  • "We really enjoyed our stay here."

    The cottage is really lovely - exceptionally clean and comfortable. It is very well equipped and in a perfect location close to local amenities. We loved the marine/seaside vibe and decor. Saundersfoot is a perfect base and wonderful in itself but was also excellent for exploring nearby places. Highly recommended. Sandra and David and Martha the dog.

  • "A fabulous stay at Captiva Cottage."

    A wonderful house in a wonderful location - a stones throw from everything that Saundersfoot has to offer. The house was spacious and comfortable (some of the beds were definitely more comfortable than others but as a family of 4 we didn't need to use them all); well equipped and a great range of technology (tvs, xbox etc). We had a slight plumbing issue during our stay which was swiftly and apologetically dealt with. We wouldn't hesitate to return, such a treat to find a dog friendly property in such a fantastic spot.

  • "Captiva Cottage is in a perfect location, only a few minutes walk into Saundersfoot."

    The cottage itself was very clean and well kept, had all the facilities we needed (although took some working out how to use, but owners were more than helpful to assist us). Would definitely look at staying here again for any future visits to the area.

  • "Captiva Cottage is perfectly located to enjoy all that Saundersfoot has to offer."

    Restaurants, bars and beaches are a very short stroll for the cottage. The cottage is spacious and easily sleeps 8 people - worth noting, the twin bedroom is accessed through a double bedroom and may be more suited to children. Although no issues for the 4 of us, only having 1 WC / shower could prove inconvenient to larger groups. The Stone Crab restaurant in the harbour is highly recommended

  • "We had a lovely stay in Captiva Cottage."

    It's close enough to the centre to make it very convenient, but far enough away to be a quiet place to stay. The cottage is finished to a high standard and well kept. The twin bedroom at the back is fairly small, and the "wardrobe" is taken up with high-chairs, so whoever is in there will need to hang clothes elsewhere. One bathroom for 8 people can be a little trying, but we managed ok :-) Great wifi and a good selection of DVD's and games to use. Plenty of bin-bags and dishwasher tablets as well. Thanks for a great stay :-)

    The house is lovely and spacious, plenty of room for the 6 of us, we loved the huge kitchen/diner and took advantage of all the games provided, a credit to the owners.

  • "Beautiful cottage, ideal location well furnished and spotlessly clean."

    Whilst it wasn't important for us as there was only 2 of us travelling, there is only one bathroom (shower and toilet) which may be more problematic if 8 people were staying in the cottage.

  • "Beautiful cottage in a perfect location, close to the beach, harbour and amenities!"

    ! Congratulations to Michael and Lara for the love and thought that's gone into the design and facilities of their special cottage... we loved the theme and the decor, as it reminded us of our own honeymoon on Captiva Island, many years ago...we felt at home there and it provided a perfect little haven of peace and tranquility for a few days away to unwind, relax and regenerate. My only suggestion would be for more worktop space in the kitchen, because for people like us, who like to prepare meals and eat in, there aren't adequate food preparation areas. We hope to return to Captiva Cottage again.

  • "The holiday was a last minute booking due to my wife (39)having stage 4 cancer and one of the wishes she wanted to do was to surround herself with our family and feel free next to the beach."

    It was absolutely fantastic in every way and we didn’t want to leave and come back to reality of starting treatment. If my wife is well enough we would love to return in the future.

The property

A light and airy cottage, with a real feel of the seaside both inside and out with it being just a few minutes’ walk from the pretty harbour, seaside shops and the sandy beach that makes up the fabulous seaside resort of Saundersfoot.

A perfect base for friends and family looking to make the most of the beachside holiday yet having coastal walks from the door and remain a short drive from fabulous days out and a variety of theme parks.

Set over the ground floor, there are four comfy bedrooms and a family shower room.

There is a stylish and bright, well-equipped kitchen, with everything you need to make the most of the relaxing dining area.

A separate sitting area, gives you somewhere to relax of an evening and reminisce about the day’s adventures.

Outside, you can sit in the elevated terraced patio, a deceptively secluded garden area, perfect for a barbecue as the sun sets, with far-reaching sea views over the roof tops of this quaint little village.

Saundersfoot is a fabulous seaside village, with an increasing reputation as a gourmet resort, a selection of eateries using fantastic local produce.

There is the lovely sandy beach to enjoy, a quaint harbour and the coastal path stretches in both directions opening up fabulous walks from the door.

Being in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, you are ideally placed to explore the wonderful coastline with myriad sandy beaches and coves in both directions, such as Amroth and Wisemans Bridge, whilst within walking distance, they are less than a 10 minute drive.

Why not take a trip to the pretty harbour side town of Tenby, with its multi-coloured houses dipping down to the sea and its popular beaches and watersports or perhaps a trip to the seven mile stretch of Pendine Sands, or visit the iconic boathouse, home of the famous Welsh writer Dylan Thomas?

The area offers numerous outdoor activities such as wildlife spotting boat trips, coasteering and an array of watersports, local horseriding or perhaps grab a round of golf.

For those that want a wider variety of days out, why not visit one of the popular attractions such as the Blue Lagoon, an all-weather water park, Folly Farm, Manor House Wildlife Park, Heatherton World of Activities or Oakwood Theme Park, all between 5 and 10 miles away.

With so much to do you may not want to travel too far, however, for those looking to explore, the National Park wraps around the coastline of Pembrokeshire.

With fabulous opportunities to travel to a variety of islands such as Skomer, the seasonal home of the puffins.

The coast and inland countryside is peppered with fabulous walks and diverse countryside, with the nearby Preselli Hills and a variety of quaint towns, villages and the tiny city of St Davids with its striking cathedral.

An ideal base, perfect for friends and family to retreat to after a day soaking up the sun on the beach, walking the fantastic coast path, enjoying the breathtaking countryside, towns and villages or spending the day in one of the local theme parks.
