Captiva House Rental Photos and Description

3BR/3BA Oceanside Vacation Rental Pool House, Sleeps 8, Captiva, Florida USA

Our Sun & Moon House, a 3 br/3 bath Key West inspired home on popular Wightman Lane, is only a two to three minute walk down the sandy lane to the beach -- rated the most romantic for its calm, warm water, tropical atmosphere, and gorgeous sunsets. The restaurants in the village are just as close.

The decor is always kept updated and amenities reflect a finished, comfortable home, rather than a rental unit. The new kitchen is fully equipped for any entertaining needs. Dining choices include a dining room or the screened, furnished lanai by the newly re-finished swimming pool and paver stone covered deck, or even the furnished sun & moon deck on the top level.

The glass sided living room, with Italian leather super comfortable sleeper sofa and side chairs, offers a panoramic view of the swimming pool and the tropical foliage. The entertainment center has a 42' HDTV, DVD, and a Bluetooth connected 100 watt Onkyo stereo receiver, 6-disc CD changer and Infinity speakers inside and JBL poolside speakers. A large collection of CDs are provided. Wireless Internet and free long distance calling in the 48 states. Beach towels, chairs, umbrellas, ice coolers and handy beach cart make for an easy beach day.

- NOTE! We're heavily booked this season. If our calendar shows your date preference is already reserved, send us a request, and with a Florida Realtor's license, we'll respond with available Captiva homes we know and trust at no extra cost to you.

The master bedroom on the second floor has a king-size bed, its own full bath, and 32" HDTV. The "sun & moon" deck is accessible from this room as well as the hallway.

The second floor guest bedroom has two twin beds, HDTV/DVD, Receiver and CD player, and its own bath in the room. Children love this spacious and well decorated and equipped room. The twin beds can be placed together (with advance notice) and made up as a King size bed for a couple.

The first floor guest room, separated from the main living area for privacy, has a full bath, desk work space, and 32" wall mounted HDTV. It's perfect for another couple, the grandparents, or a nanny for the children.

Naturally, all linens are provided and you'll find everything in perfect, move-in condition. Beach towels, lounge chairs, and umbrellas are provided for the beach. Our pool lanai is totally furnished and a Weber gas grill is ready for a cookout.

Biking is wonderful on Captiva and Sanibel Island and our men's and ladies' aluminum 7-speed beach cruiser bicycles are provided for your exclusive use.

Even more information: Bikes for younger children or trailers for our bikes can be rented and delivered to your door. The best restaurants in Captiva's village are no more than a two to three minute walk away. Golfing on two 18-hole courses, The Dunes and Beachview, are just 20 minutes away on nearby Sanibel Island. Our Guest Guide, found in the living room, lists many of our personal recommendations to get your vacation started quickly.

This home is not managed by a management company, but by us, the owners. We personally supervise and assist our cleaning staff each Saturday. As the last to walk out the door prior to your arrival, we can assure you the Sun & Moon is one of the most immaculate and best prepared homes on Captiva, both inside and outside.

We personally own and maintain the Sun & Moon and our smaller house, the Mermaid. You are assured of a perfectly prepared house, both inside and out, as we're the last to leave the house before you arrive.

We do not do the on-line booking where you incur and extra fee. Please call us at 239.590.0707 to reserve. We understand fraud issues, and accordingly, accept major credit cards for your protection. A $500 advance payment per each week rented is due at time of reservation by major credit card. The balance is due 60 days prior to arrival by credit card. We collect only card number and exp date. No security code is ever collected to protect you further.

About Larry Hahn, Owner

We live in the area and personally maintain our two beach vacation rental homes, the Sun & Moon and the smaller 2 bedroom Mermaid House (perhaps the most popular rental house on Captiva), to provide maximum attention to detail. We don't leave the house for a management company as most owners do. We really think our homes are the two best prepared on the island, regardless of rental cost!

In addition to being part of the preparation team each Saturday, Larry is also a Licensed Florida Realtor.

A $500 per week rented advance payment is at time of reservation by major credit card. The balance is due 60 days prior to arrival by credit card. We collect only card number and exp date. No security code is collected to protect you further.

Larry Hahn, Owner purchased this house in 2002

Why Larry Hahn, Owner chose Florida

Captiva is a boutique type Island, often compared to Aruba without the wind, or Hawaii without the volcanos. Captiva is a tropical Carribbean style island and looks nothing like the rest of Florida. The Sun & Moon is centrally located in the village center on the beach side of the village. There are no streets to cross between our house and the beach.

What makes this house unique

For some it's the immaculate preparation of the house and pool, for others it's the style of furniture always kept fresh, perhaps the great audio system with i-Pod docking and poolside speakers, or perhaps the HD TV in the living room and LCD tv in each bedroom. Some just love the unique beach cart we assembled with special oversize balloon tires. It's easy to haul all our beach chairs, umbrella and ice cooler to the beach with this handy cart. Let's not forget the 7-speed aluminum bicycles we also provide. And our large top floor furnished sun & moon deck is always well used for a great tan or star gazing on a clear Captiva night..

