Captiva Island. “Happy Daze” - beautiful, child-friendly home with a very private, well heated pool. The home is a very short walk to the beach (the island is only about 600 yards wide, at its widest point) and shops and restaurants in the village.

Our single family home has five bedrooms, four with four attached full baths, two with king beds, one with a queen bed, and one with two sets of bunk beds. There is also a fifth bedroom off the kitchen that is appropriate for children; it has a daybed and a fold-out couch. The house comfortably sleeps twelve people.

The property has an elevator and is accessible for those with disabilities, but is not specifically configured for those with disabilities (does not have hand bars in bathrooms, a roll-in shower, etc.) It also has wireless, broadband cable modem access, a laundry room and other amenities.

This is a bright, cheerful and very comfortable home that is a wonderful place to bring your children for a vacation. Good fun for all; lots of board games, children’s videos and TV, ping-pong and pool tables by the pool! Come see the dolphins, manatees and river otters swimming nearby!

The pool is standard size, sloping to about six feet in depth at the deep end. Pool is kept heated to approximately 90 degrees year round to encourage children to swim and play in the pool, have fun and burn off energy! Please call in advance if you would like the pool temperature lowered.

The stated weekly rental rates include all taxes and fees. There are no additional charges.

Could be an awesome house! Two and a half stars

  • 3 of 5

My family and I stayed here for a week. Seven adults. This could be an amazing place, but several things brought down our opinion of it. First, it could have been much cleaner. The bathrooms were quite dirty around the toilets. The baseboards and floors looked like they hadn't been cleaned in a very long time. The patio furniture could have used a cleaning also. A lot of the house just seemed run down, including some of the furniture, while some of the furniture was very nice. The ice maker didn't work. Most of the remotes for the tvs lacked working batteries. The gas grill by the pool was so gross we didn't use it. Many of the closet doors and the sliding doors to a den off the family room didn't work properly.

The pluses were having enough bedrooms for everyone, with their own bathrooms. The house is huge! The pool and hot tub are great. (Once we found the almost hidden, unlabled buttons for the hot tub. A renters manuel explaining such things would be nice.) There are four porches, one of them screened in. There are enough dishes and cooking utensils to run a restaurant! It was fun playing pool under the overhang by the pool. There is also a ping pong table that looked brand new. The beds were all very comfortable. The location is very convenient to the beach and many restaurants.

We did have a great time during our stay, but with some TLC this house could be outstanding! I understand it is priced less than many others, but could be so much better.

Owner's Response: This is fair criticism. We hadn't been down to Captiva in a while and things got a bit away from us. We have gotten back on top of things, cleaned things up and changed rental management companies. Just give Laurel at ReMax a call and she can talk you through the house, the changes we have made, and even do a FaceTime walk through of the house if it is helpful. Thanks for reading!

We were so lucky to be able to book this property last minute as the original property we selected got bedbugs. The owner and the property management company were absolutely wonderful and accommodating. We had 3 families with small children and the set up was just perfect. There was enough room for everyone to spread out and the pool was situated in a way that we were safely able to know that the kids couldn't access it on their own. WE WANT TO COME BACK NEXT YEAR!!! It was so lovely and such a beautiful location. THANK YOU A MILLION TIMES OVER TO THE OWNER!!! Thank you!!!

We had a fantastic time on Captiva Island, and this home more than met our expectations! We loved it so much, that we immediately booked it for the next year. We found the Royal Shell people to be very helpful as well.

Captiva is a great palce for kids and this is a great home to rent!

  • 5 of 5

Our experience was very, very positive and very similar to the other reviewers. I guess the only difference is that the owners appear to have replaced the glass banquet with a conventional dining table that was very nice, seated 8-10, and appeared brand new.

This is a great home and a great value compared to other homes we have rented on Captiva in the past. I'm not sure why the rates are a little low, because this is a super place. Our kids had fun as usual and it is truly very child friendly, with lots of board games, very warm pool (important in December) and a nice ping pong table and pool table by the pool.

We would definitely rent this place again!

Great location, great house

  • 5 of 5

This house seemed too good to be true because it seemed to offer so much more for your money than any of the other rentals I found on Captiva. But we just finished our vacation there and loved it. The house itself is well laid-out in terms of bedrooms/bathrooms and all the furnishings are high quality and as advertised. I'd repeat the comment of a previous poster that we found the big glass dining room table to be not very functional for our needs but it wasn't really a huge deal to us. The pool area with ping pong, pool tables, and a separate beer/mini fridge were excellent.

The location can't be beat. Other than a few trips to Sanibel, we never even had to use the car. Close to the general store, restaurants, beach, marina. Highly recommend. If my family goes back to Captiva for a future trip, I'll definitely try to rent the house again.

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in Happy Daze and would highly recommend this house for large families. The only negative, in our opinion, was the dining room table. It is large and beautiful but not very practical for a group of is a HUGE, glass, booth-like table built in to the nook area of the kitchen. In order to use the table, it requires A LOT of scooting in and then you are pretty much stuck if you are in the inside. The house is close to the beach and the shopping area...very close to the Bubble Room. We really enjoyed the pool, ping pong table, and the pool table.
