Not clean at all
We did not end up staying here. We were moved to another house. There was a dead cock roach, dirty dishes, dirty toilets,..... never cleaned at all. We were supposed to check in early. Nothing was ready. Requested to be moved and realty company did. Christina (homeowner) was very understanding. House we stayed in was great, but was not VRBO. This wasn’t a VRBO issue, it was an American Realty issue. But VRBO needs to be aware of the issue with third parties taking care (lack of) property.
This is in a wonderful location, You can walk to the beach and restaurants within minutes. The beach house is laid out well and has a lot of foliage, that gives you privacy. The house was clean and comfortable and the master bed was comfortable . If you are going to be there for an extended stay be aware that the kitchen appliances and cooking utensils are dated and makes cooking a little more of a challenge. The outdoor seating area is very nice but the hot tub is also dated. The owner and management were very responsive when needed and we were very appreciative. I would stay here again.
We have been going to Captiva every March for years. We have stayed in several different places now and I will say this is one of our favorites. It was a closer to the beach than we have stayed in the past and just a short turn on the beach to Mucky Duck. We had everything we needed and we were very comfortable at Life's a Beach.
Location, charm and gardens
This cottage is charming with bright colors and tropical gardens providing much privacy. It was perfectly comfortable for 4 adults and a dog. The location was absolutely perfect for us--a quiet lane, private beach access to a seemingly endless, shell-filled beach, and walking distance to at least 10 different restaurants. It's not fancy -- no pool or gourmet kitchen -- but that's not what we were seeking. Loved our stay.
Thank you Linda for the review. We are very happy you enjoyed our low key island style beach cottage and look forward to having you stay with us again.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Life’s a Beach and hope to return. The house is adorable and has everything you need for a week at the beach. A quick stroll down the street and you arrive at a fantastic beach. Highly recommend this quaint cottage.
Thank you for your wonderful feedback. We are very happy to know you enjoyed your stay at our beach cottage. We also hope your family will be back soon.
Captiva island is a true gem on the gulf coast. Our beach cottage is right in the heart of the island on wonderful Wightman lane. Easy walk to beach and all restaurants.close to historic Jansens marina for boat rentals or to hire a water taxi to take you to the neighboring islands for lunch.
Sanibel island offers an array of restaurants and bars as well as miles of bike lanes and famous Ding Darling natural preserve just 10 minutes away from the cottage. Also visit the wonderful Shell Museum.Sanibel brand new Rec Center 10 minutes away.

About Christina Zeller
We fell in love with Captiva after a short visit to the gulf coast in 1996. We had just build a vacation home in Breckenridge, Colorado but after finding Captiva we decided that we love the warm weather and the beautiful beach more than the cold. We quickly sold the mountain home and purchased our lovely beach cottage located in the heart of the island. We have never regretted buying the cottage and love to spend as much time as possible in Captiva. This island is a wonderful place and the beaches and sunsets are magnificent. We are sure you will fall in love with Captiva and Life's a Beach too.
