Overview

About the property

5 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, Sleeps 12

Location! Location! Gulf front with sparkling Captiva beach right out the front door, yet it is a short walk to the village to visit your favorite bar or restaurant. This is the house that has it all -- close to the village, but far enough away to enjoy the quiet and private life on miles of shell strewn beach. This gulf location affords the best of both shores with quick access to the inter-coastal water of pine island sound for fishing and boating.

You'll be captivated by beauty, both inside and outside, when you visit this 5 bedroom/4 bath luxurious home on Captiva island. Aloha baby is professionally decorated with a warm, welcoming, casual feel that's accompanied by amazing openness and breath-taking views. This property with developed tropical landscaping and a quiet, secluded heated pool and spa is truly an island paradise.

Enjoy unobstructed views of the Gulf of Mexico from the many windows in the spacious Master Bedroom with King sized bed and a large chaise lounge for afternoon napping or reading. The master suite includes a flat screen TV with cable, DVD player, walk-in closet, and master bath with 2 person, 10 jet tub, separate shower, double sinks, and dressing table. Step out of the French doors to enjoy your large private master balcony and view amazing sunsets.

Aloha Baby features a fully equipped, gourmet kitchen with gas stove top, dual ovens, large subzero refrigerator/freezer. Custom cabinetry, granite counters, and tile complete the sleek look. The Laundry Room is conveniently located off of the kitchen.

Bamboo wood floors compliment the large living room with gas fireplace, vaulted ceilings, plantation shutters, and plenty of plush seating. The sitting nook has a large flat screen TV. The entire home, including the pool area, is equipped with surround sound speakers. The Theatre room with 78' flat screen has 4 large leather recliners and a reclining love seat. Wireless internet is available from any room in the house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Aloha Baby has now been a yearly destination place for our family. We have been fortunate enough to keep getting invited back by my wife's family and the stay keeps getting better and better each year.



A few reviews and blog posts have made comments about specific issues from their time spent at Aloha Baby, some I agreed with and have been fixed. I wanted to address these issues in my review and give all future vacation renters piece of mind when considering Aloha Baby for their next stay...



Check-In Process:

Aloha Baby is under new management for the owner and the change was definitely needed. The new management company has simplified the process for checking in, not as cumbersome as the previous company. Onsite property manager was terrific when we arrived, she was finishing her final walkthrough from previous renters.



The house was ready to go upon arrival. The management company had a handyman onsite fixing a few issues caused by the previous renters. We were very impressed by the handyman's upfront explanation of time at the house, coordinating any future visits to repair around our vacation schedule (preferably while we are away), and making sure we had contact information for any future issues.



Pool and Hot Tub:

Both the pool and hot tub were a huge hit with the kids. Definitely worth the cost when comparing beach houses with and without the amenities. Pool has a heater, which is provided by the hot tub's waterfall of water. The pool will not heat if the hot tub spa feature is running or if it reaches the desired set temp.



I will say past renters have been kind enough to leave purchased pool toys behind for the next renters (feel free to pay-it-forward as well).



Beach Access:

The beach is literally across the street which is great for quick transitions from beach time to pool time in the middle of the day, a big convenience factor over other properties on the island. The owner has provided a pull behind beach wagon (large wheels to get through the sand). We were able to load up beach umbrellas, chairs, toys, towels, etc. for the whole family.



Overall Stay:

Many bedrooms had new furniture and flooring, which made the stay even better. The mold smell was gone from the 1st floor, issue resolved (concern of past renters). Unbelievable sunset views from master suite balcony, highly recommend sunset cocktail hour with the family on 2nd floor. Please email me with questions if you are seriously considering.

3rd Year at Aloha Baby, Booked for 2018!

  • 5 of 5

Our 3rd trip to Aloha Baby and we're booked for 2018! The family and kids unanimously decided this is a place we want to visit year after year.

I posted a review a few years ago and feel many of the comments should be noted again. The biggest note since the last review is the change in the local management company. Kingfisher has been exceptional!

Check-In Process:

Aloha Baby is under new management for the owner and the change was definitely needed. The new management company has simplified the process for checking in/out, not as daunting as the previous company.

The house was ready to go upon arrival. The management company had a crew onsite fixing a few items which the property owners wanted to have done. It only improved the property from our point of view.

Pool and Hot Tub:

Both the pool and hot tub were the highlight of kids and adults. Definitely worth the cost when comparing beach houses with and without the amenities. Pool has a heater, which is great for the winter months when the day time heat isn't as hot. I will say past renters (including our family) have been kind enough to leave purchased pool/beach toys behind for the next renters (feel free to pay-it-forward as well). We definitely benefited from others this year.

