Tania Hodges purchased this House in 2013
Why Tania Hodges chose Captiva
Mark and I visited Captiva in 2010 and knew we wanted to stay but we had to return home to the UK. Instead we spent 3 years searching for the ideal Captiva getaway. We fell in love with Sandcastle. It was completely empty but we knew it could be turned into a wonderful vacation destination. It was a great experience creating a home and making it beautiful. Somewhere we want to stay ourselves and a great base for allowing Homeaway guests to relax and experience old Captiva. We love the location, 5 minutes away from the bustle of the Village centre and its bars and restaurants but secluded and allowing complete relaxation and peacefulness. We also love its size. Sandcastle has 7 bedrooms (the 7th was added in Spring 2017). This allows big family groups to stay and celebrate together. We have hosted wedding anniversaries and special birthdays - grandparents revisiting with their grown up kids and introducing grandchildren to wonderful Captiva - shelling, dolphin watching and the Green Flash at sunset (the kids always say they see this but I'm still looking)! Sandcastle is a very special vacation home in a very special place.
What makes this House unique
So many to list! A peaceful location, views of the bay from the 3rd floor balcony, an elevator for elderly or tired guests, a beautiful secluded pool and hot tub, balconies to hide away and terraces to come together. 5 minutes from the centre of Captiva Village, 2 minutes from the beach, within the golf buggy zone.
