Area Information
Our Captiva's relaxing getaway is about a 45-60 minute drive from Fort Myer's Southwest Regional International Airport, 1+ hour drive from Naples and 2+ hours from Tampa, Fort Lauderdale and Miami.

A short walk to Sanibel's quaint Santiva Village and Blind Pass where the outdoor action is within easy reach! Every guest is pleasantly surprised. If shelling, body surfing, fishing, and sunbathing is too tame, take a short walk or a minute's drive to Sanibel's Santiva Village offering rental boats and kayaks, sightseeing & shelling charters/bait shops, sport fishing; restaurants; grocery; souvenir shops and more. Adventurous guests will find savings left over for parasailing, jet skiing and even antiquing, just a quick drive to Sanibel's Ding Darling national wildlife refuge, and Captiva's historic village.

Coquina Cottage is about location. Captiva's first beach front cottage is about the view, salt air and the balmy breezes. Mostly, Coquina is about fun in the sun with Captiva's gorgeous beach right at your feet!

What a wonderful, relaxing vacation. My children and I have a fabulous time. If it's unwinding that you're looking for this is the place for you! You can enjoy kayaking on the gulf, shelling on the beach, relaxing in the hot tub or just taking a siesta in the hammock. There are so many ways to enjoy this secluded and tranquil cottage. The kitchen is fully stocked so you can prepare all your meals and never have to leave your 1/2 acre of paradise. Pack light as the efficient washer and dryer is very handy. The staff is very friendly and extremely accommodating. Tommy in Ohio

Fantastic Week

We had a fantastic week, the cottage was perfect for us as always! Thank you for having us again :-)

Ellen from MO

Starting a great new year!

We started out the new year in your home and what a great start it was. We have never had the priviledge of being so close to the beach for a vacation! We felt so safe and private. We have 7 littles and the two youngest would even run around naked sometimes. In the chaos of the season on this island, we felt like we were the only ones here when we stayed at your home, you provided everything we needed and the your gardener was very friendly. Thank you for allowing us to stay.

Rhonda and family from IL

"Lots to see"

We had high hopes for this trip and our hopes were met. We spent lots of time at Ding Darling and other day trips such as to Cayo Costa. Mike went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable and that we got to see lot of great birds. This morning the dolphins are really busy out from here. Hope to come again.

Tom and Gail from MO


We had an amazing stay in your Cozy Cottage! We don't want to go home!
We had the most romantic and perfect wedding on the beach at sunset. We would not have picked a more beautiful spot. We hope to come back to make some more wonderful memories. We are so thankful we found this place!

Kelly and Crystal from KY


Once we arrived, there was no need to leave. Everything is right here. I didn't even mind to turn 60 :-)

Donette and David from NC

This is our second time returning to Coquina, first for our wedding 3 years ago, and now for my mom's 60th birthday. Your name never disappoints, from the luscious gardens to all the amenities. We will certainly be back. Thank you for everything.

Casey from NC


What a lovely treasure... Coquina Cottage!
Just what I needed.
Thanks to all who contribute to making this place so special.

We had such a wonderful time and this will be the most memorable time at the beach for both of us.
This cottage is so cozy and warm that we felt at home.
We thank you for your hospitality and kindness.
Best regards,

Dolly and Lis from FL.

The wine was excellent.


We really appreciated being able to spend time on the beautiful island of Captiva! We live minutes from the causeway bridge and decided to rent the cottage for a weekend away from home. We had a wonderful time, the property was very quiet and secluded and we enjoyed relaxing on the porch watching the birds and enjoying the amazing view. We are so thankful to be able to enjoyed a bit of paradise, we hope to one day own a home on the beach just like this. We hope to be back soon!!!

Paul, Erin and the dogs from Florida


What a fun spot! Can't beat beach front with all the great outdoor spots to hang out. Best of all, we could bring our furry friend, Roxy, we had a blast!!!

Kimberly and Charles from FL

What a wonderful vacation.... worth every penny!!! I brought my 3 children for a long awaited family vacation, we were NOT disappointed :-) We enjoyed the kayaks everyday and had tons of fun fishing from the kayaks early in the morning, enjoyed the Netflix and there are many games in the drawer upstairs, lots of shelling, we can't wait to make a custom lamp with the shells we found to forever remember our trip. *** Go to the beach late at night and star gaze!!! *****
Thank you Mike and crew for having such a wonderful cottage to share with others, we loved it.

My sister and I had an amazing time up here, our dad & brother took the downstair unit, it was one of the best family vacation we've had in a long time. Great location, homelike full of amazing amenities. The week went so quickly, we don't want to leave!! We just were getting started.
Thank you for a wonderful stay, and to the next visitors, ENJOY!!!:-)

Tom and Family from OH


We found a place we didn't know we were looking for. Thanks very much!
The call of the "Heron" was what lead me here, and my hunch was right! The setting here is serene and peaceful, which allowed us to be especially inspired through clay art and painting during our stay. The luscious garden has a magical quality and we've been enjoyed walking to i each day. Both the sunsets and our host hospitality have been outstanding!!!! Thank you, we would love to return.

Derry and Rick from FL

Randy was a wonderful host. We enjoyed his kindness and vast knowledge of the plants. We love it here at Coquina Cottage. The gardener was incredible! Accommodating and polite.
The 2 weeks were perfect here. Just a lovely setting + great vacation had by all of us. Many thanks to all!!

Kath and Greg from Texas

Thank you so much for having such a beautiful property, you have thought of everything needed for our beach stay!

Coquina Cottage and the weather were heavenly; the amenities superb with Yin and Yang scattered everywhere about the property. Tonight is our last walk on the beach, soak in the hot tub and view of the sunset. We are sad to leave bur are planning to return with our children and "grands".
Mike, We enjoy our conversation with you on the beach and wish you continued good health. And last but not least, to the gardener, specially thank you for coming to our rescue on more than one occasion. PARADISE FOUND!!!

What a beautiful Cottage. We enjoy our visit and hope to return soon!

Judy,Glenda,Hayden & Hannah from Texas

A much needed vacation from the Mid-West winter! Best spot on Captiva for a sunset! The owners were great hosts. Best meal and night of dancing was at Traditions on West Gulf Drive. Fishing was great! I caught 10 different species during our stay. Jill painted many nice sea scapes from the upstairs balcony for us to remember our week in paradise. We will return!!!

Greg and Jill from Orion, IL

If there was ever a time that we needed to land in a perfect place, this was it. We are really happy and looking forward to our revisit in a few months.
