North Captiva is part of the Charlotte Harbor chain, north of Sanibel and Captiva, approximately four miles long and 1/2 mile wide. White sand beaches, shelling and world-class fishing are just some of the treasures this island has to offer. Nature abounds here with regular sitings of dolphins and manatees from the beaches. The 700 acre State Land Preserve provides a sanctuary for many migratory and nesting birds.

From Fort Myers Airport a private shuttle service is available to bring you grocery shoping and deliver you to the ferry. The ferry is approximately 25 minutes. Upon arrival you will be greeted, introduced to the island and taken to our home.

About Cindy Maynard

Bob and I live in Vermont. North Captiva provides a great reprieve from our long winters. We owned and operated two adventure travel companies and now have an organic seed garlic farm in Vermont (Green Mountain Garlic).

Cindy Maynard purchased this house in 2006

Why Cindy Maynard chose North Captiva Island

We both fell in love with North Captiva the moment we stepped on the island. The quiet natural state of the island is unique and refreshing. The beaches are lovely and the wildlife is fascinating. Bob loves to fish and the fishing here is world class.

What makes this house unique

We have tried to create a clean, open and airy feel though out the house. We have beautiful views in every direction. This a great house for a family vacation. Very well equipped with all the comforts of home. Plenty of space for everyone to spread out and have fun. Enjoy the 2 cruiser bikes to explore the island and the Concept II rowing machine to get some exercise out on the deck!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We left North Captiva yesterday ... it is always hard to leave ... dolphins followed the boat, leaping out of the water as if to say good-bye.

We absolutely LOVED your home!!! Thank you so much for sharing it with us. Would love to rent from you again sometime. Everything was beautiful, clean, well appointed & supplied. Can't say enough good things.

Exactly what we expected and more! Thank you for sharing your beautiful butterfly beach home with others! Tropical, remote island makes it feel like we were really far away, especially with no cars, just golf carts, boats & walking. I also like the fact that there's only 1 television in the whole house so if you want to see a movie or event on TV then everyone congregates upstairs in one, big comfy room! Best sunset views I've seen in a while & I grew up in Florida! Great selection of DVDs, novels & games, plus, wonderful artwork all over the house created by owner. Beds and furnishings were super comfy, but our favorite part was exploring. Getting a fishing guide was the best idea we had with catching over 50+ large snook in the pass. Cindy was very helpful in coordinating our arrival with caretaker/ bellman , "Mr Sherman". It was Definitely a plus to rent a home with membership to the North Captiva Island Club. Their pools and equipment rentals kept everyone active. Our gang kept the local restaurant, Barnacles, in business from cobia fish tacos,lobster mac&cheese to yummy ice cream. If you have a fishing boat, like we do, it pays to make buddies at Barnacles with the mgr or Tyler and ask them to give your boat a "private" slip around back. A little farther driving the golf cart from house than the club's docks, but better overall for your boat- especially on busy holiday weeks like we had. Our favorite boat ride restaurants: Cabbage Key; Tarpon Lodge Restaurant (Pineland Marina) & Gramma Dots (Sanibel Marina)

Island get away

  • 5 of 5
Great family vacation, house was perfect! Fully stocked kitchen, open floor plan, nice size rooms. Island was a lot of fun to explore...we went fishing, walked the beaches, and kayaked all over looking for manatee's. The club house was great for the kids- 2 pools and a pool bar for the adults:) This was our first time on this island and we will be back for sure.

Lovely home on secluded island

  • 5 of 5
Our group of seven (three adults and four teens) thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Butterfly Breeze. The home is open, airy and beautifully decorated. Like most homes on North Captiva, Butterfly Breeze has a reverse floor plan so make sure everyone can climb stairs. The home is in a great location on the island and enjoys NCIC privileges (pool, kayaks, etc.) The house includes two golf carts which was a definite plus for us. The owner, Cindy, was very helpful in answering our questions. We hope to plan a return visit to North Captiva and lovely Butterfly Breeze soon!

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5
Our family enjoyed our stay at North Captiva and Butterfly Breeze. The house went beyond my expectations. The listing for the house was and photos were accurate.The house was very well kept, and clean. The owners were great! If I had any questions Cindy would either talk to me on the phone or if I emailed her she was right back answering my questions that same day. I would recommend this house for anyone looking for a relaxing vacation in a beautiful home. We will without a doubt stay at Butterfly Breeze again! My children are ages 17,20 and 23 and before we left our wonderful vacation to come home they were already asking when we could come back.

Fantastic property on a beautiful island

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four visited North Captiva Island over the fourth of July week and found Butterfly Breeze to be an absolute delight. The layout of the home was perfect with three bedrooms and two baths on the second floor and the living, study (with pull out couch) and kitchen areas all on the third floor making quiet spaces for nappers or early risers. From the rooftop balcony, we found ourselves perfectly situated to enjoy the views as we sipped coffee as the sun rose over the bay and wine as the sun set over the gulf. The kitchen was nicely appointed with pots, pans, spices and all the necessary equipment to cook our meals.

Great property and an amazing vacation experience for our family. We look forward to returning for future family vacations.
