Captiva Vacation Rentals

Captiva is a beautiful island that’s surrounded by gorgeous beaches and wonderful boating and fishing. It’s relatively small, only about ten square miles, so you can walk or bike to anyplace on the island. You hardly need the car. It’s just a quiet village but with big-time services. It has found great prominence in spite of its modest culture. This prominence has come partly from the famous people who became islanders and partly from travel writers who have called it the happiest island with the best and most romantic beach. But mostly it comes from the regular people who come here for a vacation and never want to leave. It offers all the things you expect to find on a sub-tropical island – beaches, boating, biking as well as golf, tennis, world famous restaurants and great shops – so there is a lot you can do on this small island.

Island Fun
You could visit the Jungle Drums Art Gallery or the Captiva History Gallery. You can go cruising with Captiva Cruises or go parasailing. Visit the Bubble Room or Mucky Duck – two of the famous restaurants. And it’s right next door to Sanibel Island and their attractions such as the famous “Ding” Darling Wildlife Refuge. Just a short canoe ride away is Buck Key, a small uninhabited island preserve with 4 miles of pretty waterways that introduce you to the natural beauty of this unspoiled habitat for migratory birds and other wildlife. But before enjoying all this there is the detail of finding the right place to stay. There are many rental properties available on Captiva for vacationers. They are as grande or as simple as you want – a big home on the beach, a one bedroom villa on a canal, a simple house in a friendly neighborhood or a cottage by the bay. All are well maintained, beautifully furnished and equipped with everything you’ll need. Whatever accommodations you want for your vacation the Gopher will get it for you because the Gopher knows Captiva.
