Great family vacation spot

  • 5 of 5
Our first stay at Bali Hi was a great week with my 8 children, son-in-law and 2 grand kids. The owners thought of everything from games to kayaks to beach toys galore. The pool is amazing, the walk out to beach level off the deck is so nice, the landscape is beautiful. Many unique features and hidden treasures.

Owner's Response: It's nice hearing from so many families that have been coming for years, some as many as 11 years straight. However, it's always great to have new families discover Bali Hi and appreciate the extra effort we take to maximize the memories and fun had by children of all ages. Thanks, we hope to see you again!

Bali Hi was just amazing. Our family loved the private beach, the play area and the pool area. We also enjoyed all the spaces outside to hang out and grill. The house and guest house was spacious and comfortable. Thank you for your great service. We had a wonderful time!

Amazing place

  • 5 of 5
Usually the photos are tweaked to make a villa look better than it is but this is the opposite: the photos do no justice to how great this place is. The house, the landscaping, the beach, the pool and the great service by the owner and caretakers are nothing short of amazing. We had a great time with our family of all ages celebrating my dad's birthday. We'll be back!

Owner's Response: There is little we can say besides, "thanks for a great review!" Oh yes, and we're working on updating our pictures and hope we can do more justice to our Bali Hi.

Mom's memorial family vacation

Mom's memorial family vacation
  • 5 of 5
We had 11 adult family members, 3 toddlers, and one baby at the home for a memorial service for a family member that had passed away earlier. The location was terrific with the beach close by and a wonderful yard full of things to keep the youngsters busy, yard chess set and kid's jungle gym in particular, not to mention the pool and hot tub. Multiple big decks allowed us to cluster the outdoor furniture so that the entire group could enjoy the outdoors all together. The bedroom arrangements allowed us the flexibility to handle everyone's needs including parents' sleeping preferences for their children. The main house had has enough prior use that we were not overly concerned about damage from toddlers dragging plastic wagons and riding toys around. The second smaller unit was perfect for "getting away" at times when the children were their most active.

The location is not particularly convenient for shopping and more than an hour away from the Ft Myers airport and local traffic on Captiva and Sanibel can be sluggish and frustrating. However, there are a variety of activities close by but all require a car to get to them.

We rented both buildings on the property which worked quite well for the number of people that we had. Renting only one could be awkward if the other was rented to another party. Whether this would ever happen is a question for the rental agents.

Owner's Response: A question was suggested re renting the Main house and Guest house separately. They have never been rented to different parties; one may rent the Main house only if there are fewer than 14 guests and the Guest house is optional. But, the Guest house is and has always been kept vacant if those renting the Main house don't rent it, We do NOT rent guest house and Main house separately.

We pride ourselves on offering a full range of activities for our guests from 1 to 101. Great that guests appreciate the plays set and toy chests full of toys for kids of all ages. Equally great when they discover the fun of beach volley ball, team chess in the sand, boccie ball and horse shoe pitch, to name a few. The property is not just close to the beach, it is on the beach. The wonderful wrap around deck is ground level to the pool, one small step to the sand on the gulf side and elevated several steps in the front with an adjoining ramp for wheel chairs and rolling suit cases.
The property is about 35 miles from the airport. Captiva and Sanibel are islands connected to the mainland by a causeway with the closest "city" or "urban center" being Ft. Myers. As is typical of all barrier islands, in season traffic on the causeway and Sanibel can be slower, but Captiva is generally never traffic bound with only 1,200+ homes and limited commercial shopping a traffic back up is very rare and even then only minutes of delay.
True, we have only a few grocery stores, a dozen or so restaurants, a few galleries, shops, etc. but nearby Sanibel and Ft. Myers do offer larger scale shopping and there are two reasonably sized super markets on Sanibel.

Ideal location for our group...

  • 5 of 5
We were a group of 11 childhood friends gathering from across the USA to celebrate a milestone birthday. I don't believe we could have chosen a better property. It is spacious, well supplied, well equipped and comfortable.

The village is about a fifteen - twenty minute walk on the beach, and Sanibel about the same distance the opposite direction. Our morning routine included a walk to one end of the island or another every day. Our nightly routine had us eating dinner on the back deck (love the deck that wraps around the entire house) and then dashing to the Gulf water's edge in time to watch for the "green flash" at sunset - yes, we did see it!

The beach is immaculate, the Gulf fabulous and the property beautifully landscaped - with plenty of spaces to be alone, gather in small groups or as one large group. Even with rain our first day, we were able to play outdoors because of the wonderfully heated pool and hot tub. Kids will love the giant chest board and play set.

Just to clarify, there are three dedicated bedrooms in the main house - all very spacious, each with its own bathroom. Yes, there is another room that can be a bedroom, but understand that it is a combination bedroom/office (again, with its own bathroom) which works very well. The guest house has two additional bedrooms. I believe all of us "senior citizens" were very comfortable.

The staff was very responsive, via e-mail and in person. One of the staff was kind enough to return when not scheduled to in order to take photos of our group for us.

We would return to Bali Hi in a heartbeat! Enjoy!

Owner's Response: One point of clarification, we have since converted the combination office/bedroom into a dedicated bedroom. With a complete queen bedroom set, yes, and a king sized trundle. Thus there are 4 Main house bedroomd and 2 guest house bedrooms. And, of course, 6 full bathrooms.
What else can I say? This guest, like all of our guests, just loved our beautiful three acre beach front estate.

Owner's Response: When guests state that we have great access to the beach, that is a segue for us to emphasize that
that this estate property actually sits 100% on the beach; guests step down one step off our wrap around deck and they are stepping in beach sand.
Family reunions, wedding receptions and events of all kinds are always a huge success at this 3 acre beach estate with over 250' gulf frontage. However, our mainstay is extended families and family vacations, which always prove to be extraordinary.

We are hearing the idea of Bali Hi being a private resort over and over. Of course, we are exclusive to the one family or group which rents Bali Hi for their own. And we do now say, "Bali Hi is resort like."
*Some minor construction renovation has allowed us to accommodate up to 23.
