Do you like fishing? You'll be amazed at the big fish you'll catch right off the dock. How about a tournament-class fishing trip? (you're in some of the world's most productive fishing waters). If you like golf, you're just a few hundred yards away from a championship 9-hole, par-27 course that winds along the Gulf of Mexico, offering water views from nearly every hole. If you'd prefer to relax in a private swimming pool, there's one waiting for you. How about a bicycle excursion on a paved path running through one of the world's foremost nature preserves? They're all yours for the asking.

Long a vacation haven for families as well as romantics, Sanibel Island offers the slow pace of island life with just enough fabulous amenities to make it unparalleled. Visitors and residents alike choose whether to spend their days biking along protected bike paths, observing wildlife in refuges (and right at home!), attending cultural events, enjoying fabulous fresh seafood at one of the many island restaurants — the list goes on and on.

Captiva Island may be connected to Sanibel by a bridge, but in essence it's another world. Though both islands are delightfully distinct, Captiva was also voted among "Best North American Islands" by Conde Nast. Any of the following words could be used to describe Captiva and all would be correct: upscale, charming, quirky, exclusive, wonderful.

New Experiences, New Friends, New Adventures


Captiva sunset as seen from the beachfront villa Captiva is defined by its village area, proximity to both Gulf and Bay, fabulous views and the ability to walk to different activities. Every service you can imagine is available, from massage at home to family portraits on the beach. The shopping is outstanding. Captiva is also blessed with an abundance of great restaurants ranging from family favorites to romantic bistros. Or you can make your own meals in your own fully-equipped kitchen.

Captiva's beach is front and center for sunset, every single night. The views you will see from your vacation condo are unparalleled photographic masterpieces. Stay indoors, stroll along the pier, explore the breakwall, or just stroll into town. But be sure to get out on the water — the out-islands are just a short boat ride away, and sailing, fishing, shelling, parasailing and kayaking are all available.



Your Captiva Beachfront Villa is in the Heart of it All


It starts with the amenities. Your waterfront view of the Gulf of Mexico is spectacular. You have a completely-furnished villa with a fully equipped kitchen, screened lanai for insect-free comfort, telephone, stereo, and a washer/dryer in the building.

Equipment is provided right in the building (our beach equipment storage room is located directly below the condo with chairs, umbrellas, toys, etc). A snack boat anchors most days right at the beach. Rental bikes can be delivered right to your door.

Captiva Island is well known for its excellent sea shells Captiva and Sanibel are considered to be two of the world's best beachcombing spots. It's not uncommon to find rare and unusual seashells on either island. Attractions include The Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum, Everglades Day Safari, Sanibel/Captiva Conservation Center, and Sanibel Lighthouse, not to mention the "Ding" Darling Nature Reserve (see below). Captiva has many fine shops and restaurants, as does Sanibel. Dining is world-class, offering some very famous restaurants, some with daily entertainment. You're also liable to run into some celebrities in your travels about the village.

Wildlife Abounds in and Around Captiva


The "Ding" Darling Wildlife Refuge on nearby Sanibel Island is probably the most well known wildlife destination in the area. The refuge consists of over 7,000 acres of mangrove estuary, populated with large resident flocks of neo-tropical wading birds and migrating waterfowl, as well as alligators, otters, raccoons and even an American crocodile.

Captiva is visited by hundreds of bird species, some nesting on the shoreline. Protected birds like Plovers have been spotted nesting in North Captiva. Other birds include Bald Eagles, Osprey, Terns of many varieties, Roseate Spoonbills, Wood Storks, Kingfishers, Black Oystercatchers, Skimmers, Brown Pelican, White Pelican, Great Blue Herons and many more.

Captiva Island abounds with pelicans, osprey and many other birds Manatees can be found in these waters. In fact, Pine Island Sound is a traditional stomping ground for Florida's manatees. Manatees spend most of their time feeding and resting. They graze for food along rivers, coastal bottoms and the water's surface. Manatees have been known to hold their breath for as long as 20 minutes, but usually surface every 5 minutes to breathe.

Friendly dolphins abound in the seas surrounding Captiva. They regularly swim right up to the docks. A Dolphin Watch and Wildlife Cruise is the perfect family outing. There is nothing more exciting than to see these beautiful marine mammals jump in the boat's wake. Visit secluded Florida state park beaches that are only accessible by boat. Most tours feature food, drinks, even live music. You'll also spot many of the birds that make Southwest Florida so special.
