About Mark & Wendy Muller

Mark & I have lived full-time on this island for 8 years and started out renting vacation homes for vacations here too. North Captiva was the first place we ever rented a whole vacation home; we had always stuck to hotels, cheaper apartment hotels, and condos to rent for vacations. We did vacation in Florida a lot, though. Massachusettes and New Hampshire are really cold in the winter.

For our first rental on the island.. we stayed ... just the 2 of us, close to the beach. Well no matter the house, renting a whole home was just perfect. We grilled every meal even breakfast on a screen porch by the sea. (Fresh Wild Mango Quesadillas of course!)

Our Vacation Property, Windswept, is proudly; Owned, Booked, Maintained, and Managed by US the OWNERS. We take pride in our properties. We strive to take superior care of our property and provide you with the BEST BEACH Vacation Rentals EVER!

Kind regards,

Wendy & Mark Muller

Owners of Windswept North Captiva

'just sending you a reminder of how thankful we are for the exceptional service you provided to ensure we had the vacation of a lifetime. - Shelli Harrigan 2009'

Mark & Wendy Muller purchased this house in 2004

Why Mark & Wendy Muller chose North Captiva Island

Loved it from the get go... buying all of our supplies and heading to the beach for a long weekend. Renting a whole house was something we would always try to do from then on. We had it down to a science though... since we would fly in to Orlando or Ft Lauderdale and drive around a bit on our way here, we always had 3 or 4 soft sided coolers (made of fabric) folded them up and packed them inside 1 cooler bag with masks and snorkles and deflated air mattresses. This cooler bag- we checked it. At Publix we just unpacked the coolers and stuffed them with grocery supplies.

Vacations on North Captiva require less stuff then mainland vacations. You wear your swimsuits most of the time, flip flops are best instead of shoes :) and every home has laundry- so you could wear 2 or 3 outfits the whole time and just wash 'em. Now that is freedom... that is relaxation. Just stretching yourself out on the sand.

What makes this house unique

We know you will have a great vacation here. When explaining a vacation at Windswept on North Captiva... we always try to imagine what it would be like to be discovering this island for the treasure that it really is for the first time again. Mostly we just think of how many beautiful and unique things are collected into one gorgeous spot.. not well known... undiscovered if you will, and that may be what makes it so beautiful.

The best reasons to enjoy a vacation at Windswept are definitely the location, the house, the privacy, and the heated pool. Few others will ever see North Captiva from your vantage at Windswept, with the sun rising at one side of the property till the sun sets at the other.

Windswept is on the private island directly to the North of the islands of Sanibel and Captiva. As most would say, we are like Sanibel and Captiva islands were 50 years ago, before the bridges. 'Cut-off' to some degree, but this makes the island all the more special. Plenty to do here with fishing, beach combing, shelling, boat rentals, etc., but what is also just as alluring is what is NOT available.

WINDSWEPT…The Place to Stay to be swept away!

  • 5 of 5
Mark and Wendy have an amazing home they are willing to generously share at an affordable price with others while still maintaining high quality of service. Their amenities they offer, just in their home, were completely unexpected! Two beautiful washers and dryer units, comforts of home from spices in the chef’s kitchen to the choices of gas or charcoal grilling with table outside. Traveling by plane does not offer a lot of room for bringing many items and Mark and Wendy keep it affordable with many unexpected stocked items.

We initially were interested in Windswept because of the beauty of the home and what sold us was the hospitality of Mark and Wendy even before our arrival. Having never been to North Captiva was a little unsettling on not knowing what to expect and how to prepare. Every phone call and every question was answered in patience and kindness even when their normal duties as parents were carrying on.

