  • Beach Bliss

    "Life's a Beach is wonderful, a beach cottage paradise. It has so many amenities, exactly as described. The cottage is bright and clean and in a lovely, very quiet neighborhood. The property is comfortable and well maintained. Each year we notice improvements and new items for guests to use, a new grill this year. Though we didn't cook, other than quick breakfasts, it's nice to have the option, with a grill and full kitchen. This was our third visit, and we've already booked our fourth. I anxiously await our return every year, sometimes watching sunsets on The Mucky Duck webcam. Our favorite things are the beach decor, lush plants and trees, the hot tub, nightly sunsets less than a block away, and good restaurants within easy walking distance or a short drive away. We bought a coupon book through the Sanibel-Captiva Kiwanis Club for $35 with many buy one/get one entree coupons (keep an eye on their Facebook page for when they go on sale). There is so much to do in the Captiva-Sanibel area! We simply love it and take full advantage of what there is to do, plus relaxing, of course! This year we went shelling at low tide at Bowman's Beach (score!), attended a beach walk with a marine biologist at Island Inn in Sanibel (register through Bailey Matthews National Shell Museum, in person or on their website), kayaked around Buck Key with Adventure Sea Kayak from Tween Waters property (many birds, a small shark, dolphins swimming not even six feet away, a cormorant named Carl that lands on the kayaks watching for fish stirred up by the paddles), drove through J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge to see birds, crab races at The Crow's Nest Restaurant at Tween Waters (what a hoot, at least once in a lifetime), and went to hear Randy Wayne White speak about his brand new book in the Hannah series, "Seduced." This series is good, but don't miss his Doc Ford series. We did a one-day trip to Key West from Ft. Myers Beach on the Key West Express catamaran. In Key West, we went to the Butterfly Museum, Ernest Hemingway's home, Southernmost point buoy for pictures, Southernmost Cafe for a delicious lunch, and Schooner Wharf bar for a quick drink before boarding for our return. I highly recommend Life's a Beach!"

  • Amazing beach stay!

    "What a great place to stay! From the moment we walked thru the front door, it felt like home! The cottage was beautifully decorated, very comfortable, and extremely clean. It had everything we needed for a comfortable week at the beach, which was just a short walk away. Our family of five fell in love with Captiva! The water was so incredibly warm, and we saw dolphins from the beach every single day. Truly an amazing experience and stay!"

  • Absolutely Beautiful!

    "Wow! We just returned and we already can't wait for our return. Upon our arrival, the owner, Ruth, couldn't have made us feel any more welcomed! She was so hospitable and friendly as she told us all about her fabulous house. The house is beautiful, extremely clean, and very well maintained. Also, if you love to cook, she has everything in her kitchen that you could possibly need! The rooms are decorated beautifully and plush with very comfortable beds. You won't need to bring a thing: chairs, beach towels, umbrellas, coolers, beach wagon to tote everything in, etc! Also, the home has a great layout! The house is steps from the beach and also a short walk to the pool. The island itself is breathtaking and anywhere you want to go is walking distance. Or, you can also rent a golf cart to ride around in. There is a place on the island that you can rent from and it is reasonably priced. If you plan on doing that, be sure to reserve a cart before you depart because they go fast. We will definitely be returning! Thank you Ruth for renting out your beautiful beach home to us! We had the BEST time! xo -Jennifer"

  • Relaxing & Convenient!

    "My husband and I were able to take a very last minute vacation from work with our 2 young children. With less than 24 hours notice, we were able to contact the owner despite her being out of the country and book 4 nights at this condo. She was incredibly friendly, professional and accommodating. Everything was handled via email and one phone call and she provided tons of information in her welcome email. We checked in after hours and it was super simple. Once we arrived, we were so pleased with our choice. The condo is very well maintained, professionally cleaned and well supplied. The bed was very comfortable. The separate sink and shower/toilet was great! Having a screened lanai is priceless as we were able to sit out there in the mornings and late evenings without worry of mosquitoes or bugs. Not to mention, the view was fabulous!! While the pool is very convenient to this unit, the beach is just a few yards away and AMAZING. We spent all day, every day on the beach and only used the pool once. All of the provided chairs, coolers, toys, etc. were awesome! We cooked breakfast and lunch in the condo every day and everything we needed was in the cabinets, even ziplocs. The restaurants were all very close. And while we did eat at Doc Ford's one night, we tried the owner's recommendations the other nights and were much happier with those experiences. I would definitely recommend this unit. We hope to return next year for sure!"
