This five bedroom and six bathroom home is a beautiful property very close to the beach on a private road. Each year we come back to this home is gets better and better with upgrades and additional amenities.
The full bathroom and tiki bar with drop-down TV by the pool were the most recent awesome upgrades. The breakfast and family room area have been recently remodeled. The farmhouse dining table that seats 10-12 people is wonderful for family dinners and playing games. Appliances are regularly upgraded, and now they have a high efficiency washers and dryers on the first floor and second floor.
There are many good restaurants nearby. The Green Flash is our favorite!
The caretakers, Lee and Bonnie, do their best to make you comfortable and are always available if needed.
We look forward to returning to this beautiful property soon!

Simply put, our whole three-family crew had an amazing week that exceeded our expectations in every way. And as seasoned veterans of Captiva, those expectations were high to begin with!
Tropical Breeze was hands-down the best of several homes my wife and I have stayed in on Captiva. Our new-to-Captiva friends were very impressed, and everything from the service to the bedrooms to the Tiki bar worked great for our group of toddlers to 40-somethings.

Our family has vacationed on Captiva for many years, and Tropical Breeze was by far our best experience. It is the perfect home for a family vacation and enjoying what Captiva & Sanibel offer. The Buckinghams, Lee and Bonnie, obviously care greatly about the home and its presentation. They were extremely helpful during our booking and lead-in to our arrival. Lee and Bonnie helped with stocking of groceries for our arrival, and even had gifts for the wives and kids what a great surprise! Perfect location you can just rent a golf cart, Tropical Breeze has absolutely everything needed to enjoy the island plus it is a 30 second walk to the beach and very short stroll to the Mucky Duck. Hard to describe all that the home offers…perfectly supplied/appointed as other guests have written, and we all loved the game room and pool. Sunset view was fantastic! We’ll definitely return to Captiva, it will most certainly be at Tropical Breeze.

We had an amazing time at Tropical Breeze and were really impressed with the beauty of the home, the ease of access to the beach, and the superb customer service provided by the owner (Phil and Natalie) and the manager (Lee). We were 6 adults and 3 kids (two three-year olds, and one seven-year old) in our party and we got great use out of the 5 bedrooms, pool area, common areas, and sun deck where we would watch the sunset in the evenings (one evening, we saw a beautiful double rainbow after a light t-storm). The description of the location, layout and amenities were accurate. The property was clean and well-maintained, and had everything you could need including pool toys, beach toys for kids, chairs and umbrellas that you could take to the beach, and even a wheelbarrow for transporting it all. The beach is only 1 minute walk away and is just breathtaking. The owners and managers provided great customer service, everything from e-mails answering my additional questions about the property, showing us around when we arrived, giving us recommendations for a photographer to come take family portraits on the beach, and even sent us back the DVDs that we forgot in the house! We were just so happy with their graciousness and friendliness. It made our stay so much more comfortable, and we really felt relaxed in their home. I would definitely recommend this property to a friend or relative (just don't go when we want to go back ;-)!! While we were there, we enjoyed going to the Shell Museum and the Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge. As for restaurants, we enjoyed the Bubble Room (real hit with the kids!), the Mucky Duck (right on the beach and perfect for lunch), RC Otters (casual restaurant, good for kids) and the Green Flash (good for adults). But the thing we enjoyed the most was going to the beach every day, seeing dolphins while swimming in the early evening (around 6pm), finding sand dollars and hermit crabs in the ocean with our feet, and using the pool to relax and play "Marco, Polo" with the kids!

The house is very modern, clean and comfortable. Our family of seven had plenty of room and loved the house. We ended up spending most of our time around the pool. The kids loved how there were already beach toys, boogie boards, skim boards, chairs and umbrellas already there. It was nice the house had wifi since our kids are addicted to streaming videos! Proximity to the beach was excellent; only about a one minute walk. Restaurants and bars were within walking distance and the fact that Jerry's delivered groceries to our house was very convenient. Overall, a very beautiful, roomy house that everybody enjoyed. Highly recommended!!!!!!!!!

