The first level of Manatee Haven has four bedrooms, two kings, one queen and two twins, in addition to two full baths. Each of the bedrooms is fully tiled and beautifully appointed with island themes. DirecTV (with free Netflix) is available in the Great room, and in all four bedrooms and a PS3 with 20+ video games is in the special twin bedroom suite that is decorated in a dolphin theme for kids.

                              Car: Not Necessary

                              Manatee Haven is located on a barrier island North Captiva Island. You take a public water-taxi from Pineland Marina on Pine Island, Florida. It takes 25 minutes to get to the island. You use a golf cart to get around the island. There are three restaurants and one snack bar/grocery store. The beach is less than a minute ride by golf cart. The island is very peaceful and quiet as there are no large condo complexes allowed, only single family homes. If you are looking to kick back and relax you have come to the right place.

                               

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2002

                              About the owner: We are a retired couple (Kay and Jake) who live in Leesburg, Virginia who who have 21 years of experience in the managing of a vacation rental home. We enjoy coming down to Manatee Haven during times when it is not being rented to work on maintenance issues and do deep cleaning. Kay did all of the decorating and is very fussy about keeping a clean and functional vacation home for our guests. The rest of the family includes two daughters with sons-in-law and eight grandchildren ranging from the ages of 4 year to 21. We donate $25 to the Save the Manatee Club for every client that visits our home during the year.

                              Why the Owner Chose North Captiva Island:
                              We built Manatee Haven in 2002 and chose North Captiva Island because of its seclusion, privacy and relaxing atmosphere. We previously owned a vacation rental home on Captiva Island from 1993 to 2002 named 'Casa Manatee' in the Sunset Captiva community #26.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              Manatee Haven is unique in that when you enter the home it is completely under a 3-story screen enclosure on a large deck (3,200 sq. ft) with elevator, a 33 ft. long and 15 ft. wide heated swimming pool, hot-tub, enclosed hot & cold water shower, small refrigerator, swimming pool games and toys and plenty of outdoor furniture to relax and enjoy yourself. This enclosure keeps the bugs out and no sunscreen lotion would be necessary.
