Welcome to Sunset Captiva #48! We think this is the most peaceful place on earth. But it can be a lot of fun too (see our lists of activities below). #48 is an extraordinary vacation home for up to six. It is a desirable location right in the Captiva Village Center, where you'll find it so convenient to step out for coffee or a snack, shop at the Island Store, or enjoy a meal at one of the fine restaurants! Both the beach and bay are an easy stroll, all within the Sunset Captiva community.

#48 is located on a cul-de-sac at the very end of Oster Court. The home feels secluded: nearly hidden in a thriving tropical forest and garden. Within the wall of greenery is a private lawn area with outdoor seating, with a separate staircase up to the rear lanai. Also on the ground level you'll find an outdoor shower and sand-rinse, plus a shell sorting bench for after your beach forays. There are bikes for your use, along with a great collection of beach supplies (that you won't have to rent or bring): umbrellas, chairs, toys, a beach cart, and more. Feel free to park in the shade under the house (we are 13 feet above sea level).

The main-level screened lanai has an outdoor dining table, and cushioned seating for five (including a wicker rocking chair). It is well lit so you can use it at night, and has two ceiling fans in case the midday breeze isn't enough.

The upper level sundeck faces east to catch the morning and midday sunshine while enjoying some afternoon shade. One end has two loungers and a table, while the other end has two wicker chairs, a table, and a storage chest. This sundeck is accessible through either bedroom suite, and is exceptionally private - perfect for morning coffee or sunbathing.

Living Room

Breakfast Bar


Dining Table

The inside of #48 is a joy, and we are sure you will LOVE it. This is a beautifully-maintained and well-equipped home: whatever you could need is here, and literally everything works so nicely: lighting, sliding doors, closet doors, blinds and shades, appliances, etc.

Each space is well lit, clean, and comfortable. Furnishings are sensible and high-quality. The extra decorations will add to your enjoyment of Captiva, from the classic Mucky Duck clock at the entrance to the cute signs in the kitchen and lanai (example: "At the beach, EVERY hour is Happy Hour").

Laundry Room with DVD Library

The living room has a queen-size sleep sofa, a love seat, and a plush easy chair with ottoman - all facing the fireplace and HDTV with 3D BluRay / DVD player (sorry, fireplaces are not available to guests). Adjoining is the dining room with seating for six, a Sony home audio system, and cabinets with stemware, bar and wine supplies.

The kitchen is fully remodeled and totally stocked with supplies and utensils: if you have it at home, it's probably here too. The refrigerator / freezer offers chilled water and ice on the door. The laundry room has full size washer / dryer, coolers and other supplies for guest use, and a surprise: a large library of DVDs. Also on the mail level is a guest half bath (powder room).

#48 is set up to be a family-friendly home, and kids are most welcome (but pets are not). We have provided everything we can think of that families might need. For your enjoyment we provide lots of entertainment and equipment for beach, pool, fishing, bikes, games, and LOTS of movies.

In our home you'll find many drawers and cabinets labeled "For Guests Use," with all those supplies you might need but won't find in most vacation houses: Saran Wrap, aluminum foil, ZipLock bags, coffee filters, detergent, blow dryer, First Aid kit, candles, sewing kit, rack of batteries in many sizes, flashlights, steam iron & board, Coolie Cups, and more. Guests can help out the next guests by replenishing low supplies the next time they are at the store.
