Enjoyed every minute

Chateau Blanc is a wonderful relaxing place to stay on beautiful Captiva Island. Ella is a great host and strives to make your stay enjoyable. The home is Clean, comfortable and as advertised; the sunsets on the beach are spectacular. If you are a fisherman like me, fishing off the beach or at Blind Pass which is just a short walk down the beach can be an great way to spend your days. The only thing we missed was a gas grill as we enjoy grilling our meals each evening. I'd recommend Chateau Blanc to anyone looking for a relaxing stay on Captiva.

Our third year here and as always it was delightful, great views gulf or fresh water swimming pool, grounds exquisitely manacured, fishing, boating, fishing guides, J N Ding Darling Wildlife Reserve, great locale shopping. Even as year round Florida resident the only thing we enjoy as much are our Ciruises. The is a class operation.

Simply a fantastic vacation destination.

  • 5 of 5

Chateau Blanc was an excellent place to spend a week at the beach. The location is exactly as advertised in the pictures. Sunsets were beautiful and nearby restaurants were the best. Try the Mad Hatter for a superb dining experience. Ella welcomed our dog which made it so much better than boarding her at home. My wife and I sincerely appreciated the week at Chateau Blanc. We will definitely return.

Simply the best

  • 5 of 5

Such a treat to vacation at Chateau Blanc! We are all so lucky Ella is willing to share her piece of paradise with us travelers. We have stayed three times and already signed up for 2017. The house is comfy, clean and comes with anything you need to cook dinner and with an unbeatable ocean view from the deck and screened porch and the living/dining area. The private pool is crystal clear and a nice size. The beach is just steps off the deck and is clean and uncrowded and full of beautiful shells. You are equal distance to dinner on Captiva or dinner on Sanibel with many many great choices. And then there are the sunsets - we do not have anything like those sunsets in the Midwest - be sure to watch for the green flash on clear nights ;). It is one hour from the Fort Meyers airport to Jerry's for groceries then another 20 minutes to Chateau Blanc. Can't beat the convenience. We just love it on Captiva - it is pure joy. Thank you Ella! Claire thoroughly enjoyed her vacation as much as we did!

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Chateau Blanc is the ultimate - beautiful and perfectly located on a very private beach. Ella is lovely and makes sure every single detail is handled with the utmost care. My husband, dog and I truly enjoyed this pristine home right on the beach - we would go out all hours of the day from sunrise to sunset and enjoy incredible shelling and strolling along the beach. I would highly recommend Chateau Blanc to anyone who wants to enjoy their privacy and relaxation - the house has everything you need for a wonderful vacation! We rode our bikes all the way from the house to downtown Sanibel on the perfect bike path, saw alligators and enjoyed fishing at Tarpon Bay. The people on both islands were super friendly - everyone wanted to meet our sweet dog. We dined in wonderful restaurants in Captiva and Sanibel and we were there for the annual Luminary celebration on both islands, which was a real treat. Our favorites are the Island Cow and the Over Easy Cafe' for breakfast (both are very dog friendly!) and we absolutely loved the Green Flash and Cantina Captiva for dinner. Thank you for a wonderful trip! Carolyn, Russell and Livvy (our dog) Bishop

This home was the perfect get away from snowy Michigan for our family of 4. Every day, we enjoyed morning and evening strolls along the beach, searching for perfect shells and rescuing live whelk and sea urchins which had washed ashore. The location of Chateau Blanc is the best we can imagine, close enough to Sanibel for easy shopping and exploring Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge but just far enough away to feel like the beach belongs to you. We enjoyed fishing from the shore, photographing copious shore birds, and building superb sand sculptures. Every afternoon we retreated to the shade of the beautiful pool area. Thank you Ella & family for making our stay so enjoyable!
