It will remind you of a small lush island in the Caribbean.
"We all screamed "amazing" when we walked in the house because Mom hadn't showed us the pictures. It felt like home after just 1 day. The commute to the beach (20 seconds) and Sunsets were the best!
This was our second trip to Captiva for a family vacation including a toddler. Captiva is a great fit for any family looking for fun, relaxation and a beautiful environment. We will continue to come and Sunset Dreams will be where we stay. The location is excellent with beach access and a short walk to restaurants and recreational options. It has many great spaces, particularly the master bedroom deck and the bay side verandas. The property us very well maintained with multiple areas for a group of 6-8 to gather. We pre-ordered our groceries from Jerry's which was very helpful. For $25 dollars they shop, deliver and put away your groceries. There is a nice set of beach supplies(chairs, umbrellas, cooler, wagon and toys included. We added a few more rental chairs, crib and a child's tent from Island Rentals. They had great service as well dropping off and picking up the rental equipment. Plenty of good choices of restaurants. R C Otters and Key Lime Bistro a toss up for our favorite.
Sunset Dreams was everything it promised it would be! We took our two grown daughters, son in law, 2 year old granddaughter and friend. The condo was perfect! It was super clean with great beds and linens, big bathrooms, perfect kitchen. It had everything we needed to make our vacation stress-less. Everyone had plenty of space to spread out and there was plenty of space for us all to be together when we wanted to hang out inside (which was only first thing in the morning and late in the evening). The views are amazing! Every evening we spent on the beach watching the sun go down. Absolutely the most amazing sunsets I have ever seen. The condo is a very short walk across a narrow, quiet road to the beach. This was important to us as we knew we would want to go back and forth from beach to condo every day without a hike. It took less than a minute to walk from condo to our beach set up! Captiva is a VERY short drive or a quick walk from condo. That was nice also. We saw several other properties while we were there but we would not have chosen any other. Sunset Dreams is perfect! Perfect condo in the perfect location. If you are wanting a lot of action, this area of the beach is not for you. It was very peaceful and quiet. Almost like having the entire place to ourselves. The pool is also very close to the condo and was quiet. The owner suggested several things to do, places to eat, etc. That was very helpful. We ordered groceries from Jerry's in Sanibel and had them delivered the day we arrived. We also ordered beach equipment from Island Rentals which was all waiting for us when we arrived. Although, the condo provides a lot of beach stuff we could have used. We rented a "coupe" from YOLO in Captiva as well as Stand Up Paddle Boards. The Island Store in Captiva has everything you would need also in the way of groceries, etc. They also had some very good homemade pastries! The guys went on two different fishing trips out of Ft Myers and had lots of fun. It was just a super easy, fun, relaxing vacation! Kingfisher property managers were very helpful before and after the trip. We didn't need a thing during our vacation. I will recommend this property and Captiva to all my friends. Thank you, Dan and Kingfisher for allowing us to stay in Sunset Dreams and helping to make our Summer 2014 vacation a memorable one! Hopefully you will allow us back!
I was looking for a place to take my family on a beach vacation. My Mom recently passed away & her leaving us took a toll on our entire family. I wanted my family to spend a week together having the time of our lives & creating memories we could always remember & cherish. I took my 33 year old son & his girlfriend, my 37 year old son, his wife & their 2 year son. My husband is 60.
This place was perfect for the wide span in ages we have in our family. We had a perfect view of the sunset from the upstairs & downstairs balconies. The beach was so close it was perfect. With the wagon and beach chairs provided, going to the beach with a 2 year old was made easy. In the morning I watched the sunrise from my back veranda or walked to the dock on the bay at the back side of the property. I cannot say enough about the location which was perfect. Water on both sides & sunset & sunrise views!
The property was beautiful with a very nice pool & jacuzzi. The upstairs master suite was a special retreat for my husband & me. Everything you could think of the owner has provided. There was internet access, a desk & work station, a shower with dual shower heads, a large tub & of course the views....
