35th Anniversary - Perfect place for it

Stayed here this past week. Booked White Caps #7 for our 35th anniversary get-away and it was perfect. The cottage is just like you see in the pictures. We LOVED it. It is the second to the last cottage before the beach, but you still have an awesome view from the table while having coffee in the morning. Speaking of coffee, here's some pointers that may be of help (things I wish I knew before arriving):
* FULLY stocked kitchen; stove, fridge w/ ice maker, microwave, coffee maker & filters, dishwasher, 2 slice toaster, blender (inside cabinet), all kinds of pots/pans - cooking & eating utensils - bowls - dishes - coffee cups & glasses - dish towels & dishrags - salt & pepper. Does not have coffee or any food (which is as it should be) so you will need to stop at the store.
* Bed (king size), with 4 pillows, was freshly made plus an extra blanket in closet.
* Bath towels, washrags & hand towels are provided.
* Beach towels (4) were provided.
* Beach chairs (2) & beach umbrella were provided in the storage bin outside back door. There was a small cooler in there too that we took to the beach.
* There is a "starter pack" provided that has dish soap, dishwasher detergent, garbage bags, 4 pack toilet paper, hand soap, box of tissues. It was more than enough for us two for the week.
* Plenty of hangers in the closet, which I was glad for.
* Check ALL the cabinets - people leave stuff behind for others to use. I was delighted to find books to read, playing cards and other stuff "to do" if wanted.
* There is a coin operated washer & dryer ($1.75 each machine) in the small building by recycle/trash area. You need to supply your own soap/softener. Machines seem fairly new, were clean and worked great for me.
The staff at Select Vacation Properties were great in handling any questions/needs we had.
We came here, to Sanibel Island, for the first time ever for our 35th anniversary and we're completely satisfied with the place we cho - Viola T., Wilmington, IL

Perfect Cottage for 2 on Sanibel

This cottage was a perfect spot for our stay on Sanibel. Bed was very comfortable, shower was good sized, and kitchen had everything you needed. Most importantly the view and location (steps to the beach) was perfect! Centrally located near shopping but very private and quiet. We had an issue with the hot water heater and the management company handled it quickly. Also, before our stay they contacted us and answered questions about the property and gave a lot of great recommendations for restaurants, activities, etc. This is a great value for a beachfront property in Sanibel. - Angela K., Battle Creek, mi

Comfortable, Convenient Stay!

Quiet, relaxing 7 nights. The cottage was clean and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Quick, easy access to the beach. Close to many restaurants and market. The management team was very efficient. It is a little small for 4 but perfect for two guests. Very dog friendly!! - Pam F., Orlando, FL

JUST GREAT!!

Everything about this property met or exceeded our expectations. Great location, amenities, interior comfort and design. The management company was easy to deal with and accessible. Sanibel Island has not changed much since I lived in the Sea Oats s/d, off West Gulf Drive...not far from White Caps, in the late 1980's-early 90's. It is the quiet, more relaxed part of the island and a perfect beach experience. I highly recommend this unit for 2 adults and possibly 1 child. Have fun and see you on the beach! - Peg S., Sonoma, CA

great beach cottage

this place has everything needed for a beach stay. 30 yards from a great private beach, chairs, shade umbrellas, plenty of towels, all cooking and grilling materials. Spotlessly clean, no ants, very comfortable bed (fold out couch not too bad either). nice bathroom and shower, excellent A/C . Only recommendation is to stock a small amount of some extra essentials in cottage for when guests arrive....cooking oil, sugar, coffee and filters, ketchup, butter. We had to purchase all these the day after arriving and used less than 1/4 of each before leaving. Would recommend to a friend and would return to this cottage again. - Stephen H., Okemos, MI

Great dog friendly cottage

We’ve been coming to Sanibel for years and this trip I wanted to bring our dog. Couldn’t have asked for a better location. My only complaint is that it is a very small condo, and the decorative furniture and pillows just took up too much space that we could’ve have used otherwise. - Anonymous, Elkview, WV

