Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 7

This lovely beachfront home has a private beach and two large open porches overlooking the water. Watch the dolphin go by and see the tarpon jumping in the sun. If you like to fish, this beach is the premier spot on the island near Captiva Pass. Head down to the North Captiva Island Club, included with your stay, and enjoy one of the two pools, the clay tennis courts, the pool bar and grill, or a complimentary kayak or bike ride. This is the island to come to for relaxation, and this is the house to do it in. Dolphin cottage is just steps to the water, and the views are simply stunning.

This old-style Florida home has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a queen-size pull-out sofa bed in the living room. The master bedroom has a king-size bed with a private bath, and the second bedroom has two twin beds with the hall bath immediately adjacent. Large-screen high def televisions with satellite and complimentary wireless internet, fully equipped kitchen, gas grill outside, and of course, the porch swing to take it all in!

This vacation rental home is located on North Captiva Island. Remote and undiscovered, North Captiva Island is accessible only by ferry, private boat or small plane. This private island community is reminiscent of old Florida as it once was during a simpler time. Just 3 miles off shore, this tropical paradise is part of the Lee Island Coast barrier island chain in South West Florida. Nearest airport to fly to would be in Fort Myers, Fl. Travel by golf cart or bicycle on our sandy native trails. Here, you will find no cars, no crowds or paved roads. North Captiva Island offers a small town impression with just enough amenities to suite your family needs. Guest would have access to our club pools, hot tub, bikes, kayaks, tennis court, half basketball court, and beach chairs. We welcome you to join us for a truly memorable experience of a self-effacing refuge, where a slower pace is expectant. All are fully equipped with our resort package for your convenience and setup for comfort with all the luxuries of your own home to be found right here, in paradise!

Great house

  • 4 of 5

House was great, very clean and comfortable. The beach is very close to the home, just right out the back. Very pretty views from almost everywhere in the house. One thing that we didn't realize is the Master bedroom is up a spiral staircase and has no door. Not a huge deal for us - but definitely makes it less private. We had everything we needed in the house, aside from maybe a cookie sheet and a working pair of scissors - the pair provided were broken, and not having a garbage disposal was sort of a pain. It was nice to have the beach so close for walks and shell searching - but we preferred swimming on the other side of the island, as the sand was better and water was clearer. The roads on this part of the island were really torn up - HUGE mud holes you have to drive through to get anywhere w/no way to avoid them. The roads on other side of island, near the North Captiva Island Club (NCIC) were much better. BUT luckily - the golf cart provided with the house is lifted w/good tires - so we had no issues - other than a little more mud splatter than we would have liked! I will also say that the service from NCIC was just "okay". We arrived later than anticipated (late flights). When we arrived on the island (in the dark) it took 20 minutes for them to find our house key and golf cart, and we were given NO welcome information or details about the island or any details. The next day we had an issue with the water heater - I stopped in the office around lunch and asked for them to come look at it. By the evening we hadn't heard from anyone.....we called again after hours and apparently our service call was never turned in. It ended up being a flipped breaker - so we "fixed" it ourselves - but nonetheless - room for improvement.
