About the property

Walk to Beach and Island Club

Spend a week on this idyllic Florida island accessible only by boat or ferry- no cars on the island, only golf carts. Free membership to Island Club Olympic sized pool(s), hot tub, free kayaks and bicycles, tennis courts, fitness center, playground as well as a private deeded access beach all within walking distance from this island home. Upgrades include new bedding in all bedrooms, a 46' flat screen in living room, leather couches, new deck set on the patio, and all new landscaping. A short walk or ride in your golf cart (included with rental) takes you to a private deeded access beach- or to the North Captiva Island Clubhouse facilities. We own the empty lot to our left which gives us a very private and quiet setting. The open floor plan allows the living room and kitchen to flow together – great for cooking and entertaining at the same time! A full wall of glass provides a bright living area and great exposure to the outside. Watch the sunsets over the gulf from the over sized screened porch or relax as the hammock sways you to sleep. The Master and Queen bedrooms each have full private bathrooms and the twin and bunk room share a full hall bath. One additional half bath upstairs.Three bedrooms have TV's and cable access and WiFi is available in the home.. An excellent value in this tropical paradise.

About Margie Klueber

We visited North Captiva Island and were immediately charmed by its unique character. For us it was the perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of the Northeast, Though we weren't quite sure whether our young adult children would be equally charmed, they, too fell in love with this island getaway.

Margie Klueber purchased this house in 2012

Just right

  • 5 of 5

This house is great. We had a good sized group, and lots of kids, and the house was perfect. The location is very convenient to split your days between the WONDERFUL beach, and the relaxed pool scene at the club. Both are 100% walkable in a couple of minutes, or a quick zip on the cart. Outdoor shower, huge screened porch with hammock, well supplied kitchen, stereo, tvs, AC, and lots of space. Just right...

Fantastic! Hidden gem!

  • 5 of 5

I honestly can't say enough about this great property! The house was immaculate. We had plenty of space, and it was furnished with everything we needed. We really enjoyed the updated living areas and especially the screened in porch for meals and relaxing. Margie, the owner was so helpful in every part of the process. She sent us information about the island and ferry before our stay and was more than willing to answer questions via email (very quickly) while we were there. The island is a hidden gem. We really loved the availability of the private beach and the amenities at the pool club. I would highly recommend this property and hope to return myself.

A little slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

My brother and I took my mom to North Captiva to celebrate her 80th birthday, and it was a perfect getaway! Isle Be There is a beautiful home with all the amenities (including heat - it was 47 degrees there our first day, but warmed up nicely by day 2). The house was clean and well-maintained and in a perfect location. We walked to the pool and pool bar, to the beach and to the preserve within just a few minutes. No cars allowed - a huge bonus. Just cute little golf carts. We ate at Mangos (decent), Barnacles (above average) and Over the Waterfront, which was an awesome experience. One person works there - chef, waiter, busboy. Food was fabulous and he was hysterical.

My only comment is that if you are planning to travel there with someone who may be infirmed or not terribly mobile, you need to be aware that all of the homes are raised on stilts and there are quite a few steps to climb. Other than that, it was a beautiful, quiet, rustic island and the home was fantastic.

Well equipped house for a quiet getaway

  • 5 of 5

A great house with a well-equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, and centrally located on the island for access to the "club" (pools, tennis, etc), beach, or state park. Board games aplenty and beach books. A very nice island with ospreys everywhere and no cars (though it is not clear to me why everyone uses golf carts when there are such nice walks. . . )

I highly recommend the house. When little problems arose (a sprung door on arrival, a water system hiccup), the management company addressed them within minutes -- extremely attentive. The owner was very responsive to questions and there were no problems whatsoever.

The internet connect is a little slow, but you are not there for the internet. . .

Isle Be There Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic, relaxing vacation on North Captiva, and Isle Be There was a lovely place for a family get-together. The home description was spot-on, and the property is clean, well-maintained, and just a short walk (or golf cart ride) to the beach. I would definitely reserve the home again, and look forward to my next visit to paradise!
