About Van Bonaros

Van and Helen live in Westchester County, NY with their two children and their pets. They love to travel and look forward to spending as much time as possible on Captiva Island where they can relax and unwind.

Van Bonaros purchased this condo in 2011

Why Van Bonaros chose Captiva

Captiva is a destination unlike no other. You are on a lush tropical island that is low key and laid back. The beaches are beautiful and unspoiled. The nearby village is quaint with shopping and al fresco dining with nightly entertainment.

What makes this condo unique

You are steps away to the beach and the village and any outdoor adventures that suit your mood. While at the beach, enjoy complimentary lounge chairs and umbrellas. Cocktails and light meals are available for purchase. You are sure to have a dolphin sighting at the beach and be sure to check out the manatee at the marina.

Cozy and Comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent four nights here January 2018. The condo was clean and had everything we needed. The bed was very comfortable! The view overlooks the marina which has trees all around it. Great place to watch all sorts of birds come in for the night. It was a five minute walk to a beautiful beach with great shells. We really enjoyed ourselves and are hoping to go back to the same condo next year. It is a 10 minute walk to Captiva Town Center where there are some restaurants. The J. N. "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge is less than 15 minutes away by car. I would highly recommend this condo and area to have a vacation.

Beautiful, clean condo - would definitely return

  • 4 of 5

I would give this unit a 4.8, but that wasn't an option! The most important thing to us in choosing a rental unit is cleanliness, location to the beach, and up-to-date furnishings. This unit was excellent in all 3. The cleanliness was unlike any rental, resort or hotel I have ever stayed in. And we are very picky! The décor was perfect - beach-themed, but not tacky. The location to the beach was either a 4 minute walk or a 2-minute bike ride. The kitchen had everything we needed and was stocked with dishes, utensils and plenty of pots/pans to prepare meals of any size. The lanai was a relaxing spot to drink morning coffee and overlook the pool and marina. There were plenty of towels, blankets, beach towels, 2 beach chairs, 2 beach mats, and umbrella. There were only 2 of us - it might be a little tight with 4, and there isn't a lot of closest space for 2, let alone 4, but with kids this would be less of a problem. The second guest bathroom was a huge plus even with 2 of us.

The only 2 negative areas that were only slightly disappointing was that it was advertised with a washer and dryer. I don't use VRBO often, but didn't realize this didn't necessarily mean IN the unit. There was a community washer and dryer (2 each) in the building with $2 per load each for washer and dryer. Fortunately we ended up having enough clothes and didn't need to use. Also, either the reception for the TV was bad or there wasn't HDTV as the picture quality was not very clear in both the bedroom and the family room. It was "bowl" weekend and did end up watching a lot of football when we were in.

This unit is in the South Seas Plantation Resort, but other than Doc Ford's Rum Bar, you do not have access to any of the facilities, trolleys, restaurants or shops. But this was not a problem at all for us. Just outside the gate were plenty of great restaurant options. We didn't move our car for 4 days. We ate at Doc Ford's, Key Lime Bistro, The Bubble Room, and the Captiva House for New Years Eve. All are highly recommended. It's best if you can get groceries before you get onto Sanibel. Jerry's is about 10 miles away and has a full selection, however, the prices are high. There are two small grocery stores within a very short walk, but these are more for last minute necessities as their prices are high as well. YOLO rents bikes very reasonably - $12 per day plus $3 each day thereafter. We kept the bikes for the full 4 days and used them quite often.

mostly nice

  • 3 of 5

a lovely condo within a larger resort. The screened in deck faces the harbor and the pool and is a short walk to the beach. the condo itself is well appointed with new appliances . the biggest drawbacks were lack of closet space, sub-par bedding, and reliance on the resort's wifi, which is unsecured and thus vulnerable to hacking.

Captivated in Captiva

  • 5 of 5

Comfy , cozy just like being home. The unit had beautiful decor & was everything we could have hoped for in a vacation rental. The owners have gone out of their way to make their guests want to be repeat visitors.

Gorgeous, comfy, close to everything in Captiva!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! So comfortable, decor was lovely and befitting the Captiva surroundings. It was nice being so close to the places we are always around whenever we stay in Captiva, e.g, Mucky Duck, Doc Fords. Hope to be back again next year!

Quiet, nicely appointed, good location to relax

  • 4 of 5

Property is well appointed throughout. Great enclosed outdoor space to have coffee in the morning overlooking the marina and pool with a view of the inner coastal waters. Comfy bed. Very good bathroom and shower facilities. Facility has an elevator.

Kitchen missing the coffee strainer, quickly solved via paper filters. Beach chairs are getting a bit long in the tooth and the attached umbrella did not work. Nice addition would be a small cooler to take to the beach. Lots of good restaurants in the area, recommend the Mad Hatter and the Bistro for a fun Friday night. Great location to relax.
