Guestbook comments from the owner

This is one of the best houses in Sunset Captiva. The owner is top notch: Chooch made us feel right at home. The house sleeps 6, we cooked gourmet meals, the herb garden was superb and we felt right at home. There was nothing better then walking a few hundred yards from the beach to the house to go make lunch. There is access to a pool and tennis court just foot steps away from the front steps. There is an outdoor shower which made cleaning up after a long day at the beach both easy and refreshing, especially for those with young children.

We will be returning yearly until further notice.

Truly magical!

  • 5 of 5

We loved ruth's beautiful home and are already making plans to come next year. The house is all you can ask for - tasteful, comfortable, clean and walking distance to beach, activities and restaurants. The bunnies around the property are icing on top of an already magical experience.

Another excellent vacation.

  • 5 of 5

As always, Ruth was so easy to work with, and we had yet another great week at Captiva. This is our third year renting this house, and we keep coming back for several reasons; First, we live about 45 minutes away, but when we get there, it's like we are on vacation. When you live in Florida, you work and do not get much beaching time. It's easy for us also because if there is an emergency at work, which there always is for my husband, he can go quickly, and come back quickly. Second, the house is always clean and well appointed, and Ruth is so very easy to work with and so kind. This year we got a special surprise and a kitchen renovation had been done. It is absolutely beautiful and so nice to have. Third, it is close to everything. We never even drive our car when we are there. All restaurants are walking distance, the beach and pool are very close, and the marina is about 3 minutes away. Boat slip is great and all the guys at Jensens marina are very nice and helpful. We fish everyday, and they can tell you where to go, what bait to use, etc. We always come back with lots of great memories and many new shells to add to our collection. Great time and great family time. If you are looking for a very relaxing vacation without alot of "costly things to do" and are not in need of nightlife, this is paradise. Thanks again Ruth for having us, and until next year, be well.

Absolutely Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! We just returned and we already can't wait for our return. Upon our arrival, the owner, Ruth, couldn't have made us feel any more welcomed! She was so hospitable and friendly as she told us all about her fabulous house. The house is beautiful, extremely clean, and very well maintained. Also, if you love to cook, she has everything in her kitchen that you could possibly need! The rooms are decorated beautifully and plush with very comfortable beds. You won't need to bring a thing: chairs, beach towels, umbrellas, coolers, beach wagon to tote everything in, etc! Also, the home has a great layout! The house is steps from the beach and also a short walk to the pool. The island itself is breathtaking and anywhere you want to go is walking distance. Or, you can also rent a golf cart to ride around in. There is a place on the island that you can rent from and it is reasonably priced. If you plan on doing that, be sure to reserve a cart before you depart because they go fast. We will definitely be returning! Thank you Ruth for renting out your beautiful beach home to us! We had the BEST time! xo -Jennifer

Idyllic island getaway

  • 5 of 5

After vacationing on Sanibel Island for 30+ years, we ventured to Captiva in February of 2015. After 2 weeks in this house, we rebooked the same 2 weeks for 2016, and have already requested 2 weeks in 2017. This beautifully appointed beach house has everything you could want in comfort, cooking equipment and convenience. It's just a few steps to the beach, pool and tennis courts - but also just a few minutes walk to restaurants, coffee, ice cream, boating/ fishing excursions, fresh local seafood, adventure trips. It's all here - or you can just read on the deck, enjoy the sunsets and the quiet of a long beach walk. We love it when it's just the 2 of us, and when our kids and grandkids join us too. The property owner could not be more helpful.All that, and it's a bargain relative to many other rentals in the area. We are already looking forward to next February!

The location, the house, the amenities, everything was just perfect! The house has everything you need beach-wise and meal-wise. It's at the end of captiva and you have at least 5 restaurants, 2 general stores, and a Starbucks all within walking distance. Once we were there we never had to leave. The community pool was nice and warm the beach was great (not too crowded, good shells, and dolphins came by). We even saw manatees on the other side of the community. We will definitely be going back!!!

I have been to the islands over 20 times and will only stay here going forward 😄

Enjoyable Stay

  • 5 of 5

Over the past 5 years we've vacationed a couple of times a year, at homes from Maine to Florida. This home was the nicest and absolutely the best bargain for the price. All the appliances work very well. Everything you need is there. Plenty of dishes, utensils, pots, pans, and glassware. All the linen and towels you could possibly use.

The weather was very nice. Outside of driving across Blind Pass bridge to go to Sanibel, we never left the island the entire week. Even had a morning paper at the foot of the stairs.
