Property description

This 2 bedroom plus study Beach Cottage style home decorated with the nautical flare of Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard is sure to delight the most discriminating guest. Located very near the beach in Captiva's Village, breezy porches offer a serene place to relax with a book or dine al fresco. Custom design elements and architectural enhancements add interesting detail in every room.

Spend your days on the beach, then walk to the Mucky Duck for live music, a sunset drink or dinner in Captiva. Rent a boat at the Marina or arrange a guided fishing expedition. Sanibel is just a short drive away, with its shops, restaurants, bike paths and amazing shelling. Enjoy the Ding Darling Wildlife preserve, where you can sea kayak through mangrove islands and view rare birds and other wildlife. Much of Sanibel/Captiva is wild life preserve; this paradise is yours to explore.

Perfect vacation home for active families, reunions of friends, or a weekend getaway. Especially suited to the adult guests, who will appreciate the unique decor and attention to detail. Visitors will enjoy the relaxed pace, and low-key style of Captiva. The soft sands and warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico are less than 1 block away.
