Unbelievable Property!

  • 5 of 5

We just recently got married at the Bali Hi estate and it was beyond perfect in every way! The property is so beautiful and has so much to offer. For the wedding we had about 60 guests, a live band, and the ceremony right on the beach and it was spectacular. All of our guests just raved about how beautiful and fun it all was. Our Captiva is extremely helpful all along the way with answering questions and giving me as much information as possible while planning from over a thousand miles away! During our stay, we took full advantage of all the property has to offer - enjoying time at the beach, using the fire pit, hanging in the gorgeous pool area, and having meals on the deck! I highly recommend this property for weddings or just for an amazing vacation. We will definitely be back! The pictures can't even do it justice, it is truly a gem!

Owner's Response: Regular family vacations allow sleeping 16-22 guests and are our main stay, but we do many events, corporate off-sites and about a dozen or so Wedding receptions annually. The 2 acre property with over 150' beach frontage on the Gulf of Mexico is set on over 600' deep tropically landscaped gardens and private beach areas. Various out bldgs. such as Guest house, Gazebo and beach front decks afford copious space for breaking into smaller groups or gathering as a complete group of over 100 guess For the families we have swing sets, large sandy play area, kiddie house and large all family play chess. Kayaks, ample seating, chaise lounges, beach towels and all linens are included. We do try to think of everything. Come on down! :)

Perfect setting for a fabulous week in the sun!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 17, 8 adults and 9 children ranging in age from 11 years to newborn, enjoyed a fantastic week together at Bali Hi. Everything we needed for the week was provided by the owner, Mike, who came to welcome us - clean house with ample towels and linens, kitchen furnished with everything needed to serve and entertain a large group, beautifully landscaped pool with a built in hot tub that we had to drag the children out of to go to the beach, beautiful grounds and a playground area for the children. There were all kinds of beach chairs and toys, umbrellas, kayaks with life preservers, volleyball net, outdoor seating for our meals, just everything you can imagine to enhance our week's stay. Nacho, the grounds keeper and maintenance man, was very attentive to any requests we had. The beach was beautiful and private with lots of shells, birds and dolphins and we enjoyed many memorable sunsets. The house was spacious for our crew with separate bathrooms for each family. The guest house worked out well for our son's family of six. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed our relaxing week and we are already talking about returning to Captiva. Thank you, Mike, Nacho, Joe, Kirstin for an amazing week at Bali Hi!

Beautiful surroundings, amazing vacation spot, very well equipped

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of 9 adults and 3 children spent a wonderful week here, enjoying the well heated pool, very well equipped kitchen, easy access to the beach through beautifully landscaped grounds and use of kayaks and beach chairs. The kids loved the little playhouse and swingset as well as the ample assortment of balls, pool accessories and beach toys. The sandy yard was perfect for playing in and we enjoyed the local wildlife - we were lucky to see a marsh rabbit and a gopher tortoise sharing the grounds. We also gathered around the firepit watching the gorgeous sunset. The inside of the house offers multiple rooms large enough for us to gather around games or the TV and a choice of places to eat inside and out. The management was extremely responsive to even the most minor questions and supplied the house with a thoughtful "starter pack" of paper goods and soaps. It's a very quick trip to Captiva village for restaurants and any groceries and an easy 15 minute drive to all that Sanibel has to offer for those who wanted to do more than spend all their time at the pool or beach.

Bali Hi is an incredible piece of beach front property on Captiva Island. It truly is an Estate but there's nothing pretentious about it! My husband and I had our wedding at Bali Hi and wouldn't have changed it for the world. The property is impeccably maintained both inside and out. We had 12 guests stay on the property and there was plenty of room for more. My favorite aspect of the property is that there are so many different venues within in it. From the pool area to the huge back porch, to the beach firepit, and what truly feels like your own private beachfront on Captiva, the property is a gift that keeps on giving. Inside the house has everything you'll need for cooking and entertaining, plenty of storage, and a variety of spaces to hang out. We loved using the stereo which flooded the outside with music day and night. The landscaping is absolutely beautiful and made our wedding backdrop spectacular. Super clean and well maintained. We felt that the owner and property managers accommodated us completely and also left us alone to have the property to ourselves. The location is perfect because it's still close to Sanibel and a 5-minute drive to anywhere else on Captiva. I would recommend this property to anyone!

"Bali Hi" was truly a little slice of paradise in Captiva, FL! You did not feel like you were in Florida at all! You felt like you were in a tropical location with all the lush green landscape and white beaches! The house & guest were comfortable & spacious enough for our extended family of 20! WE had little ones, teens & mid twenty yr olds as well as 40, 50 & 70+ yr olds staying and there was something for everyone! Private & removed from the main area of Captiva but close enough by bike to enjoy the restaurants and shops! I would highly recommend Bali Hi for a family getaway and would definitely stay there again!

*A few notes - there was construction going on next door M-F from 8am - 3pm that we could have done without. I only hope the huge home being built does not impede itself on the quaint and welcoming Bali Hi Estate. One other small note was that the WiFi was spotty for two days of our stay but the maintenance service was quick to come to our rescue! Overall I would definitely give this place a 5 Stars and return again & again!

Fun house

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 11 had a wonderful time. The Volleyball Court was a favorite. We tried to book for the same time next year but it was already spoken for. The owner and all involved with the house couldn’t have been nicer.
