  • Beautiful!

    "I feel like this house was so much more than we imagined! The pictures look good but the house is so much bigger in person. We had everything we needed with the beach across the street. Would definitely love to return to this exact house for another vacation!"

  • Comfort and Quiet in a Park-Like Setting

    "Driving north from Sanibel and onto Captiva until you can't go any further is knowing what it feels like to get away from the rush and roar; the motor vehicles are fewer and fewer, giving way to bicycles, golf carts and pedestrians, until finally you're the last motor vehicle. After we parked in the protected space under the building, we barely needed it again for the duration of our two-week stay. This home is well-equipped, clean and spacious. The design is open with lots of glass and light and offers expansive views over the sound and Red Fish Pass. If you sit on the couch in the living room and look out over the deck railing, which is a lot like a railing on a cruise ship, all you see is water and it feels like being on a cruise ship especially as the 'other' boats pass by. We fished most days just outside the door, courtesy of the rods and handy hook remover offered by the owners. The sheepshead are plentiful there. While we could see a bit of the Gulf looking left from the deck, we could walk 75 yards to Red Fish Pass for a full view of the Gulf. Walk another couple hundred yards around the tip of the island and you're at the beach. Walk just over two miles straight down the beach and you arrive at Captiva village where there's a small convenience store and very good restaurants. We enjoyed the Mucky Duck (on the beach and a favorite for sunsets), Keylime Bistro (great breakfast and dinner there ... renowned key lime pie) and the Bubble Room (quirky, for sure, and very good). The two-mile walk back up the beach made overindulgence okay. There are other highly rated restaurants ... next time! We also enjoyed a couple of fresh sea trout meals, the bounty from our guided fishing trip on Tarpon Bay (Tarpon Bay Explorers ... terrific guide; they also offer tram or kayak tours of the Darling National Wildlife Refuge on Sanibel with very knowledgeable naturalists. Plenty to do on Captiva. Resort amenities don't come with this property, but we never felt the need for any of that. Well, maybe we would've played the little 9-hole course once since it's right there. For real golf, the recently renovated Dunes Club was recommended as the best. We didn't bother; endless hours of shelling more rewarding! The owners of this nice getaway home are thoughtful and well-organized, offering clear instructions on getting to the unit and getting in. They provided multiple means of contact if needed. Highly recommend."

  • Happy Happy

    "We had a fantastic time staying on Captiva and LOVED the condo. The location can't be beat - right at the beach. We went down every evening to watch the sunset. Every morning found us on the lanai simply enjoying the view and the ocean breeze - the osprey kept us entertained. We stayed with you last year and certainly like the new windows - they make the bedrooms seem larger some how. It was so nice to be out all day, exploring and swimming (and of course shopping says Betty!) and then come home to such a relaxing condo. And like the last review - your place has always been perfectly clean. Next year (after I retire) we plan to stay for a month and have friends come to visit while we are there. We can't wait to share what we consider our little piece of paradise!"

  • An Island treasure!

    "This was our second visit to Rick's Retreat. Only a 2 minute walk to the beach, the cottage is in a quiet section of old town Captiva. One of it's best features is that it is not a giant condominium. Perfect for a couple or small family and it's dog friendly. The interior is immaculate, and three bedrooms provide plenty of room to spread out. The screened in back porch is ideal for morning coffee and catching up on email or reading the paper. Except for some trips to nearby Ding Darling and Sanibel, the Subaru stayed parked for most of our stay! Everything you need is just a short walk away! A relaxing time in an environment that's extremely difficult to find in Florida resort areas. We hope to return many times in the coming years. Thanks Rick!"
