Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, Sleeps 8

Spend a week or longer at Ships Ahoy on beautiful and exclusive Captiva Island. Our ground floor home features nautical decor and over 4000 total sq ft of space. With two spacious master suites and two additional guest suites, you can bring your friends and family to stay in comfort. The main master bedroom suite has a king bed with the 2nd master bedroom suite featuring a private entrance and queen bed. The guest bedrooms have a queen bed and two twin beds. The courtyard style pool area is nicely manicured and is a great area to enjoy the tropical Captiva Island weather. Ships Ahoy will accommodate up to 8 guests. Our private Island retreat does have a great feeling of privacy, but is less than 200 yards to the beach, less than 200 yards from Roosevelt Channel and is just outside of the Captiva Village area.

Captiva Island is a beautiful and serene area located in the Gulf of Mexico in Southwest Florida. At just 4 miles long and a half mile wide at its widest point, it's exclusive and the perfect destination for beach vacations and enjoying boating and water sports. Ships Ahoy had a central Island location just a couple minute golf cart (street legal golf carts available for during the booking process) ride to the Village area which has several restaurants and shops. You're also a short distance to Sanibel which has many other things to do including Ding Darling Wildlife refuge, Shell Museum and much more.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Ships Ahoy Is Simply Awesome!! Thank You So Much for one of The Best Weeks’ Vacation that we have experienced on the Islands… It was everything our family had hoped and dreamed of when we booked it for our family vacation and my (surprise) 50th birthday gathering. The homes character and amazing charm is what you could only dream of when staying on Captiva Island. The look and feel of the home and how great it lives were a topic of conversation every day during our stay. The 2 main family living areas, large kitchen and huge porch made a perfect dinner setting for my birthday celebration. We had a cater come in for the party and it was the perfect setup to enjoy one another the entire night. The outdoor pool/deck space was awesome to hang out by after a day on the boat and beach. We grilled out every night, cooking red fish, grouper, and even snook that we caught off the properties dock out back just steps away. We chartered a boat and captain every day that picked us up right off the dock, which was so convenient. Ships Ahoy is the perfect house for multiple families or a large group. Bedrooms all split and lots of privacy from main gathering areas. Close to everything the island has to offer, short golf cart ride or walk to the village of Captiva, Tween waters Inn where you can enjoy music at the “popular” Crow’s Nest. We Can’t Wait To Come Back To Ships Ahoy! Mike M….

Reviewer Comments:

Ships Ahoy was the perfect home for a family gathering. Eight family members met here for our annual get together. The home was large, with enough room for each couple to have their own space and bathroom. It is beautifully decorated and has all of the amenities you would expect or need while on vacation. The outdoor space was perfect for morning breakfasts and dinners and we spent a great deal of time relaxing by the pool, which provided a good amount of shade at the right times of the day. The homes proximity to the beach was also a bonus. I would highly recommend Ships Ahoy to others.

Reviewer Comments:

We stayed at the villa for a week in early April. The location is perfect as it’s close enough to Sanibel that you can head there for restaurants and other conveniences but it’s far enough that you really almost feel like you are in the keys. Our son and friend would go out to the dock every day and fish in the morning and then we would head to the beach or have some other plan in the afternoon. We took a fishing charter based out of the resort just up the block. The weather was perfect, the home was in great shape, clean and as mentioned before, was in a great location. I would surely encourage others to stay here. A great getaway if you are tired of the weather up north.

Reviewer Comments:

Overall we enjoyed our stay. The house was lovely and the short walk to the beach was great! We were a little upset since we rented a 5 bedroom/bath house and only had access to 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms (the 5th was padlocked due to plumbing issues the day we arrived). We were told that the owner was in the process of making it a 4 bedroom/bath rental. I explained we paid for a 5 bedroom/bath & this was unacceptable. Although RE/MAX was able to provide a key to the 5th detached bedroom, the accomodations did not work for us since there was no working 5th bathroom as indicated and the bed was more like a double rather than a queen & two adults could not sleep comfortably. There were a few other minor issues but nothing that would hinder us from staying there again.

Reviewer Comments:

Ships Ahoy is the loveliest home--filled with fun decor, set up for entertaining, and loaded with amenities. The landscaping is spectacular, and the proximity to both the beach and the dock on the water provides the best of all locations. I particularly loved to sit on the dock and watch all the wildlife -- dolphins, manatees, and every kind of bird. The house layout is perfect for a large family. We made the most of every inch! My only reservation on the rankings concerns the kitchen floor tile. It needs new grout.
