In a place like Florida where paradise seems to be every place you look, North Captiva Island reminds us of the Florida we remember from years gone by. When we first visited the island, we fell in love with the beauty and serenity of the island, as well as gorgeous white beaches. Our happiest moments are spending time with our family and friends in a place that makes you feel welcome and we reluctantly leave the island feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.

The Owner purchased this house in 2010

We chose to buy “Havana Breeze” on North Captiva Island because it was truly a rare find. Steps from the beach with views that can range from golden orange and red sunsets glowing over the Gulf of Mexico, dolphins swimming, pelicans flying above, or the sandpipers dancing along the shoreline. The beaches are pristine and uncrowded, with many locations to gather seashells. We are within walking distance of the 700-acre state land preserve and enjoy walking for miles on the beaches and the preserve without seeing any signs of civilization except our own footprints in the sand.

Havana Breeze has been designed to accommodate all of your senses. Our home features breathtaking views from both screened in porches, an upgraded kitchen, inside and alfresco dining, satellite TV, DVD systems, a stereo system, and wireless high-speed 10Mbs internet. Our spacious home features luxury bedding, Lexington furniture, and tropical artwork that keep our guests coming back year after year.

Havana Breeze includes membership to the North Captiva Island Club that has 2 heated swimming pools, 2 tennis courts, hot tub, gym, basketball court, Kid Camp Otter, kayaks, bicycles, and other amenities available for guests.

PRO's...
Tanya and Bill were so patient and helpful. We did not realize it was an island, literally, until I booked it and my daughter asked me why we had to leave our cars...I think this was the best mistake ever made by us!
The house was bigger and more updated than pics show. I was pleasantly surprised by the natural sunlight in the home. Everything worked and no surprises except the view from the home. The trees and foliage have grown so the view of the beach from the second floor is not quite as good as the pics, but that is nature. We still saw some of the ocean and never missed a sunset. The beds were ohh so comfy too! We even had a turtle reside with us, ( under the house of course) and we named him Calypso! He is very cool and not a bother at all. He hangs out and does his thing but will stop to say hi!! Internet, satellite, technology was fine, no problems at all.
We saw the meteor showers from the beach on 8-11-13 and also from the front porch area.
Caught quite a few trout right off the beach!

Cons: the only problem was getting another golf cart. Long story short, I had one reserved ( the las one they had at boats and fun) to use on out last day. I got it and almost got stranded as the axle broke after a half an hour.
Thank goodness I was near the main area. They did refund my money and I lucked out and rented a private one for the last day. The residents are very ice BUT...the problem is vacationers allow children to drive the carts and then they hightail over bumps and bust them up.
I am really surprised guests do not respect rules or property of the Island and saw kids 8 to 14 driving around. We also saw guests piling in 6 or more on the golf carts which breaks them down also..
Besides that ( which was an issue since there were 6 of us and the golf carts allow 4, or the rules say 4) it is a must do vacation.try to communicate with owners and get some island knowledge.
Havanas Breeze....everything they said it was ...we will be back!
We promised Calypso!!!

Havana Breezes - Paradise Found!

  • Submitted: Oct 14, 2011

First time visitors to North Captiva, but we will definitely be back! Our house, Havana Breeze, was exactly as described, the NCIC staff was very responsive to our needs, and Island Girls provides top-notch transportation! Special thanks to Josh and Sara Boinske for their attention to detail starting at our first call and throughout our entire stay.

Best advice is to plan ahead for food and supplies. Though our house was adequately stocked with utensils, etc., it would have been nice to have simple things like Saran Wrap, foil, etc.

If you are looking for man-made adventure, this is NOT the place for you. If you prefer quiet beauty which allows you to ignore the Blackberry, the laptop, and the hassles of "real life" for a little while, this IS the place for you. Even our 18 and 13yo daughters were quick to appreciate how enjoyable it can be to disconnect.

We will be back ASAP!

Stayed April 2011, traveled with family
