This location is one of the most relaxing vacations I’ve had in a long time. Captiva is a beautiful, quiet place in July, and we literally had the beach to ourselves every day. The sunsets just got better each night and the restaurants were accommodating and the food delicious.
The house itself is a little tired. It’s an older beach cottage, which we prefer as opposed to a condo/multi home stay, but with a few remediations, this place could be a gem. You see the water from the home, which was awesome. The beach is literally across the only road on the island. We were happy to see that homeowner upgraded the couch from the photos online. If you are looking for a new home with posh accommodations, this is not the place for you; It’s quite rustic. There were a few newer beach chairs and a few older ones and two umbrellas, which is great if you are flying in from out of state like we were. We have teenage children, so the separate guest quarters was great for my husband and I to have some quiet space...it is separate from the home, so it is probably best for families with older children. Three properties away is a resort with kayaking, jet ski and boat rentals. There were three different restaurants on this property that were also open to the public. A little further “downtown” is another boat marina to rent boats and fishing gear, which we used very day to fish right from the beach. (You’ll need a Florida fishing license, which Jensen’s marina can facilitate.)
This was really a great place to unplug and completely relax without the hustle and bustle of typical beach towns!
We couldn't have said it better. Thank you for the review. We are so happy you had a chance to relax and unplug. That's island time!
Lovely spot - perfect house for us.
The cottage was great - super view to the Gulf. Great front deck for coffee, breakfast and dinner with a good gas grill there as well. The folks at Kingfisher were very helpful with the little questions we had. Only issue we had was too little (1bps) throughput on the internet. May need to investigate the line between the street and the house to clear this up. The area around us was great with good spots to eat and shop and the beach out front was like having the coast to yourself.
Dear Constance, Thank you for your stay and your kind words. We are looking forward to host you in Sabibel again. - Kind Regards, Kingfisher Vacations
Nice location - uncomfortable interior
The location is perfect. Easy walk across the street to the beach and close to Captiva restaurants and shops. Unfortunately the furniture has not been updated in what appears to be many years. I had read a review prior to booking about the kitchen and agree it is not necessarily a kitchen that a cook would love but it certainly had everything we needed. The couches are old with existing stains and uncomfortable. One should not book expecting a proper rest as the beds are extremely uncomfortable and consider bringing your own pillows. We slept in the detached room and the shower grout was clearly original, dirty. The property is called “Charm” which fits the exterior and not the interior. This not a property I can recommend with the exception of beach access.
We are loyal VRBO customers and this is the first time we felt the property was not as advertised.
Thank you for the review. We feel it is mostly fair and accurate. We would agree that the couch is dated and in need of replacement. Beds can be tricky as everyone has a bit of a different preference and this is the first complaint on them but, I suspect, they may be older like the rest of the furniture so we will reach out to the owner in the hopes of updating them. We will be delivering new pillows for all the beds this week. We are happy you found the location perfect. Thank you. I will update this post as we work with the owner on updating the beds and couch.
Lovely little cottage with beach access, bring your own everything.
My family is from Florida, we grew up in Florida, as a group and individually we prefer a rustic beach house compared to the newer ostentatious houses being constructed. This place was perfect for that. Gorgeous views from the front deck, great beach access, the rooms were comfortable, and we enjoyed our thanksgiving here. We were a family of 6 Adults, and 2 kids, This would probably make better accommodations for less people, although we really did enjoy it, I would definitely come back. I would enjoy it more if the kitchen was more usable, and they provided some basic supplies.
Cons Supplies: I didn't notice in the listing that it said ONE trash bag is provided. Good thing my sister did, same with toilet paper in the bathrooms, ONE roll provided. If we're spending 3K for a week rental, is an extra $20 in supplies being provided really cutting into your costs?
Cons Kitchen: the kitchen is small and dated, with the worlds smallest dishwasher. We were provided with 2 dish soap tabs, my sister brought extras, but hers didn't seem to work in the machine as well, and would often result in crusty dishes, which were also in the cabinet from previous guests with the same issue. It was annoying to have to rerun the washer.. The stove has a knob that has been snapped off, so one of the burners is unusable, it's very old, bent up, and crusty.
Cons Washer/Dryer: It's a very small washer and dryer. It worked and everything was fine. I don't think the lint filter in the dryer had been cleaned in recent years and looked like a fire hazard about to happen, it's in a weird place in the back of the dryer. One reviewer said they could only wash 2 towels at a time, and I believe that, however they were probably beach towels.
Attached room with bathroom: this was the room my husband and I stayed in. It was strange having the AC unit in the bathroom, but it worked great. We had to call because the toilet was flooding out the bottom where it connects to the ground and the shower was backing up. Someone came and fixed it. Slight inconvenience. then had to wash all the toilet water towels in the tiny washer... so again annoying. Drawers on the dresser are falling apart.
Overall it was a great stay, we loved the location, even with it needing updating, if those things really bother you, and you need luxury accommodations this isn't for you. Incredibly slow WiFi at 1mbps, yes ONE. My husband had some work to do from here and wasn't able to.
Thank you very much for your accurate review. We are thrilled you found this home perfect for your preferred type of stay. Rustic beach house nails it! You are spot on with the kitchen description as it is small and not conducive to cooking(or cleaning) for large groups of people(especially Thanksgiving!) but satisfies basic needs. We are proud to host over 10,000 amazing guests a year and economy of scale means basic supplies add up(easily $75,000/year+). So, we prefer to pass those savings on to you so you can get more bang for your buck on the actual property. As you stated we let everyone know before arriving exactly what to expect (thank you Sis!). We are so glad you found the beach access great, rooms comfortable and views gorgeous! We look forward to welcoming you back and let us know what extra supplies you'd like and we'll supply them. Thank you again- Kingfisher Vacations

The location could not be better. Right ac cross the street from your own beautiful beach. Take a walk along the beach to Mucky Duck for a drink. Kitchen a little dated but more than functional, and who wants to sit in the kitchen when you have a terrific deck and the ocean feet away? Will be back.
Thank you so much for the wonderful review! We are happy you had a nice stay and hope to see you soon!
