About the property

House, 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, sleeps 12

Location! Location! Gulf front with sparkling waters and Captiva beach right out the front door, yet it is a short walk to the village to visit your favorite bar or restaurant. This is the house that has it all -- close to the village, but far enough away to enjoy the quiet and private life on miles of shell strewn beach. This gulf to bay location affords the best of both shores with quick access to the inter-coastal water of pine island sound for fishing and boating.

You'll be captivated by beauty, both inside and out, when you visit this 5 bedroom/4 bath luxurious home on Captiva Island. Aloha baby is professionally decorated with a warm, welcoming, casual feel that's accompanied by amazing openness and breath-taking views. This property with developed tropical landscaping and a quiet, secluded heated pool and spa is truly an island paradise.

Enjoy unobstructed views of the Gulf of Mexico from the many windows in the spacious Master Bedroom with King sized bed and a large chaise lounge for afternoon napping or reading. The master suite includes a flat screen TV with cable, DVD player, walk-in closet, and master bath with 2 person, 10 jet tub, separate shower, double sinks, and dressing table. Step out of the French doors to enjoy your large private master balcony and view amazing sunsets.

Aloha Baby features a fully equipped, gourmet kitchen with gas stove top, dual ovens, large subzero refrigerator/freezer. Custom cabinetry, granite counters, and tile complete the sleek look. The Laundry Room is conveniently located off of the kitchen.

Bamboo wood floors compliment the large living room with gas fireplace, vaulted ceilings, plantation shutters, and plenty of plush seating. The sitting nook has a large flat screen TV. The entire home, including the pool area, is equipped with surround sound speakers. The Theater room with 78' flat screen has 4 large leather recliners and a reclining love seat. Wireless internet is available from any room in the house.

The main floor includes a queen guest room with cable TV and private bath. The upper level guest rooms are adjoined by an oversized Jack and Jill bath with dual shower heads. The sunrise view over the bay is available from the two upper level guest rooms. This home can comfortably sleep 12. There's a large elevator to accommodate the elderly or anyone who's just plain tired!

The lower level includes a tiled area with pool table, air hockey, soft tip dart board, seating, and Theater room. French doors lead to the immaculate and beautifully landscaped pool area with spa and waterfall. The garage will accommodate up to four vehicles. Beach chairs, umbrellas, toys, pool games, pack 'n play, and even a red wagon for easy transport to the beach are available.

Nature abounds on the tranquil isles of Captiva and Sanibel Islands. The shoreline is sprinkled with fabulous shells and exotic birds. Bike, kayak, and Segway rentals are available. Anglers will delight in the fishing in this area, while golfers can enjoy several nearby public courses.

Guestbook comments from the owner

If you are looking to relax and get away from all the commercial vacation spots, Captiva is the perfect destination! Private, yet enough things to keep the family occupied. The Aloha Baby home is absolutely beautiful! Here are some things I appreciated most about the home (mostly because I didn't have to pack them from Ohio): multiple pack n plays, high chairs, wagon, beach towels, beach chairs and beach toys. We LOVED having the golf cart to make trips to the market or shops quick and easy. We didn't get to enjoy the bikes like I thought we would, but I think when our children are a little older it will make biking a little more enjoyable. One thing I wish that house had was some sort of baby gates for stairs. It was difficult to keep our one year old off the stairs all week. Overall the accommodations were amazing! We took this vacation with my in-laws and nieces and nephews. We have a large family and we were all able to have our own space, yet still be together for vacation. Not only is the home itself absolutely beautiful, the location could not be better! The kids loved being right on the beach and also having the option of playing in the pool right in the backyard. The beach was NEVER crowded and we saw dolphins and manatees almost everyday! I think that was one of the highlights for us. My husband did not have much luck on his fly fishing trip while we were there, so he is already talking about going back to Captiva to catch a Tarpon on his fly rod! Thank you again for opening your home to our family. We hope to be back for another visit in the future!

Oh Yeah Baby!

  • 5 of 5

Aloha Baby was the perfect property for our family celebration of our 40th anniversary! Our family was very comfortable and loved the warm, private pool and spa. The lush greenery surrounding the pool creates a beautiful privacy fence and it was wonderful to have the ability to grill our meals poolside. There is an abundance of pool toys and towels. The beach is very close too - just a short walk across the road to what seemed to be our own private beach. Our youngest grandchildren (3 and 5) walked to the beach with no problem. The wagon and beach chairs and toys are great for an afternoon on the beach. The views from the balconies are absolutely breath-taking. We would gather there every night to watch the beautiful sunsets. The main living areas are large and comfortable, with smaller areas arranged for quiet conversation. The kitchen has everything you need to cook a great meal and a large refrigerator/freezer and pantry to accommodate food for a large family. The washing machine and dryer have a great location, right off the kitchen. The bedrooms are all very comfortable and private with their own bathrooms and televisions. The master suite is very large and has the most amazing views of the Gulf! We watched the Super Bowl in the theater room, which was a lot of fun - especially for our grandchildren. The location of the house is perfect! Restaurants, bars, and grocery stores are very close and within walking distance. We were all very sad to leave and plan to return again very soon!

