PROPERTY Description

Our Sun & Moon House, a 3 br/3 bath Key West inspired home on popular Wightman Lane, is only a two to three minute walk down the sandy lane to the beach -- rated the most romantic for its calm, warm water, tropical atmosphere, and gorgeous sunsets. The restaurants in the village are just as close. And please note, we're on Captiva Island where you can drive to, unlike North Captiva - a totally separate destination - where no cars are permitted.

We accept only Saturday to Saturday reservations, as is the standard on Captiva Island. We accept reservations no further than a year in advance, as current guests have first option to reserve the same week the following year. If the guests do not re-book by 10am of their departure day, a new reservation request will be accepted.

The decor is always kept updated and amenities reflect a finished, comfortable home, rather than a rental unit. The new kitchen is fully equipped for any entertaining needs. Dining choices include a dining room or the screened, furnished lanai by the newly re-finished swimming pool and paver stone covered deck, or even the furnished sun & moon deck on the top level.

The glass-sided living room, with Italian leather super comfortable sleeper sofa and side chairs, offers a panoramic view of the swimming pool and the tropical foliage. The entertainment center has a 42' HDTV, DVD, and a Bluetooth connected 100 watt Onkyo stereo receiver, 6-disc CD changer and Infinity speakers inside and JBL poolside speakers. A large collection of CDs are provided. Wireless Comcast Internet and free long distance calling in the 48 states. Beach towels, chairs, umbrellas, ice coolers and handy beach cart make for an easy beach day.

The master bedroom on the second floor has a king-size bed, its own full bath, and 32" HDTV. The "sun & moon" deck is accessible from this room as well as the hallway.

The second floor guest bedroom has two twin beds, HDTV/DVD, Receiver and CD player, and its own bath in the room. Children love this spacious and well decorated and equipped room. The twin beds can be placed together (with advance notice) and made up as a King size bed for a couple.

The first floor guest room, separated from the main living area for privacy, has a full bath, desk workspace, and 32" wall mounted HDTV. It's perfect for another couple, the grandparents, or a nanny for the children.

Naturally, all linens are provided and you'll find everything in perfect, move-in condition. Beach towels, lounge chairs, and umbrellas are provided for the beach. Our pool lanai is totally furnished and a Weber gas grill is ready for a cookout.

Even more information: Bikes for adults or children can be rented and delivered to your door. The best restaurants in Captiva's village are no more than a two to three-minute walk away. Golfing on two 18-hole courses, The Dunes, and Beachview, are just 20 minutes away on nearby Sanibel Island. Our Guest Guide, found in the living room, lists many of our personal recommendations to get your vacation started quickly.

This home is not managed by a management company, but by us, the owners. We personally supervise and assist our cleaning staff each Saturday. As the last to walk out the door prior to your arrival, we can assure you the Sun & Moon is one of the most immaculate and best prepared homes on Captiva, both inside and outside.

We also personally own and maintain our smaller Mermaid House, a classic Captiva cottage style home. You are assured of a perfectly prepared house, both inside and out, as we're the last to leave the house before you arrive.

 

Captiva, FL, USA

Southwest Florida is the surrounding area serviced by Ft Myers' Southwest Regional International Airport (RSW). One of the 'Crown Jewels' of this area is Captiva Island, just a 35 mile, very pleasant drive from RSW. Captiva Island is described by some as Hawaii without volcanos, or Aruba without the wind. However you relate to it, it's not like a typical idea of Florida. We locals just think of it as a laid back, Carribean style tropical island on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico.

Wonderful as always
It was the third time that we stayed in the Sun and Moon House, and that speaks for itself. As I have previously written, everything about it is perfect. The location is ideal, close by the lovely restaurants and shops of Captiva (though you will need a car for big groceries trips to Sanibel). The beach is at the end of the street , 5 minutes walking , with the little carriage included in the location , containing everything to make your day at the beach perfect. The house is lovely, clean and well appointed. Beds are very confortable. The pool is perfect, screened and warm. Larry is a charming host, very available and helpful.

Beautiful place with everything g you need.
The moment you arrive you are in instant satisfaction and relaxation. Larry makes sure you have all the basic supplies to get through the week. It was a close walk to restaurants and the beach. Any beach supplies you can think of Larry has them. This is just a beautiful house. Thank you so much Larry. I have to say if you like boating, Jensens Marina is short waking distance and they are top not h and really friendly people.

Wonderful Christmas experience
The home is beautiful and exactly as described. The pool was clean and warm as promised and my 6 yr old granddaughter absolutely loved it! The owner Mark called the day we arrived and made sure everything was in place that we needed for a wonderful stay! The Sun and Moon will definitely remain on my list for future visits. to Captiva! Thank you Mark..

Fantastic location, great accommodations, and a fabulous owner! Highly recommended!
We had a great time staying at Larry's Moon and Sun house on Captiva. The house was immaculate, everything you could need for a beach vacation was there, and the location is walking distance to anywhere you would want to go. Larry is very easy to work with and accessible. It's literally a five minute walk from the beach, and the pool at the house was amazing! You can't go wrong with this place! Thanks Larry!
