  • The condo was very clean and well stocked. We visited with two children (3 and 5) and the condo was perfect. The location was great, steps to the beach and across the street from the bike path. We were a quick bike ride to Bailey's grocery store and lots of restaurants (all which were kid friendly). The pool was great and the clubhouse had daily children activities.

  • Great beach location on Sanibel. The condo was beautiful and very comfortable. The kitchen has everything needed to prep meals. You can be to the beach in a matter of minutes from your front door and we experienced some of the best shelling on the island right there. The in-unit laundry made it possible for us to pack light (to bring back more shells) and the comfortable living room allowed us time to relax after dark. Perfect location and will certainly be back!

  • Randy place remains a 5* experience! As I mentioned in previous responses he has taken everything you could want or need for an enjoyable stay into consideration. When visiting Sanibel this is where you'll want to be! Location is so convenient. Enjoy your stay!

    Gail2019-10-19T00:00:00Z
  • A great place to stay for a family vacation. Randy has thought of everything you need to have a great time.

    Pat Childress2019-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • Pointe Santo is great! A relaxing place to spend your vacation. Easy walk to the beach and pool. A few minutes car ride to all shops and restaurants. Randy’s condo was very nice. I would highly recommend staying at this condo.

    Jake2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • I highly recommend this condo! My family and I vacation in Sanibel every August and Randy's place was like our home away from home. It was very clean and comfortable and there is a great view from the lanai. We will definitely look to book this condo again :)

  • The location was perfect for us, close to family in Captiva, away from all traffic on Periwinkle and an easy walk to the beach. The condo was arranged well with bedrooms on each end, a comfortable living & dining rooms. It is a bit dated as stated in other reviews, but there’s nothing inconvenient about it. The pool was clean & warm with plenty of lounge chairs. Ed was very responsive & concerned for our comfort. We’d definitely stay here again.

    Shelley2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • The condo was great for my husband, myself and two young kids. It’s very spacious with all amenities and about a quarter mile to the beach. We had beautiful weather. Would highly recommend!

    Shannon2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • It was clean, quiet—the owner was very responsive. Was close to the beach.

    Donna2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Sanibel is the place to go for beachcombing and sun in January. Ed's condo is a nice place, part of a larger complex. Very family friendly. Great pool, heated which is critical in the winter. The beach is amazing, and shells are terrific. We like this location, a bit off the beaten path. Condo is simple, and clean. Decor is a bit aged and dated, but that doesn't matter too much to us. Basics are provided, but not much laundry detergent (two loads), and limited kitchen staples other than salt and pepper. Again, we travel prepared, but is you want sugar, cream, oil, etc bring your own. Good basic beach staples are in the closet, which is useful.

    Sean2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Great size and location. Edward apologized for the cold weather which he had no control over. Well stocked kitchen and comfortable beds. Short walk to the beach and a closet with fun shelling tools.

    Gayle2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • Great location! The pool and private beach access were highlights for my family. The condo was clean and comfy just needs some updating. Honestly we were not there much! Always at the beach or enjoying the island. Edward was amazing and very communicative. Overall it was an enjoyable stay.

    Holly2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Sanibel is beautiful and this condo was great. Great pool and a quick walk to a nice beach. Its location was great too. Highly recommend

    Chris2019-11-15T00:00:00Z
  • This condo is an excellent value. It is large and roomy both bedrooms are large. They are separated by the living area. The couch was clean and comfy for watching TV. The table is huge. We were able to work a puzzle on one end and eat on the other. The kitchens is well equipped with more pans than I have. The condo is close to the pool( which is sparkling! The guest closet is loaded with beach stuff. Even a cart to haul an umbrella and chairs and cooler. There are even fishing poles and tackle. We had a wonderful stay and saw a manatee up close and personal under the bridge crossing the bayou. I recommend this condo. And I also must admit I read all the reviews before booking. So there were no surprises. We were comfortable and had a great time!

  • The place was recently updated and is very nice throughout. The amenities were above and beyond. Bring yourself, your suitcase and some food to get through the week. The rest is taken care of! And the best part is location. The view is breathtaking from the lanai as well as from inside the condo.

    Ramona2019-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • The condo was very nicely updated-bright, comfortable, large balcony, but the beach is the true star! Not crowded like other beach areas, lots of rinsing stations. Also easy to get to Sanibel restaurants and other island activities.

    Sanibel Island is recognized as one of the world’s best beaches. It is also known as one of the best family getaway locations for island vacations. The island is very close to the mainland, but it feels like another world. Gentle aquamarine waters of the Gulf of Mexico, golden sand and warm sun hold sway throughout the year. Sanibel is 12 miles long and 4 miles wide, and is famous for the world-class shelling beaches which stretch along the coast. The unique geographical orientation from east to west makes the beaches perfect for collecting shells from the Gulf of Mexico. With no traffic lights, neon or high-rises, Sanibel has an authentic old-world Island charm. It is unlike anything else in The United States and a Sanibel Island vacation is a dream. The Sanibel-Captiva Barrier Islands are a relatively new geological feature. It was formed within the last 6,000 years – a geological blink of an eye. The islands formed as a result of siltation and accretion, as sand was pushed onto the bedrock forming the sea floor at the edge of the mainland. Nearly half of the 12,000-acre island is designated for conservation and preservation. This is most notably in the form of the J.N. “Ding” Darling Wildlife Sanctuary, which is the largest undeveloped mangrove sanctuary in the United States. Sanibel Island has been continuously inhabited since at least 500 B.C.E, first by the Calusa Indians, then by European settlers after it was first “discovered” by Ponce De Leon in 1513. Legend has it that Ponce De Leon named the Island “Santa Isabella” after Queen Isabel while searching for the “Fountain of Youth.” In 1523, after two years attempting to establish a permanent colony, and searching in vain for the secret of eternal youth, Ponce de Leon was struck by an arrow and gravely injured in a battle with a Calusa raiding party. The Spaniards abandoned their colony in defeat and retreated to Cuba, where De Leon died from his wounds. Other legends claim the Island was named by the first mate of the famous pirate Gasparilla, after his beautiful lover Sanybel, whom he had left behind in Spain. The first known appearance of a named location on the island is from a map dated from 1765. The map was labeled Puerto de S. Nibel. Furthermore, the historic lighthouse is located at Point Ybel, derived from the original name, Santa Ybel. Sanibel is the perfect backdrop for stories of pirates and buried treasure. Many colorful and interesting characters have made the island their home. the first modern settlement on Sanibel, or “Sanybel” as it was known at the time, was established by the Florida Peninsular Land Company in 1832. The colonists abandoned Sanibel just 17 years later in 1849. After the island was repopulated in 1862, permission for a lighthouse was granted. The lighthouse was not begun until 1884, but was completed just a few months later. Since that time, Sanibel has been one of the best kept secrets for vacationers lucky enough to discover it. Through conservation, care and the love of the people who live, work and visit here, the Island maintains the rustic seaside charm which has made it the gem of the Gulf for the last 100+ years. Modern Day Sanibel Island hasn’t changed much. There are no traffic lights, and one main road. In addition, boutique shops and restaurants are alive with character. People are friendly, and it is one of the safest cities in America. Perfect for families, and pets are welcome at many hotels, condos and beaches. Furthermore, warm, sunny days are the norm, and the beaches are never crowded. The water is warm and calm, and the bottom is soft. Half of the island is conservation lands or sanctuaries. The Island also has activities for everyone. You can spend the day fishing, snorkeling or swimming. Collect shells from the beach or sunbathe. Go hiking, bike riding or kayaking. Watch live music while you eat at one of the great restaurants. Check out the Farmers markets, or visit the great art galleries. Whatever you like to do, you will find it on Sanibel Island.

