felt Margerethe handled it very well, with plenty of notice, and came to check on it after. The drive to Captiva is a little long, but we thought it was well worth it for the laid-back feel of the island compared to Sanibel. Thank you for a such a relaxing environment Margerethe, we are definitely considering coming back!

Private Paradise!

by Jeanette R.
We had the most wonderful stay at this little piece of Paradise! How wonderful it was to be able to have our own, warm private pool, and then to be able to take a short walk to enjoy the beautiful, private beach and ocean! And our little dog was able to enjoy our vacation with us. The property is like having your own little tropical bungalow. We enjoyed the screened in porch for morning coffee, and evening cocktails. Since the cottage is upstairs, it felt like we were living in a tree house. Not a person or another house in view. We rented bikes and rode into town which was such a beautiful ride. The restaurants are fabulous; The Mad Hatter, Green Flash, and Mucky Duck and everything is so casual. Very relaxing. Margarethe was a pleasure to rent from, and we hope to return someday.. So many memories were made! Thank you for sharing your beautiful property.

A fantastic home for family vacation!!

by Laura M.
We just returned from a week at the wonderful home and everything was fantastic!! The house is just as pictured/described on the listing. The house was very clean. The bedrooms were spacious and the linens were clean. I love that each bedroom had their own bathroom. The room downstairs was perfect and allowed for some privacy if traveling with extended family. The pool was wonderful. We loved the added touch of the shallow spa and the tiki umbrella if anyone needed some shade. The cabana was so nice. The wagon and beach chairs were perfect and made the short walk to the beach easy. The beach is fantastic! Tons of great shells and beautiful sand. We enjoyed the fantastic sunset on the beach every night. We can't wait for a return trip to this house next March! I

Wonderful place to stay in ideal location!

by Natasha J.
I just wanted to thank you for making our stay on Captiva so enjoyable. We really enjoyed staying at Captiva Cottage. Captiva Cottage was the perfect size, and had everything we needed during our stay. The location has a private feeling, but is close to the beach, and other amenities. We really enjoyed the screened in porch and nice pool area. It was also wonderful to have all the beach gear we needed, already there! My mom and dad celebrated their 35th wedding anniversary, by renewing their vows at sunset one evening, during our stay. There was no one else on the beach, we had it all to ourselves, and the ceremony was beautiful!

A splendid vacation spot with fantastic hosts.

by David L.
I hesitate to rave about this lovely rental for fear that it will undermine our ease of ever renting it again! This seclusive spot is ideal for those wanting privacy in the form of their own pool and beach, yet being only minutes away from great eateries/bars. It is quite simply a beautiful property...well worth the money. When we revisit Captiva, this will be the place we stay without a doubt. Thanks again, Margarethe!
Thank you, David, for a very nice review! Looking forward to have Andrea and you come back!!

Wonderful Captiva Christmas

by Kenan S.
My family and I enjoyed the Christmas week 2014 at this quaint little cottage. You have great privacy and a wonderful heated pool to enjoy. The weather was fantastic and the shelling was great. The location is great between the two islands and we enjoyed the wildlife on the island including the nesting Bald Eagles. Margarethe was a wonderful hostess and very responsive to our needs. This is one of the islands best kept secrets.

Tranquil, Beautiful, Private

by kenneth r.
The property is surrounded on all sides by lush vegetation so we were in our own private world. The pool is beautiful and sunny and extremely private. We could have left our bathing suits home! The Gulf is right across the street down your own private lane. Because this cottage is in an area of large private mansions, the beach is very uncrowded. Inside, the cottage is brand new, comfortable, and very well equipped. There is a downstairs suite with a separate entrance so our guests also had total privacy. A short drive down Captiva Drive takes you to all the great restaurants and shops on Captiva or pick up a steak and some Grouper at Bailey's and grill them in your back yard. Yes! Those are Bald Eagles nesting over your pool!

Great Place to Stay -- For Couple or Family

by Rosanne W.
Captiva Cottage is cozy enough for two yet can easily accommodate a family or group of friends. Wonderfully located, it is private, quiet but within easy reach of the attractions of both Captiva and Sanibel. We loved eating on the enclosed deck, swimming in the heated pool, walking on the beach -- just a short, easy access path away. The kitchen couldn't have been better equipped, and the house was spotless. The owners made some fine recommendations for restaurants and came by to help us set up our wi-fi. And let's not forget the resident eagles nesting high above in a tree near the pool. A great place for your Captiva/Sanibel visit.

