The property is located a few steps from the deep water dock, allowing incredible access for boaters and anglers alike. This area is home to numerous fishing tournaments attracting anglers of all kinds. The white sand beach is one of the top beaches for seashelling in the world and is 239 steps from your door! Sanibel-Captiva Islands are very eco conscious and opportunities abound to explore this magnificent area.

Photo Show Available By Email : Stay where the fish are. Deep sea, back bay or off the dock, the fishing is world class. Boat, equipment, and guides available on the island. Rare Captiva condo has it all! Live the 'Island Life.' This small complex on a small island, consists of 21 units situated between the beach and the Great Caloosa Blueway, on the southern end of an island chain that stretches from Tampa to the Ten Thousand Islands. The decor is bright and roomy. Pocketing sliders open with an amazing sunrise view of Buck Key Preserve and Pine Island Sound. Deep Water Docks are 39 steps from Captiva Sunrise and can be rented from the condominium association (Call / email for details). Great restaurants amd 2 groceries are nearby. The water of the Gulf of Mexico is a clear emerald green with gentle waves washing thousands of seashells onto the prisitne, white beach. Surrounded by acres of water and land preserve, the wildlife activity is constant. Be sure to bring your camera when you visit Captiva Sunrise!

Nearby Amenities: There is one intersection on Captiva and nearly everything you will want is between you and Andy Rosse Lane. Companies on Captiva Island are available for kayaks, waverunners, boats, bait etc. This property is located between South Seas Resort and Tween Waters Inn and excellent restaurants within walking distance. It is actually shorter to walk along the beach and catch the sunset to dinner. Have a sunset dinner or drinks at the Mucky Duck. A small grocery carries a reasonable selection. Golf is available at nearby resorts and communities.

The perfect fishing camp that begs coming back!: Captiva Sunrise is located on Roosevelt Channel opening out to Pine Island Sound near Tween Waters Inn (host of numerous fishing tournaments). Deep water dockage is available for an additional fee. Your boat is visible from nearly every room and only a short walk past one building to yours. Wake up and head out! After a great day, return to the peace and solitude of Captiva Sunrise. Non-anglers will be busy with all of the other things that there are to enjoy on Sanibel-Captiva Islands. The kitchen and the grill are well equipped to help you enjoy your catch. Nearby Islands accessible by boat include North Captiva Island, Cayo Costa State Park, Cabbage Key, Useppa Island, Pine Island and Gasparilla Island. You will drive by J. Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge on Sanibel Island. It is one of many places to enjoy the bountiful wildlife that inhabits or visits the coast. Drive, bike, walk, kayak and take lots of pictures. If you rent or bring a boat, the nearby islands are a treasure.

Car: Recommended

Captiva Island is located in a string of islands along the southwest coast of Florida. It is an easy drive from the airport. Many of the nearby islands have no vehicles or electric vehicles only on seashell roads (golf carts). Useppa Island is a private island with a fabulous 'pink path' along a row of cottages lined with orchids and bromeliads among incredible shade trees. Cayo Costa is a state park with very few private homes and a long, pristine white/seashell beach. Both are only accessible by boat. Edison-Ford Winter Estates, Naples, Bonita Springs, Ft Myers downtown festivals, Cape Coral Art Show, Everblades Hockey, Red Sox or Twins Spring games are among the things you may want to take in during your stay. Take a 'day trip' to explore one of the last settled parts of the US and the numerous entertainment opportunities in the area. Everglades National Pk, Ten Thousand Islands, Big Cypress Swamp, etc. We can help you see all of these and more!

Other Activities: seashelling, parasailing, jet skiing, photography, birdwatching, kayaking, Ding Darling National Park


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: My husband I moved here in January 1995 and have never thought of leaving. We are originally Kentuckians and still avid UK fans but we also love the outdoors. The beauty of SW Florida and weather that permits enjoying it are the perfect match for us.

Why the Owner Chose Captiva Island:
My husband and I like to fish and enjoy the local wildlife and this was the perfect place to do it all. We live on a canal in Fort Myers and can bring the boat and a car. My husband drives the boat from dock to dock and I bring the car. It has all the comforts of home and then some in our backyard.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We can be on any of the many islands in Lee County within 30 minutes by boat. My favorite is Cayo Costa State Park, because it can only be gotten to by boat, it is pristine. We also have a membership to Useppa Island Club and can share with our guests with a phone call. The best food and atmosphere. The best is being in the center of where we love to fish! We also love to Kayak around Buck Key and stop by Tween Waters for refreshments on the way home. The best of the beach and the bay!
