About the property


This North Captiva Island vacation home has been newly renovated and furnished in 2015. THE BEACH HOUSE is a relaxed, elegant 4 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom home with incredible waterfront views and shallow beach at your doorstep ready and waiting to provide the perfect setting for the best vacation ever.

THE BEACH HOUSE is set in a tropical island paradise. Located just 3 miles offshore, part of the Lee Island Coast Barrier Chain. From the moment you arrive, you will feel as if you have been whisked away to a distant, peaceful, quiet tropical setting. Remote and undiscovered, North Captiva Island is accessible only by water taxi, private boat or small plane. This private island community is reminiscent of old Florida. It is home to an expansive nature preserve and surrounded by natural beauty. Explore the island by golf cart on our sandy native trails. Here, you will find no cars, no crowds or paved roads. North Captiva Island offers just enough amenities to suite your family needs. We welcome you to enjoy a truly memorable experience where a slower, relaxed pace is the norm.

The home offers wonderfully appointed furnishings and has 2600 square feet under A/C with more than 4200 square feet of living space including open decks on both floors and covered veranda on the main level. It was professionally renovated and decorated from top to bottom and completed in May 2015. Most everything in THE BEACH HOUSE is brand new, built for casual island living, with one of the best unobstructed waterfront views on the island.

If you enjoy cooking, you will love the all new, well equipped kitchen with brand new appliances, utensils, dinnerware and lots of Quartz counter space. The home has 3 flat screen TV's with Satellite Dish-TV and High Speed Wi-Fi. There is plenty of room to stretch out in the newly furnished living room, dining room and bedrooms. An expansive wrap around veranda, 2 roof level decks with sunrise and sunset views, outdoor shower and amazing large beach where dolphins play are waiting for your exclusive use. The sleeping arrangements are top notch accommodating 8 people with 1 extra large master bedroom with King bed and en-suite bath, 2 guest bedrooms each with Queen beds both with their own private en-suite baths and access to the outside decks, a 4th loft bedroom with twin beds as well as 2 Pack N Play's for babies. The main floor laundry room is equipped with a front load washer and dryer with a supply of laundry detergent as well as a sink for cleaning those treasures found on the beach.

THE BEACH HOUSE is a perfect venue for Weddings, Anniversaries, Romantic Getaways or a Family Vacation.

You won't want to leave this wonderful retreat.

About Shirley

Hi, we are Al & Shirley and reside in Toronto Canada. We purchased our first Florida vacation home in 2007 in Cape Coral and have been enjoying it with our family and friends ever since. In the summer of 2014 we took a trip to North Captiva Island and were hooked on its beauty and purchased this property which we lovingly renovated.

Shirley purchased this house in 2014

Why Shirley chose Florida

Although it needed a lot of renovating, we chose this property for the location. Sitting on its own private beachfront was breathtaking and we saw the potential to make it something special.

Wonderful place to unwind

  • 5 of 5

This home is very nice. Tastefully remodeled and comfortable. But you don't stay here for the house. The location is incredible. Peaceful and relaxing with great views over calm, dolphin-filled waters.

Fantastic Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at The Beach House for a week. Shirley was so accommodating and responded to all of our needs. We loved this Island Home. It was very spacious, clean and decorated to perfection! We enjoyed the beauty of the birds and dolphins. We had a Heron visit us daily- we of course named him Fred! It was very private and great for kids! The Island is very special and we loved cruising around in the golf carts, kayaking, homemade ice cream from Queenie (Barnacles) the sunsets and sunrises and the beautiful gift of nature that it offers. We will be back and can't say enough good things about The Beach House!

Fantastic Vacation at The Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

My family and our dear friends (a total of four adults and four teenagers) stayed at The Beach House over our recent spring break vacation and first trip to North Captiva Island. We could have not had a better experience! The house exceeded our expectations for comfort, cleanliness, decor, and livability. We felt like we were home, and we did not want to leave. The location could not be more perfect. What a treat to walk along the quiet beach morning and evening, and during the day, sit in front of the house on the beach to watch for dolphins. Even though we were on vacation, we really enjoyed cooking in the beautifully equipped kitchen. Our teenagers actually enjoyed watching older videos one rainy evening. Our days away from the house found us renting kayaks and paddle boards and even a boat that we took to Cabbage Key for lunch. We had a wonderful vacation at The Beach House, thanks to Shirley, who was extremely pleasant and easy to work with, and so prompt about answering emails. Shirley went out of her way to help us find a second golf cart when no others could be found on the island. I can strongly recommend The Beach House. We hope to return someday soon.

Comfortable and a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

This is a great location. The layout of the house was great for our family. The amenities of the house had everything we needed. Also all the extra baby supplies made this trip very easy to travel with our 7 month old granddaughter. This was one of our best family reunions because of the house and location. We will definitely come back again.

Wonderful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful time. I spent the week with my husband, 4 year old, and mother in law, and could not have asked for more. We had a housekeeping snafu upon arrival, but it was handled quickly and to our satisfaction. Oversights happen. I can attest first hand to the attentiveness of the owners, and it was handled perfectly.

After that it was completely smooth sailing. The house was airy and bright, and the view was unparalleled. We saw dolphins swim by on nearly a daily basis! The kitchen was well stocked and had everything we could have asked for. The rooms were spacious and well appointed. We all slept comfortably.

There is lots to do on the island, but we took a more low key approach. Our days were spent lounging on the beach, reading books, and playing.

We were sad to leave, and would love to come back again soon. If you're looking for a spacious, comfortable, beautiful home - look no further!

Wonderful Family Christmas Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our Christmas vacation with our new Grandbabies could not have been any better. Just as described the house is beautiful and the beach is great. We were able to participate in the annual 5K run/walk on the island to benefit the fire department, rent jet ski's and shell on the beach. The personnel at Island Girl ferry were also very helpful in getting all of our stuff from mainland to island. Having 6 adults and 2 infants we felt as though we were moving our house, but all went very smooth. I am sure we will not only hesitate to recommend this location to our friends and family.
