About the property

4 Bedroom, 2.5 Bath Home 400ft From The Beach With Panoramic Water Views.

Runway Chalet is a lovely 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath home with a panoramic water view of Pine Island Sound, the Intercoastal Waterway, Safety Harbor, and the Gulf of Mexico. This home sits up very high and also affords a great view of the island vegetation. The best views are from the top level observation room with exterior decks on three sides that overlook the Gulf and Sound. This room, with a full bed, also doubles as a bedroom.

Runway Chalet was extensively remodeled and professionally decorated in 2005 and has stylish, updated furnishings. One floor below the observation room, you will enjoy a tastefully decorated livingroom with a large screened balcony that extends the living space outdoors to take advantage of the beautiful natural scenery and tropical island atmosphere. The kitchen has all stainless steel appliances with corian countertops and there are lovely tile floors throughout.

The master bedroom with a king bed, large walk in closet, and luxurious master bath are located one floor below the main level. The master bath is equipped with a large garden tub as well as a walk in shower. Two additional bedrooms, one with a queen bed and the other with two twin beds, as well as a second full bath are also located on this level.

Our stay at Runway Chalet was everything we hoped it would be. Beautiful sunrise and sunsets. Choices of beaches and activities were nearby. The house was perfect for our family and everything it was advertised to be.

Amazing Stay at Runway Chalet

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed staying on North Captiva in this beautiful home. The views of the ocean and runway was amazing. The house had everything we needed. Greg, the owner, was very accommodating and helpful. We were able to bring our boat and dock nearby. Overall, we had a wonderful experience and would highly recommend this Chalet to others.

Runway Chalet

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay at the Runway Chalet. The location was amazing, the house was awesome. It had everything you could possibly need in it including beach towels! Greg (the owner) was super nice and met us at the boat, helped us unload our stuff and showed us around his beautiful home. Highly recommended! We had a perfect week here!

time of our life!

  • 5 of 5

We are so glad we picked the Runway Chalet for our stay at N Captiva. The views (oh the views!!!) and the location were glorious. We were able to see both sunrise and set within a short walk and from the decks of the home. We were walking distance to restaurants, rentals, and a small beach. We had regular visits from dolphins at the nearby bay! We were impressed with the essentials supplied in the home, which made our trip worry free. The home was great for 3 couples plus children and the owner was wonderful to work with and helped us navigate the stay with ease. I cant wait to return!
