Captiva Island cottage description

Charming Coquina Cottage sits right in the inn sand, steps to Gulf of Mexico, on the award winning Captiva BEACH. Has own private beach, great seclusion. This very romantic and private Florida cottage is surrounded by an acre of the most beautiful TROPICAL Beach GARDENS, just a few steps to the Gulf of Mexico - All the beach and sun you can soak in, very well appointed, great attention to detail. Near shops and restaurants.
Our SUNSETS are awesome, the endless views from elevated hot tub/SPA are phenomenal. LAZY DAYS in the hammock on beach in our coconut palm grove...so easy ... and life is beautiful. Star gazing is amazing. See Sunsets and sunrises from cottage!

And you'll love the outside as well; beautiful beach garden with large spa, sea grape and coconut palms canopy invites you to all kinds of OUTDOOR activities. Read a good book in the HAMMOCK, explore the Gulf of Mexico, enjoy your dinner at our sandy dining room in the shade, or just gaze at the evening stars in our large elevated SPA. Lighting leads the way for a nighttime beach walk or a MOONLIGHT swim. Most affordable rate for a cottage on the beach!

If shelling, body surfing, fishing, star gazing, paddle boarding, surfing and/or sunbathing is too tame for your memory book, take a 5 min. walk to Sanibel's Santiva Village or drive to Captiva's PICTURESQUE historical village for rental boats, sightseeing & shelling charters, sport fishing, parasailing, jet skiing, restaurants, shops and more. Sanibel's famous Ding Darling National WILDLIFE Refuge is less than 7 mins. drive.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1998

              About the owner: We live on island, as does our staff. We provide quick response to needs. Of still greater interest is the Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, 5 miles from the cottage, south on Sanibel as well as Sanibel recreation center.

              Why the Owner Chose Captiva Island:
              This is a gorgeous private acre on Captiva's world renowned beach. This small, Olde Florida Cottage is like a blast from the past with Tropical Landscaping, great beach location, privacy and amazing sunsets; nothing on these islands is closer to the Gulf--what more could you ask for? Awesome, some guests call it shabby chic design.
