North Captiva Island house description
Driving up to The Silver Seashell, you will be impressed with the lovely landscaped grounds and the architectural flare. Tucked away are the 28-foot private pool and spa, surrounded by beautiful composite decking – no nails, no screws, no slivers.
Enter the front door to find The Silver Seashell professionally designed in the charm of a seaside cottage. From the oak staircase, with its spindled 3-story atrium up to the Widow's Walk, to the seashell prints hung tastefully, you will be drawn into the inviting atmosphere of this home by the sea.
Three bedrooms are located on this first level. The master bedroom and one other bedroom have outside decks to enjoy morning coffee or just quiet time. Each bedroom has its own private bathroom, Samsung HDTV with HD satellite and DVD player. Designer coordinated bedding adds to the seaside feeling.
On the second level is the open, light-filled great room with cathedral ceiling and French doors. The kitchen with its solid surface counters is equipped to satisfy the tastes of the most discriminating cook. A breakfast bar is adjacent to the kitchen. The dining area with its 12-foot bay window provides an inviting atmosphere for casual or formal dining. The family room provides a comfortable entertainment area with a Sharp Aquos 1080P HDTV with HD satellite, Bose 321GS DVD home theater, VCR, and a Bose SoundDock so you can bring your iPod and enjoy your own music while relaxing in new, beautiful leather sofas and chair. An extensive library of movies for both adults and children is available as well as books and board games for everyone’s enjoyment. The adjacent screened lanai is a perfect place to watch the sunset, read a book, or to enjoy quiet games of cards while enjoying the wicker sofa and chairs and glass-top tables. A fourth full bathroom is also on this level.
The third level Widow’s Walk offers the perfect place to get away. This quiet hideaway is equipped with a twin-sized day bed, a Polycom speaker phone, a desk/chair with a Dell laptop with high-speed wireless Internet (you can also access the secure high-speed wireless with your own device anywhere in the house or outside) and a HP printer/fax/scanner/copier in case you need to do some work while on vacation. It provides inside access (no spiral staircase) to the observation deck with some of the best views of the Gulf and Bay, and a place to enjoy the serenity and beauty of island living.

Wonderful vacation on scenic islandGuest comment entered by owner
Wonderful vacation on scenic island
We recently traveled to North Captiva Island and stayed in a rental home - Silver Sea Shell. The home was very nice. The owners seemed to think of everything a visitor could need - nicely decorated and very comfortable and close to the beach with views of the Gulf. This was our first trip to he island and the travel plans can be a little intimidating but everything went just fine. I really think this had alot to do with Sarah Rapp who booked the vacation home for us. I can't say enough about how helpful she was and always available for questions. She was amazing! We arrived during tropical storm Debbie so our weather was bad until Tuesday. The pool area is very private with a large covered area adjacent to the pool. There is an oversized table and chairs there which was very nice and allowed to us to spend time outside when the weather was not the best. You absolutely must bring your own groceries - we preordered from Publix - and other than a few minor mistakes it went very well. One complaint we had was that although Ncic did transport our luggage and groceries to the house but they left them outside in the pouring rain !!! The bagged groceries were in plastic bins but the cases of soda, beer etc were not covered and simply fell apart when we tried to carry them into the house. Felt they could have covered our things - including the luggage - with something until we were able to carry it in. We had dinner at the Boat House and it was excellent. Alicia - our chef and Hilary - our hostess were wonderful. Do not miss having the experience of dining there - we loved it !! The golf cart was lots of fun and a great way to get around the island. North Captiva Island is simply beautiful. We were looking for a relaxing vacation with nothing to do but enjoy our surroundings and spend time together without all the hustle bustle of everyday life. It was exactly what we wanted. A very memorable vacation !!

My family and I stayed at this property the summer of 2010 and had such a great time. We came to celebrate two college graduations so our ages ranged from 20s-50s. The whole island was pretty much empty besides a wedding party- we still didn't see or hear much of them. Loved the property- it fit all 8 of us perfectly. We made great use of the kitchen/dining area- fully set up with all the place settings and cooking tools you need! The island itself was great, so much to offer! We went jet skiing, used the golf carts, and had an amazing dinner at the restaurant all to ourselves. We felt like the island was ours! The staff was very accommodating and friendly- everything was great! We've had many family trips over the years and this is definitely the one we still talk about- and will be talking about for years to come!

This was one of our best vacations. We stayed at this house August 2010 and loved it. It was very clean and well mantained. We saw sea turtles, manatee's & dolphin's. Every morning we had breakfast in the screened in porch, and every night we were on the roof top gazing at stars and sunsets "what a view". Owner keeps this house immaculate and is on top of everything. Short walk to beach. Abundance amount of dvd/movies. Pictures and description are very accurate. Everything was wonderful and we cant wait to go back.
