“White Caps #2 redecorated, still charming”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

Our cottage was as comfortable as we remembered from our first trip but beautifully redecorated and updated. Very clean and tidy. Shower door could use some repair. Kingfisher Rentals was responsive and helpful. We had a relaxing week, mostly because we were only a few yards from the ocean. You'll love your stay at whitecaps #2. We hope to stay there next year.

My husband and I frequently rent apartments for stays in many locations around the world. Our all time best rental experience has been renting through Cottages To Castles on Sanibel Island. We have just returned from a month long stay in one of their properties (Recovery Room) and they bent over backwards to make our stay pleasant and memorable. This was our second time renting through them, and both houses were extremely well equipped, with plenty of fresh new linens, new towels (even plenty of beach towels), a great coffee pot, dishes and glassware in complete sets and plenty of pots and pans and kitchen knives that actually cut (a problem in many of our past rentals).

We had a problem with our refrigerator mid-way through our stay, and they sent someone to check it out within 30 minutes of our call to them and had a repairman there within the hour.

The very sharp mother-daughter team that owns and runs this agency have lived in the area for many years and are happy to answer any and every question, even emailing us answers on weekends when the rental agency was closed)! We have been visiting the island for 25 years and have rented from every agency on the island, but have never received the kind of personal attention and help we have from this agency. We already have 2 more rentals lined up through them for next year. If you are a Sanibel lover, as we are, and want a well maintained property, responsive management, and the inside scoop about where to go and what to do these are the folks to call.

Cottages to Castles always finds us the best, and most beautiful places to stay on Sanibel Island. We have a million "little" things on our wish list every year and this company never fails to fill them all quickly and professionally. We have stayed at many different locations over the years, and each one has been beautiful and to our satisfaction. Our last visit, to white caps 1 was no exception. The unit was beautiful and right on the beach. We were quite comfortable and enjoyed the island feel of the unit. The beach was beautiful, if not a little warm. The shelling was ok, but better on Captiva. Oh well, you can't heave everything! Thanks to Cottages to Castles finding us another winner!

I have worked with C2C for years and have always had exemplary service. I got my wires crosses one year and showed up a week early! No problem for C2C, they got me squared away. To the people who brought a dog into White Caps 6......since when are pets allowed?! I think never. Those of us who count on a vacation rental that is pet free, due to severe allergies, it is renters like you who ruin things.
We love White Caps, the location, the cottage, and C2C always makes our vacation fantastic!

We just returned from a week long vacation staying at WC#1. While it is conveniently located next to the beach, the unit is a wreck. The furniture is filthy. For example, the ancient and sad couch has brown piping. A shocker when you discover that it was originally white. I'm guessing the bathroom and kitchen haven't been touched in over twenty five years. The tile in the shower is a real treat.

There is a walk in closet that is being used as a storage for everything collected from various garage sales over the years. Why do you need two ancient toasters stacked in there?

Bottom line. This would be the perfect spot if you like doing home repairs and are looking for a venue with limitless options for where to start. Otherwise, spend your hard-earned money somewhere else until the owner spends some of theirs to fix this place up.

I'm sure at some point you have been told to visit Sanibel. Staying at White Caps #2 was my first trip to Sanibel and will not be my last!! This adorable cottage was perfect for us! We were pleasantly surprised that the photos matched this beautifully decorated beach cottage. The location to the gulf was very convenient for our sun bathing & shelling! The cottage included beach chairs and an umbrella. Our location to everything that Sanibel has to offer was ideal. We rode the bikes to lunch, Bailey's, and even to breakfast at the Lighthouse Cafe. We had a wonderful time & promise to visit White Caps again soon!!
