About Glenn Major
Discovered Captiva in the 90's while attending a conference. After several vacations , had the good fortune to buy our second home here.
Glenn Major purchased this Condo in 2001
Why Glenn Major chose Captiva
Captiva is that place we go to to get a vacation from vacations. Unhurried days of beach, books, and bicycling. Our visits are never long enough. Being a loft unit, tall ceilings with fans and skylights gives an open feeling. Loft sleeping area gives flexibility of of added beds without utilizing the down stairs sleeper when the kids visit.

Nice and convenient to relax with family and have a little getaway
Perfect for us, wanted to enjoy the beach and we did. Had family come in for a day to visit great for socializing and catching up. Overall great vacation
As described, terrific location - steps to beach
We loved it - exactly what we were looking for, great location on the resort, clean and well maintained.
An excellent condo, however Remax should do better
Hi Glen, We had a great week as usual. However, there are several small things, all due to Remax. No dish towels, dish cloths, pot scrubber. Although dishes went through the dish washer before we arrived they were not clean. No non-slip rubber mat in the showers (very dangerous). No salt-pepper. Lower bedroom cupboard full and only 4 hangers. Only one dishwasher soap cube. Tissue, toilet paper, soap cheapest available. None of these are critical by themselves, but put them together and the result is - Remax are not living up to thee standard set by Royal Shel last year.
we very much enjoyed our stay. The villa furnishings and beds were quite comfortable. We especially enjoyed sitting on the lanai and looking out at the palm trees and ocean. The short walk to the beach made it very easy to come and go throughout the day. While we could enjoy the sunset from the lanai, we mostly walked down to the beach to take it in. Our first night the sunset was amazing and we saw several dolphins feeding.We rented a golf cart (Yolo) during my grandson's visit and had fun driving around the island. Didn't really need it with the restaurants all being so close. Had many visits to Doc Ford's. Would say our favorite was the key lime bistro. we were fortunate to be able to spend three weeks and enjoyed it very much!
Thank you Mary for the kind review. Breakfasts and sunsets on the lanai are always great on Captiva . Thanks for letting us deliver the new lanai furniture during your stay.
We enjoy walking to Keylime Bistro for breakfast after picking up coffee at Starbucks and the paper from the Island Store. Share a quiche, read the news, and watch Captiva wake up.
Captiva Beach Villa
The property was well-kept and clean. The condo was the perfect size for the 5 of us ladies. The kitchen was well-appointed with plenty of dishes, utensils, and up-to-date appliances including a new Keurig, as well as a regular coffee-maker! It was also very quiet. We never heard our neighbors except when they were on their balconies nearby. Very good restaurants were near-by as well as a small grocery and shops. Beach chairs and towels were provided as well as two beach umbrellas. The only problem we had was with the in-room safe - apparently the previous guests had closed and locked it with their own combination and we were not able to use it. That being said, we never really needed to use it.
Thank you for a great vacation!
The property was better than expected.
We rented this property to relax and enjoy some uninterrupted quality time with our children and grandchildren. Happily our goal was achieved thanks to the ambience of this wonderful beachfront villa.
Upon entering the unit for the first time we were pleased to discover it to be clean, well equipped, and welcoming. Walking straight through the apartment led us to the balcony which provided a panoramic view of the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. The furnished appliances, cookware, utensils, dishes etc. were top quality and appeared to be new. The beach chairs, beach umbrellas and beach towels were also first class. The walk to the beach is easy and brief.
I should mention that access to the unit requires climbing up two flights of stairs. This, however, proved to be a minor inconvenience in exchange for being located on the top floor of the building, the tremendous view, and the additional room provided by having a loft which provided the space needed to accommodate the eight of us. There is also storage available on the ground floor for the beach equipment so carrying this equipment up the stairs every day is not necessary. We used the trunk of our car for this.
FYI The gas grill is located across the street in the pool area and the laundry is on the first floor and the machines are coin operated.
The time we spent on Captiva Island will be a wonderful memory for our family and the homey atmosphere of this property is a major reason why.
