We enjoy eating at the Bubble Room and booking our deep-sea expeditions at Tween Waters. Ask for Jimmy, he is a fantastic guide. You can also book a shelling excursion at Tween WatersJ as well and they can take you to a secluded beach for shelling. While you are here for your visit, take a drive to the Sanibel Marina and take the Sanibel Thriller ride. It's a high speed pontoon boat that takes you around to see the sights of both Sanibel and Captiva Islands. Have your cameras ready to snap photos of the dophins that come and play in the waves of the boat. I can't forget the manatees and the sea turtles too! The Shell Museum is a must see with all the wonderful kinds of shells found throughout the world. They will send your kids on a hunt to find certain shells, once they have completed their search, they will be rewarded by the hostess! The night life on Andi Rossi lane is great. Great food, fun, and atmosphere and don't forget to include a sunset stroll on the beach!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

Why the Owner Chose Captiva Island:
We vacationed in Captiva before and fell in love with the overall ease and simplicity to the Island. When we came back a second time, we knew we wanted to buy and share the opportunity that we have so enjoyed.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The simplicity and ease of Captiva is worth noting. Everything is within walking distance, if you're not into walking, there are bike rentals avaialble as well. When you go to the beach, all activities are available within a short walk. We have enjoyed nightly walks on the beach watching the sun dip beneath the depths of the ocean followed by ice cream cones at La-Tee-Da's. The marine life is amazing to say the least We have experienced how mollusks move, to seeing big crabs in conch shells, dolphins, stingrays, jellyfish, and even manatees. Where else can you go in the lower 50 states and encounter all this wonderful marine life in one day!
