CAPTIVA - POOL HOME - FOOTSTEPS TO BEACH AND BAY. 3RD PROPERTY FROM BEACH.

Captiva Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 10) Great privacy.

Beautiful, tropical, two level home with kitchen, living room and five bedrooms; four baths, clean, white tiled floors, living room deck (12x42) with OUTDOOR TV which is within the pool cage, plus rooftop sunning deck, screened & heated pool, steps from the white sandy beach on the Gulf of Mexico and steps from the Bay. ( We are the 3rd property in from the Gulf beach on one side...and 3rd property in from the bay on the other. Perfect for shelling, fishing, kayaking, biking and sunsets, a quick walk to charming restaurants and unique shops and art galleries in the Village area of Captiva. Tennis and golf are available in Sanibel just minutes from Captiva. I think Tween Waters Inn will let you rent a pass to play tennis. We are within the 'Village' area where you may use rented golf carts.

Our first level may also be used as a private In-law Suite or Nanny Suite with its own bath, living room, kitchenette. It has a secondary private entrance for added convenience. The 'Cabana' room with kitchenette and sliders to pool, may be used for bedroom with 2 twin beds and 'Jack and Jill' bath. Each of the other three bedrooms has a private bathroom and are a king, queen and 2 twins.

Sleeps ten; pets allowed with deposit; all modern amenities including HEATED pool and sand chairs for the beach , big stainless steel gas grill with one sauce burner , WIFI internet and all bedrooms have flat screen televisions. Outdoor TV on 12 x 42 deck. Flat Screen TV in livingroom too. Rented weekly. From $2300 to $5500 depending on week and season. Multiple week discount negotiable. Possible shorter than one week rentals if last minute, will be prorated. Most pets allowed. We pay the cleaning fee. We pay the Florida Lodging tax of 11%. Most homes add this on later. No surprises. Best for planning trips.

New fridge and dishwasher. Brand new roof decking. We are SO excited about adding on to the deck off the living room level which will take it all the way across the entire back of the house. The deck is now 12' by 42'. New carpeting in the screened porch and the staircase between levels. New living room furniture - see photo.

All of this has been finished already. We are tickled pink with this year's changes!

Guestbook comments from the owner
This is a terrific place to have a vacation. The flexible floorplan allows us to satisfy a lot of plans. There are three bedrooms and three attached bathrooms "upstairs" on the main level of the house. BUT...there are also a bedroom with two twins and a kitchenette and a HUGE king bedroom with sitting area and kitchenette and "jack & jill" bathroom between the two. The entry level can use its Private entrance, but is also 2 more bedrooms for the whole house accessed through the front door atrium entry to the house. Perfect!! 3 to 5 bedrooms with great privacy for "In-laws" Friends or a Traveling Companion/Nanny. The pool is GREAT. Steps to the Beach AND to the Bay. Great roof deck views of the water. It is such a cheerful and bright house. Welcome to Blue Heaven.

We had a great afternoon at the Crafts Fair in Sanibel. My husband took this of us standing in front of a mirror we wanted to buy.

The Owner purchased this house in 2000

It's so fabulous to go out of our driveway and go west, three properties to the Gulf beach or leave our driveway and go east three properties and be on the calm Bay waters. We are very close to all the restaurants and shops on Andy Rosse, but sweetly out of ear-shot! We are within the 'Village area where you are allowed to use rented golf carts. No matter what fun we want...it's SO EASY.

Just added to the deck which is now a tremendous 12 x 42. New Living Room and new Deck furniture. A brand new OUTDOOR TV on the Living Room deck. All under the protection of the screened pool cage for your comfort. Rooftop sunning deck. Brand new Fridge with filtered water and ice maker. New dishwasher. We have more bedrooms with their own bathrooms than all other properties in our price range. Of our 5 bedrooms, three of them have en suite bathrooms & 2 share a connecting bathroom. This makes it really easy for many people to get ready at the same time and offers convenience and privacy. Our house is ALWAYS sunny. We have ample sky-lights which have heat and glare shields. The beautiful swimming pool is heated and has attractive pavers. We are the third property in from the gulf beach on one side and the third in from the bay on the other. The driveway gate can be closed for privacy and most of the property is fenced. We are constantly told the pictures don't do us justice. We enjoy having many returnees to Blue Heaven year after year.

Captiva Dream Home!

  • 5 of 5
For 30 years my wife and I have been coming to Sanibel - Captiva and this was a family vacation we'll never forget. If you want to stay somewhere that feels like home this is the place. The owners are wonderful to work with and make sure every need is met. We had a great time in a house just steps from the beach. After a day on the beach come back to your own pool to relax and sit out on one of the many decks this house has to offer. The house is big enough to enjoy your own private time plus has the feel of home for everyone to get together in the living room. If you want to experience Captiva living at it's finest this is the place!

