Villa Donax - Captiva Island, FL --- I highly recommend this condo and from what our neighbors said, the Conch is just as nice. This condo is top notch! We quickly discovered that no luxuries were spared in the Donax. It's very roomy with a large flat screen TV. The bedrooms are spacious and the beds and sheets are amazing! The beds slept better than our beds at home. The pool and hot tub are shared by 4 condos; but they are secluded and quiet and very relaxing. This place is very well kept. Our view from the kitchen and living room was the beautiful ocean with private beach. It was so nice to sit on the beach with our friends and not have to share the space with hundreds of strangers. The bay is behind the condo, down a little walking path and it is great for fishing. Oh, I almost forgot....we found awesome shells! We will be back!

We rented the Donax for a week. It was awesome. The decor is very modern and absolutely beautiful. It is obvious that the owners take pride in their investment and it was well worth what we paid. The beds, including sheets, were so comfortable. The private beach was perfect and such a short walk from the front door. We watched the sun rise and set every day and I can't wait to go back. We ate breakfast and lunch in the condo and walked to dinner every night. I enjoyed the walk in the beautiful moonlight every night and the food on the island is so delicious. The ocean was amazing...the water was so clear, I could see my feet and it was as warm as bath water. We saw manatees, sting rays, starfish, sand dollars, fish... I could just go on and on. Thank you!

We rented Captiva Beach Villa, Donax, for a week with 8 family members. It was just awesome. The location was great. It is across the street from the beach, but it was less that 100 yds. to the water from front door and the street was very light on traffic. Also close to town, maybe a half mile?? The beach in town was VERY crowded, so we were so glad that we were staying out of town where we had the beach practically to ourselves. Captiva Beach Villas are on the south side of town, so not too long of a drive to go to restaurants and activities on Sanibel. The unit was decorated extremely nicely and is very large with 3 large bedrooms and small table in the eat-in kitchen and very large table in the dining room. It also has 2 large living areas. The master suite is huge. It is set up with everything you could need inside and out. Captiva Beach Villas consist of only 4 units (2 duplexes) that share the nice sized pool and with the beach so close and the dock for fishing there was generally no one else (or only 1 other family) at the pool when we were. The pool is totally private from other properties with lush, beautiful landscaping surrounding it. You can pull a boat up to the dock, also. The beach has no public parking anywhere close so it is basically private, as this is an area of no big hotels . We never had anyone set up closer that 50 yards to us on the beach, SO nice. The beach is also very shallow for a long way out so it is great for kids. We saw dolphins almost every day and the sunsets were breath takingly beautiful. All in all, I couldn't imagine a more perfect set up than what the Donax and 3 other units at Captiva Beach Villas have to offer! The Donax inside was as nice as the setting outside. Did not see the inside of the other units. I would highly recommend this property!!

Donax was extremely spacious and comfortable for 7 people, we had plenty of room to spread out. The fact that the property was literally across from the beach was wonderful and we could go back and forth easily if we needed something. The pictures and description were very accurate as to what the townhome was really like. I would definitely consider staying at this property again and recommend it to anyone who wanted to be close to the beach. Tonette was extremely helpful and answered my multiple questions over the months leading up to our trip. We easily walked into the village from this property, we walked on the road to the village one day and took the beach back. The shelling is fabulous and we got lost for hours doing so. My only concern would not be for the owners but the cleaning crew that comes through. The kitchen and utensils were worn and dirty as these had not been thoroughly cleaned after recent use. We called Royal Shell to come in and go over the bathroom floor and showers needed some work. The Royal Shell employee told us that the property was due for a more thorough cleaning. When we called them they acted promptly to try to resolve the issues. Overall the experience was wonderful and I would recomend this property to anyone wanting a slightly more upscale roomy experience.

This place was simply by far the best vacation our family has ever taken. I am not one who enjoys crowded places and I was concerned the island would be full of tourists. I was pleasantly surprised. It really felt like our own little piece of paradise. The locals were so friendly and helpful. I most enjoyed dining at the local "pub" The Pink Flamingo. You must have one of their grilled Grouper sandwiches! We were pleased at how well maintained the property was, inside and out. It is modern, but very relaxing and feels like home. The pool and hot tub looked new too. The best part was to step out to the beach within feet of our driveway. We spent a lot of time walking the beach. We also enjoyed visiting the island of Sanibel, just miles from our villa. It seemed like we were definitely on island time while there. I would recommend this place to all! Missouri
