Captiva and Sanibel Islands, lush with tropical vegetation and cooled by gentle breezes, are located in the Gulf of Mexico just over the causeway from Ft. Myers, Florida. Sunset Captiva is a private community of free-standing homes with direct access to the beautiful Gulf Beach, full of an endless amount of shells.
Captiva Retreat is a beautiful vacation beach home that boasts two private bedrooms, (two queens and bunk beds), a private den with queen-size wall bed, loft with single bed, and three full bathrooms. It comfortably accommodates eight guests. Our house is just 300 yards from the beach and 200 yards from the pool and tennis, along our very private road. It's fully climate controlled with a spectacular wrap-around screened porch, private sun deck, newly-renovated kitchen, and all the amenities for a memorable vacation.
Our large, heated, community swimming pool is just as popular as the beach. There's lots of space for both adults and kids, with comfortable lounge chairs and clean rest rooms provided. Behind the pool are our two first-class tennis courts, which never seem to be crowded. Also here are our community gas barbecue grills, lighted for evening use. The pool is open dawn to dusk, but no lifeguard is provided.
Everything in the Village of Captiva is an easy walk from the house, including the beach, pool, tennis courts, General Store, local shops, and eight restaurants - ranging from casual to fine dining. If you bring your own boat, you are welcome to dock it at our free dock. Jensen's Marina, located right across the street, offers boat rentals for fishing or exploring, or you can also hire a water taxi to give you the grand tour.
Welcome to the best vacation rental in southern Florida. We look forward to your visit!