Fabulous House!

  • 5 of 5
We just left, had a great week and very relaxing time. The house was very nicely furnished (although I would have liked to have a real broom!) We liked how close it was to the beach and then having the Pool to come home to was the best! The Green Flash restaurant was fantastic, so was the Key lime Bistro. I'd come back here for sure...hope we get the chance next summer. But without the dog the area isn't very dog friendly. No dogs allowed on certain parts of the beaches or state park islands (Cayo Casta) cause of the turtle nesting season. Oh and we wished we had reserved a golf cart they were all sold out, gotta reserve them ahead.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. I hope your plan to return next year works out. We keep two brooms and a pretty new canister vacuum cleaner in the broom closet at the top of the steps. I think our area is VERY dog friendly...I even see some in restaurants and stores. I'll help you arrange to rent the golf cart for next time. It's nice that we are within the golf carts allowed Village area.

My Blue Heaven

  • 5 of 5
From the first contact with the owner, to the last day of our wonderful family vacation, the owner was attentive to our needs and exhibited true hospitality. Upon arrival at this lush tropical oasis, where the azure skies and aqua waters melted away stress, we knew we were in Blue Heaven! A short walk to shopping and restaurants, with ideal location nestled footsteps between the beach and bay, this is the place to stay. Spacious bedrooms which each included en suite bathrooms was a big plus for a large group! The gathering place was on the lovely large deck to talk about the day's events which included manatee and dolphin sightings, beach strolls, flora and fauna, and magnificent sunsets. The entire back area of the house was screen enclosed to keep out the bugs. The pool was so refreshing and we thoroughly enjoyed our infant grandson's first experience in the water. On the top deck, which is marvelous for stargazing, we caught the tail end of a meteor shower! The private downstairs Master Suite was amazing. A great setup with refrigerator, sink and living area. We also enjoyed the large outdoor grill for several cookouts. You will not find a better place to stay. I hope to return one day and I am already missing My Blue Heaven.

Please return ...you will always be welcome AND...we try VERY hard and SUCCEED in rarely if ever raising the rate of staying for returnees!! THAT is how much WE enjoy, YOUR enjoyment. I would love to think people can look forward to coming year after year. Thank you!!

OH MY GOSH !!! The Blu Heaven !!!!

  • 5 of 5
What an awesome place to stay for a very tropical vacation. The house is stunning. Way beyond our expectations. We had 4 couples and one child. Everyone had their own bedroom and bathroom and privacy if wanted. Loved the huge deck and pool area. Walked to most everything. One of the most beautiful places we have stayed. The owner is remarkable. She offered us an extra day because the previous renters left a day early. FREE !!! Who does that ????? Definitely one of our most memorable vacations. Would like to go back and take my daughters and their husbands. Thank you !!!!

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from our week at Blue Heaven. This was our second stay at this wonderful house. As on our last visit 2 years ago, it was a multi-generation vacation. We loved the upgrades and especially enjoyed the enlarged screened deck with the comfortable furniture. This was our morning meeting place for coffee and discussion. The great layout of the home offered space and privacy and it never felt crowded. At the end of the day, everyone regrouped for dinner. When not cooking at home, we were able to walk to restaurants near by- our favorite being The Mucky Duck. We have been vacationing on Sanibel/Captiva for 35 years. When we can all get together at the same time, there is no better place to stay then at Blue Heaven.

Owner's Response: I was so excited about your visit because i KNEW if you loved Blue Heaven enough to return, that the changes would thrill you!! Delighted by your letter and I enjoyed imagining you out there on the huge deck, deciding what to do each day, over your morning coffees. Thank so much!!

Fabulous vacation home

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I hosted our two daughters, son-in-law and four grandchildren to a family vacation at Blue Heaven. It was the perfect location and everyone was delighted. We could easily walk to Captiva village, restaurants, the beach and the bay. Bicycles made it possible for each of us to go out on our own to explore the island and Santibel. The physical layout of the house accommodated the different family members and the furnishings were comfortable and plentiful. All nine of us sat around the dinner table comfortably which was a pleasure. The covered pool and patio were much appreciated as was the rooftop deck for late night star gazing. There is a resident osprey who watched over us each evening!
Having owned rental property ourselves, we are aware of the fine balance between "rental" and 'personal" belongings. The owners had furnished their home to make us feel as if we were their personal guests. Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us. We cannot wait to return.

Each have kitchenettes. The upper level bedrooms each have a private bathroom. King, Queen and 2 twins. Fabulous for privacy.