Guestbook comments from the manager

We spend a week in Florida each January with 2 of our adult children and 2 grandchildren from Fairbanks, AK and this year chose Captiva. The Sun and Moon house was absolutely perfect for the 6 of us. First and foremost for our group, the Sun and Moon house is extremely clean, bug free and comfortably furnished.

The grandchildren and their parents had 2 very large bedrooms and adjoining baths on the second floor and we had a suite in the back of the first floor that could be closed off from the rest of the house. The privacy afforded by the floor plan works very well for extended families.

We may have stayed in more luxurious villas in Florida but never in a home so well equipped and well cared for. We didn't even need to replace paper products during our stay! The kitchen is very well appointed with quality dishware and cooking equipment.

It is obvious that Larry and Donna take great pride in the home and have put a lot of thought into providing for the comfort and convenience of their guests. Everything you need for the beach is provided and they have even reviewed local restaurants and have suggestions for shopping and activities in the area. From the home you are a short walk to the beach and many restaurants.

Our favorite feature was the heated pool in the large screened pool area that the grandkids could use even when it was too cool for the beach.

We loved the whole experience and will go back next year. Thanks, Larry and Donna! You can't go wrong with one of their properties or Captiva.

Owner's Response: As the owners, we personally take charge of preparing our Captiva houses each Saturday for our incoming guests. We're the last to close the door prior to your arrival, so we know quality control is high. You'll find everything perfectly clean and organized, both inside and poolside, all beds perfectly made, beach chairs, umbrella and beach cart ready, extra propane for the gas grill, and the house lights and music on for your arrival. This is why we know the good reviews will continue. Larry & Donna

Loved the Sun and Ammon house!

  • 5 of 5

We just got home from our first visit to Captiva Island. We had our two sons, daughter-in-law and two grandkids, 4 year old and 3 month old. The house was perfect, with a large master bedroom and bathroom, and two other nice sized bedrooms with bathrooms. It was a 4 minute walk to the beach down the sandy lane, made easy with the beach cart!! Everything you need is here; chairs , umbrellas beach toys and coolers. After the beach you can relax at the pool, sit on covered patio with ceiling fan and its screened in so no bugs! The owner is terrific and it was a wonderful experience!

Owner's Response: As the owner and manager, I truly appreciate our guests posting reviews. We work hard to ensure we get top reviews by being there every Saturday to make the house as prepared as possible, both inside and out. Likely, we may be the only owners on Captiva to take this weekly responsibility, providing a level of attention to detail a rental management company can't possibly do.

We spent a week in the Sun and Moon house for the second time; first time was wonderful, second time even better. We are a family of 6 , with 3 kids.

First, the location is a wonder: Captiva is a dream island , the whole family fell in love with it; the house is ideally located a few minutes walk to the main shops and lots of great restaurants. More important, you are 3 minutes walk to the prettiest beach you can imagine.

Second, the house itself is absolutely beautiful : the decoration is lovely, as you can see in the pictures; the house is spotless on arrival; the bedrooms are large and comfortable, 3 nice bathrooms, the kitchen fully equipped with good quality material, the pool is warm and clean

The little cart to go to the beach goes with plenty of beach chairs, umbrellas , toys, ... nothing you can dream of is missing to make your days at the beach a pure pleasure

Larry really makes everything to make your stay perfect: he is personally there at check in to make sure everything is ok, and if any problem occurs, it is fixed within hours.

we will come back if we have the opportunity , and will definitely recommend the house to any friend

Great house, fully stocked, great layout

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed on Captiva many times and this was one of our favorite houses. The house looks brand new and is well maintained. It is stocked with everything you would need including beach chairs, umbrellas and even three sizes of coolers, as well as flat screen tv's, cd's to listen to, DVD's to watch and books to read. You don't need to bring a thing. The pool (sparkling clean!) and patio are screened which is very important in the summer months when the mosquitoes and no-see-ums come out. The outdoor grill was in great shape. Would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: It's great to have guests take the time for reviewing my home after a visit. This helps future guests with their choice of a vacation home, and helps direct me to do even more of what is already done well! Reviews like this are a good part of why my two Captiva homes, the Sun & Moon and my smaller Mermaid Home rent virtually every week of every year.

Car: recommended

Southwest Florida is the surrounding area serviced by Ft Myers' Southwest Regional International Airport (RSW). One of the 'Crown Jewels' of this area is Captiva Island, just a 35 mile, very pleasant drive from RSW. Captiva Island is described by some as Hawaii without volcanos, or Aruba without the wind. However you relate to it, it's not like a typical idea of Florida. We locals just think of it as a laid back, Carribean style tropical island on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico.
