About the property

Immaculate with Private Pool, Hot Tub - Breathtaking! Early Poolside check in

Beach Therapy melts away your problems as your private oasis with a Private Pool and secluded Hot Tub.

Enjoy Gulf to Bay views from our Roof Deck. This is a spectacular location to enjoy sunrise and sunset. Beach Therapy was renovated in 2013 to include many of the comforts which will help to melt away your stress, and leave the real world behind.

Arriving at Beach Therapy is just a short golf cart drive from the North Captiva Dock. Once you pull into this lovely beach home you’ll be greeted by newly planted palms for added privacy. Our Palm Garden is a wonderful place for lazy afternoon. You can relax in the hammocks or enjoy the private heated pool which has plenty of pool loungers and conversation sets. The Hot Tub was placed under the house for added privacy and romantic evenings. The grilling area includes both gas and charcoal grills. In addition we have a picnic table at the ground level which is a great place for a family barbeque.

Our home has a reverse floor plan with the bedrooms on the second level. As you walk up our stairs you’ll find an intimate screened front porch which is a great place for friends to drop by or to enjoy an evening night cap. The master bedroom has a king size bed, new modern floors, and a new 37” Flat Panel TV for relaxing after a long day at the beach. The Master Bathroom features, Double Sinks, and a 2 person stand up shower. Bedrooms Two and Three feature a Queen bed, and Two Twin beds respectively, and share a bathroom. They are freshly decorated, and a nice relaxing way to end your exciting days.

Continue up to the third level, and you are greeted with huge cathedral ceilings which open up to the main living area. Beach Therapy features an open layout which allows for easy flow for the whole family. The kitchen, living, and dining all flow on to one large floor plan, as the living room porch (lanai) opens up with wall to wall sliding glass doors. Our guests typically enjoy having meals or family time on the screened lanai, while opened up for everyone to enjoy. Our living area has a 60” Flat Panel TV, (Dish Networks TV with Premium Channels) a New Sound System, and Outdoor lanai speakers. Plug your IPod, or any smart phone into the audio jack and relax with your tunes.

Peeking through the lanai screened door, you’ll notice some spiral staircases which lead to the best kept secret in the house. Our 4th floor Roof Top deck! Enjoy the amazing North Captiva sunrise or sunsets; relax in the evenings above the tree line, stargaze and count the shooting stars. Or just enjoy the view of the island at any time. We’ve also added loungers and a conversation set so that your family & guests can relax and enjoy what North Captiva is all about.Beach Therapy is a short golf cart ride away from our private beach access 'Captiva Castaway'

Beach Therapy – Because going to the beach is cheaper than going to a therapist.

About Sarah Rapp

We are a Native Miami Family, which fell in love with North Captiva after vacationing at the island ourselves a few years back.

We love the quiet and tranquility, that North Captiva Island offers us. As well as the secluded privacy given by our Home. We enjoy having our property in tip top shape which leaves everyone feeling as if they are in a 5 star resort and home!!

Sarah Rapp purchased this house in 2013

Why Sarah Rapp chose Florida

We vacationed at this property ourselves for a few years, and decided it felt like home. When we purchased this property it was in dire need of renovations. And in 2013 after quite a long few months of renovations we brought the home up to our luxurious, and private standards. We decided to name it Beach Therapy as we live very busy, hectic lives, and our home is our sanctuary to de-stress and relax. My Wife calls it a total disconnect which 'rejuvenates' you as soon as you get on the ferry!

What makes this house unique

Beach Therapy is totally renovated, and deep cleaned after every visit. We spare no expense in keeping our home in amazing shape. We encourage people to come and de-stress, the home is uniquely private in that the pool and hot tub make you feel totally secluded. The TV's are new as is the SONOS sound system. All the bedding is new, living room furniture new, patio furniture new, bedroom floors new, stair carpeting new, and the house is freshly painted. We encourage our visitors to visit Beach Therapy and get away from it all!!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Here right now. House has everything you want or need and nothing you don't! Very well appointed with hot tub and pool. Good technology - wifi, Sonos, great tv. Close to club. First time to North Captiva, here over New Year's, but still not crowded. Bring what you need food wise, limited options once on island. Have eaten at two small, casual restaurants Barnacles and the pool bar. Both are fine. Pool bar within walking distance, Barnacles is a short cart ride, fun place.

