Property Details

Holley House - 322530

Captiva Island
from $464 night

Property Description

All our properties have contact free check-in, no need to stop at the office (or a stop light none of those here)!

Sanibel and Captiva islands are small beach communities accessible only by a single bridge and are very isolated with low population density. Remote, yet all the comforts of home plus the beautiful beaches are open. Two local groceries that offer delivery, Wi-Fi, cable television and plenty of space to work from home. Shelter safely in a fully sanitized property at an ideal location

Holley House is one of the southernmost houses on Captiva. This is the “Gold Coast” section of Captiva Island, famous for its secluded luxury estates and fantastic tropical surroundings. Down here the island is narrow: you live right on the water near Blind Pass (the bridge from Sanibel onto Captiva), and beach access is directly across the street. Your view encompasses a broad sweep of small, uninhabited keys as well as the northern tip of Sanibel Island. The Roosevelt Channel leads out to Pine Island Sound and the Intracoastal Waterway. There are very few visual clues that you haven’t landed on your very own tropical island!

Your visit begins with the blue and white Holley House sign on Captiva Drive, guiding you into the landscaped grounds (more than an acre). The gently curving driveway — just long enough for seclusion — leads you past palms and sea grapes to a circular drive with plenty of parking including shaded areas. Another area off the driveway is handy for additional parking or for storing your boat trailer(s).
The warm-hued house just glows in the tropical sunlight. Step inside to the spacious and beautifully-decorated main level. You’re drawn immediately to the large rear windows and the unique “round tower” screened lanai, both overlooking the water. Then gaze down at your large, private pool, with sunning patio and shell-lined path onto the private boat dock.

Guests love taking advantage of the Holley House waterfront location! Enjoy the ever-changing tides, and fish from the dock. Rent some kayaks by the day or by the week (or bring your own), and explore the ever-fascinating keys and mangrove-lined creeks right across the channel. It’s like having your own Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge only a few paddle-strokes from your vacation estate. Or use the dock as your home base for fishing and motor boating Captiva, Sanibel and the many other nearby islands. Plan on spending plenty of time on the awesome white-sand beach, sunning or swimming in the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico, hunting shells, or taking long walks and enjoying this part of paradise. Holley House has deeded beach access directly across Captiva Drive.

The living room is bright and spacious, with plenty of windows to let in the natural light. Comfortable seating enjoys views over the water, as well as the 55-inch HDTV (with HD DVR and DVD). Board games and puzzles can involve the whole family together – fun when retreating from the blazing sunshine or a tropical rain shower. A corner of the living room has been set up as a nice little office, with writing desk, phone, and chairs.

Holley House features an amazing screened lanai, capitalizing well on the lovely waterfront location. Just off the living room, this unique octagonal porch has a peaked roof and resembles a castle round tower. With a dining table, two side tables, and ten chairs, there is plenty of space for enjoying the Captiva environment within shelter.

The dining table is spacious for six, and there are two additional chairs that can be pulled up. A side cupboard holds interesting decorations. But the best part is enjoying the big views over the water!
Newly remodeled (2014), the kitchen is bright and modern. New cabinets, floor, and all new (2016) appliances make it a pleasure to use. Also remodeled on the main level is the powder room (half bath) off the entrance foyer. Rounding out the main level is a utility room with full-size clothes washer and dryer.

The four ample-sized bedrooms are on the upper level at Holley House. The master is on the southeast, with king bed and en-suite bathroom (step-in shower with seat). An HDTV is ceiling mounted for comfortable viewing from the bed.

The queen bedroom (in the northwest) has a flatscreen TV, large dresser, and a closet. The twins bedroom (in the northeast) has a flatscreen TV, lots of closet space, and wicker furniture including a dresser and two bedside tables. A cozy chair is perfect for relaxing in the nook, gazing over the water or reading a book borrowed from the shelf on the upstairs landing. The twins bedroom (in the southwest) has a glider seat as well as wicker chair and dresser, plus a closet. These bedrooms share the full bathroom, with tub-shower.

We loved the Holley House! Location is great with beach access directly across the street. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything needed to prepare all of our meals at the house. We really enjoyed the screen porch overlooking the bay. The layout of the house is smart and the property is well maintained.

We have rented and stayed at Holley House 4 /5 times and will continue to stay here when we visit Captiva. The first year we rented it we had we had 4 adults and 3 kids and though the house is larger than our family of 4 needs , we continue to rent it year after year. The pool is not accessible directly from the house. You have to walk down a set of stairs and go in the gate. For a family with young children, it is a level of safety we really need. It also is located on the bayside with a beautiful private dock. We fly in from California so we don’t have a boat, we just fish off the dock everyday which is which is perfect. It is not far from Blind Pass so the location is ideal- easy to get to Sanibel and easy to get to “downtown” Captiva. I love that the beach access is across the street from the driveway. We always go in the summer, the beach is never crowded thanks to no public parking anywhere nearby. As far as the house, it is very clean and maintained. The kitchen is fully equipped, the fridge is big and they actually leave space in the cabinets for food. The grill was replaced in the last couple of years, we have never had to request propane. The bathrooms were not in great shape the first couple of times we rented but they have been redone. There are TV’s in every room. The master bedroom with king tempurpedic mattress is so comfortable that we came home from vacation and bought one. One of the twin bedrooms has a pack n play and a rocker glider. There are books, puzzles, floaty toys, comfortable furniture inside and out. Our favorite area inside is the screened in porch. We eat dinner there each night and sit outside a play cards all evening. Ahhhh all of the fond memories have me missing Holley House! Rent this place, you will be happy you did.
