"Great vacation spot. We had babies and grandparents and it was wonderful being across from tennis courts, pool and an easy walk to the beach. The screened in porch was fantastic too. The master bed could use an upgrade, along with dining room chairs. Easy to mail items in advance ad pre-order groceries. I would recommend this property."

"We keep coming back to Bob's house year after year for the same reason, it's the perfect spot for a family vacation. The photos are spot on, a true depiction of what you get when you stay here. The house is conveniently located near several restaurants and a small convenience type store so there's really no need to drive any where once you settle in. The pool is minutes away and very kid friendly. The gorgeous beach is never crowded and only a short walk from the pool. There are tennis courts available on the property that are well maintained. The grilling/picnic areas are spotless as well. We have seen dolphins, manatees and a huge assortment of birds ranging from plovers to osprey. Sunset Captiva is a place where time slows down, memories are made and you'll want to return to year after year. We do."

"My family and in-laws rented Villa Elena for the week at the end of April. We were extremely pleased with the house. Everything we needed (except food) was already there including a Keurig and beach towels. The house is so nicely laid out. The pool and back courtyard is where we spent most of our time. The house is a short walk from the beach. And there is a great wheeled cart that you can pull to the beach with all the beach supplies and toys. Cindy was so great prior to arrival in providing us with suggestions on where to eat and what to do. She even recommended a great captain to take us deep sea fishing that was a short walk down the main road. I would highly recommend Villa Elena to anyone looking to visit Captiva as it was one of our favorite places that we have ever rented."

"We were celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary and were looking for a place to bring the whole family. What a place to celebrate. The 6 adults and 4 children, ages 9,6, and 18 month old twins, had a wonderful time. The four spacious bedrooms allowed us all to have our own space with each having its own bathroom. The entire house was very spacious, updated and room for all of us. The large kitchen had everything needed to prepare meals, if we chose to do so. When bringing in the luggage, groceries, coolers etc. the elevator was a plus. It serviced all three floors. The game room was a place to hang out in the evenings to play foosball and shuffle board. We took the golf cart option and what fun the kids had riding around the village in it. It was very helpful when needing to run to the store. We took it to the restaurants, beach and just looking around. A beach wagon with umbrellas and a large supply of beach towels was also provided. Being right there in the heart of the village was the perfect location. So many great restaurants to choose from, we tried a different one every evening. And all were superb. The best thing for us, expecially the kids, was the pool. A morning dip, a swim after the beach and an evening dip was enjoyed by all. Whether sitting in the hot tub, jumping in again and again and again, they made me tired, to playing water games, we spent many hours in the pool. We had a wonderful anniversary with our kids and grandkids and Lazy Palm helped to make it happen. The realty company was available to answer questions and when we called to say we could not find the golf cart key, they responded immediately and brought us a key. Thank You Lazy Palm for a wonderful vacation. Hope to make a return trip some day."