There was a large table on the back veranda downstairs where we all got together also & enjoyed the view of the palm trees. This place was well appointed & will not disappoint. Plenty of room so we were not on top of each other & beautifully decorated. Great views from every room!
The owner helped me with planning the trip by providing me with a rental company who delivered a crib & other items for the 2 year old. He gave me tips on where to rent bikes, etc. Dan and Kingfisher vacations were awesome! Quick to respond and very helpful.
My tips for your trip:
- Check out all the toys in the storage shed at back of car port before buying things like pool toys and boogie boards. Even a special screen with handle for shell collecting.
- Take the flashlights that you will find in the villa & go to the beach at night. Watch the crabs run :)
- Snails come out at night by pool walk way.
- Go dancing at "The Key lime Bistro". Fun place.
- Eat at "RC Otters", great wait staff & great food.
- Join the crowd that comes to watch the sunset at the "Mucky Duck".
- Rent a pontoon boat & go to Cabbage Key Island for lunch. We saw so many dolphins on the way that came right up to our boat!
- Go kayaking & see manatees.
We saw dolphins, stingray, pelicans, manatees...
Enjoy! We did, thx Dan!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sunset Dreams a beautiful multiple story twin town home on the Gulf of Mexico!! The home was beautiful, exquisitely appointed, well maintained and exactly as promised. The owner was quick to respond and helpful when we were deciding where to stay. He answered all our questions and provided me with more pictures and a long list of things to do on the Island and other helpful tips that come from knowing a place well.
Sunset Dreams is a wonderfully spacious with lots of separate areas for everyone to enjoy and a huge living room and dining area for everyone to come together! The house has a wonderful large parking space under the home and a darling private elevator for bringing up your luggage and groceries. This elevator was listed in the amenities and I thought oh that is nice but after traveling from Minnesota and buying groceries for a week at Whole Foods in Naples, I was very grateful not to have to carry everything up to the kitchen and 3rd floor bedroom!!!
Location is a priority for us and it was located on the North end of the Island with a perfect view of the gulf!! The road does run between the Gulf and the property but was not noticeable from our gorgeous loft bedroom with a wonderful balcony. The beautiful landscaping gave the property privacy and beauty. We watched the sunset each night on our balconey and slept with the sliding glass door open to the sound of the waves at night which was pure heaven. It was a short walk on the beach into town and we ate outside at the Mucky Duck several times and avoided the parking problems which was another plus for this property!!
I would highly recommend this property to friends. Our family continued to comment all week on how I scored with this property!!! We haved stayed on the Island before and this is our new favorite property!!
What a fabulous home! And that is what we felt like as soon as we walked in - home! This house is a real treat. From the fun, bright colors and art to the comfy and smartly arraigned furniture it makes you feel right at home immediately. The views of the beach and gulf are amazing. We enjoyed them from the house and the beach itself which is just a short trot across the street - beach chairs provided along with a wagon to cart all your beach stuff across the road. You feel like they thought of everything at this gem! Our 3 boys could not believe they had 2 Wii units and 2 guitars for Guitar Hero. They didn't play much because they were at the beach, pool or investigating the island, but the cool factor was still huge! Speaking of the pool, its very nice with a great hot tub and we made many round-trip treks from the beach to the pool and back again. Round trip it's about a minute walk, again a perfect setting. We found the deck off the 2nd floor master suite of the house to be our favorite congregating place. It has the best view and we would enjoy coffee there in the morning, soak up the sun with a book in the afternoon and a glass of wine in the evening watching the sunset. We felt every detail was thought of at this great property; from the soft blankets to the big, bright bath rooms to the colorful dinnerware to the cute checker table in the front window which out boys throughly enjoyed playing as they watched the people shelling on the beach in the mornings. We parked our car upon arrival and didn't get in it again until we were heading for the airport home. No need! Town is a short walk up the beach and we also rented bikes from Yolo and explored the whole island. Plenty of towels both for beach/pool and showering. We had a great time. much of which had to do with this amazing home and the time and energy the owner has put into creating a haven for R & R. In the past, we have always stayed in South Seas while on Captiva, but in the future, we will be staying here.
