Captiva Island House Rental Photos and Description
House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Gorgeous, three bedroom home, located in the heart of charming Captiva Island. Recently renovated and beautifully decorated! Many lovely upgrades, such as porcelain tile, plush carpeting, French doors and plantation shutters just to name a few. The home features a spacious, fully equipped kitchen with luxury stainless steel appliances including a side by side refrigerator/freezer with ice and water in the door, ceramic topped range and large over the range microwave. Since this our family's second home, we provide items not usually found in the kitchen of a typical 'rental home'. We provide you with a coffee maker with several packets of high quality Columbian coffee, a plentiful supply of non dairy coffee creamer and two types of sweetener (sugar and splenda) . You will also be glad to know that you won't need to purchase salt or pepper, herbs and spices, foil paper, foil trays, saran wrap or paper towels. Hungry? Use our Panini sandwich maker to prepare a delicious hot sandwich to satisfy the afternoon munchies or use our Belgian waffle maker to prepare fresh waffles in the morning.

We have three new High Definition flat screen televisions, each with internet ready DVD players allowing you to use our NetFlix account to access their inventory of 40,000 movies to instantly stream movies directly to your TV , We also have an additional extensive DVD library, and a large screened patio outside of the living room with a table and four comfortably padded chairs which is the perfect setting to take your morning coffee while surrounded by our lush tropical foliage

The downstairs guest bedroom is appointed with a King Sized luxury bed ( not the typical rock hard bed found in most rentals ) and 500 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets guaranteeing a great nights sleep. Adjacent to the bedroom is a full bathroom stocked with thick, ultra soft towels and a hair dryer. Outside of the bedroom there is a private screened in lanai with a pair of comfortable rocking chairs. The upstairs master bedroom also features luxury King Sized bedding, 500 thread count sheets and a full bathroom with hair dryer included. Step through the french doors onto your private sun/moon deck with our custom made fish shaped lounge chairs. Picture yourself sitting outside the master bedroom at the end of a fun filled day toasting the moon and stars with a glass of wine. The loft outside the Master Bedroom is fitted with two high quality twin beds and a comfortable over-stuffed chair. This is the perfect place for the kids to sleep, close enough for parents to keep an eye on things but still allowing parents the privacy they need to fully enjoy the romantic setting of Captiva. Finally, we've recently added new living room and dining room furniture. The living room includes a queen sized sleeper sofa with a 3 inch memory foam mattress topper to make the sleeper as comfortable as a regular mattress.

On the ground floor, underneath our home you will find two custom made fish inspired bench swings that are delight for young and old to gently swing on. We also have a full size hammock, big enough for two which is an ideal spot to read one of the 100+ books that we provide for you in our library. Our ground floor storage room has everything needed to fully enjoy our world class private beach. There, we keep beach chairs, umbrellas, a very wide selection of every conceivable beach/sand toys, a cooler, beach floats, noodles and finally a cart with which to carry everything to the beach.

Just a two minute walk to our pristine, private beach, via our private boardwalk and only a 30 second walk to the heated swimming pool. Our home is located in the heart of Captiva village. Park your car upon arrival and stroll over to restaurants, shops, rentals and general store. So convenient!

From fine dining and nightlife, to spectacular sunsets and world renowned shelling, Captiva Island will deliver everything you need for a great vacation and more. Recently voted one of the top ten winter vacation destinations in the world! Whether you're looking for an activity filled vacation, or just want to lie on the beach enjoying the scenery, Captiva is an island paradise that you will always want to return to!

We have been vacationing in Captiva as a family for 25 years. Our 3 children who are now 26, 24 and 19 grew up on the beaches of Captiva during our yearly summer vacations. Even as adults they continue to come to our Captiva home although now they like to bring along the latest boyfriend or girlfriend. We are an active family so we love to fish, bike around the Island and body surf when the waves allow. We purchased this home not as a rental but as our family's second home and given that we live in Miami, we are blessed to be able to come to Captiva on an almost monthly basis

The Owner purchased this house in 2003

We have been vacationing there for 25 years and found it to be the perfect place for family vacations. Everything that you need for a relaxing and memorable vacation is there. Once you arrive and park your car in our private driveway, you will no longer need your car until the end of your stay. Literally everything that you need is within easy walking distance making your vacation in our home truly a vacation that you and you and your children will cherish.

Our Best Vacation in Years!!

