Beautiful home with all the amenities you'd need on vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed on Sanibel for years but decided to try Captiva after finding this beautiful home. It did not disappoint! Upon arrival we found the house to be spotless. The artwork is very interesting and the decor is so bright and comfy. The porch is full of beach items: rafts, chairs, pool noodles, umbrellas and of course wagons to haul it all to the beach. The path to the beach is across the street and easily accessible. There are no water views from this home. The pool is down the back stairs and very private (the owners home is adjacent but they weren't there during our stay so we only saw a few maintenance workers). As other reviews stated the pool can be shaded a lot of the day but in the July heat it was welcomed! There are a lot of pool rafts/noodles under the porch to use. The dock was so much fun. We did a lot of fishing and watched dolphins and manatee daily. The steps you see in the pictures are up to the front door so I wouldn't recommend for someone that has a hard time with stairs! We had a wonderful stay and had everything we needed. Great vacation home and very nice owners! My only regret is I didn't get to meet them in person after reading all the great things people had to say about them!

  • 5 of 5

We loved Captiva and the house was perfect for us. Close to the beach and bay. Close to wonderful restaurants and shopping. Also great running/walking/biking trails close by. Weather was perfect and the lush foliage was like being in tropical paradise. The owners were very friendly and helpful.

Clean, spacious and in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Captiva Vacation Home with another couple. The house was spotless, a sticking point with me. The split bedroom layout of the home, with the living space separating the bedrooms, was perfect, giving everyone a lot of privacy. The dock was a tranquil place for morning coffee, enjoying the sunrise and watching all the different birds and fish and the dolphins. Across the street on the gulf, we were often the only ones on the beach. It was great to be away from the crowds on Sanibel, yet being just over the bridge, it was easy access to the Darling park, shops, and additional restaurants. The owners were very responsive and helpful. If needed, there was plenty of room for a third couple (push the twin beds together) or a large family.

Everything was exactly as pictured, lovely & spacious home.

  • 4 of 5

Spent labor day there, met our daughter over there from FGCU, even had some of her friends over for the day

to cook out & enjoy the pool & beach. The owners are very friendly, we fished every night off their dock & caught

16+ fish in less than 2 hours. Our Boxer Bentley even had a great trip, thanks for letting him join us.
