About George Loomis

Diane and George are from Greenwood, Minnesota and bought this home for our eventual retirement. In the meantime, we treasure several weeks each year there with our two children and five grandsons, and hope that you will have the same wonderful experiences.

George Loomis purchased this house in 1996

Why George Loomis chose Florida

If you're looking for excitement, Captiva would be a mistake. But if you choose to relax and find everything you need in range of an easy walk, it should be your first choice.

The location was perfect

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our family of four but can certainly accommodate another family very comfortably. The location was great and the community was very quiet but not too quiet. The house was clean as shown in the pictures and the layout was great for us. The home is a short walk to the beach and we loved that everything needed to enjoy the beach for the day is available for you to use and is in very good condition. There are good restaurants within walking distance but one of our favorites was a short car ride away called The Lazy Flamingo. We really enjoyed our stay and are ready to book again for next summer. George was a pleasure to deal with and we would highly recommend this property to anyone who is considering a stay in Captiva.

This house was great; perfect for our needs!

  • 5 of 5

Great house; just the right size for our family. We found everything we needed, from kitchen needs to towels to beach toys. The community is very nice; the pool was great and the short walk to the beach every day was lovely. I do recommend sturdy walking shoes; the gravel road can eat up your flip flops! The location is great; we walked to the beach, the Island Grocery store, and the restaurants. Don't miss Molly Malone's for seafood; we got great shrimp and fish to cook on the grills in the complex. We had a lovely time and hope to stay here again!

Perfect Captiva Vacation

  • 4 of 5

We had the perfect vacation here. The house was plenty spacious for 4 adults. The lanai was all screened in and we enjoyed evening meals out here. We cooked on the grill many nights after watching the spectacular sunsets on the beach which is a very short walk. In the morning you could walk over to the bay and watch the sunrise. Just a perfect location. It's also a short walk to the village with all the little restaurants and shops. Homeowner George was very helpful with the reservations and he answered all my questions after we reserved the property as well. There is a wonderful boat dock on the bay side. We rented a boat ( Monroe Canal Marina in St. James City on Pine Island) for a week and owner George and maintenance man George were very helpful getting us the boat slip. The pool is also a short walk ( on the way to the beach) and was wonderful for a swim after a beach day. The pool area is well maintained and clean. There are tennis courts as well although we didn't play. Having a washer and dryer at the house was key as we didn't have to pack extra clothes and I had room to bring home all my shells collected on the beach each day! This is our first time staying in Captiva for two weeks as we have been faithful Sanibel vacationers but we will definitely be back to this property next year.

Excellent home, Cozy, Convienent, Clean, whatever it is you seek. whether its solitude or leisure!!

  • 5 of 5

I was blessed with the opportunity to stay at Captiva 47 with a few friends I know. At first, I thought there was no way I would ever get that lucky to stay someplace that nice. I'm just your average person, if you will, who never has an opportunity for a vacation like this.

This home was phenomenal. True paradise. I wanted to cry tears of joy upon my arrival. Very nice accommodations, clean and very modernized. Seriously, I pinched myself. I've been to beaches before, however, I was just in complete Aww of this home! The screened in deck was amazing, especially while it rained. Enjoyed reading and eating out there. The sun room is also nice and peaceful. I was pleased to have great TV, internet and washer and dryer. The beds and linens were SO comfortable. Spacious closets, ceiling fans and nice tile/carpeting. It was convienently located. We were able to walk everywhere we went and it was off of the main road. What made it even better was the hospitality shown from neighbors, locals and the groundskeeper. The folks were very nice. Such a beautiful place. I would recommend this home and Captiva Island to anyone looking for fun, solitude and many amenities all in one. Don't get me wrong, all of the homes looked nice. However, Captiva 47 is like smack in the middle and it was so easy to find our way around. This was my first time staying in a beach house before. I've always stayed in hotels. I would love to say I can't wait to return although, I know I will never have that chance again. Literally, I feel as though my stay was a "Once in a Lifetime" kind of thing. I hated to leave and I believe that anyone looking at the above home to rent, you need to do so. You will not be disappointed. Plenty of books to read, board games to play and beach essentials. Enjoy your stay after you make your reservation here. I will remember that house, my vacation there for the rest of my life. Great food around, places to shop and of course the beach, pool and tennis courts. This location is also within walking distance to the chapel and library. I hope to return one day. I guess I should say I can't wait for the day I return! It just may take me awhile. What I can tell you is I will never settle for anything else! Whatever the cost, it's worth it. I'm an over worked nurse who hadn't vacationed in awhile. I wasn't expecting to take away the memories I did. Oh, and the cabinets are great, window glass. Again...make sure you reserve number 47. You'll be glad you did.
