Captiva Island. “Happy Daze” - beautiful, child-friendly home with a very private, well heated pool. The home is a very short walk to the beach (the island is only about 600 yards wide, at its widest point) and shops and restaurants in the village.
Our single family home has five bedrooms, four with four attached full baths, two with king beds, one with a queen bed, and one with two sets of bunk beds. There is also a fifth bedroom off the kitchen that is appropriate for children; it has a daybed and a fold-out couch. The house comfortably sleeps twelve people.
The property has an elevator and is accessible for those with disabilities, but is not specifically configured for those with disabilities (does not have hand bars in bathrooms, a roll-in shower, etc.) It also has wireless, broadband cable modem access, a laundry room and other amenities.
This is a bright, cheerful and very comfortable home that is a wonderful place to bring your children for a vacation. Good fun for all; lots of board games, children’s videos and TV, ping-pong and pool tables by the pool! Come see the dolphins, manatees and river otters swimming nearby!
The pool is standard size, sloping to about six feet in depth at the deep end. Pool is kept heated to approximately 90 degrees year round to encourage children to swim and play in the pool, have fun and burn off energy! Please call in advance if you would like the pool temperature lowered.

After some chilly evenings, the pool still came up to perfect temperature our entire stay.
For the past 8 years, we have stayed on Captiva Drive and then North Captiva last winter. This was the first time that we stayed in a home in downtown Captiva and it was really a delightful experience. Loved being able to walk to all of the restaurants, and it was great really being a part of a community's sunset. From the wine and cocktail socials on the walk to the beach, to the beach with everyone appreciating the moment, it was great to see everyone come together on one simple thing that happens every day. My father in law visited for 2 and 1/2 weeks, his first time to Florida in 61 years without his wife, and he was able to take morning walks out and about town-I believe the community of Captiva helped heal him and was beautiful to see.
A fantastic home in a wonderful location
Our family of 9 (3 couples, 3 toddlers/infants) had a wonderful week in this comfortable house. It was clean, beds/linens were good and the layout was great for everyone. The place is loaded with books so you won't run out of vacation reads while you're there. The pool area was fantastic and we loved the very warm water - our little ones never got cold. Stock up at Costco in Fort Myers as there's loads of refrigerator space with a spare in the garage and a small one poolside for libations. Restaurants and beach access are all a short walk away. House has a wagon and big cooler to tote back and forth to the beach for sunset happy hour! We were pleased with the service ReMax provided. They responded quickly when the AC quit working on the main level. Only complaint was how meager the supplies were. While the kitchen was well stocked with most utensils, they only leave 2 packs of dishwasher soap, no extra trash bags, etc.. We've rented many different VRBOs and places that provide good supplies go along way in optimizing the way guests maintain the property.
Great house terrific fun. Grandkids were in heaven!
Beautiful property, nicely maintained.
family vacation !!!
This is a beautiful home. Plenty of room, great furniture, comfortable beds. The outdoor pool was wonderful, as was the pool table and ping pong table. Very kid friendly !!! We were able to walk to beach, shopping, and restaurants. We all had a perfect vacation!! We would love to return next year !!!
Could be an awesome house! Two and a half stars
My family and I stayed here for a week. Seven adults. This could be an amazing place, but several things brought down our opinion of it. First, it could have been much cleaner. The bathrooms were quite dirty around the toilets. The baseboards and floors looked like they hadn't been cleaned in a very long time. The patio furniture could have used a cleaning also. A lot of the house just seemed run down, including some of the furniture, while some of the furniture was very nice. The ice maker didn't work. Most of the remotes for the tvs lacked working batteries. The gas grill by the pool was so gross we didn't use it. Many of the closet doors and the sliding doors to a den off the family room didn't work properly.
The pluses were having enough bedrooms for everyone, with their own bathrooms. The house is huge! The pool and hot tub are great. (Once we found the almost hidden, unlabled buttons for the hot tub. A renters manuel explaining such things would be nice.) There are four porches, one of them screened in. There are enough dishes and cooking utensils to run a restaurant! It was fun playing pool under the overhang by the pool. There is also a ping pong table that looked brand new. The beds were all very comfortable. The location is very convenient to the beach and many restaurants.
We did have a great time during our stay, but with some TLC this house could be outstanding! I understand it is priced less than many others, but could be so much better.
This is fair criticism. We hadn't been down to Captiva in a while and things got a bit away from us.
We have gotten back on top of things, cleaned things up and changed rental management companies.
Just give Laurel at ReMax a call and she can talk you through the house, the changes we have made, and even do a FaceTime walk through of the house if it is helpful.
Thanks for reading!
We were so lucky to be able to book this property last minute as the original property we selected got bedbugs. The owner and the property management company were absolutely wonderful and accommodating. We had 3 families with small children and the set up was just perfect. There was enough room for everyone to spread out and the pool was situated in a way that we were safely able to know that the kids couldn't access it on their own. WE WANT TO COME BACK NEXT YEAR!!! It was so lovely and such a beautiful location. THANK YOU A MILLION TIMES OVER TO THE OWNER!!! Thank you!!!
