Our stay in this unit was great! The location and proximity to the beach were perfect. It was easy to check in and the few questions we had were answered promptly. The unit was clean, comfortable, and large enough for our family of four. We loved our view of the ocean, the unique, short walk to the beach and the never ending sounds of the crashing waves. Our only suggestions are the need for larger beach chairs that can handle average-sized adults, coffee filters and salt and pepper shakers, all minor things in comparison to the great experience we had. We left with a strong longing to stay, and the feeling of being somewhere very different for a week. Very sad to leave. We would definitely stay here again!! The owner/manager takes very good care of things.
I had such a fun time with my family this year .. on 6/22/19 my 20 year son and I were in the water when a dolphin swam within 3 feet of us !!! We couldn’t believe it 🥰� it’s something we will never forget ever!! This was out 4th summer trip to Captiva we love it there!!!
Cannot Beat Proximity to Beach!
-Easy 1 min walk to beach
-Easy ride to town and all over Captiva on our (rented) bikes!
-Outside shower and foot rinse
-Large pool option
-Gorgeous sunset view from the deck!!
-Very responsive! The toilet handle broke on our 2nd day and was fixed within just a few hours.
Disclaimer: We’ve been very spoiled by much more well appointed and stocked VRBO’s whose owners just thought of everything, including a welcome basket. Imagine this condo unit as more as a hotel suite with a kitchenette and poorer quality toilet paper. If we had flown here, we would have had to purchase almost everything (and not be able to fly it home with us) such as coffee, shampoo, beach toys, salt and pepper, pam spray, pool towels, bicycles, plastic baggies, cooler etc.
-Less than comfortable sheets/towels/blankets.
-The sheets for the pullout couch did not even fit, came shrink wrapped and were scratchy, and the blanket was pitiful.
-NO shade at the pool whatsoever. Not even a table with an umbrella.
-Upstairs guests were very noisy and walls are extremely thin impeding privacy.
-Deck was tiny and couldn’t adequately fit our family of around the table eliminating the outside dining option.
All in all, we would stay there again because of the location, but I would pack much more, since we have the option on driving there and stuffing our car with the necessities. If you’re flying, you may have to purchase and toss. Waste of money and bad for the environment.
Everyone has different needs and expectations when they travel. The majority of renters have been to Captiva before and understand what they need and where they like to stay. I did not advertise that I provided any of those things that you were disappointed not have had. The vast majority of our renters are always pleased with our unit. It is a beach vacation, a simple life. I'm sorry you were unsatisfied.
The areas surrounding the cottage were lovely and lush. Of course the best thing was the view and proximity of the beach and beach access. I was disappointed that there were no beach towels in the unit and they needed to be “rented “. The unit needs updating, but I guess that would increase the rental fee. We had a wonderful time and would love to visit again.
The cottage was clean and cozy with plenty of towels and comfy beds! We would have liked more comfortable beach chairs and better working umbrellas but all in all this was our best week in Captiva! We’ve stayed at a South Seas 4 vacations already but this was the best! Julie was attentive and very helpful! Thank you for the memories!!!!
