Idyllic vacation spot

  • 5 of 5
No reason to spend hours on the Internet researching the perfect destination - we simply returned to Chateau Blanc. What more could anyone want - a pristine, nearly deserted beach 20 steps out the door (I didn't count them this year) or a crystal clear, heated pool 20 steps in the other direction. Chateau Blanc is clean, spacious and comfortable with plenty of kitchen tools for whenever you might like to cook in. And there are great pool floats for the eight year old in you.
Pick up provisions at Jerry's Market on Sanibel right on the way to the house and enjoy breakfast and lunch on the screened porch watching the ocean, the boats and the paddle boarders go by.
There might be dark sky rules for the nesting turtles so at night there are thousands more stars than what we see from the city and it is so very quiet both day and night.
Captiva and Sanibel cover the full spectrum of restaurants - whatever you feel like having you will find close by. I hate to shop and have no time for it but it is quite enjoyable - between all of the mini shopping centers on both Captiva and Sanibel you can find everything from the requisite tee shirts to Roberto Coin at Congress Jewelers - so go shop and enjoy!
Ella and her family are all so nice and so helpful - and thank you for the aloe leaves from across the street and yes! aloe does really work on sunburn.
Thank you Ella - we had another great vacation and we are looking at dates for next year. See you soon!

A Piece of Paradise in Captiva

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I chose Chateau Blanc because it had everything we were looking for: Beachfront, Private Pool and Pet Friendly. The location is perfect, the views are incredible, the pool is private and relaxing and the interior is very stylishly decorated with beautiful artwork in every room. We enjoyed the house so much we decided to get take out or cook most nights because there was no better sunset view than what we had there. We had a masseuse come to the house and give us massages on the screened in porch and had sounds of the beach nearby. We did yoga there every morning too. Ella is wonderfully accommodating easy to deal with. We will definitely go back to Chateau Blanc.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful vacation week at Chateau Blanc. Ella has a beautiful home and made sure we had everything we needed. It was so convenient, not to mention the amazing views, to have the beach be right out the getting in the car and driving to the beach, it was a 15 second walk to the beach.

We enjoyed relaxing on the beach and searching for shells, swimming in the private pool, and trying out several restaurants in Captiva and Sanibel. For two days we rented a boat from Jensen's and went to Cayo Costa and Cabbage Key.

Thank you Ella for sharing your home and we hope to return someday.

Paradise Found - Cannot Wait to Return

  • 5 of 5
We have rented through VRBO from Palm Beach to Marco but Chateau Blanc on Captiva is by far the best of all worlds with sunsets that compete with the likes of St. Bart's. The pristine beach is steps from the house and nearly deserted with miles to walk in the powdery sand. The fenced-in pool is crystal clear, heated and always has some shade around the nice deck. The house is so comfortable, with great views of the ocean from almost every room including the screened-in porch, is well stocked and we felt right at home immediately. We shopped for breakfast and lunch at Jerry's and ate in, enjoying the great views of the ocean, and we had tons of restaurants to choose from for dinner. Traveling with our 12 lb. dog and restaurants with patios are pet friendly so she always joined us for dinner (chicken fingers on the kids' menu were delicious!). There is so much to do on Captiva and Sanibel we did not leave the islands in two weeks - and yes, Ella, there IS a green flash!

Owner's Response: There is truly much to do on the Islands just sitting and admiring the beautiful wildlife , the gorgeous sunsets, collecting shells, fishing, etc. I agree, why would you want to leave?
