Captiva Island house description

Absentminded is the perfect vacation home located in the center of the Village of Captiva.
This 4 bedroom/4.5 bath private home comfortably sleeps 10 (family members or multiple couples) in a beautifully furnished island style. The house features a three story caged lanai and heated pool with spa and comes fully equipped with great amenities including a built in gas grill on the pool lanai!
Less than 1 block: To the Beach for shelling, sunbathing and swimming,
To the Bay for fishing, boating, manatee watching,
To Restaurants and shops,
To Southseas Resort...


Ground floor entrance is inviting and functional with four separate lockers to store all your beach supplies (or those nasty winter coats and boots) while you enjoy the Captiva Sunshine! The beach towels are here in the entrance so don't forget to pick one up before you head to the beach or pool! The two car garage has plenty of beach chairs, beach carts, and beach umbrellas for your short walk down Laika Lane to Captiva's beautiful beach. The garage even features elevator access (for our guests requiring accessibility), an extra refrigerator and freezer, and bicycles (available for an extra charge).

Welcome to the Sunshine!!!!

Walking onto the main floor of the house, you’re greeted by the florida sunshine as it streams through plantation shutters into an open floor plan AND the Shelly the Turtle prominently displayed on the main wall of the Great Room. There is plenty of seating for all our guests, a 55 inch LCD TV and DVD player, cathedral ceilings with a ceiling fan, and a wall of windows with french doors leading out to the screened upper living-room lanai with a spiral staircase to the pool deck below. The well equipped and large kitchen with breakfast nook is inviting for the cook and the take-out crowd alike. The adjacent dining room includes a dining table with seating for 10 people and double french doors out to yet another screened deck overlooking the pool. The main floor king-size bedroom suite has a full bathroom with step-in shower. The office/den includes a desk, book cases, and extra sleeping space with a daybed and trundle. The main level is also equipped with a washer and dryer in it's own laundry room so pack light!!!

Three upper level bedroom suites!!! Walk up a few stairs to the third level and the three additional bedroom suites. The first suite, the Black and White Room, has a king-sized bed with a large full bathroom with step-in shower. The 2nd suite features a queen-sized bed with an attached bathroom with a full size tub for bathing little ones. The master suite is huge with a king-sized bed, an en-suite large bathroom with double vanity sinks, jacuzzi tub, separate shower, and dressing table with terry covered dressing chair. Master suite occupants will lounge on the private deck in their “cuddle chairs” overlooking the pool area below. Pine Island Sound is visible from this deck.


Ground floor pool deck!!!: The ground floor lower level includes a half-bath powder room convenient to the large three story screened-in entertainment/pool room with a built-in gas BBQ grill, bar height table, teak bar, and multiple lounge chairs for lazing around the heated pool and spa. The pool deck also features an outdoor shower and pool changing room for our guests. This is an amazing outdoor room, you will never want to leave the house!!!
