Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths,Sleeps 4A/4C 12 and under

Tropical SPECIAL!! Rent one studio suite, get 75% off the 2nd of 2 studio suites on this romantic cottage with gorgeous landscaped, full tropical on beach acre. Available all year, sale on FALL dates. Call now, or email us. This ever popular and conveniently located cottage had great privacy, amazing views and just steps to the actual ocean. No streets to cross, we are right not the beach! Yes, our charming Coquina Cottage sits right ON its own Captiva private BEACH, located at the start of Captiva's desirable Gold Coast. The romantic and private old Florida style cottage has two private studio suites set within the one Cottage building and beautiful private beach gardens.

The cottage is surrounded by a full acre of the most beautiful TROPICAL beach GARDENS, coconut grove and ever blooming variety of tropical plants... only a few steps and you're in the Gulf of Mexico - with all the beach and sun you can soak in and NO streets to cross. There is no property closer to the gulf waters, with as much privacy and convenience.

The SUNSETS are awesome, the endless views phenomenal, LAZY DAYS on the beach so easy ... and life is beautiful.

Our Coquina Cottage is pleasingly comfortable, some guests call it 'shabby chic' and we are very accommodating. Our staff service level has been called 5 star by so many guests! The cottage has two separate COZY studio suites (upstairs and downstairs) with each 400 sq.ft. under A/C. Both sleep up to two adults and two kids with a queen size bed and a queen size sleeper sofa, the upper studio sleeps 3 kids under 12 & 2 adults.

But you won't want to be inside, as our beautiful acre of beach garden with its large sea grape canopy invites you to all kinds of OUTDOOR activities. Read a good book in the HAMMOCK, explore the Gulf of Mexico, enjoy your dinner at our sandy dining room in the shade, or just gaze at the evening stars in our big elevated private SPA. Lighting leads the way for a nighttime beach walk or a MOONLIGHT swim.

If shelling, body surfing, fishing, and sunbathing is too tame for your memory book, take a short walk to Sanibel's Santiva Village or drive to Captiva's PICTURESQUE historical village with rental boats, kayaks, sightseeing & shelling charters, sport fishing, parasailing, jet skiing, restaurants, shops and more.

Sanibel's famous Ding Darling National WILDLIFE Refuge is only a 10 minutes drive south; you pass it on the way here.

Our Coquina Cottage offers a unique and very romantic setting. The UPPER SUITE is elevated a single flight of stairs with the most beautiful UNOBSTRUCTED VIEWs of the Gulf, beach and gardens. It has higher ceilings, an additional 200 sq.ft. of elevated deck and a small breakfast kitchen with a BBQ on the deck.

The LOWER SUITE has a large kitchen, full laundry and a large ground level deck. This suite is wheelchair accessible.

Packing for Coquina Cottage is EASY, as we provide for our guests: iron, ironing board, hairdryer, high quality bedding, bath linens, beach towels, a starter kit with dishwasher soap, dish sponge and soap, paper towels, trash bags, toilet paper, bar soap, shampoo and conditioner. We aim to go ABOVE AND BEYOND expectations, and continuous improvement is our mantra.

Experience Coquina Cottage and find out why our guests come again and again...

Our RELAXING GETAWAY is about a 45 minute drive from Fort Myer's Southwest Regional International Airport, a 1 hour drive from Naples, and 2 hours from Tampa, Fort Lauderdale and Miami.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The week went by too fast! My husband and I stayed in the upper suite and my parents stayed below. Everything we needed was provided to us and we enjoyed almost all of our meals out on the patio together. The dolphins swam by on many occasions. We loved the birds at Ding Darling and all of the friendly people on the island. My aunt and uncle came to visit us on two evenings, and we stayed outside and played the ukulele and sang songs while we relaxed and chatted. Everyday we were amazed at a different beautiful sunset. On Sunday night, we made a pile of snacks and watched the Super Bowl up here, that was a treat. We enjoyed the hot tub, the hammock and the seashell hunting nets, but most of all relaxing with the view and the warm weather. We head back to snow and subzero temps today- but I wish I could bottle this place up and take it with me.

