Or hop in your golf cart and drive 2 minutes to the beautiful resort pools, playground, tennis court and kayaks that are included with your rental. The lower level has a spacious and private outdoor shower for rinsing off after your day at the beach and a nice grilling area.

The upper level living areas are fully surrounded by screened decks. Enjoy a private lunch or take a nap in one of the chaises with just the sound of birds and surf to keep you company. Step inside to enjoy the open floor plan of the Day House and incredible height of the living space with the overlooking entertainment loft. The well-equipped kitchen has been fully renovated and features granite counter tops, 2 sinks and a bar that seats 3. The dining room table easily seats 6. The kitchen and dining area flows into the great room with plenty of comfortable seating and a 55inch flat screen TV, perfect for relaxing after a long day at the beach. There is also a full bathroom along with a full size washer and dryer in the Day House.

Your children will never want to leave the Entertainment Loft, which is accessed via a spiral staircase from the great room. Read a book or text friends from the window seats; start a game of Monopoly or one of the many other games provided at the home. This room also features a flat screen TV, Wii game console, DVD player, and a nice desk/work area for a quick check in to the office through the free Wi-Fi.

Don’t miss out on the best part of the day and the incredible panoramic island views from Sea N Stars crow’s nest. Take the outdoor spiral staircase up one more level to enjoy your bird’s eye view of the Island where you can sit and enjoy a glass of wine while watching amazing sunsets on the beach right in front of your home.

The master suite features a queen size bed and an ensuite full bath showcasing a very unique contemporary open shower. The master also has a beautiful built in wardrobe and a nice chair for reading. Bedroom two features a king size bed and bedroom three features a queen size bed with a spacious full bath separating the two. Designed for older children, the sleeping loft offers a cozy, nautical inspired space for late night chats and sleeping in till noon. Scale the vertical ladder up the wall to the teen loft and sail away to sweet dreams in the two twin beds patterned after boats. There are also two twin trundle beds in the loft. Please note this area is not suitable for children under 5.

Sea N Stars comes with a golf cart, covered parking and outdoor shower, perfect for rinsing off after a day at the beach.

For an additional fee, a slip may be rented at the new North Captiva Marina.

The caretakers will meet you at the dock, provide you with keys and drive you to the home while the Island Club ferry service transports your luggage and groceries to the home.

About North Captiva:

North Captiva is an un-bridged Island 7 miles off the coast of Ft. Myers in Southwest Florida. Fly into the Ft Myers Airport “RSW.” The Island can only be accessed by boat or small private plane with privileges at the airstrip. No gas vehicles are allowed, as the only mode of transportation on the island is by golf cart, bike or foot. This Island is not connected to Captiva and Sanibel.

The island is populated by private homes, and the remaining 2/3 of the Island is undeveloped state land great for hiking, discovering sand dollars or sun bathing on a deserted pristine piece of sand. Due to the remote nature of the Island, many forms of wildlife are present including several protected species. The beaches are white sand and feature some of the best shelling in the United States. North Captiva feels like your own private island where, on many occasions, you might be the only one on one of the finest stretches of beach in Florida.

Stunning House & Beautiful Island!

  • 5 of 5

I read all the wonderful reviews on this house and did my research about the island and am writing this to let you know to go ahead and book this place, you will love it! Our family stayed at Sea & Stars for one glorious week. We were met at the ferry dock by Pam (the caretaker) and she was so welcoming and friendly and we thought she was terrific. Our luggage was delivered by the North Captiva Island Ferry and we used Publix to pre-order and pick up our groceries on the way to the ferry. The house is just fabulous and in such a gorgeous tropical setting. The views and sunsets from the crow’s nest are stunning! We enjoyed the laid back atmosphere of the island and driving around on our golf cart. It was fun to just explore the island and all of the beautiful homes – each one has a unique name. There were no crowds or waiting in line on this vacation! It is only a short ride to the North Captiva Island Club where the pool is located as well as Mango’s pool bar. They had great food and drinks and the pool area was lovely and clean. Be sure to look around the piers at Mango’s as that is where we saw manatees on each visit. We used the kayaks at the club and the bikes are also included with the house rental. We enjoyed biking to Barnicle’s for ice cream and live music. The beach is a very short walk from the house and we were thrilled to see dolphins while we were swimming in the ocean. Don’t worry about packing inner tubes or boogie boards as they are already at the house (there were 4 of each). My only advice is to pack light and put on bug spray if you are going out at dusk. Also, don’t worry about packing movies like I did as there were plenty to choose from at the house. We were there the week of the 2016 Summer Olympics so we enjoyed watching that each evening on the big screen TV and relaxing on the comfy furniture. We hope to return to this tropical island paradise again someday!

