About Lyndsay Anderson

We purchased this unit in 2015 after spending many years vacationing in Sanibel & Captiva. It is our home away from home and we are excited to share it with you! The unit was recently updated and we have put a lot of time into making it as comfortable as possible with a modern design sensibility. We hope that you will enjoy it as much as we do (especially during those cold northern winters)!

Why Lyndsay Anderson chose Captiva

My husband has been traveling to area since he was a child and we began coming here as a family. It is a truly special place for families and has much to offer children and adults alike. From the great shelling beaches, the gorgeous sunsets, to the delicious seafood (and rum drinks) and the warm weather, we can't think of any place better. We plan on spending most of our free time, and eventually, our retirement years here!

What makes this condo unique

One of the key reasons we purchased this villa is that it's one of the very few three-bedroom condos on Captiva and is both quiet and comfortable. We love the proximity to the beach and the restaurants and shops, as well as the peaceful views of the bay and boats coming in and out of the marina. You can sit out on the lanai and watch the sunrise, then later walk down to the beach to watch the sunset. You're likely to encounter dolphins, manatees, osprey, pelicans and more during your stay, even if you don't take advantage of the Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge on Sanibel, which is just a short drive away.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The condo was beautiful and easily accommodated our family of six adults. Convenient to everything. Kitchen was well equipped, and with three bathrooms, no one waited for a shower. We look forward to returning!

Great family vacation!

  • 4 of 5

Our 2 families enjoyed this condo during Spring Break April 2017. There was plenty of room, fully stocked kitchen, beautiful sunrise every morning from the porch, and a wagon full of beach supplies. The location was close to Starbucks, shops, beach and center of town. We went to YOLO and rented bikes, paddle boards and banana boat ride. The condo pool was large with plenty of lounge chairs everyday. We will definitely be back next year!

Lovely family vacation spot

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful views! Peaceful location. Pleasant walk to the beach and Doc Ford's restaurant. The pool and hot tub area was beautiful, so we did not miss the ability to use the main resort pool at all. Comfortable condo. Not many 3 bedroom rental units available on Sanibel or Captiva with this bed configuration. Wonderful nearby restaurant, Captiva House, made the inability to eat at Harbourside a non-issue. The owner, Lyndsay, was a pleasure and very accommodating. Plenty of large beach towels, beach chairs, a wagon and umbrella made trips to the sand very easy without having to bring these items from home.

Great condo for family, short walk to the beach

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (wife, 4 yr old daughter, 1.5 year old daughter, and mother-in-law) stayed in the condo for a week at the end of July. We had rented a place in Sanibel last year and had found sunset beach in Captiva to be our favorite spot. So when we were putting our trip together this year we found this condo. We could not have been happier with the condo, it easily slept is all, we even had my sister in law and her family of 2 young girls and husband stay with us in the condo for 3 nights while we were there and there was plenty of room. The best part was that the condo was only about a 5 minute walk to sunset beach, so we did very little driving this year. The pool is great, the property is great and the view of the bay is really nice too. Would highly recommend this unit for family vacations where you want to walk to the beach and cook in for breakfast and lunch! We'll be back for sure!

Great Place & Great Value!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 (2 grandparents, 2 parents and 4 children) had a great time at this condo. The layout is just perfect as the grandparents had a first floor master bedroom and bath the remaining 6 of us could go upstairs to two separate bedrooms and 2 full baths. Condo was very clean and neat. It's a little strange being in South Seas but not having access to any of their amenities but when you compare the price of this condo vs. what South Seas charges you won't mind at all! Easy walk to beach and the pool area was excellent. Quick walk to Doc Fords or any of the restaurants down the street (Mucky Duck, Bubble Room, etc...).

Located in the heart of Captiva, the villa is located within brief walking distance to the beach, shops, restaurants, and marinas. Many shelling, dolphin watching and sunset cruises leave from this end of the island. Island sunsets are breathtaking and the shelling will keep children and adults occupies for hours. Stops for drinks or food at Doc Ford's Rum Bar & Grill, sample the seafood and pie at Key Lime Bistro, or grab a beer at the tiki bar at the Mucky Duck and watch the sun go down. Captiva has it all!
