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!!!

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!

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!

Could not ask for more!

  • 5 of 5
I can not say enough great things about this vacation rental. The location was ideal and within walking distance to everything. Every amenity you could ask for was provided. The house was immaculate and exceeded our expectations. We have stayed at many rentals over the years and this one is at the top of our list.

No disappointments here! Suited our family needs! No detail left unnoticed! There is an elevator for disabled. Master Bedroom was spectacular! Kitchen, dining - anything you might need! The recreation/pool/bar/grilling area was superb! Best of all - walking distance to Mucky Duck, The Bubble Room and Doc Fords:)

Anniversary Trip

  • 4 of 5
The home was beautiful and was much more than we needed, however it was our anniversary so we splurged. The home is in a great location in the "Village" on Captiva, very close to restaurants and the few shops on the island. The kitchen was fantastic and we enjoyed many hours lounging by the pool. I would highly recommend the home for larger groups and families, with the exception that there are a lot of stairs.

Best family vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5
We've been having an annual family vacation for the past ten years and this ranks as one of the best. We were ten people, five kids, five adults and we all slept comfortably, great house, beautifully furnished, superbly maintained, well situated near the beach, great restaurants etc.. The photos don't do the house justice, it much more beautiful than the pictures... The landlords are a so nice and helpful. The only problem we had is that we never wanted to leave!! All of us said that we would do it again!

FAMILY TRIP

  • 4 of 5
WE WOULD LIKE TO THANK YOU FOR SHARING YOUR HOME FOR A WEEK. THE HOUSE, SWIMMING POOL, AND ENCLOSED SCREENED IN AREAS WERE GREAT. THE HOUSE EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS. THE BEACHES AND CAPTIVA ISLAND ARE STILL AS WONDERFUL AS I REMEMBER. WHEN WE ARRIVED THE PROPERTY WAS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION OF CLEANESS AND ORGANIZATION. THE ONLY THING I MIGHT CHANGE WOULD BE TO RENT A GOLF CART INSTEAD OF BICYCLES FOR TRANSPORTING EQUIPMENT TO THE BEACH. I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS PROPERTY.
THANKS AGAIN

Owner's Response: Patsy,
What could we have done to make your experience a 5/5? I hope you used the two beach carts to transport chairs, toys, and umbrellas to the beach via Laika Lane, past the Rauschenberg Estate. Unfortunately, in Captiva, we cannot park golf carts at the beach entrance. Thank you for your review...we strive for perfection.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from our family vacation. 10 adults(2 high school seniors), and I am already thinking about returning next year. Property is very well maintained. Its on the main drive through the island, but you would never know it. The pool is secluded/hidden behind foliage, so we hardly noticed any traffic. Many restaurants within walking distance, including The Mucky Duck, The Bubble Room, Key Lime Bistro, Doc Ford's.....Convenience store close too, has almost everything you might need, and prices weren't horribly expensive. We did wait to buy our large quantity items when we went back to the main land. The beach was about a 10 minute walk---that would be the only negative I can think of, but we knew that when we rented---costs a lot more for beachfront! Great vacation, great property.....Thanks!!