Awesome

by Barbara H.
We had an amazing time in this Captiva Cottage. We were 6 adults and there was plenty of space for all of us. Happy hour everyday at the very private pool with shade for those who wanted it and sun for others. Sunset on the beach just minutes away (across the street) was a nice evening adventure, what can I say about the shells except WOW! They might say Sanibel is the sea shell capital but I don't think shelling can get much better than here at Captiva. Our favorite restaraunt is Mucky Duck just a couple of miles away, A real plus door us was the screened in lanai. Great place to play board games in the evening. I have already booked for next year. Thanks Margarethe for making the cottage so special.

One of our favorite vacations ever!

by Emma K.
This was one of the best equipped rental homes we have ever stayed in; from the kitchen, to the cleaning supplies, to the extra fencing for the dog. Loved the split level house so that the human child and the canine child could have separate spaces. Comfortable beds, easily cleanable furniture (again human and canine child). The pool is wonderful. There is plenty of common space inside and out and plenty of places to go be by yourself too. And the beach is perfect. Most of the time we had it to ourselves. We had an absolutely fantastic time at this home and the fell in love with the island. We will be back, year after year.

The Perfect spot for our first trip to Captiva + Sanibel

This was our first trip to the islands, and we really enjoyed the week. My kids loved the heated, private pool, and basically lived in it all week. The beach is just across the street. My wife and I went for a walk, and at a certain point I looked up and pleasantly realized we basically had a private beach. Well, we did share it with the dolphins just offshore.

Another great week on Captiva

by Brendan B.
We have rented another property from this owner just down the road in years past so this was our first year in this house. The house is well appointed, clean, easy to cook in (great spice shelf and heavy duty cookware). It met all our expectations and exceeded them in the pool and the access to such a private beach! Of note, which was not an issue to us at all, but the 3rd bedroom in this house is downstairs and can only be accessed from the exterior of the building (ie, there are no internal stairs to the first floor bedroom).

Privacy Plus

by Barbara P.
Very nice private property. 1 acre of lush tropical landscaping which created a beautiful private pool area. Pool was great with a covered patio area for shade and ample seating. Only disappointment was that beach replenishment was in process and our access was restricted but the property owner did their best to accommodate us with alternative access points from their other properties. Even still, not an ideal beach situation because of the heavy equipment and noise. Wish we would have known in advance. House was well equipped and clean and we were very happy the property was pet-friendly. All in all a very nice property & location. Owner was very accommodating and responsive.

Private oasis!

by Makiah M.
This is our second time staying at Captiva Cottage. The private property and pool are our favorite aspects of this property. A short walk to the beach is nice, too! Our only complaint would be the squeaky master bed frame and hard mattress. We’re also tall people, and the shower heads are low. We did not fit in the showers. On the days it rained, we sat on the screened in patio and read and relaxed. I have two children, 4&6, and this is a child safe property with the completely gated lot, gate at entrance, and gate around the pool. One of the most relaxing trips we’ve ever had!!

2 Week Stay

by Carolyn S.
Beautiful, lush and private property. The house was comfortable and well stocked with everything that you need in the kitchen and for the beach. There was plenty of room in the upstairs and downstairs living areas for our family of 6 adults and our dog to hang out. The large screened in porch was great and the salt water pool, with its covered seating area, was fantastic! We spent most of our time at the pool and on the screened porch. We loved having the option of spending time at the beach, which was never crowded, and only a short walk across the street from the house, and then being able to swim and relax at the pool. If you are like us and don’t like crowds and love nature, you will love this property. It’s just a short drive into Captiva or Sanibel for dining, shopping, and exploring when you do want to socialize. Margarethe was a pleasure to work with, always responsive, and made the check in, check out process very easy.

