Solitude is a unique North Captiva experience, in both location and layout. The perfect fit for large & multiple families alike; and quite simply a fisherman’s delight.
This home is nestled in one of the very few canals on the island, tucked away in Safety Harbor; with enough dockage for 3 fishing boats. Beach access is endless, and exploration of all the beaches the island has to offer is highly recommended. The owner's golf cart, as well as additional carts via the North Captiva Island Club, are optional and at your disposal. Solitude is a 4 BR, 4 BA home, with 2 living rooms, multiple screened and open porches, a fully stocked game room for the kids,and a swimming pool with small spill pool The home has been completely renovated and the decor and amenities are first class. Plenty of room for multiple or extended families, with 3,500 sqft under air, and 5,500 sqft of total living space. From the 3rd-level main living area, the views are unparalleled.

The home has been recently updated with the latest wireless technology allowing for Wi-Fi access throughout the entire property, along with TVs in the 2 main living rooms that provide over 1600 channels.
One of the very best features of this amazing property is the private boat access and great dockside location. Dock your boats right at the house.

Great Family Vacation
We were blown away by the cleanliness, size and views from this magnificent home. We also brought our boat and the home had a great dock with a fish cleaning station outback to keep the boat. We really enjoyed the pool and spa behind the house during the hot days. We enjoyed exploring the island by foot and golf cart. If you are looking for a memorable vacation for your family this place is a slam dunk!

North Captiva Island Club Resort
Loved the island! Some dissapointments with the property.
Two families met in North Captiva for a vacation. The island was absolutely fabulous! The people at North Captiva Island Club could not have been nicer and more helpful. We so enjoyed the kayaks and bikes. The main pool was great for the kids. We rented a boat from Boats R Fun. Again, they could not have been nicer and more helpful. With the boat, we were able to explore the inter-coastal waterway. We saw stingray, dolphins, manatees, star fish and alligators. The beach on North Captiva was gorgeous and shelling was so much fun.
The one disappointment was with the house. The upstairs TV did not work and the down stairs TV had a picture but very little volume. The pool heater was broken. Some of the furniture was broken or in rough shape. We brought the TV and pool issues to the attention of North Captiva Island Club. They finally came out the last day of our vacation to look at the TVs and the man could not fix them and left. Nobody came to look at the pool. Once home, we emailed the owner of the house regarding our troubles but we have not received a response. We did enjoy the kitchen, outdoor decks and game room in the house.
I would definitely recommend going to North Captiva Island for a vacation but I would look at a different property. I know we will definitely be back ourselves. It was paradise!
Thank you for taking the time to write your review for Solitude. We are working on getting these issues addressed. We are so happy hear your family had a great time and we hope to see you again soon!
Needs total updating
Refrigerator ice maker broken, pool cold, septic system running out on ground, dirty underwear under sink in one of bathrooms smoke alarm needed batteries, pots and pans need replaced,house needs a good cleaning as once the sheet were removed in master suite stains on mattress and mattress pads. Did not receive beach chairs until last day. Game room not accessible from main house, need to be in listing especially with small children involved as it has keys to get in. The owners need to have a list of how to operate fans, a/c, pool who to call in case of emergency and overall lay of the land of the island. Also need to be advised that you can ship packages over to the island before you arrived. The only good thing is the Island is beautiful. First and last time I would visit unless fully checked out house before renting. This was a family vacation, was disappointed with the rental.
Thank you for taking the time to write your review for Solitude. We are working on getting these issues addressed.
Beautiful home for family memories!
such a convenient location for anyone with a boat! The pool area was wonderful after a fun day on the water with a beautiful downstairs wet bar and extremely efficient and comfortable kitchen and dining area upstairs! Where you can partake in beautiful views of the gulf and surrounding island. Great place to make priceless family memories. We can't wait until next time and will be sure to book this home again
Enjoyed every minute!
My family and I celebrated an important birthday on North Captiva last week at Solitude.
What a wonderful house and the accommodations were outstanding. There was nothing not to love about the house, beautifully decorated, large and comfortable, plenty of room for all of us to be together inside and out. The beds were so comfortable, the rooms were beautiful, as are all of the bathrooms. We all had an outstanding time. Each morning we would walk on the beach, coming back to Solitude having some lunch then jumping in the pool. Had a terrific golf cart adventure .... loving the fact that there were no cars. Having the dock was an additional bonus, we did not use or need the ferry.
I speak for all of us when I say we would highly recommend this home and never hesitate should we have the opportunity to return. Thank you so much Solitude for the opportunity to stay in a very special home.
We truly loved it, and hope to return again next year.
PERFECT VACATION HOUSE
We have been staying on North Captiva, in many different homes, for about 10years. This home was perfect!!
We had a large party that arrived by boat. Having the dock right there, in a safe secure spot, that we were able to leave gear on was a wonderful convience and piece of mind. My kids even caught a huge snook and tarpon off the dock!!
The house itself was huge! Beautifully decorated and had everything we needed. So many different living areas that we never felt cramped. The kids loved the playroom! What a bonus!!
The pool and hot tub were wonderful. It is a peaceful spot on the canal and you truly feel like you have your own little slice of paradise!!
We will definitely be renting this one again!! Great find!! Definitely recommend!!
