Overview

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.



Thanks

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.

Fantastic rental - highly recommended - comfort and nature

  • 5 of 5

Travellers : French family (2 adults and 2 children 4/6 yo)

Period : 1 week in August 2016

The rental is absolutely amazing, the house is spacious, quiet, clean with all the furnitures/equipments you might need (and really more than you can expect). You feel like at home when you enter the place. You can also enjoy the beautiful garden !

A 2-minute walk drives you to the swimming pool - Also very clean and quiet (not crowded) with heated water. The perfect place to rest.

Just after the pool you take a small trail which takes you over the dune to the beach. The gorgeous place of nature (dolphins, fish, tortles, birds, shells, rabbits, unforgettable sunset etc...)

We definitely recommend that rental, Bob the owner is absolutely nice and we will come back for sure !

Beautiful surroundings, peaceful area. Perfect place for a family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

After several days of road trip from Washington DC, we did enjoy our arrival in Captiva Island and appreciate the feeling of being "at home" in Bob's house. The house is cosy, spacious and it has got all you need for a family holiday: from the kitchen cookware to the beach gears. We had few rainy days but thanks to Bob's suggestions we never got bored. The beach and the pool are both from a walking distance so it is great with young kids.

Bob takes very good care of his guests (even during their stay) to ensure everything is fine.

If you love simple and beautiful place, Captiva Island is the place to visit.

Our family will definitely come back !

A delightful experience!

  • 4 of 5

Our stay in Sunset Captiva was most enjoyable. The Unit was well equipped and well cared for. It had everything to make our stay a memorable time for our family. The proximity to town, the library, the blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico, the Chapel and the bay was wonderful. We found the owner to be very accessible and agreeable during our stay.

Relaxing, tranquil In beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was just perfect.

The house is beautiful and equipped for every possibility, from equipment to use on the beach to books and games to while away the evenings or maybe a rainy day, not that we had rainy days! We felt we needed nothing, everything had been catered for.

It felt so relaxing and welcoming after a day's activities at the beach or pool

We also had great times on the dock, the fishing is indeed good - and varied - I even caught a small shark

Manatees and bird life abound to add to the experience

Captiva is a great place for a vacation with good bars and restaurants, try the ring toss game at RC Otters or The Mucky Duck whilst waiting for the beautiful sunsets!

All in all a perfect vacation home and destination, we can't wait to make a longer reservation

Thank you Robert for the privilege of sharing your home
