About Joe

Bill and I are outdoor & wildlife lovers! We fish, hike and travel when we can. Growing up in Venice, Florida I have watched the state change from 'Old Florida' to 'New Florida'. North Captiva is a wonderful reflection of my childhood and the free spirit of 'Old Florida'. No worries, no snow (whats that?) and no shoes! I just love my cottage and all the island offers.

Joe purchased this house in 2004

What makes this house unique

If you love nature then this is for you! North Captiva is home to many native species of animals. The gopher tortoise is fun to watch grazing and strolling down the shell roads. Ospreys monitor the island from their giant nests where the babies call for their meals of fresh trout. Woodpeckers, herons and ibis meander everywhere. Even Indigo Buntings have stopped on our lawn during their migrations. Dolphins and manatees are just off the beach and the fishing is some of the best you will find. Hiking, shelling, swimming will keep you entertained and water sport equipment is available at Boats and Fun. Exploring the island by golf cart is fabulous fun!

Perfection...heaven on earth.

  • 5 of 5
A friend and I visited the cottage for 5 days and loved it. The location is one of the most private on the island--very well-kept. Great layout and use of space. Very quiet... The island itself is a paradise and this cottage fits right in. :)
Loved every minute there. It is a just a few minutes golf cart ride to your choice of gorgeous beaches...There simply is no place like it.

A few notes for your trip to this fabulous cottage. Sugar, flour and vegetable oil are not kept in the unit so include that on your grocery list, though you will find standard spice selections.

We really enjoyed out stay at the cottage. It was very clean and had everything you could possibly need and more. We loved exploring the island in the very reliable golfcart and saw a lot of wildlife. The beach is just a quick ride away and is beautiful! Thanks Joe for a very relaxing and stress-free experience!

Perfect Quiet Getaway

  • 5 of 5
This place was perfect for a quiet getaway on very peaceful island. The house is very clean and like new. My wife and I came here for 4 days for our wedding anniversary and right away we started planning a trip next year with our 4 kids (all under 9). The house is set up in the tree tops with lots of nature to observe. The house is well equipped with kitchen items with plenty of room. We appreciated the fully furnished house with all appliances, including use of dishwasher and clothes washer/dryer. This allows one to pack very lightly for the trip and will come in handy with kids. There are multiple beds and built in bunk beds for kids. Usage of the clubhouse pool was very nice as well. There was a small glitch in gaining access to it, but a quick text message to the owner was all it took for immediate response and resolution within an hour. The golf cart worked great and the trip to and from the island (did this twice) was seamless with Island Girl Charter. We stayed over the weekend and were looking for a church to attend Mass and this was easily accomplished by getting back to Pine Island with an early pick up on Sunday morning from Island Girl Charter and then a short drive to Our Lady of Miraculous Medal just down the road. The beaches are all but to yourself and have the perfect white fine sand with plenty of opportunity for shell hunting. The beach access was just a very short drive in the golf cart. There are many places for beach access throughout the island. The house had 2 beach chairs and an umbrella to bring with on the beach, which was essential in the hot sun. I would ask the owner to have more chairs available in the future or bring extra on your trip if you plan on sitting at the beach for many hours. There were plenty of beach towels available at the house. The people on the island were very friendly and helpful. This island and this house is the place to go if you are looking for a quiet getaway with opportunities to observe nature, spend quiet time reading a good book, sit by the beach, shell hunt, explore the island by golf cart, swim, eat good ice cream, watch the sunsets, appreciate the warm weather, and just plain Relax. And don't be afraid to bring your kids along, they will love it too and this house is set up very nicely to accommodate.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review! I am so glad that you enjoyed your trip and stay at our beach cottage. I will be making sure to add some additional beach chairs for the home right away. We look forward to seeing you back in the fall. I agree with you that the island is perfect for kids. Our kids have grown up going to the island often, and the safe natural environment lets kids be kids without the typical distractions of more developed islands. A little more effort to get to the island but well worth it!

Wonderful, relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5
This was our first trip to North Captiva & we fell in love. We vacationed over our spring break with our 3 kids (3, 6 & 8) and really can't say enough about how much we enjoyed the island. The house met our needs perfectly - kitchen was well stocked with all of the utensils & dishes you could need, the house isn't huge, but the high ceilings made it feel especially spacious (& really, how much room do you need?), and the beaches (all of them) & club/pool are all really quick rides in the golf cart (easily seated 2 adults & 3 little ones). The golf cart could probably use a tune-up as it was a little difficult to steer, but never had a problem with the battery or otherwise. The island is gorgeous - beautiful weather each day, saw so much wildlife, and we went a full week without a single honk or siren - ahhhh. Our trip unfortunately ended with a trip to the emergency room after our son came down with a bad case of croup, but even so, the island emergency staff was quick to arrive, very professional & quickly transported he & my husband by boat to the mainland where they were met by an ambulance -the emergency was not exactly what we'd planned, but nice to know the service was there! We'll definitely plan to come back.

Owner's Response: Glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay. I am sorry it had to end with an emergency trip to the hospital. One of the greatest things about North Captiva vs some of the other barrier islands is the airstrip, and 24/7 on site fire/emt. This makes emergencies much easier to handle. As to the golf cart issues, we have now included a golf cart from North Captiva Island Club, so that should be an issue in the future.
Hope to see you again!

Questionable

  • 3 of 5
Photos of the house are just as it is, very clean and comfortable. If you've ever stayed on the island then you know how important a reliable golf cart is and if you have your own boat then you know how important docking is. The listing says that a boat slip is included...it's not, that's an extra $40 per night ($2 per foot) at a dock that has no water to hose down you boat and no bumpers on the pilings, which means your boat gets scratched as the tide goes in and out. If not for the caretaker "loaning" us a beater cart we would not have had a way to get back and forth to the boat dock, as the one that comes with the house is inoperable. I emailed these facts to the owner and got no reply. Oh well. Overall, the resort seems to be going down hill. The pool was dirty with tiles missing. We've been going to North Captiva for over 10 years and from now on will rent through one of the island real estate groups.

Owner's Response: We appreciate your comments, and are sorry that you did not have an enjoyable stay. To clarify, a boat dock is not included with the rental. The golf cart had been damaged by a prior tenant, and we were unaware of the issue prior to your booking. We are now providing a 4 person cart through North Captiva Island Club that is reliable, with all bookings.
