About the property

6 Bedrooms, 5.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 14

Welcome to our beautiful home, the SunDancer. Located on the quiet beaches of Captiva’s gulf coast. Our home is the perfect place for a large family vacation, corporate retreat, or romantic getaway. (Please note that we do not allow weddings or wedding receptions.) Full ocean views, so close you can feel the breeze off the changing tide.

Six bedrooms, 5.5 baths; sleeping 12 in beds and 14 in total. Baby Cribs (2), high chairs and other baby items are available upon request at no additional charge.The home is both luxurious and comfortable making the SunDancer the perfect beach retreat. The 3-story gulf front home has been recently remodeled with all of the essentials. Magnificent views from every room!

Enjoy a great pool with Jacuzzi, Sonos surround sound, home security system, wine refrigeration, a fantastic built-in grill on the lanai, a kids room with a PS4, DVD player, and much more. Our house will please those wanting to entertain, relax, or just beach bum around. From the baby grand piano to a one of a kind hand blown chandelier, this house will please everyone.

Known for the most amazing sunset views, the 3-story home offers two house-length porches. The second floor lanai, is screened in and is great for an afternoon nap or hosting an outdoor dinner. The balcony off the 3rd floor is accessible from the master bedroom, home office and Jr. master suite and is amazingly romantic, out of all our years on Captiva, I can’t think of a more spectacular place to watch the sunset. It’s the perfect spot to enjoy a glass of wine or a cold Corona and lime before heading down to the Lazy Flamingo or one of the many restaurants within a mile from the home for a great island dinner. The house sits right on the beach with a great pool, newly landscaped backyard and feet friendly path to the beach. My daughters’ love to get up in the morning and head straight for the beach for their morning run, you’re crew will surely love doing the same. I know I’ve mentioned the Captiva sunsets, but the morning colors also make the views spectacular. If you’re looking for a great island escape and being surrounded by a relaxing yet luxurious home, we would love to have you as a guest at the SunDancer.

About Sandy Farmer

Midwestern couple from Missouri that have vacationed in Captiva for 30 years! Since we are unable to move to Captiva at this time we would love for others to enjoy our beautiful home and island.

Sandy Farmer purchased this house in 2012

Why Sandy Farmer chose Florida

After renting the home for several years we had a wonderful opportunity to purchase the home. We owned a condo in South Seas Resort for nearly 20 years when we found ourselves in need for a home that was wheelchair accessible and luckily we found the SunDancer!

What makes this house unique

The home is located directly on a very private beach. Enjoy your own tropical paradise with magnificent views from all the decks and rooms. The landscaping is unmatched on the island with plenty of room for play and family celebrations. The home has been completely remodeled to offer unsurpassed luxury and relaxation.

Gorgeous house and location.

  • 4 of 5

This house was perfect for our family of 13. Owner thought of everything to make our vacation wonderful, right down to a beach wagon loaded with toys and an awning to pitch on the beach for shade.

Only thing we couldn't control was the "no-seeum" bites that plagued the people in the top front bedrooms. They must get thru the screens on the patio doors up there.

The kitchen is very well equipped and included tons of spices in the pantry. We ordered groceries on-line from Jerry's grocery a few days before we got there and just drove thru their pick-up window on the way to the house.

You will love the pool area and the built-in speaker system that brings music to all areas. The ocean is just a very short walk down the path. Thousands of shells wash up every day and everyone had fun searching for unusual ones. The boogie boards provided were a great hit in the waves every day.

There are two laundry rooms which helped keep towels clean and in supply. There were plenty of beach towels provided which were appreciated.

The house is just a short drive to popular restaurants.

Every amenity that you need has been provided in this house to assure a great vacation.

Best Family Vacation EVER!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of nine was so fortunate to stay at the Sundancer for a week. Everything was amazing from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. Upon opening the front door, there are incredible views in every direction. This house has everything you could want and then some. The family gathering areas are perfect and the bedrooms, each with their own bath, are spacious and beautifully decorated. The sunrises and sunsets are spectacular to view from the veranda and decks. Our family really enjoyed coming back to the pool to relax after a round of golf or spending time at the pristine beach. We cooked breakfast most mornings and the kitchen has everything one could ask for. Sandy was a great source of information and gave us many good recommendations on things to do and places to eat. She truly wants everyone to enjoy their stay. This is absolutely the perfect place to come to for a family vacation. Words really cannot do justice to this beautiful home and its surroundings. There is something for everyone to enjoy in this tropical paradise. Thank you for sharing your wonferful home with us for a week. While it was only a week...we made memories to last a lifetime! Hopefully, we will be able return in the future.

Incredible Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Planned this family vacation for a year in order to get all of our adult kids off work etc. Spent many hours searching areas, homes, condos etc. Could not have chosen any place better. First, talking with Sandy was a pleasure. Had many questions during the time we booked until we left and she was more than willing and gracious to supply all information and answer all questions. The only word out of everyone's mouth when we arrived at the house was WOW, are you kidding me. We each went from room, to room, to room and then to the view. What a spectacular home. Immaculate and equipped with EVERYTHING. There were 6 adults, 2 teenagers and a 9 month old. Perfect for everyone. More than enough room. We were all able to be together yet retreat to our room or other areas when needed. We cooked 90 % of our meals here. Kitchen was wonderful, stocked with anything we needed. We literally wanted for nothing. There is not enough space here to tell everything about this house, the pool, the yard, the flowers, the beach. I hope we can return. We wanted to give our kids a once in a lifetime family vacation, and this was more than what we hoped for. All of Sandy's recommendations were excellent. Fishing with Jimmy at Tween Waters Marina, Bubble Room ( a must go to), we rented bikes for the family, didn't need a car. Had groceries delivered before we arrived. The 2nd floor screened area was a family gathering place especially for dinner. We also had our updated family portraits taken on the beautiful grounds and the beach. Thank you Sandy for making your home available. This week was truly a blessing for our family.

Truly Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Our family was lucky enough to stay a whole week in this paradise like home. When we first walked thru the doors, it was hard to focus on just one room or one view, because everywhere you looked, was a breathtaking and beautiful sight. The Beach, The Pool, The Big Bedrooms, The Wide & Expansive Kitchen, & most of all the relaxing verandas: on the main level, and the master level: both were absolute delights to sit, talk, relax, and be with one another, while taking in the stunning view of the beach & mighty ocean. We couldnt have dreamed of a better place to spend time with one another, then this Paradise like home.

Perfect Family Reunion Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay over Thanksgiving week. The house was immaculate and beautifully decorated. There was something for everyone in our multi-generational 14- person family. The kids loved the pool and hot tub, the adults loved sitting on the giant screened in porch or veranda and taking in the beautiful beachfront views, my 75 year old mother loved being able to take the elevator between the three levels and we all loved searching for shells on the nearly deserted beach. The owners and the housekeeper could not have been nicer or more accommodating. There were lots of very sweet extra touches. Thanks for a great stay!
