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.

Fabulous vacation home

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.

We have been coming to Captiva for over 20 years each March. We were lucky enough to find this very special home 4 years ago and would not stay anywhere else. Walking distance to the beach as well as some of our favorite restaurants like the Green Flash, Bubble Room, Key Lime Bistro and the Mucky Duck. Fell in love with the home 4 years ago and each year gets even better with the many updates that the owners do each year. Was pleasantly surprised this year by the change in the very large decking that encloses the pool off the second floor. It added an entire new outdoor room that includes a large Flat screen TV and very comfortable furniture. Spent many a night on this new updated deck. The home has always been VERY clean with updated kitchen appliances added this year. The 5 bedrooms are very spread out and with 4 bathrooms everyone has great privacy. The pictures of the house are good but really do not give you the full feel of how open this house is. Beach chairs are provided and even though we just returned home we cannot wait until next March to return to this very special home away from home. Our family has really enjoyed this home and the memories get better with each passing year. I would STRONGLY recommend this home. We enjoy it as a family but what a great home for a week or so getaway with couples and extended families- so much space and privacy!

Owner's Response: Oh Joe, Thank you!! There's nothing more gratifying that guests like you who are so aware of the changes/improvements and are kind enough to always let us know. I'm elated!!!

Family Wedding

We have been coming to Blue Heaven since July 2001. We went there for a family vacation that year. When ever we get a chance to come to Captiva we use this house for our vacation trip. It is big enough for all of us to spread out. I love sitting on the side deck early in the morning drinking my coffee and listening to the birds. It is so peaceful! The kitchen has everything you need. We love going on the top deck. When a plane flies over you can almost touch it! I am a photo nut, so when the sun comes up you can get great shots. The deck that they added on was great. With the outside T.V. there, we sat out there watching T.V. at night. We had so much room nobody had a problem taking a shower, because we all had our own bathrooms. This time was a special time for our family, because our son was getting married on the beach. He loved everything about Captiva and thought it was the best place to get married. We had a great cook out with his future in-laws and they loved the house and could not believe how much room we had. Downstairs my daughter and son-in-law stayed with the grandkids. It was like their own little apartment. My room, well it was our own little retreat! Shut the door and lay in a king size bed! Loved it! Cannot wait until we come back again! Thank You for a great vacation.

Owner's Response: Joan, I cannot thank you enough for sending me your kind, sweet words and the magnificent photo of your son and his gorgeous wife getting married on the beach! It honestly warms my heart that you've make our house YOUR house for vacations and momentous occasions. We welcome you back with open arms!!!

Blue Heaven - Captiva Island Paradise - just steps from the beach (PWLIOC)

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Nov 20, 2013

Perfect getaway for lifelong friends who gather together for a vacation with our children. Blue Heaven is located on the curve of Captiva Drive just before the heart of the village which places you 100 short steps to the beach and a short stroll to get any breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert or check out the manatees at Jensen's Marina (my favorite place on Captiva). If you have kids under age 10 I recommend renting a golf cart primarily because it's fun and they are street legal in the village but also because it helps transports the kids easier (especially when they are tired). The home and bedrooms are large so you don't feel cramped but let's be realistic...most of your time should be spent on the beach anyway. The rooftop deck offers great views of the bay and a nice option to watch the sunset with a glass of wine (although I prefer a cold coors light in my hand, knee deep in the water while casting out a fishing line with my sunsets). The HUGE deck just off the living room is by far the best part of the home. It allowed us to sit as a group and solve all the worlds problems (with a cooler or two filled with iced down tasty beverages) while watching a football game on the outdoor TV. I can honestly say that in one weeks time I didn't even sit on the new living room furniture as their was no reason to be indoors. The outdoor deck is next to the pool so it's easy to keep an eye on the kids and it is also screened in so no nasty bug spray needed. For anyone who reads any of Captiva Islands reviews and is concerned with "pest control" please understand you are vacationing on an island that is only a few miles wide and you are surrounded at every corner by lush vegetation. Most of the streets in the village aren't even paved...they are crushed shell & sand. Of course there is going to be a bug or two...it's part of the deal and by no means an issue or deal breaker. The grill is a few feet from the pool which allowed us to have an easy cook out. Oh and the pool is very large especially for Captiva Island (some property lines are narrow resulting in a tight fit, rectangular pool) and compared to other homes this pool kicks butt for size, comfort and space. The kitchen is clean and provides ample space for food prep and if you make a mess the dishwasher is new and does the job. Plenty of room for vehicles. Captiva Island and the Blue Heaven home are magnificent...don't miss out. We will be back.

House is dated in need of some upgrades. The house cleaning could definately be better ! The living room couch and pillows are badly soiled. It was not only scary to sit on, but terribly uncomfortable. The house is in need of some tender loving care!!!
Owner's Response: I am stunned by your comments and low rating...which has had a horrible impact. I have to admit, after ALL our phone calls about your daughter's wedding and all the extra I did for you...I am taking this shock, personally. I even arranged for the person before you to stay for 6 days, so that YOU could arrive a day early so that you would be well rested for the wedding. Furthermore, this is the 4th time we have replaced our livingroom furniture. Everyone else has always called our furniture fresh and cheerful!

There is no place called Captiva Shores, we ARE on Captiva Island!!! This is a glitch in the web page. We are the third in from the Gulf beach on one side, to the West and we are the third in from the Bay on the east. Sunrises and sunsets are GORGEOUS in Captiva!!!