The Cottage on Captiva

by John A.
We loved our stay. The owners were easy to work with, the property has been recently renovated and the beach supplies provided were abundant. We loved how quiet the location was, especially the beach. During the busy summer months, we felt like we had the beach to ourselves. Note that the third bedroom is not connected to the rest of the home, but is a separate unit on the main level. Our oldest teenager was to sleep there, but then she decided it was too scary to be away from the family, so we squeezed our 3 kids onto the two twins in the second bedroom. It won't keep us from returning though. We can't wait to go back!

Great home away from home

by jen r.
House had exactly the rooms and beds we needed. My parents stayed downstairs in the very roomy studio that has a bistro set, sofa, coffee table, tv, chairs, private full bathroom and queen bed. Only thing it doesn’t have downstairs is a kitchen. A mini fridge would be a great addition for the downstairs guests. Cold AC and separate entrance from the first floor that isn’t accessed through the main house, but worked fine for us. The main house upstairs has an open floor plan, updated kitchen and floors with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The Master bedroom has walk in closet, tv and private bathroom. Bathrooms are fairly dated, but clean and fully functional for a vacation stay. Large washer and drier set and grill were great bonuses. The pool area is phenomenal. It’s a very short walk to the beach (cross the street and one house down there’s an access path) Private wooded home was very peaceful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and for the price, you don’t find better in Captiva.

Perfect Private Beach Vacation

The private pool and super short walk to the beach made this the perfect, private beach location. Captiva in summer did not disappoint - lots of shells to collect, fish to catch, and wildlife to see. We love being in such a natural and less developed beach. The beach crowds were low, and being alone in the house is a much better experience than being one of many at a resort. We have two requirements when we rent a house on Captiva - private pool and easy beach access. This clearly met both. The house was just the right size for our small group, and it was priced fairly. We hope there's availability the next time we return to Captiva with just our family. We totally enjoyed the stay.

Lovely place with just a few issues.

by Christy R.
The place was nicely tucked away by vegetation. Everything was spacious and supplied well. The pool was refreshing and an excellent place to relax after a day of fun. The upstairs screened porch was enjoyable since some of us are prone to mosquito bites. The outdoor shower/rinse station was a good touch. Everything worked except there were a few light bulbs out. The house had a handful of spiders and ants, for which was creepy for one of us who has an immense fear of them. The downstairs bedroom/bath is completely separate from the main house upstairs making it difficult when there is a thunderstorm for my parents. Also, there was a strange smell downstairs. The biggest complaint is the A/C temperature. The thermostat doesn't let you go below 74 degrees. And for us Texans, we hate to sweat at night. The daytime hours were fine, but considering August is the hottest month of the year for Florida with the extreme humidity, the nights were uncomfortable, to say the least. Good stay with Great Adventures!!! The island, people, and their lifestyles were wonderful and rejuvenating.

Wonderful property

by Charles E.
Captiva Cottage is a lovely beach house--nice enough to feel very much at home but not so luxurious as to worry about tracking in sand and little bits of shell from the island life. The property includes the house that has been updated over the years. Prior improvements have been maintained in good shape, including the great pool, and more recent updates still look and feel new. The property surrounding the house is lush and beautiful. All of this plus the convenience of being across the street from the beach and around the corner (so to speak) from three nice little restaurants for those who prefer not to venture far from the house. Finally, the pleasant owner of the property is readily available by phone or text. We will return.

We had a fantastic time at the Captiva Cottage. Great layout for our group of 6, plenty of common area spaces but also room for everyone to have their own space. We loved watching the eagles nest from the pool and enjoyed listening to them from the screened in porch where we ate many of our meals. We even had the pleasure of a bobcat encounter one morning. Total privacy at this property which was especially nice during these times. Easy walk to beach and the beach cart (and all the beach toys) provided made the trek even easier for all. This was our first trip to Captiva and we loved the laid back, undeveloped nature of the area. We were able to not leave Captiva or Sanibel for the 2 weeks, finding all necessary supplies at either of the smaller close by general stores (one on Captiva, one just across the bridge to Sanibel) or a little longer drive to Jerry’s grocery on Sanibel. We hope to return soon and will highly recommend to all.

Very easy walk to the beach. I loved that we could use the wagon to take everything down. The beach was very private too. We were often only one of two families there. Got to see dolphins, manatees, and even saw baby turtles make their walk into the sea. 🙂 Best family vacation we have every had!
