East Garden at Sol Mate

Sol Mate has been described as "the ideal vacation home" on Captiva Island, Florida. It's especially suited for large and multi-generational family visitors, or smaller groups that like a LOT of space.

This home has the perfect layout, inside and outside: comfortable, efficient, and easy for everyone. This could be the model for how a beach house ought be designed and furnished. And the location is ideal, too: right on the beach in a sparsely-built area (no public parking), near the Captiva Library, and a short walk to restaurants, shops, and activities in Captiva's Village Center.

Sol Mate fronts a wide section of Captiva beach, famous for its white sand, pretty shells, warm Gulf of Mexico water and abundant sunshine. A short boardwalk leads right onto the sand - so easy to pop back and forth between the house and the beach. A full accessibility ramp (photo right) with handrails spaced 28 inches apart leads down to a beach path or to the parking area. This is perfect for no-stairs entry or just for rolling in the luggage.

You could spend all of your Captiva time right there on the beach, or enjoy the many other activities of Captiva (many within easy walking distance). Numerous comfortably-furnished screened porches and a beach front sun deck offer fabulous views of the Gulf of Mexico and the famous Captiva sunsets.

Sol Mate boasts a lovely beach front yard with sea grapes and palms. A great new feature is the tiki hut with hot/cold shower and foot rinse, conveniently located as you return from the beach on the boardwalk. The beach deck is furnished with a bench and beach chairs, and the gas grill is located here.

The interior of Sol Mate orbits around the two-story great room. The west side of the house is almost all glass, maximizing natural light and those incredible views of the beach, Gulf of Mexico, and sunsets. The mature treescape lends just the right amount of privacy for sunbathing on the upper deck, and adds welcome afternoon shade in the right places below. The great room sitting area has a new pull-out sleep sofa. A large-screen HDTV covers the room. Beyond the fireplace (sorry, fireplaces are not available to guests) is a quiet den area which enjoys filtered southern and western light.

The kitchen (below) is set up for efficient work flow - essential when serving a large group of hungry Sol Mate guests. There is plenty of counter space for preparing and serving food and drinks, and for collecting dishes. The kitchen has a circulating flow around the central island. And everything is well lit with recessed flood lights. A second refrigerator (in the nearby laundry room) is handy for organizing lots of groceries or for chilling drinks.

The dining room has 11 chairs, and the table is shown configured for 8 places. There is a breakfast bar with several stools for more casual dining. Just outside on the shaded, screened porch are two more four-seat dining tables. An outdoor gas grill is provided on the beach deck.