  • Submitted: Oct 18, 2012

Dear Omar,
Your home was an absolute delight in every sense of the word. Our family hasn't had such a comfortable, relaxing vacation in years. You described your home and its amenities clearly to us in our emails and phone calls but if anything, I think you understated just how incredible your home and the area really is. We arrived on Saturday afternoon to a very clean and fresh smelling home and as we walked from room to room were impressed with the quality of the furniture and the beauty of the decorations. We spent a lot of time on the beautiful outdoor patios, the beach and spacious pool. Sunsets on the beach, accompanied by a good bottle of wine, were glorious. As you said, we didn't need to move the car all week. Everything that we needed was a short walk away including some great restaurants, The Green Flash and The Bubble Room. Thanks for all of the beach stuff that you provide including the toys for the children. The beds which are always a problem for me when I travel were as ( or more ) comfortable than my own. My only complaint is that our time there was too short, but plan to remedy that by reserving for two weeks next year. I'll be calling you soon to reserve our two weeks in " Paradise". Omar you've been an amazing host and we're so glad to have found your beach home. Thanks for everything!

Great Home, Great Food and Great Times.

Omar,

What a wonderful week we had here in Captiva - your home left us wanting for nothing. We were amazed with all of the beach equipment you had - the home was soooo comfortable! We felt completely at home. For future guests, my husband and I recommend eating at Metzaluna, the Island Cow and the Blue Giraffe... all Excellent restaurants.

We enjoyed all of your amazing balconies...loved the fish chairs outside of your beautiful master bedroom, the fish swings and the large hammock on the ground floor. You thoughtfully have provided "everything" for your guests to enjoy their best vacation ever.

Thanks so much for everything!

All of the Comforts of Home in Captiva

  • Submitted: Oct 15, 2012
  • Stayed: Sep 2012
Dear Omar,

We had a wonderful week at your home and on the Island. Our entire family enjoyed the comfort and location of your home. We have stayed on Sanibel Island several times, but this year on Captiva in your beautiful home has ruined us! We may never stay on Sanibel island again:). Thanks for providing us with all of the "comforts of home" including top of the line cooking utensils and the wide variety of spices.

It was a wonderful week for all of us.

The White Family

P.S. We loved all of the movies in your Library!

From the moment my Wife and I stepped in the front door of Omar's home we knew we were in for a great week. As we walked around we noticed the place was spotless, and there wasn't a thing that the owner forgot from all the utensils in the kitchen to the furnishing and wall deco right down to the beach towels in the laundry. Talking about the beach, under the house in the shed is everything you need, chairs, umbrellas, floats, and plenty of toys for the kids. We had a wonderful time on Captiva, the restaurants were excellent, the beach was beautiful,the pool in the complex was lovely, and the house was great. We wouldn't hesitate to go back again. Thanks Omar, Rae and Rich

Fabulous Time in our Captiva Home Away from Home

  • Submitted: Sep 4, 2012
  • Stayed: Jul 2012
Dear Omar,

As always, we had a fabulous time! We feel as though we are right at home in your place. Thank you for allowing us to have our friends join us. They loved it as well! And, we finally convinced Frank's dad to fly down and join us (after the first crew shipped out, of course). He was in heaven out on the screened porch and enjoyed walks to the village as well as swimming in the pool.
Sunset Captiva is the perfect location for us. We love having boat dockage and being so close to the village. George is awesome, always there to help and we enjoy early morning conversations with him at the pool.

Hopefully, we will be able to return next summer. Our oldest is a high school senior, so she will be preparing for college. Aah! We'll be in touch as soon as we know our plans.

Dear Omar

Thank you for letting our family enjoy your home for the last week. My sister and I LOVED the fish room! While we were here, we kayaked, parasailed and made a road trip to Orlando. We saw beautiful sunsets every day from your beautiful beach. When we parasailed, we saw a huge sea turtle and a Dolphin! We loved all of the different decorations around your home as well. This was our home away from home. So thanks again for opening up your lovely home to us!

Great family vacation in warm Captiva home!

  • Submitted: Aug 26, 2012
  • Stayed: Jun 2012
Dear Omar,

Thank you for opening your warm home to us. We really enjoyed our stay here and will hopefully be able to return. We enjoyed dinner at the Mucky Duck. My husband and son enjoyed shelling and we went out on a charter boat for fishing and brought back enough for dinner and some to take home! We enjoyed all of the wildlife. We saw Manatees, jumping fish, Dolphins and many birds. The sunsets were beautiful! We enjoyed watching them on many evenings. Your home is very child friendly! We have an eight year old and a 16 month old that enjoyed all of great beach toys that you provide. I enjoyed having my toes in the warm gulf waters for most of this trip. Thank you again.
