About Mindy Strand
Moved to South Florida 8 years ago from Texas and absolutely love it! Sunshine year round and beautiful white sandy beaches. We own and manage a small group of vacation properties on Ft Myers Beach and North Captiva Island. Live here full time, work here part time :) Once I moved here I became a Real Estate Broker and specialize in helping others relocate to the area or find the perfect vacation rental investment property. So if you get down here and decide its where you want to be, I can help you find your next dream home in paradise!
Mindy Strand purchased this House in 2016
Why Mindy Strand chose Captiva
Best location on the island, hands down! Located at the point of the island overlooking Captiva Pass, here you have your own private beach with dolphins jumping, perfect sunsets and star gazing at night. No sharing the beach like you would on some other parts of the island, this is your own private paradise!
What makes this House unique
Your very own beach to relax in peace, undeveloped preserve across the street and private residences on both sides, no other rentals so you will always have tons of privacy!
Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.
Lovely stay and location
Just returned from our stay at Rainbows End 6/10-6/15. We loved the location and closeness to the water. If we ever went back a beachfront home would be a must because I think the bugs would be too bad anywhere else (minimal bugs at Rainbows end).
Great things about the property:
1. Location-the beach is lovely right outside the back door. I will say we did see a shark very close to the shore on our last day there. It is Tarpon season right now so apparently that had something to do with it. They say the sharks won't bother you-I am not staying in the water to see if that's true. On another beach we got to get up close and personal with dolphins everyday which was awesome.
2. Number of outdoor amenities such as chairs, boogie boards etc.
3. Property Management was wonderful. Always willing to help with anything/questions. Duncan was awesome.
4. outdoor shower was nice to have
5. Inside was nice and clean. (I would not have adults sleep on the pullout sofa-mattress is thin and uneven. It was sufficient for two smaller kids that essentially sleep sideways).
Things to keep in mind. It's an island. I would say grocery planning is huge. Planning out each meal and recognizing since there is not a lot to do on an island other that sunbathe, swim, and eat-bring everything you plan to eat plus more snacks and drinks!
Overall would recommend this house and definitely a Tortuga run property again. My personal preference is probably to go somewhere slightly less remote. For those looking for a getaway from everyone and everything this is the place.
The house is right on the beach, the screened in porch looks very to the clear waters, and there is constant sightings of Manatees, and Dolphins. The island is a place to relax and enjoy the water and the lushes vegetation around. I would highly recommend this property, it had everything we needed.
We packed our groceries well, but whatever we needed was a text message away, property managers purchased what we needed and delivered to us at the property.
Rainbow’s End was the perfect beach house for my family of five! Laurie and Duncan met us at the dock and made our check- in effortless. The house was clean and well appointed. There were plenty of games and beach toys for the kids, and seashells and sand dollars for miles. The screened in porch was a bonus and probably the most used room of the house. The sunset views were amazing and to see dolphins swimming right by our beach was spectacular. The North Captiva Island Club was a nice addition, providing pools, a pool bar with great staff, bikes, kayaks, and even manatees. There are so many positives the list could go on and on!
Wife caught a 2 foot shark off front porch and took home 2 billion georgeous shells and kids all smiles, top review possible!!
This location was perfect! The ocean view is breathtaking. We saw dolphins up close, there were plenty of shells to pick through, and accommodations were comfortable. The house was supplied with plenty of options from beach supplies to kitchen supplies. The island has plenty to offer besides beaches. We spent most of our time relaxing on the beach! Friendly people and staff, good food but expensive so plan for many meals at home. We stayed 7 nights and had one night out for dinner at Over The Waterfront. Chef was very friendly and funny, food was amazing! Mindy was great to work with, she checked on us during our stay to see if we needed anything. Duncan and Laurie were helpful when we needed something fixed or ran out of something, they were quick to meet our needs. We will definitely be back! Beautiful beyond description.
Great place great people. Loved it!
