Overview

Florida House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths

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!

About The Owner

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

Why The Owner chose Florida

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Omar. Your home was just what we needed,an oasis from the drabness of our NJ/DC/OH winters.The home was clean,well-stocked,and perfectly situated.When not at the beach or pool, the porch was one of our favorite places to be.We ate breakfast and lunch out there and just sat and talked.The proximity to so many restaurants and conveniences is such a plus; we were able to walk everywhere.We thoroughly enjoyed our week and wouldn't hesitate to come again or recommend your home to family and friends.

Great getaway

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in Omar's home for a week the end of May. This home was just as described; except for condiments in the kitchen and extra toilet paper in the bathrooms. We conveyed this and Omar he was very receptive. The home is a stones throw from the pool, tennis courts, grills and... beach. Restaurants are close, but the food was largely disappointing. We ate at the Key lime bistro twice, because they seemed to have the best options for families with small children. I wouldn't drink the water at the restaurants- there was an odor on at least 3 different occasions. Overall, this home was a winner! We'd definitely recommend.

Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful vacation at Captiva. The house was super comfortable and our home away from home. It was so easy for the kids (8, 11, 14) to go to and from the pool, tennis courts or beach by themselves. There were lots of kids for them to make friends with there. The beach was a relaxing place for the adults and water sports were only 50 yards away. We walked everywhere, which was so convenient. The kids picked a movie a night from the vast collection provided. The house is tucked away in trees so it feels very private. The porches were great and the beds were even better! Brought shells home to remember our amazing vacation and long to do it again.

Ideal and idyllic

  • 5 of 5

Great property, great location, great vacation for the five of us, aged 5 to 80. The house was well-maintained, clean, and perfectly situated close to the beach, other activities, pool, and the restaurants and shops on Andy Rosse Lane. Omar was a great host. A couple of minor things went wrong (stove, toilet) -- things that can and do in any home -- but Omar took care of them immediately. He could not have been faster in getting someone there to fix it. The house was roomy and furnished nicely. Good, reliable wi-fi. Close enough to the action with no noise problems. Wonderful and comfortable screened-in lanai (a necessity in Captiva). Omar gave us good advice about grocery shopping, restaurants, etc. I was scared off by some of the reviews of the local property management companies, and could not have been more pleased with Omar and Sunset Captiva 26.

Family Vacation in Captiva

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation was wonderful on so many levels. This home is perfectly located, adorned and decorated. We loved our time in the mornings enjoying the screened in porch watching what looked like a rain forest around us (with beautiful birds like cardinals, wood peckers and morning doves), the easy access to the beach, the restaurants and the final sermon of the season at The Chapel By The Sea. I could go on and on.

It was a relaxing vacation, just what my family deserved and we wish it wasn't.t over! We can't wait to return.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit to Captiva and this home is in a perfect location! It is close to town so you can walk to all the restaurants, and it's a short walk to the pool and beach. The house was very clean and had everything we needed for our stay. The owner is very accommodating and helpful! We were very happy with our stay!!

Great Holiday Week!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and two children stayed at this property for the week of Thanksgiving. This was our first time in Captiva. This was one of those vacations that my kids will never forget. The community was something out of the way I grew up, kids playing everywhere and within a few days the moms knew each other and the kids were all playing together and the moms knew where the kids live so you could just let them play safely. It's now like this is our world now.

The condo was great. Beautifully decorated out of a Homes and Living magazine. All the appliances were new and worked great. There was nothing you needed to go to the beach. A cart, a cooler, chairs, umbrellas you name it they had it.

This place is near restaurants the beach the villages, all within walking distance. The owner of the unit was phenemonal and checked in with us the first day and gave us some fabulous recommendations. It is obvious that they care about their home and want you to enjoy your stay! Would definitely go back!
