Florida House Rental Photos and Description

2BR+loft/2BA Home

Captiva Beachfront Home in the Heart of the Village.

Eighteen Urchin Court is a Sunset Captiva home, close to the beach, with 450 feet of private beach on the Gulf and private docks on the bay side.

Experience tropical island ambiance in our 2,000 sq. ft. home situated within a private gulf front community, which includes heated pool, tennis courts, and BBQ grills. Enjoy spectacular sunsets and great shelling. Behold the nesting and hatching of the protected Loggerhead turtles on the beach and observe the dolphins and endangered manatees along the shoreline. Our home is located in the village of Captiva. Just steps away you’ll find an array of restaurants, shopping, galleries, library, bike and boat rentals, charter fishing and exploration expeditions. Even attend worship services next door at the renowned Chapel by the Sea.

We have remodeled our home with new furniture and fixtures, new maple wood flooring and carpeting, appliances, linens, artwork, etc. The great room, which includes a vaulted ceiling, marble-hearthed fireplace, curved sofa and entertainment armoire, is open to the dining room appointed with a large glass topped pedestal table with seating for six. For convenience light meals can be taken at the adjacent snack bar. Eighteen feet of moveable window walls open to an 9’ x 30’ screened private lanai with seating for nine. The new modern kitchen is very open and offers ready access to the lanai. A tropical-themed bedroom with two twin beds and a sunny yellow full-bath complete the main floor. The upper level includes a newly-appointed master bedroom (king sized bed) with bath (whirlpool tub). The upper loft provides seating for cozy reading as well as sleeping for two in a queen-sized sleeper sofa.

The bedroom and loft access an upper level sun deck on which to sun bathe or view the celestial nighttime skies.

Fully equipped newer kitchen (refrigerator with ice maker, above range microwave, convection oven, dishwasher, dishes, bake ware, and utensils). Washer / dryer, all bed, bath linens, towels. Two cable TV’s, two VCR’s (one each in great room and master bedroom), and stereo with CD player. Covered parking is provided under this 'Olde Florida' styled home.

Out of respect for our guests, no pets or smoking are allowed.

By renting at Sunset Captiva, you will have access to the private community pool and tennis courts that are just steps away. While a guest in Sunset Captiva, you can enjoy the Pine Island Sound bayside wildlife amenities, as well, from the comfort of private docks. Manatees and dolphins are frequently sighted in the bay. Additionally, boat slips are available on site.

BR B Area: /B BR Within the village of Captiva you will find shopping, restaurants and a small general store. Kayaking, canoe rental, charter fishing and site-seeing excursions are available.

Sunset Captiva is a wonderful discovery as is this home. Perfect for two couples or small family. The furnishings were attractive and mature flora that surround all homes was beautiful except for the lost of the palm in front of this home that greeted you as you enter. Everything you need is mostly within one block radius including bike rental. Car rental is only necessary if you want to travel off the island. Grounds of Sunset Captiva are well maintained and the pool and tennis courts wonderful. The beach is large and readily available. No beaches chairs supplied by owner and would be a nice addition. When we arrived the front windows were dirty but American Realty which manages the home was prompt to come and brighten our outlook.

wonderful Captiva

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a great time here. The property is just as advertised and the surroundings and plants in the little community are beautiful. We joined others in walking a short few minuites to watch each sunset over the gulf, hoping to cath the 'green flash'. The beach is outstanding too!

We hope to return and can heartilly recommend this home and the area.
