Side by Side Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at Side-by-Side on Captiva. We've been coming down to Sanibel/Captiva for the past 10 years, so we have stayed in a lot of different properties on the islands. Side-by-Side was by far our best experience. We loved the house and the secluded location. We have 3 young kids, and the house was more than roomy enough for all of us. We definitely plan to stay there again next year. Thanks for a wonderful trip!!

Great place for large/extended families

  • 4 of 5
My family went to Captiva for Thanksgiving and had a great time. We rented both the main and guest house - 3 adults and 2 kids in the main house, and 2 adults in the guest house. Both were clean, comfortable, and had amazing views of the ocean. We had everything we could have needed for cooking Thanksgiving dinner, and had a wonderful time in the ocean (a little chilly) and the pool (great because it was heated :) The properties are located just over the bridge to Captiva, about a 20 minute drive once you cross onto Sanibel (Depending on traffic) which was great - not too far, but far enough that we didn't get much traffic. We were also close to many great Captiva restaurants (Mucky Duck, Bubble Room, etc). All in all, a great place to spend some QT with the family. Ella (the contact for the rental) was available and helpful (we had an issue with the cable - turned out to be our fault, but she was very responsive and assisted us in figuring out and fixing the problem). I would have rated our stay 5 stars except for the handing of our deposit... We placed a several hundred dollar deposit for the two houses, paid to hold them and as a security/damage deposit - after our stay, we inquired about the deposits and were told it would be 4-6 weeks due to the cycle of the phone bill and the owner wanting to make sure there weren't long distance charges. After 6 weeks we inquired again and were told that there had been some personal issues for the owner which had delayed our deposit return (seems a little bit of a stretch - how much time does it take to write a check and put it in the mail?) - we finally received our money back January 27th, a full 8 weeks after we checked out. I understand the need to hold a deposit until the rental property is checked out, but that seemed like an excessively long time to hold a several hundred dollar deposit. We did receive the full amount back, but it took way too long in my opinion. In this day and age, I would rather not have long distance available (everyone uses cell phones anyway) and get my deposit back in 2-4 weeks. Other than this little complaint, everything else was perfect!!!

A Very Special Place....

  • 5 of 5
Captiva Island is a very special island where you can choose to be active or reflective or a little of both and to our family, Side by Side is our special place! The home is well-kept and well-stocked and the owners maintain it since they use it when in town. We like it so much that we usually only go out once for dinner. The layout is perfect for our family of 7. There is ample space for the boys to watch sports while the girls do crafts or play board games. In fact, the owners keep an armoire full of puzzles and games for those rainy days. The location is perfect with the beach just steps away and having a pool on property is great when the kids need a change of venue to play. One of the assets of the home is that if there are any questions, they have a very nice neighbor that is extremely helpful and kind. The description/amenities plus photos are all up to date on the website and accurately portray the house. We will continue to rent this house as it has become a family tradition and the kids look forward to it every year.

A Blissful Stay at Side-by-Side

  • 5 of 5
Never having rented a vacation home before, we felt like we had hit the jackpot when we arrived at Side-by-Side.
Very private and surrounded by lush foliage, the home itself is warm and welcoming and perfectly designed for our group of 6: My husband and I, our son and his wife, and our daughter, son-in-law and their two little ones.
Photos of Side-by-Side don’t do it justice. Two spacious and comfortable living areas are separated by glass sliding doors, allowing the early rising children to play noisily while others slept in. There is just the right amount of colorful and thoughtful décor, making one feel like they are in their own home and we found all the amenities we could want (including two flat screen TVs and Wifi).
All three bedrooms were extremely comfortable, and the Master Suite not only had a walk-in closet but also its own private deck.

The kitchen in Side-by-Side is outfitted with ample cookware and its layout is perfect for several cooks to move about at the same time. We enjoyed shopping for groceries at the large Bailey’s general store and alternated dining in with dining out at the local hotspots: Doc Fords (our favorite!), Mucky Duck, Lazy Flamingo, Cheeburger-Cheeburger.

Our family loved both the heated pool, and the beach, which is only footsteps away. Beach towels and beach lounge chairs are provided...plus an outdoor shower for rinsing off!
We rarely saw more than dozen people at any one time on the beach. Some were shell seekers, while others sunned, surfed on boards or with sails. We even spied a frolicking dolphin!

We found Side-by-Side to be very conveniently located. It is only a short drive to the end of Captiva for brunch or to rent bikes or assorted water sport items. Kids can even get pulled on "banana boat" rides. Some in our group had a blast renting wave-runners.
Seeing the throngs of vacationers crowded onto one small beach, at the end of Captiva, made us particularly grateful for the private location we had chosen...especially as we enjoyed the magnificent sunsets.

Make sure to explore the Ding Darling Preserve while you are there, and kids will love the spectacular Castle Mini Golf in nearby Fort Myers.

Our stay at Side-by-Side could not have been more blissful. On our next visit we hope to bring along more family members and rent the additional cottage.

Thanks, Ella, for making our stay so enjoyable and easy!

Great location, lovely house!

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed here the first week of April. Great location! Close to downtown Captiva and downtown Sanibel. It's also close to Captiva jetty where the good shelling is. Totally uncrowded beach. We basically had it to ourselves all week. Lovely sunsets, lots of wildlife. We loved having the pool to retreat to as well. We had 6 of us: 3 kids, us, an my mom. Lots of space for everyone. My mom had her own room and my oldest slept on the pull-out sofa, 2 little ones in the second room next to the master. The master suite is just lovely! The house is large, with two living areas and a nice large, well stocked kitchen. Lovely porch and nice poolside area. Great vacation all around. Highly recommend!
