Views to the Beach and Cayo Costa from this fabulous 4 bedroom and 3 bath home. Walk down the sandy path to the beach right in front of this stately home. Let the crystal waters of the Gulf soothe and refresh you.
Come get carried away by White Pelican Watch... The rhythm of the waves can surround you as you gaze out onto the Gulf of Mexico from the sun decks, the screen porches, or while you relax in the screen porches. Designed with ample room for two families this brand new home affords you panoramic Gulf views and views to Cayo Costa island. With its private North End location, the serene environment cannot be compared.
This was our third vacation in North Captiva in as many years. We have already begun planning next year's trip, as we sadly depart our little piece of paradise tanned and rested!
White Pelican Watch is a beautiful house. 5 stars for the beach front location and the view. 2 stars for the accommodations.
As one of the older homes on the island, it is in desperate need of a complete makeover/remodel. All three of the bathrooms are below standard (broken tiles, rusted tub, cracked mirrors, lacked towel hooks, and bath room rugs). The furnishings are out-dated and need replacing -especially the living room furniture, which was soiled and shabby. Only oneTV worked properly. The therma foil on the kitchen cabinets was peeling and the granite was completely cracked near the sink. The tiny washing machine broke during the first load of laundry, flooding most of the ground floor.
The owners should consider petitioning their homeowners association to implement a few repairs on road parallel to the north side of the runway. A few yards of well-placed sand would go a long way. We noticed quite a few stranded golf carts after each afternoon storm.
The NCIC crew continues to improve their game :-). Staff members were polite, helpful and professional. Their well-coordinated efforts made the check-in/check-out process a breeze. Home-related issues were immediately resolved, and Sandie's grocery service was a big help.
