SEA BEAN -BOAT DOCKS, KAYAKS, GOLFCARTS INCLUDED...100 YARDS TO BEACH!

North Captiva Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10 to 12)

'Sea Bean' is the perfect retreat for your coastal adventures or for your relaxing beach vacation. This family vacation home is located on the barrier island of North Captiva. Just north of Sanibel and Captiva, and to the south of Cayo Costa, North Captiva is a bridgeless island accessed primarily by boat. It is a car-free, island with a relaxed pace. Sandy trails wind throughout the island and electric golf carts, bicycles and foot power are the standard means of transportation...shoes are optional! Over 4 miles of pristine white sand beaches wrap around the island's west and northern shores and lush mangrove forests fringe the east and southern coastlines. The Gulf of Mexico, Pine Island Sound, and Captiva Pass offer world-class fishing and nearby islands offer beach-lovers and boaters unforgettable adventures.

'Sea Bean' is located less than 100 yards from the beach...it is nestled among native palms along the edge of a small fresh water lake. Beautiful wading birds, song birds, ospreys and bald eagles are frequent lake visitors. With the house windows open, guests can enjoy the peaceful sound of the Gulf surf and the gentle rustle of palm fronds. Surrounded by vegetation, the house is wrapped by porches and decks on three sides. It offers seclusion and privacy while still being conveniently located for all island activities.

Completed in 2009, 'Sea Bean' is like-new and is fully provisioned for convenience, pleasure and comfort. On the main level, there are two master bedrooms with queen size beds and master baths. Both have French doors that open to the back porch overlooking the lake. A third bedroom has a full size bed and a half bath. A reading alcove has a queen size mattress that can sleep extra guests. The kitchen table seats eight and the island bar seats an extra four. The living room has a fireplace and 42' television with DirecTV. On the second level, a large loft has four twin beds, a double bed, and a secret 'Octopus Den' playroom for kids. A second level deck overlooks the lake and is a perfect place for quiet reading, sunbathing or stargazing. Wireless Internet connection is available throughout the house.

'Sea Bean' is located in Safety Harbor Club and its guests are entitled to the use of the Club's amenities including a large swimming pool, tennis courts, private beach access, docks and fishing pier, private waterfront restaurant, and an ice machine. Two golf carts, bicycles, and three sea kayaks are also included in the house rental.

There are several beaches to explore on the island and excellent shelling and fishing. Snook, Redfish, Snapper, and Spotted Sea Trout will usually bite a hook from the shore or a dock. Charter boats can be hired to take you out on a world-class Tarpon fishing or backwater fishing expedition. The island and its waters teem with unique, beautiful, interesting and rare wildlife...each day brings new discoveries and wonders.

We would like 'Sea Bean' to be the perfect retreat or base for your island adventures. Our goal is to meet or exceed your beach vacation expectations...book your reservation today and make 'Sea Bean' memories that will last a lifetime!

'Sea Bean' is owed by the Lord family (Randy, Stephanie and Piper) Randy is newly retired from a telecommunication company. He is currently working to build an organic farm in East Tennessee. Stephanie continues to run the previous said telecommunication company.

Stephanie Lord purchased this house in 2013

The Lords: 'We vacationed with a very large family group to North Captiva for Thanksgiving in 2012. It was the perfect family fun place to relax and enjoy family. We loved that the only access was by boat or private plane and that there were no cars on the island. The beaches are never crowded and it is not uncommon to have the beach all to ourselves. We loved the island so much we looked for a house that same week. Although many of the homes were beautiful, this home felt as though it was built just for us. This truly is a 'dream' house for us. We are offering this 'dream'' house for renting, to help cover the costs of the home and it makes us happy that our renters get as much enjoyment from 'Sea Bean' as we do.'

The Lords: 'We plan to have fun, adventures and make wonderful memories when we stay at 'Sea Bean' : sunsets at the beach, dinners and board games at the kitchen table, long beach hikes to see if we can make it to the southern tip of the island, sand castle building, beach combing, fishing off the docks during a full moon, cooking s'mores in the fireplace, fresh-caught fish on the grill, an Easter egg hunt in the sand, kayaking with manatees, see a family of bobcats walking through the back yard, stopping the golf cart for yet another tortoise crossing, outdoor showers under the stars, the chorus of crickets and frogs on a summer night, snorkeling along the shore, body surfing the day after a storm, exploring the mudflat to look for critters, jogging down the island's sandy trails, a spectacular sunrise...we will love enjoying it all with friends and family!'

Wedding bells on N.Captiva Island

What a beautiful place! We attended a wedding on this little piece of heaven in The Gulf of Mexico. We really hit the jackpot when we found Sea Bean! This home is so warm and inviting. Out of all the homes that our group of 35 rented, Sea Bean was the favorite. It wasn't the biggest or fanciest, but it was the one with the most charm and character :)

I have never written a review before - but this place was so great and the owners were so nice that I felt compelled to take some time to say that this place is absolutely AMAZING! The house is beautiful and clean and new... all the details are taken care of. The linens are cozy, the beds are comfortable (no sleeping on crackling rubber sheets), the beach towels are large and fluffy and there was enough for all of us and then some... Each room has an adjoining bathroom so it was a great place to share with other families. Our kids loved sleeping in the loft upstairs all together and the octopus den was equipped with a good variety of toys to keep them all busy. I really appreciated all the beach toys and lifejackets that were provided as well - its all those little things that you don't want to travel with and make a world of difference if they are provided. The owners are also part of the North Captiva Island Club AND the Safety Harbour Club so you have full access to all the amenities on the island - a huge perk. NCIC was very friendly and helpful with all our requests (they even supplied us with dishwasher detergent when we ran out). Seabean is so conveniently located too. Its close to both pools (walking distance to the Safety Harbour Club Pool) and walking distance to the beach. The view of the lagoon is pretty great too - we played a great game of 'spot the alligator' every night after dinner....not too mention all the birds that flock there. This island is truly paradise and well worth the slight inconvenience to get over here. I hesitate to give it rave reviews because I fear it will be all booked up when we try to come back next year...but the owners were amazing (even had flowers delivered to the house for my birthday) and deserve to be commended on their beautiful home and wonderful hospitality. See you next year - you better not be all booked up.
