Side by Side Vacation
Great place for large/extended families
A Very Special Place....
A Blissful Stay 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!
