About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 7-8)

Beautiful Island house remodeled in 2015. Ideal location close to shops, restaurants and Captiva Village. Short two block walk to the beach and the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico, and a half block to the bay. We see dolphin and manatee in the bay all the time.

This home has ground floor living, so no stairs to climb everytime you come home from the beach. Sleeps 4 on ground floor with 3 more upstairs. Wonderful back yard completely private, with hot water rinse off shower for sandy feet. Parking for three cars.

Wonderful Stay at Island House

We loved our stay at Island House. It was a perfect vacation home: clean, pretty, great location and wonderful for bringing grand children with their parents. We would definitely love to return.

A Bit of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I went to Captiva for a last-minute getaway and we were lucky that the Island House was still available. The owner and rental agency were extremely nice and accommodating. This charming house is in a perfect location and we absolutely loved staying there. You will find everything you need for relaxation in the house and you will find everything you need for entertainment mere foot steps away. Leave the car in the driveway and take a stroll to the beach or to Doc Ford's or any of the awesome restaurants in village. Captiva in general and the Island House in particular are truly bits of paradise. We highly recommend you go there and decompress the way we did. We can't wait to go back.

Charming vacation property

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVED Island House. It is so comfortable and loaded with charm. We spent an entire month there with friends visiting part of the time and family the rest of the time. The upstairs apartment is perfect for guests as they have their own space. It was also great for our daughters and families. One daughter has a toddler and the other has teenagers. The location is perfect! Walk to everywhere. The teenagers especially liked this! We also biked several times to the Ding Darling Nature Preserve. Tom is the perfect host. We had an issue with the dryer and he took care of it asap. We would highly recommend this adorable cottage!!

Great House for Two Small Familes

  • 5 of 5

We are two couples each with a late teen son. The home was clean, beds comfortable. One of the features we liked about the property is the separate living areas, each with its own bathroom, kitchen, and living room. Downstairs is large enough for all to gather while each floor offers privacy for the adults/couples. Unless you're looking for a beachfront property, location is within walking distance of about anything you'd need. Beach, restaurants, boat rentals, convenience store (liquor) are all within a 10 minute walk. Would (and hopefully will) book this for another getaway in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you Len. Such an important point about how well our home works for two families. Thank you for your stay and for pointing this out for future guests. Our home is unique in that way and it really can enhance the vacation. Tom

Captiva Island House

  • 5 of 5

Five minutes from the beach, clean, comfortable, walking distance from shopping, food, fishing.... We stayed with our small children (4 and 2). The accommodations were perfect!! My parents stayed upstairs and it was a nice refuge for them when things got hectic downstairs. Kitchens, bathrooms and bedrooms were fully equipped. We rented a golf cart and it came in very handy. Saved our cars from all the sand and the kids LOVED it. There is parking at the North Shore so every evening we drove there to see the dolphins.

Tom is so wonderful to deal with!! We are planning our next vacation to the Island House right now.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you loved your family trip, and can't wait to have you back. The golf cart can be helpful, especially with small kids.

Island House

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the island house! It is located in the heart of Captiva and 5 minutes from the beach. It is a great location because there are so many things you can do within walking distance. It fit 7 of us comfortably and there was plenty of space. The separate quarters upstairs was perfect! The yard had a BBQ and space to relax. Very clean
