Welcome to the Sunshine!!!!

There is plenty of seating for all our guests, a 55 inch LCD TV and DVD player, cathedral ceilings with a ceiling fan, and a wall of windows with french doors leading out to the screened upper living-room lanai with a spiral staircase to the pool deck below.

The main floor king-size bedroom suite has a full bathroom with step-in shower. The office/den includes a desk, book cases, and extra sleeping space with a daybed and trundle. The main level is also equipped with a washer and dryer in it's own laundry room so pack light!!!

Why Gail Garrow chose Captiva Island
We love Captiva Island. We vacationed here for years and decided to make it our permanent home in 2005. It's a little bit of heaven right off the Florida coast!
Guestbook comments from the owner
Thank your for sharing "Absentminded" with our family. We had an incredible
vacation. The weather was awesome, the proximity to Andy Rosse Lane and
the beach was great for our 4 teenagers. Everything we needed was within
walking distance. We really enjoyed eating at the "Bubble Room" - such
yummy cake, and "Matzaluna" - great Italian food.
Your house is gorgeous- loved the pool! It was great that every bedroom
had their own bathroom- no arguing between the girls and boys at shower
time! The house had everything we needed for our wonderful stay on
Captiva. We will miss being here...this was our first time visiting
Sanibel/Captiva...it was more beautiful than expected. Thanks again!
