Property description

The Sandcastle was recently remodeled and renovated, featuring brand new furniture, new linens, new appliances, new everything - all ready for your family!

The Sandcastle is located on some of the most prized beachfront property on the entire island, featuring some of the BEST FISHING, SHELLING, AND SUNSET-WATCHING in southwest Florida. Step outside your door and walk ten feet of white sandy beach to the water. This location is so private that you may go an entire day without seeing anyone else on your beach. Enjoy the pristine waters and exceptional fishing, all to yourself!

The house was designed to take full advantage of the beautiful beachfront location. A huge sundeck expands the length of the home, and is ideal for enjoying your morning coffee while watching schools of breaching porpoise, meandering manatees, and diving birds. The beautiful custom kitchen features an open design and is fully equipped, including plenty of dishes and equipment to make and enjoy homemade dinners. The living room features a pull-out queen sofa bed, and a huge flat screen TV with satellite and DVD player. The master bedroom features an unbelievably comfortable king-size bed, full bathroom, flat screen TV, and dresser. The second bedroom has two twin beds, perfect for the kids, with a flat screen TV and dresser. There are two full bathrooms with all-new fixtures and linens. The decor is playful, modern and cozy, perfect to make you feel at home during your beach vacation. A highchair, tennis rackets, board games, and other essentials are included in your home. If you need something we don't have, a simple call to the property manager will fix that!

Beautiful North Captiva Island (also called Upper Captiva), is one of Florida's best-kept vacation secrets! The island remains COMPLETELY NATURAL, without paved roads, cars, or crowds of tourists. Our island's sandy roads are traveled by bicycle and golf cart, and North Captiva can only be reached by boat or private aircraft. Our property manager will help you arrange transportation (including a water taxis from the mainland), groceries, and how to fully enjoy the island. There are three excellent restaurants and a gift boutique on island. Jet skis and watercraft are available for rent, and fishing expeditions can be arranged for full or half day adventures! The secluded island is not for everyone- only for those who desire a natural getaway with plenty of activities and time to relax. Almost half of the island is dedicated to a state nature preserve. Nearly four miles of white sand beaches await you, without the hustle and bustle of many other vacation destinations. We hold a deep respect for natural beauty and wildlife of the island - this is truly one of the few places on the planet where the delicate balance between man and nature has withstood the test of time. We would love to share this unique place with you.

The Sandcastle has some of the undisputed best fishing and sunset views on the entire island, as well as amazing wildlife viewing for porpoise, manatee, and loggerhead turtles. Enjoy over three miles of unspoiled white-sand beaches without throngs of tourists!


Manager info

Year Purchased: 1980

About: Our family has owned homes on North Captiva Island since the 1970s, when only a few families were on the island. Four generations of our family have grown up in this tropical paradise (Jack and Noah, pictured, are the fourth generation to fall in love with this island!). We feel very spoiled to have enjoyed this pristine island without throngs of tourists or cars, and we are happy to share it with new visitors!

Why North Captiva Island:
The Sandcastle has been in our family for decades, and was recently rebuilt after Hurricane Charley destroyed the original home in 2007. The home is located on some of the most prized property on the entire island - a wide beach, romantic sunset views, and very productive fishing are right outside the front door!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The best benefit of the Sandcastle is its privacy - you may go an entire day on the beach without seeing another person! This island is for those who can enjoy true relaxation - fishing, shelling, wildlife viewing (including porpoise, manatees, loggerhead turtles, and seabirds), bicycling, sunning, and exploring the island's wildlife preserve.
