Almost Heaven is one incredible vacation house: spacious, professionally decorated in luxurious but sensible style, and in a great location. The property is quiet and private, yet convenient to the Captiva Village area restaurants, shops and activities (only a minute walk to the Green Flash Restaurant). The Gulf of Mexico beach is just one house away and the water can be seen from the master suite's sunny balcony.

Rooms are large and bright, and some enjoy lovely views of the bay or Gulf of Mexico. The home has a heated pool with waterfall from the in-ground spa tub - all surrounded by a lovely sun patio and made private with dense tropical landscaping. Be sure to see the Bedrooms and Bathrooms page for Almost Heaven!

The kitchen is "to die for," as you might expect at "Almost Heaven." It just just been further upgraded to sweet perfection, with additional lighting, a premium built-in microwave oven, new cabinet fronts, a slide-out trash receptacle, and more. The kitchen windows look down on the pool patio below, as seen in the photo (right).

Almost Heaven is unusual for its extensive and smart deployment of state-of-the-art technology. Of course the house has unlimited telephone (USA) and wireless internet connectivity throughout the house. But the fun really begins with the entertainment systems.

First, there is an integrated, three-zone digital sound system (master suite, pool and patio, and main house). A built-in iPad (photo left) provides touch-screen audio control and streaming digital content delivery - enjoy all the music in the world or even home-team sports broadcasts from radio stations across the globe. Sirius-XM is integrated, and you can log into your own Pandora (or similar) digital music account. Control it all from anywhere on the property using your iPad or iPhone. Just install the Sonos app and you have it all in your hand.

But it gets even better with multimedia! A new X-box gaming system is installed with the large HDTV in the great room. Bring your favorite games and your own controllers. Movies, HD sports, and other (cable) broadcast look and sound fabulous on the two home theater systems with professionally-tuned surround sound, big high-def TVs, and Blu-Ray. The setup in the great room is perfect for the larger audience, or retreat to the master suite sitting area for a separate screening in that superb home theatre setup. Even the bunk room has an enormous HDTV.
