Florida House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 7-8)

Beautiful Island house remodeled in 2013. Ideal location close to shops, restaurants and Captiva Village. Short two block walk to the beach and the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico, and a half block to the bay. We see dolphin and manatee in the bay all the time.

This home has ground floor living, so no stairs to climb everytime you come home from the beach. Sleeps 4 on ground floor with 3 more upstairs. Wonderful back yard completely private, with hot water rinse off shower for sandy feet. Parking for three cars.

Island House

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the island house! It is located in the heart of Captiva and 5 minutes from the beach. It is a great location because there are so many things you can do within walking distance. It fit 7 of us comfortably and there was plenty of space. The separate quarters upstairs was perfect! The yard had a BBQ and space to relax. Very clean

Summer getaway on Captiva

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at the Island House in the summer and found it to be the perfect location. It's a five min. walk to the beach which always has a breeze helping to make FL in the summer comfortable! There are a variety of restaurants within walking distance with some outstanding options. The home is comfortable and relaxing with plenty of space to gather and is on a quiet street. The separate upstairs is a great option for older children to have their own space. We look forward to returning soon!

Island House

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect low key island getaway. The street is quite and faces east for the morning sunrises. The house is well equipped, and comfortable. If you are looking for the glitz and glimmer of Naples this is not your place. If you are looking for a very relaxing place to unplug you have found your place. We rode our rented beach cruisers to the beach 400 yd short ride every day, and left our umbrella and chairs there overnight so that minimized the daily gear effort. The house is close enough to run back forth for forgotten items or lunch. There are many dining options within walking distance as well. For groceries you will want to stop in Captiva though there are options for some items right around the corner. The separate upstairs make great separate quarters for kids and grandkids as we did, or another couple with great privacy. This was our 3rd visit and everyone loved it.

Owner's Response: To clarify, I think you meant stop in Sanibel for groceries, or Ft. Myers. Yes, we have a few small convenient stores nearby, but the large grocery options are best done pre arrival.

WONDERFUL house, wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent Christmas week at the Island House. The place is charming, and has everything you need. If you're looking for luxury, this isn't for you - but if you are looking for charm, comfort, and cleanliness, with a cozy feel and pretty furnishings, it will be perfect. The living room is plenty big for everyone to be in and all have a seat (there were 6 or 7 of us at different times during the week). The downstairs was plenty big for our family of four (two grown children), and we had friends who stayed upstairs. This is the perfect set up for small families vacationing together where you can visit and eat together downstairs, but get some space once in a while. Tom is a wonderful owner, and was very very responsive and helpful. And once you are at the house, except for REAL grocery shopping (there is a general store right around the corner, but the real grocery is about 10 miles away), you won't need a car AT ALL. Everything is walking distance. We rented a golf cart for 6, and it was perfect for tooling around. This was our first time to Captiva, and we couldn't have been more pleased. It was the perfect family Christmas gift!

Fantastic Stay over New Years

  • 5 of 5

Great property, comfortable and quaint. My family of 5, with 3 boys 7, 9, and 12 thoroughly enjoyed the house and Captiva and surroundings. We stayed on the 1st floor and did it was perfect for us... if you have a larger family or extended family the upstairs seems terrific as well. It's a convenient short walk to Muddy Duck and other Andy Rosse establishments. The kitchen is well equipped, we utilized the backyard grill for several meals, walked over to the Bubble Room and RC Otters for lunches, and had marina facilities a few houses down at McCarthy's. A great value, a beautiful house. Thanks Tom!

Owner's Response: Great comment on the flexibility of the house and how a family with 3 younger kids can easily stay all in the downstairs. We are so glad your family enjoyed their stay. Tom

Wonderful retreat ...

  • 5 of 5

Captiva is a great island getaway full of natural beauty, great beaches and peaceful sunsets. The Island House is located close to everything, yet is peaceful and quiet. We ditched the car for bikes cruised the island. Resturants, beach and kayaking are all within walking distance. Great place.
