The village of Upper Captiva: The village of Upper Captiva sits on the northern tip of North Captiva Island, a secluded tropical island in Southwest Florida. This bridge-less island is unique among the sandy coastal barrier islands of Florida. North Captiva Island is surrounded by the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico and Pine Island Sound, about six miles off the mainland of Florida. Boca Grande lies to the north and Captiva and Sanibel lie to the south.

This tropical island is one pearl in the necklace of 'outer islands' embracing Pine Island Sound. Access is only by boat or private airplane. No cars! No crowds! This has assured that the island remains unspoiled and unhurried. Its sandy beaches are decorated with an endless supply of driftwood and seashells surpassing that of the legendary Sanibel/Captiva beaches. Upper Captiva is a truly unique combination of comfort and luxury in an idyllic tropical

Best Vacation Yet!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 stayed in the Hidden Beach House for 7 days in July 2009. We absolutely were excited about going to the house. Once we arrived the exceeded our expectations. We had all the comforts of home! It was exactly as it was discribed on the website. The owners once we met in person were like old firends and ever so welcoming to have us stay in their home. This was one of our best vacations. It is a vacation for those who are not wanting alot of external attractions. The only attraction we did was rent a speedboat for the day. We visited the nearby barrier islands and walked a beach that was a nature preserve. Beautiful shells were seen even an area where the sea turtles lay and hatch eggs. There were dolphins swimming all around us. A manatee was spotted on our trip to Captiva. How cool! The biggest decisions we had to make daily was 'Do we go to the beach or pool today. We saw numerous beautiful sunsets but did not make it up early enough to see the sunrise...we say next time! We will most likely be returning to the Hidden Beach House.

THE place to stay for a family of 4-5!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved North Captiva & Hidden Beach House!

One of the things we liked most about this house is that Pat & Tom have made use of the space underneath the house with a wooden deck, pool table, dart board, bar, mini-fridge, BBQ, hammocks & it all opens out to the pool. Probably 90% of all houses on the Island do not have a set-up anything like this so it really does differentiate the property from others on the island.

Also, Pat & Tom were a joy to work with and we appreciated all of their personal touches to make our stay so enjoyable. So nice to have the golf cart for exploring the island with our young kids, they just loved the golf cart. We also thought the location of the house was perfect and found some of the beachfront properties can be very windy, so it was nice to hang out at our little oasis on very windy days.

People will read in the reviews that the photos don't do it justice, and we couldn't agree more. Not sure when, but we will definitely be back to Hidden Beach House!

We have been to North Captiva a total of four times. The last three have been spent at the Hidden Beach House. It is always an amazing experience. Tom and Pat are so kind and have truly thought of everything to make your visit as comfortable and relaxing as possible. The house is always very clean and the beds are amazing. The outside set up is one that works for everyone. My kids love the heated pool, my husband loves the bar and pool table/dart board, and I enjoy the hammock watching all the others.... If you are looking for a little bit of Heaven on Earth...try North Captiva and the Hidden Beach House.

It is a short walk or quick ride in the golf cart to reach the pristine natural beach of North Captiva Island. We on Hidden Lane are in the popular “close to everything” neighborhood of Jose’s Hideaway. The house is part of the beach lying on one of the highest coastal “back dunes” about 200 steps from the windswept shore of the wide open “fore dune” environment. There are only four other homes scattered on the secondary dunes between you and the Gulf of Mexico.

The shady bay side maritime forest and harbor side facilities are equally

convenient. The golf cart and bicycles are provided at no extra cost for exploring the island. A variety of beach accessories include beach chairs, beach towels, skim boards, kayaks and much more. Transportation to the Island is available by water taxi/ferry by fare. Boat rentals and fishing charters are also available nearby.

Other Activities: Kayaking, Shelling, Boating
