About Laura Nyman

We try as often as possible to get to our beach house on sunny Captiva Island. We are very happy to share this piece of paradise with friends, family and guests.

Laura Nyman purchased this house in 2011

Why Laura Nyman chose Captiva Island

When we visited Captiva Island for the first time we knew we wanted to be a part of this wonderful and close knit commumity. Captiva is a small island (just 300 homes), has a spectacular beach, and is surrounded by the ocean. The vibe is so relaxed and friendly. We all begin to unwind as soon as we cross the causeway onto our tropical Island. The beach is rarely crowded and is a wonderful place to relax while watching the birds and passing dolphins. We have enjoyed having friends and family join us at A Shore Thing. The memories we are making on Captiva will be with us forever.

What makes this house unique

We looked at many properties on the Island and fell in love with A Shore Thing. The proximity to the beach was my husbands favorite part, while I preferred the private HEATED pool surrounded by lush plantings. I love the privacy of the backyard. I love sitting on a lounge chair looking up at the bright blue sky and hearing the waves on the beach. We had our heart set on being in the 'Village' as well. This enables us to walk everywhere! Our daily walk to Starbucks is guaranteed exercise :) Our girls love the location because of how close we are to the Captiva Library. They love books, movies and the children's activities offered. Overall, the location can't be beat so we jumped to purchase this home!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Laura:



I would say it's great being home again, but my enthusiasm is a little dampened by the fact that we all had such a great time in your home. Everything worked out so well for us--even the washing machine wasn't a problem! The pool area was a perfect place to hang out--it was always warm in the back, even when the beach was cool. The bedroom arrangement was perfect for our family, especially with the two young ones. The six year old loved having the library close by for books and movies.



Hopefully, we will be able to do it again sometime in the future.

Thank you so much for allowing us to use your wonderful home!



Sincerely,

Fred

Fabulous return trip

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough about Captiva and this lovely home. We continue to return to the Island and A Shore Thing time and time again. Why vacation anywhere else? This home has a great location. It is close to Andy Rosse, the library and the beach. It's location on the beach is quiet, while also being a quick walk to the Mucky Duck and Yolo beach activities. I can't say enough about the house, which has had some upgrades since our last stay. We will return again next year without a doubt. Thank you Laura!

beautiful back yard with pool

  • 5 of 5

I dont throw around superlatives but this house was PERFECT for five adults and one baby. I cant think of one negative.(A large pot for boiling pasta and corn would be a help) Dont miss the Sannibel farmers market on Sunday morning and the nature preserve. Would definitely rent this property in the future.

Made it Hard to Return to Reality

  • 4 of 5

This was our first visit to Captiva, but definitely won't be our last. A Shore Thing was a perfect getaway for us, our two adult children, and our son's fiancee. The home was very clean, kitchen well-stocked, and there are lots of extra linens and beach towels (a nice touch for those flying in and who are unable to bring along those extras needed at the beach). The house is right across the street from a short path which leads rights to the beach. This allowed us to spend most of the day on the beach and then easily return to spend the late afternoons by the pool. There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance. Some favorites included The Green Flash, Key LIme Bistro, and The Mucky Duck. Shelling on the beach was incredible. The beach was pristine, the water a teal blue allowing us see to the ocean floor, and the beautiful palms and flowers gave the feeling that we were on a tropical vacation. It was very hard to say good-bye.

Perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

This was our second stay at this property now called A Shore Thing. It was as delightful as we remembered. The decor is charming and home very cozy. It has everything you will need from comfy beds in spacious rooms to good showers with lots of towels, which was a necessity for the four of us. Going from beach to heated pool with two young kids was a daily requirement. The best part is the location! Easy, short walk to beach and to town for good eats and activities. The only very minor short comings relate to attention to details. For instance, there was no colander, welcome coffee packet with filters, guest book and ability to open the big gate to park the rented bikes. The realty company misinformed us about the pool jets and fountain we enjoyed during our last visit and sadly didnt get to reexperience this time. They do work! Again, all very minor and no reason not to stay at this wonderful home. It truly comes highly recommended from us and we will be Shore to come back. Thanks Laura!

As great as we had hoped!

  • 5 of 5

This home was exactly as was advertised and even better! The location is truly ideal, a very short walk from the beach and town. It is just across from the library, where they have a great selection of dvds and books, and from the bay which has a fabulous restaurant to have drinks on the bay or take a sunset cruise. The homeowner, Laura, was very attentive and the staff at the realty company were most helpful. Everything is as it appears in the photos, but is even better when you experience it...the great mattresses, plush towels, top of the line pool lounges and the pool heated to a very comfortable temperature. The sliding pocket doors that separate the master bedroom from the rest of the house was a great bonus. Captiva is fabulous and this house is a find. Go and enjoy!
