Barefoot Way

5 Bedrooms


5 Baths


Sleeps 10


7 Day Stay


Barefoot Way is a beachfront estate house on the gold coast section of Captiva Island. Fully remodeled! Follow the delightful path through tropical plantings, past tall palms, whispering pines, and the beachside gazebo, to the amazing beach:  white sand, refreshing Gulf water – and it feels like it’s all your own, in this sparsely-populated area.


The large heated private pool is surrounded by a sun patio and shaded outdoor lounging areas. Opening onto the pool deck is the lower-level recreation room with  ping pong and a kitchenette.


On the main level, the house has that rare combination of luxurious comfort and grand formality. Ten-foot coffered ceilings, eight-foot solid doors, gleaming columns, and crown molding. The huge premium windows let in plenty of tropical light to fall on sensible furnishings, a high-function kitchen, an assortment of break-out spaces, all-suite bedrooms, and thoughtful details.


The west side rooms all have views of the beach, and the large screened lanai will be a favorite spot for shady retreats,

sunset cocktails, and dining.


The main level surrounds a two-story great room, with huge windows capitalizing on the beautiful Gulf beach views. A formal sitting area enjoys cheerful natural light in front of a stone-faced chimney (sorry, fireplace not available).

Just off the great room (to the northwest) is a big, cozy den. Broad windows overlook the beach, and a side door opens onto the screened lanai. The den has its own full guest bathroom with a shower.

Heading south from the great room is the main dining table (seats eight easily),and the wet bar with icemaker and mini-fridge. The  island has additional  seating… also serving as “spectator seating” for activities in the big kitchen.

The kitchen is completely remodeled with new cabinets, countertops, and appliances.  Work flows easily around the central island with its ample counter space. Equipment includes a built-in oven and microwave with an induction range, two dishwashers, and a warming drawer.

For casual dining, the breakfast room (seats 8) is adjacent to the kitchen and enjoys a beach view through an expanse of new windows. Continue out the side door onto the screened lanai for a really unbeatable expanse of beach view. Here is a large outdoor dining table (seats 8) and a lounge area with seating and tables. Ceiling fans keep the breezes going on the lanai during the heat of the day.

There is a large powder room (guest half-bath) beyond the wet bar. Near the kitchen is a laundry room with a full-size washer/dryer, a laundry sink, storage cabinets, and a flip-down ironing board. And of course, the elevator takes you smoothly and quietly to all three floors.

Downstairs is another delight: The large recreation room is equipped with a ping pong table, a kitchenette with a built-in mini-fridge, icemaker, sink, and plenty of cabinets and counter space. A high-top dining table invites you to enjoy snacks, puzzles or a card game. There is also a sleeper sofa, a full bath and laundry room. Multiple doors open onto the large pool/spa and sun patio, with covered lounging areas and gas grill.

Three suites share the upper level.

In the northeast is a bedroom with a bunk bed, and a private lanai on the north side of the house. There are two full closets, with. an en-suite bath (tub shower).

In the northwest (with a water view) is a king suite with a walk in closet, and an entrance onto the upper-level sundeck. The en-suite bath has a step-in oversized shower.

In the southeast is a queen bedroom and a lovely sitting area surrounded by windows. It has a walk-in closet and en-suite bath with tub shower.

On the main level are two more bedroom suites.

In the northeast is a king bedroom with a private lanai on the north side of the house. It has a walk in closet, and an en-suite bathroom with a corner step-in shower.

In the southeast is a suite with two full beds, a closet, and an en-suite bathroom with a step-in oversize shower.
