Property description

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. 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 great 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.

Notable for the most amazing sunset views, the 3-story home offers two house-length porches. The second floor deck, or lanai, is screened in and is great for an afternoon nap or hosting an outdoor dinner party. The deck off the 3rd floor is accessible from three separate rooms 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 the Mad Hatter for a great island dinner.

The house sits directly 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 shore for their morning run, you’re crew will surely love doing the same. I know I’ve mentioned the Captiva sunsets, but it really is the morning colors that make the island so special as well.

The house is fully accessible, with an elevator, and a wheelchair accessible shower, so no matter what your groups’ needs may be, the SunDancer will effortlessly accommodate.

If you’re looking for a great island escape and dream of being surrounded by a relaxing yet luxurious home, we’d love to have you at the SunDancer.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Captiva, FL, USA:
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!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
