White Caps Cottages cottage description

The Lazy Hideaway Cottage is a beautifully restored original island bay front cottage at Blind Pass, where Sanibel and Captiva Islands meet.

This charming area is known to the locals as 'Santiva', and you'll enjoy walking miles of beaches, fishing off of your dock, the shore or the Blind Pass bridge. You can walk to 3 popular restaurants and the Santiva General Store.

Blind Pass is famous for its world-class fishing and SHELLING! The sunsets are legendary, and there is no shortage of dolphins, manatees, Great White or Blue Herons, ospreys, pelicans, Bald Eagles that like to visit in the back yard of the Lazy Hideaway.


About our cottage...

We restored this cottage (and its 2 sister cottages, the Little Palm and Bamboo Breeze) in 2004 and enjoy sharing it with other families that have an appreciation for the Olde Florida Lifestyle.

Lazy Hideaway has bamboo floors throughout, plantation shutters, island-style furnishings, central air conditioning (and heat), ceiling fans, a washer/dryer, dishwasher, fully-equipped kitchen, 3 flat panel tvs, surround sound dvd system, wi-fi and outdoor grill.

The living room has a Queen sleeper, loveseat, surfboard lamp and fantastic views of the bay and boat dock.

The kitchen has a small sand dollar motif breakfast table and chairs, a full-size stove, microwave, refrigerator and dishwasher. There is a small bar with 2 stools for a quick meal on the go as well.

The master bedroom has a Queen bed and flat panel tv, dresser and closet, while the guest bedroom has 2 Twin beds, dresser and flat panel tv.

The screened lanai is a perfect spot to store your fishing tackle or shelling finds for the day. You can unwind in the rocker, or enjoy your meals or morning paper here. It's got a beautiful view of the bay!

The back yard has a charcoal grill, picnic table and outside hose for you to rinse your tackle or shells with.

The 2 boat docks have power, a fish cleaning station, and water, so if you have a boat or kayak, bring it! The Gulf of Mexico is less than 200 yards away!

                      Car: Recommended

                      Santiva is where Sanibel and Captiva Islands meet, and the Lazy Hideaway is the perfect spot to fish, swim, kayak, shell and relax.

                      The Lazy Flamingo, Sunset Grill and Santiva General Store are just steps away, so you can enjoy the island's finest foods in the local's favorite restaurants, or grill your catch of the day on the backyard charcoal grill.

                      Walk right across Sanibel Captiva Road and over to the beach, just past our sister cottages (Little Palm and Bamboo Breeze).

                      The Blind Pass Bridge is a favorite fishing spot. Use your cast net to catch your bait for the day, watch the herons, pelicans and sea otters frolic alongside the manatees and dolphins while you fish for your supper.

                      Shellers delight in the abundance of beautiful seashells that are on the shores at Blind Pass. The variety and volume all vary with the tides. Mother Nature rarely fails to deliver beautiful souvenir shells.

                      Other Activities: Shelling! Kayaking, Flats Fishing, Snorkeling, Shore and Dock Fishing, Boating, watching sunsets.

                      Golf: The Dunes and Beachview Country Clubs are located just 10 miles away on Sanibel, and both are Par 72 courses. Open to the public.
