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. Beach towels, chairs, umbrellas and handy cart make for an easy beach day.

The master bedroom on the second floor has a king-size bed, its own full bath, and cable TV. The sun & moon deck is accessible from this room as well as the hallway.
The second floor guest bedroom has two twin beds, cable TV/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 inch wall mounted LED TV. 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 the 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.

About Larry Hahn & Donna Casella
We live in the area and personally maintain our two beach vacation rental homes, the Sun & Moon and the smaller 2 bedroom Mermaid House, 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!
Larry is also a Licensed Florida Realtor.

Why Larry Hahn & Donna Casella 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.
