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.

What makes this condo unique

Closeness to Captiva Village. Can walk to Starbucks for coffee, Walk to 4 village restaurants to enjoy food, acoustic guitar, or Bubble Room desserts.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We stayed for a week right before Christmas. Had a wonderful time. Condo was very neat and clean with all the amenities we needed. Beautiful spot, great views of the gulf, and a short walk to the beach. Didn't need to use the resort as the town has plenty to do. We did walk around the harbor, which is lovely, and go on a cruise. We were able to do everything we wanted to do at a much more reasonable price than if we had rented through the resort. Highly recommended spot. Owner was very accommodating and easy to work with. Super helpful, too.

Captiva Beach Villa 2126 is beachfront on Sunset Beach within the gated South Seas Island Resort. While within the resort property, Captiva Beach Villa 2126 is not affiliated with South Seas Resort. South Seas rents properties leased from private owners, generally at a much higher rate which helps cover the resort operating budget including costly amenities. Price is the clear advantage to renting Captiva Beach Villa 2126 rather than booking through the resort. You enjoy the nicer accommodations at a much lower rate. You can still use the Beach Villa Complex owned amenities, these include the local pool, patio, grills, beach, and tennis courts. Many of amenities offered by South Seas resort are available from vendors in town or on the resort property. Captiva Village has 8 lovely restaurants, shopping, entertainment. All with in walking distance.

Winter getaway

  • 5 of 5

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!

Owner's Response: 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.

An excellent condo, however Remax should do better

  • 3 of 5

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.

Captiva Beach Villa

  • 5 of 5

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.

  • 5 of 5

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.
