A gas grill located on the porch deck is available for grilling steaks or your own catch of fish from the Gulf.
Your vacation home and pool area are surrounded by colorful tropical Palm trees, flowering shrubs and even a Key Lime tree. The Gulf beach with some of the best shelling in the world and spectacular sunsets is a two minute walk to the West.
A short walk to the East will bring you to a marina on the bay side of the island where you can rent a boat or just watch the manatees lounging around the docks.
Boat and jet ski rentals are available at the beach as is parasailing. Two 18 hole golf courses, The Dunes and Beachview are 20 minutes away on Sanibel Island. The Captiva Library is right next door and has books, CDs, videos and computers available to guests.
What we like about Captiva is what you wont find there, like high rise condos/hotels, fast-food restaurants and busy shopping centers. It's just an unspoiled tropical island where you can relax and get away from it all.

Captiva Island, located North of its sister island Sanibel and across the causeway bridge from Ft. Meyers, has an international reputation as a year around vacation destination. For 365 days a year vacationers can enjoy swimming and sunbathing at the Gulf beach just two doors away, or in our pool, heated to a comfortable 85 degrees. Both islands are world famous sanctuary islands, noted for their abundance of seashells, miles of natural undisturbed beaches, fascinating bird life and beautiful subtropical foliage. Add the intrigue of pirate legends, conquistadors, a unique Carribean atmosphere, and a secret getaway for celebrities and you can see why Captiva Island is a world class vacation destination. Best of all Millertime Villa is located in the heart of Captiva Village, close to everything fun!
