|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
Welcome to the most peaceful place on earth - Captiva Island. We have tried to make our home as user-friendly as the lifestyle on Captiva. You can kick back and enjoy without thinking about life and work 'back home.'
We hope you select our rental for your next vacation - we've gone to great lengths to ensure a worry-free visit in every way we could envision.
If you invest your valuable vacation time and hard-earned money here, we believe you will get the best possible return on that investment. In fact, if you contact us, we will happily give you the names of several people who have stayed in our Captiva home. You are free to contact them to learn what they thought of the area or (if you're already familiar with Captiva) about our home there.
Thank you for viewing our property online and if you have ANY questions at all please contact us via e-mail or phone.

We are both in residential real estate in the burbs of St Louis MO. We love 'beaching it' and Captiva has a fabulous beach. We're morning people, so we were married on the beach at the Lighthouse in Sanibel but many couples marry at sunset on Captiva beach. Only get to be there 3 or 4 times a year, but it's heaven for us.

We've always been beach-loving people and Captiva just blew us away with its low key, sophisticated lifestyle. It is a fabulous family vacation spot, especially in Sunset Captiva. And you never know whom you might see at the Key Lime Bistro, Mucky Duck, Bubble Room or Island Store...celebrities are tucked away in their private enclaves, but they do emerge at times.
Our vacation home is so easy to enjoy. It is equipped and accessorized so completely that guests have stated that they are utterly amazed by the completeness of it. (We even have a salad spinner!) We're only a 3-minute stroll to the pool and the boardwalk to the beach is right there. We do not offer a beach-front experience, but we have tried to offer much more than you'll find at most other vacation homes.
We love the house. This was our second year renting it. It is very well appointed with chairs, beach towels, etc. We especially love the rooftop deck and the screened porch. Our only complaint is the twin beds in the 2nd bedroom. They are extremely uncomfortable. We have 2 couples every year so someone gets stuck with the twin beds and the futon is unusable. My only other complaint is that the outside stairs are in very bad condition. We always have a good time so these are minor points. I would recommend the house.
We had the pleasure of recently spending a fantastic week in paradise at this terrific home. My wife and I have two young daughters (ages 3 & 5). The home is part of a terrific beachfront community, the amenities (pool is fantastic, along with tennis courts, etc.) were expansive. Centrally located, we did not have to get in the car once during the week. An array of restaurants are less than a blocks walk away - and the convenience of the island store is right around the corner. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need to cook for a family, and the home is immaculate. Additionally, we were pleasantly surprised by the access to beach supplies (chairs, umbrellas, toys, etc) - which was a big plus with our young kids, and comfort on the beach. Great stock of movies for all tastes. We plan to make this home an annual destination - Captiva is a very special, beautiful place. Quiet, beautiful, and relaxing - everything a beach destination should be!
We just got back from a wonderful week on Captiva in this great home. This is in a great community that is perfect for walking to dinner and getting ice cream for the kids every night before walking to the beach to watch the sunset every night.... absolute paradise. Thank you for your hospitality. We look forward to coming back again.

We have stayed in several homes in Sunset Captiva over the last 20 years but this experience was our favorite to date. The owners have given great thought to every detail to make your vacation relaxing and comfortable. What is described in the rental information is all they say and more. All in all, a "captivating" experience!
My family loved staying in this condo! Sunset Captiva is a beautiful area with easy access to the beach and pool. My 2 year old walked and I carried my 9 month old on my hip within Sunset Captiva. The condo is stocked with everything you could possibly think of. It is very refreshing to stay in a place and everything listed on the website is true and available. The condo was very clean which is very important to us with two little ones.
The one block walk to dinner was great. My 2 year old even made the trek rather than riding in the stroller.
Jensen's marina is directly behind the condo unit and a great place to see manatee.
This was a great location and we would love to stay again. I hope everyone enjoys it like we did.
