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.
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 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.
- NOTE! We're heavily booked this season. If our calendar shows your date preference is already reserved, send us a request, and with a Florida Realtor's license, we'll respond with available Captiva homes we know and trust at no extra cost to you.
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 work space, 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.
Biking is wonderful on Captiva and Sanibel Island and our men's and ladies' aluminum 7-speed beach cruiser bicycles are provided for your exclusive use.
Even more information: Bikes for younger children or trailers for our bikes 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.

Larry Hahn, Owner purchased this house in 2002
Captiva is a boutique type Island, often compared to Aruba without the wind, or Hawaii without the volcanos. Captiva is a tropical Carribbean style island and looks nothing like the rest of Florida. The Sun & Moon is centrally located in the village center on the beach side of the village. There are no streets to cross between our house and the beach.
For some it's the immaculate preparation of the house and pool, for others it's the style of furniture always kept fresh, perhaps the great audio system with i-Pod docking and poolside speakers, or perhaps the HD TV in the living room and LCD TVs in each bedroom. Some just love the unique beach cart we assembled with special oversize balloon tires. It's easy to haul all our beach chairs, umbrella and ice cooler to the beach with this handy cart. Let's not forget the 7-speed aluminum bicycles we also provide. And our large top floor furnished sun & moon deck is always well used for a great tan or star gazing on a clear Captiva night..
We spend a week in Florida each January with 2 of our adult children and 2 grandchildren from Fairbanks, AK and this year chose Captiva. The Sun and Moon house was absolutely perfect for the 6 of us. First and foremost for our group, the Sun and Moon house is extremely clean, bug free and comfortably furnished.
The grandchildren and their parents had 2 very large bedrooms and adjoining baths on the second floor and we had a suite in the back of the first floor that could be closed off from the rest of the house. The privacy afforded by the floor plan works very well for extended families.
We may have stayed in more luxurious villas in Florida but never in a home so well equipped and well cared for. We didn't even need to replace paper products during our stay! The kitchen is very well appointed with quality dishware and cooking equipment.
It is obvious that Larry and Donna take great pride in the home and have put a lot of thought into providing for the comfort and convenience of their guests. Everything you need for the beach is provided and they have even reviewed local restaurants and have suggestions for shopping and activities in the area. From the home you are a short walk to the beach and many restaurants.
Our favorite feature was the heated pool in the large screened pool area that the grandkids could use even when it was too cool for the beach.
We loved the whole experience and will go back next year. Thanks, Larry and Donna! You can't go wrong with one of their properties or Captiva.
On behalf of my family and myself, I want to thank you for having such paradise available to us. This week was one of the most amazing weeks we have had as a family, we will always remember your house as something amazing and a blessing to all of us.

Captiva Island is a true paradise and I want to let you know that your house exceeded our expectations by a million!!
Thank you so much,
The Sun and Moon has everything!!! House is perfect, immaculate and very very cozy. The previous reviews are spot on and it is really like being home and this is my first time renting a home away and I loved it!!! Larry the owner has it perfected. Nothing missing. And that is why this home is fully booked. And if you want the perfect Thanksgiving….book now, we had that this past Thanksgiving…. it was the best!!! Love love Captiva!!!
We had a great week at Sun & Moon. Everything we needed was there and the house and pool were better than we expected.
Thank you, Larry, for another wonderful experience at Sun & Moon. This is my third year to stay in your beautiful home and always leave looking forward to the next. I appreciate the warmth, immaculate condition and attention to detail. You think of everything.
We just got home from our first visit to Captiva Island. We had our two sons, daughter-in-law and two grandkids, 4 year old and 3 month old. The house was perfect, with a large master bedroom and bathroom, and two other nice sized bedrooms with bathrooms. It was a 4 minute walk to the beach down the sandy lane, made easy with the beach cart!! Everything you need is here; chairs , umbrellas beach toys and coolers. After the beach you can relax at the pool, sit on covered patio with ceiling fan and its screened in so no bugs! The owner is terrific and it was a wonderful experience!
We spent a week in the Sun and Moon house for the second time; first time was wonderful, second time even better. We are a family of 6 , with 3 kids.
First, the location is a wonder: Captiva is a dream island , the whole family fell in love with it; the house is ideally located a few minutes walk to the main shops and lots of great restaurants. More important, you are 3 minutes walk to the prettiest beach you can imagine.
Second, the house itself is absolutely beautiful : the decoration is lovely, as you can see in the pictures; the house is spotless on arrival; the bedrooms are large and comfortable, 3 nice bathrooms, the kitchen fully equipped with good quality material, the pool is warm and clean
The little cart to go to the beach goes with plenty of beach chairs, umbrellas , toys, ... nothing you can dream of is missing to make your days at the beach a pure pleasure
Larry really makes everything to make your stay perfect: he is personally there at check in to make sure everything is ok, and if any problem occurs, it is fixed within hours.
we will come back if we have the opportunity , and will definitely recommend the house to any friend
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.