Best vacation ever

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful week on Captiva Island at Aloha Baby. The home was beyond expectations and so comfortable we felt at home instantly. The view was amazing and it was only a few steps to the beach for sunsets every evening. We were there as part of a family reunion and the house couldn't have been more perfect for that. The owners have thought of everything. The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. It has large areas for gatherings and small cluster areas for conversations. The pool and hot tub were warm and wonderful and the game room for the kids was a dream. There were even bicycles available to explore the area. We caught a play-off game in the home theater and had fun cruising around the island with the golf cart. We were able to walk a short distance to the Mucky Duck for "the best rum drinks" on the island. We also found the "best" fish sandwiches, the "best" key lime pie and the BEST home on Captiva! We were truly able to leave our work behind and relax for a week. I wish I could give it more than five stars because it is that much nicer.

A Dream Come True!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about this property! Every inch was beautiful and well-maintained. It is exactly what was shown on the site, but the beauty could not properly be captured in pictures. There were several different families present and there was more than enough room for all of us to feel comfortable separately or all together. We all enjoyed the sunset over the ocean each evening from the Master balcony. The beach is literally steps away (as you can see from the balcony pictures) and I thoroughly enjoyed taking a walk and searching for shells every single morning at sunrise. Captiva itself is such a quaint little village with AMAZING dining choices! And for those wanting to do a little more shopping, Sanibel is a less than 20 minute drive and Fort Myers is a little under an hour and has many more of the chain shops and restaurants one is accustomed to. I have and will continue to recommend this property to friends and family and we are already discussing a return visit next year!

It doesn't get any better than Aloha Baby. The house is huge, well maintained, modern and spotless. The grounds are well-manicured with lots of interesting plants and trees that also provide total privacy. The large, open kitchen is upgraded and has everything you need. The master bedroom (suite) is beyond beautiful. The master bath has a gorgeous tile shower, soaking tub, double vanities, and large walk-in closet with lots of shelves. Off the bedroom is a terrace with table and chairs and the best sunset views imaginable.

This home has something for everyone. Pool, hot tub, and game room for all age groups. The theatre room is a real bonus with comfortable leather seating. There are lots of water toys to use: floats, noodles, sand toys for the kids, and a sturdy wagon to pull everything to the beach. And lots of extra beach towels (so you don't need to bring your own).

The beach----just steps across the street is your own mostly deserted private beach, with amazing soft sand and plenty of shells.

The location of the house is perfect. It is within easy walking distance of the village, but far enough away to be quiet. The house comes with an optional golf cart. It is well worth it, as it is not your usual golf cart. It is actually a golf 'car' that can go places on the island that golf carts cannot. It also has a 'trunk' to load up groceries or supplies if needed. Not to mention, just plain fun to ride around in.

Aloha Baby is one of the best houses we have ever stayed in. It was incredibly sad to leave it. We hope to return again next year. If it was an option, I would rate this house 6 stars.

Vacation Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th year of making memories with our family at Aloha Baby. Six adults and 5 kids enjoyed the beach, pool,hot tub, theater room along with game room and ping pong. Captiva village is just minutes away as well A marina from which we went on shelling excursion this year. It's a perfect home for family or groups that want to enjoy time together but have ample space. The Beach is fairly private but a short walk to Mucky Duck Restaurant. Our family is excited to return for our 5th year in 2017.

Breathtaking View - A Trip to Remember

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Aloha Baby on Captiva Island was a trip to remember. My family has vacationed in the Sanibel/Captiva area for the last 30+ years. We had been planning this family get together for well over a year. There were plenty of rooms to accommodate my family, my sister's family and my elderly mother ranging in age from 2 to 85. This was our first time at Aloha Baby and it has turned out to be our best visit yet! The property management company, Kingfisher Vacations, was easy to work with and provided detailed instructions for our pending arrival.

The beautiful home was warm and welcoming. The elevator was an added bonus as my 85 year old mother was able to get around the house with ease. After our morning golf cart ride to a local coffee shop, we spent our mornings at the beach and our afternoons sitting by the private pool. It was especially nice to have the variety of pool floats as well as the handy beach wagon and chairs to use. My husband and I particularly enjoyed the evening sunsets and dolphin sightings right outside our master bedroom suite balcony. While we felt very secluded, shopping and the best local restaurants are just around the corner.

We enjoyed our stay so much, that we have rebooked Aloha Baby for the same time next year!
