Had a fantastic holiday at Manatee Cove April 2017. The house feels very homely and is tastefully and comfortably furnished and equipped - including beach wagon and cooler. Plenty of space for our family group (4 adults and 2 kids) and there were 2 unused bedrooms and extra kitchen/lounge. You effectively have a private beach if you follow the private path as there is no parking and the beach was pretty much empty on our stretch each day we went. Beach is good for shelling and swimming. Pool is large and dock is great for watching wildlife / fishing - we saw dolphin, manatee and variety of birds. House is quiet day/night. Short drive to restaurants in Captiva or Sanibel. Idyllic location, will go for longer next time! Owners helpful, friendly and easy to deal with.
