Captiva Island house description

Beautiful, tropical, two level home with kitchen, living room and five bedrooms; four baths, clean, white tiled floors, living room deck (12x42) with OUTDOOR TV which is within the pool cage, plus rooftop sunning deck, screened and heated pool, steps from the white sandy beach on the Gulf of Mexico and steps from the Bay. Perfect for shelling, fishing, kayaking, biking and sunsets, walking distance to charming restaurants and unique shops and art galleries in the Village of Captiva. Tennis and golf are available in Sanibel just minutes from Captiva. We are within the 'Village' area where you may use rented golf carts.
The first level may be used as a private In-law Suite or Nanny Suite with its own bath, living room, kitchenette. It has a secondary private entrance for added convenience. The 'Cabana' room with kitchenette and sliders to pool, may be used for bedroom with 2 twin beds and 'Jack and Jill' bath. Each of the other three bedrooms has a private bathroom and are a king, queen and 2 twins.
Sleeps ten; pets allowed with deposit; all modern amenities including HEATED pool and sand chairs for the beach , big stainless steel gas grill with one sauce burner , WIFI internet and ( flat screens & classic) televisions.

Rented weekly. From $2300 to $5500 depending on week and season. Multiple week discount negotiable. Most pets allowed. We pay the cleaning fee. We pay the Florida Lodging tax of 11%. Most homes add this on later.

New fridge and dishwasher. Brand new roof decking. We are SO excited about adding on to the deck off the living room level which will take it all the way across the entire back of the house. The deck is now 12' by 42'. New carpeting in the screened porch and the staircase between levels. New living room furniture - see photo.
All of this has been finished already. We are tickled pink with this year's changes!

                  There is no place called Captiva Shores, we ARE on Captiva Island!!! This is a glitch in the web page. We are the third in from the Gulf beach on one side, to the West and we are the third in from the Bay on the east. Sunrises and sunsets are GORGEOUS in Captiva!!!

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2000

                  About the owner: We had a great afternoon at the Crafts Fair in Sanibel. My husband took this of us standing in front of a mirror we wanted to buy.

                  Why the Owner Chose Captiva Island:
                  It's so fabulous to go out of our driveway and go west, three properties to the Gulf beach or leave our driveway and go east three properties and be on the calm Bay waters. We are very close to all the restaurants and shops on Andy Rosse, but sweetly out of ear-shot! We are within the 'Village area where you are allowed to use rented golf carts. No matter what fun we want...it's SO EASY.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Just added to the deck which is now a tremendous 12 x 42. New Living Room and new Deck furniture. A brand new OUTDOOR TV on the Living Room deck. All under the protection of the screened pool cage for your comfort. Rooftop sunning deck. Brand new Fridge with filtered water and ice maker. New dishwasher. We have more bedrooms with their own bathrooms than all other properties in our price range. Of our 5 bedrooms, three of them have en suite bathrooms & 2 share a connecting bathroom. This makes it really easy for many people to get ready at the same time and offers convenience and privacy. Our house is ALWAYS sunny. We have ample sky-lights which have heat and glare shields. The beautiful swimming pool is heated and has attractive pavers. We are the third property in from the gulf beach on one side and the third in from the bay on the other. The driveway gate can be closed for privacy and most of the property is fenced. We are constantly told the pictures don't do us justice. We enjoy having many returnees to Blue Heaven year after year.
