North Captiva Island is a little slice of heaven. Bring your family and friends to unwind, re-connect and just have fun. Our home is your home. Enjoy multiple sun decks, an outdoor shower and Club membership. Our top floor has gorgeous 360 degree views of the Gulf, the bay and the island; the perfect place to watch the sunset... all steps from the endless warm sandy beach. The Club amenities include a huge heated swimming pool, a second pool, jacuzzi and 2 Har-Tru tennis courts.
The house comes with the use of a red golf cart, we call it 'Ruby' . No need the to pack beach towels, there are plenty. The house has 3 levels. The first level has the kitchen, the living room, the dining space, the lanai, a large deck, bathroom and 2 bedrooms (1st: queen bed with on suite bathroom and 2nd: 2 single beds). Level 2 is the master suite including a bathroom and private deck. Level 3, an extra sleeping space, is like a little studio in the sky, 4 walls of windows, a deck, TV, desk and couch. There are two futon mattresses that can be pulled out and used anywhere in the house as extra beds.
We have found a place that magically melts 'mad rush' into 'hammock heaven'. Your most difficult decision of the day will be 'beach or pool'. This is a place where you can swim, hot tub, kayak, play tennis, seek shells, fish, jog on the beach, bird watch, soak up the sun, eat out, bar-b-q in, watch sunsets or...just do nothing.
North Captiva Island is north of Sanibel and Captiva, approximately four miles long and 1/2 mile wide. Dolphins and manatees are frequent visitors to our shores. The 700 acre State Land Preserve is home to many migratory and nesting birds. The island is special because there are no bridges connecting it to the mainland so there are no cars.
From Fort Myers Airport a private shuttle service is available to bring you and your groceries to the marina where you pick up the water taxi. The vacation begins with the water taxi ride across the bay and among the mangroves ( approx. 25 minutes). As you dock you will be greeted by the knowledgeable and resourceful Vicki who will make sure you get settled in.

The first time we stepped off the boat onto North Captiva Island we were dazzled. It was the complete opposite of the busy city we had just come from. Quiet, natural, car-less and carefree. We couldn't believe it was just a 3 hour plane flight and no passports required. We wanted to share the experience with friends and family.
I wish we had room for a hammock in our apartment but we don't so we really enjoy the one at the house in North Captiva
