Great Location - 2 minute walk to quiet area of beach, also 2 minute walk to the restaurants. Some days didn't need to use the car.

Great Views of the bay from screened porch and main living area.

Very Clean.

Pool and Hot Tub as advertised.

Caught a lot of nice trout under the lights after dark off the dock.

Osprey eating fish in tree every morning.

Major Appliances are new and higher end.

WiFi worked great.

AC worked great.

The only improvement really needed would be an upgrade on the TV's. (maybe a Netflix account for the house).

Captiva is the best island in Florida.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Stayed at this home for one week and have to say that the location is great. You are close to everything and the pool is wonderful. We used it everyday. The kitchen is well stocked and the house is like the pictures. The lanai was great. When we first arrived we had some questions and the management company was wonderful and responded quickly. We had our 91 yr old father and the elevator was an added bonus. There were a few cons but I would not call them deal breakers just an fyi. We knew the den had a murphy bed, which was comfortable, but just be aware that this is directly off the living room with french doors with windows so there is really no privacy for that room. We did not use the pull out bed so cannot comment on that. The master bedroom is on the second floor with the his and hers bathrooms so there is only one bathroom on the main floor. We also felt that the TVs could be updated as they were all on the smaller side. Beds were not the most comfortable but they aren't the worst I have slept on. As stated the linens were of high quality along with all the appliances. Thank you for sharing your home.

When my family and I arrived at Bay Haven, we were absolutely ecstatic!!! This house is ultra-elegant with stunning views of Pine Island Sound. The house has a private boat dock and swimming pool. It is also the perfect location for beach lovers! Bay Haven exceeded our expectations and is absolutely Captiva’s best kept secret!!!

This house is just gorgeous with everything to offer!!! It is very well maintained, very clean and up to date! The furnishings were lovely; appliances new; the beds were so comfortable; loved the faux painting, large living room with adjoining lanai overlooking Pine Island Sound. We enjoyed our morning coffee out there and seemly daily boat parade.

My husband and sons love going to Captiva to fish. They were catching fish off the boat dock in the backyard while a manatee and her baby swam around and under the dock. We had our own miniature SeaWorld!

We enjoyed the private pool and the beach was conveniently located across the street. The shelling was fabulous and the sunsets were spectacular. It seemed everyone gathered on the beach every evening with their glass of wine or champagne to take in the amazing sunsets.

There was so much to do at the beach! Parasailing boats and sea doo rentals were ankered and available for rental. We rented a boat from one of the marinas during the week and did cruised around the islands and went to Cabbage Key for lunch. We also rented a golf cart for $260.00 and ventured around the island.

My searching for our slice of paradise and have found it at Bay haven! We can’t imagine staying anywhere else! We are already rebooked for next year! The owner called when we arrived and was very helpful and attentive to our needs!

I have to mention, we booked Bay Haven before a few negative reviews were posted to the site and were a little skeptical about our reservation. Well after arriving we were so delighted to find these reviews to be totally unfounded! This was one of the best vacations to date! I would highly recommend this property to anyone!

Great Location - Home Could Use Some Updating

  • 3 of 5

First of all - the location of this home is excellent. You are within walking distance of virtually anything you could need to enjoy your stay.

With regard to the home itself, it could use a good "freshening up." The home would benefit from a deep clean and also opportunity to fix the little things that need attention such as missing base boards, doors that stick, etc. With that type of attention, I would call it a luxury home.

Owner's Response: The owner agrees that the home is in an excellent location in the center of the village of Captiva and that it is a luxury home. The owner thanks the excellent cleaning crew for responding promptly to any concerns expressed by this guest. The baseboard issue relates to two one foot sections of baseboard in a corner which were damaged by a contractor. Because the baseboards were custom milled, it was necessary to have the profile duplicated by an out of state mill work. That has been accomplished and the replacements are on site awaiting a suitable time for a carpenter to install them without disturbing guests. This issue is not a reflection on the home but rather the circumstances.

Relaxing Vacation in Great Location.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this well-maintained house! It's in the perfect location, beach and shopping nearby. There are gorgeous sunsets every night which we watched comfortably from the deck. It really was a wonderful place to stay and it was evident that the owners take pride in keeping the property in great shape. We hope to come back in the near future!

Bay Haven takes advantage of its ideal location overlooking beautiful Pine Island Sound, 'The Bay.' Enjoy bay views throughout the den and great room and even from the kitchen. The waters are frequented by dolphins and manatees, which you can watch from the dock or even from the house. Exotic marine birds thrive here and seem almost tame as they share the habitat with humans.

Other Activities: health/beauty spa, parasailing, kayaking
