I was blessed with the opportunity to stay at Captiva 47 with a few friends I know. At first, I thought there was no way I would ever get that lucky to stay someplace that nice. I'm just your average person, if you will, who never has an opportunity for a vacation like this.
This home was phenomenal. True paradise. I wanted to cry tears of joy upon my arrival. Very nice accommodations, clean and very modernized. Seriously, I pinched myself. I've been to beaches before, however, I was just in complete Aww of this home! The screened in deck was amazing, especially while it rained. Enjoyed reading and eating out there. The sun room is also nice and peaceful. I was pleased to have great TV, internet and washer and dryer. The beds and linens were SO comfortable. Spacious closets, ceiling fans and nice tile/carpeting. It was convienently located. We were able to walk everywhere we went and it was off of the main road. What made it even better was the hospitality shown from neighbors, locals and the groundskeeper. The folks were very nice. Such a beautiful place. I would recommend this home and Captiva Island to anyone looking for fun, solitude and many amenities all in one. Don't get me wrong, all of the homes looked nice. However, Captiva 47 is like smack in the middle and it was so easy to find our way around. This was my first time staying in a beach house before. I've always stayed in hotels. I would love to say I can't wait to return although, I know I will never have that chance again. Literally, I feel as though my stay was a "Once in a Lifetime" kind of thing. I hated to leave and I believe that anyone looking at the above home to rent, you need to do so. You will not be disappointed. Plenty of books to read, board games to play and beach essentials. Enjoy your stay after you make your reservation here. I will remember that house, my vacation there for the rest of my life. Great food around, places to shop and of course the beach, pool and tennis courts. This location is also within walking distance to the chapel and library. I hope to return one day. I guess I should say I can't wait for the day I return! It just may take me awhile. What I can tell you is I will never settle for anything else! Whatever the cost, it's worth it. I'm an over worked nurse who hadn't vacationed in awhile. I wasn't expecting to take away the memories I did. Oh, and the cabinets are great, window glass. Again...make sure you reserve number 47. You'll be glad you did.
