4 Bedroom, 2.5 Bath Home 400ft From The Beach With Panoramic Water Views.

Runway Chalet is a lovely 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath home with a panoramic water view of Pine Island Sound, the Intercoastal Waterway, Safety Harbor, and the Gulf of Mexico. This home sits up very high and also affords a great view of the island vegetation. The best views are from the top level observation room with exterior decks on three sides that overlook the Gulf and Sound. This room, with a full bed, also doubles as a bedroom.

Runway Chalet was extensively remodeled and professionally decorated in 2005 and has stylish, updated furnishings. One floor below the observation room, you will enjoy a tastefully decorated livingroom with a large screened balcony that extends the living space outdoors to take advantage of the beautiful natural scenery and tropical island atmosphere. The kitchen has all stainless steel appliances with corian countertops and there are lovely tile floors throughout.

The master bedroom with a king bed, large walk in closet, and luxurious master bath are located one floor below the main level. The master bath is equipped with a large garden tub as well as a walk in shower. Two additional bedrooms, one with a queen bed and the other with two twin beds, as well as a second full bath are also located on this level.

Great house on a beautiful island

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 had a lovely time on our first visit to north captiva island. Our son thought staying on the runway was fascinating and we saw many dolphins each time we went to the beach. Getting anywhere on the island is a breeze in the golf cart and the beaches are gorgeous, clean, and secluded. The house itself had everything we needed and was very well laid out with views everywhere. Definitely need to plan grocery shopping beforehand because there is hardly anything at the island market. We got bread and milk and some candy there, but the best side we could find to go with our burgers was Pringles. The kids didn't mind a bit! We planned a couple of dinners at home, ate out the other nights and made lots of sandwiches to take to the beach. I'd recommend more than one loaf of bread for a week, extra snack food and fresh produce. The wildlife, the landscape, and the great house made it all wonderful. Even the Pringles.

Our stay at Runway Chalet was everything we hoped it would be. Beautiful sunrise and sunsets. Choices of beaches and activities were nearby. The house was perfect for our family and everything it was advertised to be.

Amazing Stay at Runway Chalet

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed staying on North Captiva in this beautiful home. The views of the ocean and runway was amazing. The house had everything we needed. Greg, the owner, was very accommodating and helpful. We were able to bring our boat and dock nearby. Overall, we had a wonderful experience and would highly recommend this Chalet to others.

We had a fabulous stay at the Runway Chalet. The location was amazing, the house was awesome. It had everything you could possibly need in it including beach towels! Greg (the owner) was super nice and met us at the boat, helped us unload our stuff and showed us around his beautiful home. Highly recommended! We had a perfect week here!