There is an expression in that there are three things to look for in real estate: 1) Location, 2) Location and 3) Location. Well, Tropical Breeze has the PERFECT location. It only a few yards from the beach and a short walk to many restaurants.
But the house has so much more. You can play pool, foosball, or ping pong around the beautiful screened in pool. Plus there is a Tiki Bar complete with a wireless speaker that can sync with your music selection.
The kitchen is amazing. It is equipped with anything you need. Plus it has a big table for 10+ people and a center island with even more seats.
All five bedrooms have an attached bathroom. The family room has a theater sized television set and media center complete with a whole house speaker system.
My favorite area was the sundeck. What a great place to be during sunset.
What impressed me is they provide everything you need for the beach....chairs, sun-shade umbrellas, beach toys, cooler, and even the beach wheel barrel to get all of these items easily to the beach. What we liked was the outdoor shower area to rinse the sand off when you come back from the beach.
They provide games, books and just about anything you will ever need at a beach vacation.
They even have a house concierge who welcomes you to the house and gives you a complete overview.
Yes, this is The Perfect Beach House. We are already planning our next family vacation at Tropical Breeze.
This was our second year at Tropical Breeze and even though we have stayed here before, it exceeded our expectations. The owners care so much about the property that they are constantly updating and upgrading it. We loved the addition of a full bathroom downstairs by the pool. We've looked pretty hard and believe this is the best property on Captiva if you: value being close to the beach, need 5 bedrooms and bathrooms, like to walk to everything you need, and want a private pool. It's also great that TB has very attentive, local management if anything goes wrong (which it probably won't). The pictures will show how well decorated and clean the house is. What you can't tell from the specs is how great it is to be just off (and off is good) of Andi Rossi where the grocery store and many of the restaurants are. It's a short walk to everything you need. That's a big advantage over Sanibel. We never needed our car. There are very few properties that come close to TB and none that can match it. Yes, we'll be back again net year!

Its always a relief when the house I rent for our family vacation meets my expectations. The Tropical Breeze house description was accurate as far as location and layout. The amenities provided with the house far exceeded my expectations. it was stocked with every kitchen gadget imaginable, plenty of beach equipment, and extras such as paper products, and soaps, detergents, etc.
It appears that, furniture, appliances, linens, beach chairs, etc. must all be regularly replaced. With the beach just a short pathway walk away and a heated pool at our fingertips, the kids were happy for the week without looking for additional activities. We only left the island once to do an additional grocery shopping. Our favorite restaurant was Key Lime Bistro.
The manager Lee and his wife Bonnie were responsive to all our needs and questions. I would definitely recommend this vacation home to friends.
This was our second time at Tropical Breeze and we hope to make it an annual vacation. There is no better location in Captiva; we love how close it is to the beach on a private road. No worries about the children going back and forth to the house by themselves. The home is so spacious and the new upgrades (new washer/dryers and new bathroom on lower level) are fantastic. We also appreciated the warm pool (it was a little chilly during our week there). So many amenities are provided; you really want for nothing. The caretakers, Lee and Bonnie, see to it that you have everything you need and go above and beyond with every request. My grandchildren think this is "Grandma's house in Captiva" I have no problem with that!

Tropical Breeze is the perfect home to enjoy the beautiful Island of Captiva. It is obvious that Phil and his wife really care about giving you a great vacation experience down to every detail. Lee and his wife, Bonnie were amazing onsite hosts that were available to answer any questions and greet you upon arrival to give you an orientation to this beautiful home, The location is perfect, no need for a car! Just rent a golf cart or take a short walk one street over to all restaurants and shops, or stroll a few feet to a beautiful path that leads to an amazing beach with dolphins and perfect sunsets. Everyone in our group from 8 to 76 enjoyed our trip. On top of having the perfect location, the quality of your home and the amenities offered at Tropical Breeze were outstanding... soft bamboo sheets, numerous fluffy pool towels, quality mugs, glasses and kitchen utensils, beach and pool toys. Everything was clean, open, airy and perfect for our family(s) to be together or retreat to our personal space. The pool was warm and the down stairs game area was so much fun for all. This is a wonderful home with a positive happy energy. You will enjoy!
