There is certainly nothing at all like a stunning shell sitting delicately alongside other keepsakes on a bookcase or table to remind you of a great beach vacation. Take your next vacation on Captiva Island, and your shell collection may grow also big for any single location. An incredible vacation on Captiva Island begins with a good rental house, villa, or condo, right here are some concepts for you personally to mull more than while you make some shelf space. You can rent a quaint beachside cottage, or look to the skies in a luxurious condo.
All levels and styles of Captiva Island vacation rentals will come equipped with at least the basics – full furnishings, linen service, functioning kitchens, plus more space and privacy than a standard hotel room. Check out this site and take note of all the locations and amenities from which you can also choose. You can always look to Sanibel Island, considered the “Big Sister” to Captiva Island, for vacation rentals also. Plus, the list of amenities in either location may make you sit back and realize “Hey, I’m going on vacation. I deserve some special treatment.” Private pools and hot tubs, designer decor, gourmet kitchens, balconies, and patios with stunning views, just a few of the many desirable amenities you’ll find in a Captiva Island rental home, cottage, or condo.
This ecologically preserved island situated on Florida’s Gulf Coast is only four miles long and about a half-mile wide, but there is plenty to do here besides shelling. Fishing, of course, is big here. Tarpon, Snook, Sea Trout, and Redfish are plentiful. Go jet skiing, sailing, parasailing, kayaking, you name it if it involves big water, and you can do it on Captiva Island or Sanibel Island. Onshore, there’s golf and great little shops for picking up a few treasures. The “Ding” Darling Natural Wildlife Refuge and the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation Center offer really interesting programs and insight into the history and ecological preservation of the island.
With all the sea creatures and fish living in the surrounding waters, you will imagine that there are several seafood restaurants to check out, especially if you come up empty-handed on your fishing excursions. If you do manage to pull in a few keepers, having a fully equipped kitchen in your vacation rental home or cottage will come in handy. Fresh fish and a fine glass of vino on the deck of your Captiva Island vacation rental home. A sunset. The sound of the rolling tides. It doesn’t get much better than this. Captiva Island is a barrier island that is east-west oriented, and those tides help create a natural “scoop” for capturing shells. Take a few homes on your next trip. Just make sure you have room for them.
