This is a remarkable rental property...spacious, elegant comfortable, secluded, well-managed, consumer-friendly and it even allows you to bring Bowser! The distance from Captiva Drive is a God-send, especially in the A.M. when the garbage trucks roll in. It sits right on the Roosevelt Channel and there is a handy path to walk to an isolated stretch of Gulf beach. There are three beautiful levels, providing 'oodles' of room. My wife and I were fond of taking our morning-coffee in the master bedroom, awaiting the arrival of Ol' Person Sun over Buck Key. The heated pool is truly an oasis: sunny, warm, clean and handy. Manatee Cove very much embodies the notion of "Quiet Enjoyment": you are left to your own devices. (I hesitate to think what this Review will do to the "Availability Calendar"... we may never get back!) This is a very special destination on Captiva- worth every penny of the expense. We will reminisce about our time at Manatee Cove for the rest of our lives. It truly has everything you could want.
