The upper level includes a newly-appointed master bedroom (king sized bed) with bath (whirlpool tub).

We expected better .

  • 3 of 5

This could be a great place with a little more care given to it. We just kept thinking how great it would be" if." First of all ,it needs a good thorough cleaning. I took photos of the nasty , mildew covered shower curtain to send to the owner. The sofas in the living room are beat and not real clean; I put down our own beach towels before we would sit on them. The windows were dirty and the old and mismatched, torn bedding in the closets left me squirming. We had to call management to ask for washcloths which they promptly delivered. The linoleum in the downstairs bath was coming up; should be tiled. None of the clocks were working; just needed batteries. It was a shame as this could be a real nice spot. the best part was the back screened porch but wish we could see the water. Do you think the owner might be interested in selling?

Owner's Response: This is a bizarre and deceitful review. The washcloths were supplied promptly by the management company as acknowledged. However, the management company also promptly addressed their other concerns as well, including replacing the offending shower curtain and charging the owner for those services. Several other comments are incorrect or deceitful per the owner who was personally present immediately prior to this guest’s arrival. The owner agrees that the batteries for the wall clock should have been replaced but in many years has never heard any such complaint. The management company would have replaced them if requested to do so. The owner believes the guest was attempting to use this review as “blackmail.” The guest that followed this guest the next week wrote to the owner that the home was “wonderful,” “perfect,” “lovely,” and was very thankful. P.S.: The owner has replaced the two couches with two new leather ones and arranged for new carpeting as well as bathroom marble. These have been planned for some time.

Perfect location on Captiva

  • 4 of 5

This was a great spot on the island in the heart of the village, offering access to both the gulf (3-minute walk) and the bay. Overall, the home was very comfortable - a beautiful, well-appointed kitchen, but some of the furniture and bedding seemed a little tired. My husband and I own a couple of rental properties and I always like to know about renter experiences so, to the owner, I'll say you might have a word with your property manager about being a bit more diligent - the king bed had only one pillow with a pillow case. The other pillow was covered with just a protector with a broken zipper. And I pulled a nose strip off one of the pillows - we don't use them so I know it wasn't ours. Walls and outdoor furniture could use a good cleaning.

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.