    Hi, we are wanting to share a best-kept secret: our Florida timeshare on Sanibel Island this Luminaries Week Nov 29-Dec 6. Your Caribe Beach Resort efficiency unit is fully equipped and reasonably priced. With the beach close by your room, a large swimming pool, a Jacuzzi and beautiful grounds, Caribe will be a great vacation destination favorite for a solo adventurer, couple or family (with or without pets). Please go to Caribe Beach Resort Sanibel Island, FL additional photos.
    This pleasant efficiency can comfortably accommodate 2-4 guests, making it a good size for a single, couple or small family wanting a tropical getaway. The Murphy bed can sleep two and the sofa bed two as well. Refreshing decor and natural light make the small space feel very bright and airy, creating an environment that perfectly reflects this wonderful destination. You’ll find all the necessary comforts of home inside the unit’s delightful interior, such as wireless internet access, air conditioning, and ceiling fans to keep you cool and relaxed. When you’re not out enjoying the area's fantastic local restaurants or nature, prepare some delicious fresh seafood in the condo's fully equipped kitchen, complete with all the essential appliances plus a breakfast bar. Later, step outside to the private balcony where you can unwind and admire views of a tropical landscaped garden and glimpses of the gulf. You won’t find it hard to stay entertained here, as the flat screen TV comes equipped a DVD player and a wide variety of cable channels. One reason we love Sanibel Island is that the island is bike-friendly and Caribe Resort provides bikes and helmets complimentary. We often bike to Captiva Island and back -- a healthy bikeride! - and then glory in Captiva's gorgeous beaches. Sanibel's beaches are more natural, covered with shells. We find it pleasant to have BOTH experiences.
    Sanibel is a wonderful place to visit and live. Close enough to major airport and shopping and services, yet tucked away in a private sanctuary - the best of both worlds! When you’re ready to get out and explore the area, you won’t have to venture far! This studio condo is conveniently on the Gulf, beautiful Sanibel Beach. Enjoy wildlife just 5 miles away at the J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge, or nearby at the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife, Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum, and Periwinkle Park and Campground. Ask about Parrot Park! Get used to spending your vacation days relaxing at the pool - this is what vacation is all about! Before heading home, stop by the Bailey’s General Grocery Store to pick up whatever you may need back at the efficiency. Explore the area further by using the COMPLIMENTARY BICYCLES (Adult and child), renting kayaks, paddle boards, etc at several rental shops, which deliver equipment directly to you for ultimate convenience. Paved bike paths begin across the street from the resort and wind around the island, allowing you to easily navigate throughout the area. We enjoy biking into Captiva – it’s an awesome area and a good bike ride! If you’re in the mood for shopping, head to one of the area's many shopping centers for charming boutiques and galleries before stopping for lunch at one of the area’s terrific restaurants - a few local favorites include Sanibel Grill, Timbers, Traders, Sweet Melissa's, and Grandma Dot’s. Consider taking a boat to the historical Useppa Island or Cabbage Key, home of Jimmy Buffett's “Cheeseburger in Paradise.” Regardless of how you spend your time here, you’ll be happy you chose this lovely Sanibel Island vacation rental studio as your home-away-from-home!

  • This was a great and convenient place to stay on Sanibel! Super clean ans cute! The only thing I would say is make sure you read the description regarding where in the complex this unit is located. The photos make it appear closer to the water but it is actually across the road and a large parking lot. Not a bad walk at all, but a walk none the less.

  • Lori 's place is neat and clean. She has thought of everything. Great hostess. Easy to find. Her response was timely, and communication was easy.

    Lisa2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • I've stayed at quite a few vacation homes and cabins and these places were what I expected them to be. Based on the photos of this home I wasn't expecting much. I told my daughter to be prepared to stay at a simple, small home. Boy was I wrong. The pictures do not do justice to this home. Surprisingly this place offers lots of space with lots of sleeping options. The master bed room offered the most comfortable mattress and soft bed sheets. The home is nicely decorated with the beach theme throughout. Even the movies and books they have all had to do with the sea. Lori thought of everything. I would say the kitchen supplies are at the high end and she has everything you need to make a meal. We took advantage of all her amenities including the hot tub, kayaks and fishing rods. We were able to see the manatees and even a dolphin right off the dock. That was definitely the highlight of my daughter's trip. I personally just loved sitting in the backyard near the pier listening to the fish jumping out of the water. The only thing we hated about this place was having to leave it. I really regret having booked this place for only three nights. We definitely plan to return and stay for a longer period. Thanks Lori for all your help and for sharing your beautiful place with us.

    Mary2019-11-29T00:00:00Z

    Sarah2020-03-21T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved this place! Our child appreciated all the beach/pool toys, and we loved the quiet, clean, comfortable place with a wonderful kitchen and perfect location. Incredibly smooth and easy check-in and check-out. Dennis was so kind, helpful and responsive. We will definitely hope to be back in beautiful Sanibel!

    Eliot2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Really enjoyed this condo. A+ in all areas, especially location, location, location.

