Winter, Captiva-Style, at ‘Tween Waters Inn

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and I have to agree. Winter on Captiva is fantastic. The weather is delightful, the shells are plentiful, and there are lots of ways to celebrate the season.

Snow Party at ‘Tween Waters

Every Friday and Saturday at 6pm from Dec 1, 2017 – Jan 27, 2018, bring the family and enjoy our tropical version of a Snow Party – no coats or mittens required! Enjoy all of the snow, and none of the cold.

Frozen drinks poolside

In need of something cold? Head to the Oasis Pool Bar and order your favorite frozen concoction. There are also frozen treats for the kids, and if you purchase a Tervis tumbler while you’re here with the ‘Tween Waters logo, you’ll get a coupon for a free piña colada.

Snowy Egrets

The yellow feet of this small white heron make them easy to identify. Look for these slender and elegant white birds at the marina, dancing along the shore at the beach, and at J.N. Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge.

Brightening Vitamin C Facial

Be merry and bright all season with this special vitamin rich facial at the Spa at ‘Tween Waters Inn. This 50-minute treatment can even out your skin tone and lighten discoloration.

Ice Cold Sushi

Tuesday through Saturday evenings, Captiva House Seafood Restaurant offers fresh, creative sushi. My son’s favorite is the “Sanibel Island” roll with tempura shrimp, cream cheese, cucumber, crab, spicy mayo, and eel sauce. Yum!

Sand Angels

Ever tried making the Captiva version of a snow angel? It’s easy! Or, channel your inner “Frozen” characters and build a Frozen castle at the beach. (And try not to sing, “Let It Go” too many times – unless your kids ask you to.)

Cool Live Web Cam

This is so cool! Check out the live Beach Cam at ‘Tween Waters Inn! Log on and you’ll see Santa’s sleigh and other holiday decorations in the foreground – and the shimmering Gulf of Mexico in the background. What a sight!

From my family to yours, I wish you a joyous holiday season and a happy, healthy 2018.

Boys to Men, This One’s for You

Whether you’re in need of a mancation or seeking some quality time with your family, ‘Tween Waters Inn has just what you need.

We’ve Got Your Back

How does a Deep Tissue Massage sound? (The answer is AHHHHH.) There is nothing better to relieve soreness, and the trained masseuses at ‘Tween Waters Spa work magic. And, have you ever had a massage of your feet and calves, and some buffing and trimming on those manly toes? It’s called a pedicure, but no one has to know. My brother says that pedicures are the best kept secret – he loves them, and he’s 6’5” and 285lbs. You want to tell him he’s wrong?

For the Golfer

Tee it up at the 18-hole championship Sanibel Island Golf Club. You’ll even receive a 10% discount when you show your room key from ‘Tween Waters Inn.

Reel Fun

If you love fishing (and who doesn’t?), ‘Tween Waters Inn can hook you up. You can rent your own boat or book a trip with a captain who knows where the fish like to hang out.

Hot Tubs

It may not be a time machine but it can take you back to stress-free times. Ease on in and bubble your cares away. There are two hot tubs to choose from on the pool deck.

Game On

If there’s a game on TV, you can catch it at the Crow’s Nest, along with your favorite cold beverage.

Sharp Dressed Man

Clean shirt, new shoes…you know the song, but did you know The Pelican’s Roost is filled with top quality clothing? This onsite shop has all kinds of nautical clothes and accessories.

Pump You Up

You won’t have to miss a single workout, if that’s your thing. You’ll find your favorite equipment in the Fitness Center. Or, just chill by the pool (oh wait, that’s my thing)!

So, take a break from the bbq, the honey-do lists, and car repairs, and get yourself over here. And to all the dads out there, Happy Father’s Day.

Top 5 Reasons I Love ‘Tween Waters Inn

Since celebrating Valentine’s Day, I’ve been thinking about love. More specifically, how much I love spending time at ‘Tween Waters Inn. Sure, the miles of uncrowded beach (and gorgeous seashells) would top anyone’s list. But here are the Top 5 Things I Love About ‘Tween Waters Inn Island Resort.

The sunsets

It’s a nightly sunset celebration. Fellow guests gather on the shore and watch as the sun sinks into the Gulf. Sunsets here are spectacular! We bring towels and sit right by the water – front row. We always look for the famous green flash (we’ve yet to see it)!

 

Heated pool year-round

The pool at ‘Tween Waters Inn is thermo-heated so it’s the ideal temperature – winter, spring, summer or fall. While I enjoy just floating around on a pool noodle, I love watching enthusiastic families from places like New York and Chicago – they’re so happy to be swimming in the winter!

 

Hot stone massage

I love being pampered at The Spa at ‘Tween Waters and their hot stone massage is my absolute favorite treatment. It feels so darn good. It’s hard tell the difference between the hot stones and the masseuse’s hands. Ahhh.

 

Walk to dinner

I love being able to walk to the onsite restaurants. I especially love the shrimp and grits at Crow’s Nest for dinner. I order it every time we visit. The grits are so creamy and the chef piles on the shrimp and chorizo. Comfort food at its best.

 

The wildlife

Being able to walk over to the docks and see dolphins and manatees in the marina is amazing! The dolphins even chase fish and splash around like crazy. The pelicans, osprey, egrets and herons always make me happy, too. Listen for the osprey calling for their mates.
