Captiva Island House Rental Photos and Description

3BR/3BA Oceanside Vacation Rental Pool House, Sleeps 8, Captiva, Florida USA

Our Sun & Moon House, a 3 br/3 bath Key West inspired home on popular Wightman Lane, is only a two to three minute walk down the sandy lane to the beach -- rated the most romantic for its calm, warm water, tropical atmosphere, and gorgeous sunsets. The restaurants in the village are just as close.

The decor is always kept updated and amenities reflect a finished, comfortable home, rather than a rental unit. The new kitchen is fully equipped for any entertaining needs. Dining choices include a dining room or the screened, furnished lanai by the newly re-finished swimming pool and paver stone covered deck, or even the furnished sun & moon deck on the top level.

The glass sided living room offers a panoramic view of the swimming pool and the tropical foliage. The entertainment center has a 42' HDTV, DVD, and an Onkyo stereo receiver with i-Pod docking, 6-disc CD changer and Infinity speakers. A large collection of CDs are provided. Wireless Internet and free long distace calling in the 48 states. Beach towels, chairs, umbrellas, ice coolers and handy beach cart make for an easy beach day.

- NOTE! We're heavily booked this season. If our calendar shows your date preference is already reserved, send us a request, and with a Florida Realtor's license, we'll respond with available Captiva homes we know and trust at no extra cost to you.

The master bedroom on the second floor has a king-size bed, its own full bath, and 32" HDTV. The "sun & moon" deck is accessible from this room as well as the hallway.

The second floor guest bedroom has two twin beds, HDTV/DVD, Receiver and CD Player, and its own bath in the room.

The first floor guest room, separated from the main living area for privacy, has a full bath, desk workspace, and 32" wall mounted HDTV. It's perfect for another couple, the grandparents, or a nanny for the children.

Naturally, all linens are provided and you'll find everything in perfect, move-in condition. Beach towels, lounge chairs, and umbrellas are provided for the beach. Our pool lanai is totally furnished and a Weber gas grill is ready for a cookout.

Biking is wonderful on Captiva and Sanibel Island and our men's and ladies' aluminum 7-speed beach cruiser bicycles are provided for your exclusive use.

Even more information: Bikes for younger children or trailers for our bikes can be rented and delivered to your door. The best restaurants in Captiva's village are no more than a two to three minute walk away. Golfing on two 18-hole courses, The Dunes and Beachview, are just 20 minutes away on nearby Sanibel Island. Our Guest Guide, found in the living room, lists many of our personal recommendations to get your vacation started quickly.

This home is not managed by a management company, but by us, the owners. We personally supervise and assist our cleaning staff each Saturday. As the last to walk out the door prior to your arrival, we can assure you the Sun & Moon is one of the most immaculate and best prepared homes on Captiva, both inside and outside.

We personally own and maintain the Sun & Moon and our smaller house, the Mermaid. You are assured of a perfectly prepared house, both inside and out, as we're the last to leave the house before you arrive.

About Larry Hahn, Owner

We live in the area and personally maintain our two beach vacation rental homes, the Sun & Moon and the smaller 2 bedroom Mermaid House (perhaps the most popular renmtal house on Captiva), to provide maximum attention to detail. We don't leave the house for a management company as most owners do. We really think our homes are the two best prepared on the island, regardless of rental cost!

In addition to being part of the preparation team each Saturday, Larry is also a Licensed Florida Realtor.

Larry Hahn, Owner purchased this house in 2002

Why Larry Hahn, Owner chose Captiva Island

Captiva is a boutique type Island, often compared to Aruba without the wind, or Hawaii without the volcanos. Captiva is a tropical Carribbean style island and looks nothing like the rest of Florida. The Sun & Moon is centrally located in the village center on the beach side of the village. There are no streets to cross between our house and the beach.

What makes this house unique

For some it's the immaculate preparation of the house and pool, for others it's the style of furniture always kept fresh, perhaps the great audio system with i-Pod docking and poolside speakers, or perhaps the HD TV in the living room and LCD tv in each bedroom. Some just love the unique beach cart we assembled with special oversize balloon tires. It's easy to haul all our beach chairs, umbrella and ice cooler to the beach with this handy cart. Let's not forget the 7-speed aluminum bicycles we also provide. And our large top floor furnished sun & moon deck is always well used for a great tan or star gazing on a clear Captiva night..

Guestbook comments from the owner

We spend a week in Florida each January with 2 of our adult children and 2 grandchildren from Fairbanks, AK and this year chose Captiva. The Sun and Moon house was absolutely perfect for the 6 of us. First and foremost for our group, the Sun and Moon house is extremely clean, bug free and comfortably furnished.

The grandchildren and their parents had 2 very large bedrooms and adjoining baths on the second floor and we had a suite in the back of the first floor that could be closed off from the rest of the house. The privacy afforded by the floor plan works very well for extended families.

We may have stayed in more luxurious villas in Florida but never in a home so well equipped and well cared for. We didn't even need to replace paper products during our stay! The kitchen is very well appointed with quality dishware and cooking equipment.

