About the property

2 Bedroom & 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6, 3TVs

Perfect place for a family or 2 couples. Condo is right on the beach. Great beach for shelling. Lots of people gather at the beach for perfect sunsets. The town of Captiva is a 5 minute walk with lots of great restaurants and shops. A Starbucks is a

2 minute walk. BBQs are just outside the condo. Laundry services are available. Weather is usually perfect and it rarely rains. Very, Very relaxing trip.

Near perfect vacation accommodations

  • 4 of 5

Having stayed a couple of times on Sanibel Island, this was our first time staying in Captiva Island.

The accommodations were good for us. The unit is clean and simply decorated. The living room and master bedroom have updated flat screen TVs, the fast WIFI always worked and the view of the Gulf and sunsets were awesome.

The unit could use just some minor fix ups. Our coffee pot carafe lid was broken as well as the beach umbrella belonging to this condo. After a trip to Bailey's Store, my husband got the necessary supplies to fix the umbrella so it was fine the rest of our stay.

There is a starter pack of dish soap, dishwasher soap, laundry soap. A good addition to the starter pack would be a few coffee filters, perhaps a pack of coffee and some salt and pepper. Unit has plenty of dishes, glasses and cookware but could use more teaspoons as there were only 2 or 3 during our stay. There is a shared laundry room on the ground level of this complex. We didn't use it but good to have it available in close proximity. The machines are $2 per use.

Pool was a nice size and just steps from the condo. There are no umbrellas by this pool - just loungers and a couple tables with chairs.

Unit was fairly quiet the majority of the time but keep in mind this is the first floor of a three floor complex so you will hear the people above you moving about and children running. Most people were considerate in their noise levels.

This is a no smoking complex which is important to us. Be aware smoking is allowed on the lanai of each unit so you will catch a whiff of smoke from those neighbouring units if they are smoking. It sent me inside on beautiful mornings that I was enjoying a coffee and reading on the lanai. But this of course is what to expect when renting anywhere. Thankfully the islands are "no smoking" in public places but many times we encountered people smoking on the beach which is kind of annoying and disgusting that many think nothing of leaving their cigarette butts and litter on the beach. Sad that people come all this way to vacation in such a beautiful location and treat it and the environment without the respect it deserves.

I would recommend this unit to anyone wanting to stay Gulf front on Captiva Island.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. I am glad you enjoyed your stay. Your recommendations for the starter kit and more teaspoons are great ideas and well noted. Every year we look to add, and improve, something to the condo. We just installed new windows and bought new furniture for the living room. I agree with non smoking. Over the years we have never smelled neighbors smoking, but we are aware it can happen. We would love to have you again sometime, and thanks so much for the pleasant review. Colin and Gail (owners)

Fantastic stay in perfect location at a great price

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying in this privately owned Beach Villa apartment during our Summer vacation. On our previous two trips to Captiva we stayed at similar Beach Villa apartments through South Seas Island Resort but this year decided to try a private rental.

The standard of this apartment was at least comparable, if not better than the apartments we stayed in during our previous visits. We preferred the shower room to the main bedroom as opposed to a bath/shower fitting experienced on our previous visits. The apartment also has its own private Internet connection as opposed to the South Seas guest internet which had a weak signal.

The main downside of renting privately is that you do not have access to all of the South Seas resort facilities e.g. Beach sun beds/parasols/towels, North pool, restaurants. However, this was not a major issue as the owner provided beach equipment and we spent most of our time around the local pool (we hired towels through Royal Shell) and in terms of eating out the apartment is ideally positioned for venues such as Doc Ford's and Starbucks!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Yes we like being a 3 minute walk to Starbucks and all the great restaurants Captiva has to offer. We are not part of the South Seas amenities, but don't feel a need for it as we provide beach chairs and have a private pool/BBQ/tennis court. Guests can bring their own towels or rent them from Royal Shell for $2/week. I believe our rental price is about half of the rental price with all the amenities. Thank you.
