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!...morecollapse

Wonderful family friendly home. Very comfortable, supplied well with towels, and cooking tools. Walking distance to the beach. House and pool were clean, could use minor updates. I would stay again at this house without a doubt.

Wonderful Family Time
Hello – It’s been a hectic first week back in Ecuador, particularly so with our kids having gotten a little sick, but things have calmed down to the point where I can finally say THANK YOU. It was an amazing week and the accommodations were a big reason for that. The kids enjoyed the pool and beach, and we even rented a boat for a day and picking up the family from the dock was a nice treat. My Spanish in-laws were very impressed with the residence, and it’s only a minor miracle that there are more pics of the kids than there are of the house! So thank you again. We truly appreciate it.

Delightful stay in Captiva
Delightful stay in Captiva
We stayed in this beautiful home last week and had a great time. In total we were 8, 2 families of 4 (2 x 4year olds and 2 x 6yr olds). It was a busy time but really relaxing. There were great activities and we didn't have time to do them all so will have to return! The beach was great although a little cold for the kids to swim. The pool was perfect- almost too perfect- the kids never wanted to get out! The fireplace was a really nice later night pass time for the adults. Villa Elena was an excellent combination of comfort, location and amenity. I would definitely recommend the house and Captiva to anyone. We had no complaints and no troubles during our stay.

We had a wonderful time on Captiva Island. The house was wonderful. It was well maintained and the kitchen was stocked with the right amount of kitchen gadgets to make cooking easy. The pool was heated which was an added plus! We rented bikes from Eddy's bike and used them to get around the island for the week. We also bought fresh seafood from Andy's mobile fish market. The crab cakes and grouper were amazing. Thank you for a wonderful week with my family! Beach was beautiful.

Our stay was absolutely wonderful. The house was in quiet location with easy access to the beach and town of Captiva. We rented bikes from Billy's for the week and used them to get around the island. On Tuesday I rode into town and bought fresh grouper and crabcakes from Andy's mobile fish market. They food was delicious! The house was well maintained and the kitchen had all the needed supplies to make cooking easy. The pool was heated which was a unexpected plus! We would definitely recommend this house.

Right at home and peaceful
“From the minute we stepped in the door of Villa Elena, we felt right at home! The home is decorated beautifully and it is very peaceful. We found the home very clean and it had everything we needed for a week on Captiva Island! The wagon for the beach is such a plus, along with the beach chairs and beach umbrella! Thank you for providing this for us. We did bring along our own fold-up cooler to take drinks and snacks to the beach. The town of Captiva was lovely. We had a few meals in town, and also cooked a few meals at Villa Elena. We grilled shrimp One night on the outdoor gas grill. We enjoyed watching the sun set from The Mucky Duck in Captiva and stayed for dinner that evening. We ate breakfast at a few of the restaurants in town, and also enjoyed the mexican restaurant In Captiva. We rented bikes from Yolo’s Bike Shop in Captiva and we rode every day. We even biked to Ding Darling’s Nature Reserve. We only used our rental car twice during the whole week. It was fun to bike every where. Royal Shell Vacation and Cindy, the owner, was very helpful in making our stay wonderful. Thank you again.

Wonderful VacationGuest comment entered by owner
The last 2 weeks at Villa Elena were wonderful. The house was just perfect for us. The open family room was a big hit as we all tend to hang out together. The screened in porch was fantastic and that extra refrigerator was a must for all our cold drinks. My husband, is a wonderful chef so he really used the kitchen and grill. We had gulf shrimp, yellow snapper, grouper, steaks and much more... Everything worked great. He had to get a little creative with the pans, but he made it work. The wagon and chairs were the best we've ever had at a rental in Captiva....thank you for those. Thanks again for sharing your place with us. If our group size stays the same, we will definitely consider Villa Elena for our 2 week vacation next year

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!
