Overview

North Captiva Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

This beautiful home is extremely close to the ocean and a Florida sugar sand beach which is often uninhabited except by wading birds, ghost crabs, osprey and snook. This property features direct beach access so you can walk right onto the beach and into the Gulf of Mexico located about 100 steps from our front door. North Captiva Island features some of the most secluded beaches in the continental United States. Many times of the year, your family may be the only ones on the beach.

North Captiva Island is only accessible by water taxi and there are no cars on the island. Transportation on the island is by golf cart which is provided with your rental, walking or bicycle. There are no paved roads, only sandy paths winding through tropical vegetation. It is truly a unique setting. Palm trees, gumbo limbo trees and beautiful flowers are everywhere.

Our favorite activities are fishing, shelling, swimming and exploring the beach and state land. There are a large number of wading birds, gopher tortoises, raccoons, brown pelicans, osprey, egrets, cormorants, bald eagles, ibis and sanderlings. There are two very nice swimming pools maintained by our island club a short walk or golf cart drive from our house. Kayaks and bicycles are also available at no charge through the island club. Tarpon, sea trout, red fish, snook, and snapper may be caught from the shore. Shelling is a daily activity on the island. North Captiva is often described as the shelling capital of North America.

Our house, Perfect Placement, is beautifully appointed and completely remodeled after hurricane Charlie. The kitchen is large and modern with Corian counters, new appliances and gulf views. The house is large enough that 2 families of four can stay comfortably. There are 2 bedrooms on the first floor: a master bedroom with a gulf view and a guest bedroom with a double bed. There are 2 full baths on the first floor. On the second floor there is a large bedroom with a private porch and an excellent gulf view which could serve as a second master bedroom. There is also a bunk bed room with 2 sets of bunk beds providing sleeping for 4. Both bedrooms share a hall bath.

Because the house is on the west shore of North Captiva we are often witness to stunning sunsets which can be observed from your bedroom or the back deck. Don't forget your camera to help capture some memories. If you are lucky you may see Dolphin playing in the surf, Tarpon showing past the first breakers and the legendary stoop of the brown pelican fishing. This has got to be one of the prettiest and most unusual places you will ever see.

About Alicia Kahler

Our family includes Mark and Becky and our 7 children, and 3 dogs (an Airedale and 2 Shihtzus). We have 4 children married, 1 grown and working in Maine, 2 in college. Mark is a FP physician in Kansas City and Becky is a homemaker who loves children, animals, jail ministry, and working with kids in the inner city.

Alicia Kahler purchased this house in 2001

Why Alicia Kahler chose North Captiva Island

We love the island, the trees, flowers and the uncrowded beaches. We have had our best vacations here walking the beach, playing games, praying, reading and enjoying the wildlife.

What makes this house unique

This home is a 15 second walk to the beach from our front yard. We have one of the few homes on the island which has direct beach access. Driving around the island in the golf cart observing island flora and fauna is unique to this place. We are members of the North Captiva Island Club and you will have access to all the amenities of the Club including 2 large swimming pools and a hot tub when you stay in our home. The beaches are the least crowded we have ever been on. The nighttime stars are spectacular and we have watched sea turtles digging a nest on the side of our house.

Great Beach House

  • 4 of 5
The house was in the perfect location on the island. The views were great from all rooms facing the Gulf of Mexico. My boys could walk 30 yards out the front door and be on the white sand beach. The beach in front of house is the best on the island. Make sure to book a fishing time with the Fishing Lady who lives down the street. It was the highlight of our trip.

Great rental experience

  • 4 of 5
Superb location near beach with water views from 2 of the 3 bedrooms and from entire common living space on main floor. Heated outdoor shower--awesome! 2 dining table areas, great for games on one and food on the other. Great decks and screened porch. Owner was very nice to deal with over phone and email.

Only down side at all keeping this from 5-star rating is one of the beds--mattress worn such that 2 sleepers roll toward middle of bed. Beds and sleeping are a big deal to most people, so I would suggest replacing that one.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5
This home is absolutely stunning. The views of the ocean are unbelievable! Just walking distance (literally across a sand road) to the beach. The rooms are all beautiful. The suite on the first floor has an amazing view! The owners take great care and pride in this home and it definitely shows. I have stayed in this home twice now, while traveling to North Captiva and I wouldn't suggest staying anywhere else! Couldn't say enough good things about my experiences.

Gorgeous rooms!

  • 5 of 5
This house is amazing. Open floor plan provides plenty of room for large families or groups of friends. Great for entertaining. We come here for family reunions every year. It is a great place to be with family and friends. The rooms are beautifully appointed with everything you need. The balcony affords gorgeous views of the sunset. The beach is just down the private walk. There is an outdoor shower and foot bath to keep the sand off. There is also an outdoor grill to cook up your fresh catch. This place is a little piece of paradise.

Beautiful Spacious House

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here with a small group of friends and really enjoyed the house. The interior is very nice and well decorated. You are not "minutes away" from beach you are "minute" away. The views during sunset are really good too. We spent every night eating out on the screened in porch. It was nice to be close enough to hear the waves crashing.

Great location and layout, needs some updates

  • 4 of 5
Wonderful home and great location. Needs some love though, dull knives, raggedy outdoor cushions, no wine glasses, dry wall patches that need painting.

Still gets four stars as it is a very nice layout and right next to the beach!
