Only 100 feet from a 4-mile stretch of white sand beach, BLUE MANGO offers a very private, newly-renovated apartment nestled in the palms. This is a 1200 square foot apartment with a PRIVATE POOL and abundant decks. The owner maintains the upper apartment for themselves but will never be on island when you're there to intrude upon your vacation. Enjoy the indoor river stone shower, or the very large OUTDOOR, HOT/COLD SHOWER overlooking tropical lush surroundings. French doors in each bedroom open onto a large, PRIVATE DECK. The kitchen has granite counter tops and new appliances with an outdoor Weber gas BBQ by the pool.
North Captiva Island; where world-class fishing, boating, shelling, and sunsets await you. North Captiva is a true barrier island and is separated from the mainland by a 25-minute boat ride. No cars are allowed on the island and transportation is by golf cart or walking. Guests at BLUE MANGO enjoy a private pool, beach chairs, and a BRAND NEW 4-PERSON GOLF CART. While North Captiva is remote and secluded, that doesn’t mean you have to be completely disconnected. We offer UNLIMITED WIFI as well as SATELLITE TV and DVD PLAYER. Connect or disconnect…it’s up to you.

About Sarah Rapp
It has been a life-long dream to find a paradise home where we can relax, slow down from our busy schedules and enjoy our surroundings. We never knew a place like this existed until we found North Captiva Island. Finally a place where we can enjoy the beautiful landscape without the crowds, the high-rise hotels and the noise. Blue Mango called to us and we answered. We wish we could stay and never have to leave, but until then, we are happy to share this paradise with others. This isn't an investment business, it is our heart and sole. We have prepared Blue Mango exactly how we want to enjoy with a dash of luxury. We hope you love it as much as we do.

Why Sarah Rapp chose Captiva
North Captiva Island is such a rare place. We struggle with wanting to tell the world about it and how much we love it but at the same time, we want to keep it a secret. It's so quiet here you just can't help but relax. You can sit and do nothing or, you can have a different activity everyday. Island hopping, dolphin watching, hiking the nature preserve, shelling, fishing, enjoying a great meal, etc., etc. All of it's possible here with the rest of the world just a short ferry ride away.
What makes this Apartment unique
This island is remote, yet accessible. We once stayed on an island that was "off the grid" and, even though we had generated power and bottled water, it was just a little too remote for us. On North Captiva, you can be as secluded and still as you want to be, or you can head to the tiki bar and make friends, get a gourmet meal, surf the internet from the deck, go catch fresh fish to grill OR HAVE IT DELIVERED!! North Captiva is very safe and even though we are a 25-minute ferry ride from the nearest hospital, we actually have a fire-station with EMTs 24/7 in the event of an emergency. Oh, and, have your own private plane? We have a landing strip for your use.

Wonderful location & very nicely maintained!
This house is quite a gem. I love the privacy of the front porch and the pool area was cute and very well kept.
Perfect escape to paradise without leaving US
Dare I say it was a perfect vacation? What an incredibly charming island and house this is! The amenities were outstanding, very clean and well stocked. Lots of games, movies, etc. for down time inside. Pool was perfect for quick dips or just reading/sunbathing. Only a short walk to the white sandy beach with few people. Made it easy to get back and forth to house, especially with kids! Perfect for couples getaway or for family of 4 or 5. Owners were very accommodating and friendly. Island was small and felt very safe for kids to explore. Marinas had lively restaurants with welcoming staff. Lots of opportunities to see dolphins and sea turtles or collect fabulous shells! My kids are begging to return! It was the first time we've ever been on true "island time". HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Blue Mango. This house is a fully equipped and colorful and comfy home. We loved the pool and all the equipment for the wonderful beach - which is just steps from the house. A really great location. We had great service from Tortuga Properties including golf cart rides and help with our bags/groceries from to and from the boat at Barnacles. We read lots of books, watched the Olympics, and just enjoyed walking the beach and watching the sunsets in the great weather. We enjoyed eating at the Mango Pool Bar and On the Waterfront. This was our first time on North Captiva, and we will be back!
Dear Mellancamp Family,
Thank you for your wonderful review. It sounds as though you made great use of your time at Blue Mango. We love it when someone “gets it!” See you soon!

Great Location! Gorgeous 2 min walk to the beach!
Such a great way to spend a weekend getaway! Very roomy house with everything we could need and views that took our breath away. The beach was only a short 2 min walk but when we wanted to stay in, the heated pool was such a refreshing option. Perfect retreat!!
Thanks so much for the review. We’re so happy you enjoyed your time at Blue Mango!
Christmas Holiday Vacation
This beach house really has it all. There was a group of 4 of us who stayed and we just loved it. We bought over groceries to use during our stay but you can easily have them delivered to the house as well. The decor and layout was super charming and the appliances were all updated! It really has everything you need including games, cooking supplies, tv, etc. There is a really short walk to the beach which was amazing for sunrises and sunsets. Golf carts were provided so if we wanted to stop at the local club house restaurant, we could easily do so. There is also an amazing ice cream shop that we stopped at before we departed at Barnacles (little local restaurant where the ferry stops). We had constant check ins from the manager who was able to help us if we had any questions (amazing service). If you want to really unwind during a holiday, I would highly recommend staying here.
Thank you so much for your great review! So happy you enjoyed our home and our little island. And so glad you found the best ice cream in Florida. Come stay with us again soon and be sure to ask for our returning guest discount!
If you are looking to relax in a gorgeous tropical paradise, this is the place!
After taking a short boat ride over to the island, accompanied by jumping dolphins, we were met at the marina by the property manager, Duncan, who took care of our luggage and whisked us away to Blue Mango. The pictures don't do it justice! Beautiful, spacious and the owners have taken care of every detail. We had pre-ordered our groceries so we didn't have to take that time out of our trip to shop. They were already put away when we arrived! Beds were comfortable, shower was nice and we had all that we could have wanted at our fingertips. House is beautiful inside and out. Fell in love with driftwood lamps and hammock where we enjoyed relaxing naps while listening to rain. Rains there pretty frequent but short lived and then sun. Beach is a short walk away and great for shelling, sitting in the sand and watching your stress roll out with the waves! Not many folks there when we were so we felt like we had a private beach. After soaking up the sun all day, it was wonderful to jump into the pool at the house and cool off. We stocked the little fridge under the tiki bar so we could enjoy a drink when we were relaxing. Internet is good so take a speaker so you can listen to music by the pool. The sunsets on the beach are amazing so be sure to catch all of those you can. Three restaurants and a tiki bar & grill on the island. We tried all and recommend the Grouper sandwich at Barnacle Phil's, the filet at the Boathouse and On the Water at the tiki bar - ask for Suzy! In the marina, you can see manatee in the mornings and evenings. So cool! You travel the island by foot or by golf cart, which is provided by the owners and wonderful for exploring. We saw gopher turtles, cool tree frogs, a raccoon and tons of tropical birds. Outdoor grill worked perfectly and we enjoyed grilling several meals. Grilled fish for two meals that we caught! Went out with a guide and it was a blast. Can book through Duncan or Boats & Fun, ask for Dalton. Overall this was a fun, relaxing week where all of our stress and worries disappeared. Definitely booking again and recommending to friends and family.
Thanks so much for your wonderful review of Blue Mango. You describe exactly our routine when we get the chance to visit and exactly why we love North Captiva. Come see us again soon.
Grocery delivery services available, information in our welcome packet. 24 hour emergency fire and rescue on the island.
