Overview

About the property

6 Bedroom Premier Beach Front Estate/breath taking sunset views!

Welcome to New Latitude ... The premier Captiva Island beach front estate. The home features six bedrooms all with en-suite bathrooms, one half bathroom and a half bath on the beach level adjacent to the outdoor shower and game area. New Latitude is the perfect home for family gatherings and once-in-a-lifetime destination vacation. As you pull up and drive through the winding drive, you are welcomed by native and tropical foliage on either side. Up the stairway to the main entrance of the estate opens into your private courtyard style, saltwater, heated pool with two guest suites that open onto the pool area. Each guest suite has an en-suite bathroom and private balcony overlooking the gardens. You can't help but get swept off your feet gazing at the endless views of the Gulf of Mexico from the rows of 8 foot high sliding glass doors. You experience a gulf view from nearly every room in the house!

Open the sliding doors from the pool into the spacious living area with comfortable seating, 70" wall mounted smart TV. The living area is part of the great room with a high end dining table and open kitchen with new solid surface, stone countertops, ultra high end appliances, coffee bar with a Keurig and Traditional Coffee Pot as well as a second refrigerator/freezer for additional storage. The main level of the home also features a media room/den/sixth bedroom with another 70" wall mounted smart TV, and sectional sleeper sofa with en-suite bath. Follow the hallway around to your private fitness room with several professional grade pieces of equipment, free weights and half bath. There is also a wall mounted TV to enjoy as you have your morning workout. The best feature about the main level of New Latitude is the deck off the great room stretching from one side of the home to the other. This area features some of the best views you will find of the Gulf of Mexico anywhere on Captiva Island. Enjoy a meal, morning cup of coffee or evening cocktail from the ample seating areas and additional dining table.

Up the stairs or private elevator, is the second level of New Latitude. On the North end sits a king master suite with full bath and huge glass slider doors which open to the second level balcony. Here you are greeted by both the morning glow on the water and the breathtaking panoramic sunsets. Follow the hallway South and you come to the perfect room for children or younger adults with a full size bunk beds and a twin bed with a trundle. There is another full bathroom just off this bedroom as well that boasts a bathtub and shower featuring more direct views of the water. On the South end of the estate is your second private master suite with another ultra comfortable king sized bed, wall mounted smart TV, personal washer/dryer and en-suite bathroom. This suite also has another additional outdoor private shower which enjoys spectacular views out to the Gulf of Mexico.

The second level balcony has a unique spiral staircase which leads to your private sun deck and views out to the Gulf of Mexico that go on seemingly forever. The sunset views are awe-inspiring to say the least ... you have to see it for yourself to fully grasp the beauty. In the morning, if you choose to venture out early enough, you can watch the sun rise from the waters on the bay to the East which are in your sights from this highest viewing point on the island.

As we didn't want to leave any detail out, the beach level of the home has a ping pong table, foosball, bag toss, swings like you would find at Caribbean restaurants, a new high-end spa hot tub, out door shower, beach bathroom and a short, winding path which leads directly to the private beach. The beach side of the property has a manicured landscape grassy yard perfect for family games of frisbee, bag toss or to just sit in the beach side chairs and read a book or daydream. There are also tropical fruit trees lining the South side of the property further enhancing and encapsulating the Tropical Florida Beach Experience.

Should you have to do any work while on Vacation, watch Netflix or listen to Pandora, New Latitude includes complimentary high speed wireless internet. Your stay also includes access to my local rental agency which may arrange rental items, restaurant reservations, trip enhancements, private chefs and anything else you may think of to add to your perfect vacation rental experience.

Five to seven night minimum booking required within a Saturday to Saturday time frame.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi Michele,



Just a quick note to say how memorable our stay was at your beach house and to thank you for making the property available to us. It was one of the most spectacular places we have experienced because of the privacy and proximity to the beach. We spent most days under umbrellas, 25 feet from the Gulf watching the birds and dolphins...it was like being tuned in to National Geographic on TV!



We loved how tastefully you have decorated each room and found the bed linens to be especially soft.



Once again, many thanks for everything.

Owner's Response: Thank you Dawn for taking the time to post a review. I agree that the deck is "the best ever." It always takes my breath away when I first arrive at the house, I head straight to the beachfront deck. The beauty never ceases to amaze me. We look forward to having you back to the island and to New Latitude again soon. Enjoy the Sunsets, Michele

Owner's Response: Thank you Johnny for commenting on the fun to be had at New Latitude. Our family loves to stay active by playing games, especially outdoors. The view and gulf breezes at NL make it all that more magical. I appreciate knowing you all enjoyed it as well. Please come be our guest again soon and remember...always enjoy the sunsets! Michele

WONDERFUL LOCATION.

