Picnic Area in Side Yard

Welcome to Life's A Beach! This lovely beach cottage has an excellent location along quiet, sandy Wightman Lane (see photo on left), one of the most desirable lanes of the Captiva Village area. From here it's a quick stroll to the warm Gulf of Mexico sands - beach lovers will find the proximity really convenient. And you're only a very short walk from shopping, restaurants, activities, and the Island Store.

The grounds at Life's A Beach are carefully landscaped into a beautiful tropical garden. This is a masterwork of natural art, from the potted plants and flowering shrubs up through mature palms and massive trees. The garden is enhanced with pergola and trellis structures painted in bright colors. Dense hedges offer luxurious privacy and yet open to spacious outdoor areas where you can enjoy Captiva's gorgeous weather (when you aren't out on the beach!).

Entering from the parking area (ample space for two vehicles), pass through a dense hedge and under a trellis archway (photo top left) into the front yard where a large sundeck is furnished with gaily painted chairs (photo top right). Next to the deck is an inviting, open area with picnic table. The back yard (photos below) has a deck wrapping around the house, and a wooden walkway leading to a sturdy pavilion sheltering the large spa hot tub. An outdoor dining table with shade umbrella is just off the kitchen, for convenient outdoor dining.

There is a flat screen TV in the master bedroom.

The west guest bedroom has a queen bed and a full closet. The east guest bedroom is more compact, with two twin beds and a small closet.
