Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths

Gorgeous, three bedroom home, located in the heart of charming Captiva Island. Recently renovated and beautifully decorated! Many lovely upgrades, such as porcelain tile, plush carpeting, French doors and plantation shutters just to name a few. The home features a spacious, fully equipped kitchen with luxury stainless steel appliances including a side by side refrigerator/freezer with ice and water in the door, ceramic topped range and large over the range microwave. Since this our family's second home, we provide items not usually found in the kitchen of a typical 'rental home'. We provide you with a coffee maker with several packets of high quality Columbian coffee, a plentiful supply of non dairy coffee creamer and two types of sweetener (sugar and splenda) . You will also be glad to know that you won't need to purchase salt or pepper, herbs and spices, foil paper, foil trays, saran wrap or paper towels. Hungry? Use our Panini sandwich maker to prepare a delicious hot sandwich to satisfy the afternoon munchies or use our Belgian waffle maker to prepare fresh waffles in the morning.

We have three new High Definition flat screen televisions, each with internet ready DVD players allowing you to use our NetFlix account to access their inventory of 40,000 movies to instantly stream movies directly to your TV , We also have an additional extensive DVD library, and a large screened patio outside of the living room with a table and four comfortably padded chairs which is the perfect setting to take your morning coffee while surrounded by our lush tropical foliage

The downstairs guest bedroom is appointed with a King Sized luxury bed ( not the typical rock hard bed found in most rentals ) and 500 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets guaranteeing a great nights sleep. Adjacent to the bedroom is a full bathroom stocked with thick, ultra soft towels and a hair dryer. Outside of the bedroom there is a private screened in lanai with a pair of comfortable rocking chairs. The upstairs master bedroom also features luxury King Sized bedding, 500 thread count sheets and a full bathroom with hair dryer included. Step through the french doors onto your private sun/moon deck with our custom made fish shaped lounge chairs. Picture yourself sitting outside the master bedroom at the end of a fun filled day toasting the moon and stars with a glass of wine. The loft outside the Master Bedroom is fitted with two high quality twin beds and a comfortable over-stuffed chair. This is the perfect place for the kids to sleep, close enough for parents to keep an eye on things but still allowing parents the privacy they need to fully enjoy the romantic setting of Captiva. Finally, we've recently added new living room and dining room furniture. The living room includes a queen sized sleeper sofa with a 3 inch memory foam mattress topper to make the sleeper as comfortable as a regular mattress.

On the ground floor, underneath our home you will find two custom made fish inspired bench swings that are delight for young and old to gently swing on. We also have a full size hammock, big enough for two which is an ideal spot to read one of the 100+ books that we provide for you in our library. Our ground floor storage room has everything needed to fully enjoy our world class private beach. There, we keep beach chairs, umbrellas, a very wide selection of every conceivable beach/sand toys, a cooler, beach floats, noodles and finally a cart with which to carry everything to the beach.

Just a two minute walk to our pristine, private beach, via our private boardwalk and only a 30 second walk to the heated swimming pool. Our home is located in the heart of Captiva village. Park your car upon arrival and stroll over to restaurants, shops, rentals and general store. So convenient!

From fine dining and nightlife, to spectacular sunsets and world renowned shelling, Captiva Island will deliver everything you need for a great vacation and more. Recently voted one of the top ten winter vacation destinations in the world! Whether you're looking for an activity filled vacation, or just want to lie on the beach enjoying the scenery, Captiva is an island paradise that you will always want to return to!

About The Owner

We have been vacationing in Captiva as a family for 25 years. Our 3 children who are now 26, 24 and 19 grew up on the beaches of Captiva during our yearly summer vacations. Even as adults they continue to come to our Captiva home although now they like to bring along the latest boyfriend or girlfriend. We are an active family so we love to fish, bike around the Island and body surf when the waves allow. We purchased this home not as a rental but as our family's second home and given that we live in Miami, we are blessed to be able to come to Captiva on an almost monthly basis

The Owner purchased this house in 2003

Why The Owner chose Captiva Island

We have been vacationing there for 25 years and found it to be the perfect place for family vacations. Everything that you need for a relaxing and memorable vacation is there. Once you arrive and park your car in our private driveway, you will no longer need your car until the end of your stay. Literally everything that you need is within easy walking distance making your vacation in our home truly a vacation that you and you and your children will cherish.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Omar,



What a wonderful, blessed visit! Your home was perfect for our family of five, 2 adults and three teenagers. The location of your home was so close to everything and we really appreciated all of the extra little touches. We made many delicious meals in your well equiped kitchen, including ordering fresh fish (and soup) from Andy's seafood truck. Don't miss the HUMONGOUS ice cream scoops, all homemade, from Pinocchio's; we loved your suggestions of The Island Cow ( Wombo Combo, Oh my !), Doc Ford's and The Green Flash. A tip from us: The Bubble Room is fun, but you CAN just go for cake! Thank you again Omar.