  • 5 of 5

We were blessed with perfect weather in the most perfect location, celebrating a 60th birthday with my extended family. New Latitude is a very comfortable property. We were a party of 11 adults, and once negotiations were finished about who was sleeping where, we had a wonderful time - with that deck over-looking the ocean, watching the abundant wild life going about their business (including a large tortoise) we didn't really want to go anywhere else! Any minor problems we encountered were solved quickly by Homeaway, and already, we are hoping and planning to return next year.

Owner's Response: Hi Kim. You made my day with your kind note. I am so glad you saw the gopher land tortoise. It is a small miracle that he lives in our dunes. The gopher land tortoise is on the list of endangered species in America and we are pleased he is safe and free to roam about in our yard. We think there may be a few of them that live nearby. Looking forward to having you back again next year!! Please reach out to me before your next stay so I can make sure we have everything you all need for a perfect beach/island vacation. Thank you again for taking the time to post a comment. Enjoy the Sunsets, Michele

New Latitude might be my New Favorite

  • 5 of 5

Amazing views of the beach, nice quiet and relaxing. Perfect location for shelling. Loved the indoor pool, it was great if it was too breezy outside to be in there and lay by the pool. Great amenities indoors and out. Plenty of room for our family. Would definitely stay here again. The only complaint I had were the pillows on the beds, otherwise everything else was great!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am grateful you plan to return. That is my ultimate goal...that New Latitude is your favorite vacation home. I can't take credit for the amazing views and sunsets or the pristine beach. However, I want all the amenities to exceed your expectations. The pillows in the home are high-end down-alternative and quite an investment. They are my personal favorite. Great sleep is essential to a restful vacation so before you return to my home please reach out to Ryan Block, my property manager, or to me directly and we will purchase whatever pillows you prefer. It is a small gesture of hospitality that I hope you take me up on. Have a wonderful Spring and above all...enjoy the sunsets! Michele

Beautiful home, stunning location

  • 5 of 5

In sum, this home is beautiful and sits in a stunning location with sunsets that are truly unbeatable! It is also happens to be perfectly and thoughtfully outfitted.

We used the home for my parents' 50th wedding anniversary celebration. We had 12 family members ranging in age from nearly 2 years to 75 years and it accommodated us all VERY comfortably.

It was quite obvious how much effort and expense the owner had put into making our experience as easy and wonderful as possible. The kitchen is stocked with truly anything you might need: endless glassware (very nice plastic and glass options including Riedel wine glasses), plates (very nice plastic and pottery), silverware, cookware etc. The beds were all very comfortable with high quality bedding. Towels plush and clean. The televisions in the two main living spaces are enormous and with smart TV technology. All bedrooms also with new TVs as well.

The beach is beautiful and quiet. There are two Adirondack chairs that stay on the beach but the home also has a wonderful beach-tired wheelbarrow to bring additional chairs, umbrellas, kids toys, beach games, coolers back and forth VERY easily. And just to build on the kids' toys theme - no need to bring any of your own. This home has everything you'd need to build a sandcastle with endless surrounding motes and sea creatures galore. My kids had a blast on the beach with all the provided toys. My adolescent niece and nephew appreciated the pool table and games below the porch as well as the hot tub and indoor pool.

It should be specifically stated that the indoor saltwater pool is stunning, full-sized and warmed! My only hesitation in recommending this home to a family with small children is the indoor pool since it presents a safety risk and the sliding doors are not able to be locked. They are quite heavy and my 5 year old had trouble opening them, but that said, he was able to do it. I purchased a pool safety alarm and attached safety bracelets to both my kids that could only be removed with a key. They looked like they were on house-arrest but it worked very well and helped me relax and enjoy our vacation! Other than the safety concern, the pool was a major upside to this house and so I only mention this from a pragmatic standpoint. I would absolutely recommend renting this gorgeous home, but a water safety plan is important to have ahead of time.

Owner's Response: I am grateful for your insight Kimball with regard to the pool and small children. Since The slider doors lock, I thought we had it all in order for kids and their safety. I am enjoying New Latitude with my family for my 50th birthday this week and will be able to have my team secure the area in a way that children can not navigate. Before I leave this weekend, we will have child safety locks placed up high up on each slider that only a grown adult will be able to reach or unfasten. Thank you also for all your positive comments about our home. The views take our breath away every time we arrive here from Missouri and luxury and comfort are important to me while I am relaxing and enjoying my vacation time as well. I will always keep improving New Latitude to assure no one is disappointed with their experience....including me. 😊? You and your family were wonderful, thoughtful guests and I look forward to having you back to Captiva and our island home soon.
