About Kathy Rodriguez

We are a family from Pigeon Forge Tennessee that grew up in the Fort Myers area and have always loved Capitiva! Weekends were always spent boating to this island because of its 'Island Feeling' and beautiful private beaches. We eventually want to retire in this home so when we decided to construct it in 2007 we put in all the special features desired in a private home. We hope you enjoy our home as we do!!

Kathy Rodriguez purchased this house in 2009

Why Kathy Rodriguez chose Florida

We chose this location because of it's beautiful and private beaches. Captiva is also known as the #1 shelling beach in North America and my wife is a 'Shell Lover'.

What makes this house unique

You can enjoy a tranquil setting in the 2 & 1/2 story screened in Pool enclosure with a waterfall heated spa. The pool deck is large and has both shaded and sun areas for everyone. The entire first floor is a gameroom with a 12 foot shuffleboard table, foosball table, bar area, family room with large screen LCD television and DVD player, and a full bath. There are also 3 levels of decks offering both shaded and sunbathing areas and even a rooftop sundeck for the ultimate water view.

Dream come true. Stayed in this unbelievable home. It has everything you can think of. It was truly heaven on earth. The elevator made it possible for me to go and stay there, there's no way I can do steps. The home, beach and all the local bars are so welcoming. This is so much better then getting 5 hotel rooms where they have nothing you need and you can't even find a place to set on the beach. If you stay here it has everything and there's room for 10 to sleep, party and enjoy the pool.this has to be the best place I've ever been on vacation. Can't wait to go back.

Trip of a Lifetime

  • 5 of 5

We rented this magnificent home for our girl’s getaway reunion week. We were looking for a home that was spacious enough to accommodate all of us women but it also had to have plenty of bathrooms! This home certainly exceeded our expectations! All the bedrooms had private baths (5) and there was another half bath on the 2nd floor. It was equipped with an elevator which was wonderful to bring up our luggage and groceries (which certainly saved our backs and knees). One of my favorite parts of the house was the crow’s nest on the roof. We would watch the beautiful Captiva sunsets at night and bring our coffee up with us in the morning for the amazing sunrises. There are golf carts and bikes so you can go shopping, ride across the street to the beach or go to dinner. You can operate the golf carts on the roads in this area of Captiva. We only drove our cars one night during the entire week and that was to go to Sanibel for dinner. If we weren’t at the beach sunning and shelling, we were at the house pool and spa swimming and relaxing. We are already planning our next trip in September and would not stay anywhere else nor are we interested in looking anywhere else. Everything was just perfect! The home is magnificent!

Recapturing our Youth

  • 5 of 5

This amazing home was the site of our reunion . Some of us girls had been apart for over thirty years. This home provided us tons of space and privacy yet at the same time the intimacy we all needed! Absolutely a amazing space beautifully decorated every need anticipated. Not doing well with stairs the elevator literally made my vacation I could save myself for beach walking. The game room and pool area was our hang out and the upstairs porch morning coffee and late night girl chat. So much room to play games or just walk around. Being older my bed is so important well don't worry I wanted to take theirs home with me if that tells you anything! Location was perfect growing up in the area and living there forty odd I know. It's on a quiet street yet seconds from all the happenings and golf carts come with! It was perfect just glorious and we are doing it again the year!! Counting the days to spend a fabulous girlfriend week at the Lazy Palm.

Thanksgiving in Captiva

  • 5 of 5

This was just perfect for our family. Our two daughters and their husbands flew into Ft. Myers from Dallas along with our little grandson. Each couple had a bedroom with a private bath and our grandson also had his own room. My husband and I live on the east coast of Florida so met everyone at the house. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook a perfect Thanksgiving dinner. We rented the golf cart which made transportation to the beach so easy. The home was immaculate. Also decorated perfectly. The downstairs game room gave us so much to do playing shuffle board and ping pong while our little one slept. Pool was warm and inviting, Walkng to the Bubble room, Mucky Duck, and other restaurants was no more than five minutes. Did a dolphin boat tour out of South Seas Plantation and even before we left the dock there was a dolphin playing in the marina. The beach, which was no more than a five minute walk away was family friendly. The home also offered all the beach chairs, pails and shovels, umbrellas, beach towels you could possibly need. We are all daydreaming about coming back next year if our schedules can be coordinated. Cannot say enough about this lovely home. Oh! Just remembered.....there is an elevator which we thought we would never use but it made getting our suitcases, groceries and ourselves up and down the three plus flights perfect. And to top it all off, ther is a lovely crows nest off the master bedroom on the fourth floor which is a wonderful place to enjoy your morning coffee or stargaze.

Lazy as a Lazy Palm

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we entered the foyer, this incredible home welcomed us. What a beautiful design. Fantastic kitchen, dining room, living room & porch galore. Elevator to carry your luggage, groceries and tired folks up to the 3rd floor. The 4th level is a captain's look-out where we greeted each day at tree top level with the birds of the morning. Tucked amidst ferns, foliage and palm trees, we were totally at peace. We spent a lot of relaxing time in the warm pool and spa, hidden away from the road. Yet we were close enough for a stroll to the beach or restaurants. But most of the time we stayed in - Lazy as a Lazy Palm. Awesome week - Thank you Kathy!!

The Most Incredible Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

We picked the Lazy Palm to have a girls reunion. From the moment you open the door you can see the care and thought that went into this home. The decor is brilliant. The furniture so comfortable you don't want to get up! The elevator was a huge blessing not only to bring our suitcases and supplies up, but also for those of us that has a hard time with stairs. The views are simply amazing! From the top 'widow's walk' we viewed the beautiful sunrise every morning. From here you can see the Gulf of Mexico and also the bay side! In the evening we used the golf carts and drove to the beach to watch the spectacular sunsets! The (optional) golf carts are a must to have. You can take them any where on this area of the Island, from the beaches to shopping to dinner. (We recommend Doc Ford's for both appetizers, drinks and lunch or dinner.) Also for fine dining a short drive to Sanibel to Casa Ybel's for dinner. Our mornings started off with breakfast in the large kitchen that has everything you will need! Then off to the beach just down the street! And the Gulf of Mexico is so nice. The sugar sand is perfect for sun bathing, the beach one of the greatest in the world for shelling. And we even got lucky and observed a Mama and baby porpoise playing just a few feet from shore! One day 2 of us actually went parasailing! What a thrill, mark it off the bucket list! Then back to the house to swim in the beautiful pool with spa! We watched football on the large screen TV! Each bedroom is tastefully decorated (as is the whole home) and has it's own full bath! We couldn't have asked for a better place for our reunion! The owner Kathy was so pleasant to work with! Not only do I highly recommend this house, but we have already reserved it for next year! You will not be disappointed. This house has it all!

Car: recommended

Captiva is a beautiful quaint island and small village. There are no high rises and the beaches are fabulous and uncrowded. The wild life is awesome with dolphins, manatee, turtles, and birds. We are located so that you can walk every where or enjoy our optional golf cart. Shelling is some of the best any where.
