Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: Sherri and Rick Agnew Owners and Island neighbors. We are professionals in Indiana. We love coming to Cayo Costa to enjoy the peaceful Island life. We bought the Junonia Cottage in 2009, it is reminiscent of a fine rare shell known as the 'Junonia'. This is our treasure to share with all who would like to experience our bare foot lifestyle. In hopes that you can recapture the invigorating sensation of mental and physical well being that we experience by the sea. As the pace of life speeds up, we escape to Cayo Costa to fid our true balance. It is like recharging our internal batteries. Sherri is an interior designer and Rick is a commercial real estate broker by trade. We live in Columubus, Indiana and come the island on and off throughout the year. We have 'Sand Dollar De LaCosta' as our home away from home. We have restored the Junonia beach house as it was originally built, totally Island style.
Why the Owner Chose Captiva, FL, USA:
Our island is off the grid, private, majestical and spiritual place. You will want come to see what we mean and why we want to share the experience with you. There is an abundance of great views, shelling, fishing and wildlife. 1 mile from Cabbage Key's "Hamburger In Paradise" restaurant and bar. On the Blue Calusa Waterway kayaking route. It is always hard to leave.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Cayo Costa beach is as isolated as is beautiful. Many times one can go there and truly be all by yourself, which is rare for Florida and the USA! It is often referred to as 'the best kept secret in south Florida'. Western sunsets over the Gulf of Mexico!
