"This summer was our family's 15th (at least) trip to Captiva and all at Gingerbread House! When we 1st rented in June 1989, my wife and I were utterly blown away by the peaceful serenity, impeccable furnishings, and amazing beach and property! This is the best value in Captiva or Sanibel, for that matter! Over the years, and 2 children later, we still find Captiva and Gingerbread House "magical." I lost my wife to cancer in 2014 and when I told the children we would take a vacation trip this summer -- they said Captiva! Not Disney; Not Universal -- The Gingerbread House! Thank you Kathy and Henry for creating such a wonderful retreat! As long as you own the property, we will definitely be back!"

"Our family of 4 (includes 3yro & 6mth old) had the best beach vacation and we are happy to share our review.
BOOKING - Very easy! Owner Mike was prompt with emails and was responsive when sorting out a pricing issue with the condo office.
UNIT - super clean and well equipped! Very children friendly especially being on the ground floor with a screened lanai. The kids room can get a tad noisy from the elevator traffic but easier solved with our white noise machine.
PROPERTY - the office team was efficient and polite. Their "beach ambassador" Ian was the icing that made our trip more than perfect! Ian took care of us, ensure that we had beach chair and umbrellas, pointed out pods of dolphins as they swam by. People working there are all out nice, even the night security guy,William, who ensured that I was fine as I fished off the docks at night.
Other notes: a heads up that the condo office charges a processing fee (like most places) and a damage insurance fee that can add up to over $100-- so plan that into you budget.
We will return sooner than later!"

"We have had a wonderful 2 months in Bonita Springs. The condo had everything we needed. Beautifully landscaped complex. Swimming pool a stone's throw away. Beautiful beach within easy reach. We enjoyed browsing round the many Thrift Stores and found lots of bargains! Also enjoyed many of the nearby attractions - Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary, Bird Gardens, Coconut Point, Miramar Outlets, Naples Pier to name a few. Sunshine every day - who could ask for more! Thanks Rebecca and Greg!"

Excellent Value and Location, large rooms, clean and well stocked.
"Thank you Paul for being a wonderful host! We loved the area so much, we have a pending contract to buy in the area. We had so much fun and really enjoyed your condo. It was larger than I expected. Comfortable bedrooms and plenty of dishes etc. We tried most of the restaurants you recommended. I think the highlight was the pontoon boat ride for an afternoon. Favorite restaurants were Doc Fords and SOB. Everything went well!"
