Property description

Welcome to the most peaceful place on earth - Captiva Island. We have tried to make our home as user-friendly as the lifestyle on Captiva. You can kick back and enjoy without thinking about life and work 'back home.'

We hope you select our rental for your next vacation - we've gone to great lengths to ensure a worry-free visit in every way we could envision.

If you invest your valuable vacation time and hard-earned money here, we believe you will get the best possible return on that investment. In fact, if you contact us, we will happily give you the names of several people who have stayed in our Captiva home. You are free to contact them to learn what they thought of the area or(if you're already familiar with Captiva) about our home there.

Thank you for viewing our property online and if you have ANY questions at all please contact us via e-mail or phone.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2002

About: We are both in residential real estate in the burbs of St Louis MO. We love 'beaching it' and Captiva has a fabulous beach. We're morning people, so we were married on the beach at the Lighthouse in Sanibel but many couples marry at sunset on Captiva beach. Only get to be there 3 or 4 times a year, but it's heaven for us.

Why Captiva Island:
We've always been beach-loving people and Captiva just blew us away with its low key, sophisticated lifestyle. It is a fabulous family vacation spot, especially in Sunset Captiva. And you never know whom you might see at the Key Lime Bistro, Mucky Duck, Bubble Room or Island Store...celebrities are tucked away in their private enclaves, but they do emerge at times.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our vacation home is so easy to enjoy. It is equipped and accessorized so completely that guests have stated that they are utterly amazed by the completeness of it. (We even have a salad spinner!) We're only a 3-minute stroll to the pool and the boardwalk to the beach is right there. We do not offer a beach-front experience, but we have tried to offer much more than you'll find at most other vacation homes.