    Kathleen2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Dennis’ condo is a great choice for your visit to Sanibel. The beach and pool are very close. The condo is roomy and very inviting, Dennis has thought of everything to make his guests comfortable and welcome. We would highly recommend this condo for your Sanibel stay.

    Glenda2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, good beds, clean and in nice shape. This is a good choice

    Kenneth2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • Great place! Amazing location. Appreciate the number of towels and blankets. Games a nice touch. Pool was great. Quiet unit. Great place for my family to spend a couple days exploring Sanibel and the beach.

    Andrew2020-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • Dennis’s place is as advertised and worked very well for our family of five. Beach chairs, sand toys and board games were a nice touch. Excellent location on Sanibel. Easy walk to the beach and our kids enjoyed the pool too. Great nature trails nearby, bike trails are fun and market, shops and restaurants are also plentiful. We thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to the island! Thanks again!

    Charles2019-12-23T00:00:00Z

    Most guests love the serene atmosphere and the incredible beach around this unique location.
  • We had a really nice stay at Shah's place. Wonderful location, away from the hubbub of Sanibel and adjacent to a really great beach. It is really one of the very well oriented units relative to views and sunshine and privacy and air flow. Everything was very comfortable and the management was very responsive if we had any questions. It is very quiet in the evenings too. I really enjoyed it.

    Joan2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Great beach access and availability of canoes/kayaks and loaner tennis gear was nice. wish I had more time to relax/hang out at the property - but there was a lot to do in 4 days!

    John2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect location and a wonderful stay! Shah was a great host and we really enjoyed our time on Sanibel.

    Nick2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Really clean condo, with amenities and a nice location. Would stay again for sure!

    Ken2019-12-25T00:00:00Z
  • Great communication, great location!

    Mario2019-11-12T00:00:00Z
  • Pleasant place to stay. Reviews were very helpful and accurate. The unit had everything you would really need for your stay. Kitchen was well equipped for cooking, serving and storing food during the week. Deck was screened in but unfortunately does not keep the sand flies out due to their small size. Bug spray available at the clubhouse if needed. Coolers were available in the laundry. Beach toys, umbrella, cart and beach chairs available in the unit. We even were able to use the kayak from the clubhouse one morning and came very close to a family of manatee's in the river at the boardwalk. Our kids loved walking around during the day watching and catching lizards and putting their headlamps on at night looking for large toads around the complex. We even saw a tortoise along the walking path to the beach! The walk to the beach only takes minutes and there were plenty of shells everywhere if you enjoy searching or colleting them. If you have time and a vehicle it was worth it driving to captiva just down the road and the downtown area was very busy on the weekend. Would recommend to friends/family and would stay again in back in the area. Thanks, Shah!

    Joshua2019-11-05T00:00:00Z
  • Great location with a private beach entrance, beach chairs and umbrella included (along with a rolling cart thing that made the easy walk easier), plenty of silverware and cups and cooking utensils. The space in the apartment was much larger than anticipated. My wife and I had an amazing time here and really couldn’t think of a single thing to complain about. Might be back next year with a baby(Plenty of room)! Ha! Had a perfect week! Highly recommend! We’ll be back for sure 😊

    Jenny2019-10-19T00:00:00Z
  • The place has excellent location, waking distance to the beach. It was very clean and comfortable. Mr. Shah is very responsive to questions or concerns. Would gladly stay again in the future.

    This boutique Inn comprised of four separate Villas is located very close to the best beach on Sanibel, features wonderful Spanish Colonial architecture and is pet friendly.
    Each of our four spacious Villas is fully equipped to make your vacation stay comfortable and effortless. Each Villa offers over 1200 square feet of air conditioned living area and features two bedrooms and 1 ½ baths, fully appointed kitchens, separate living and dining rooms, two enclosed lanais, and a washer & dryer. We also provide TVs, DVD and stereo equipment, fresh linens, towels, bicycles, beach equipment, a gas barbecue and a hot tub free for your use. Our Spanish Colonial architecture is complemented by our extensive tropical landscaping. Featuring over forty different varieties of tropical plants and flowers and complete with a traditional courtyard with a six foot fountain. Depending on the season, you catch the exotic aroma of jasmine, magnolia or plumeria as you drift to sleep to the sound of water gently splashing in the fountain. In the morning help yourself to the bananas (over four different varieties) and coconuts. Play all day on the island - swimming, sunbathing, shelling, biking, birding, fishing and/or boating and retire to your comfortable Villa for the evening. Each Villa offers luxurious high quality bedding (king-sized beds in the master bedrooms) and fresh linens guaranteed to provide you with a restful night’s sleep after your busy day on the island.
    Our address is 764 Beach Road. You will also note that we are very conveniently located on the island - no Periwinkle traffic jams to deal with! If you are only visiting Sanibel for a short time you'll want to spend all of your time having fun (beach, bikes etc) and not stuck in the car. There are several nice restaurants in the area (one less than a block away) and the two major grocery stores are within biking distance (they also have a delivery service). There is limo and taxi service from the airport as well.
  • The included bikes and beach gear are a great bonus. Easy beach access, nice quiet neighborhood. The Manatees in the canal were a pleasant surprise. Couldn't be better!

    Dwight2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Spacious and very well located house a few meters from the beach. The master bedroom is superb and overlooks the garden, the second is less interesting but it does not matter if you are going with your children. The villa shares a garden with 3 other houses and overlooks a very pleasant canal where the manatees come to rest. Presence of tables, barbecue / plancha and jacuzzi in the garden. Beach equipment and bikes are available, which are very valuable on Sanibel. Finally, advice from restaurants and local addresses is appreciated.

    Pierre2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • This was a great spot for myself and my family. Lots of space and fabulous location. We saw manatees most days which was very cool! Very limited tv channels so plan to go out if you want to watch a game...

    Kelly2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • This location is hard to beat! Just a five minute walk to the beach and the lovely, tree lined walk is part of the experience. The free bikes provided were a real plus. Riding the flat paths of Sanibel is effortless and as much a part of the experience as walking on the beach. We had a car but a bike is all that’s really needed as everything is within a 20 minute bike ride. If you wish to try fishing there are plenty of rods and reels in the garage for your use. We loved the roominess. With the bedrooms upstairs I could get up early and have coffee without disturbing my wife who likes to sleep in a bit more than I do. Of coarse the beaches! We’ve been to Hawaii, and Mexico for the beaches but they don’t compare to the beaches on Sanibel. Being able to walk to the beach for sunrise and sunset makes the experience so much better. Finally, the friendly people on the island. EVERYONE seems so friendly. From the locals to the vacationers, somehow the laid back, friendly island atmosphere gets into everyone. If your considering Sanibel you won’t be disappointed and Dave’s place is a great place to experience it from

    James2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • We found The Villa the perfect place to stay. David was very thorough in documenting procedures and amenities available for our use during our stay, everything we might need. We can't wait to return!

