              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1998

              About the owner: We fell in love with Captiva after a short visit to the gulf coast in 1998. We had just build a vacation home in Breckenridge, Colorado but after finding Captiva we decided that we love the warm weather and the beautiful beach more more than the cold. We quickly sold the mountain property and purchased our lovely Life's a Beach cottage located in the heart of the island. We have never regretted buying the cottage and love to spend as much time as possible in Captiva. This island is a wonderful place and the beaches and sunsets magnificent. We are sure you will fall in love with Captiva and Life's a Beach too.

              Why the Owner Chose Captiva Island:
              Captiva is the most beautiful tropical island in the US

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              The one thing all our quests comment on is that they feel like they have left reality and stress behind and truly felt like living in paradise for a while. Leave all your worries on the mainland and enjoy our beautiful island and our relaxing cottage.
