    Got married January 2019 at Tween Waters. We have been staying at West Wind every year since I was 2. Sending all my love to those who live in and love this beautiful place.

    My husband Ian and I have been to Tween Waters in Captiva twice. It is our favorite place to relax, sit by the pool, enjoy the drinks, walk the beach, take bike rides and enjoy a sunset. We love it and can’t wait for you to reopen! We were planning on coming again in the Spring. See you soon!

    After my mother unexpectedly passed away in October of 2020, The West Wind is where I came to find peace and to try to heal my heart. In January 2021 I flew in from Ohio on her birthday.. the staff, the pool, the sunrises she sunsets got me through it. I even met some friends and had great conversations. Then I couldn’t stay away. I came again January 2022. I was planning on coming this October for the anniversary of her death. It’s the best therapy I could ever have! Although I wing be able to physically be there my heart is. Thoughts and Prayers for all of you.

    Some of my most precious memories are from the family vacations we would take to the Beachview cottages each April. From running down to my family to relaxing on the wooden structure overlooking the gulf to shelling with mom and chasing lizards in the evenings up the palm trees. The sand path to the ocean lined with colorful cottages with palm trees towering overtop will always have a special place in my heart.



    We were married at the Sanibel lighthouse in July 2013 and had our reception at ‘Tween Waters. We were so lucky to be able to spend time with those nearest & dearest to us at a beautiful resort before and after our wedding. In fact, it made such an impression that my mom & stepdad were married there in July 2014 and my sister-in-law were married there just this past August. Even with family locally, we stay at Tweens. It’s a special place to us, our family, & our friends. We look forward to visiting each year.

    From living in the area and visiting multiple times from 96-2000, to visiting again last year on vacation TW has always been a fave!

    We love our stays at Beachview and Castaways over the last 22 years. The staff was so friendly, accommodating and genuine. My girls have grown up going to Beachview and Castaways.



    We were fortunate enough to stay right before the hurricane. It breaks our hearts to see what everyone is going through. We had such an incredible time. The rooms were clean and comfortable and we had a great view over the bay. We loved having drinks by the pool and the Old Captiva House restaurant was fantastic. It was a quick ride in the car to either side of the island which was very convenient. We hope that they are able to rebound soon because we can’t wait to visit again.