Sunny Sanibel

The description is pretty much spot on, the pics do a great job of representing the space. The kitchen had everything we needed. The living area is the weakness area in the rental, the sleeper sofa is horrible, I slept on it one night. Ouch, the middle of the mattress sags miserably. The unit has a dvr/vhs combo so the blue rays I brought along to watch during thunder storms or during the evenings went to no use. The bed in the master was very comfortable, the bathroom was fine, loved the pebbled floor of the shower. No washer/dryer in this unit. My own fault for not understanding this prior to checkin. They have a coin operated laundry room for use, we skipped that. The cottage is right on the beach, the location of this rental cannot be beat. I think to fit 4 people in this unit would be tight. - ANgel T., Demorest, GA

Beach Getaway

We enjoyed our week at White Caps 7. While small, the cottage is fine for 2, but would be very tight for more. Proximity to the beach was great and access to restaurants and businesses was close by. - Anonymous, Parrish, FL

WhiteCaps #7 -" know what you want, know what you're getting"

I was looking for a quiet place, hence Sannibel Island, but even further I wanted to not feel like I was living in a condo i.e. the close neighbors and densely populated feel that you typically experience in a resort.
The cottages at WhiteCaps are like that, even though they are "sandwiched" in between other condo complexes, the few cottages, 9?, are freestanding or are actually duplex style, so you have only one "neighbor wall", which I never heard anything through. The end result is that I felt like I had the isolation I was looking for on the beachfront.

That said, it is an older building, older but comfortable furniture and sufficient supplies. It is a bright unit, as per picture but only if you kept blinds open, creating a fishbowl effect to the few neighbors who might be strolling to the beach.
It is clean and well maintained, I did see one Florida sized roach (beetle?)but it is Florida and I only saw the one.

Potential "downsides":
1. Laundry: one washer and 1 dryer in a separate outbuilding but it was not heavily used so it was easy to use. It requires lots of quarters $1.75 each, and there is no change machine so BYO, but they did provide detergent in the unit but no dryer sheets (if you like those things).
2. No pool, clubhouse, etc. - again, know what you are looking for.
3. They do allow pets but fortunately the people there had nice quiet dogs so I was not disturbed by barking. I'm pretty sure if someone brought a "barker" everyone would suffer.

Upsides:
1. The beach access was wonderful, just a few steps to an uncrowded (even for Sannibel) section of clean beachfront.
2. They provided chairs & umbrella, and a few toys, in an outside hamper. They were in pretty rough, but serviceable condition.
3. Good remote location, out of traffic pattern with easy access towards Captiva or off island route. - Roy S., Naperville, IL

Another beautiful holiday at WC 7

We have stayed in this cottage 18 times over the past 23 years and it never gets old! The location is perfect, 30 steps from the beach, and the beach itself is unspoiled and never crowded. The owner has installed California shutters on almost all windows since our visit last year ... a much-needed improvement. We also love that the cottage is pet-friendly, as it has always been since we started staying there. This is hard to find any more. There were a couple of small glitches which Select Vacations was quick to remedy, thankfully. We have already booked for next year! - Gil and Judy C., Ontario, Canada

A Beautiful Stay in Sanibel

I arrived later in the day than expected, and had trouble finding my cabin and using the key. It was pitch dark! Went to cottage next door for help and the resident said the door was in the back of the cottage. She came over with me with a flashlight and we got in. After that, everything was smooth sailing. I thought the location was AMAZING to the village and to the beach--steps away to the beach. White Caps was very quiet and the people there at the time were respectful and extremely pleasant.
I loved my little cottage! It was happy, well organized, comfortable, and modern. Just beautiful. I couldn't have been happier with my stay!! White Caps #7 was just perfect in every way!
The people (Patience) at Select Properties was extremely helpful also! - Anonymous, Saint Louis, MO

Best location

This is our third time staying in this unit. It's just right for a couple. Its proximity to the beach can't be beat. There were a few minor issues: 1) the wifi signal is extremely weak, 2) the DVD player quit working on our last night, 3) the bed is not very comfortable 4) the refrigerator was not clean. However, the unit is well-maintained and has everything you could possibly need. We would definitely come back for a fourth stay in this unit. - Diane B., Orlando, FL

Excellent Location, Cute Cottage

White Caps #7 was a wonderful cottage that my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed. It was clean, comfortable and very nicely decorated. Perfect size for two. We couldn't have been more pleased to stay at this private little hideaway. Take your flashlight if you plan to walk your dog after sunset...the dark is undisturbed by any light in the area. Great for sleeping! Thanks to staff at SVP who recommended the Island Cow - great food and even better service. Definitely would stay here again. - Anonymous, Martinez, Ga
