"My family and in-laws rented Villa Elena for the week at the end of April. We were extremely pleased with the house. Everything we needed (except food) was already there including a Keurig and beach towels. The house is so nicely laid out. The pool and back courtyard is where we spent most of our time. The house is a short walk from the beach. And there is a great wheeled cart that you can pull to the beach with all the beach supplies and toys. Cindy was so great prior to arrival in providing us with suggestions on where to eat and what to do. She even recommended a great captain to take us deep sea fishing that was a short walk down the main road. I would highly recommend Villa Elena to anyone looking to visit Captiva as it was one of our favorite places that we have ever rented."

"The location is great. 90 second walk to a great beach and 2 minutes to dining. Very lush property and nice pool. The place needs painted and the linens need thrown away. They need all new towels and bed linens/pillows. These place gets overrun with tiny ants, maybe this is normal for Florida? They do have bug spray but the ants even found food we stored in the microwave! We used Jerry's in Sanibel to stock with groceries before we arrived and this worked out great. The price of the house was half of the cost of properties on the same street so if you want to save money and have a great location but put up with a place that is a little rough then this is a good choice. Bring sheets!"

Awesome week with family and friends in a magnificent hom
"The Bella Bellini is amazing!!!! If I could give this property higher than a 5 star rating I would. This property has everything you need. The linens beach towels bath towels starter set of the essentials (that actually got us half way thru the week) beach chairs umbrellas floaties beach toys beach cart and the list goes on and on. We had a group of 16 family and friends (14 adults and 2 kids) that spent a week at this wonderful place. There was plenty of room for all of us to have our own space and common areas for us to spend fun times together. The pictures are exactly what you get when you arrive. The beach is a short walk up a quant street that has a couple restaurants, general store, yolo ( place to rent all kind of things-bikes, golf carts, paddle boards etc) and our groups "favorite place" the ice cream shop. The bay is a short walk to watch the sunrise and is home of captiva cruises. The sunsets are something to see at the beach. People gather outside the Mucky duck to watch this breath taking moment each and every night which is just at the end of Andy Rosse lane. Last but definitely not least I can't say enough about the property manager Sheri. She was a joy to work with. She answered any questions I had very promptly both while we were there and prior to our arrival. She made sure everything was perfect for our stay even going above and beyond to extend our checkout since we had later flights home. I have dealt with many other property managers and Sheri is by far the best one I have ever dealt with. Hopefully our group will get the chance to come back to captiva and when we do this is where we will be be staying!!"

"My wife and I spent a wonderful week at this condo. We had been to Captiva before but never stayed there. The place was everything the owner told us it was a more. Furnished with everything you could need! The place was spotless as was the entire resort. We loved the pool right out back that never seemed crowded, the beach, and the many restaurants within walking distance. We only moved our vehicle one time to drive to Sanibel for dinner. The owner provides many good suggestions for restaurants. We love the para sailing with YOLO."
