Punta Rassa Landing You can't get any closer to the water without getting wet
average rating of 5.0 based on 5 reviews

Gorgeous View!

  • 5 of 5

Punta Rassa Landing is one of the best places our family has stayed on vacation. The view of the ocean is exceptional and you are really right on the water when you step out the sliding doors of the living area. Dolphins and manatee were sighted daily. You are so close to Sanibel Island. The house itself is very beautiful and comfortable. Large living area and bedrooms. Great to have 3 bathrooms as well. The kitchen is very modern with everything you can imagine to cook in.

Daniel was a great host and we so appreciated the daily passes to the pool at the resort directly behind the property.

Everything about this place is great...will definately return!

Amazing home, views and amenities!!

  • 5 of 5

A hidden gem!! After endless searching for a spring break getaway, my friends and I came across this hidden gem and our stay was nothing short of wonderful.

Where to begin!!

First and foremost, the view!! When you walk into this home it feels as if you are on a houseboat, or perhaps have the deluxe room on a cruise ship. You will enjoy waking up each morning to dolphins jumping and boats headed out to sea, and then end the day with arguably the best view of the sunset.

This home is airy, very clean and has great finishes. Unlike other rentals, we all commented on how nice the furniture was and how stocked the kitchen was. The house comes stocked with plenty of cooking supplies, as well as towels and cleaning products.

This home is in a great location. You are approximately 7 minutes away from the local Publix and 10 minutes away from being ocean-side on Sanibel Island. Getting to Sanibel was easy and bike accessible, if you so desire!

For a small extra fee we were able to enjoy the pools and hottubs at the local Mariott resort! I would recommend this if you are one to prefer pool over ocean.

We cannot say enough good things about this home!! We enjoyed our time here and would love to come back!

Amazing views!! Great location for adventure seekers!!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage on the coast of Punta Rassa is an ideal location for biking enthusiasts, wild life observation and waterfront vacations. Breath taking views of the Gulf, with manatee and dolphins swimming in the bay. Pelicans, jumping fish and cranes entertained us daily. The bike ride to Sanibel Island was about 2 miles long and easily traversed, sometimes faster than by car. Bicycles are recommended on Sanibel since parking was difficult to find and expensive. We rode to the island every day. The cottage was tastefully decorated with newer appliances. All three bedrooms had en suite bathrooms with plenty of room for everything. Sounds of waves below lulled us to sleep every night. We enjoyed the spacious living room with the perfect view of sunsets every evening. Owner and manager were accommodating and exceeded expectations. Beware of low ceilings and doorways if over 6'1". Not much privacy outdoors but plenty of room for parking. We will definately book this cottage again.

This property is literally over the water and situated on a dead end road right before Sanibel bridge. It is well appointed with upgrades and nice amenities. We highly recommend Punta Rassa! Very responsive owner!

Car: recommended

Can explore Sanibel Captiva area Since you are on this side of bridge no daily toll and avoid island traffic and has traffic light at entrance to make it easy to get out during peak season..