    Susan2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful house and garden. Perfect with the bikes. Near the beach. Everything was nice and clean. Highly recomendable

    Helena2019-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • David’s villa was clean, spacious and had everything you would need for a vacation in Sanibel. It was one block from the beach and close to the restaurants and stores. David supplies bikes and beach chairs. The villa is on a canal where you see manatees and beautiful birds. We would definitely go back again.

    Bonnie2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • If you are able to arrive to the island a few hours before 9pm you will be able to get all the supplies and food you need. If you can’t, you will have to leave the island most likely to get some essentials.

    This is the way Sanibel used to be. A small cottage-condo complex of just 9 units on the beach side. #3 has one of the better views, facing out towards the Gulf of Mexico. Comes fully equipped. Just step out onto the sand, short stroll to the water..and enjoy. Fully cleaned and sanitized before each guest arrival.
    Beach cottage vibe---comes fully equipped with all linens and towels, beach chairs, umbrellas, two flat screens, wi-fi, fully equipped kitchen. Soaps, trash bags, t-paper, paper towels included. Heat, AC, ceiling fans. Just redecorated with all new furniture, queen bed, full sofa bed, artwork. Laundry room is the only shared space. Otherwise, total separation.
    West Gulf Drive area of Sanibel--considered to be the best area on the island. No high-rises, no commercial activity nearby. Very quiet area but convenient to the entire island. Bike paths thru-out entire island. Ding Darling, rec center, Shell Museum, shops, restaurants, galleries all within a 5 minute drive or a 10 minute bike ride.
  • So relaxing! You can hear the ocean from the cottage. Everything is super clean and comfortable. The beach is only steps from the cottage and we found it to be the best beach on the island. Amazing shells! I would give this location 6 stars if I could!

    Shannon2019-12-25T00:00:00Z
  • It was a very nice and cosy hideaway directly on the beach. The host was very friendly and the local agency very helpful with late night check in. Whenever possible: we will be back 🙂

    Petra2019-11-21T00:00:00Z
  • Great location for long walks in both directions and the shelling was awesome. It is so nice and close to the water. You can see the water from the screened in porch. The cottage is equipped with everything you need. There were lots of towels in the bathroom. Although it is small there are lots of hooks, plenty of shelves and closet space. Loved how the bathroom, though smaller has lots of shelves. The cottage is perfect for one or two, but even when I had visitors with 4 of us we managed well with the pull out sofa and shared all the closet and shelf space. There are plenty of blankets and pillows. I even did a 500 piece puzzle on the coffee table. Hope to go back next year. Love Sanibel and I loved this location!!

    Mary Jo2019-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic location, water views from the living room, right on the beach! Great stay, the beach was stunning and maybe a handful of other people all week long, truly paradise!! Exceptional sunsets right on the beach, great shelling and the peacefulness were spectacular! A great place to stay if you are looking for the real Sanibel beach experience!

    Christine2019-10-12T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful old time Sanibel cottage on beach. Cute updates and spotlessly clean. Very cozy. Great for a couple and a romantic vacation.

    Cynde2019-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • Overall fantastic stay! Will be staying at the White Caps again in the future!

    Kayla2019-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • Richard was fantastic. Very knowledgeable and friendly. Great communication. Location? Amazing. I would love to come back again if you will have us. This place is good for a couple and I bet if you had to could fit another one or two on the fold out couch, in a pinch. Near all grocery stores, short ride to Captiva. Washer dryer on site. Very cool! Loved it!

    Stephen2019-08-31T00:00:00Z

Short walk (or drive, if you prefer) to the beach, nice Tommy Bahama chairs are provided. Short 5-7 min walk to restaurants, shops and a convenience store. Only note is that the bedroom is located next to the elevator, so depending on the time / day it may be a little noisy if you're a light sleeper. The rest of the apartment was quiet and private. I recommend!

    Nellie2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful condo in a great location. Really enjoyed the quick walk to a wonderful, quiet beach and the bikes for moving around the island! The condo was clean and had everything we needed after long days outside. The view was stellar too!

    Ross2020-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • Great experience! We really enjoyed our stay! The bikes, puzzle, and shelling tools were excellent extras and a lot of fun. The location was perfect - right by downtown Captiva, the beaches, the restaurants, and the wave runner and kayak rentals. We will definitely be back soon!

    Uga2019-12-26T00:00:00Z

    Carter2019-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • Palmer quickly and politely responded to all questions and requests. Upon arrival I was greeted by an immaculate condo with lovely but comfortable decor. The condo had every amenity one could want including bicycles. I would highly recommend this condo and fabulous experience to anyone looking for a lovely, clean and serene place to relax and unwind.

    Tracey2019-11-28T00:00:00Z
  • Great communication every step of the way. Loved the location, but loved the cleanliness as well. Great stay!

    Amanda2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • Palmer’s place was the perfect getaway spot! We had never been to Captiva & fell absolutely in live with the town. His place is walking distance to great restaurants, amenities & the beach. (We were actually shocked at how close the beach was!) The pool area was immaculate & the entire place was quite peaceful. Palmer was incredibly quick to communicate & help us when we needed it! The added bonus of having a few beach chairs and an umbrella each day was fantastic. 10/10 recommend and will visit again!

    Rachel2019-11-07T00:00:00Z
  • Palmer’s place is the perfect little piece of paradise! The location on Captiva is perfect for the close to home getaway with a tropical feel. The bicycles that are including in the rental are highly recommended, a must to really expierience the local atmosphere!

  • Arlene was the perfect host! Our stay was nestled in a quiet corner of her beautiful home with views of canals, birds, vegetation and manatees! Her breakfasts were a surprisingly healthy way to start our day! Her own fresh fruits and special touches made us feel so welcomed. She and Jim went out of their way to suggest restaurants on the island as well as excursions far better than we expected. We only wish we had time to explore them all! A perfect reason to come back again, for sure! Thank you so very much, Arlene, for your kindness, hospitality and friendliness!

    Anita2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Very relaxing. Arlene was very helpful.