Our new favorite place

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our week in this comfortable, well equipped and convenient house so close to the beach. This is our new favorite place to vacation, the location is just perfect. We loved the privacy of the shaded screened porches and deck and when the hummingbirds showed up to feed that just made it perfect. We enjoyed a week of lazing on the beach, beautiful sunsets, watching the wildlife and kayaking in the Ding Darling refuge. Cannot recommend this highly enough, Omar was so good to deal with and his coffee really is excellent!! Stay here you will not be sorry.

Great Island Time

  • 5 of 5

This is our first vacation rental that actually all the listed amenities as advertised. The home is a lovely island getaway that features plenty of family gathering space as well as private alcoves (porches) for any needed quiet time. The location is a great midpoint between the Gulf and the Bay. Several restaurants are within walking distance to experience the delights of fresh seafood and some local entertainment. A walk and the beach to watch the sunset is great therapy for any family or couple.

Could not be happier with our choice

  • 5 of 5

I honestly can't say enough about both the house and Omar, the owner. He truly cares about your happiness while you're at the house, and does everything you can to make sure your stay is as good as it can possibly be. The house has plenty of room, including a big kitchen and a huge living room. There's a big screened porch for hanging out at night plus two other private porches off of each of the large bedrooms. Plus tons of beach towels, beach toys, rafts for the pool, umbrellas, chairs—really, everything you could want or need for a great vacation. The pool is less than a 5-minute walk and then the beach is maybe 3 minutes beyond that. And the beach! We were on Captiva during school vacation week yet the beach was never crowded. Awesome shells to discover and fish to see if you have a mask and snorkel. Plus amazing sunsets while eating dessert! We did a few trips but the best was a half day at Cayo Costa. It's a smooth 1/2 hour boat ride from a marina across the street on the bay side, and then plenty of time on a practically deserted island. It was great!

And then when we got home to the cold northeast, we discovered we had left a favorite, very small toy of our daughter's back at the house on Captiva. We contacted Omar to see if there was any possibility of finding it. He looked right away, found the toy, mailed it, and it arrived safe and sound a few days later. Our 7 year-old daughter was thrilled. We were too! Omar is a great guy, the house is fantastic, the beaches are amazing . . . it was a great vacation!

Best vacation ever!!

  • 5 of 5

We left the frozen North and arrived in what can only be described as paradise. Captiva is a small, tropical Island that has a great laid back vibe. The beach was simply gorgeous, without the crowds that you would expect in such a popular destination. We spent all day on the beach every day and didn't want to leave when Saturday rolled around.

Omar called us Saturday night to welcome us to his home and to give us a quick description of where everthing was in his beautiful home and on the island. The home is a two story home on stilts and from the monent you walk in it just says "beach". Its painted in soft pastels and tastefully decorated with many cute beachy items. It was large enough to comfortably accommodate my entire family, and was very, very clean when we arrived which is a priority for me.

The home had everything that one would expect in a vacation home including fresh linens, bath towels and beach towels. Omar also provides everything for the beach including chairs, umbrellas, cooler, beach toys and floats for the kids and a cart. Everything, including the beach, several restaurants and a small marina is close by so there's no need to drive anywhere unless you want to leave the Island. My entire family voted on this vacation as being our best ever and I am geting ready to reach out to Omar to reserve the same week next year.

Perfect location on a superb island!

  • 4 of 5

We chose Captiva after a near perfect trip to Anna Maria. We wanted a quaint, nature rich, beautiful, relaxing place and Captiva did not disappoint. The house was perfectly located....everything was 200 yards away! Bay/boat rides (I recommend Captiva Cruises) and daily manatee sightings one way, beach the opposite way and restaurants/grocery just north. The pool in the complex was convenient and nicely warm, like bath water. The house was very comfortable. We spent hours in the Florida room and slept soundly at night. Lots of bird activity in the morning which we loved. It was like sitting in a jungle. Omar was great and called as soon as we arrived. The house was clean. I didn't give it 5 stars simply because the house could use a couple decorative/cosmetic updates. Also, I wish there were more games provided (there weren't even cards) and the kitchen was missing some basic spices and dish soap dispenser was not functioning, dryer only worked on one setting....little stuff, stuff that doesn't effect a vacation. May be worth mentioning that the twin bed loft is open to the great room below. My kids are sound sleepers, so didn't effect us, but may sway some families. For the price, location and overall comfort I highly recommend!!!! We would live there if we could.

Top spot on Captiva

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week on Captiva. The house was terrific and very clean and comfortable in every way. Omar is a great host and made us feel right at home. Location is tops and we enjoyed walking to the beach, village shops, marinas, and local eateries; loved the Green Flash for a special birthday. We will be back!
