About Dan

We have now owned and managed our vacation rental home on Captiva Island since 2003. We operate Millertime Villa as a business and our main focus is providing a comfortable, clean home with lots of amenities so that our guests will have a memorable, relaxing Captiva Island vacation. Many of our guests return year after year. We live in SW Iowa and personally inspect (and enjoy!) our home at least four times a year.

Dan Miller purchased this house in 2003

Why Dan chose Captiva

Captiva Island provides a year round world class vacation destination that is hard to find anywhere. As a rental unit the location provides the opportunity to stay fully booked throughout the year.

What makes this house unique

We all know a "place like Cocomo" as the Beach Boys song goes. Well Millertime Villa is it!

Guestbook comments from the manager

"This home is so wonderful we just got back from a week and wished we had booked two! The pictures do not do it justice. The location is absolutely perfect, beach was a minute away and the Mucky Duck a short walk (maybe 5 minutes tops) on the beach, same to downtown. We have two toddlers and the home was set up really great for them and pool has a very secure gate that allowed us to let them play on the lanai without us worring they would get into the pool area! The house itself is beautifully decorated and the layout is so spacious it really lends itself to relaxing dinners or cocktails with a few friends - with plenty of space for the kids to keep them occupied but within earshot. We very highly recommend "Millertime" for a great vacation spot! The Power Family"

Great 3 bedroom house w pool and walking distance to captiva restaurants.

  • 5 of 5

Had a great 1 week stay at Miller time with family. The screened pool is amazing and location near beach (4 houses away) and restaurants is perfect. The large master bedroom with updated private bathroom was a really nice treat. We cooked a lot and the kitchen was generally good but we would have appreciated sharper cooling knives - the current ones are mostly dull such that cutting anything takes a lot of work.

Mark this one a keeper!

  • 5 of 5

Millertime is even better in person. Everything is clean and well cared for. Having your own pool and the beach less than a block away make for the perfect location.

The home is inviting. You feel right at home immediately. You can tell the owners take good care of the property. You have everything you need to enjoy your vacation including beach towels, chairs and laundry facilities.

The outdoor shower even was warm!

Owner's Response: Our remodeled master suite was just completed in October 2017 and includes a completely new much larger master bath with a spacious relaxing walk-in shower! The old bath is now a nice walk-in closet. Hope you can come down a check out all our new features.

My favorite place to stay on Captiva...for a very long time!

  • 5 of 5

The Millertime Villa is AWESOME! The location is fabulous...just a quick walk to the beach, shops, restaurants, and the marina. The house is meticulously clean, beautifully decorated, and stocked with whatever you need. The new master bath is beautiful, and everyone even commented on how comfortable the beds were. We always especially enjoy the pool and enclosed outside sitting area. I have stayed at the Millertime Villa many times with various friends, and it is the only place any of us ever want to stay in on Captiva. I'm never at a loss for friends who want to join me! Couldn't recommend a nicer place!

A Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot possibly express in words how perfect this vacation was, and specifically how perfect this particular house was.

The house was the perfect size and all of the beds and the furniture were very comfortable. The living space felt bright and open and very homey. The Lanai was a huge area with a large table and a very cozy sitting area. Two overhead fans ensured that we could get a breeze going out there whenever we wanted, and we spent a large amount of our relaxing time in that area. The heated pool was a big hit with the kids- large enough for our whole group to get in together and swim/splash/play. There was also plenty of space around the pool to watch the kids swimming while enjoying a good book.

The house is situated perfectly on the island- and different members of our group commented on how happy they were to be in this specific location on the island. We were in a very calm little grouping of streets so that the kids could safely walk/bike around. The library was right on the street and had a beautiful children's area with a craft table, a computer with games just for kids, and an assortment of pop up books and huge picture books, and every Dr. Seuss book that I could think of. A little trail next to the library parking lot led to a beautiful beach that was never very crowded during our stay. The walk to the beach took no more than two minutes. A 'main' street that ran up through the whole island had a little bike/pedestrian shoulder allowing us to walk or bike up a couple blocks to another street with shops, restaurants, and YOLO rentals. (it was also a quick walk via the beach). RCOtters had a particularly delightful breakfast with outdoor seating, and Keylime Bistro made a delicious afternoon frozen cocktail that could be enjoyed outdoors while listening to live music.

I was expecting to find some beautiful shells, but I could never have imagined just how many beautiful shells we would find. I made an early expedition down the beach one day as the sun came up and would recommend that experience to any sheller.

We could easily have enjoyed a second week with everything there is to see and do in this area! And if we are ever lucky enough to be able to return we will definitely be staying at Millertime once more!!

Captiva Island, located North of its sister island Sanibel and across the causeway bridge from Ft. Meyers, has an international reputation as a year around vacation destination. For 365 days a year vacationers can enjoy swimming and sunbathing at the Gulf beach just two doors away, or in our pool, heated to a comfortable 85 degrees. Both islands are world famous sanctuary islands, noted for their abundance of seashells, miles of natural undisturbed beaches, fascinating bird life and beautiful subtropical foliage. Add the intrigue of pirate legends, conquistadors, a unique Carribean atmosphere, and a secret getaway for celebrities and you can see why Captiva Island is a world class vacation destination. Best of all Millertime Villa is located in the heart of Captiva Village, close to everything fun!