    Bill2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Arlene and Jim are truly super hosts! The house is on a canal with a beautiful pool and spa with gorgeous tropical landscape. Arlene and Jim serve a delicious continental breakfast poolside every morning with fresh native fruit. YUM! We fished off the dock and saw a Mother manatee with her baby swim by. We had a fabulous time and we plan to visit again.

    Michele2019-11-06T00:00:00Z
  • Arlene and Jimmy’s hideaway was perfect to rest and relax. They are wonderful and their hospitality is the best we’ve had on our travels.

    Karl2019-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • We are so happy that we found the wonderful flat in Pine Island, in the home from Arlene und Jim. It is in a very nice street on waterfront and very quiet. The wonderful Pool was near our door. Every morning we have a nice breakfast with fruits and cakes. It is really old Florida. We have rent a boat, and visit Sanibel it is perfect and easy. Matlacha is a nice place with Restaurant at waterfront, you must see it. Every day we watch pelicane, dolphins and manatees its great. We love it. All best for Arlene and Jim

    Marietta2019-10-22T00:00:00Z
  • Arlene and Jim’s place is a wonderful and relaxing retreat. Perfect for couples looking for a low-key vacation. The pool and hot tub onsite are great to relax, and would also provide a great diversion for families. Better yet are the two kayaks stored onsite by a local rental company - the only thing separating one from paddling with the dolphins and manatees seemingly always present in the adjacent canal is a quick phone call. We are lunch everyday at a different nearby establishment to which we would commute by kayak. Arlene and Jim themselves are the best Airbnb hosts we’ve ever encountered. Their attentiveness and availability for a quick conversation were great while still respecting our privacy. They were full of insight and advice for what to do locally and the delicious small breakfasts they set out every morning often had some homemade or fresh-off-the-property special touch. We would be happy to come back and spend more time with them in the future!

    Walt2019-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • We finished our 2 weeks Florida Trip here and spend four nights in this beautiful house. We can highly recommend this beautiful and very quiet piece of paradise. Arlene provided us with a lot of very useful tips to explore the region and Jim teaches me how to fish in the canal. We loved the discussion with them about our special "friend" and the nice breakfast at the pool. We always had our privacy and we could use the pool and the hot tub as long and as often we want. The rooms were very stylish and we loved the color scheme. If we come back to his region, we would love to stay again in this house. For us it was the best Airbnb experience we had so far. Thanks a lot Arlene and Jim, it was our real pleasure to stay with you.

    Peter2019-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful place to spend time in south Florida that isn’t just another overbuilt Mega paved city. St. James is a small town with friendly people (Arlene & Jim) to match! I discovered some of the wonders of the tropics such as cracking open fresh coconuts for myself (grown on-site) & then enjoying the fresh coconut/water, eating their organically grown bananas picked that day, spotting a pair of breeding bald eagles, taking trips to deserted islands to treasure hunt for seashells, swimming in their pool three times a day and letting my pain dissipate after a nightly hot spa soak. Try doing that in Disney. My only regret is that I’m not their neighbor! Thanks Guys!!

It's secluded atmosphere is a huge part of its charm.James City is located in Pine Island, Florida which is the largest island off Florida’s Gulf Coast. We fell in love with St. James City because it’s laid-back atmosphere and the people are very welcoming and hospitable. The island has three aquatic preserves, and acres of palm, tropical plants and fruit groves. The waters of Pine Island provide not only some of the finest fishing in Florida, but are a haven for birdwatchers and nature lovers. The home is located in a quiet neighborhood, great for walking, biking and enjoying the serenity of island life. St. We hope you enjoy your stay in this beautiful island paradise as much as we do.

  • Great place to stay. We liked the kayaks most. You can start with them at the house and have so much fun. Same with the bikes! Everything is superclean and so nicely decorated. Bed is gorgeous and offers a great view to the channel. And we loved to sit in the lanai looking at the pelicans. Definitely a place worth to stay

    Ulrike2019-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • You won’t be disappointed by this little piece of paradise. Anita has aptly earned her title of “Super host” and has thought of everything to make your visit a memorable one. The house is decorated in a very charming and fun, beachy feel. I’m still marveling at her color choices and whimsical accessories. The Kitchen was FULLY stocked. Plus, they provided fun recreational equipment from bikes to fishing poles to kayaks. We saw manatees right off their dock. The beaches of Sanibel and Captiva are about an hour and a half away and worth the drive for great beach walks and shell collecting. There’s also boat excursions there as well as fishing charters from the north end of Pine Island. St.James is a fun little community. Pine Island is tranquil and peaceful without all the tourism of Sanibel. The assortment of birds is amazing and we walked/rode through several of the wildlife preserves in the area. This was our first trip to SW Florida, but not our last!

    Kathy2019-11-27T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing find - cute and well decorated home with great hosts. Hope to take advantage of it again!

    Cara2019-11-23T00:00:00Z
  • Great space! Plenty to do on the island, or take a drive and do all of the amazing things SW Florida has to offer.

    Jessica2019-10-26T00:00:00Z

    Jeanette2019-06-08T00:00:00Z
  • This was a lovely home to spend a few quiet days near the water. We really appreciated having bikes, kayaks, and fishing poles available.

    Karen2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Great location and beach access. Very quiet, comfortable, and well appointed. Leslie was a pleasure to work with.

    Denise2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • You shouldn't give away any insider tips, because the chance that you can no longer book them decreases. If the opportunity presents itself, we will do it. The cottage from Leslie and Jim, both great people, completely convinced us. In my "AirBnB career" I have not seen many great objects like L&J's, and I can say that I have been in many. Great is the privacy just 3 minutes walk from a wonderful beach. The place on Sanibel is dreamy and very personal. A wonderful area. We didn't implement much of Leslie's tips, but we didn't miss the sunset from Causeway Bridge to Fort Myers. If you book this cottage, nothing will be missing. An oasis of relaxation and nature.

    Roger2019-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • Cottage and amenities were ready for our arrival. Multiple extras: for the beach, for breakfast. Well equipped kitchen. Beach decor very tasteful. Private location.

    Pat2019-10-23T00:00:00Z
  • Leslie was very responsive to any question. This is a perfect location for any family seeking a quiet and fun time in Sanibel.

