Well for a 1 week rental, it's Captiva. Sanibel is a minimum of 28 days by city ordinance.

The biggest bang for the buck will be a near beach home. I'd suggest Laika Lane and Wightman, two private lanes that end at the beach. Start your search with Island Girl. 4 bed/ 3.5 bath and big pool 1 house in from the beach. On the other side of the village is Bird of Paradise, new to the rental market this year and about a 4 minute walk to the beach.

Beach front, and avoinding trophy homes, try Johnny B Good, Sea Star and Bali Hai estate. Maybe Barefoot Way.

Normally I'd say Saba Winds North and South, two near identiacl houses that share a lap pool on the beach that have just been completely renovated. The thing is, they are very near Blind Pass and it's scheduled for construction to reopen the cut next year. You don't want to be too near that.

I'd say off ANdy Rosse Lane, but that's a personal prefrence of mine for quiet. There are a number of new and luxe homes along there on narrow properties and all with pools and beach access at the end of the busy lane. Not my thing, but no denying they are upscale.

Look at www.royalshell.com and www.captiva-island.com for some of the best selections. There are some killer estates, but they can be as much as $17,000/wk, so know what you'll pay. Bird of Paradise and Island Girl will run around $3000/wk off-season. Beachfront places where as Sea Star has a total of 7 bed/6 baths in main and guest house, is a true beachy style place and will run around $9800/week for main+guest. And Bali Hai will run $8000 per week. Same owners and both have pools and are beach front.

Good luck and have fun!
