Overview

North Captiva Island House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms - 2½ Bathrooms - Sleeps 6 w/ Pool

This traditional, Florida-style island cottage was completed in 2001 and is situated less than 200 yards down a private path to a sugar, sand beach on the Gulf of Mexico. This is one of the newer island houses with only one elevated, single-level, floor plan providing ease of access and family-friendly living. It is designed to provide the utmost comfort while capturing the scenic beauty around it.

Features include: Outdoor living environment includes a heated pool with wrap around wooden deck, covered outdoor bar, pool table, barbecue and eating area. The relaxing and stylish interior retreat has a spacious private master suite with study/sitting area and master bath, along with two additional bedrooms in a split floor plan, and a second large bath. Sleeps six with one king, one queen, and two twin beds. Baby crib and high chair are included. A convenient utility room with washer and dryer adjoins the kitchen.

The village of Upper Captiva: The village of Upper Captiva sits on the northern tip of North Captiva Island, a secluded tropical island in Southwest Florida. This bridge-less island is unique among the sandy coastal barrier islands of Florida. North Captiva Island is surrounded by the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico and Pine Island Sound, about six miles off the mainland of Florida. Boca Grande lies to the north and Captiva and Sanibel lie to the south.

This tropical island is one pearl in the necklace of 'outer islands' embracing Pine Island Sound. Access is only by boat or private airplane. No cars! No crowds! This has assured that the island remains unspoiled and unhurried. Its sandy beaches are decorated with an endless supply of driftwood and seashells surpassing that of the legendary Sanibel/Captiva beaches. Upper Captiva is a truly unique combination of comfort and luxury in an idyllic tropical

paradise.

Best Vacation Yet!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 stayed in the Hidden Beach House for 7 days in July 2009. We absolutely were excited about going to the house. Once we arrived the exceeded our expectations. We had all the comforts of home! It was exactly as it was discribed on the website. The owners once we met in person were like old firends and ever so welcoming to have us stay in their home. This was one of our best vacations. It is a vacation for those who are not wanting alot of external attractions. The only attraction we did was rent a speedboat for the day. We visited the nearby barrier islands and walked a beach that was a nature preserve. Beautiful shells were seen even an area where the sea turtles lay and hatch eggs. There were dolphins swimming all around us. A manatee was spotted on our trip to Captiva. How cool! The biggest decisions we had to make daily was 'Do we go to the beach or pool today. We saw numerous beautiful sunsets but did not make it up early enough to see the sunrise...we say next time! We will most likely be returning to the Hidden Beach House.

very cute house with a great location

  • 4 of 5

Darling house on a beautiful island. The home has everything you can think of for outdoor activities from bikes, beach umbrellas, kayaks, and beach toys to pool floats and beach towels. They even have a beach stroller and bike carriage for little ones. The owners were wonderful to work with and very accommodating. The house is lovely and a perfect size. We especially enjoyed the front screen porch and the pool area. The downstairs grill and dining area is a great relaxed area to hang out for dinner and pool.

Ideal Island Experience

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to the island and hopefully not the last. The Hidden Beach House was perfect for our family. The inside was decorated beautifully and we really liked that the living area and bedrooms were all on the same floor. Having a pool right there at the house was really an added bonus. Pat was wonderful to work with and she answered all our questions and even texts during our stay.

Convenient, close-to-the-beach, and slow-paced

  • 4 of 5

My daughter, son-in-law, 3 yr. old grandson, 9 month-old granddaughter, husband and I stayed for a week (January 2015) - and had a great time inhabiting Pat's beach house. The beach was only a block away by foot; the heated pool was my grandson's private nude getaway; both kayaks loaded easily onto the trailer (which then hitched onto our golf cart); Barnacles provided ice cream every day (expensive, but worth it); the grill worked well; the kitchen was easy to navigate; the washer-dryer worked perfectly; the quiet surrounding us (when the kids weren't crying) was outstanding; and the 2 TVs worked when we needed to tape Downton Abbey and UConn basketball games.

Pat was a gracious, incredibly hands-on host. Before we arrived, she answered all my frantic emails and consistently eased my mind about every detail of the trip. She left us a goodie basket with a bottle of wine (for us) and lots of candy and popcorn (for my grandson). We all really appreciated her little gift of goodies, believe me. We also appreciated that she called in our food order, picked up our pre-ordered groceries, and then stocked the shelves and fridge before we arrived (this was an extra fee, but totally worth it!).

Pat made sure there was a pack-and-play for the 9 month old and plenty of beach toys, pool toys, and even books in the bookshelf for the 3 year old. We used the bikes and my daughter and son-in-law also hitched up the baby trailer Pat left for them.

Pat and a friend picked us up at the ferry and carted us all back to the house, making the transition from traveler to visitor a breeze. Pat made sure to come back to the house a few times to help us figure out how to unclog a shower drain and deal with other minor house details, and she couldn't have been friendlier or more welcoming! She also recommended a very responsible van driver, who picked us up at the airport and then again at the ferry when we returned a week later.

The weather this late January was cool - not hot - but that didn't stop us at all from taking advantage of the island. We went to different beaches every day (often many times a day), walked, hiked in the nature preserve, gathered shells, checked out the wildlife and enjoyed the breeze from the porch.

I'd have to say it is a perfect vacation for a 3 1/2 year-old. Ours was entranced by everything...and loved identifying shells and birds with us. He also loved driving around the island in the golf cart - as did we four adults!

Beautiful Beach Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed 6 nights at the Hidden Beach House. We had a wonderful time! From the gulf carts to get us around the island, to the kayaks to get us around the ocean, we had everything we needed. The kitchen was well equipped, rooms were comfy and cozy. We enjoyed the screened in front porch, swimming pool, hammocks and the grill. Can't wait for our next visit!

Delightful home away from home...

  • 5 of 5

It felt like home... what a great place to get away, relax and have a fabulous time.

From the initial conversations with the owners, to the friendly staff who greeted and helped us when we arrived on the island (and during our stay), to the greeting basket and comfortable furnishings, we were well taken care of.

The house is a short walk or very short cart from the beach.

The deck is very nicely designed. It's all right there for hanging out, grilling out, cleaning up from the beach, playing pool or darts.

We stayed there with our 10-month-old and also enjoyed having friends over who were staying in a higher-end house with fewer amenities.

I highly recommend Hidden Beach House and would gladly stay there again.

Owner's Response: Thanks and we look forward to your return visit!

Map

It is a short walk or quick ride in the golf cart to reach the pristine natural beach of North Captiva Island. We on Hidden Lane are in the popular “close to everything” neighborhood of Jose’s Hideaway. The house is part of the beach lying on one of the highest coastal “back dunes” about 200 steps from the windswept shore of the wide open “fore dune” environment. There are only four other homes scattered on the secondary dunes between you and the Gulf of Mexico.

The shady bay side maritime forest and harbor side facilities are equally

convenient. The golf cart and bicycles are provided at no extra cost for exploring the island. A variety of beach accessories include beach chairs, beach towels, skim boards, kayaks and much more. Transportation to the Island is available by water taxi/ferry by fare. Boat rentals and fishing charters are also available nearby.

Other Activities: Kayaking, Shelling, Boating
