Florida House Rental Photos and Description

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.

BR B Amenities: /B BR Other amenities include private heated pool, beach chairs, central air conditioning, ceiling fans throughout, and laundry area with washer and dryer. Wireless High Speed Internet Access provided at no charge.

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"

Fantastic Family Holiday at' Millertime' Captiva

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our family holiday and was just as advertised on the Owners website.Everything very clean and well maintained . Fabulous location - a 2 minute walk to the beach , where we spotted Dolphins; Pelicans; Herons and Osprey daily . A 4minute walk in the other direction led to the wharf with good fishing trips and plenty of Manatee alsovery close to to the charming Chapel by the sea where we attended a magical Carol service . Local shops and restaurants a few minutes walk away . Dan the owner was extremely helpful prior to our arrival and accomodated all of the requests that we made. The layout of the house was great and ideal for our 4year old grandson who has physical disabilities - many thanks to Dan for arranging the pool to be so warm - Jack loved it ! .Would definitely recommend the property to a friend.

7 days in Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Where do I start? From the minute my family and I walked in we knew this vacation was going down for the books. Everything about it seemed perfect. Some things just seem too perfect to be true but, I honestly could not find anything to complain about. Even now thinking back, nothing. The place was clean, the linens smelled fresh, the fridge and freezer were cold and ready to be stocked, the place was cool, pool was clean, the floors were swept. These things are important to me. The beach is about a 3-5 minute walk from the house, if that. The beach is Heaven, it felt like we had it all to ourselves. I have two kids under 5 and it felt great being able to let them run around and have them do their own thing. The waters are so calm to the point my 2 1/2 year old son sat on the beach and had no trouble with the waves (with his floatie of course) The sand is soft and parts full of shells, which made it fun for the kids. Back to the house- Millertime has pretty much everything you need to hang out at the beach, the only thing they didn't have were umbrellas, which we rented for $35 for 5 days, no biggie. The place we rented from is at the end of the street. The little town of Captiva is so laid back and it feels as it you're in the caribbean somewhere. Everyone is so nice and respectful. We ate at a few spots, Mucky Duck, Bubble Room, Key Lime Bistro, and RC Otters although pretty pricey, it was worth it to us. For the most part we bought groceries and ate at home. The crab cakes at the Fresh Seafood place by the general store were to die for!!! Seriously, Millertime was so amazing from the gate to the pool to the outside shower- everything was so convenient. We loved and are hoping to come back next year!!

Owner's Response: Thanks to this guest for taking the time to post this great review. We take pride in providing the perfect place for a dream Captiva Island vacation. To us, attention to the little things are critical, like having fresh sanitized linens, soft Turkish towels and a spotlessly clean house. We always ensure that everything is in good working order and have a maintenance service readily available if needed. If we do these things right, the Gulf of Mexico and our beautiful natural Captiva Island will do the rest! Dan & Sue

Great House for the Family

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed Miller Time for the second year this April. It is a great location in Captiva and very comfortable and clean accommodations. Dan Miller and Kingfisher Vacations are excellent hosts and we look forward to returning in the future.

We had a wonderful three generation stay.

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a week in Millertime with our son, daughter-in-law and their children ages one and five. We made great use of the excellent facilities, swimming in the pool virtually every day and barbecuing, and eating in the lanai. We appreciated the proximity to the beach and spent several hours each day there as well. The one-floor lay-out is practica andl very comfortable at the same time. We feel that owners have done everything possible to create a wonderful vacation home and we wouldn't hesitate to stay there again on our next trip to Captiva.

Great outdoors spaces for swimming, eating, private and quiet. Adequate space for our family, nice kitchen-well-supplied...our disappointments were the master suite bathroom which was very small and dark, and no Hi-def TV/minimal cable channels for rainy days and those who don't "do" sun.

Owner's Response: We appreciate the issues raised by this guest and are addressing them. We have already corrected the TV issue by having our cable provider upgrade the programming/HD service. The lighting in the master bath will also be addressed this month. Unfortunately we cannot readily increase the size of the master bath but we do have long range plans that include a new much larger master bath addition. In the meantime the current master bath, like the rest of the home, is well maintained, functional and always immaculate. We have owned Millertime Villa for 11 years as a vacation rental home and have always done our very best to have guests who are delighted with their stay. As one of the top rented homes on Captiva Island, we believe we have succeeded in that respect. In fact, we have many guests who return each year. They do so because we continuously improve the quality our home with things like new outside patios, new windows/doors, new appliances, furnishings and recently new kitchen cabinets and new pool tile/surface. Come stay at Millertime Villa…we know you will be delighted! Dan & Sue

Great location - perfect for family vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for my family (husband, 9 & 5 year old children). We were looking for a relaxing vacation and found the perfect spot! The beach was very private with plenty of space for the kids to run and play. The beaches on the island are lined with private homes and a couple of condos, it is not commercialized and there aren't rows of side by side beach chairs. Plenty of space for the kids to run and play, several yards of open space between the families who were on the beach. The walk to the beach is very minimal and through what my kids called the tropical jungle. The cart is easy to push/pull on sand and held all the chairs, towels, cooler and toys we needed.

The screened in porch was great and we sat outside almost every night and read, played cards and grilled out while the kids swam in the pool, completely bug free. The landscaping is gorgeous. There's a great variety of pool/beach toys to keep the kids entertained.

The property was extremely clean and exactly as described and the photos were current.

We cooked several meals and this is probably the best stocked kitchen I've seen through several previous home rentals.

The owner and manager were both very responsive to our questions.

We really enjoyed the Shell Museum and Captiva Wildlife cruise as well as the Imaginarium and Zoomers in Ft. Myers.

Our favorite meals were from Island Cow and Mucky Duck, but definitely get a desert from the Bubble Room and Killer Nachos from Keylime Bistro.

Miller Time decor is very bright, airy and "happy". We would love to come here again!

Owner's Response: Thanks to Crystal for this excellent detailed review! Captiva Island is truly a unique vacation destination with lots of natural beauty. The beach has just been renurished and is now wider and better than ever with lots of space and an abundance of sea shells. We are now celebrating our ten year anniversary of renting Millertime Villa with the goal of providing memorable beach vacations for our guests. We would love to have you as a guest! Dan & Sue Miller

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!
