That is a BEAUTIFUL house. The neighborhood has a number of nice houses. Bird of Paradise, Ca'd'Mare, Escapade, and Sunset Too. White Pelican is the largest and one of the few beachfront ones with a pool.

You'll be a couple of blocks from the main village area and it will be easiest to reach most places by walking along the beach. Jensen's Marina will be just up Chapin Lane [White Pelican is near that street] and Green Flash restaurant. A little further down is Old Captiva House at Tween Waters Inn, the best restaurant on Captiva IMHO.

Have a great time!

I know that feeling!!!!!!!!! Not many beachfront places in the village area and I think [not sure] this is the only beachfront village house with a pool. Most pool homes are off beach. Be sure to let us know how it works out for you. We LOVE getting house reviews.
