Guestbook comments from the owner

I have been meaning to write you about your property in Captiva Island. It has been since June that I have not sent you this letter. We had the most remarkable time on the island and your home. The home felt like home. We had our 3 daughters, 2 son-in-laws, and 4 grandchildren for a week in paradise. You were extremely helpful in telling us about the area. Your home had more amenities than I had expected. From the beach towels to the gas grill nothing was missing. The short walk to the beach turned into an adventure every day with the grandchildren. When they got tired at the beach from playing in the sand or snorkeling it was lunch time.l After lunch it was either nap time or pool time. I thought that the little ones would be all wrinkled up from all the water time. Everybody had their own space to live in. Not once did I hear I'm bored there is nothing to do. The little ones loved the pool and the float things that were there. We had rented a 15 passenger van and brought most of our food from the mainland. The van sat in the driveway most of the week. No need to drive when the restaurants and little store are only 1-2 blocks away. We had a GREAT meal everyday. Our son-in-law asked when we could come back to the island and this house again. He actually relaxed. You can use me for a reference any time. I look forward to coming back to the island life soon.

My favorite VRBO rental

  • 5 of 5

This is my favorite home that I have rented so far on VRBO. We went with 10 people ages 1-70 and everyone had a good time. We had plenty of towels, beach chairs, etc. Kitchen is well stocked. Super clean. Plenty of space to spread out. Beach is very close and convenient and my kids loved the pool. Don is a great owner who was easy to reach with great tips about the area, plus, he has a local professional management company if things come up. This house will exceed your expectations.

Property is beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Aviva Captiva. The house was perfect. Plenty of room for all of us and just a short walk to the beach. Kitchen had everything we needed as we love to cook. Coffee in the mornings on the roof top was so lovely. The owner of the house was amazing and accommodating. Whatever we needed was done! Truly a fantastic vacation in a great house!

Heaven on Earth!

  • 5 of 5

Our favorite vacation spot that we always count on each year! Perfectly located to the beach, the best restaurants/bars on the island, and the marinas. Come as you are, everything you need is there- including the blender for beach drinks and the cooler! The bedrooms are cozy and welcoming just like you are at your own house. We never have a long enough stay here- absolutely LOVE it!!!

We had rented the home to celebrate a birthday and had family staying with us from their 20's-70's. Everyone was very impressed with the home. Owner and property manager were both wonderful to work with and made everything run smoothly for us and our guests throughout the week. Location was superb for all with very comfortable walking distance to everything. The previous reviews listed are all spot on regarding amenities and the home. The only "challenge" was the stress of trying to fit in all there was to enjoy with the home and Captiva in such a short time! We were lucky enough to have very nice weather but even if we hadn't the home had plenty to of things to do and places to relax inside or on the screeened lanai. I personally loved the rooftop deck so quiet and peaceful among the treetops and beautiful view of the bay. Some in our party have never been to Florida at all before and this left quite the impression on them and are ready to return!

Great vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time on our first trip to Captiva. The house was perfect for our family of four generations! The elevator was a necessity for my 85 year old father and the pool was a huge hit with my grandchildren. The location was perfect for walking into town and a very short walk to the beach. We appreciated all the beach towels, umbrellas, ice chest and cart. I would recommend this home to anyone visiting Captiva.

A wonderful getaway with everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at Aviva Captiva! First the location was great, just a short walk to the beach and one block from a great selection of restaurants, shopping, etc! The house was spacious and updated. We had EVERYTHING we needed! Plenty of towels, beach toys, 2 beach carts and two beach umbrellas. It made the whole vacation that much better as we had nothing to worry about. The owner was super nice and very accommodating. We will be staying at Aviva Captiva again, without a doubt!

The island of Captiva was absolutely charming and beautiful. It was a quaint getaway from the hustle and bustle of the more commercialed parts of Florida.
