Grey Heron  is directly on the beach on Captiva Drive, in the "Gold Coast" section of Captiva Island. This is a great location with lots of privacy and a gorgeous stretch of tropical white-sand beach. The Grey Heron main house has three large bedrooms, and two sleep sofas in the living room. Your own private, heated pool with in-ground spa tub is surrounded by a furnished sun deck and tropical landscaping beyond. The cascading sun decks offer magnificent views, while a shaded and screened porch offers a place to dine outdoors and enjoy cool breezes during the midday. Grey Heron has been extensively updated, including kitchen renovations. And there is plenty of room in the lovely Grey Heron Guest House, which sleeps up to six persons in three bedrooms and two baths with a full kitchen. The guest house can be added for $1400 (both high and low season).

The living room at Grey Heron naturally takes advantage of the lovely view of the beach and palm trees. This is a great place to watch sunset, though you may be drawn out onto the expansive main-level sundeck just outside the glass. A fireplace (sorry, fireplaces are not available to guests) and large HDTV, along with very comfortable furniture and tasteful decorations, make this the natural gathering spot after dark. There are also two queen sleep sofas in the living room, for additional space at night.

When it's mealtime, there are many options. The kitchen enjoys a view through the palms to the Gulf of Mexico. The breakfast nook which seats five and is conveniently close to the many work surfaces in the kitchen. A formal dining table is set up for six, but with extra chairs can accommodate more. Outdoors is another dining table for six enclosed within a screened lanai - ideal for morning coffee or meals anytime. The gas grill is right outside on the main-level sundeck.
