About the Property
Well maintained and equipped, this classic Captiva cottage style house sleeps 6
Its private, secluded, 26x14 ft heated and newly re-surfaced pool with paver stone deck is just off the double French doors of the living room. The Mermaid Home may be called a cottage, but this house is as well updated and equipped as a new luxury home.
**** NOTE! We're heavily booked this season. The Mermaid has had but only one single unrented week since January 2013! If our always updated calendar shows your date preference is already reserved, send us a request for alternate suggestions. With a Florida Realtor's license, and extensive knowledge of the Captiva rental inventory, we'll respond with available Captiva homes we know and trust. Perhaps our Sun & Moon, also on this site, is available. ****
Included is a 42' HDTV, a 6 disc CD player with large music selection, Bluetooth connection to our 100 watt Onkyo receiver and Bose inside and Yamaha outside pool speakers. Wireless Internet is in place.
The master bedroom has a King bed with HDTV and i-Pod dock and a master bath with step down shower large enough for two and is equipped with 2 shower heads. The guest bedroom is twin equipped and has an HDTV woth DVD and i-Pod dock. The living room provides a very comfortable Italian leather queen size sleeper sofa, The hall way full bath services the guest room and living room guests.

The adjacent open dining area has a table for 4 and stools at the kitchen bar for 2 more.
7-speed bicycles are included along with a handy beach cart to haul all the beach chairs, umbrellas, cooler, beach toys and beach towels to the beach
The grounds are covered with many varieties of tropical flowering plants, the beach is a short two minute walk and the docks of the bay are even closer. Captiva's charming village center is a five minute walk from the house.
Personally maintained by the owners, this home is one of the very few Captiva rental houses not managed by a management company. We personally supervise and assist our cleaning staff each Saturday. As the last to walk out the door prior to your arrival, we can assure you the Mermaid Home is one of the most immaculate and best prepared homes on Captiva, both inside and outside.

Year Purchased: 1998
About: We have been in the Captiva vacation home rental business since 1998 and personally maintain and manage our properties. The Mermaid House was our first, and we've kept it fresh and always doing something new to please guests every year. We're the last to leave the house before you arrive, so we know it is prepared perfectly for your arrival.
Why Captiva, FL, USA:
This is one of the few remaining classic Captiva cottage style houses offering the charm of 'Olde Florida', but with all the updates and conveniences of newer homes. It is one of the last ground level homes built (1976), as all homes built from 1978 required the living area to be built on pilings requiring stairs to enter. It may have the record for popularity based on rental history, as it has only three unrented weeks since January 2013 - perhaps making it the most popular rental house on Captiva!.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The pool on the same level of the house with no stairs to deal with make entertaining all family members quite easy. Further, the location on a small, quiet street is close to beach, bay, Chapel by the Sea, Captiva Library and the village center with an easy walk to all.
