About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Beautifully furnished original beach cottage on North Captiva Island. Private tropical setting on a quiet lane just 500' from one of the Gulf's most spectacular beaches. The island is only accessible by boat or private plane. A golf cart is included with the rental for exploring the island. The two bedroom two bath cottage has a deck and an outside shower. This is a great rental value for two couples or a family looking for a relaxing holiday.

Local Description: With 60% of the island protected as a state park preserve, swimming, shelling, fishing, and bird watching are favorite activities. Guides are available for fishing trips and a water taxi can take you to Sanibel or Captiva Island. Visit the beautiful beach at Cayo Costa and have a 'cheeseburger in paradise' at Cabbage Key. There are only two restaurants and grocery shopping is limited. Stop at Publix on the way to the ferry or have your groceries delivered to your vacation home.

  • 5 of 5

Toni & Mike's place was perfect. Our first time in North Captiva. Toni made it easy. Gave advice beforehand, picked us up at dock, showed us around the island before leaving. We had an amazing week. The house is everything we needed and nothing we didn't. Cozy 2BR/2BA. Quiet & secluded but very close to beach. Deck w grill. Kitchen with everything you need. Linens including beach towels. Washer, dryer. Internet. Outdoor shower. Golf cart. Membership to NCIC (2 pools, hot tub, kayaks, tennis, bikes - all at your disposal).

If you are first timers like us, island has enough amenities to get you through if you don't plan perfectly.

We plan to return and even started discussing retirement plans...

A wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at a house called Nibblin on Sponge Cake on the island of North Captiva, Florida. The house had everything we needed and the owners were absolutely fabulous, prior to, during and upon leaving the island. Thank you.
