Upper Captiva also known as North Captiva Island is the best-kept secret in Florida. Only four miles long and half a mile wide, North Captiva is a Caribbean-style barrier island accessible only by a short boat ride. There are no cars and no paved roads (transportation is only by electric golf cart on palm tree covered sandy roads!)

The Island abounds with outdoor beauty. Over 700 acres of natural habitat have been preserved for the protection of endangered wildlife.

There are so many things to do and see here on Upper Captiva Island.

The wildlife sanctuary and wilderness park is great for hiking and bicycling.

Migratory and nesting birds such as osprey, herons, egrets wood storks, bald and sea eagles, pelicans and over 500 other species can been seen at different times of the year. Gopher tortoises and sea turtles roam this island Wonderland freely.

Manatees, dolphins and sea otters are regular sights from the islands shores!

Numerous activities are available on this unspoiled island for visitors such as beach combing, bird watching, fishing, swimming, shelling, dolphin watching, nature walks, boating, reading, photographing wild life, stargazing, kayaking, and best of all doing absolutely nothing but relaxing in your own private Island Paradise.

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

About Steve

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

Why Steve chose North Captiva Island

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

North Captiva's Best

North Captiva's Best
  • 5 of 5
Las Alas is the greatest! This house is wonderful - beautifully decorated, equipped with the best beds, linens, towels, furniture. Great panorama views from all decks. Very private with gorgeous landscaping. I took home many decorating and landscape ideas for my own Florida home. We could have stayed all week in the house and been happy with all the entertainment options (pool table, horseshoes, ping pong table, pool, direct TV, Pandora radio, board and video games, books) , but we also enjoyed the wonders of the islands. The house is positioned close to the best island beach. The house beach chairs are the best! The house is equipped with ocean kayaks and a trailer, so it was easy to launch kayaks into the lagoon to explore the harbor and beyond.

This house was also fully stocked with all high end supplied needed. No way to run out of any essential like toiler paper, soap, paper towels, garbage bags, gourmet spices, laundry soap, and tons of soft colorful beach towels and bath towels. This might seem like trivia, but when you are isolated on an island with essentially no stores, it makes the trip carefree. I have heard many others in more expensive rentals that did not have basics and that is a good way to interfere with vacation fun.

This house will not disappoint, in fact, it will make you love it more each day!

Awesome Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from our third vacation on the island. Las Olas was, by far, the most beautiful and best equipped home we have rented. Steve and Andrew were waiting for us with a trailer when we arrived and were attentive to all of our needs. We were given privacy yet received immediate help when we asked. We enjoyed the gorgeous views from the eagle's nest every morning with a cup of coffee and every evening with a glass of wine or cocktail. We explored the beach in the morning and relaxed in the pool and hot tub afternoons and evenings. The home was very comfortable - more than enough space for 9 adults. Quality towels, linens and beach towels were provided. We recommend Las Olas without reservation. A wonderful place to slow down, and reconnect with those you love.

Awesome vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5
Las Olas was just as wonderful as all the reviews have said! It's our new favorite get-away destination! The house is spacious, clean, and tastefully decorated. There are comfortable chairs, chaises, hammocks, etc. EVERYWHERE inside and outside of this house! It is the perfect place to relax with family or chill out by yourself and take a nap. The roof top lookout is an awesome place to watch the sunsets and enjoy the views. The lot is quiet and private and nestled behind beautiful foliage. Even our teenagers found plenty to do between the swimming pool, ping pong and pool tables, kayaks, and of course, the beach, which is just a quick walk or golf cart ride away. (They didn't even want to use the Xbox or watch tv!).
North Captiva is definitely a best kept secret! You can do as much or as little as you like. It was the perfect vacation for us and we would most definitely recommend Las Olas to anyone wanting to come to North Captiva.

The Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Everything in Las Olas was exactly as described. The home is beautiful and looks just like the pictures. The beds are comfortable, the house is clean and the owner is very helpful when you arrive and leave and also if any questions arise during your stay. This had to be our most relaxing vacation ever. We will definitely be returning to Las Olas.

Perfect House, well maintained!!

  • 5 of 5
Steve and Andrew take pride in their home. It shows. There was so much thought put into the house. I can't think of a single thing it was missing. The pool was perfect with shade or sun available at all times of the day. The hot tub was in an area where using it was possible even during very hot days. The home has a working reverse osmosis system so that water was drinkable out of the system. The exterior decks were perfect for coffee in the morning, lunch or dinner. The Bocce balls, Pool table and table tennis are all wonderful additions for a beach vacation. Steve will send you plenty of information about the island so that newcomers may plan adequately. It is such a wonderful vacation that i recommend this house to EVERYONE!
