Property description

Located on a nicely landscaped lot with fruit trees and coconut palms, this 2 bedroom beach house is just a few steps from the beach and is an ideal intimate vacation spot. Sit in your own private rooftop spa and enjoy unobstructed views of the sunset over the Gulf of Mexico. Swim in your own private heated pool and then relax in a 2 person hammock underneath palm trees. Just a few steps up from the beach, this single level home has an attractive screened deck perfect for dining or just relaxing. The kitchen has modern upgraded appliances and is fully equipped.Living room has couch, 46-inch plasma flat screen TV with Direct TV satellite programming , DVD, VCR & highspeed internet/ WiFi at no extra cost. The master bedroom features a queen size bed and private bath. The second bedroom has twin beds with a beautiful full bath. Below the home is a hot and cold beach shower for freshening up after combing the nearby beach for shells.

The vacation of a lifetime is awaiting those who are willing to journey to paradise and beyond. The exclusive island of North Captiva is the pinnacle of luxury and privacy, the spot where Floridians go to vacation. The only way to get there is by boat (ferry) and once on the island, bikes and golf carts are the only way to travel. The pace of Captiva is slow and smooth, a great romantic getaway for couples or a chance to spend quality time with your family and make memories that will last a lifetime. The Little Ark is within a short walking distance to one of the finest secluded pristine white powder beaches in Florida. North Captiva offers all the conveniences, amenities and activities of a traditional luxury resort while at the same time offering the tranquility of Florida's natural environment, where you can enjoy walking for miles and not seeing any signs of civilization except the footprints you leave in the sand.

Rental of The Little Ark can include use of all the amenities of the NCIC resort facilities at optional additional charge of $75: 2 pools, hot tub, exercise room, lighted Har-Tru tennie courts, spa, sauna, kayaks, bicycles, fishing poles, beach chairs and umbrellas, kids playgound and basketball half court. Since there are no cars or paved roads on the island, your rental also includes a four person electric golf cart for your entire stay. There is a 700 acre state land preserve with walking trails.

Booking your vacation with the owners allows us to quote you a better price.

What is the Little Ark?
It is the name of our home (every home on North Captiva has a name). It was the name of the house when we bought it. It is unlucky to change the name of a boat when it is sold, so we chose to keep the name of our house the same. In 2004, Hurricane Charlie, a category 4 hurricane, ripped through the island causing major damage. Our house, The Little Ark, sustained very little damage and sailed through the storm.
