Winter means it’s time to think ahead to the summer, and, perhaps even further into the future, where you might consider spending the colder months in a warm, tropical climate. To do so, you need a place to stay.

Coconut Cottage in Captiva, Florida could be your winter home-away-from home. Built in 1958, the darling two-bed-two-bath retains plenty of its original charm while boasting sleek, modern updates like marbled kitchen and bathroom countertops. With soaring, beamed ceilings, and white wood-paneled interior walls, shuttered windows, and hardwood floors, it’s a lovely, sun-drenched retreat with a screened-in porch, open deck, and easy access to the beach.

The property, located at 11539 Wightman Lane, sits on a 10,118-square-foot lot among palm trees and lush vegetation and can be yours for $1,575,000.
