Top of the line furnishings, tile floors, tumbled stone showers and a master bath jacuzzi are just some of the amenities at Butterfly Breeze. A large gourmet kitchen with stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops, breakfast bar and a cozy window seat will please the gourmet cook.

Three large bedrooms, three full baths and a den with a very comfortable pull out queen sofa, 2 kings, 2 twins and queen pull out sleeps 6 to 8 people comfortably. Tile floors, tumbled stone showers, and tasteful 'Pottery Barn' style decorations adorn this light and airy home.

The rental comes complete with all linens and towels, bath and beach, paper towels, toilet paper, soaps; dish, laundry and bath. We will rent only to family groups, couples and responsible adults over the age of 25. No smoking and no pets.

North Captiva is part of the Charlotte Harbor chain, north of Sanibel and Captiva, approximately four miles long and 1/2 mile wide. White sand beaches, shelling and world-class fishing are just some of the treasures this island has to offer. Nature abounds here with regular sitings of dolphins and manatees from the beaches. The 700 acre State Land Preserve provides a sanctuary for many migratory and nesting birds.

From Fort Myers Airport a private shuttle service is available to bring you grocery shipping and deliver you to the ferry. The ferry is approximately 25 minutes. Upon arrival you will be greeted, introduced to the island and taken to our home.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2006

                  About the owner: Bob and I live in Vermont. North Captiva provides a great reprieve from our long winters. We owned and operated two adventure travel companies and now have an organic seed garlic farm in Vermont (Green Mountain Garlic).

                  Why the Owner Chose North Captiva Island:
                  We both fell in love with North Captiva the moment we stepped on the island. The quiet natural state of the island is unique and refreshing. The beaches are lovely and the wildlife is fascinating. Bob loves to fish and the fishing here is world class.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We have tried to create a clean, open and airy feel though out the house. We have beautiful views in every direction. This a great house for a family vacation. Very well equipped with all the comforts of home. Plenty of space for everyone to spread out and have fun. Enjoy the 2 cruiser bikes to explore the island and the Concept II rowing machine to get some exercise out on the deck!