Perfect little home away from home with beach

  • 5 of 5
I have to say that I was very impressed with Coquina Cottage. You truly can't appreciate all it has to offer until you are actually there. The accommodations were perfect, just enough room and nicely decorated. They have most of what you need in the kitchen. The best part was the close distance to the ocean. It was almost like having your own private beach. We loved it and will come back again very soon!

Owner's Response: This cottage had two lovely suites, separately locked out and usually not rented to two separate families. Generally, we rent one or both suites and if you take the second one, we discount 75% off the cost of the second suite. There is actually a private beach on the Coquina Property, as it is almost a full acre. Just seaward of the property limit is the gulf, literally steps from the property line. So well landscaped, the neighbors to the north are well hidden behind our tropical gardens and to the south, the only neighbors are ospreys and shore birds.

Relaxing Vacation

My husband and I recently stayed at the Coquina Cottages. We loved the close proximity to the beach, we enjoyed walking along the beach with our 2 pets and collecting seashells. The sunsets were amazing. We look forward to returning next year!

Owner's Response: Right on the beach and steps to the Gulf. Amazing Old Florida cottage is great for families, lovers, honeymooners and even small weddings. Shellers love this place as it is so close to water and BlindPass jetty. Sunsets are awesome and truly represent the icing on the case.

Birthday celebration

  • 5 of 5
I booked the cottage to have a beautiful, relaxing place to celebrate my birthday. Coquina Cottage was everything I hoped for. The views were spectacular. I was surrounded by beautiful landscaped grounds and everything I needed was there in the cottage. I have absolutely no hesitation recommended this place for anyone who wants to experience a little bit of paradise.

On beech, Close to Gulf, shelling great, gardens-wow. Smallish, but great for 2-4 adults in each suite or 4 and 4 kids.

Charming, clean, per friendly, but not aware of prior pets. Artistic. .. I could go on, and on. But, I must comment on next sunsets and tropical gardens fur a private residence. And, a real bargain for on back. .. really on beach. They Take care and the service, etc. reflects that. Shabby chic rules for real. And honeymooners rule!

Owner's Response: Our guests love being right on the beach and surrounded by our tropical gardens. The magnificent views of the Gulf waters and its close proximity are what this cottage and one acre property is all about. We filled the cottage and landscape with beautiful sculptures, mosaics, art pieces and lovingly planted an artful landscape that is always in flower. In just never dawned on us how attractive that would be to professional and budding artists; we just wanted it to be beautiful. The property talks to us and we simply listen. One recent artistic guest told us the property acted as her muse. The six senses were touched by the beauty and art surroundings. She and her husband touched the velvety softness of certain plants and leaves; the smell of gardenias, the smell of jasmine and many other scents were inspiring; the various fruits that are available at certain times appealed to the tastes, the sounds of surf, birds, crickets, etc. were music to them and lastly, the views from sunup to sundown, the water, the sun, the animals the surf, etc. All six senses are intoxicated with the grandeur of this special spot on the beach. Our artist's husband gave us the idea and added, " Coquina Cottage appealed to his sense of economy and love." The affordable price and the private cozy atmosphere hit the bell in both areas. We love our guests; and love that they keep on coming back. Thanks friends, we love to see your creativity. :)

Absolutely Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Coquina Cottage was perfect. We stayed for our honeymoon. The cabin was just what we expected and more. The seclusion provided at Coquina cottage is more than any other beachfront on the Gulf side. Most of the plants were blooming during our stay and the smell was heavenly. We saw lots of wildlife..birds, dolphins, manatees, lots of fish and crabs, and of course the anoles. We brought our jet skis and took many trips both into Pine Island Sound and the Gulf coast and observed breathtaking views of landscape and wildlife from north Captiva and many small sandbars and islands throughout. We collected many shells, tried some fishing and exploring (Ding Darling was excellent), and grilled some of our catch on the lovely gas stove. We loved the outdoor shower, which was secluded enough to shower fully by way of Coquinas beautiful vegetation. There was ample parking for our truck and dual jet ski trailer. The marina was within walking distance and the employees were very helpful. Everywhere we went people were friendly, and almost everything is within walking distance. We met Mike on the way out, congratulations on your new arrival Mike, and we had a lovely chat and he sent us with a few plants to take home and pot. We loved the island life here and can't wait to return. Thank you everyone!
