Captiva Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Bird of Paradise offers a luxurious escape from the non-stop hustle of everyday life. Whether you're looking for a quick, quiet getaway or a month-long adventure, this modern home is the perfect vacation destination for relaxing and making lasting memories. Our guests book their vacations year after year as the Bird of Paradise has become their tropical home away from home.

Located at 11525 Chapin Lane, a three-story home nestled within Captiva's lush vegetation, Bird of Paradise makes you feel secluded within your vacation oasis, yet it's within just a short stroll to Village Center where you'll find quaint shops, fresh produce, art galleries, restaurants and activities for all ages.

The home's main living level is on the second floor and features all the warmth, comforts and conveniences of home. The great room features a 20-foot, exposed beam ceiling and a comfortable family gathering and dining area. Adjacent to the fully-equipped kitchen is a screened-in lanai for quiet morning coffee while listening to the sounds of indigenous wildlife and waves softly crashing on the shore. Two guest rooms and two baths complete the second story with the spacious master suite on the third level overlooking the great room.

Bird of Paradise is just three homes away from the pristine, white sand beach and clear blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico. This child-safe walk down Palm-covered Chapin Lane takes you by the island's library and just past the Chapel by the Sea - for those seeking a destination wedding.

And when you've had your fill of gulf-side sunning and beachcombing, the home's four outside decks, some with screen enclosure, are perfect settings for a refreshing cocktail and conversation before dinner, quiet time, relaxation or reading. Also enjoy the seclusion of the home's large heated pool and its spacious deck; the area is enclosed from the elements and ideal for early evening cat naps or early morning swims.

Guestbook comments from the manager
My family and I traveled from Germany for our tradition of holiday on the island. We have stayed in 6 different Captiva homes and the Bird of Paradise is by far our favorite. The huge pool with bubbler was a big added plus. Quiet street, short walk to town and water. We are booking again for next year. It was lovely meeting the owners, Michele and Dan as well. We will be back again and again.

Professional family from the Midwest has owned this luxury home for several years and takes great care in keeping it updated with all the modern amenities.

In all our years of travel we have never found a place as magical as Captiva.

Great Girls' Getaway!

4 girls celebrating a friend's 65th birthday...and this home couldn't have been more perfect for our trip. The home is in a great location. The owner Michele was very nice to work with and offered great suggestions on things to do. You can walk to most things, and the beach is very close. The home is clean and comfortable. We spent our time near the pool or in the living room. Captain Nelson of Jensen's Water Taxi took us by boat to Pine Island and Cabbage Key. Don't miss the crab races at Tween Waters...loads of fun! If you want to relax by the pool or get out and explore Florida, this is a great place to stay.

Restful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5
My family has spent several summers on the island and our favorite rental home is the bird of paradise. It has all the comfort of home, but it is truly a vacation get-away from our busy day to day lifestyle. The home is quiet, clean and has everything my family needs to enjoy ourselves. It is a short walk to the beach and to the excellent island shops and restaraunts. The pool is our favorite after we have spent time on the beautiful beach and hunting shells. I highly recommend this property to anyone.

As Good As It Gets

  • 5 of 5
Everything about this house and its setting turned out to be even more pleasant that we could have anticipated. The house is spacious and lends itself to be occupied not just by a family but also by a number of couples. At the house, the pool and porches and other outdoor amenities offer hours of fun and diversion. Away from the house, it is an easy walk to the beach, several oustanding restaurants, grocery store, and more. One can enjoy activity or leisure in whatever proportions one chooses. That tends to define just what a real vacation ought to be.

Dream Paradise

  • 5 of 5
I was amazed when I first saw this property. It is as beautiful as the pictures. It is spacious, private, clean and has a wonderful feel. It is truly as comfortable as being in your own home. Every amenity is provided, including beach chairs, toys, etc. With just a short walk to the beach and the town, you can walk wherever you want to go. If you just want to lounge around the home, you couldn't be more comfortable - take a swim in the private pool, watch a movie, play on the computer. You can tell that the owner really cares about the comfort and enjoyment of the guests. With all of the rooms and sleeping arrangements, you could easily accommodate more than one family.

We walked along the beach every day, took walks through the beautiful town, ate dinner at the Mucky Duck, got groceries at the local grocer - who was very accommodating, listened to music, etc. I certainly did not want to go home when the week was over. I would recommend this property to anyone and will take advantage of every opportunity to go back!!!

Bird of Paradise is truly Paradise

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at this home was truly special. The home is beautifully decorated and very spacious with so many pretty views from the various balconies. It's definitely updated and first class. As a bonus, the property is located just down the street from the beach, definitely within walking distance. If we could move in, we would!

Captiva and Sanibel Islands are connected by many miles of safe and protected bike paths. Bikes are easy to rent. Golf carts are available to rent on the island as well. So much to see if you love wildlife from manatees to sea turtles to Osprey. Let's not forget the most amazing sunsets in the country nightly.
