Lovingly decorated Florida beach cottage just 200 feet from the beach with spectacular, unblocked Gulf of Mexico views. Our fully air conditioned home offers three bedrooms and two and a half baths, with an open-concept living room/dining room/kitchen on the top floor. Experience sunset views over the Gulf of Mexico from your upstairs sundeck and screened-in porch in a comfortable rocking chair or at the outdoor dining table. Or if sunrises are your thing, head over to the east-end of the airstrip and beach for morning sunrises over Pine Island Sound.
And we now have our own 12'x24' private heated in-ground pool with a huge deck for sunning and just lounging!
We are located on the bridge-less barrier island of North Captiva, on the Gulf of Mexico, only a 30 minute boat ride from the mainland. The boat ride is one of the best parts of your adventure, getting into island-time, especially for the kids (or those of us that are still kids at heart)!
The Island is approximately four miles long and half a mile at its width with only 350 homes. Nearly two-thirds of the island’s 700 acres is a protected State Preserve and Wildlife Sanctuary, open to the public free of charge year-round. Around the island waters or the Preserve, you are likely to see manatees, dolphins at play, gopher tortoises, and bald eagles, pelicans and ospreys flitting around. If you are lucky you might catch a glimpse of the elusive Florida bobcat! You will absolutely enjoy all that we have to offer, since we are home to over 100 species of migratory birds and NO venomous snakes!
With our white sandy beaches stretching over 3 miles, our island paradise offers long, romantic walks and great shelling opportunities.
Privacy and seclusion is the way of life. There are no cars on the island and transportation is by golf cart, which is included in your rental.
Captiva Isles’s living room is fully equipped with a flat screen TV with satellite DirecTV and a networked DVD/CD player that will play Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, or other web-based TV entertainment. The kitchen is fully equipped with stainless steel appliances and a large selection of dishware, flatware, and cooking utensils.
Dock space, Jet-Skis, boats, paddleboards, bikes and fishing gear are also available for rental.
Just pack your shorts and bathing suits .... everything is casual for your stay in paradise!
