Other amenities include a boardwalk to the beach, nature walk to Chapel By The Sea and the Captiva Public Library beyond, and covered parking.

The interior and exterior of Sunset Captiva #17 is completely remodeled, all new furniture and paint. It features gorgeous French chic decor. That is why we have named it Amore Cheri!

It also features a walk-in spacious room for laundry and pantry items.

The screened-in lanai has plenty of comfortable seating, a dining table, and even a flat-screen TV! Back steps from the lanai lead to a private path to the pool and beach boardwalk.

There are two suites on the upper level: the master suite with king-sized bed, and the guest suite with two twin beds. Both suites have private access to the upper-level sundeck that spans the width of the house and is furnished with reclining and lay-flat chaises. The master suite has a beautifully tiled shower with tub and spacious dressing area. The guest suite with twin beds has a large step-in tiled shower and all new lighting and built-in storage areas. Also upstairs is a brand new bunk bed in the loft area perfect for two children.

Under the house on the ground level you will find an outdoor shower, beautiful landscaping and all the beach chairs and toys you will need for your luxurious and relaxing stay at Amore Cheri!

About Sheryl Young

We are a family from the Midwest area of the United States. Through a friend of ours, we found Captiva Island many years ago and have been escaping to this home-away-from-home as often as possible! It is our family's favorite spot and will be for years to come.

Sheryl Young purchased this house in 2013

Why Sheryl Young chose Sunset Captiva

We choose this property for its location -- we have stayed in homes all over the island but absolutely love Sunset Captiva. It is by far the most convenient and well-maintained area of the island. From our home you can take just steps to the pool, tennis courts, lit boardwalk to the beach, across the street to the dock or marina for manatee watching and fishing, restaurants, live music and so much more. We picked this home because of its beautiful decor and amenities.

This is the second time we've stayed at 17 Sunset Captiva. The house is beautifully and comfortable furnished, well-equipped and a perfect beach get-away. We will be back!

Beautiful and peaceful!

  • 4 of 5

I don't really want to encourage people to come here because then it will be harder for me to rent next year, and I love this place!!! I've been to Captiva many times, and it's one of my favorite place on earth. Very peaceful and low key, but good restaurant options nearby. This is my first stay at Sunset Captiva, which is very centrally located, walking distance to everything. Number 17 is very nice, very well decorated, comfortable king bed (which can be hard to find in a rental), big lanai, nice pool a one minute walk, good beach access. The only negatives were the dishwasher being dead when I arrived and the management company's ineptitude in handling it (they never fixed it and tried to tell me I didn't know how to use a dishwasher and that they shouldn't put such "complicated" dishwashers in units) but the owner was very responsive and apologetic. Also, you had to practically remove skin on your fingers trying to get the key in and out of the door because the lock was so sticky/rusty, which I never ended up calling about because I did not want to have another conversation with the sexist maintenance man. But everything is well kept otherwise and I wouldn't anticipate problems. I will say though, it says it sleeps 6, but the last two beds are bunks in a hall by the stairs, which seems scary and unsafe for anyone under 10--or drunk adults! If you have two kids, the room with twin beds is great. Otherwise, I would come here again in a heartbeat and probably will. Not a good place to stay if stairs give you trouble since the house is on the second floor, but it seems like being on stilts is pretty common in the area.

Lovely home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this lovely home. The pictures do not do justice to the elegance of the furnishings. The beds were very comfortable so we were able to get some much needed rest. We had a problem with the disposal and it was promptly fixed. We’ve booked dozens of homes through Home Away but this was the first time with a realty company. They were a pleasure to work with and very responsive. We will be back!

The Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

Family vacation, girls' week at the beach, getaway with friends: this is your place! Furnishings are refined, beachy, colorful, comfortable. There is an abundance of original artwork, much of it from local artists. The kitchen is well-stocked for meal-prep with convenient dining indoors and out. Comfortable beds, nice linens, and roomy bathrooms round out the private spaces. The lanai and upper deck are spacious and relaxing, and the home is arranged for gathering while providing spaces for some alone-time. Take a 2-minute walk to the clean pool, pool house, and tennis courts, or walk another minute along the boardwalk to the beach. The Beach! Beautiful white sand, shelling, relaxing, body-surfing, bird-watching, sunset-viewing beach! There is a huge variety of restaurants with live music within walking distance, as well as a small grocery/liquor store, boutiques, spas, boat rentals, fishing excursions, manatee watching.... This home is one of our favorites--we'll definitely be back!

Great location, beautifully decorated, Clean

  • 5 of 5


My favorite place to vacation! I have been going to Captiva for several years and by far this is the best place I have stayed. The location is

perfect and conveniently located next to the pool, tennis courts, and a short easy walk to the beach, just as advertised. The home is beautifully decorated with high end furnishings so I feel just a little spoiled.. All bedrooms have the most comfortable beds for a rental I have ever stayed at. Which for me is one of the most important parts of my vacation…Good sleeping. The outdoor deck seating is so relaxing and the furniture very comfortable. Even a t.v. on the deck. A big plus is everything you need for the beach is also supplied. Beach chairs, umbrella, kid toys, beach towels, and a wagon to haul it all in. I loved the wonderful outdoor shower with warm water to wash all the sand off before you go inside.

Also located a short walk form all the great restaurants. I will be going back for as long as I can. Thank you to the owners for sharing your home.

Extremely nice; would return!

  • 4 of 5

Everything was great about this house and we would come back for sure. The owner answered all of my questions quickly beforehand and when we were given the wrong house keys she answered my phone call on a Saturday night to figure things out ASAP. There is a wagon and beach chairs, which makes things easier on families, already at the house. Three things kept it from a five star rating though. The kitchen faucet needs to be replaced badly and that's used frequently when cooking for a family. The tub in the master bath shower drained slowly and left standing water while you showered, and the last one the homeowner can't help outright. The entire week Sunset Captiva had brush removal happening right around the unit so all you heard from 7:00 am on were chainsaws and an industrial chipper. That put a damper on being on the beautiful screened in porch. However, are these deal breakers? Absolutely not! They can be fixed and probably will :) I've been in many units in Sunset Captiva and this one is up to date, close to the pool and beach, and makes for a wonderful family vacation! We highly recommend it and have already told other families about this unit!
