As relaxing and enjoyable as a vacation to Florida is, sometimes figuring out the logistics of vacation can be difficult. Unlike some vacation rentals available in the Ft. Meyers area, Captiva Retreat offers plenty to see and do just steps from your front door. Having plenty of amenities within walking distance helps to take the transportation logistics out of vacation planning. Below, we will take a look at some of the many options within walking distance of Captiva Retreat.


The Beach

One of the primary reasons our guests look for vacation rentals in the Ft. Meyers area is to visit the beach. So why not find a vacation home that is literally steps away from the beautiful blue waters? The vacation property at Captiva Retreat is only 300 yards away from the beach. To get to the beach, you have the luxury of following a tranquil private road and walkway. After mere minutes of walking, enjoy a wide and sandy beach. The beach offers plenty of opportunities for family activities or to simply sit back and relax. Collectors will be pleased with the variety of shells that wash ashore daily. We even make relaxation even easier by providing you with beach towels, beach toys, and chairs at the house for your use.



With the marina directly across the street there are plenty of restaurants for you to enjoy. In fact, we have eight of them within walking distance. We have a range of dining options including traditional American fare. Enjoy a mixed drink on the outdoor deck while you take in the scenery. You can also get your fill of seafood and upscale dining within walking distance of the house. Prefer to make something yourself? At Captiva Retreat we have three grills on site that you are free to use.
