North Captiva Island house description
North Captiva Island is a little slice of heaven. Bring your family and friends to unwind, re-connect and just have fun. Our home is your home. Enjoy multiple sun decks, an outdoor shower and Club membership. Our top floor has gorgeous 360 degree views of the Gulf, the bay and the island; the perfect place to watch the sunset... all steps from the endless warm sandy beach. The Club amenities include a huge heated swimming pool, a second pool, jacuzzi and 2 Har-Tru tennis courts.
The house comes with the use of a red golf cart, we call it 'Ruby' . No need the to pack beach towels, there are plenty. The house has 3 levels. The first level has the kitchen, the living room, the dining space, the lanai, a large deck, bathroom and 2 bedrooms (1st: queen bed with on suite bathroom and 2nd: 2 single beds). Level 2 is the master suite including a bathroom and private deck. Level 3, an extra sleeping space, is like a little studio in the sky, 4 walls of windows, a deck, TV, desk and couch. There are two futon mattresses that can be pulled out and used anywhere in the house as extra beds.
We have found a place that magically melts 'mad rush' into 'hammock heaven'. Your most difficult decision of the day will be 'beach or pool'. This is a place where you can swim, hot tub, kayak, play tennis, seek shells, fish, jog on the beach, bird watch, soak up the sun, eat out, bar-b-q in, watch sunsets or...just do nothing.
North Captiva Island is north of Sanibel and Captiva, approximately four miles long and 1/2 mile wide. Dolphins and manatees are frequent visitors to our shores. The 700 acre State Land Preserve is home to many migratory and nesting birds. The island is special because there are no bridges connecting it to the mainland so there are no cars.
From Fort Myers Airport a private shuttle service is available to bring you and your groceries to the marina where you pick up the water taxi. The vacation begins with the water taxi ride across the bay and among the mangroves ( approx. 25 minutes). As you dock you will be greeted by the knowledgeable and resourceful Vicki who will make sure you get settled in.

Fantastic week of relaxing at Island Jewel
Fantastic week of relaxing at Island Jewel
We really enjoyed our week at Island Jewel. We are four adults and two small kids. The house is a pretty key west style and has everything we needed for a week of relaxing and enjoying some beach time. A big plus was the location, it was a short walk to the club which had pools, tennis, kayaks and more. The prettiest beach on the island was 2 minute stroll down the path/road through the palms and felt like you had it all to yourself. The kids loved "Ruby" the house red golf cart, which made getting to the futher parts of the island easy. Also loved, the outdoor shower, views from the decks and of course the two huge resident tortoises that live in the garden. Only had one rainy day and the house had lots of games and cable to keep the kids busy. Highlight of the week was seeing both a manatee and a pod of dolphins on the same kayak trip. Thank you to the owners! We left feeling renergized! Will definately be back again.

Why North Captiva Island:
The first time we stepped off the boat onto North Captiva Island we were dazzled. It was the complete opposite of the busy city we had just come from. Quiet, natural, car-less and carefree. We couldn't believe it was just a 3 hour plane flight and no passports required. We wanted to share the experience with friends and family.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
I wish we had room for a hammock in our apartment but we don't so we really enjoy the one at the house in North Captiva
