              Location

              Car: Not Necessary

              North Captiva Island is an island in Lee County in Southwest Florida, located just offshore in the Gulf of Mexico. It lies just north of Captiva Island, separated by a channel called Redfish Pass which was created in a 1921 hurricane. It lies just south of Cayo Costa Island, separated by Captiva Pass.

              Like Captiva and Sanibel Islands, North Captiva is a barrier island to Pine Island (to the east of Captiva and north of Sanibel), and is very narrow. There is no automobile access to the island and electric golf carts are the primary means of transport.

              Development of the island began in the 1960s, but was slow due to the absence of electric service and the difficulty on transporting building materials to the island. Commercial electric and phone service was established in the mid 1980s. The island now has about 300 homes built and 300 vacant lots, or about halfway to build out. About half of the island is owned by the State of Florida and is part of a State Park. All other areas are privately owned including the roads. Since the island can be accessed by boat or small plane only, a regular passenger ferry service runs from Pine Island Marina (the 'Island Girl' charter service) at two hour intervals - serving both tourists and locals who own neither boats or airplanes. There is also a barging service that transports materials to and garbage from the island.

              The island was damaged in August 2004 when the eastern eyewall of Hurricane Charley struck North Captiva, immediately before hitting Charlotte Harbor to the north-northeast. The island was literally cut in two by the storm surge. Although it took several years, the island has mostly recovered from the hurricane damage and new construction is ongoing.

              Getting Here:

              North Captiva Island is about six miles from the mainland connection on Pine Island . The trip from Southwest Regional Airport in Fort Myers takes about an hour. Taxi service is available at a fare generally less expensive than a rental car. We recommend Pine Island Taxi. (239) 283-7777 You then take a water taxi from Pine Island - Island Girl Charters (239) 633-8142 - and after a scenic journey through the waters of Pine Island Sound where dolphins may be sighted and pelicans are in abundance you will arrive at home in North Captiva.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1994

              About the owner: I grew up on the shores of Nassau Point in Eastern Long Island, and from a very young age developed a love for the sea. When I first came to North Captiva Island in 1984 and I fell in love with the natural beauty, the bird life, sea life, and amazing hiking and fishing adventures. In 1985, I returned and bought a beach front lot that had amazingly similar qualities to our childhood beach-front home on Long Island. My wife and I spent approximately 5 years developing the house plans, along with the requirements and procedures for the home and dock. The house, palm grove, and dock were completed in 1995, and we named the house Seawatch because of the beautiful views of the beach and bay, along with the marine life (i.e. Porpoises) that attracted numerous species of bird to the schools of fish. This was to be our retirement home, but circumstances have created opportunities for guests to share in this wonderful experience.

              Why the Owner Chose North Captiva Island:
              Due to its natural beauty: Dolphins, huge variety of fish, numerous species of sea bird, white sand beaches, protected shoreline, and superb views.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Seawatch is a brand new beach front home rebuilt in July 2007. It has the only available deep water dock, included with the rental, as well as full access to the Safety Harbor Club. This membership gives renters access to a heated community pool, 3 restaurants, tennis courts, clubhouse including big screen tv, lending library, games and miles of beach. Seawatch amenities include 2 central heating and air conditioners, a gourmet kitchen with service for 10, 2 televisions, CD players, wireless internet, high chair, playpen, numerous chairs for lounging on the decks and porches, beach towels, beach chairs, finely crafted leather furniture in living room, all new linens, towels, sheets, beds [very comfortable], and a lending library through the Safety Harbor Club. The home is on a wide private white powder sand beach,with a deep water fishing and boating dock. It has 6 porches for excellent views. The house is also very close to the wildlife sanctuary for hiking, shelling, or photography. Included in the rental are 2 kayaks, and a golf cart.