It is obvious that Larry and Donna take great pride in the home and have put a lot of thought into providing for the comfort and convenience of their guests. Everything you need for the beach is provided and they have even reviewed local restaurants and have suggestions for shopping and activities in the area. From the home you are a short walk to the beach and many restaurants.

Our favorite feature was the heated pool in the large screened pool area that the grandkids could use even when it was too cool for the beach.

We loved the whole experience and will go back next year. Thanks, Larry and Donna! You can't go wrong with one of their properties or Captiva.

Owner's Response: As the owners, we personally take charge of preparing our Captiva houses each Saturday for our incoming guests. We're the last to close the door prior to your arrival, so we know quality control is high. You'll find everything perfectly clean and organized, both inside and poolside, all beds perfectly made, beach chairs, umbrella and beach cart ready, extra propane for the gas grill, and the house lights and music on for your arrival. This is why we know the good reviews will continue. Larry & Donna

Fabulous! Excellent! We can't wait to return.

The Sun and Moon house was perfect. 3 bedrooms. 3 bathrooms. Well appointed living and dining area. Kitchen with all cooking utensils needed. Gas grill outside near the pool. Living room with TV, music and nice sound system. Pool and patio area that worked well for my girls and entertaining friends. Larry supplied all the necessary beach equipment, toys, buckets, chairs, towels, adult bikes, handy wheeled cart to bring everything to the beach. We rented (2) kid bikes that were delivered and picked up from the house at a good price.

The beach was a 3 minute walk down a private road and small path. The Captiva General Store was a 3 minute walk away. During the day fresh seafood is sold from the store and the crab cakes and shrimp were FABULOUS.

Mucky Duck, bubble room RC Otters, Starbucks, Ice Cream, Mexican and other restaurants and stores were all within walking distance.

We did not use our car 1 time during the 7 days at the house.

The beds, linens, towels were all supplied.

Laundry next to the master bedroom with enough soap to do 5 loads.

Hairdryers in all bath rooms. Phone to make local calls. Cell reception is horrible, I had nothing with T-Mobile. Sun and Moon had wifi that worked extremely well. It was great being disconnected.

There are lot's of stairs - so if you do not do well with stairs, you may have issues. 15 steps to the main level and 15 steps to the second floor. It is a good work out.

Will we be back - YES!!!!!!

US - (2) Adults in our 40's and (2) kids 9 and 7.

Thank you Larry - We had a great time.

Owner's Response: I've always thought if your house makes the children happy, it makes for a great vacation. If the adults also have a great time we've done our job as hosts well. Thanks to Sarah and Andy for the approving review and do hope they return again!

I could of spent forever here and at the Mucky Duck! I couldn't of asked for a better vacation! A week wasn't long enough! Thank you for letting us stay in your home :)

It is rare for anything to be as good or better than advertised. That being true, Sun & Moon is the exception. It was immaculate, beautiful, inviting and exactly as described. It was less than a 3 minute walk to several restaurants, the market and the beach. Larry saw that everything was perfect from the moment I stepped out of the car until I stepped back in. I can't wait to return. Teri Aulph

Great house in great location!

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a great week on Captiva Island at the Sun and Moon. House was exactly as pictured on the site and perfect for our family of four - including a 10 year old and 16 year old. House nicely laid out with 10 year old in the fish room upstairs down the hall from the master bedroom and the teenager in the suite on the first floor. Kitchen exceptionally well stocked with great pans and plenty of plates/bowls/cups/utensils. All in excellent condition - best pans ever in a rental! House is very comfortable (beds included) with mutiple living spaces (upper deck, pool deck, deck by front door, living room). Also perfectly located on Wightman Lane - close to beach and village. Kids could walk freely everywhere and loved that freedom. Beach items and cart were wonderful - easy to transport to beach and back easily. Overall we had a very relaxing week in a lovely house that was well taken care of and nicely decorated. We'd love to go back to Captiva and if we do we'll want to stay here.

Lovely home in great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week at this holiday home with are 2 children aged 20 and 17. Everything was perfect. The house is well maintained and had been very well prepared for us. Spotlessly clean. Everything we needed was available. Lovely pool and outside area. Few minutes walk to beach. Several very good restaurants within easy walking distance. A fantastic place for a relaxing break. We would definitely recommend.

Owner's Response: Chris brought his family from W. Yorkshire, UK for this visit to Captiva. Billy Joel was playing on the house audio system for their arrival as they requested, as we do our best to accommodate our guests in every way possible. We're pleased our Sun & Moon House was found to be perfect for their stay after such a long trip. We met them prior to their departure and do hope they can return!


Car: recommended

Southwest Florida is the surrounding area serviced by Ft Myers' Southwest Regional International Airport (RSW). One of the 'Crown Jewels' of this area is Captiva Island, just a 35 mile, very pleasant drive from RSW. Captiva Island is described by some as Hawaii without volcanos, or Aruba without the wind. However you relate to it, it's not like a typical idea of Florida. We locals just think of it as a laid back, Carribean style tropical island on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico.
