About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms , 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

You may be at a remote island but you will not be remote in this well equipped island home. Enjoy beautiful sunsets and gulf breezes from the many covered porches right from the home or drive your golf cart to the beach of this 4 bedroom, 3 full and 2 half bathrooms on a remote tropical island. The home has an observation deck that gives a panoramic view of the Gulf and Bay. The two master suites are identical and make it easier for two families to share the home. It is comfortable in all respects with French doors leading to the private porch on the top floor and the second master has an adjacent door to it’s private porch.

All bedrooms have private access to porches with sitting areas to read and relax. California King beds in the masters with oversize rooms and showers that are extra large make these suites havens for relaxation. The large kitchen, (new stainless appliances January 2016) with reachable serving area or eating area for six has all the needed kitchen supplies, including a margarita maker, Panini maker, mixers, china, silverware and cookware if you decide to have gourmet meals. The dining room table seats eight to make those memorable family events.

The great room has a 42” plasma TV hidden in a beautiful cherry entertainment center. A sony surround sound can handle the sports events and the music. High speed internet serves the whole house.

The large heated pool has areas for getting your tan or relaxing under an umbrella at the table for six. An outdoor shower and ½ bath nearby can give you a quick transition from the beach to the pool. Playing games is a great family event whether you use the bags game (cornhole), horse shoes or make your own island scavenger hunt.

Weber gas three burner grill located on the deck the pool makes it easy to prepare your grilling delights. Inside stairway is convenient and in the air conditioning.

About Charlie Brazik

We own two homes on the island Moondance and Stardance along with some friends. We are on the island as much as possible.

Charlie Brazik purchased this house in 2006

Why Charlie Brazik chose Florida

We love the quiet, fishing, kayaking and generally relaxing on the island. We live in Gulf Harbour on the mainland when we are not on the island

What makes this house unique

We stay in both homes so we make sure that they are ready for you and us. Moondance has big porches with beautiful views of the Pine Island Sound. Moondance is larger and great for when our families come to the island.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Subject: Moondance We had a wonderful time at your home. The house had everything we needed and more. It was very clean and we loved having the elevator. This was a vacation with my grandparents, parents, sister,and nephew and of course our two boys we made a lot of special memories it was a once in a lifetime opportunity and I could not have asked for more. My husband and I look forward to our future trips to the island. Thanks for being great hosts!!!

Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had the most perfect family vacation on North Captiva Island, and Moondance met our every need. There were 10 of us in the house - three families in all - my husband and I, plus two of our adult children and their families. Moondance gave each family plenty of room and privacy, plus the multiple decks were a huge plus, as was the private pool. The kitchen was large and well equipped. Chuck was very helpful in acquainting us with the house and with the island and the activities offered by the Safety Harbor Club. He was very responsive to any needs that came up. The beaches were beautiful and the weather couldn't have been better. We look forward to returning one day and would definitely pick Moondance again for our large family.

Best place on North Captiva

  • 5 of 5

Our family (3 generations) have been spending spring break on the island for the last 8 years. Each year we rent a different house, always searching for the best one for us. We found it this year! The owners were very responsive and did everything to make our vacation great. The house is amazing! Two master bedroom suites, lots of decks, a fantastic kitchen with plenty of cooking utensils fit for a large group. We would rent again, without hesitation.

Amazing Winter Break

  • 5 of 5

This home and the location on Upper Captiva were both amazing - - and the vacation was perfect for our family, including our children who celebrated so many firsts! From finding whole sand dollars on the beach to seeing their first live starfish, from fishing off the beach or via a charter boat to swimming in the heated pool at the house - - seeing them make new memories was fantastic! The house was well equipped for our stay, we didn't want for anything - - even the beds were comfy and the bath towels fluffy! We are already looking forward to our next trip!

Unforgettable Trip!!

  • 5 of 5

This home provided EVEYTHING a family of 8 adults could ask for! Ages from 23 to 55 and we had plenty of room to meet the needs of everyone. We all enjoyed lots of quality time at the pristine pool of our own after a fun day of boating, fishing, shelling and cruising the island in the two golf carts that were provided. The home was extremely clean and comfortable with lots of space for everyone. Numerous decks provided plenty of quiet places to relax with a book or a delicious glass of wine as the sun set each night. The kitchen had everything we could possibly need to prepare all our meals. After touring the island at the many other home selections that we reviewed, it became clear we had select the perfect home. Centrally located to the ocean, the club and boat launch. (we highly recommend using Boats and Fun if you plan to rent a boat). The living space was very spacious and met all of our needs. The kitchen was well supplied and met our every need. (we did bring our own waffle maker). The elevator was not working the entire stay which was disappointing after lugging up all our stuff three flights of stairs. Great views from the crows nest. You could see both the ocean side as well as the bay side from this vantage point. We had stayed on North Captiva several years ago and this selection was by far more superior. We would most definitely book this home again when we return to North Captiva.

Owner's Response: We thank you for the review and glad that your family had a great trip. This is the first time in 10 years that the elevator went down but we were glad that it didn't inconvenience you too much.
