"Location on the Island is great for those wanting more privacy. The photos show the unit perfectly - this unit is above and beyond any other rental we have stayed in. The furnishings are high end and the unit is well maintained. The walk to the beach is lovely.....and all of the beach supplies are perfect. We rented kayaks and were able to experience playful manatees on our excursions. The beach is wonderful for shelling. The pool area is well maintained as well as the tennis courts. We only went off the Island once in our four days and that was to a beach walk with the curator of the Shell museum. When visiting Sanibel this will always be our first choice."

"My wife and I gave our four children, three in-laws, and five grandchildren a week on Captiva with us for the week after Christmas. We had a great time, and the Dolphin Cove home worked exceptionally well for us. We found we could get a day pass to the beach and pool at 'Tween Waters for a reasonable price, so we had all of the advantages of a great resort with the privacy and reduced food costs of a private home. The home itself is in a great location, very private, and the enclosed pool adjacent to the living room was great. There are six (NOT seven) bedrooms, so we had plenty of room for everyone. We rented a boat for a day, so the dock was very useful. The wildlife viewing was great -- dolphins, ospreys, even a bobcat! The kitchen is very functional and we saved a fortune (and reduced stress by not having to wrangle small children in restaurants) by cooking most of our meals in. Upsides: Captiva is a great place, very relaxing, with wonderful beaches as well as pleasant shopping, restaurants, and wildlife refuges close at hand. Downsides: a lot of deferred maintenance on the exterior of the house, and light switches and exterior lights that did not function."

"We had such a great time. The condo was extremely comfortable and just steps from the beach. Our puppy loved it. Michael was a pleasure to work with and responded to our every need. We liked it so much we will be back next year for a month."

"We stayed at this condo during the Thanksgiving holiday. There is a beautiful kitchen, and the condo was very comfortable. It was right on the gulf, and we enjoyed our beach views and coffee each morning on the patio. Our children enjoyed the pool and hot tub."
