North Captiva Island house description

Come stay on a tropical island in a truly tropical-style luxury home. The adventure begins with a 20-minute boat ride from the mainland transporting you to a unique vacation experience; 'island time.' Once on the island, the pace of life slows allowing time for the finer things of life. The Coral Reef is the perfect house to experience this relaxed pace and rejuvenate the mind and spirit.

Our home was designed and built with island living in mind. The Coral Reef is ideal for extended families or a 2-family group. We have 2 master-bedroom suites, and private bathrooms for each of the four bedrooms! The generous verandas, decks, and patio extend the living space seamlessly to the tropical garden, North Captiva. Sunrises and sunsets as viewed from the decks and verandas are the perfect punctuation to a day 'on island.'

This home is complete with all the luxuries and more that one would expect of a first-class vacation home. We supply a computer with wireless high speed internet access; you may prefer to bring your own computer. There is unlimited long distance wired phone service for use by our guests. XBox 360 for the gamers in the group. We are constantly upgrading our amenities. Come stay in our island villa with friends and family, and I promise you will feel at home during your stay and rejuvenated when you leave.

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: This island home was built in 2005. It has been a pleasure to share it with guests over the years. We love North Captiva, and it is great to have others come out and enjoy the island also. We live in Springfield; and one day, when we retire we hope to be able to spend more time on Island. 'Till then, it is our pleasure to share the experience of North Captiva with all our guests. So, come and enjoy our island. Always a pleasure to host your stay!

                  Why the Owner Chose North Captiva Island:
                  The Coral Reef, professionally decorated and fully furnished, is a one-of-a-kind home designed for island living and ready to be your home away from home. North Captiva is a unique respite in this world of hustle - no cars, no street lights, 3.5 miles of natural beach all on a little tropical island, North Captiva! We fell in love with it, and we know you will too!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The most unique benefit of staying at the Coral Reef is rest and relaxation mixed with just the right amount of discovery and socializing - away from it all, but still able to enjoy several unique quality restaurants and more sea shells and sand dollars than you will ever be able to bring home. With no street lights you can enjoy watching the stars and moon travel across the darkened sky. Staying on North Captiva is just an amazing experience we call it 'Island Time.'
