Its private, secluded, 26x14 ft heated and newly re-surfaced pool with paver stone deck is just off the double French doors of the living room. The Mermaid Home may be called a cottage, but this house is as well updated and equipped as a new luxury home.

With a Florida Realtor's license, and extensive knowledge of the Captiva rental inventory, we'll respond with available Captiva homes we know and trust.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1998

                      About the owner: We have been in the Captiva vacation home rental business since 1998 and personally maintain and manage our properties. The Mermaid House was our first, and we've kept it fresh and always doing something new to please guests every year. We're the last to leave the house before you arrive, so we know it is prepared perfectly for your arrival.

                      Why the Owner Chose Captiva Island:
                      This is one of the few remaining classic Captiva cottage style houses offering the charm of 'Olde Florida', but with all the updates and conveniences of newer homes. It is one of the last ground level homes built (1976), as all homes built from 1978 required the living area to be built on pilings requiring stairs to enter..

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The pool on the same level of the house with no stairs to deal with make entertaining all family members quite easy. Further, the location on a small, quiet street is close to beach, bay, Chapel by the Sea, Captiva Library and the village center with an easy walk to all.