Game Room/Theater Room:

Game room has air hockey and a pool table, a great hit with the kids on two rainy days and evenings. Since our last stay they have purchased a ping pong table which is in the garage, also a big hit.

Theater room was popular for watching Saturday and Sunday football. It's a good idea to have management walk through operation of the theater electronic system, it's been upgraded since last stay. A little cumbersome, but manageable.

Beach Access:

The beach is literally across the street which is great for quick transitions from beach time to pool time in the middle of the day, a big convenience factor over other properties on the island. The owner has provided a pull behind beach wagon (large wheels to get through the sand). We were able to load up beach umbrellas, chairs, toys, towels, etc. for the whole family.

Restaurants/Bars/Island Activities:

Everything is within walking distance, a car is not needed once on the island but can be helpful. There are bikes to use and a 5-person golf cart to rent, which we do each year, totally worth it for large groups!

Thanks Kingfisher and Roger (owner) for another great stay!

Beautiful Spacious Villa in Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

Just home from 2 weeks in Aloha Baby. Two families - 9 people, with the youngest being 16.

The villa is really spacious, with plenty of different areas to allow for those wanting solitude, but also perfect for coming together as a group. Very well furnished and equipped, the villa met all our needs.

The location is excellent, with what feels like a private section of beach just across the road. A short walk from the Captiva shops and restaurants, which meant that we could eat out without anyone needing to drive.

The first coffee of the morning sipped while sitting on a (provided) beach chair looking for dolphins in the ocean and watching crabs digging in the sand while sandpipers trot along the waters edge and pelicans and osprey fly overhead is pretty special.

We contacted Kingfisher about a couple of tiny matters, and both were resolved the same day. They are very responsive - thank you Kingfisher.

If you are looking for a comfortable, spacious villa for a large group, with easy access to the beach, shops and restaurants of Captiva, then I'm not sure you'll find better.

Loved Aloha Baby

  • 5 of 5

We recently had the pleasure of spending a week with our kids and grandkids at Aloha Baby. The house is beautiful and we loved the proximity to the beach. Our kids, their spouses and our grandkids enjoyed every minute we stayed there. (The grandkids are young enough that they thought we had moved and were all living together for the rest of our lives.) The house was very comfortable and each evening we gathered on the master bedroom deck to watch the sunset. What a lovely view! We did our fair share of cooking and found the kitchen to be adequate for our needs. The golf cart was a fun way to take a short trip to surrounding restaurants. We spent most afternoons in the pool cooling off. The tv room was a nice touch for late night viewing. Aloha Baby is a great place to stay and we hope when we are ready to return that it will be available!

Aloha Baby is a gem!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Aloha Baby...and was as excellent as the 1st time. We had 8 adults and 2 kids and this house is perfectly outfitted to support that size family. The location is ideal...the beach is across the street and is limited to people staying in houses along that stretch of the beach...which translates to small crowds. Golf cart access to shopping, bars, and restaurants makes it easy to get around. The pool at the house offers a great break from the beach if it gets too hot...the management company overseeing the property is very responsive..we called about an issue with the pool and one of the showers...and someone was at the house within an hour to remedy both issues...highly recommend this property..

Great Location and Beautiful House

  • 4 of 5

This house has it all - location, house amenities and space. The family loved all there was to do both within the property and in the area. As you would expect, the rate was high, but as the property had so much to offer and the house easily accommodated our entire family, everyone had a great time. In order to give this house a 5 rating, to justify the price (in my opinion) a few details such as house updates (decor and carpet was old and dated, musty), bedding and pillows (the master bedding barely fit the bed and should have been replaced, as were the pillows in all the bedrooms were very flat). With the right attention and a bit more investment, this could be a perfect house. AL

Stunning home from top to bottom

  • 5 of 5

Aloha Baby was perfect for 3 families and 4 very active cousins. Everyone had their own space which included a bunk room for the kiddos. The home theatre was a real bonus for family movie night. The pool was perfect for squirt gun wars and romping with the blow up turtle and haters.

Everyone had their own dining porch for dinners, kids on the main floor and adults on the upper level for cocktails, dining and stunning sunsets.

We took advantage of the golf cart on our many trips around the island which the kids loved.

We spent lots of time on the beautiful beach riding the surf and fishing. The cart and beach equipment provided left us wanting nothing.

It was the perfect place to celebrate our 50 years of marriage with our beautiful family.

Thank you Roger and Kingfisher for the perfect memory.
