Overview

About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 baths, sleeps eight

It's always 'Millertime' at our relaxing home on beautiful Captiva Island situated on a secluded lot with your own private pool. Miles of white sand beaches on the Gulf are just a two doors away. This home is also located in the heart of Captiva's charming Village area with its quaint shops, galleries and fine dining. This is truly a place to come and get away from it all. Bring your laptop...we have wireless high speed Internet Access.

The interior has been upgraded with all new carpet, tile, paint and furniture that gives the home a decidedly 'island' look.

The living room with cathedral ceiling has a sleeper sofa and new entertainment center with 36' cable TV, VCR/DVD and stereo. Two sets of double sliding glass doors lead to a large screened lanai adjacent to the pool. The lanai has plenty of seating and a set of table and chairs for additional dining space. The heated pool is in a large screened area and is very private with tropical vegetation surrounding it.

The large master bed with king size bed is equipped with cable TV/VCR, a private bath and sliding doors that lead to a patio area.

The second bedroom has a queen size bed, cable TV/VCR and sliding glass doors overlooking the pool.

The third bedroom has two twin beds, plenty of closet space and cable TV/VCR.

Update: March, 2015 We just provided all new 100% cotton sheets, Turkish towels and beach towels. All of these will be laundered and sanitized each week by a professional laundry service.

A modern, fully equipped kitchen and dining area is open to the living room and has everything needed to prepare snacks to complete meals, including refrigerator, stove, microwave and dishwasher. A gas grill located on the porch deck is available for grilling steaks or your own catch of fish from the Gulf.

Your vacation home and pool area are surrounded by colorful tropical Palm trees, flowering shrubs and even a Key Lime tree. The Gulf beach with some of the best shelling in the world and spectacular sunsets is a two minute walk to the West.

A short walk to the East will bring you to a marina on the bay side of the island where you can rent a boat or just watch the manatees lounging around the docks.

Boat and jet ski rentals are available at the beach as is parasailing. Two 18 hole golf courses, The Dunes and Beachview are 20 minutes away on Sanibel Island. The Captiva Library is right next door and has books, CDs, videos and computers available to guests.

What we like about Captiva is what you wont find there, like high rise condos/hotels, fast-food restaurants and busy shopping centers. It's just an unspoiled tropical island where you can relax and get away from it all.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"This home is so wonderful we just got back from a week and wished we had booked two! The pictures do not do it justice. The location is absolutely perfect, beach was a minute away and the Mucky Duck a short walk (maybe 5 minutes tops) on the beach, same to downtown. We have two toddlers and the home was set up really great for them and pool has a very secure gate that allowed us to let them play on the lanai without us worring they would get into the pool area! The house itself is beautifully decorated and the layout is so spacious it really lends itself to relaxing dinners or cocktails with a few friends - with plenty of space for the kids to keep them occupied but within earshot. We very highly recommend "Millertime" for a great vacation spot! The Power Family"

Terrific rental in every way

  • 5 of 5

MillerTime is a delight. Immaculately maintained. Beautifully decorated. Well equipped. Great location (near everything Captiva restaurants, shops, and especially the beach). Pool and porch area outstanding. Accommodating owners. Simply a great value. We are experienced renters of vacation homes and our family (six adults) all loved it. -- Paul and Margaret Taylor, Hingham, MA.

A Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot possibly express in words how perfect this vacation was, and specifically how perfect this particular house was.

The house was the perfect size and all of the beds and the furniture were very comfortable. The living space felt bright and open and very homey. The Lanai was a huge area with a large table and a very cozy sitting area. Two overhead fans ensured that we could get a breeze going out there whenever we wanted, and we spent a large amount of our relaxing time in that area. The heated pool was a big hit with the kids- large enough for our whole group to get in together and swim/splash/play. There was also plenty of space around the pool to watch the kids swimming while enjoying a good book.

The house is situated perfectly on the island- and different members of our group commented on how happy they were to be in this specific location on the island. We were in a very calm little grouping of streets so that the kids could safely walk/bike around. The library was right on the street and had a beautiful children's area with a craft table, a computer with games just for kids, and an assortment of pop up books and huge picture books, and every Dr. Seuss book that I could think of. A little trail next to the library parking lot led to a beautiful beach that was never very crowded during our stay. The walk to the beach took no more than two minutes. A 'main' street that ran up through the whole island had a little bike/pedestrian shoulder allowing us to walk or bike up a couple blocks to another street with shops, restaurants, and YOLO rentals. (it was also a quick walk via the beach). RCOtters had a particularly delightful breakfast with outdoor seating, and Keylime Bistro made a delicious afternoon frozen cocktail that could be enjoyed outdoors while listening to live music.

I was expecting to find some beautiful shells, but I could never have imagined just how many beautiful shells we would find. I made an early expedition down the beach one day as the sun came up and would recommend that experience to any sheller.

We could easily have enjoyed a second week with everything there is to see and do in this area! And if we are ever lucky enough to be able to return we will definitely be staying at Millertime once more!!

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

We rented through Kingfisher and everything went smoothly as they said it would. The house was perfect for our family 6. It is a well designed and furnished ranch style house that is very comfortable. The screened pool receives full sun most of the day and was a big hit with our kids. There is a new weber gas grill which is just outside of the pool. Also a outdoor shower to wash off the sand and the house is beautifully landscaped so you do not notice any neigbors. We used the washer and dryer everyday as well as the dishwasher. It is located perfectly located 2 minutes from the beach, 4 minutes to Jenssen's Marina and 5 minutes to the downtown area. The location could not be any better and it is a very quiet street. We had a great time at Millertime! The only v slight negative is that the master bath is small with a stand up shower and curtain. The other bath was bigger and had a tub. We hope to go back and we hope Millertime is available.

The property is really in a wonderful location, close to the beach, with a pool.

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I had a very relaxing time during our week at Miller Time. The home is clean, well-maintained and in a safe area. The private pool is great. I would recommend this location to anyone who wants a restful, quiet place for a vacation. I would also like to recognize Marcie from Kingfisher who met us upon arrival and was extremely helpful in checking on things and answering our questions. We would like to stay there again next year.

Map

Car: recommended

Captiva Island, located North of its sister island Sanibel and across the causeway bridge from Ft. Meyers, has an international reputation as a year around vacation destination. For 365 days a year vacationers can enjoy swimming and sunbathing at the Gulf beach just two doors away, or in our pool, heated to a comfortable 85 degrees. Both islands are world famous sanctuary islands, noted for their abundance of seashells, miles of natural undisturbed beaches, fascinating bird life and beautiful subtropical foliage. Add the intrigue of pirate legends, conquistadors, a unique Carribean atmosphere, and a secret getaway for celebrities and you can see why Captiva Island is a world class vacation destination. Best of all Millertime Villa is located in the heart of Captiva Village, close to everything fun!

Golf: Sunsets are spectacular!
