Experience the laid back, easy Captiva Island lifestyle with this classic 2 bedroom, 2 full bath cottage with no stairs to deal with. This is an extremely easy home to entertain children. You'll see why this is perhaps the most popular rental house on Captiva based on rental history.
Please Note: We accept only Saturday to Saturday reservations, as is the standard on Captiva Island. We accept reservations no further than a year in advance, as current guests have first option to reserve the same week the following year. If the guests do not re-book by 10am of their departure day, a new reservation request will be accepted.
And also, please note, we're on Captiva Island where you can drive to, unlike North Captiva - a totally separate destination - where no cars are permitted.
The Mermaid's private, secluded, 26x14 ft heated and newly re-surfaced pool with paver stone deck is just off the double French doors of the living room. The Mermaid Home may be called a cottage, but this house is as well updated and perhaps better equipped than a new luxury home.
Included is a 42' HDTV, a 6 disc CD player with large music selection, Bluetooth connection to our 100 watt Onkyo receiver and Bose inside and Yamaha outside pool speakers. Wireless Comcast Internet is in place.
The master bedroom has a King bed with HDTV and a master bath with step down shower large enough for two and is equipped with 2 shower heads. The guest bedroom is twin equipped and has an HDTV with DVD. The living room provides a very comfortable Italian leather queen size sleeper sofa, The hall way full bath services the guest room and living room guests.
The kitchen is fully equipped with Ice making refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, coffee and espresso machines and all utensils. The adjacent open dining area has a table for 4 and stools at the kitchen bar for 2 more. A stainless gas grill is outside the kitchen and pool area, with a spare propane tank always available for heavy use. A washer and dryer is provided in the adjacent laundry room.
Included is a handy beach cart to haul all the beach chairs, umbrellas, cooler, beach toys and beach towels to the beach
The grounds are covered with many varieties of tropical flowering plants, the beach is a short two minute walk and the docks of the bay are even closer. Captiva's charming village center is a five minute walk from the house.
Personally maintained by the owners, this home is one of the very few Captiva rental houses not managed by a management company. We personally supervise and assist our cleaning staff each Saturday. As the last to walk out the door prior to your arrival, we can assure you the Mermaid Home is one of the most immaculate and best prepared homes on Captiva, both inside and outside.
