Nice but needs updating

  • 3 of 5

I stayed here for a week with six other family members. The house is spacious and has some nice amenities. The pool was fantastic, the kitchen large, the front porch nice for morning coffee and late night drinks. It stayed nice and cool inside the house. It was generally clean, but overall it has seen better days. There were a few things that needed help, like the ping-pong table, the saggiest, dirtiest ping pong table I've ever seen (which we still used a lot). On the first night the grill didn't work, but they brought a new one over the next day. The internet also went out for a day, but later came back on. The spare bedroom upstairs has no closet or place to hang clothes at all, and the closet across the hall is taken up by the water heater. That bedroom does, however, have a mini fridge. Why? A bathroom would have been far better. I spent the entire trip sneaking into the room across the hall or going downstairs to the bathroom. The house had the cheapest coffee maker I've ever seen. The vacuum was ancient and broken, the broom was from the Middle Ages and the dust pan was the size of my palm, which made tidying up after dinner and the beach rather difficult. You cannot see the bay in any way, though it is near enough that you do see Osprey flying around a lot. The location is fantastic in general, a really short walk to the store and main strip, which were not at all loud, as I feared they would be. Close walk to the beach. The elevator would be a huge plus if you need that amenity. Overall it was a fine place to stay, and the rental company was responsive, but it was not exactly luxurious. We've been coming to Captiva for decades, and this home was about average compared with other ones we've had there.

Owner's Response: I did not rent to this person so I had no interaction with them. The home does indeed have beautiful views of the bay as shown in the photos, and it has a standard Mr Coffee coffee maker. Sorry if the broom was old but I will be sure to bring by a new one. The grill did break which we had replaced immediately. However the internet never went down they just shut the switch off to it. The home has had many numerous upgrades over the past year or 2 including complete repainting and is in very good condition

What a FANTASTIC property!! Everything was perfect! This was our 8th Captiva vacation, and definitely one of our best!! We flew into Ft. Meyers, and rented a car from there. However, this home is so conveniently located, we really didn't need it. We only used it once (a rainy day) the entire week. When we returned it to the airport, it only cost us $8 to refill the tank :) The grill, pool, ping-pong table, etc. all got a good workout while we were there. Our daughter and I even went parasailing (an adventure that we will never forget). For the very first time, we really hated to leave. We have every intention of staying at this lovely home again.

Wonderful home, can't wait to return!

  • 5 of 5

I just got back from a wonderful stay at Bay Jah View and in all my years of going to Captiva I think this was my favorite rental home.

It is so perfectly laid out and the location is absolutely perfect! The owner said everything was right within walking distance and he wasn't kidding. The shops, the restaurants, the beaches, all right there! I loved the heated pool and spa. It was such a wonderful relaxing time I wish I was there now sitting on the deck sipping a cocktail and looking out at the water. I miss you Bay Jah View!
