Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Jose's Hideaway - Serendipity - 5 Star Home

4BR Oceanview Vacation Rental North Captiva Island, Florida USA

Serendipity means a 'fortuitous happenstance' or 'pleasant surprise'. It was first coined by Horace Walpole in 1754. In a letter he wrote to a friend Walpole explained an unexpected discovery he had made by reference to a Persian fairy tale, The Three Princes of Serendip. The princes, he told his correspondent, were “always making discoveries, by accidents and sagacity, of things which they were not in quest of”.

Enjoy one of North Captiva Island’s Best vacation homes offered. Serendipity is a fabulous 4 bedroom home with incredible Gulf of Mexico views!. This amazing home has it all! From the moment you arrive you will be mesmerized by the wonderful appointments, furnishings, amenities and sweeping views of the Gulf of Mexico. The home has 2800 square feet under a/c with more than 4000 square feet of living space including open and screen decks. It was renovated and professionally decorated from top to bottom in February 2014. Most everything in this home is brand new including AC units and the pool heater!

Serendipity has a private screened pool area just steps to the beach. This home is built for island living and setup for large multi-generational families. North Captiva is an amazing place to explore and Serendipity is equipped with two golf carts to explore the island.

Relaxing in luxury

  • 5 of 5

This beautifully decorated and fully stocked home was loaded with everything you could imagine needing. The mattresses are as comfortable as a Trump Hotel, which led to some very restful nights. The views from this home are the most beautiful I've seen. Being right next to the ocean, I could view both the sunrise and sunset as well as hear the tide rolling in and see dolphins swim by. The house was loaded with everything needed to prepare meals as well as a wine fridge. I enjoyed the design of the home which while allowing for hosting many people it provided private areas to retreat to. There were private decks off of two bedrooms, as well as one off the kitchen, one off the living room, another off of the loft and my favorite one on the roof. It does get a bit buggy there so it was nice to take cover in the many screened in areas, including the pool. It was also very easy exploring the island using the two provided golf carts. I would recommend this beautiful home for anyone wanting to enjoy the finer things and relax.

Spectacular 360 Degree Views

  • 5 of 5

Unbelievable home. The owners thought of everything plus to make our stay effortless.

All we had to do was unpack & go have fun, relax and enjoy. Serendipity is a four star

home with upgrades unexpected down to the finest details. Several large decks

with comfortable seating options made our choices plentiful. The 360 degree views

from the large top deck is great for watching the amazing sunrises & sunsets over the water. We enjoyed walking miles of the white sand beaches, fresh air and sunshine.

The wildlife is plentiful from the beautiful beach birds, dolphin watching to the friendly manatees Driving the golf carts around the island sightseeing was so exciting. Kayaks, Bicycles, swimming, fishing, touring, tennis, hiking, a little something for everyone. The lush greenery & flowering bushes on this tropical island were gorgeous. We enjoyed the local restaurants and fresh seafood and the friendliness of the island. We fell in love with

this vacation & will recommend it to everyone we talk to. It is that amazing.

Wonderful home - owners have thought of everything

  • 5 of 5

Serendipity is a beautiful home that is well designed, furnished and maintained. The kitchen was full of modern amenities and well stocked. The owners provided a nice selection of pool/beach toys, chairs and towels, which was extremely helpful. The reverse layout of the home provided for outstanding views and the location was great - very close to a nice private feeling portion of the beach. Our only hiccup was with two (of the many) sliding doors which we were unable to lock in the evenings or when we were away, although we understand these are being addressed. Overall we had a near perfect family vacation at Serendipity and plan to be back!

One of the best!!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect house! Perfect pool! Perfect location! Perfect views! Perfect vacation!

Rarely does everything go so well on vacation, especially when you have 10 people, but this truly was one of our best! The house was so comfortable and had everything we would need for the week. Having the pool was such a plus! We spent everyday in it. The beach was just a short walk away- great for the early morning walks and that roof top sun deck!! The views from it of the sunsets were stunning!!! Having the 2 golf carts was great as well! We went on a fishing trip, ate fresh seafood from the local fish market, and enjoyed a meal at Barnacle Phil's. It is a beautiful place to slow down, unplug, and enjoy the family! We loved our time at Serendipity!!!
