North Captiva Island House Rental Photos and Description
Luxury Beach Estate, 4 Bedrooms, 4 and 2 1/2 Baths, (Beds 8 To 10)
Paradise Palms 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 by boat or plane. It is a car-free, care-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. We want to make your stay in our home first class. And we started with the best location on the island and ended with many high quality decorations and décor. The home has just completed a full remodel from top to bottom. Every room was upgraded. We added an elevator, game room, and new playroom area for the small children to play.
Paradise Palm is perfectly placed on the North Bay side of North Captiva and it is nestled among native palms as you enter from the cart path. Once inside the home you will find an elegant yet casual Coastal Décor with an un-paralled view of the water and islands of North Captiva, your private beach and private dock. Climb the steps to the very private and largest roof level deck one the Island so that you and your guests can discretely sun bathe or watch the sunset and sunrise. Beautiful wading birds, song birds, ospreys and bald eagles are frequent visitors. With the house sliding pocket doors open, guests can enjoy and bring the peaceful sound of the Gulf surf and the gentle rustle of palm fronds inside. The home is wrapped by very wide and relaxing porches and decks on three sides with ample comfortable seating strategically placed. Dine on the porch with the evening breeze or have coffee with the sunrise. Swim in our heated pool with plenty of decking and seating to lounge in or out of the sun. Private boat dock with quick access to the best fishing you will ever experience or have a fun day fishing/relaxing on the dock, some of the best fishing and dolphin watching is right off our dock. Private beach with gentle surf is perfect for the young ones as the adults sit in the shade of the indoor or outdoor Lanai. For those who would like to unwind, grill your catch of the day on the outdoor grill and enjoy your favorite libation at bar area.
Paradise Palms was completely rebuilt in 2008 after hurricane Charlie in 2004 destroyed the home and we are in the midst of a beautiful interior renovation, enhancing the private landscaping and soon we will be increasing the dock to allow better fishing and fun. This home is fully provisioned for convenience, pleasure, comfort and the views. All three en-suite master bedrooms have huge king beds and sliding glass doors that will open your room to the views.

Stephanie Lord purchased this house in 2013
Why Stephanie Lord chose North Captiva Island
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 'Paradise Palms' as we do.'
What makes this house unique
The Lords: 'We plan to have fun, adventures and make wonderful memories when we stay at 'Paradise Palms' : 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 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, taking 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!'
