HISTORY OF THE ISLAND

Located on Florida’s Southwest Gulf Cost of Mexico is the Paradise Island of Upper Captiva Island.

Upper Captiva Island is also called North Captiva Island and is located north of Captiva Island and south Cayo Costa Island.

Calusa Indians first inhabited Captiva Island over 6,000 years ago up until the conquistadors arrived and nearly wiped out the tribes.

Ponce De Leon sailed these waters in the early 1500’s and famous pirates frequented the Island such as Jose’ Gaspar. The Island earned its name from the women held “captive” by the pirates for ransom.

Some believe a pirate treasure is buried on these islands, just waiting to be discovered.

A hurricane in 1921 severed Captiva Island into two separate landmasses, thus creating the island that we now know as “Upper or North Captiva Island” There are no Bridges or roads to captiva. Access is only by boat or small aircraft. (Click “Getting Here” for information on getting to North Captiva Island.)

This lush secluded barrier island is famous for it’s breath taking sunsets and pristine white sandy beaches that offer true unspoiled natural beauty. A tropical island playground awaits you at upper Captiva Island, “Come enjoy the ultimate Island Experience!”

Voted one of the top 50 American Isles by Conde Naste Traveler- July 2001

Having been a professional Yacht Captain in the Carribbean for many years I have visited every island in the Carribbean. Discovering North Captiva I realized North Captiva offered the best of all worlds and was where I wanted to be. Having grown up in Atlanta Georgia, I learned to appreciate the scenic beauty and the privacy that North Captiva has to offer.

Yachting is all about pride of ownership. Having owned and operated numerous luxury charter yachts I know that clients appreciate the attention to detail and the pride of ownership that guest will experience when renting my home 'LAS OLAS'.

Steve purchased this house in 2010

North Captiva offers seclusion and privacy yet only 5 miles off shore. While the rest of the world is over whelmed with the problems of daily life, North Captiva is a sanctuary from the stresses of daily Life. Everyone on island is so warm and friendly. Quite often friendships are made by simply stopping in the golf cart to chat with neighbors on island. North Captiva represents a simpler time when life was about enjoying the scenic beauty that nature has to offer. Las Olas is located near the state park nature preserve on the higher elevation side of the island.

The beautiful views of the gulf and bay from the home. The sunsets and sunrises that can be experienced from the house are wonderful. The 10 foot ceilings and the large over sized bedrooms. The marble floors through out. The huge great room and kitchen with the vaulted ceilings are great for entertaining. Taking my dog for a morning walk on the beach and beach combing. The private heated Pool! The large screened in Lanai off the living room. The 5 story observation deck which affords 360 degree views and is a great way to enjoy the end of a perfect day on North Captiva.

Fabulous Dream House on North Captiva!

We had a group of eight at Las Olas and had an absolutely perfect vacation. The accommodations are wonderful and just as listed and pictured. The adults and children alike loved the proximity to the beach (enjoyable 1 minute golf cart cruise,) pool, hot tub, pool table, ping pong, etc. After touring the island, I didn't see any other house with as much to do. The house is extremely nice. And yes, the bedding is super comfortable. We will not think twice about returning to Las Olas.

Wonderful place to stay

I have been coming to North Captive over the last four years. We have stayed in several of the homes on the Island. I can say Las Olas is a wonderful place to stay. The home is very clean and well furnished. They have the most comfortable beds ever. Would have liked to bring the bed back home with me. Steve and Andrew were great. They were there to greet us at the doc on the day of the arrival. They showed us around the home and brought in our bags. The kitchen was great and it had everything you needed. The porch was wonderful for evening dinners and a glass of wine at night. The observation deck was a great place to see the sunrise and sunset. We had a great time in the pool and hot tub. The kids had a great time playing pool and ping pong. This home is very private and at night it is great for a little skinny dipping after the kids are in bed. I would highly reommend this home. Thank you Steve and Andrew for letting us stay in your wonderful home and we can't wait to come back.

Amazing house!

We just arrived home from our vacation at Las Olas. If you are looking at renting this home, we would highly recommend it. Steve and Andrew went out of their way to make us feel comfortable (even brought over coffee when we realized we didn't have it on our first morning there!). The house is immaculate. The beds are comfortable. The pool and hot tub are amazing. It was so fun to drive the golf carts around to all of the different beaches. We saw sharks, dolphins, manatee every day. We felt like we had a private island all to ourselves (didn't see anyone for the first few days). After 2 days, we felt like we had been relaxing for a week! We had a 9 month old and a 2 year old in our group, and Steve even put up a toddler gate which was wonderful. Would love to go back every year.
