Our Sun & Moon House, a 3 br/3 bath Key West inspired home on popular Wightman Lane, is only a two to three minute walk down the sandy lane to the beach -- rated the most romantic for its calm, warm water, tropical atmosphere, and gorgeous sunsets. The restaurants in the village are just as close.
The decor is always kept updated and amenities reflect a finished, comfortable home, rather than a rental unit. The new kitchen is fully equipped for any entertaining needs. Dining choices include a dining room or the screened, furnished lanai by the newly re-finished swimming pool and paver stone covered deck, or even the furnished sun & moon deck on the top level.
The glass sided living room offers a panoramic view of the swimming pool and the tropical foliage. The entertainment center has a 42' HDTV, DVD, and an Onkyo stereo receiver with i-Pod docking, 6-disc CD changer and Infinity speakers. A large collection of CDs are provided. Wireless Internet and free long distace calling in the 48 states. Beach towels, chairs, umbrellas, ice coolers and handy beach cart make for an easy beach day.
- NOTE! We're heavily booked this season. If our calendar shows your date preference is already reserved, send us a request, and with a Florida Realtor's license, we'll respond with available Captiva homes we know and trust at no extra cost to you.
The master bedroom on the second floor has a king-size bed, its own full bath, and 32" HDTV. The "sun & moon" deck is accessible from this room as well as the hallway.
The second floor guest bedroom has two twin beds, HDTV/DVD, Receiver and CD player, and its own bath in the room. Children love this spacious and well decorated room, and the twin beds can be placed together (with advance notice) and made up as a King size bed for a couple.
The first floor guest room, separated from the main living area for privacy, has a full bath, desk workspace, and 32" wall mounted HDTV. It's perfect for another couple, the grandparents, or a nanny for the children.
Naturally, all linens are provided and you'll find everything in perfect, move-in condition. Beach towels, lounge chairs, and umbrellas are provided for the beach. Our pool lanai is totally furnished and a Weber gas grill is ready for a cookout.
Biking is wonderful on Captiva and Sanibel Island and our men's and ladies' aluminum 7-speed beach cruiser bicycles are provided for your exclusive use.
Even more information: Bikes for younger children or trailers for our bikes can be rented and delivered to your door. The best restaurants in Captiva's village are no more than a two to three minute walk away. Golfing on two 18-hole courses, The Dunes and Beachview, are just 20 minutes away on nearby Sanibel Island. Our Guest Guide, found in the living room, lists many of our personal recommendations to get your vacation started quickly.
This home is not managed by a management company, but by us, the owners. We personally supervise and assist our cleaning staff each Saturday. As the last to walk out the door prior to your arrival, we can assure you the Sun & Moon is one of the most immaculate and best prepared homes on Captiva, both inside and outside.
We personally own and maintain the Sun & Moon and our smaller house, the Mermaid. You are assured of a perfectly prepared house, both inside and out, as we're the last to leave the house before you arrive.

Southwest Florida is the surrounding area serviced by Ft Myers' Southwest Regional International Airport (RSW). One of the 'Crown Jewels' of this area is Captiva Island, just a 35 mile, very pleasant drive from RSW. Captiva Island is described by some as Hawaii without volcanos, or Aruba without the wind. However you relate to it, it's not like a typical idea of Florida. We locals just think of it as a laid back, Carribean style tropical island on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico.
Year Purchased: 2002
About the owner: We live in the area and personally maintain our two beach vacation rental homes, the Sun & Moon and the smaller 2 bedroom Mermaid House (perhaps the most popular renmtal house on Captiva), to provide maximum attention to detail. We don't leave the house for a management company as most owners do. We really think our homes are the two best prepared on the island, regardless of rental cost!
In addition to being part of the preparation team each Saturday, Larry is also a Licensed Florida Realtor.
Why the Owner Chose Captiva Island: Captiva is a boutique type Island, often compared to Aruba without the wind, or Hawaii without the volcanos. Captiva is a tropical Carribbean style island and looks nothing like the rest of Florida. The Sun & Moon is centrally located in the village center on the beach side of the village. There are no streets to cross between our house and the beach.
The Unique Benefits at this House: For some it's the immaculate preparation of the house and pool, for others it's the style of furniture always kept fresh, perhaps the great audio system with i-Pod docking and poolside speakers, or perhaps the HD TV in the living room and LCD tv in each bedroom. Some just love the unique beach cart we assembled with special oversize balloon tires. It's easy to haul all our beach chairs, umbrella and ice cooler to the beach with this handy cart. Let's not forget the 7-speed aluminum bicycles we also provide. And our large top floor furnished sun & moon deck is always well used for a great tan or star gazing on a clear Captiva night..
