We know you will love our Captiva Island Hide-A-Way. The views of the bay are fantastic, especially at sunrise.
Our beautiful condo has been completely remodeled since Hurricane Charlie in 2004. Done in colorful island style with Mexican tile floors, cathedral ceilings, a gourmet kitchen with granite countertops and a library.
The pool is right beside the bay and boat dock. Morning coffee, fishing and wildlife viewing are wonderful from the dock.
Rent kayaks or take a boat to another island from McCarthy's Marina, a two minute walk. Within five minutes walk to the beach for some of the best shelling and sunsets in the world. Restaurants, coffee shops, gift shops, island shopping also within a five minute walk.
We have a barbecue grill in our newly landscaped garden. Bikes are available for your use.
You will find everything you need to enjoy this island paradise.

We both worked in education as a teacher and a counselor. We are now retired and spend time here in Captiva and traveling.
Owner purchased this Condo in 1998
Why Owner chose Captiva
We fell in love with Captiva while vacationing here about 15 years ago. We were looking for somewhere quiet, different from the east coast of Florida-no high rises or chain stores. We found it here. You don't have to get in a car all week if you don't want to. Everything you need is in easy walking distance. If you want activity-biking, kayaking, tennis, theater, restaurants, shopping it is here. If you want relaxation, shelling, sunsets, wildlife viewing, lounging and reading, you can have that too. We have found this to be a very inviting, friendly island.
What makes this Condo unique
We especially love waking up to fantastic sunrises. Dolphin viewing is a daily activity. We appreciate being able to walk to everything we need including renting of kayaks and ferry rides to other islands. The bike path has been a great addition. Island music at local restaurants is fun. A morning walk on the beach is a great way to get exercise and then returning for sunset is a wonderful way to end the day.

Pictures right on target - beautiful view and accommodations.
Wonderful stay over Easter break for a family of four. Condo was beautiful and close to the beach and restaurants. We walked or road bikes most days. The dock was great for fishing and even had a fishing charter pick us up right from the dock. The kitchen was well stocked and enjoyed many dinners in the beautiful lanai. We would definitely book another trip at Captiva Hide-A-Way.
Perfect location. Perfect accommodations.
The bay view is fantastic. Manatees and porpoises visited the pier regularly during our late February visit. Loved the heated pool and lounges. Easy walking distance to restaurants, marinas and the beach. The condo is beautifully decorated, exceptionally furnished, stocked with beach towels, and has an impressive library of books. One word of note: The unit is on the second floor so be prepared for a few steps but in my opinion the view makes it worth those few steps. I am a frequent VRBO renter and I do highly recommend this home for your vacation.
Nice spot - close to everything on Captiva!
We had a lovely week in Captiva at this property. The condo was clean and updated. Make sure all of your group is OK with stairs! 2 flights up to condo and 2 spiral flights down to pool. Probably a good thing after all the delightful food nearby!
I give 4 stars rather than 5 due to the bed pillows for all beds - not comfortable at all - for overnight that's OK - for a week - not so much!
A great week!
John and Cindy have a very nice place.....overlooking the bay and swimming pool. Everything was as advertised. Very clean and well maintained. There were a couple of minor mechanical issues with appliances but John and Cindy, and Ron, the friendly property manager, had them fixed quickly. The kitchen had everything needed to "eat in"....the local restaurants are good but pricey. Doc Ford's and the Green Flash were the best. We certainly will stay there again!
Looking for rest and relaxation.? This is the perfect place! The unit is exceptionally clean and provides everything you need. Wake to the sounds of birds chirping and the beauty of the sun rising from the bay. Don't miss the gorgeous sunsets on the gulf side. Enjoyed the best breakfast and lunches at Rosie's Place, not to mention the baked goods. Walking distance to Ambu Yoga and a variety of shops. Will I be back? You bet! Thank you Cindy and John. Forgot to mention Ron ( maintenance man) who tended to all our needs.
Definitely coming back! Fantastic place, amazing view, very comfortable, perfect location
We had such a wonderful vacation in Captiva staying here! John & Cindy were very easy to deal with and followed up right away. When we walking into the place we were met with an amazing view of the bay. My husband fished off the dock, the pool was very relaxing and it's less than 5 minutes to walk to the beach.
We loved the herb garden next to the grill, and the onsite manager Ron was very helpful.
Bathrooms were very nice (great water pressure in the showers.). Living room very comfortable to hang out. Kitchen well stocked with all the tools we needed. We're definitely coming back here every year!
