North Captiva Island house description

“Sea Urchins” is a brand new island home that will make your family’s visit to North Captiva even more unforgettable. Nestled in the treetops of native palms and tropical Seagrape trees on almost one acre of land, this comfortable retreat offers seclusion and privacy that embraces the beauty of this coastal barrier island. The beach is a delightful 4 minute walk from the house, but bicycles and electric golf carts are included for your convenience. The Safety Harbor Club’s wharf is the perfect place for fishing adventures and Sea Urchins guests can rent boat slips for a small fee if they would like to bring their own boats to the island.

“Sea Urchins” is island inspired and your family’s comfort and enjoyment were thoughtfully considered in the house design. On the main level, a large deck overlooks a small fresh water lake. It is the perfect perch for watching wildlife or sipping your morning coffee. Three bedrooms are provisioned with queen-sized beds and all have French doors which allow access to the wrap-around porches and decks. The Lanikai Room has an attached half bath, the Captiva Room has an attached master bath with a waterfall walk-in shower and the Abaco Room is attached to the guest bath with a small tub for bubble-bath enthusiasts. The back deck's outdoor shower is the perfect place to rinse off after a fun day at the beach and showering under the stars is also highly recommended. (If you haven't tried it, you need to!) A reading alcove has a queen-size mattress and is a cozy bunk for movie night or curling up with a good book. A mahogony kitchen table crafted from reclaimed marine timbers seats eight and the kitchen’s island bar seats an extra four. The living room has 2 large comfy couches, a fireplace, and a 50” television with DirecTV. A DVD player can be connected to the T.V. for movie night or used to stream media onto the big screen. A variety of family-fun board games are stored in the seaman’s chest behind the couch. On the second level, a large loft is equipped with four full size beds, its own 32” TV and DVD player, a half-bath and a small south-facing deck. A secret “Tarpon Trench” playroom is new in 2015 and has already been tested and approved by 'mini-urchins'. Wireless internet connection is available throughout the house.

'Sea Urchins' is located in Safety Harbor Club and its guests are entitled to the use of the Club's amenities including a large swimming pool, tennis courts, private beach access, fishing pier, private waterfront restaurant, clubhouse, and ice machine. The Safety Harbor Club wharf is a secure, convenient place for registered guests to moor their boats and slips can be rented for a small fee.

Two golf carts, bicycles, and sea kayaks are included in the house rental.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: The Coopers, Charlie, Sandy, Mike (18), Jesse (15), Zac (14) have owned property on North Captiva for the past 14 years and have built 5 house on the island. They have incorporated most of their favorite features into 'Sea Urchins.' The Coopers love sharing beach vacations with family and friends. They chose Safety Harbor Club as the site for their home because of its great location and amenities. On the building site, they were able to preserve almost every native tree on the property and nestle the home into the existing vegetation. Sandy: 'We wanted 'Sea Urchins' to be an extension of the natural beauty of the island and we want our guests to feel connected to this amazing place!' When he is not working on island projects, Charlie flies 777s for United Airlines.

Why the Owner Chose North Captiva Island:
Sandy: 'Even though we live nearby in South Fort Myers, when we get to North Captiva, it feels like we are a world away. There are no traffic jams and no crowds. If you forget to pack your shoes, it's no problem--how many other places can you go on vacation and stay barefoot the entire time?' North Captiva is a bridgeless island with no asphalt and no cars....sandy trails invite bicycles, electric golf carts, and your bare feet! Over 4 miles of pristine white sand beaches are perfect for beachcombing. The Gulf of Mexico, Pine Island Sound and Captiva Pass offer world-class fishing opportunities. Over 8 miles of pristine beaches are on nearby Cayo Costa (also bridgeless...take your boat or the sea kayaks and check it out!) Glorious sunsets are offered free nightly--amazing stargazing and dazzling sunrises too! Rare, abundant and beautiful wildlife can be discovered daily. North Captiva Island is an amazing place to spend time with your family and friends and make memories that will last a lifetime!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
'Sea Urchins' was designed to be as comfortable oasis for families. The house has expansive decks and wrap around porches, lots of cozy, comfy beds, and a large, beautifully equipped kitchen. 'Sea Urchins' is convenient to all island activities, but offers the feeling of a private Hemingway-like retreat. The house has been finely crafted with attention to detail and pays homage to the unique character and beauty of the island. 'Our goal is for 'Sea Urchins' to be one of the best vacation homes you have ever enjoyed. We want some of your happiest family memories to be made here. We are looking for repeat 'urchins'!'
