About the property

Townhome, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)


Our home away from home is ready to welcome you to the best of Captiva. With three bedrooms and three bathrooms, living and dining areas, kitchen and lofted den, Ventura Captiva has been newly remodeled with top-of-the-line accoutrements and a relaxed and soothing atmosphere. Located just two blocks from Captiva Village, this vacation destination is snuggled away in a private enclave yet offers the best of the islands. Leave your troubles and your car keys behind; our wonderful Captiva home is centrally located to all the fun!

We are just a stone’s throw from the Gulf. Enjoy the natural and ungroomed beach and languid pace of island life. Spend the afternoon looking for shells on one of the world’s Top 10 shelling beaches, or watch the sunset with your toes in the sand.

Love to cook? Our kitchen is designed with the “chef” in mind. The cool granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, glass cooktop and drawers full of utensils are just a few of the conveniences you’ll find.

Rather not cook? We are located within walking distance from Captiva Village, with the island’s best and most well known restaurants.

• Hungry for breakfast? RC Otters will get your tummy filled.

• Enjoy the wacky décor and activities to keep kids entertained at the Bubble Room.

• A Captiva sunset is one of the world’s best. Watch for the “green flash” from the famous oceanfront Mucky Duck Restaurant.

• Looking for the night life? Key Lime Bistro has outside entertainment and plenty of hang-out time.

Have a passion to fish? Our private pier on Pine Island Sound puts you within casting range of species such redfish, snook, snapper and sea trout. Our bay is the home of several manatees and otters who make occasional guest appearances. For those lucky boat owners, our private boat slip will accommodate your vessel up to 40 feet.

“Get your motor running” with a boat rental from Jensen’s Twin Palms…just a short walk away! The friendly Jensen brothers can set also you up with what you need for fishing.

Ready to cruise? McCarthy’s Marina is ready for cruisin’. This is the home of Lady Chadwick, which departs for daily runs to Cabbage Key (don’t forget to tape your dollar bill to the wall). Canoe and kayak rentals are also available. New Moon Sailing also offers lunch, dinner and sunset charters.

If you’d rather veg-out by the pool, this is your place! We warm our pool to 86 degrees to keep you happy. Look around to see the neighborhood osprey family, the local ibis clan and our mascot, “Buddy” the blue heron.

Our Captiva home is just waiting to welcome you!

We meet at Ventura Captiva with our family

  • 4 of 5

This was our 2nd stay at V. Cap. It was wonderful as usual. Kitchen is amazingly equipped and it's so close to the bay and the beach. Our only glitch this year was the sofa bed in the loft. We count on it for a sleeping location and the support for the matress was completely broken. We made do, but hope it will be fixed if we stay again next year. Everything else was just great!

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Ventura Captiva! The house is lovely and worked very well for our group. It was a quiet restful community with many friendly neighbors with views of the bay and just a very short walk to the beach. What a lovely time!

another great captiva vacation

  • 4 of 5

Captiva is great place and Ventura is great spot convenient for Captiva Village, local marinas the beach. It has also has a nice pool and dock area. Unit 3A is pretty good, it's well furnished and very comfortable. The owner was great to deal with I was making the booking and Royal Shell Vacations late check-in and early check-out service worked seamlessly. A couple of things to improve on though, the power outlet sockets either side of the stove are not working and likewise on the small counter-top. There were no beach towels that we could identify so we bought some and left them there. But these were minor inconveniences. We would go back to Ventura 3A and hope to do so.

Wonderful stay in beautiful Captive....2 weeks of near perfect weather after a cold New England winter. Home and accommodations were perfect, right on the sound and across the street from the gulf...beautiful sunrises and sunsets:). Can't wait to go back again!
