Captiva Island house description

Baybarlyn is a charming Olde Captiva-style home. Built in 1953, this 3,000-square-foot house has been gently altered to allow for modern amenities while preserving a timeless, quaint air. It's open floor plan is great for entertaining. This tropical haven offers 4 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms. It is set on over an acre of natural landscaping for privacy and enjoyment. Chefs will enjoy the fully equipped kitchen and gas BBQ grill. Other amenities include a washer and dryer, 5 TVs, 2 DVD players, 2 stereos with iPod docks, and high-speed wireless internet throughout the home. An enclosed porch adjoining the master bedroom provides a wonderful view of the pool and surrounding foliage.


Right across the street is the home's private beach, a lovely place to relax and read or play in the surf and sand. Captiva features world-class shelling, so you'll be sure to find a few treasures to take home with you. As the day melts into the night enjoy our stunning sunsets.

The pool is large, 32-by-16-feet, heated and naturally landscaped. It's shallow wading ledge is roomy and perfect for little kids to play and splash around. The pool gently slopes to a depth of six feet, with ledges on the side for sitting and relaxing. There are two outdoor showers, great for washing the sand off before entering the home. Baybarlyn is the perfect place for gatherings both large and small.

Stargazing is second to none on Captiva Island. Its distance from the mainland keeps the light and noise pollution to a minimum, allowing the stars to dominate the night sky and the sea breeze to be the only sound heard for miles. Once the sun has set, tiny, bioluminescent organisms can be seen as you swim in the glassy water. These two features alone merit at least one nighttime excursion to the beach. If you desire a night in, there are large screen TV's, Xbox, a game closet, and access to Wi-Fi throughout the house.

If you're looking for fun island excursions there are many options within easy walking and/or biking distance. Nearby 'Tween Waters Inn hosts crab racing on Mondays and Thursdays. Local art galleries such as Jungle Drums display the works of island and mainland artists and craftsmen. The island has several marinas where you can rent a boat and cruise around the islands and up the Inter-Coastal Waterway. Bring your own boat and dock it at our shared dock in the back bay. This area is know as a haven for sport fishing. If you enjoy kayaking, you can rent one from various locations on both Captiva and Sanibel. Spend the day exploring the numerous bays and mangrove trails, such as the newly reopened Buck Key.
Restaurants such as The Mucky Duck, The Green Flash, and Key Lime Bistro ensure that a visitors with a desire for delicious food will not be disappointed. For dessert, pick up a giant slice of cake or pie from The Bubble Room, a quirky, 1930s-themed restaurant near the heart of the town. During the winter, you have the privilege of being able to attend serviced at the Chapel by the Sea. A charming one-room schoolhouse-turned-chapel.
Sanibel Island has Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge and Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (C.R.O.W.). These are good places for learning more about the islands and local wildlife. Ding Darling has a beautiful wildlife drive, several walking paths and is known for birdwatching. Tarpon Bay Marina and Wildlife, affiliated with Ding Darling, has a sea animal touch tank and gives educational boat tours of the protected bay area lead by Marine Biologists. C.R.O.W. also features many educational programs.

Whether you are searching for a relaxing, warm getaway during the winter or a fun-filled family vacation in the summer, Baybarlyn with it's enchanting tropical charm will delight you.
