We live on island, as do many of our staff. We provide quick response to needs. Of still greater interest is the Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, 5 miles from the cottage, south on Sanibel as well as Sanibel recreation center.

Why Our Captiva, LLC chose Captiva
This is a gorgeous private acre on Captiva's world renowned beach. This small, Olde Florida Cottage is like a blast from the past with Tropical Landscaping, great beach location, privacy and amazing sunsets; nothing on these islands is closer to the Gulf--what more could you ask for? Awesome, some guests call it shabby chic design.

Beautiful property. Peaceful and private. Well taken care of. Nice to have beach chairs and umbrella available.
Beautiful price property right on the beach!
Coquina Cottage did not disappoint! The property was incredibly beautiful! The lush greenery, the private hot hub, hammock, and plentiful beach chairs make this an amazing place to stay, even if you never leave the grounds. You walk out onto the beach and are overcome by the beauty of the ocean. The beach was very quiet and felt like we had the beach to ourselves. We’ll be dreaming about this place for years to come!
We love it when guests "get" our wonderful beach cottage. There are no streets to cross, the cottage is very private and perfectly located on the beach with great convenience to the Gulf, fishing, shopping, shelling and more than adequate parking.
Did we tell you the views of the Gulf and sunset are spectacular?
We loving coming to Coquina Cottage. This was our third time. It's so peaceful and private. I love walking the private beach looking for great shells. Everything you need is provided at the cottage. Just come enjoy and relax.
A place in paradise
We stayed only a few days but felt home from the first moments. The place was perfect for us both and the dog. The beach so close and the condo so nice we enjoyed every second.
Wildlife was great as well and we took many pictures of the dolphins and pelicans. Will hopefully be able to come again.
Private, romantic, adorably decorated
This is one of the last true Florida cottages on Captiva. It is so cute and eclectic lay decorated. It’s pet friendly so we brought our dog, she loved jumping in the water. The beach is literally in the back yard! Can’t wait to get back.
Our vacation was wonderful, the little house cute and clean but very little for all of us primarily the downstaris. The upstairs suite was much nicer with great views and plenty of room inside. The house overall has a beachy feel but a little outdated inside. During our stay we had a couple of days of rain and the ceiling on the bottom room stained from leaks. Overall ...it was nice, quiet, comfortable and private. Joe was wonderful host and loved the professional pics he took of our family. Wish I knew we had this opportunity and would have planned nicer clothes for the pics :). The outdoors garden is GREAT! The reason I didn't give it a 5 was the age of home and visible need for update.
Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge, State of the Art Recreation Center on Sanibel, Bailey-Matthews Shell Musuem, Edison-Ford Home Estates, Shelling and Fishing excursions, 26 miles of bike paths on Sanibel and so much more to do and see.
