BEACH FRONT HOME 30 STEPS TO THE GULF OF MEXICO
Keywords: BEACH FRONT HOME ON NORTH CAPTIVA ISLAND.
We are located on the northern tip of the island... on a pristine white sandy beach overlooking the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico known as "Rum Point". There are 4 acres of private undeveloped land to the back of the property filled with tropical birds and island wildlife... this makes our home very private and quiet!!!
To the front of our home is the Gulf of Mexico, just 30 steps and you can walk right in to turquoise waters!
Once you arrive at the dock, you will be directed to your golf cart which will be your island transportation during your stay, our island has no cars, only lushly lined sandy trails and golf carts! The property is a short 5 minute golf cart ride from the dock. Once you get settled into Rainbows End, you can explore the island with the furnished golf cart, take advantage of our optional Island Club VIP Membership which offers free bicycle and kayak use, free beach chairs and umbrellas, use of 2 swimming pools, tennis courts and other VIP amenities, or just relax and enjoy this magical beach house.
When traveling to a barrier island a beach front rental is really a must! The rhythmic sound of waves softly crashing just feet from your dinner table, spectacular sunsets from the porch or the beach, walk directly into the sparkling waters of the Gulf at any time, watch dolphins swim off your front porch most any day!
The island also offers miles of nature trails for hiking and exploring, over 600 acres of Federal Wildlife Preserve is one of the island’s many treasures. Miles of pristine and un-populated beaches, and depending on wind direction…always a calm beach to enjoy somewhere on the island.
North Captiva Island is a true offshore island, boat or plane access only, golf carts and bicycles on sandy trails vs cars and roads, yet all the conveniences of shore. The island has about 300 home owners, 4 bars/restaurants, a popular pool bar & grill, marina grill, small convenience store, guided fishing and boating tours, gift shop, boat rentals, grocery deliveries, etc. Once you arrive, you won’t want or need to leave!
Ferries run throughout the day, $20 to shore, 20 minute boat ride, you can leave almost anytime, you just won’t want to! Also daily tour boats depart for island hopping, dolphin watching and grocery runs.
Give us a call or email, we would love to have you visit!!!!!!! The only bad part is, you won't want to leave :)

About Mindy Strand
Moved to South Florida 7 years ago from Texas and absolutely love it! Sunshine year round and beautiful white sandy beaches. We own and manage a small group of vacation properties on Ft Myers Beach and North Captiva Island. Live here full time, work here part time :) Once I moved here I became a licensed Realtor and specialize in helping others relocate to the area or find the perfect vacation rental. So if you get down here and decide its where you want to be, I can help you find your next dream home in paradise!
Mindy Strand purchased this House in 2016
Why Mindy Strand chose Lee County
Best location on the island, hands down! Located at the point of the island overlooking Captiva Pass, here you have your own private beach with dolphins jumping, perfect sunsets and star gazing at night. No sharing the beach like you would on some other parts of the island, this is your own private paradise!
What makes this House unique
Your very own beach to relax in peace, undeveloped preserve across the street and private residences on both sides, no other rentals so you will always have tons of privacy!

Great family vacation
Great time and a great house directly on the beach - perfect for a family vacation! Owners are extremely friendly and helpful. We will definitely come back.
The location could not have been more perfect!
My husband and I, and our two young sons (ages 6 and 8) spent 5 days at Rainbow's End, and let me tell you, it was not nearly long enough! The location could not be more perfect - the beach is even better than it looks in the pictures. The sand is soft, the water is turquoise, the shells were beautiful, and we saw dolphins daily swimming off of our little beach. The house was just the right size for the four of us, and we all loved, and almost exclusively used, the outdoor shower. The vibe of the island is very mellow, which was totally our speed. If you're into shopping, nightlife and consistently dining in 5 star restaurants, this island is not for you. There were a few fun, island-y type eating and drinking spots. Our favorites being Barnacles and the pool bar at Mangoes. Over The Waterfront was also great. We loved that there were no cars on the island, only golf carts, which made it feel especially safe and "away from it all". Mindy (owner) and Duncan (Tortuga Property Mgmt) were both very helpful and great to work with. Would highly recommend this property and we hope to get back there for a longer stay next year!
Relaxing getaway in charming beachfront cottage
We spent a month at Rainbow’s End recently and had a wonderful time. The location of the house - right on the beach - is perfect for dolphin watching. We spent hours in the screened in porch and on the beach directly in front of the house. The house is well decorated and comfortable... one of the best we’ve ever rented! The property management was also excellent, responding quickly to any questions. Highly recommend!
House has everything anyone could want and perfectly situated for dolphin watching and catching beau
Will definitely plan a return trip
Everything was as advertised. Clean, quiet and well maintained property. All service providers (pick up, drop off, grocery delivery, boat rental, restaurants and water taxis) did what they promised with courtesy. Not one thing to complain about.
Can't wait to go back!
Beautiful home. Clean and well stocked with essentials. Leslie the property manager was very helpful.
We were very relaxed and did not want to leave!
