Overview

Captiva Island House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, sleeps 10

Baybarlyn is a charming Olde Captiva-style home. Built in 1953, this 3,000-square-foot house has been gently altered to allow for modern amenities while preserving a timeless, quaint air. It's open floor plan is great for entertaining. This tropical haven offers 4 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms. It is set on over an acre of natural landscaping for privacy and enjoyment. Chefs will enjoy the fully equipped kitchen and gas BBQ grill. Other amenities include a washer and dryer, 5 TVs, 2 DVD players, 2 stereos with iPod docks, and high-speed wireless internet throughout the home. An enclosed porch adjoining the master bedroom provides a wonderful view of the pool and surrounding foliage.

Right across the street is the home's private beach, a lovely place to relax and read or play in the surf and sand. Captiva features world-class shelling, so you'll be sure to find a few treasures to take home with you. As the day melts into the night enjoy our stunning sunsets.

The pool is large, 32-by-16-feet, heated and naturally landscaped. It's shallow wading ledge is roomy and perfect for little kids to play and splash around. The pool gently slopes to a depth of six feet, with ledges on the side for sitting and relaxing. There are two outdoor showers, great for washing the sand off before entering the home. Baybarlyn is the perfect place for gatherings both large and small.

Stargazing is second to none on Captiva Island. Its distance from the mainland keeps the light and noise pollution to a minimum, allowing the stars to dominate the night sky and the sea breeze to be the only sound heard for miles. If you desire a night in, there are large screen TV's, Xbox, a game closet, and access to Wi-Fi throughout the house.

If you're looking for fun island excursions there are many options within easy walking and/or biking distance. Nearby 'Tween Waters Inn hosts crab racing on Mondays and Thursdays. Local art galleries such as Jungle Drums display the works of island and mainland artists and craftsmen. The island has several marinas where you can rent a boat and cruise around the islands and up the Inter-Coastal Waterway. Bring your own boat and dock it at our shared dock in the back bay. This area is know as a haven for sport fishing. If you enjoy kayaking, you can rent one from various locations on both Captiva and Sanibel. Spend the day exploring the numerous bays and mangrove trails, such as the newly reopened Buck Key.

Restaurants such as The Mucky Duck, The Green Flash, and Key Lime Bistro ensure that a visitors with a desire for delicious food will not be disappointed. For dessert, pick up a giant slice of cake or pie from The Bubble Room, a quirky, 1930s-themed restaurant near the heart of the town. During the winter, you have the privilege of being able to attend serviced at the Chapel by the Sea. A charming one-room schoolhouse-turned-chapel.

Sanibel Island has Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge and Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (C.R.O.W.). These are good places for learning more about the islands and local wildlife. Ding Darling has a beautiful wildlife drive, several walking paths and is known for birdwatching. Tarpon Bay Marina and Wildlife, affiliated with Ding Darling, has a sea animal touch tank and gives educational boat tours of the protected bay area lead by Marine Biologists. C.R.O.W. also features many educational programs.

Whether you are searching for a relaxing, warm getaway during the winter or a fun-filled family vacation in the summer, Baybarlyn with it's enchanting tropical charm will delight you.

Terrific holiday

  • 4 of 5

Our multi generational family just spent 2 glorious weeks on Captiva Island at Baybarlyn. Captiva has changed a lot in the years since we were last there with many big mansions. However, Baybarlyn, tucked in behind a nice hedge across from the ocean, is a delightful mix of old Captiva and new. Spotlessly clean the house, as my son in law said "is a real party house" It could hold a crowd! The kitchen had everything anyone could want (including enough dishes for that party!). The beds were all comfy with nice linens. The pool area is the best!. Designed with kids in mind, and lots of chairs and tables all around it. Numerous beach/pool toys are provided. A few steps across the road leads to a beautiful beach with chairs and umbrellas provided where you can enjoy the gorgeous sunsets. However, they are easily seen from the front porch. A couple of minor issues were quickly handled by Royal Shell, the onsite maintenance people. While it may not be one of the mansions, Baybarlyn is a special house with Captiva history and makes for a great holiday. Would return and recommend. (one thing I would also recommend it locking your car doors while parked in the yard. We were blase and lost 2 GPS systems on our last night!)

Fantastic house on beautiful, relaxing Captiva Island

  • 5 of 5

House is terrific and in a perfect location. Located across the street from the beach and Gulf of Mexico with a great pool in the backyard. House amenities were more than adequate and the kitchen is very well stocked. Myself and family (8 total) had an excellent vacation and really enjoyed the house.

CAPTIVAted by Baybarlyn

  • 5 of 5

I have had the great privilege of spending my summer vacation time in this house for the past several years, and I must say that if you’re looking for an idyllic beach hideout, look no further. This is one of the last remaining original beach houses on the island, and it is clear that this house is well loved. A few of the walls have been hand-painted (the beach scene in the downstairs bathroom is amazing!), and the house is filled with numerous shells and beach knickknacks that the owners have collected over the years. It’s a charming, peaceful place that embodies the words “relaxation” and “vacation.”

Although it’s one of the older homes on Captiva, Baybarlyn is by no means lacking in amenities. The kitchen has been upgraded and is fully equipped for all of your cooking ventures. The swimming pool is a fantastic new addition, and families with children will love the kid-friendly wading end of the pool. If you can’t miss your favorite TV show, no problem: there are several TVs (complete with DVD players) located throughout the house. And if you absolutely must do work while you’re on vacation, connecting to the World Wide Web is a cinch thanks to the high-speed wireless internet.

Baybarlyn is delightfully spacious and can easily accommodate a large group of people, but if you’d like to break away from the crowd, you have only to walk outside and onto the short private path that leads to a gorgeous beach featuring some of the best shelling in the world. It is also a leisurely stroll away from the peaceful Pine Island Sound, where you can relax and watch boats float by on their way to and from the marina. You might even spot a manatee lounging in the quiet waters.

Baybarlyn’s location on the island is perfect: It’s within walking/biking distance of the shops and restaurants in Captiva Proper, but it’s far enough away from the “town hub” to feel exotic and isolated. This house’s placement allows you to make your vacation whatever you want it to be, whether you desire adventure or relaxation. It is an ideal place to stay whether you’re a couple looking to spend a romantic week together or a large family with big beach holiday dreams.

A sign that hangs above the formal dining table says it all: “Life is good at the beach.” Life IS good at the beach -- and it’s better at Baybarlyn.
