About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Office, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This is a beautiful two-bedroom home with a separate den/office. It is located at 40 Oster Court within Sunset Captiva. The house is furnished and equipped as a second home--not a 'rental unit.' All three of the bathrooms are new. Our family loves to cook --the kitchen is a cook's kitchen. We are located on the quiet part of a private community, Sunset Captiva, just a few minutes walk from the pool and beach. We have a small citrus grove behind the house (grapefruit, orange, meyer lemon and key lime trees) and an extensive orchid collection. Several good restaurants are within a two minute walk. The community pool is only a three minute walk away. The beach is just a minute further. Boating and great fishing at the end of our community dock are across the street. The beach is extraordinary and extends for miles. This is a great vacation home for young families. We have two pak-n-plays, a high chair and baby monitor. We are at the end of a cul de sac--and the setting is quiet and private. Please take a look at our visitors' comments which pretty much convey the experience.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Bob,

Thanks for checking in. Everything was great. Loved your place and of course loved Captiva. We took your suggestion of kayaking with Barb on Andy Rosse and had a great day kayaking through the path on Bucks.

We have already recommended your place to others and we are very, very likely to return again next spring.

Fantastic house! The location is just a short walk to everything you need, the beach, pool, dinning

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, has everything you could ever need. The kitchen is wonderful and fully prepared, the bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious and inviting! Plenty of room on the screened in deck to eat breakfast, lunch, or dinner. All the things you need tucked away in a beautiful little community! Can't say enough about the host and their attention to detail, they made us feel like we were at home!

My family stayed a week at Sunset Captiva and the house was just like being at home! It had everything we needed and was close to the beach. We will certainly be staying at the Adler's when we go back to Captiva!!

As advertised and completely satisfied

  • 4 of 5

Had an overall great experience from my first email to reserve the house, until the day we shut the door on our way out. Everything you will need during your stay, is available in this house. The only consideration when renting a house in this community, is that they may or may not have umbrellas and or beach chairs. Both of which can be purchased or rented locally.

Best Captiva/Sanibel visit ever

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for opening your home to our family. I repeatedly tell people that these islands are our HAPPY place. This home fully suited our needs and the ability for me to see the sunrise and the sunset each and everyday was amazing. I would also like to thank the staff and Bob for finding the iPad we didn't realize we left behind.

Privacy, Space, Well-Appointed, Orchids and Manatees

  • 5 of 5

Barely 24 hours into our stay, we reserved for the same period in 2018 because we were delighted with the Adlers' house and the attention to detail that is evident instantly and which made our three-week stay so agreeable. Bob and Andy's house in the Village of Captiva is ideally situated in the Sunset Captiva multi-street cul de sac of condos--close to village shops and restaurants, swimming pool, beach and library but also quiet and off the main road. The house was immaculate, the decor is simple and tasteful, the kitchen is well stocked with nice quality cooking equipment, dishes, appliance and so on, and the bedrooms and bathrooms are also very well appointed. Good laundry facilities, lots of storage space and places for reading, including an outdoor deck and one beautiful screened porch that gives the illusion of being in a tree house as it overlooks a lush setting of fruit trees, orchid specimen and palms. The community dock, across the street, is home to many manatees and we spent hours watching these adorable creatures who enchant merely by blowing water and rolling over. The pride the Adlers take in their Captiva home is evident and well-deserved. We can't wait to return.
