The cottage we rented was clean and spacious. Only 150 steps to the water for me so I loved the location. At their marina, you can put a deposit on beach chairs and get a total refund when you bring them back. Turner’s beach was just around the corner and plenty of Captiva restaurants and shopping close by. I would definitely stay here again in the future.

Our cottage leaked on the first day. Our luggage and clothing got wet. The owner could not be contacted (seems like if you are the owner you'd be available) so we were moved to another resort for the night. The next day we were moved to a different cottage which (even without the leak) was a much nicer cottage. The grounds around the cottage had trash that looked as if it were laying there for some time. The trash was still on the grounds after our five day stay. We did get a discounted price for all the trouble that we had.

We love staying at Castaways! The staff is very friendly and helpful. The location can't be beat - within walking distance to 3 amazing restaurants and a well-stocked convenience store. Not fancy, but clean and comfortable!

Our room was clean & convenient Great location. A/C had high pitch noise making it difficult to sleep. Had to keep turning it off. Disappointed with area around our unit. Grounds definitely need some attention.

Close to great restaurants. Quaint atmosphere. Nice and quiet. Beach was awesome. When it wasn't raining, the sunsets were spectacular. If you want a getaway to just hang out and chill, this is the place.

This was a clean comfortable place to lay your head at night after doing the beach and other activities. The beach blind pass which is across the street was dirty and very unappealing and that is what made the trip not as pleasant. We went to other beaches but this one is right across the street. The castaways cottages although worn, were all we needed after a full day in the sun. they had umbrellas and chairs for the beach and that was really nice. Stay away from the restaurant next-door called the Lazy flamingo, their prices were inflated and we left all of our food because it was disgusting

Overall we had a great stay and really loved the cottage. The only reason I feel negatively about our stay is because the price is way too high for what you get. The cottage was exactly the size I expected, but you could see the age and ware everywhere you looked. The ceiling looked like it might have water damage, the fridge leaked water on the floor and was rusty, the paint was cracking in the corners. I don't mind those things, but for the price. I know it's Florida in the summer and there are bugs here, but we also saw two roaches and a TON of... caterpillars? Grubs? How did they even get in?? It's a great little cottage but the price is for a luxury hotel and it felt like the room really needed some love and attention.

Tropical paradise within the United States. You really feel like you are on Tahiti or another tropical island, no need for a passport. Loved this place. Not fancy but very peaceful and the sunsets are amazing!

Everything was great. It was a nice quiet, private, Florida beach vacation. We wanted a place that was more like old school Florida with lush landscaping and a million stars around at night. It's not commercial or overdone. The rooms were very quaint and served our needs. There is a great General Store and a few restaurants close by which was also great since we didn't have to drive if we didn't feel like it. The staff was excellent as well. We'll definitely be back.

Uncle Mike & IRE-Gal tie the knot under full moon at The Lazy Pelican. With Finn & Layla along for the trip. Castaways is boater friendly and allows pets, so it was our place of choice and a very enjoyable vacation! We’ll be back.
