My family very much enjoyed our stay in the beautiful Captiva Vacation Home this past January. We have stayed many, many times on Sanibel and decided to try Captiva this year. It was a very good decision, we enjoyed the spacious, clean, well-equipped home much more than we anticipated. We brought along our own fishing poles and made good use of the fishing dock behind the property. We enjoyed walking our dog around the beautiful yard and noticing the many different fauna. We were fortunate while we were there to see dolphins, an eagle, alligators (at Ding Darling) and of course came back with some beautiful shells. The owners were very helpful with dinner suggestions and side activities, I highly recommend the Edison-Ford Winter Estates tour in Ft. Myers. The walk across the street was made much easier by the use of the cart provided along with the beach chairs, umbrella, coolers, etc. This was the first time we had stayed at a place that was so well-equipped. The kitchen had absolutely everything we needed. The ONLY helpful comment I can make is that the beds were a little worn and were hard on our backs. My son and brother-in-law had both had back surgery and had a difficult time sleeping. Fortunately, this is an easy fix to make a wonderful vacation home the absolute BEST on the island!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Beverly, for taking the time to leave a splendid review. Restful sleep is very important and I appreciate your feedback about the beds because I make an effort to provide my guests with the most comfortable amenities possible. When I replaced the mattresses in the two guest rooms less than a year ago, I selected a level of medium-firmness with the understanding that this was the most comfortable degree with the right amount of support for a good night's sleep. Because my children like their new mattresses so much, I ordered the exact same for the Captiva Vacation Home. The master bedroom mattress is a few years older and in good condition when I replaced the others. I wish I could've helped with this issue when you were here, and I am glad that you had a great vacation.

Spacious Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this Captiva home in June and had a wonderful time! The house was quite large and roomy, and well-equipped with everything we needed. As the other reviewers said, the owners were wonderful and added to the experience of our vacation. They were willing to help out in any way they could and quite nice people just to be around. It felt like we were truly in the jungle; with wildlife, huge palms and tropical plants. My only neutral comment is that there is no sunrise or sunset view from this property, but you can walk to the beach each night for the sunset. We will be returning. Thanks for sharing your home!

My family and I stayed at the Captiva Vacation Home for a week and simply did not want to leave! The home was very clean, private and accessible to the bay and beach. The fishing off the dock was remarkable! Although, a word of advise....do not leave your catch on a stringer for any period of time...as it invites sharks! Yes! A shark came along and ate our catch! We saw it! Had a wonderful experience and will return!

Great place, great dock and beach, great fishing, close to Blind Pass and its activities, great hosts in Ms. Margarethe and Mr. Rene! Like so many others have said, comfortable place and on site owners/hosts, via their home which is all on the property. Would stay again. A+++!

The Perfect and Relaxing Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Each year the women of my family select a vacation spot to relax, play and laugh!!! Captiva was the perfect location and this was the perfect home. The home was spacious, clean and exactly as you see in the photos. The newly remodeled kitchen was equipped with everything you need and actually more than you find with most vacation homes. I have to mention the kitchen cabinets. We loved the cabinets. The private pool was amazing. What a difference it makes when it is your own! Our second favorite spot of the home was the screened-in lanai. We found ourselves out there every evening enjoying the Captiva night air and good conversation. The beach was a very short distance and yes, it felt like our own private beach.

I would highly recommend this vacation home. Margarethe and Rene were welcoming and very accommodating. Oh and their little dog Lulu was absolutely precious…