    Isabel2019-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • Sometimes, you hesitate to tell others what you think of an accommodation, because you would like to keep it for yourself. That is the feeling we had, when we thought of leaving an impression of this fantastic beach house on Sanibel Island. We spent 5 days as two adult couples in this house, which at first appearance looks small but has all facilities you need. The house is abundantly stocked with all essential supplies as well as things you want to take with you to the beach. Speaking of which, the beach is but a five minute walk away. Imagine pelicans flying overhead, ospreys hunting, dolphins swimming close by, sunshine and cooling winds. There are bikes which can take you to the shops, other beaches and restaurants. Thank you Leslie for a fantastic vacation!

    Theo2019-05-02T00:00:00Z
  • First impression was OMG, a bottle of old vine Malbec and snacks just as we walked in the door.The cottage was impeccably clean. Kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans and all the spices to cook a fantastic Thanksgiving meal. The Sun bicycles provided were a dream to ride on the island . The beach was a few minutes walk. Would definitely recommend this cottage.

    Marilyn2018-11-27T00:00:00Z
  • Private, quiet, completely comfortable cottage. We loved our stay at the Sunny Shell Cottage and had everything we needed and more. The cranberry orange scones we're delish! Thanks Leslie!

  • My family had a lovely time at a nicely appointed condo with great views of the gulf. Really cute décor, great proximity to area restaurants and excellent location centrally located for biking around the island. Loved our stay and will return. Sanibel Siesta was a quieter condo community than others we have stayed in and I really enjoyed that. Nothing but the sound of the waves to lull you to sleep at night. Thanks for a great stay in one of my all-time favorite places!

    Sandy2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely beautiful, super clean island condo! We were blown away by just stepping right onto the beach. The ease of the parking garage & other amenities is fabulous. Definitely want to return with our daughter, son in law & grandkids. This Is Paradise! Thank You So Much!

    Tamara2019-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • WOW!!! That was our reaction when we walked into what appeared to be a professionally decorated condo that was beachy, tasteful, modern, creative and SPOTLESS. We thoroughly enjoyed dinners on the lanai as well as coffee in the am watching and listening to the waves come in. Christine was readily available, extremely accommodating and helpful. Loved the location. Great Stay! Will definitely be back.

    Catherine2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at Chris’s condo it was so nice and very close to the beach. I wish we could have stayed the rest of the week we will definitely be coming back. Thanks so much for letting us stay in your beautiful home!

  • Nancy’s place was just great! It is about 100 yards to the beach which was far better than we expected. It was perfect for two. Even though there wasn’t a stove we brought along an electric skillet and were able to have several nice meals. It was clean, stylish, reasonable, and best of all, allowed both of our large dogs, which is impossible to find on Sanibel. She had chairs, a beach umbrella, and other beach items that were a very nice addition. We would love to go back!

    Ainslie2020-05-07T00:00:00Z
  • Nancy was wonderful!! She was very helpful and accommodating. Great location close to the beach. We had a wonderful stay. Found a nice "bonus" item in the closet that came in very handy - a FAN. We will certainly call on Nancy again if we are in the area.

    Philip2020-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • Super easy check in and check out. Nancy was fantastic in terms of communication. Only two negatives are the very small shower and hearing the neighbors through the walls. 2 min walk to the beach. Thankful for the beach chairs! Would definitely stay here again.

    Matt2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • An exceptionally clean, cozy bungalow that feels homey. You can't see the beach from the cottage, but it's only a couple hundred feet to walk to the beach. The beach was huge and not at all crowded. Nancy responded to all our questions quickly and provided information about the area in a handy scrapbook. The cottage is furnished with dishes, a coffee maker and toaster in addition to a microwave and small frig so we could fix snacks and light meals. Nancy is an accommodating host who offered a cot for us to use. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

    Joni2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Nancy's place was in a fantastic location-only a 2 minute walk to the beach. The apt was clean, comfortable and welcoming. The apt. we stayed in (there were 3) was an efficiency with a sink and a microwave-we missed having a full kitchen more than we though we would. We would recommend to others! Thanks for a great stay!

    Tom2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • Great weekend getaway. Nancy was so easy to work with. Location perfect! Would book again.

  • Amazing host! Amazing place! Fantastic location! What more can I say? Go for it!

    Douglas2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • PURE PARADISE! We enjoyed our stay in the Love Bird cottage from the moment we arrived to the time we departed. The room boast of costal decor and comfort. The place felt very inviting and the grounds like you’re on your personal island. Definitely a place to stay if you are looking to escape or disconnect. What I enjoyed most about our stay was the proximity to the beach and lighthouse. The availability of the bicycles made our overall experience of the Island a success. We also enjoyed the short walk to the Lighthouse café and Pinocchio’s ice cream shop. Lighthouse’s blueberry hot cakes are amazing (request extra berry sauce, trust me! ) and I hear they have a coconut French toast that is out of this world, it’s just not on the menu. Blue Giraffe was one of our favorite restaurants while visiting. Kim was very resourceful in providing a list ahead of our stay of things to do and places to visit or eat. Thank you again! We look forward to coming back again!

There was plenty of space and they had an over abundance of beach chairs, towels, puzzles , books and tennis racquets. The beach is steps away and the pool is heated and clean. Nothing but good things to stay about our lovely vacation. We are grateful for them opening their home to us

  • Very nice house a short walk from the beach and the bay. We brought our kayaks and were easily able to put in at the docks and kayak on the back side of Captiva Island. We also enjoyed the short walk to the beach and the amazing shelling that you can always find on the beaches here. The house was well kept and clean with everything we needed for our stay and the hosts were very responsive to any messages.

    Stacey2019-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • This was our first visit to Captiva and it was fantastic! House was very nice, great location with awesome amentities. Short walk to the pool, tennis courts, beach, bay and restaurants. Green Flash was really good. The key lime pie at Key Lime Bistro is fabulous. Be prepared, the food on the island is expensive—stop and get some food/snacks at WalMart in Ft. Meyers on your way. Also, there is $6 toll for the bridge over from Ft. Meyers. We saw manatees at the bay and dolphins several times in the ocean. The sunsets are beyond beautiful. Nearby Sanibel has some good restaurants as well—the Sandbar and Doc Ford’s is worth a visit for dinner and Over Easy Cafe for breakfast (I left a menu in June’s binder of information ;). We would definitely stay here again. June is a fantastic host! Thank you for sharing your home!

