About Janie and Alan

We married and honeymooned on Captiva Island 33 years ago. My husband gave me the choice of going to somewhere 'exotic' for our honeymoon or staying in the states and purchasing a washer and dryer. After years of hauling laundry to the laundromat all during college, I took the washer and dryer deal! It was the best decision I could have made since we discovered wonderful Captiva Island, a destination we could easily come back to year after year. We have 3 adult children that spent their growing up years and spring break weeks on the beaches of Captiva. It is a very happy and special place for our family, where many memories have and continue to be created.

Janie and Alan purchased this condo in 2013

Why Janie and Alan chose Captiva

Island lifestyle. A great escape from the hustle and bustle of day to day life.

What makes this condo unique

Sunset Captiva Bayside

  • 4 of 5

The unit was a great size for 4 adults and the 2 full beds in the 2nd bedroom were nice over twins. It is a little dated but had everything we needed for a great stay. The beach was a little further than I thought it was, so more tedious to carry chairs, cooler floats etc but we rented a wagon and it worked out well. Most places were within walking distance for sunsets, groc (few items, otherwise it was Baileys), restaurants, boating etc. The absolute best part was watching the manatees roll around in the bay!

Beautiful Spot

  • 5 of 5

We just finished a two-week stay in Captiva Sunrise. The setting was peaceful, the condo was excellent and the general area charming. We found that the property owners (long-term residents) were extremely friendly and welcoming. The pool is warm and inviting, the beach is spectacular and the dining opportunities in the area were also wonderful. The one thing visitors should be aware of is that getting to Captiva requires a long slog on a two-lane road where the speed limit is between 25 and 35 and almost no one exceeds those speeds and most drive even more slowly. This, i.e., the slow pace, is exactly the thing that some enjoy about the area. Come with the right mindset and you will have a wonderful visit.

Perfect Place for a Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My stay in this condo was amazing! Each morning you can watch the sunrise from your PJs. The view of the bay is amazing from the master bedroom, screened in porch, or living room. There is plenty of room throughout and is very comfortable. It is right on they bay and very close to the beach. The condo is impeccably clean and also has everything you would need. Whether you want to sit by the bay and watch the manatees which frequent by the dock, rent a kayak and take a lap around the bay, tan on the beach, play in the ocean, read a book, or walk around the island and shop in the stores- there is something to do for everyone. Again, the condo is very spacious, walking distance to restaurants close by, has incredible comfortable couches and beds, and is the perfect place for a perfect vacation!
