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 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

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.

Simply the best on the island

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!

Fell in love with North Captiva Island and Manatee Haven

We have been back home for a week and are already counting down the days until we can go back. This was our first time to the island and your home but our friends have stayed there many times that we were with. When my friend said your home had everything we would need, I didn't realize she really meant EVERYTHING! We had the absolute BEST time! From coffee on the observation deck, the kids swimming for hours in the pool, lunch on the patio, and evenings playing cards and board games, we are suffering from post-island depression! We can't thank you enough for sharing your beautiful home with us. We will definitely go back.

Owner's Response: It is wonderful to note that a first time visitor of a previous guest wrote this review and captured what we try to accomplish to our guests, i.e. provide "everything" they need to have a memorable vacation experience.

Fabulous Family Spring Break!

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Manatee Haven and certainly look forward to a return trip. The layout of your home is wonderful and it was fantastic to have a screened in pool to enjoy. Your house is extremely well stocked and maintained. We were blown away by the organized manner of your DVD collection. We have visited North Captiva a few times before and always stayed on the beach, so we were reluctant at first to move to a location not oceanfront. We quickly learned this was not an issue and found it simple to transport our family to the beach.

Your home provided us with way more space than we needed and having so many comforts of home without having to drag them to the island was perfect!

Thank you again for the opportunity to rent your lovely home – we look forward to a return trip.
Owner's Response: We very much appreciate the review and especially the statement, "blown away by the organized manner of your DVD collection". There are over 700 movie DVDs in 13 3-ring binders organized by G, PG, and R. It's a quick way to for a guest to look through the movie name index pages to select a movie to watch.

Escape back to the simple times

This was our 2nd time to the Island & our 1st time staying at Manatee Haven. This home has EVERYTHING! If you plan on renting, you only need to bring your clothes, main food staples, & very personal items like deodrant & toothbrushes & toothpaste. The house is completely stocked with everything else. The kitchen is stocked with oils, vingers, spices, utensils, & gadgets glarore. It even has an automatic ice cream maker so be sure to bring heavy cream & milk. Nothing like ice cream while sitting on one of the screened in porches watching the sunset. Jane & Jeff were great. Any issues that may arise were taken care. Sorry for the many phone calls & texts the first few days. The pics of this house do not do justice to the beauty of the home. It is much more. Kay has a closet full...literally..of games for old & young, a drawer full of books for bed time reading for the kids & every item that a manatee can be put on from pics to towels to night lights & lamps. Our family refers to this vacation desrinarion as Gilligans Island. It is pure, clean, and a true work of Natures beauty. You will not be disappointed if you chose this home. Kay was wonderful to work with & always answered my mamy emails. She even called to make sure her home met our needs. Hoping to rent again, unless we bring more people. & would need a bigger home. Manatee Haven is truly a haven to be shared by family for memories that last a life time. The elevator was perfect & made sharing every level care free for some family members that required assistance with mobility issues.

Owner's Response: We appreciate the point of view from a guest that has stayed on the island before by spelling out the salient points of Manatee Haven. Namely, that our home has EVERYTHING, i.e. well stocked kitchen, helpful managers, beauty of home, many family games, and an available elevator. What we appreciated the most was that they, "shared their memories that last a lifetime".

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.