  • If you want a memorable family vacation - this is the place! Our family, consisting of six adults, had plenty of room in the house. The house is clean and welcoming! If one decides to eat in, everything needed to make a meal can be found in the kitchen. The screened in back porch is great for sharing conversations & meals. Landscaping surrounding the back yard gives privacy & such a tropical feel. A coconut tree, and a flowering red tree are just a few of the beautiful things one sees from the screened in back porch (that porch was my favorite thing about the house). If one decides to go out for a meal - instead of eating in - it is nice not to have to drive anywhere. There are restaurants around the block, such as RC Otters, which has great key lime pie, within walking distance from the house . The hosts are thoughtful, and leave beach towels and access to needed beach items for guests to use. Air travel doesn't accommodate flying with some beach items - like beach chairs, coolers, etc... it is nice that the hosts let guests use their beach items! The walk from the house to the beach is not bad at all. The beach wasn't crowded & the sunsets were AMAZING. We found great shells and we saw dolphins in the water very close to the shore of the beach. We suggest using Jensen's Marina & taking a boat ride to Cabbage Keys for lunch. There are manatee in the bay, at Jensen's Marina! Another pleasant surprise, as we were riding in the boat, we saw dolphins leaping out of the water alongside the boat! The J.N "Ding" Darling Wildlife Refuge is worth checking out - one never knows what they will see there. We saw a 3 foot iguana! We also saw a smaller iguana from the back porch at the house! If you enjoy birds - you are in for a treat: Ibis, pelicans, and Osprey can be seen on the beach. What a week! Great place to get away to rest, to relax, and to make family memories! Oh - and the sunsets - priceless! I highly recommend Jim & June's place in Captiva!

  • The beach was great!

    Bailee2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our stay at South Sea Resorts. Our unit was in the Bayside Villas. Nothing fancy, but the condo was clean, spacious, had a lovely view of the bay (and the sunrise!) from a large screened-in porch, and we were pleasantly surprised that daily housekeeping was provided as we did not expect that to be the case. Laundry facilities were in the bottom floor of our building; bring quarters for the machines. The free trolley transportation throughout the resort is very handy and accessible with a short walk from the Bayside Villa unit. The huge main pool area (with 3 separate pools) is beautiful and includes a tiki bar, poolside delivery, restaurant, separate pizza/ice cream restaurant, and a well-stocked Ships Store with everything you might need from snacks to gifts to medicines, plus freshly made grilled sandwiches to order (and an outdoor patio area looking out on the marina where you can eat them). There are plenty of umbrellas for shade, and the staff is very accommodating. If you drive to the larger pool area, parking is available in a nearby lot, especially if you arrive prior to 10:30/11 am. (After that, it can get full, and the trolley would be your best bet.) There is a pretty walkway along the water that goes around the golf course. The golf course offered a very reasonably-priced "3 consecutive days of golf" package. Captiva restaurants we enjoyed off-site were The Mucky Duck (gorgeous place for sunset-watching, delicious mahi mahi and steak) and Keylime Bistro (with live music from noon to closing). Sanibel restaurants we enjoyed included Cips and Island Cow. Note that the drive from South Seas into Sanibel is pretty slow! Also, to get from the resort to the Ft Myers airport takes about 1 hour 15 min., depending on traffic. There is a $6.00 toll (cash only) that you must pay each time you enter Sanibel from Ft Myers. (No charge when you go to Sanibel from Captiva.)

  • We had stayed at the South Seas Resort in the past and it was always a wonderful experience, and this time was no exception! Booking with Victoria was easier than doing so through the resort and we had all the access and amenities as if we had. Highly recommend!

    Robin2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • The South Seas Resort is a great place! This one bedroom condo is a perfect base from which to enjoy Captiva Island’s beautiful beaches and the resort’s many amenities.

    Judith2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • As advertised. The condo was clean and serviced daily. Overlooks the tennis courts so best for tennis enthusiasts. There’s a small and quiet pool, which is mostly shady until late afternoon in December, next to the tennis courts. A really beautiful and quiet beach, Starbucks and a few other shops are 5-7 minutes walk away. Most Captiva restaurants are 15 minutes walk away. It’s a trolley ride to more lively pools and restaurants at the far end of the resort. Our kids loved the water slides (which will be closed for much of January 2020 for renovation - also kids need to be 4 ft+ to use the slides). The check-in at the main resort reception was slow, and we waited for ages for food from the pool restaurant. But the pizza restaurant Scoops N’Slices next door to the pool restaurant was far quicker and better value. The high-end restaurant next to the resort marina is very nice. Kids’ New Years events were lively and well organized. We enjoyed our stay here.

    Julian2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Great spot! Close to restaurants, shops, beach, and all pools. It’s awesome that you get to use the amenities of the entire resort while staying at Victoria’s spacious condo. We will return!

    Roxana2019-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • The condo is beautifully furnished and a short walk to the pool and beach. All beach gear needed was provided, and the beds are very comfortable. We enjoyed sitting on the screened porch. Public beach access is right next to the unit, but noise and crowds were minimal.

    Debbie2019-06-29T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay. The view of the gulf was unexpectedly good from the room. The photos do not capture this. Efficient check-in and check-out. Bathrooms were a little bit small for our liking, but the rest of the place was a good size. Great proximity to one of the least crowded and best beaches on the island. It’s right on the paved bike trail that circles the island, so we started each day of the week bicycling to breakfast at OEC. If you’re not into biking everywhere, everything you need is within a 5 minute drive, including excellent dining, a general store, a small cinema, and a liquor store. We didn’t go off of the island at all. Would definitely stay again.

