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! The kitchen has upgraded appliances, marble countertops, a Keurig single-serve premium coffee brewer and breakfast bar with premium seating. It also features a walk-in spacious room for laundry and pantry items.
The bright, open floor plan on the main level features beautiful Saltillo tile floors, all new furnishings in the living and dining areas--all of which open up to an expansive outdoor, screened-in lanai.
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 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.

Spring Break Vacation in Captiva
We had a lovely time at Sunset Captiva 17. The location was great, close to the pool, grills and beach. The house was very clean and updated, with a beautiful screen porch that we thoroughly enjoyed. We will definitely choose this property again should we visit!
Very nice, but unfortunately had same concerns as earlier reviewer...
This is a lovely home in a lovely, quiet, family-oriented community. We would have had no concerns and given this home an easy 5-star rating; however, we were dismayed to find that the dishwasher was (still) broken. (For some guests, this might not be a big deal, but with a family of 6, we stay at Sunset Captiva specifically so that we have the option of preparing meals at home, and over many years, we have never faced a maintenance issue at any of the other homes we have rented). We own a home, have frequent visitors, and understand and are sympathetic to the fact that things can go wrong unexpectedly. However, this was an issue that was reported by at least one earlier reviewer, and was well-known to the property management team. Of course, we did not realize the problem until we went to run the dishwasher; at that point, we had amassed quite a few dishes...and perhaps most unsettling was realizing we had been eating off plates that were perhaps not as clean as we would have liked to imagine...they had either been washed by hand by someone, or in a completely dysfunctional dishwasher. That being said, the maintenance man was honest and lovely to deal with by phone, and the management company gave us a small credit to compensate us for our inconvenience, but the experience did take some of the sparkle out of an otherwise lovely vacation...(Normally, I would not have mentioned this, but since it also seems to be a known issue that is not being addressed, the front door lock also remained finicky/rusty...). I would not recommend against this home by any means, but would advise others to make sure there are no known outstanding maintenance concerns before traveling.
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!
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.
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!
Great location, beautifully decorated, Clean
LOVED SUNSET CAPTIVA #17
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.
Within less than one mile of our home you have everything your heart desires for a beach vacation. Beach-to-bay activities, rentals, shopping, Starbucks, spa, restaurants, ice cream parlor, marinas, dockside fishing/viewing... not to mention miles of pristine Captiva Beach sand!
