BLUE MANGO, Tropical Seclusion, Steps From the Beach

Bedrooms 2
Space 1,200 sq ft
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 5 - 7 nights


About the property

Only 100 feet from a 4-mile stretch of white sand beach, BLUE MANGO offers a very private, newly-renovated apartment nestled in the palms. This is a 1200 square foot apartment with a PRIVATE POOL and abundant decks. The owner maintains the upper apartment for themselves but will never be on island when you're there to intrude upon your vacation. Enjoy the indoor river stone shower, or the very large OUTDOOR, HOT/COLD SHOWER overlooking tropical lush surroundings. French doors in each bedroom open onto a large, PRIVATE DECK. The kitchen has granite counter tops and new appliances with an outdoor Weber gas BBQ by the pool.

North Captiva Island; where world-class fishing, boating, shelling, and sunsets await you. North Captiva is a true barrier island and is separated from the mainland by a 25-minute boat ride. No cars are allowed on the island and transportation is by golf cart or walking. Guests at BLUE MANGO enjoy a private pool, beach chairs, and a BRAND NEW 4-PERSON GOLF CART. While North Captiva is remote and secluded, that doesn’t mean you have to be completely disconnected. We offer UNLIMITED WIFI as well as SATELLITE TV and DVD PLAYER. Connect or disconnect…it’s up to you.

With Blue Mango, you will have no worries with a professional management team that works and lives ON ISLAND. Allow them to assist you with coordinating your flight and ferry schedule to assure you aren’t left wasting away your vacation sitting on the pier waiting on your ride. You will receive a welcome packet upon booking and they will be available to you for making any arrangements or answering any questions. In addition, our staff will be at the marina to greet you when you arrive to escort you and your belongings to your tropical paradise. TRUE CONCIERGE TREATMENT WITH NATIVE ISLAND WARMTH, they will help you get acquainted with your new home and answer any questions you may have before leaving you to finally sink your toes into the beautiful Gulf of Mexico.


Enjoy the world's best Tarpon and Snook fishing. Fire up the barbecue and cook your catch under the stars, or enjoy one of the island’s fine restaurants.

Exploring is a favorite past time. Try the nearby island of Cayo Costa, have lunch at Cabbage Key (a turn-of-the-century hotel, think Cheeseburger in Paradise), or shop on Sanibel or Boca Grande. FIND YOUR OWN PERSONAL BIT OF PARADISE.

Experience a vacation where island beauty and relaxation will surround you, where lazing in the hammock under the palms, or toasting the magnificent sunsets will awaken and revitalize you.

About Sarah Rapp

It has been a life-long dream to find a paradise home where we can relax, slow down from our busy schedules and enjoy our surroundings. We never knew a place like this existed until we found North Captiva Island. Finally a place where we can enjoy the beautiful landscape without the crowds, the high-rise hotels and the noise. Blue Mango called to us and we answered. We wish we could stay and never have to leave, but until then, we are happy to share this paradise with others. This isn't an investment business, it is our heart and sole. We have prepared Blue Mango exactly how we want to enjoy with a dash of luxury. We hope you love it as much as we do.

Sarah Rapp purchased this apartment in 2017

Why Sarah Rapp chose Captiva

North Captiva Island is such a rare place. We struggle with wanting to tell the world about it and how much we love it but at the same time, we want to keep it a secret. It's so quiet here you just can't help but relax. You can sit and do nothing or, you can have a different activity everyday. Island hopping, dolphin watching, hiking the nature preserve, shelling, fishing, enjoying a great meal, etc., etc. All of it's possible here with the rest of the world just a short ferry ride away.

What makes this apartment unique

This island is remote, yet accessible. We once stayed on an island that was "off the grid" and, even though we had generated power and bottled water, it was just a little too remote for us. On North Captiva, you can be as secluded and still as you want to be, or you can head to the tiki bar and make friends, get a gourmet meal, surf the internet from the deck, go catch fresh fish to grill OR HAVE IT DELIVERED!! North Captiva is very safe and even though we are a 25-minute ferry ride from the nearest hospital, we actually have a fire-station with EMTs 24/7 in the event of an emergency. Oh, and, have your own private plane? We have a landing strip for your use.

Fabulous House!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Blue Mango. This house is a fully equipped and colorful and comfy home. We loved the pool and all the equipment for the wonderful beach - which is just steps from the house. A really great location. We had great service from Tortuga Properties including golf cart rides and help with our bags/groceries from to and from the boat at Barnacles. We read lots of books, watched the Olympics, and just enjoyed walking the beach and watching the sunsets in the great weather. We enjoyed eating at the Mango Pool Bar and On the Waterfront. This was our first time on North Captiva, and we will be back!

Perfect escape to paradise without leaving US

  • 5 of 5

Dare I say it was a perfect vacation? What an incredibly charming island and house this is! The amenities were outstanding, very clean and well stocked. Lots of games, movies, etc. for down time inside. Pool was perfect for quick dips or just reading/sunbathing. Only a short walk to the white sandy beach with few people. Made it easy to get back and forth to house, especially with kids! Perfect for couples getaway or for family of 4 or 5. Owners were very accommodating and friendly. Island was small and felt very safe for kids to explore. Marinas had lively restaurants with welcoming staff. Lots of opportunities to see dolphins and sea turtles or collect fabulous shells! My kids are begging to return! It was the first time we've ever been on true "island time". HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

Great Location! Gorgeous 2 min walk to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Such a great way to spend a weekend getaway! Very roomy house with everything we could need and views that took our breath away. The beach was only a short 2 min walk but when we wanted to stay in, the heated pool was such a refreshing option. Perfect retreat!!

Christmas Holiday Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This beach house really has it all. There was a group of 4 of us who stayed and we just loved it. We bought over groceries to use during our stay but you can easily have them delivered to the house as well. The decor and layout was super charming and the appliances were all updated! It really has everything you need including games, cooking supplies, tv, etc. There is a really short walk to the beach which was amazing for sunrises and sunsets. Golf carts were provided so if we wanted to stop at the local club house restaurant, we could easily do so. There is also an amazing ice cream shop that we stopped at before we departed at Barnacles (little local restaurant where the ferry stops). We had constant check ins from the manager who was able to help us if we had any questions (amazing service). If you want to really unwind during a holiday, I would highly recommend staying here.