Beautiful Home on an Incredible Island

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this home with two families that have a total of 6 kids ranging from 5 to 12. The pictures do not do this fabulous home justice. Upon arrival we were met by the property manager's husband and our 2 golf carts. He drove us through what looked like paradise, the island exceeded our expectations! Our bags arrived moments later because we used NCIC to ferry us over. The house was decorated perfectly. The attention to detail and the cleanliness made us feel relaxed and ready to enjoy. We all slept very well as there were plenty of comfy beds to go around. There are pretty much two master bedrooms because one has a king and the other has a queen with an artsy on-suite bathroom. Every mattress was brand new and covered with waterproof pads and great pillows. There were even extra blankets for lounging around the house. We loved that the kitchen had an entire drawer full of spices and plenty of dishes, cups, pots, and pans. It made meal planning easier! The day house and night house had separate temperature controls and ceiling fans. The layout was original and perfect for one or two families. There were Smart TV's with HD. Sea'N'Stars is only one house away from the beach, and the island is very quiet, so we felt comfortable letting our older ones walk down to the beautiful, secluded beach alone. It also made for great views from the top deck! The Island Club was set up perfectly with all of the amenities promised. Our kids loved the hot tub and we liked its close proximity to the cute restaurant and pool bar (Mangoes). We also enjoyed Barnacle's restaurant, we opted to sit outside under the pavilion. The service was slow but we didn't mind because there was plenty to do while we waited (corn hole and basketball). The owner of the home, Kara, was a pleasure to deal with. Our BBQ wasn't working properly and her husband showed up ASAP to bring a newer, upgraded one! He respected our privacy and met us outside. - Thank you to both of them! I totally recommend this home and can't wait for our next visit.

Wonderful Hoiliday Week in North Captiva

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to North Captiva Island to stay in this beautiful home for the week as two families. There were 6 teenagers in all. The home's arrangement of a day house and night house was terrific. There was plenty of living space for togetherness as well as inside and outside space for private lounging. The home is beautifully and comfortably decorated and has all the essentials. The ferry on and off the island, go cart transportation and beach access all contributed to the fun and relaxing week. Be sure to bring plenty of food. The pre order via Publix market and the Pine Island Taxi service from and to the airport are the way to go! Be sure to take the jet ski trip with Boats and Fun.

Sea N Stars is a shining star!

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible vacation at North Captiva and a big reason was our accommodations. The proximity to the beach, the amazing sunsets viewed from the top deck, and the feeling of seclusion made this a perfect spot. Sea N Stars has a very unique floor plan that worked out perfectly for our vacation party. With 2 teenage boys and 2 pre-teen girls, they each had their space to relax. We were all very impressed with the decor, kitchen and all the bedrooms. Everything was top of the line. We would highly recommend Sea N Stars to anyone thinking about visiting North Cap. If you book this incredible place, you will be the Star of your vacation party.

Great Family House

  • 5 of 5

Sea N Stars is a terrific house for a family. With the "day" and "night" sections it creates a great place for the adults to hand out after the kids go to bed and for the kids to go to in the morning and let the adults sleep in a bit - we had 4 adults and 5 kids. The loft in the day house is a great place for the kids and created lots of room in the main house. The kids sleeping loft is well designed and a kid favorite although the steps are a little narrow and steep for little ones specifically if they need to get to the bathroom at night. The house is extremely well decorated and came fully furnished - from beach chairs, towels and umbrellas to blender and cooking utensils to games and movies and internet access. Having access to the North Captiva Club pool was a great alternative to the beach and a terrific amenity. Beach is easily accessible, fishing was fun from the surf and we rented a boat right from the Boats & Fun on the island - Andrew from Boats & Fun was great at getting the kids set up to catch some fish. We took the boat out to Cabbage Key for lunch and to Captiva and for fishing. We ate out at Over the Waterfront on the island which was great. Mosquitoes were tough around the house but beach and pool area were bug less. It was 15 years since our last trip to the island and it will not be 15 years to our next one. Everyone had a terrific time and it was a great vacation.

Best week at the beach

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family had a wonderful trip to North Captiva and the Sea N Stars house. The split house was perfect for early risers and those who wanted to stay up later without disturbing those who were sleeping. The sunsets from the crows nest were spectacular. The beach was a quick little walk- didn't even need flip flops. We loved the community pool as well and the poolside drinks and food at Mangoes. The house was extremely well appointed with everything we needed- from beach chairs and sand toys to plenty of toilet paper and a huge selection of spices for cooking. I really can't say enough great things about the house! It was like living in a tropical paradise with all the comforts of home. My children loved the sleeping loft and the living loft for movies, games, or reading in the big sunny windows. Beautiful, beautiful place! Will definitely come back again! Management, owner, and on-site staff were awesome!