We had an amazing week staying at your beautiful home. My only regrets are that we couldn't stay longer and that it has taken me a couple of months to write a review. We have four active children, ages 5, 7, 9, and 11 and this was the perfect home and the perfect vacation. For our first couple of days the gulf was extremely calm, and all of us enjoyed diving for shells as we snorkeled and paddleboarded in the gulf. Saw a handful of stingrays, fish, etc.. but pulled up a ton of beautiful shells, before they had a chance to wash ashore. As the wind kicked up a bit the small swell was wonderful for the kids and I to ride the waves on their SUP's and boogie boards. For the remainder of the week, depending on wind direction we spent all our time on the sound side (Pine Island Sound) exploring the canals that lead to and from Braynerd Bayou on our SUP's. It's an easy paddle over and the canals with their mangrove trees alive with crabs were wonderful to explore. We paddled among 6 - 8 Manatees on the way to or from the Bayou each day. The manatees were very curious and friendly like a golden retriever. We also saw several dolphins, small hammerhead sharks, rays, and more fish leap out of the air than I can possibly count and too many birds to mention. The kids felt so adventuresome paddling with ease through the tight canals and Bayou - it's truly another world! The accomodations are exactly as advertised - truly a spectacular place! The kids room, wii, pool, throwing rocks to knock down the coconuts across the street, shelling, wildlife - it all was a great adventure - Thank you for everything.
Captiva is a tropical paradise like no other in the United States. Captiva Island is a barrier island in the tranquil Gulf of Mexico on Florida’s southwest coast. North of Sanibel Island and West of Fort Myers, world-renowned Captiva is also just three hours from Tampa and Miami by car. A narrow seashell-laden island famous for its dramatic sunrises and sunsets, celebrity visitors and creative residents, Captiva is home to private waterfront estates, two large resorts and several charming small inns. The heart of the island is its vibrant ‘downtown,’ coined “the village,” in which visitors and locals stroll among colorful galleries, shops and restaurants with live music and water views. Captiva is also a water sports destination and offers boaters multiple marinas with overnight dockage.
As you can tell by the picture above, one of the island’s most beautiful gifts is the sunset over the Gulf of Mexico right outside your front door. Captiva is one of the furthest points west in Florida which gives you the best view and amazing colors fill the sky. National Geographic Traveler magazine names Sanibel and Captiva as among the world’s best islands. Travel and Leisure magazine rated Sanibel and Captiva as having some of the top shelling Beaches in the world, describing it as a “Sheller’s Mecca where you can find the best unburied treasures in the US”.
You will be captivated by beautiful alluring Captiva Island, where once it is said pirates roamed, conquistadors explored and Calusa Indians called home. The mystery and adventures are still here. Treasures to be found include; spectacular white sand beaches scattered with treasures from the sea (pastel colored seashells) and breathtaking sunrises and sunsets. Captiva is one of the few islands literarily made up of shells created over thousands of years, and one of the places considered best in the world for shelling. The islands geography of lying east and west rather than north and south as most islands, allows Captiva to catch abundant sea shells from the Gulf of Mexico.
The famous J. N. Ding Darling National wildlife Refuge is second only the beaches as the islands top attraction with 6400 acres of forest and watershed making up one of the largest mangrove wildernesses in the country. It is in the top five most visited refuges in the US. Each year over 800,000 people visit the refuge and explore the wildlife drive. You can take a self guided car or Tram tours or experience the professional guided tour. Birders have spotted nearly 250 species in the refuge, many of them rare types that life-list keepers flock to see. Call 472-8900 for information.
From the end of Sanibel the beach stretches 5 miles to the northern tip of Captiva Island at Redfish Pass. Captiva Drive is a road with giant cactus, colorful bougainvilleas and other tropical flora along a stretch of sea and sand ending at “Captiva Village”. It will remind you of a small lush island in the Caribbean.
There are superb accommodations, restaurants & shopping. Golfing, tennis, fishing, boating, and all types of children's activities are available in this small slice of paradise.