Windswept is all that is pictured on their website. I hesitantly recommend only because I always want it to be available for rent to us! Of course, I say that with humor and a little truth too though. Mark and Wendy personally showed us how everything worked in their home from the media to the appliances. No worries about restful sleep; the beds were amazing and gave much welcomed rest after each day of adventure. The bathrooms were filled with towels, first aid, hair dryers, etc. along with refreshing showers and Jacuzzis to ease the muscles from miles of exploration.
Mark and Wendy were always available for questions, but thankfully no problems occurred. Their relationship with NCIC must be top notch as check in and check out was already completed by them. The round home with the complete deck surrounding always gave us access to the beautiful sunrises and sunsets along with the occasional yell down to the pool for our kids to come up for dinner. Each morning our family would meet in the outdoor living room with coffee for event planning and laughing over memories of the previous days. My dad found serenity in reading out there as well. The eagles nest captured an awesome view of the water on both sides of North Captiva while the “savannah” sets as your footstool with many paths that lead to the ocean, either for walking or bike riding.

The golf carts were a blast to ride around in. If you are looking for quality, beauty, comfort, clean, and elegance with the warmth of the beach, Windswept is the place to stay. The Ciccos'

Great house for family reunion!

  • 5 of 5
This was our fourth visit to North Captiva and our first to Windswept. It was the perfect house for our group of 8: 6 adults and 2 teens. We found the opportunity to stay in such a unique circular home a big part of our vacation island experience. My husband and I liked using the kitchen which was the best appointed of any rental property we had experienced. Also, the immediate view from the stove or counter was of the living area with our family watching TV, playing games or doing jigsaws and then the bigger view out through the expanse of windows was of the nature preserve and sunsets spread out before us. My adult children enjoyed lounging by Windswept's pool or swimming in the perfect temperature water. My teens loved hanging out on the various levels of the tower on their phones, taking pictures, sorting through the shells they had collected and sunbathing. The house was full of extras like a basket of sun hats, a cupboard of games, great movie selections and plentiful beach towels. And the double washers and dryers in the house were easy to use and convenient. Best of all, Wendy and Mark welcomed us at the dock and were available by cell for help with a golf cart, advice on where to see manatees and even gave my husband construction adhesive to fix his blown out Chaco! They live and work on the island and we enjoyed getting to know them. And we took their recommendation and got Sandies' grocery service, de-stressed this mom's vacation! Can't image a way the week could have been better.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5
Spent Spring Break with two other families; 6 adults and 6 teenagers. Had a wonderful time at Windswept and on the island. Great home - well equipped with everything. Mark and Wendy were great to work with before, during and after our stay. This island is fabulous - good fishing, so much wildlife and a truly easy-going feel.

Island paradise!

  • 5 of 5
There were 3 different families in our party and we had a truly memorable holiday. Just what was needed after 4 hectic days in New York-complete peace and relaxation. Wendy and Mark were efficient, friendly and very helpful. Windswept is a beautiful property and you really feel like you are staying somewhere a little bit special and different. The house is fitted out to a really high standard and it feels vey homely-not like a lot of rentals that are functional but a bit soulless. Love getting about on golf carts, the proximity of the beaches and all of the natural wonders around us-including the bioluminescence we stumbled across in the sea at night.

Would love to go back.....

Wow Wow & WOW!!!!

Wow Wow & WOW!!!!

My family stayed for a week. Two adults and 5 children spanning in age from 2-18 years.
We loved the privacy, the seclusion, the isolation! The views were so beautiful from EVERY room. We could watch crashing waves in a sunshine filled sky or thunderstorms rolling in from the distance or bright constellations against a black curtain sky during the night...all from the multi level viewing tower.
I can't say enough good things about Windswept. Everything is as pictured and as listed. Very well equipped. Toys, movies, video games, kitchen supplies, and towels. It's beautifully decorated and very clean. Using golf carts to get around the island was fun and useful. There was another beach you could only access by foot, but it was quite a walk and a bit of work to carry your beach supplies, however, way worth it! What a gorgeous beach! In the future, some sort of wagon would be super helpful.
Mark & Wendy went above & beyond the call of duty to make sure everything in the house ran smoothly and flawlessly. Very professional.

We hope to be back in 2014.

For us a fabulous contrast having had a few days in New York City, the island and property allowed us to really unwind and relax. For us it was a real home from home, but the importance of Mark and Wendy living on the island cannot be overstated, they were really helpful without ever being intrusive and when we had a small problem with the internet connection it was resolved in 10 mins. Would not hesitate in recommending a stay here.
