The vacation of a lifetime is awaiting those who are willing to journey to paradise and beyond. The exclusive island of North Captiva is the pinnacle of luxury and privacy, the spot where Floridians go to vacation. The only way to get there is by boat (ferry) and once on the island, bikes and golf carts are the only way to travel. The pace of Captiva is slow and smooth, a great romantic getaway for couples or a chance to spend quality time with your family and make memories that will last a lifetime. The Little Ark is within a short walking distance to one of the finest secluded pristine white powder beaches in Florida. North Captiva offers all the conveniences, amenities and activities of a traditional luxury resort while at the same time offering the tranquility of Florida's natural environment, where you can enjoy walking for miles and not seeing any signs of civilization except the footprints you leave in the sand.

Rental of The Little Ark can include use of all the amenities of the NCIC resort facilities at optional additional charge of $75: 2 pools, hot tub, exercise room, lighted Har-Tru tennie courts, spa, sauna, kayaks, bicycles, fishing poles, beach chairs and umbrellas, kids playgound and basketball half court. Since there are no cars or paved roads on the island, your rental also includes a four person electric golf cart for your entire stay. There is a 700 acre state land preserve with walking trails.

Booking your vacation with the owners allows us to quote you a better price.

What is the Little Ark?

It is the name of our home (every home on North Captiva has a name). It was the name of the house when we bought it. It is unlucky to change the name of a boat when it is sold, so we chose to keep the name of our house the same. In 2004, Hurricane Charlie, a category 4 hurricane, ripped through the island causing major damage. Our house, The Little Ark, sustained very little damage and sailed through the storm.

We have enjoyed our stay here so much. The relaxed, peaceful and beautiful atmosphere created everything we needed for a perfect honeymoon, and it was! The house was wonderful for the two of us and we would love to come back again with family and friends to share.

AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5
This vacation was and always will be one of our families favorites! We were a little concerned being so secluded that the kids (17,15, 12) would have enough to do but there was always things to do--or not do! The house was so well stocked with everything you might need and then some. The pool was great, so close to the ocean, the roof top deck had views/sunsets to take your breath away! Bring lots of food and drinks and your swimsuits and you will be set for the week. The only possible thing I could say negative was the bed was advertised as a Sleep Number Bed, but wasn't. It WAS one of the newer memory foam mattresses (I think) and in very good condition etc, but not to our back's liking! The rest of the house was so great though I almost hate mentioning it. Marie is such a pleasure to work with, you can't go wrong renting from her! We will surely be coming back!

Owner's Response: I am so happy you enjoyed your stay at The Little Ark and North Captiva Island. The private pool and private roof top hot tub with views of the gulf is why people fall in love with The Little Ark. Once people vacation here and see how quaint and peaceful it is on the island with our wonderful beaches and sunsets they come back year after year. So sorry about the sleep number bed...it was about 5 years old and it was time to get a new bed. Thanks for the heads up and will change the information concerning the bed in my advertisement.

A slice of heaven!

We stayed here for a week with our boys ages 6 & 8 years old. This house was so perfect in so many ways! This is not the fanciest house on the island, but if you are ok with that, then stop looking elsewhere! The proximity to the beach cannot be beat for this price, and the fact that the home has its own pool is priceless!! This was by far the best vacation we have taken! It was amazing how "busy" we stayed on such a remote island. We started each day with a kayak trip, then hit the public pool. Came home for lunch on the screened porch. Then went to the beach, either riding our bikes or taking the golf cart. But quite honestly, it's within walking distance. We collected shells, saw dolphin, manatee, sting ray, osprey, tortoise, crabs.....the list goes on. My boys couldn't get enough. The beaches were amazing and unspoiled. Many nights we would drive around the island in the golf cart, and find a little beach to watch the sunset. On almost every night the sun was setting to the west while there was a rainbow to our east! It could NOT have been more beautiful! If you are looking for a great house on the most amazing island, and looking to unplug for a while.....this is the place to be. The Little Ark has all you need to make the vacation perfect.

A wonderful time enjoying paradise

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful family holiday in North Captiva. The Little Ark provided everything we needed to make our holiday complete, we loved the screened deck for eating in the evening - just the sound of the waves and crickets chirping whilst eating under the starry sky couldn't be beaten. We took full advantage of the pool, barbecue and all the games available.

Marie had taken care of our groceries that we had pre-ordered and everything was there ready to go (including the chilled beer).

It was fun to use the golf cart to get around and we enjoyed kayaking at the North Captiva Island Club, ice cream at Barnacle Phils and a fantastic meal at Over the Waterfront.

We would highly recommend the Little Ark and North Captiva for a chilled out, relaxing holiday - just how it should be.

The perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5
What an amazing time and just what we needed! North Captiva truly lets you take a step back from reality and just relax... and the Little Ark was the perfect home base.

The size was perfect for us (just two!), and we loved the location... beautiful, wild and just a short scoot to the beach. The rooftop hottub was used every day and was amazing for late night star gazing. The pool was a perfect chill out in the middle of the day.

We had one rainy day, which was fine, and the Little Ark was a cozy place to wait out the storm, read, listen to music and still keep the relaxing vibe going.

It was very easy to get the info on the property from the owners and the booking and payment process was painless. We were met at the boat and we talked through what we needed to know on the ride to the house and then we were ready to settle in.

Clean, well run and a great value. We'll be back... but I with it could be next week instead of next year!

AWESOME HOUSE--AWESOME ISLAND

  • 4 of 5
My Wife and I stayed at The Little Ark for some much needed R&R. It was exactly what we were looking for. The house was perfect for the 2 of us. We ate at the house for most our meals and the kitchen had everything we needed. The sunsets and star gazing at night in the the rooftop hot tub were amazing! The pool was nice to get into after spending the day at the beach. The outdoor shower was nice too. Marie the owner is extremely helpful as well. She was always quick to return an email or call. We had an issue with a golf cart and people were there in about 15 mins to fix the problem. We really hope to return next year.
