7 Day Stay
Almost Heaven is one incredible vacation house: spacious, professionally decorated in luxurious but sensible style, and in a great location. The property is quiet and private, yet convenient to the Captiva Village area restaurants, shops and activities (only a minute walk to the Green Flash Restaurant). The Gulf of Mexico beach is just one house away and the water can be seen from the master suite’s sunny balcony.

Rooms are large and bright, and some enjoy lovely views of the bay or Gulf of Mexico. The home has a heated pool with waterfall from the in-ground spa tub – all surrounded by a lovely sun patio and made private with dense tropical landscaping.
The kitchen is “to die for,” as you might expect at “Almost Heaven.” It just just been further upgraded to sweet perfection, with additional lighting, a premium built-in microwave oven, new cabinet fronts, a slide-out trash receptacle, and more. The kitchen windows look down on the pool patio below, as seen in the photos.

Almost Heaven is unusual for its extensive and smart deployment of state-of-the-art technology. Of course the house has unlimited telephone (USA) and wireless internet connectivity throughout the house. But the fun really begins with the entertainment systems.
First, there is an integrated, three-zone digital sound system (master suite, pool and patio, and main house). A built-in iPad provides touch-screen audio control and streaming digital content delivery – enjoy all the music in the world or even home-team sports broadcasts from radio stations across the globe. Sirius-XM is integrated, and you can log into your own Pandora (or similar) digital music account. Control it all from anywhere on the property using your iPad or iPhone. Just install the Sonos app and you have it all in your hand.
But it gets even better with multimedia! A new X-box gaming system is installed with the large HDTV in the great room. Bring your favorite games and your own controllers. Movies, HD sports, and other (cable) broadcast look and sound fabulous on the two home theater systems with professionally-tuned surround sound, big high-def TVs, and Blu-Ray. The setup in the great room is perfect for the larger audience, or retreat to the master suite sitting area for a separate screening in that superb home theatre setup. Even the bunk room has an enormous HDTV.
he master suite at Almost Heaven is its own grand oasis of luxury. Slumber in spacious comfort in the premium king-size bed, or read in bed propped against the bolster and throw pillows to the light of large lamps and recessed ceiling fixtures. A large, private balcony faces west (sunny in the afternoon) and looks down the short driveway to the Gulf of Mexico beach.
Technology is smoothly integrated in this suite, just like the rest of the house. From the spacious seating area, enjoy your private home theater system with built-in 5.1 surround sound and large HDTV. Even the spectacular master bathroom has a flat-panel TV. The master suite has a separate zone on the whole-house digital music system (control it via touch-screen on your iPad or iPhone).
The master bath includes an ample jet tub under the bright window (facing a tall privacy hedge of palms and other tropical landscaping). An oversize walk-in shower features a unique center-pivoting glass door and offers two spray systems (including hand held massage wand). Plenty of storage is provided in the extended vanity (with two sink bowls), and there is a separate, well-lit make-up area with cushioned seating.
Four other bedrooms provide spacious sleeping quarters for guests at Almost Heaven. In the southeast corner are the king suite on the main level and the twins bedroom on the upper level. The king has a private en-suite bathroom.
In the northeast corner of the upper level is the queen bedroom. The queen bedroom shares a large Jack-and-Jill bathroom with the twins bedroom on the upper level.
Also in the northeast corner is the bunk room on the main level. This cute room sleeps four with enough room for play, and it has a very large HDTV. It has an entrance into the main level guest bathroom, which can also be accessed from the hallway.
All of the Almost Heaven bedrooms are spacious and airy, with high ceilings and deluxe furnishings, large closets, chests of drawers, and all kinds of quality lighting.
