Great beach getaway
Had very relaxing stay at Rick's. Very clean and tidy property, and a perfect location on Captiva.
Thanks Brian for your kind remarks. Hope to hear from you again.
Property just as listed and pictured. The beach chairs and umbrellas were a pleasant surprise. Check-in location is in Sanibel not Captiva and my lack of reading ahead almost made me drive by it but I noticed it just in time. Lots of restaurants, bars and shopping within walking distance. Beach too was a very short walk away. Look forward to returning.
Rex, thanks for your kind comments. Hope to hear from you again, one day.
Lovely home...spotless...dogs loved the quick walk to beach...central to best restaurants on foot or golf cart...relieved a huge amount of stress! Lovely landscaping...reminded me of when I lived in the Bahamas. Thank you all...excellent getaway.
A Special Place
Rick’s Retreat is a special place reminiscent of old Florida and with all the comforts of home. The location can’t be beat, equidistant to town restaurants, bars and the beach. If shelling is a goal it is sad but true that the sea shell population has been decimated by greedy human shell seekers based on my observations over 40 yrs vacationing in the Sanibel Captiva islands. That said, its still one of the best beaches in the USA.
Thanks Leigh for your kind words. Hope to see you back in Captiva one day.
Wonderful village location--200 steps to the beach, one block to shops, restaurants, galleries. Enjoy this great location--be it the most romantic beach or the excellent shops and restaurants, all within a two minute walk. Captiva and 'Rick's Retreat'--paradise on earth! Come enjoy!
