"We all screamed "amazing" when we walked in the house because Mom hadn't showed us the pictures. It felt like home after just 1 day. The commute to the beach (20 seconds) and Sunsets were the best!
We had a wonderful week in Captiva and LOVED your home, Sunset Dreams! Our entire family felt very comfortable in your home and we didn't want to leave :) Your home is equipped with everything a family could possibly want or need while on vacation. It was a nice touch to walk into the home and find the air conditioning cool, the music on the tv playing and a gift basket on the kitchen counter. We enjoyed all the goodies it contained....my husband and I drank that bottle of wine on the master balcony one night as we watched the sun set. We also really appreciated the wagon, beach chairs, umbrellas, and beach towels that were all ready to go! We also appreciated the well equipped kitchen since we prepared a lot of our own meals. This house was a great find and we will definitely recommend this home rental to others and hope to return one day ourselves.
This was truly a dream location. The Townhome was beautiful...so much attention to detail! It was plenty big enough for my husband and I , our two daughters, a son-in-law and our 20 month old grandaughter. We loved every minute! The proximity to the beach and to town was great. The time of year was also great...since the crowds were gone. The sunsets were amazing and seen from the two front decks on the house. The house completely stocked with the latest appliances. Such a nice touch was a basket of goodies at arrival! We'd love to do this again!!!
My wife and 5 kids spent a week at Sunset Dreams. We were very happy with the property. The property is exceptionally well appointed. It is more like a private residence than a rental in this sense. I am a serious cook and found the kitchen to have everything imaginable. There is a drip coffee maker and a Keurig. There is a wagon with high quality beach chairs... I loved the location also. The beach is a very short walk across the street. It is also only a 10 minute walk down the beach into town.
This has taken me forever to write this review, but I felt it necessary. This was the most amazing place we have ever been! We are not rich, but have money to travel and enjoy nice vacations. This house had it all! It is homey, cozy, immaculate, gorgeous, has insane sunset views and is feet from the beach. I thought that having a Wii system with guitar hero was a bit silly, because why would you ever want to stay inside? Boy, was I wrong! My whole family enjoyed that system after being burned out after long days outside. My kids, 11 and 12 years old, loved the bunk beds and the sacs to relax on. The wagon with beach gear was a welcome necessity. We enjoyed walking the town, restaurants, and the hermit crab races at Tween Waters Inn. Going to Hawaii this year because my husband needs to go for work, but next year it will be back to Sunset Dreams! Thanks Dan for an amazing experience. I second all of the other reviewers positive comments that I don't have time to write. We didn't want to leave!!! I had high expectations because of the price and location, and this exceeded them all.
Sunset Dreams was true to its name. Dan's home on Captiva was a wonderful
experience for our extended family vacation. I was looking for a home to
accommodate four generations of my family – our parents in their 80’s, my
sister and I, my niece and husband in their 30’s, a 3 year old and infant.
We all enjoyed the spectacular beach on the gulf, views and amenities. The
toughest decision we had to make in the morning was whether to hit the
beach first or head to the pool and jacuzzi in the tropical oasis behind
the house; most days we’d do both several times! The proximity of the
villa to the beach or pool for the elders and youngsters was invaluable.
The red wagon to transport chairs, umbrellas and sand toys was so
thoughtful and just an example of the amenities. Nice having the shower
near the garage area to rinse off the salt and sand and a gas BBQ by the
pool area. The house comfortably fit 8 and had great spaces in the house
to retreat to read, hang out, watch tv or play videos games without
disturbing others in the group. In no way felt crowded. We loved walking
on the beach, finding conch and gorgeous seashells. This section of the beach is quiet and full of wildlife. We were fortunate enough to see dolphins passing nearly daily and even watched them swim by us about 20 feet away one afternoon. Excellent bird watching too (Pelicans, sandpipers). The beach
is great for all ages and shallow for quite a bit for easy swimming. We
rented stand-up paddle boards from YOLO to which you could walk on the
beach. We’d have coffee on the rear 3rd floor lanai early in the morning to watch
the sunrise over the palm trees on the bayside, lunched on the 2nd floor
lanai in the shade, and in the evening watched the sun just melt into the
gulf from either of the front porches or on the beach just steps across the
road from the house. We even stargazed from the new porch on the upper
level which the neighboring villas don’t have. The kitchen design was so
well thought out and appointed we ended up going out just once the first
night as we didn’t have supplies. We had a great time cooking together,
which was actually less stressful than going to a restaurant with a party
of 8. Nearby restaurants include Mucky Duck or Bubble Room to name a few.The location and house exceeded expectations - I will definitely be eturning.
We couldn't have asked for a more spectacular stay for our anniversary than Sunset Dreams. First, let me say that Dan Sierra has been the best owner I have ever worked with. Having said that, Sunset Dreams is a wonderful accomodation and couldn't have a better location. Having coffee for sunrises on the bayside lanais and then wine for the sunsets on the ocean front decks can't be beat. The whole esperience was top rate from beginning to finish.
Captiva is a tropical paradise like no other in the United States. Captiva Island is a barrier island in the tranquil Gulf of Mexico on Florida’s southwest coast. North of Sanibel Island and West of Fort Myers, world-renowned Captiva is also just three hours from Tampa and Miami by car. A narrow seashell-laden island famous for its dramatic sunrises and sunsets, celebrity visitors and creative residents, Captiva is home to private waterfront estates, two large resorts and several charming small inns. The heart of the island is its vibrant ‘downtown,’ coined “the village,” in which visitors and locals stroll among colorful galleries, shops and restaurants with live music and water views. Captiva is also a water sports destination and offers boaters multiple marinas with overnight dockage.
As you can tell by the picture above, one of the island’s most beautiful gifts is the sunset over the Gulf of Mexico right outside your front door. Captiva is one of the furthest points west in Florida which gives you the best view and amazing colors fill the sky. National Geographic Traveler magazine names Sanibel and Captiva as among the world’s best islands. Travel and Leisure magazine rated Sanibel and Captiva as having some of the top shelling Beaches in the world, describing it as a “Sheller’s Mecca where you can find the best unburied treasures in the US”.
You will be captivated by beautiful alluring Captiva Island, where once it is said pirates roamed, conquistadors explored and Calusa Indians called home. The mystery and adventures are still here. Treasures to be found include; spectacular white sand beaches scattered with treasures from the sea (pastel colored seashells) and breathtaking sunrises and sunsets. Captiva is one of the few islands literarily made up of shells created over thousands of years, and one of the places considered best in the world for shelling. The islands geography of lying east and west rather than north and south as most islands, allows Captiva to catch abundant sea shells from the Gulf of Mexico.
The famous J. N. Ding Darling National wildlife Refuge is second only the beaches as the islands top attraction with 6400 acres of forest and watershed making up one of the largest mangrove wildernesses in the country. It is in the top five most visited refuges in the US. Each year over 800,000 people visit the refuge and explore the wildlife drive. You can take a self guided car or Tram tours or experience the professional guided tour. Birders have spotted nearly 250 species in the refuge, many of them rare types that life-list keepers flock to see. Call 472-8900 for information.
From the end of Sanibel the beach stretches 5 miles to the northern tip of Captiva Island at Redfish Pass. Captiva Drive is a road with giant cactus, colorful bougainvilleas and other tropical flora along a stretch of sea and sand ending at “Captiva Village”. It will remind you of a small lush island in the Caribbean.
