The elegant villa is surrounded by lush native and tropical landscaping – with all the beach and sun you can soak in. Our relaxing and exclusive getaway is only a few steps away from the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico, where the SUNSETS are awesome, the views phenomenal, the lazy days on the beach so easy ... and where life is beautiful.

The relaxed elegance of Bali Hi spills over with amenities. Our Gulf front estate offers OUTSTANDING, unmatched hospitality and service.

It was like having a private resort just for our family

We loved it. It was the ideal size for our 13 family members. The fully equipped kitchen, dual oven and outdoor grill was super handy for cooking thanksgiving dinner. Our kids loved it. We've been staying on Sanibel for years, and this was our first time on Captiva. We'll be coming back!

Owner's Response: We often have international guests arriving from all over the world, even from as far as New Zealand. These guests are among a number who flew over to review several venues only to select this unique estate to have their unique destination wedding and reception.

This estate has more tropical space, photo opportunities and more parking than any other private property, including many local resorts.

Two weeks in paradise again

  • 5 of 5
We have been on Bali Hi since 2004 every year. It is a large estate on the Gulf in one of the best locations on Captiva Island with very quiet neighborhood and all modern amenities (such as pool, Internet and TV). Affordable Restaurants (partly with live music) are just 5 minutes away. The beach is one of the best with good shelling. The owner and his staff take care of all arising issues in a very friendly and capable way. It is a very good place to take a rest. But if you want shopping, the more crowded Sanibel and the main land are nearby.

Owner's Response: Joachim and his family have been staying with us at our 250' beach-front estate for two dozen weeks in over a decade. Traveling from Germany to Captiva every year, they speak volumes about the beauty and desirability of our Captiva Island. One of our best guests of a number of 10 yr. repeat guests. Families, business groups, reunions and weddings have been kept very happy at the estate. All of these and more love the comfortable and lush tropical beach-front property. With three acres and innumerable amenities, the privacy, seclusion and comfort of the guests is more than met with this estate.

For my birthday, my amazing husband booked Bali Hi. We had 18 in our group ranging in age from 20 months to over 60. The kids were aged 20 mos, 3,4,5,6,10,18 & 20. Everyone had a blast!!

The home is amazing and the photos do NOT do it justice. Simply gorgeous in and out with the most amazing landscaping on the island. Complete privacy in all directions. We usually had the beach all to ourselves as well. The shelling was so much fun too.

The kids have taken 2 days just to sleep since we returned home from all of the fun.

We definitely plan to return, for longer, according to my kids.

2 thumbs WAY up...just don't take our weeks ;)

Owner's Response: Bali Hi is designed to have fun in the sun or shade. With so many loyal repeat guests, the wonderful families who have stayed with us for over ten years have added quality to our lives. Add one many times repeat guests said, you're not landlords, you're our friends. Watching so many of the beautiful children growing up around us each year, we feel like they're our family.

My family of 18, ranging in age from 76 to 10 weeks, left Bali Hi just this morning with all saying. "If only a few more days..." An exotic, tropical, beautiful property with exceptional amenities and activities for all ages. From the fabulous 40 by 20 foot pool and comfortable patio and sunbathing area to beach volleyball and chess to the playground for the little ones to hammocks for the book lovers to the beach and Gulf for shelling to swimming and kayaking, Bali Hi has it all. I loved feeling as though we were in our own private paradise, yet we could venture off biking to the charming village not far away or on to Sanibel for shopping. We were carried off from life's stressors and relaxed. A truly beautiful vacation to celebrate my 70 th birthday with my wonderful family.