    David2019-06-15T00:00:00Z

    Sanibel Island is recognized as one of the world’s best beaches. It is also known as one of the best family getaway locations for island vacations. The island is very close to the mainland, but it feels like another world. Gentle aquamarine waters of the Gulf of Mexico, golden sand and warm sun hold sway throughout the year. Sanibel is 12 miles long and 4 miles wide, and is famous for the world-class shelling beaches which stretch along the coast. The unique geographical orientation from east to west makes the beaches perfect for collecting shells from the Gulf of Mexico. With no traffic lights, neon or high-rises, Sanibel has an authentic old-world Island charm. It is unlike anything else in The United States and a Sanibel Island vacation is a dream. The Sanibel-Captiva Barrier Islands are a relatively new geological feature. It was formed within the last 6,000 years – a geological blink of an eye. The islands formed as a result of siltation and accretion, as sand was pushed onto the bedrock forming the sea floor at the edge of the mainland. Nearly half of the 12,000-acre island is designated for conservation and preservation. This is most notably in the form of the J.N. “Ding” Darling Wildlife Sanctuary, which is the largest undeveloped mangrove sanctuary in the United States. Sanibel Island has been continuously inhabited since at least 500 B.C.E, first by the Calusa Indians, then by European settlers after it was first “discovered” by Ponce De Leon in 1513. Legend has it that Ponce De Leon named the Island “Santa Isabella” after Queen Isabel while searching for the “Fountain of Youth.” In 1523, after two years attempting to establish a permanent colony, and searching in vain for the secret of eternal youth, Ponce de Leon was struck by an arrow and gravely injured in a battle with a Calusa raiding party. The Spaniards abandoned their colony in defeat and retreated to Cuba, where De Leon died from his wounds. Other legends claim the Island was named by the first mate of the famous pirate Gasparilla, after his beautiful lover Sanybel, whom he had left behind in Spain. The first known appearance of a named location on the island is from a map dated from 1765. The map was labeled Puerto de S. Nibel. Furthermore, the historic lighthouse is located at Point Ybel, derived from the original name, Santa Ybel. Sanibel is the perfect backdrop for stories of pirates and buried treasure. Many colorful and interesting characters have made the island their home. the first modern settlement on Sanibel, or “Sanybel” as it was known at the time, was established by the Florida Peninsular Land Company in 1832. The colonists abandoned Sanibel just 17 years later in 1849. After the island was repopulated in 1862, permission for a lighthouse was granted. The lighthouse was not begun until 1884, but was completed just a few months later. Since that time, Sanibel has been one of the best kept secrets for vacationers lucky enough to discover it. Through conservation, care and the love of the people who live, work and visit here, the Island maintains the rustic seaside charm which has made it the gem of the Gulf for the last 100+ years. Modern Day Sanibel Island hasn’t changed much. There are no traffic lights, and one main road. In addition, boutique shops and restaurants are alive with character. People are friendly, and it is one of the safest cities in America. Perfect for families, and pets are welcome at many hotels, condos and beaches. Furthermore, warm, sunny days are the norm, and the beaches are never crowded. The water is warm and calm, and the bottom is soft. Half of the island is conservation lands or sanctuaries. The Island also has activities for everyone. You can spend the day fishing, snorkeling or swimming. Collect shells from the beach or sunbathe. Go hiking, bike riding or kayaking. Watch live music while you eat at one of the great restaurants. Check out the Farmers markets, or visit the great art galleries. Whatever you like to do, you will find it on Sanibel Island.

As far as the beach is concerned, the unit is located only a matter of feet from the beach, allowing guests to enjoy either the tranquility and hidden beauty of the bayside or the wonder any of the esteemed Captiva beaches surrounding South Seas in style on my bikes or on foot with the beach cart. I also provide free parking if you decide to rent a golf cart or bring a car. Also included in the rental is use of many amenities at the Bayside Villas complex, such as a pool/hot tub/lanai facility, beaches, bikes, paddle board, fishing gear, grill and cooking area. Also less than a five minute walk to access locally renowned South Village Rum Bar and Grille Doc Fords, in addition to downtown Captiva Village where one can enjoy great dining at the Bubble Room, Keylime Bistro, Mucky Duck, and more! No need to drive! Guests are also welcome to use our member guest passes at the nearby SANIBEL recreation center, featuring an Olympic sized pool, tennis, basketball, spin classes, yoga, and more. Included with unit are: 1) Four Trek Bikes- We just purchased new top end Trek "Elektra" beach cruisers 2) Longboard 3) Beach gear- Beach dolly, fishing rods, longboard, coolers, chairs, umbrellas, beach towels, and more! 4) Captiva "Sunny Isle Adventures" shuttle 5) Designated underunit parking 6) Access to fantastic Bayside Villas pool, hot tub, lanai area, and grills. Access to Beach Villas pools across, as we also have units in this complex. 7) Shell identification books, tools for shelling, and shell cart 8) Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Amazon Alexa, Premium Cable, Free Internet 9) Pack and Play Crib for infants
    The home is located within the famous South Seas Plantation. In our biased opinion the most beautiful location in all of the Southeastern United States. It is located within the Bayside Villas complex, in the Bayside 5000 building. It is just steps away from the beach, downtown Captiva, and the north end of South Seas at Redfish Pass.
  • What a great place to stay to get away from all your worries! Great location and the sunrise views from the unit are unmatched. Owner Palmer was easy to reach and extremely accommodating. If you’re going to stay in Captiva, there’s no better place than South Seas Resort with its beach and marina access, including all the other amenities just outside your door. It’s been 18 years since visiting San-Cap and forgot how glorious of a location it is.

  • This was our first time to Captiva and it was wonderful. The condo was very clean and fresh with a beautiful view of the water. Everything we needed to have a perfect beach day was provided- chairs, umbrellas, towels, cooler, and even a cart to push it all in! There were plenty of towels, linens, dish, and cooking ware. The pool was great as well! My family of four enjoyed our quick spring break weekend and would recommend Palmer’s place anytime. He was very through with instructions and was quick with responses. Thank you again for having us, we will be back!

  • Palmer and this home are both first-rate! He responded instantly and kindly to all requests for information. We especially appreciated Palmer’s recommendation of the Sanibel Rec Center where we found excellent spin classes and outstanding equipment. We also appreciated the well-stocked kitchen, beautiful furnishings and beach chairs that came in handy at the ocean! Anywhere on Captiva will be pricey, but Palmer’s place was worth the cost, to be a short walk to the ocean and also have views of the inner waterways.

  • This was a great location. The condo was clean and nicely decorated. Palmer was readily available and communicative. He accommodated our reservation very last minute. Having bikes available for our use was a bonus! Great view of the sunrise from the porch.

  • An awesome place to stay. We had morning coffee on the screened in balcony and watched the sunrise on the bay each morning. My wife and I fell in love w/Captiva and couldn't have asked for a better vacation. Would recommend Palmer's place to anyone who asked. Beautiful condo. Great location. And, a great host.

  • Palmer's place is very nice! Great location and the bay view is splendid especially at sunrise! The kitchen is well equipped. The decor throughout is very pleasing - walls and decos. Palmer provided local information pamphlets as well as board games and a nice collection of books. Great touch! Bed was very comfortable and it was convenient to have two full bathrooms. Palmer was an attentive host responding quickly to my questions about the condo and the area. Thank you Palmer and Cat for a great experience at Captiva!
