Cupcake – Captiva Rental!
Do you like your dessert first? Do you like the sweet taste of paradise? Then our “Cupcake” is for you! This delightfully sweet 3 bedroom, 2 ½ bath private home at 11461 Dickey Lane is situated on the quiet side of Captiva Village and close to everything. The Village is known for its restaurants, shops, and easy beachy atmosphere. Our “Cupcake” is an easy walk down Laika Lane to the beautiful white sand beach and a half block walk to the bay.
You will enjoy the many delightful colors of “Cupcake”. Swim in your own large heated and caged pool or enjoy the relaxation of the hot tub. You can read a book on the large back deck overlooking the pool area or have breakfast watching the world go by on the front deck.
Inside “Cupcake” the cathedral ceiling family room has comfortable furniture with a large screen TV, DVD Player, Wi-Fi and a Sonos speaker system. The house was professionally designed and completely updated in 2012. The 3 bedrooms, painted in fun and whimsical colors, are spacious and each includes a flat screen TV. Bedroom 1 has a Queen bed, bedroom 2 has two twin beds (which can be converted to a King on request) and, located on the opposite side of the house, the private master suite has a King bed and private ensuite. These bedrooms will have you sweetly dreaming of the memories you’ve made today and the memories you’ll make tomorrow. Check out the yummy and colorful countertops in each bathroom and the kitchen. You’ll smile every time you see them!
Speaking of the large airy kitchen, it is fully equipped and has a breakfast bar area and a separate dining area. The full-size washer and dryer are near the Kitchen. A gas BBQ grill is waiting for your use in the lanai.
As in a real cupcake, it’s not all about the icing, the cake underneath the icing is also enjoyable. Our “Cupcake” is no exception. There is ample parking and the ground floor pool area is a great gathering space for conversation, playing cards, games or enjoying your favorite beverage as you watch the swimmers in the pool. And you will appreciate the large covered area for fun and games in case of inclement weather or to escape the Florida sun for an afternoon nap! With this “Cupcake” you can enjoy the whole thing….with no calories!
Once you arrive at “Cupcake” park your car and leave it until it is time to go back to reality. Remember, “Cupcake” is a short walk to the beach and the bay. Walk to famous Andy Rosse Lane with its restaurants and shops. “Cupcake” includes a selection of beach toys, coolers, chairs, beach umbrellas and beach towels. A beach cart is provided to make the short trek to the beach very easy. Also, you can rent bicycles, surfboards and other fun beach toys at Yolo. How about renting a boat for the day at Jensen’s Marina? Cruise to North Captiva Island for lunch and dolphin and manatee watching. Keep in mind that it is only a short walk to everything that the Village offers.
Some visitors like to see the sun rise on the bay side…..we prefer to watch the sun set on the beach. Take a cooler, set up the beach chairs and take a lot of beautiful pictures as the sun sets over the gulf of the island of Captiva. Then pack up and take a stroll to the Mucky Duck, the Bubble Room or other delicious restaurants nearby, many of which have outdoor dining and live music.
In the morning you might like to take a short walk to Starbucks for your favorite coffee. Enjoy it there, or on the sunny front deck of “Cupcake”.
There is much to discover on Captiva Island. We wish you sweet dreams and mouth-watering memories as you experience the Village of Captiva and our fun and relaxing cottage called “Cupcake”. It would be a pleasure to have you as our guest!
