About Dan

We have now owned and managed our vacation rental home on Captiva Island since 2003. We operate Millertime Villa as a business and our main focus is providing a comfortable, clean home with lots of amenities so that our guests will have a memorable, relaxing Captiva Island vacation. Many of our guests return year after year. We live in SW Iowa and personally inspect (and enjoy!) our home at least four times a year.

Dan Miller purchased this house in 2003

Why Dan chose Captiva

Captiva Island provides a year round world class vacation destination that is hard to find anywhere. As a rental unit the location provides the opportunity to stay fully booked throughout the year.

What makes this house unique

We all know a "place like Cocomo" as the Beach Boys song goes. Well Millertime Villa is it!

Guestbook comments from the manager

"This home is so wonderful we just got back from a week and wished we had booked two! The pictures do not do it justice. The location is absolutely perfect, beach was a minute away and the Mucky Duck a short walk (maybe 5 minutes tops) on the beach, same to downtown. We have two toddlers and the home was set up really great for them and pool has a very secure gate that allowed us to let them play on the lanai without us worring they would get into the pool area! The house itself is beautifully decorated and the layout is so spacious it really lends itself to relaxing dinners or cocktails with a few friends - with plenty of space for the kids to keep them occupied but within earshot. We very highly recommend "Millertime" for a great vacation spot! The Power Family"

Great 3 bedroom house w pool and walking distance to captiva restaurants.

  • 5 of 5

Had a great 1 week stay at Miller time with family. The screened pool is amazing and location near beach (4 houses away) and restaurants is perfect. The large master bedroom with updated private bathroom was a really nice treat. We cooked a lot and the kitchen was generally good but we would have appreciated sharper cooling knives - the current ones are mostly dull such that cutting anything takes a lot of work.

Great Location and Pool!

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed at MillerTime from May 19-26, 2018. We loved the location! It was on quiet side street and convenient to anywhere in Captiva and just steps away from an uncrowded beach. The house was very clean and nicely decorated inside. The kitchen had everything you needed for cooking and there was also an outdoor gas grill with two tanks of propane. We enjoyed the screened porch in the back of the house which had a dining table and additional seating. The pool was great too and seemed like it was brand new! There were beach chairs and a cart to haul your stuff to the beach. There were a few minor issues but nothing big. The hot water in the master shower was only luke warm so we used the other bath for showers. I found the master bed a little soft for my back so we slept in the other bedroom where the bed was fine. The posting said the house had a stereo which it did not. We like to listen to music for happy hour and dinner so I drove to Ft Meyers to buy a portable speaker to connect to our phones. No big deal. Overall we really liked the property and it was very clean and also very private with all of the lush landscaping.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for taking the time to share your experience with us! We are so happy you enjoyed this home. We just wanted to note the master bathroom handle must be turned all the way for the hot water to be at its full force. The mattress in the master is new but we understand everyone has a personal preference. Thank you for the feedback about the stereo, it was recently removed and we corrected the listing. We do provide Comcast music channels in lieu of a stereo. Thank you again for staying with us and we look forward to working with you again in the near future! Kingfisher Vacations.

Mark this one a keeper!

  • 5 of 5

Millertime is even better in person. Everything is clean and well cared for. Having your own pool and the beach less than a block away make for the perfect location.

The home is inviting. You feel right at home immediately. You can tell the owners take good care of the property. You have everything you need to enjoy your vacation including beach towels, chairs and laundry facilities.

The outdoor shower even was warm!

Owner's Response: Our remodeled master suite was just completed in October 2017 and includes a completely new much larger master bath with a spacious relaxing walk-in shower! The old bath is now a nice walk-in closet. Hope you can come down a check out all our new features.

My favorite place to stay on Captiva...for a very long time!

  • 5 of 5

The Millertime Villa is AWESOME! The location is fabulous...just a quick walk to the beach, shops, restaurants, and the marina. The house is meticulously clean, beautifully decorated, and stocked with whatever you need. The new master bath is beautiful, and everyone even commented on how comfortable the beds were. We always especially enjoy the pool and enclosed outside sitting area. I have stayed at the Millertime Villa many times with various friends, and it is the only place any of us ever want to stay in on Captiva. I'm never at a loss for friends who want to join me! Couldn't recommend a nicer place!

Captiva Island, located North of its sister island Sanibel and across the causeway bridge from Ft. Meyers, has an international reputation as a year around vacation destination. For 365 days a year vacationers can enjoy swimming and sunbathing at the Gulf beach just two doors away, or in our pool, heated to a comfortable 85 degrees. Both islands are world famous sanctuary islands, noted for their abundance of seashells, miles of natural undisturbed beaches, fascinating bird life and beautiful subtropical foliage. Add the intrigue of pirate legends, conquistadors, a unique Carribean atmosphere, and a secret getaway for celebrities and you can see why Captiva Island is a world class vacation destination. Best of all Millertime Villa is located in the heart of Captiva Village, close to everything fun!
