Area Information
Have you ever dreamed of being on a tropical island, your toes in the soft white sand, an expansive beach, swaying coconut palms, lush tropical foliage and beautiful crystal blue water. Imagine watching the pelicans and herons fish for their dinner, collecting “treasures from the sea”, pastel colored seashells, while the sandpipers scurry along the surfs edge.

Sanibel Island has everything one could wish for…excellent restaurants, accommodations, golfing, tennis, fishing, boating, shopping, bike paths, canoes, theatrical productions, the renowned J.N. “Ding Darling” National Wildlife Refuge & Bird Sanctuary. Since 1884 Point Ybel Lighthouse has guided seafarers to Sanibel Island’s shores.

Come and enjoy a taste of the old historic Sanibel! A hidden gem within Sanibel, White Caps has only 8 cottages settled near the Gulf of Mexico. These quaint bungalows are a very rare find on the island, which make them so unique and beautiful. Small pets are permitted too. We hope you find White Caps # 2 to be your haven away from home!

We have been coming to Sanibel for years. This our first stay at White Caps. It was everything and more than we expected. It was perfect for our black Lab as well.

As comfortable as being at home. All the conveniences, comfy bed and steps to the beach. Loved getting up early every morning to have my morning stroll and shell search on the beach!

White Caps #2

September 15, 2014

We spent a great week at White Caps #2. Hopefully, we will be able to return there next year. The cottage is very cute, and we found everything to be functional and very well equipped. Our only complaint was that there was remodeling being done in #1 that started early every morning and lasted all day--sort of interrupted our peaceful mornings and any time we were in the cottage. We had a great visit!

Owner's reply:

I apologize for the noise. & inconvenience. Renovations are difficult at any time but with remodeling comes improvement for future guests at white caps. Sanibel regulations mandate remodeling be done in off season time which is normally late summer / fall

What a very nice place to stay!!!

September 1, 2014

We had a lovely time at White Caps #2. The house is beautifully decorated and clean. The kitchen is fully equipped. We cooked all of our meals right there at the bungalow. The king size bed was very comfortable. The beach location was absolutely wonderful. We were so close, 50 yards from the beach. The sunsets were stunning. The best part is that we were able to bring our pets with us. We have a golden retriever and a yellow lab and they loved the beach and swimming I the Gulf. Dogs are allowed on the beach but must stay on leash. It was tough playing Frisbee with our lab but we did the best we could with a longer leash. The house is small so anymore than four people, it may be difficult. But it was perfect size for my husband and I and the two dogs. There is a movie machine at Baileys where you can rent movies for $1.00 each. We enjoyed some good movies at night after a long day on the beach. We found the most beautiful shells. So many shells, so little time :) We will definitely come back to stay at White Caps #2.

The Dog Days of Summer

My wife and I and our two Australian Shephard friends had a great time at "White Caps" cottages. The cottage is immaculate and a short 30 second walk to the beach. We highly recommend this rental as it is right on the beach and close to all outdoor activities and restaurants. Our dogs felt right at home and we all loved going down to the beach at night to look at the stars. Beach has a ton of shells for you shell collectors but I do not recommend any snorkeling on this island as the mangroves cloud the water considerably. This place even had bikes for renters and laundry which was convenient. Highly recommended and a pleasant stay.

At first, we thought the cottage was too small, but to my husband's and my surprise it was perfect. Very clean, comfortable, and close to the beach. We would certainly stay there again.

We wanted to get away and relax, read, walk on the vegetables for a week. At White Caps we easily accomplished just that. Despite a very rainy week, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Our accomodations at #2 were comfortable and the lovely decore made us feel at home. I would highly recommend a vacation here again. The beautiful thing was we didn't even have to leave Lee County!
