My husband and I wanted a place to get away for a few days over the Christmas holiday. Our hopes were pretty high - I wanted the beach, he wanted to bring the boat, we both wanted to bring our two large dogs, and we didn't want to pay too much. I was so thrilled when we called the Captiva Island Inn and were told that our dogs were welcome. They were so helpful in suggesting a couple of nearby marinas. We found one with an available slip and we were set!
The location is fantastic. Right in the middle of it all, yet tucked away and quiet. We stayed in the Orchid cottage, which was very spacious for the 4 of us. True, there is no beach view, but it's literally just a couple minutes to walk there. There are great restaurants and shops nearby, including a liquor store and a couple of small grocery and coffee shops.
The icing on the cake was the included breakfast. I mean, who includes a restaurant breakfast as part of the nightly rate? Amazing. The food was really, really great and the service was also wonderful at both restaurants. We even had dinner there one night since it was so convenient. My only critique is the wine prices at the Key Lime Bistro. To charge 76 bucks for a ten dollar bottle of wine (J Lohr), for example, seems pretty ridiculous. We found a less marked up bottle that we liked so we were happy, but were just shocked to see such markup.
Anyway....thank you for the wonderful stay, we will absolutely, positively be back. Cheers!
