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. And please note, we're on Captiva Island where you can drive to, unlike North Captiva - a totally separate destination - where no cars are permitted.
We accept only Saturday to Saturday reservations, as is the standard on Captiva Island. We accept reservations no further than a year in advance, as current guests have first option to reserve the same week the following year. If the guests do not re-book by 10am of their departure day, a new reservation request will be accepted.
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 Comcast 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.
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.
Even more information: Bikes for adults or children 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 also personally own and maintain the our smaller Mermaid House, a classic Captiva cottage style home. You are assured of a perfectly prepared house, both inside and out, as we're the last to leave the house before you arrive.

About Larry Hahn, Owner
We live in the area and personally maintain our two very popular 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 and Debbie are also Licensed Florida Realtors.
Larry Hahn, Owner purchased this House in 2002
Why Larry Hahn, Owner chose Captiva
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 BlueTooth audio system with inside and poolside speakers, or perhaps the HD TV in the living room and LCD TVs 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. 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..

Captiva Sun & Moon Review
On behalf of my family and myself, I want to thank you for having such paradise available to us. This week was one of the most amazing weeks we have had as a family, we will always remember your house as something amazing and a blessing to all of us. Your Sun & Moon House is not only cozy and warm, but beautiful and totally equipped!! Captiva Island is a true paradise and I want to let you know that your house exceeded our expectations by a million!!
Thank you so much,
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.

Really fun house!!
Loved the house and location! Captiva is great; perfect for our family reunion.
Would have given 5 stars but the air conditioning problem was a pain.
We had an A/C compressor leak during their stay. I sourced another available, appropriate home and offered to move them at my expense. But they were troopers and declined the move offer. Fortunately, we got a loaner compressor installed within 2 days.
Unforeseen problems happen, and I'm so sorry the entire family was inconvenienced. I'm so thankful they gave me at least 4 stars (after many years of all 5 star reviews) after this stay. We can assure future guests that the A/C problem is totally resolved as an entirely new system was installed 2 days after their departure.
Great location. Walking distance to beach and private pool.
Really nice house. Quiet street and easy walking distance to the beach. We loved the private pool. The owner took great care of us, and the house was equipped with everything we needed.
Perfect family spot!
Our family totally enjoyed our stay on Captiva at Larry's Sun and Moon property. It is conveniently located so that once we parked our cars we walked everywhere we needed to go. The house was amazing....just as pictured. Very nicely appointed...everything you need. We strolled to the beach several times a day(with all the beach gear in our handy cart) Don't miss sunset! Walk the other direction to McCarthy's and see morning sunrise(and take one of the excursions from McCarthy's ...class operation) Starbucks short walk....Doc Ford's amazing...Cantina on corner fun...did I mention the BubbleRoom?(three times there for dessert). Island Store within steps has anything you need. The kids loved the pool at night after a day at the beach. We ate all our meals on covered patio by pool.
This island has such a pleasant family atmosphere.
Larry your place is amazing! 5 stars plus. And you were so accessible and helpful . Would recommend this house to anyone!
The Sun and Moon has everything!!! House is perfect, immaculate and very very cozy. The previous reviews are spot on and it is really like being home and this is my first time renting a home away and I loved it!!! Larry the owner has it perfected. Nothing missing. And that is why this home is fully booked. And if you want the perfect Thanksgiving….book now, we had that this past Thanksgiving…. it was the best!!! Love love Captiva!!!
Very comfortable home with all of the amenities.
We had a great week at Sun & Moon. Everything we needed was there and the house and pool were better than we expected.
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.
