We are a retired couple (Kay and Jake) who live in Leesburg, Virginia who who have 20 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. 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 2 daughters with son-in-laws and 8 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.
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.
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.
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 3 restaurants and one snack bar/grocery store. The beach is a quick 1 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.
