Guestbook comments from the owner

This is one of the best houses in Sunset Captiva. The owner is top notch: Chooch made us feel right at home. The house sleeps 6, we cooked gourmet meals, the herb garden was superb and we felt right at home. There was nothing better then walking a few hundred yards from the beach to the house to go make lunch. There is access to a pool and tennis court just foot steps away from the front steps. There is an outdoor shower which made cleaning up after a long day at the beach both easy and refreshing, especially for those with young children.

We will be returning yearly until further notice.

Sunset Captiva, new kitchen and pickleball!
average rating of 5.0 based on 35 reviews

A wonderful vacation rental! Great location! Can't wait to return!!

  • 5 of 5

This was my family's first vacation stay on Captiva Island. Everyone was so pleased in my choice of accommodations. Sunset Captiva 50 provided ample space for my party of 6. The house was extremely well kept (beautifully decorated), comfortable, and CLEAN!! Maria does an excellent job!! I utilized the kitchen 3/7 evenings. Ruth has made a point to provide everything you can imagine for meal prep in her beautiful kitchen! The access to the beach was just a short stroll down the lane. The Sones' also have you covered for your beach outing. There were beach chairs, umbrellas, inflatables, beach towels, cooler, and even a beach wagon available to haul your beach supplies! This home is only a short walk to the local market, restaurants, and specialty shops. Just a FYI: There is a little place called Molly Malones (located at the local market) that sells fresh seafood (the scallops, coconut shrimp, and crab cakes were amazing)!! All in all, this is one of the best rentals that my family and I have stayed at. We would not hesitate in renting Sunset Captiva 50 from the Sones family in the future.

Wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We truly had a wonderful week at Ruth's perfectly appointed home. The location is fabulous with just a quick walk through the quaint complex of Sunset Captiva to the beach and pool. Sunsets were beautiful and my kids (and myself!) really enjoyed the pool. We would definitely recommend staying here as all the other reviews already state! The Island itself has a lot to offer although it was hard to leave our little slice of paradise that is Sunset Captiva. We did a catamaran trip to North Captiva and got some really great shells and did a guided kayak tour of the bay side which was educational for the kids as well as a good opportunity to do some sight seeing. As most already state, do your shopping at Publix on the way as the Island store is small and expensive. I also recommend picking up some extra paper goods such as paper towels and bath tissue as we ran a little low with the kids!

What a beautiful house in a beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

Ruth's house is absolutely beautiful. It had everything we needed from kitchen equipment to things for the pool and beach. The pool on site was very clean and well looked after and the beach is only a few minutes walk away along the boardwalk. Everything on Captiva is walkable from the house (even in the rain we had). If we ever come ne back to this part of the world again we won't hesitate booking this house. Just stunning!
