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.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: Amazing location right on the beach, wonderful views and location. Great spa, amazing tropical landscaping. Full acre on the beach. So close to Santiva Village Marina, groceries, great restaurants, fishing and shelling... walk to Sanibel! Close to recreation center and Ding Darling.