Beach Therapy

From the initial booking of the reservation with Sarah of to our arrival and greeting by Laurie and Duncan of Tortuga Properties, our stay was 100% relaxation and rejuvenation. A great family vacation.

It was a huge help to have Laurie and Duncan on the island to help with any questions that came up.

The house had everything we needed. It is spacious and very comfortable. Beautiful pool, hot tub and view from the roof deck!

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our first time to North Captiva Island was an unforgettable experience. The island is beautiful. The beaches, the sunsets and the wildlife are all part of the charm (not to mention no cars to contend with). We have 3 kids and they loved it. They loved riding on the golf cart, exploring the beaches, searching for turtles and of course seeing dolphins and manatees. Beach Therapy is a lovely home. It was clean upon arrival and had everything we needed and then some...

We loved the screened in porch and the pool. The house is beautifully decorated and very comfortable with plenty of space for all. The 4th floor deck has gorgeous views of the island but it was a little on the chilly side at night so we didn't get up there as much as I thought we would. We wouldn't hesitate to stay at beach therapy again. I hope that some day we will make it back to North Captiva. We absolutely loved everything about the house and the island.

Can't say enough wonderful things about this house and the location. It was the best vacation we've ever had. The house is immaculate, and has every luxury one would need. It was super clean, and extremely well maintained. The bed in the master was super comfy with the softest sheets and blankets ever. The landscaping was my favorite part of the house, and the crows nest! The pool was warm and clean. It was all perfect, really. It was our own slice of paradise for a few days. And Laurie and Duncan, as well as Sarah were amazing- really great people. We will be returning, hopefully very soon.

Had a fantastic stay

  • 4 of 5

The stay was great! We had a wonderful time and for the first time vacationing in Florida it was everything we wanted. Would definitely recommend.

The place was very clean and had a very welcoming atmosphere. We loved the fact that we were also members of the North Captiva Island Assoc which allowed us access to the community pools and hot tubs. Great plus!

Hope to return soon.

Great Vacation home

  • 5 of 5

The house was great for a beach getaway with family and friends. Property managers and staff were very helpful. They were responsive to every request we could possibly have. Whatever we asked for was done or delivered immediately. The house is beautiful, three stores if you include the roof deck. Everything was up to date and clean. It reminded me of a house on HGTV international. The porch and roof deck were our favorite spots to hang out. The view is incredible for watching the sunset. It rained for most of our stay but there were plenty of games, puzzles, and things to watch on TV. We spent a lot of time in the pool which was more like a hot tub, it was 97 degrees! Pool was very clean. They also have a hot tub but with the temperature of the pool and a group of five people we spent most of the time in the pool. Golf cart and bikes are available for free through the club which made getting around the island very easy and care free. The free bikes through the club membership need a little TLC and were not always functional, but we were able to rent bikes through bikes and boards at a reasonable rate. We had issues getting to the house on our planned date of arrival due to flight delays. They were very accommodating and let us stay later on our departure date to make up for this. We enjoyed North Captiva because it was isolated, only reachable by ferry. There are no cars on the island. There were a few people on the island during our stay but it was not crowded by any means. We were able to get every reservation we wanted without much hassle. There are only a few restaurants on the island. I would recommend on the waterfront and boat house. The food was very good. Barnacles I would only recommend for ice cream, the restaurant is a little dirty. We ordered food in advance from publix on the mainland. Food was good quality but a little on the pricey side. There are no grocery stores on the island so everything must be purchased in advance before traveling to the island. My only suggestion (which is minor) is possibly having a better inventory of what food/spices are already in the house prior to our arrival so groceries can be purchased accordingly.

I would highly recommend staying at this house to anyone planning to travel to North Captiva. We plan to visit again in the future.
