traveler reviews for this captiva island house rental

A wonderful month spent at Captiva Cottage!

Review submitted: February 22, 2010   Date of arrival: December 5, 2009

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! The Cottage has an outdoor shower where we were able to bathe her daily after her time at the beach.
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.
Bob and I so enjoyed our time in Captiva Cottage. It was the 2nd year we stayed and hopefully we will again next year!
Your photos give an accurate look into the house which really has all that one needs for their vacation. It is very clean and well maintained.

Wonderful place to stay in ideal location!

Review submitted: June 18, 2014   Date of arrival: June 1, 2014

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!

Private Paradise!

Review submitted: April 10, 2014   Date of arrival: February 22, 2014

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.
