Florida Vacation Guide to stay options on Captiva Island

In southwest Florida, in the Gulf of Mexico, sits one of our favorite hidden gems…Captiva Island.

With its miles and miles of pristine white sand beaches, this peaceful barrier island is a preferred Florida travel destination for many state residents and visitors to the region alike. But before you start making plans to visit Captiva Island, you should know that this pretty little corner of the world has no hotels.

But don’t worry! The Florida Vacation Guide is here to help you figure out your Captiva Island stay options:

Tween Waters Inn

Stay in one of Tween Waters Inn’s historic cottages or a room with a view of the courtyard or the water. In between romantic strolls along the beach, book yourself some relaxing spa treatments. Lounge in the pool or play a game of tennis. Have a drink at The Crow’s Nest Bar before dinner at The Old Captiva House restaurant which is considered by many people to be the best place to eat on Captiva Island.

Captiva Island Inn

Located among Captiva village’s shops, services, restaurants and entertainment, this charming property is made up of small stand-alone cottages. The Captiva Island Inn is also just a quick walk to the beach!

Jensen’s Gulfside

Stay in an upscale condo or cottage on the beach. Don’t expect a pool or the types of amenities you might find at a fancy resort, but who needs anything else when you have a perfect stretch of beach to explore and a cute little village within walking distance? Besides Jensen’s Gulfside, this family business offers a more modest stay option also, in Jensen’s Twin Palms.

South Seas Island Resort

Private homes, villas, condos, rooms and timeshare units are available at the South Seas Island Resort, a gated community on 300+ acres at the tip of Captiva Island. This spectacular property is home to the island’s only golf course and without leaving the resort you can also go to sailing school, play tennis, dine at an excellent restaurant, explore the wildlife preserve, walk the beaches, or you may even go shopping.
