CAPTIVA ISLAND BEAUTY!

Captiva Island House Rental Photos and Description

4 BR+ Den, 4.5 BA (Sleeps 10)

Absentminded is the perfect vacation home located in the center of the Village of Captiva.

This 4 bedroom/4.5 bath private home comfortably sleeps 10 (family members or multiple couples) in a beautifully furnished island style. The house features a three story caged lanai and heated pool with spa and comes fully equipped with great amenities including a built in gas grill on the pool lanai!

Less than 1 block: To the Beach for shelling, sunbathing and swimming,

To the Bay for fishing, boating, manatee watching,

To Restaurants and shops,

To Southseas Resort...

Ground floor entrance is inviting and functional with four separate lockers to store all your beach supplies (or those nasty winter coats and boots) while you enjoy the Captiva Sunshine! The beach towels are here in the entrance so don't forget to pick one up before you head to the beach or pool! The two car garage has plenty of beach chairs, beach carts, and beach umbrellas for your short walk down Laika Lane to Captiva's beautiful beach. The garage even features elevator access (for our guests requiring accessibility), an extra refrigerator and freezer, and bicycles (available for an extra charge).

Welcome to the Sunshine!!!!

Walking onto the main floor of the house, you’re greeted by the florida sunshine as it streams through plantation shutters into an open floor plan AND the Shelly the Turtle prominently displayed on the main wall of the Great Room. 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 well equipped and large kitchen with breakfast nook is inviting for the cook and the take-out crowd alike. The adjacent dining room includes a dining table with seating for 10 people and double french doors out to yet another screened deck overlooking the pool. 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!!!

Three upper level bedroom suites!!! Walk up a few stairs to the third level and the three additional bedroom suites. The first suite, the Black and White Room, has a king-sized bed with a large full bathroom with step-in shower. The 2nd suite features a queen-sized bed with an attached bathroom with a full size tub for bathing little ones. The master suite is huge with a king-sized bed, an en-suite large bathroom with double vanity sinks, jacuzzi tub, separate shower, and dressing table with terry covered dressing chair. Master suite occupants will lounge on the private deck in their “cuddle chairs” overlooking the pool area below. Pine Island Sound is visible from this deck.

Ground floor pool deck!!!: The ground floor lower level includes a half-bath powder room convenient to the large three story screened-in entertainment/pool room with a built-in gas BBQ grill, bar height table, teak bar, and multiple lounge chairs for lazing around the heated pool and spa. The pool deck also features an outdoor shower and pool changing room for our guests. This is an amazing outdoor room, you will never want to leave the house!!!

This is an amazing house was completely updated in 2012!!!

We are family owned and operated by multiple generations of the same family. Even the in-laws joined the fun!

Gail Garrow purchased this house in 2003

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!

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!

Dear "Absentminded" owner:
We have enjoyed a lovely week at your charming Captiva home and are sad to
see our vacation end. However we have enjoyed it so much we have been
looking at real estate and have put in a offer on a coachhouse at The
Renaissance in Fort Myers!
We especially enjoyed:
a private boat cruise to North Captiva and South Seas Resort
Dinner (New Year's Eve) at the Mad Hatter Restaurant
Bird watching at Ding Darling Park
bike riding, sunset gazing and relaxing at the beach
Many thanks and Happy New Year!!!

Stayind in this beautiful house was great. We loved everything about it. The
days were very fun. The kids would swim in the pool, play pool on the pool
table and play video games. They had a blast. We had wonderful food at the
Bubble Room. We recommend you eating there. We would have family over
here and they loved Absentminded. Whenever we weren't here we would be
at the beach or taking a walk around this beautiful island. Being here and
renting a house on Captiva Island for the first time made a great vacation.
We would love to come back again. Thank you so much for sharing your
home with us!

The house was beautiful, the pictures don't do it justice! The space was nice for
the 6 of us, especially having a bathroom each! The pool was a godsend on the
hot afternoons. The Mucky Duck is recommended, the food was lovely and a
brilliant place to watch the sunset. All in all I've had a lovely, chilled out week at
Absentminded and hope to return in the future.

We had a great week and loved the house. This isour fifth visit to
Sanibel/Captiva but our first staying on Captiva. Everything was lovely-even the
racoon that surprised Neil on the porch! Everyone enjoyed the pool and having
their own space. Alan and Jen particularly loved the Master suite - especially the
lanai with the cuddle chairs late in the afternoon. Very snug!
