Manager info

Year Purchased: 2009

About: We are a small family from Norway currently living in Melbourne, Australia. I grew up in a ski resort in the Western part of Norway. I have grown very fond of Florida since my first visit in 1988 when I worked as an Attraction Hostess at the Norwegian Pavilion at Epcot Center in Walt Disney World. My husband also has a soft spot for the US, he took his Masters at Thunderbird School of Global Management in Arizona.

Why Captains Bay North:
We love to travel, and my daughter was 6 months when she first visited the States; San Fran and Napa Valley :) At age 3 she conquered Miami beach and we visited the beaches there 2 years in a row. Then we discovered South Fort Myers beach when my American relative bought a condo, and we never looked back. After many visits and wonderful vacations, we took the leap in 2008 and bought this place - in the same building as my relative has hers.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We love to spend time here, and come as often as we can. When looking for our own place, we knew we wanted to be in the area we had grown so fond of, with the fantastic beach across the road, my early morning sunrise walks at the beach, collecting shells and spotting dolphins and birds. Lazy lunches at the Holiday Inn Tiki Bar, the best Pizza in the world at Sandbar, delicious Ice cream at Truly Scrumptious and wonderful food and wine at South Beach Grille - all within minutes walk. I fell in love with the Bamboo floors and the granite countertops in our condo, and the beautiful blue colors on the walls. We love eating breakfast at the Lanai, where we overlook the Mangrove Forest and can only hear the birds and the wildlife, and we forget about time and relax. In the afternoon we sit outside at our front door area - having something cold to drink, a good magazine or book to read - and just soak up the sun and the ambiance. It is so relaxing to be there, and since this is our vacation home, we have made it comfortable and cozy, and like to keep in clean and well kept so our guests can enjoy it as much as we do. We play tennis at the court right next to our building (we provide rackets) and go for a swim in the heated condo pool a minute´s walk away, my daughter´s absolute favorite place to be when she was smaller. Now she just as much enjoys to play and swim in the Gulf, which is warm year round, but perhaps a bit 'refreshing' during the winter months. There are lots of things to do and see in the area, water sports at the beach, but we often just get too lazy, and enjoy spending slow time together as a family. However, we like to shop and the Miromar outlet is a treasure trove we have to visit every time we are there. Another 'must do' each time is at least one visit to the Bay Front Bistro a few minutes up the road. We love doing lunch outside, watching the Back Bay and savoring their excellent food and drink. Hope you will come and visit our paradise and condo!
