About Kay

We are a retired couple (Kay and Jake) who live in Leesburg, Virginia who who have 21 years of experience in the managing of a vacation rental home. We enjoy coming down to Manatee Haven during times when it is not being rented to work on maintenance issues and do deep cleaning. Kay did all of the decorating and is very fussy about keeping a clean and functional vacation home for our guests. The rest of the family includes two daughters with sons-in-law and eight grandchildren ranging from the ages of 4 year to 21. We donate $25 to the Save the Manatee Club for every client that visits our home during the year.

Kay purchased this house in 2002

Why Kay chose North Captiva Island

We built Manatee Haven in 2002 and chose North Captiva Island because of its seclusion, privacy and relaxing atmosphere. We previously owned a vacation rental home on Captiva Island from 1993 to 2002 named 'Casa Manatee' in the Sunset Captiva community #26.

What makes this house unique

Manatee Haven is unique in that when you enter the home it is completely under a 3-story screen enclosure on a large deck (3,200 sq. ft) with elevator, a 33 ft. long and 15 ft. wide heated swimming pool, hot-tub, enclosed hot & cold water shower, small refrigerator, swimming pool games and toys and plenty of outdoor furniture to relax and enjoy yourself. This enclosure keeps the bugs out and no sunscreen lotion would be necessary.

It doesn't get any better than Manatee Haven

It doesn't get any better than Manatee Haven
  • 5 of 5
Three generations of our family spent a week on Cloud Nine at Manatee Haven. The entire experience was fantastic and a perfect final week of summer vacation before the kids went back to school. The owners, managers, the home, the island - - all outstanding. Earlier reviews describe the specifics and I won't waste your time repeating them here. The bottom line, however, is this: if you are looking for a great place to have a truly luxurious, unique getaway, you MUST consider Manatee Haven. You will not be sorry!

SIX Stars

  • 5 of 5
What else can be said that hasn't been said in the previous 31 reviews - all with perfect scores of 5! I bet you can't find that for any other rental home!

Here's the scoop as experienced by my wife and I earlier this month:

STAR 1 - The OWNERS are extremely responsive at any time of the process - from the initial inquiry through following up after your stay. I don't recall ever waiting as much a day for an email response. I am confident that their main objective is to make the experiences of their quests memorable and to continuously improve their home.

STAR 2 - The on island PROPERTY MANAGERS are top notch. They are extremely personable and respond immediately to a phone call if you have a concern or a need. They are very approachable.

STAR 3 - The HOME. You feel comfortable from the time your drive your golf cart into the driveway. It's extremely clean and neat - and has practically everything you would want. The pool and hot tub are outstanding. Once inside you feel like you belong there. Kudos to the cleaning crew. Read all the other reviews for more details on the amenities of the home - they are all accurate.

STAR 4 - The ISLAND - miles of soft sand beaches nearly desolate. A wonderful nature preserve that is an easy 25 minute hike through a sandy path ending in more isolated beaches away from everything. You must take this walk and be sure to wear your sneakers. Bring a backpack with some goodies and some cool drinks!

STAR 5 - The WILDLIFE - Do you like kayaking with the dolphins, perhaps a catching a glimpse of manatee. How about watching a gopher tortoise amble across one of the sandy paths (no black top on these roads). There are also various species of birds, bunny rabbits, and various fish in the gulf if you like to fish.

STAR 6 - RELAXATION - The five preceding Stars lead up to this one. If you're looking for crowds, night clubs, and load noises - this is not the vacation for you. If your looking to relax and have fun - look no further. Manatee Haven is the place for you. Do miss out on a vacation of a lifetime.

I have to rate Manatee Haven a "6".

Just Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5
The first week of June my sister and I took our kids (ages 7 thru 15) to North Captiva island, for 10 days. Choosing to stay at Manatee Haven is what made the entire trip perfect. This house has everything you could ever need. I'm still in amazement. It was so clean, great location and big private pool. Truthfully the combo of the beautiful, peaceful island, The care and expertise the owners of Manatee Haven give to just help organizing your trip to the perfect house with all you could ever need! And having Jane and Jeff there to help out made this by far one of the greatest vacations ever. We will definitely go back and no doubt stay at Manatee Haven! Thank you so much Kay, Jane and Jeff!

Wonderful Family Retreat!

  • 5 of 5
This was our second visit to Manatee Haven and it absolutely can't be beat for a care-free family retreat! This home is so well designed and prepared for a large family group. In our case, the elevator was priceless for Grandpa, and the pool provided hours of fun for the young ones. Everything is clean, comfortable, and well maintained. The pool is big enough for everyone, and having it screened and shaded is a big plus! The beach is so close that even our toddlers could race there in no time, and we love the absence of cars, stores, and crowds! We haven't found any other vacation spot that lends itself more thoroughly to relaxation and family time, or any home that we've enjoyed more. As others have attested, once you reach the island and Manatee Haven, life simply revolves around having fun together. Thank you for providing such a great home away from home!

Great Home, has everything.

  • 5 of 5
This is the first visit to N. Captiva Island for my family and I. We had a great time and staying ay Manatee Haven was the best. The house has everything you would ever need and much more. Our Grand daughter loved the pool, the many toys and riding around on the golf cart. When we plan next years family vacation Manatee Haven will top the list.

Simply the best on the island

  • 5 of 5
This was our 4th trip to North Captiva, and our 3rd time staying @ Manatee Haven. As others have said, this house has everything you need. Simply pack your bathing suit, a couple t-shirts, your food and beverages - and that is all you need! What I love about this house is that it is 100% livable space. Four spacious bedrooms, really comfy living room/screened patio overlooking the golf, awesome kitchen, updated furnishings, and in "like new" shape, and a fantastic location close to everything. While there are 3 full baths, we only used the extremely nice outdoor shower by the pool. The pool/hot tub/dining/shower area is much larger in real life than photos show. We found we spent a ton of time here. And because the pool is screened and tucked back behind the house, it's an excellent choice on windy days or if you want "filtered" sun. We cannot find another house on the island that has quite this setup. The owners, Kay and Jake have clearly put a ton of hard work and love into this home. Everything is so personalized and themed towards manatees. We've been going long enough for our daughters to be napping in diapers, to now being tweens and teens asking to take the kayaks or bikes out to explore. The folks who manage the property, Jane and Jeff will be sure you have no problems and are quick to respond to any questions you have. Kay is the best to work with during booking your trip and questions. All emails were replied to within one day. Simply put...we crave this place and everything about it. No words or photos are good enough to convey how perfect it is - but I hope this helps! We can't wait to go back!

Manatee Haven is located on a barrier island North Captiva Island. You take a public water-taxi from Pineland Marina on Pine Island, Florida. It takes 25 minutes to get to the island. You use a golf cart to get around the island. There are three restaurants and one snack bar/grocery store. The beach is less than a minute ride by golf cart. The island is very peaceful and quiet as there are no large condo complexes allowed, only single family homes. If you are looking to kick back and relax you have come to the right place.
