Florida House Rental Photos and Description

Beach House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8-12)

Come stay on a tropical island in a truly tropical-style luxury home. The adventure begins with a 20-minute boat ride from the mainland transporting you to a unique vacation experience; "island time." Once on the island, the pace of life slows allowing time for the finer things of life. The Coral Reef is the perfect house to experience this relaxed pace and rejuvenate the mind and spirit.

Our home was designed and built with island living in mind. The Coral Reef is ideal for extended families or a 2-family group. We have 2 master-bedroom suites, and private bathrooms for each of the four bedrooms! The generous verandas, decks, and patio extend the living space seamlessly to the tropical garden, North Captiva. Sunrises and sunsets as viewed from the decks and verandas are the perfect punctuation to a day 'on island.'

This home is complete with all the luxuries and more that one would expect of a first-class vacation home. We supply a computer with wireless high speed internet access; you may prefer to bring your own computer. There is unlimited long distance wired phone service for use by our guests. XBox 360 for the gamers in the group. We are constantly upgrading our amenities. Come stay in our island villa with friends and family, and I promise you will feel at home during your stay and rejuvenated when you leave.

About Mark Ladner

This island home was built in 2005. It has been a pleasure to share it with guests over the years. We love North Captiva, and it is great to have others come out and enjoy the island also. We live in Springfield; and one day, when we retire we hope to be able to spend more time on Island. 'Till then, it is our pleasure to share the experience of North Captiva with all our guests. So, come and enjoy our island. Always a pleasure to host your stay!

Mark Ladner purchased this house in 2012

Why Mark Ladner chose Florida

The Coral Reef, professionally decorated and fully furnished, is a one-of-a-kind home designed for island living and ready to be your home away from home. North Captiva is a unique respite in this world of hustle - no cars, no street lights, 3.5 miles of natural beach all on a little tropical island, North Captiva! We fell in love with it, and we know you will too!

What makes this house unique

The most unique benefit of staying at the Coral Reef is rest and relaxation mixed with just the right amount of discovery and socializing - away from it all, but still able to enjoy several unique quality restaurants and more sea shells and sand dollars than you will ever be able to bring home. With no street lights you can enjoy watching the stars and moon travel across the darkened sky. Staying on North Captiva is just an amazing experience we call it 'Island Time.'

Great location and perfect home for large family or two families!

  • 4 of 5

The Coral Reef house has all you need for a vacation! You bring the bags and sunscreen and have the grocery store pack your food. The home has great outdoor space for reading, lounging and grilling. The location is ideal and makes walking to the beach easy when your older kids have the golf cart. The kitchen and baths are well equipped and ready for you. We also liked the set up of laundry closet right at your door for swim wear and towels after we shook them out. We would rent again! Thanks to the Ladners for a great set up.

A very Nice house

  • 4 of 5

The house is in a great area of the island with nice views, close to the beach and well maintained. I understand why there is not picture of a pool on the site. It is a dipping pool not big at all. If you are looking for a pool to play a game with your children this would not be it. However I would not pass up on the house because of it. Eating on the porch off the kitchen is great suggestion would be to screen it in. The bugs were on the hunt this year.

The golf carts need some serious updating, the first one we had was very slow and the back seat was falling off. The second one the headlight did not work.

We enjoyed our week, love the island and would rent again but we would make sure we inquired about the carts working better or newer ones next time.

Island paradise

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Coral Reef for a week in October. We went with our children and grandchildren and had a wonderful time. The house was beautiful and the kitchen had everything we needed. There was a beautiful outdoor kitchenette near the pool. The pool was the perfect size for young grandchildren and they enjoyed using it. It was nice to be able to walk to the beach or take the golf cart. We were also close to the nature preserve with a trail to the beach at the end of the island. The beach there was very beautiful as was the one at the end of the road. It was nice to be able to use the hot tub and pool at the club as well as borrow their kayaks. My family also enjoyed using the tennis courts at the club. They even had bikes that could be used. If you're looking for a place with lots of touristy things to do this may not be the place for you..... But if you want a place to enjoy the natural beauty of Florida and relax look no further. We would highly recommend the Coral Reef. Thank you for sharing your vacation home with us!

Relaxing, secluded best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

The home was beautiful with all the amenities needed. It is great to be able to have access to a large home for a large group. We all loved the private pool with the outside living area. Simply amazing. North Captiva is breathtaking and the people that work on the island are very helpful and friendly.

Only suggestion is to have a flashlight on hand just in case the power would go out as we did experience during a small storm that came through while we were there. Wonderful all around experience! We will be back!

Perfect, relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week with 6 adults and 2 young children. Home was comfortable with easy beach access. We were looking for quiet and relaxing and we found it. Once you meet the challenge of getting to No Captiva, you never want to leave. We were fortunate to have a glorious week of weather and hope we can do it again. A vacation I will never forget!

Relaxing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at the Coral Reef for two weeks. The house was quite comfortable and the island is very quiet and relaxing. I wish I would have discovered North Captiva while I was still working as it would have been a great place to decompress. We took advantage of the gas grill most nights and during the day took advantage of the beautiful beach which is a short walk from the house. As a bonus, the house has the Big Ten network which allowed me to follow my favorite team.
