About The Owner

Mike and I started vacationing on North Captiva about 17 years ago. As a soccer mom and dad in Atlanta the island was just what we needed to recharge after carpooling four girls to their matches. No cars or car pools, just a golf cart and a spectacular beach! We would love to share paradise with your family.

The Owner purchased this house in 2008

Why The Owner chose Florida

After vacationing on the island for so many years we decided to buy a house.We fell in love with Watchin the Sun Bake. It is a great house with a club membership. Now we are sharing the island with our children, son in laws, and grand daughters. Grab your swim suit and flip flops and discover what island living is all about!

What makes this house unique

Time on the island will lower your blood pressure!

Prefect Spot!

  • 5 of 5

The location of the cottage is right in the middle of the island homes. It's within steps of the beach and minutes from anywhere on a golf cart. Definitely on my to do list to return.

Relaxing and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

If what you want from a vacation is sun, sea, relaxation and all the comforts you need to help you enjoy that then this rental is for you. The owners, Toni and Mike were, once again, extremely helpful and accommodating and the house gave us an excellent base with everything we needed for a great vacation. North Captiva is one of those places that you want to keep secret yet shout about because it is so fantastic if you like relaxing by the pool, walking on the beach or watching the sunset as you fish from the shore. If you like night life and action then perhaps this place is not for you but this was our fifth visit to the island and second to this house and we are already looking forwards to a return trip next year.

Great find with awesome host!

  • 4 of 5

Toni's property is well decorated, comfortable and in a great location. Just a short walk from a private and pet friendly beach, the property includes beach chairs, umbrellas and towels too. Toni is a wonderful host, and her property is just as wonderful! Thanks for making our family--and our dog--feel at home!

Great house just steps from the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house. It's beautifully decorated, clean, has an updated kitchen, and is so close to the beach. Our kids absolutely loved it! We had a great family vacation and especially enjoyed the golf cart travel, the Safety Harbor pool, and of course the ocean. It was so convenient to catch beach sunsets and easy to haul our little ones, sand toys, beach chairs, etc... since this house is so close to the water. North Captiva is a great place for a family vacation because you get a chance to spend quality time with your family members on this secluded island! The owners were also great and addressed all of our needs during our two-week stay. We can't wait to go back!

watchin the sun bake

  • 4 of 5

Our trip started off with rain, but ended with fabulous weather. House was ok. You could not really see the gulf from the widows peak. Mosquitos were terrible. Bug spray will be needed the moment you step outside. House was ok. A little run down. Killed 2 palmettos in the house, but keep in mind it had been raining. ALOT. Not sure if I would stay in this house again.
