2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Captiva Island, Florida
Experience the laid back Captiva Island lifestyle with this classic 2 br, 2 full bath cottage, just 150 yards off the beach. Sleeping 6, its private, secluded, screened and large 26 x 14 foot heated pool (with Mermaid mosaic on the pool floor) is off the double French doors of the living room. The pool deck and outside leading to the secluded shower area is covered in paver stones. It's very easy to entertain children with no stairs to deal with between the house and pool.

Captiva Island can be driven to easily in one hour from Ft Myers Airport (RSW). Not so with North Captiva, a totally separate island where cars can't go - just passenger ferry service from Cape Coral. Do not confuse Captiva properties on this site with North Captiva properties intermingled.The Mermaid Home is among the most popular homes in the village, an...

We stayed here a week before the big storm was to hit the Island and local area. Right from the very start we found the process of selecting and booking this property very easy and straight forward. All my wife's 1001 questions were answered and some that she hadn't thought of. The details of rental are very straight forward and...

Management response:

Best vacation rental experience ever from the minute we walked in the door at the mermaid house we knew we were in for a week of perfection. The house has everything you need to relax and enjoy the wonderful island of Captiva. Stepping out the French doors into the pool finding an oasis of quiet and privacy. The kitchen is...
