We tried our very best to help you get your things back. With the unfortunate language barrier that we had in communication we struggled with it. I'm sorry that what we were told was your items left in the room where not truly your items. It was definitely not intentional to not get you your items back.

The A-frame we re ted for the weekend was, roomy, clean and very private. More room than my husband and I needed. Pool was nice, close walking distance to great restaurants and store. We didn't cook but did use the fridge a lot.The only down side to renting an A-frame is that it

Thank you for your review! We are working on trying to find a better solution to cool the A-frames, as the weather keeps getting hotter and hotter each year. We hope to see you back soon!

We booked this room late using HotelTonight. Good prices. Rooms very clean, cold AC. Friendly staff. Comfortable bed. Good location for other activities on Sanabel and Captiva. Restaurants nearby. We plan to book again and spend more time visiting local Parks and places.

All I can say is BEWARE of this place. We arrived on a Sunday evening after hours of driving only to enter the A frame cottage to a broken air conditioning and bugs all over the kitchen counter. We were put into a smaller deluxe studio room but found after just a few minutes

We typically charge 20 per night per pet. We will sometimes make exceptions based on your length of stay- you can call and speak to someone directly and see if there would be any sort of discount based on your length of stay. 239-395-9688

We do not have any rooms on property that offer bathtubs. The reason we don't put rates on here as they change on a regular basis. So the rate is really based on when you want to stay. Anything other then that is just a large range of pricing...For example right now in the month of September, you can book for as low as $69 all the way up to $189 depending on room type, length of stay, and when you are trying to book. Our office is open daily from 9am until 9pm and anyone who answers the phone would be happy to provide you with specific details based on your stay dates. 239-395-9688

Are exterior sitting areas private? Can you request an end unit?
The only "private" outside areas we have are if you are booked into an A-Frame cottage. Our rooms are laid out differently from a hotel. We are located on one level over 2 buildings. If you are looking a end unit only you would need to book room 14/15 or 19 as these are the only end units with only one neighbor on them. Hope this helps.
