About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Den, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Welcome to our luxury vacation home paradise, located on world famous Captiva Island. Our home is appropriately named 'Bellativa' or 'Beautiful Captiva.' The spectacular white sand beaches are only twenty-five yards from your door step, and your family can create many years of memories in this spacious, designer appointed home.

At Bellativa, you can relax in the private, kidney-shaped stone pool with a fountain spilling in from the hot tub. Inside the home, enjoy an entertainment room that opens to the pool area; the room is equipped with a 42' flat screen television and inviting furnishings.

The 4 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms, with an additional sleeper sofa in the big screen media entertainment room, will comfortably accommodate your family and friends. The master bedroom houses a king-size bed, a wet bar with refrigerator, direct access to the elevator, and beautiful French doors leading out to a private patio. The master bath is equipped with a Jacuzzi tub with a separate stone tile shower. Additionally, two suites are furnished with Queen beds and have private baths, and one suite contains two full beds.

You will enjoy an atmosphere perfectly suited for entertaining and relaxing in the open living and dining areas. The inviting living room features 24-foot ceilings and a fireplace, and you can experience the beach at home through the oversized Palladian windows. Through the dining area, you can easily access the fully equipped gourmet kitchen. Or, let someone else do the cooking at the famous “Mucky Duck” and “Bubble Room” restaurants, both within walking distance. With all of these wonderful benefits, we are sure that you will want to make Bellativa an annual tradition.

Although the web site photos are appealing they do not do justice to the size and beauty of this home. All rooms are large, clean and well appointed. The kitchen is huge and fully stocked with appliances, dishes, etc. Outdoor areas include screened-in porch, sun balcony and great pool and hot tub which is fenced. Perfect for kids of all ages and adults. Best of all is the location. Street is quiet with little vehicular traffic. We were surprised to have towels, umbrellas, chairs, toys and floats for the beach. You can walk back and forth from the house to the beach in two minutes, unbelievably convenient. Finally, the home is a short walk to "downtown" Captive where there is shopping and dining. Once at the house, a car can be parked in the garage and left there for your entire visit. I would not hesitate to stay at the property again and unequivocally recommend this home for families or friends.

Beautiful home!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in this home, and we will definitely be back again! The wood floors have been replaced and the linens were new and very comfortable in the master bedroom. The pool and hot tub area are the focal point of the home and we spent many wonderful hours there playing our kids and catching up with family. The elevator, along with the proximity to the beach, library, and town were HUGE conveniences. Everything worked perfectly for us all week and we found the home to be very clean upon our check in.

A great way to spend Thanksgiving week

  • 5 of 5

Bellativa was the perfect place for our three generation family to spend Thanksgiving week. Your home is everything it is advertised to be with plenty of room for all. The spacious kitchen and eating areas made it fun to cook our turkey dinner and the pool/hot tub/waterfall were enjoyed by kids and adults alike. The convenience to the beach was perfect as was the short walk to Mucky Duck, Keylime Bistro, Sunshine Seafood and RC Otter. We had a great time and would certainly be interested in coming back in the future.

Our family had stayed at Bellativa 6 years ago and loved it! This year we decided to come back and there were 10 of us. The weather was beautiful the entire week. And we loved the beach, the restaurants, the shelling and the quiet beauty of Captiva.

I had read a very negative review of Bellativa, and had enough concerns to call Royal Shell. Joe, the property manager personally made a visit to the house, took pictures and sent them to me. And the only thing that really seemed to be a true complaint was the wooden floors, that were very scratched. Joe told us the house was being repainted and the floors refinished in August.

The master bedroom shower was difficult to figure out. The handle needs to be pulled out and then turned. And the Jacuzzi in that bath was also not working. But that had tripped the circuit breaker and was an easy fix.

The pool also needed the filter replaced ...a pool company was sent...and there were no other issues here.

Although the listing says it sleeps 12, the pull-out sofa in the media room is not acceptable for adults. The mattress is VERY thin, and the bar is felt through the mattress. We called Royal Shell, and they brought out an Aerobed right away. Obviously the sofa has aged and needs to be replaced.

So....except for these glitches that a call to Royal She'll fixed immediately, Bellativa is a wonderful, beautiful house in a great location, on a spectacular island!! And we hope to visit this house again!

What a fantastic house. My entire family went to Captiva this past week and we stayed in Bellativa! What a beautiful house. My parents just kept commenting on how beautiful the place was. There were 12 of us and plenty of room to sleep and move around. The pool is magnificent. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need. The master suite was my favorite. :) Such a huge room. We had enough floor space to put 2 twin air mattresses down and still walk around them. The bedding was so super. I want to buy the sheets. haha! The elevator came in so handy with my parents there. The place was extremely CLEAN. ( I am a bit of a clean freak)! The walk to the beach was extremely easy and the path was so pretty to walk along. Plenty of beach towels and beach chairs available. Would definitely recommend this house to anyone wanting to stay on Captiva. The owners seem to be awesome people. They answered all my questions in such a timely manner. Oh, and the last day we had a 'herd' of manatee swim by us in the ocean. Totally cool.
