About the Property

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 4 adults

Located on a nicely landscaped lot, 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 views of the sunset over the Gulf of Mexico or swim in your own private pool. 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 all major appliances and is fully equipped. Living room has couch, 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 full bath. Below the home is a hot and cold beach shower for freshening up after combing the nearby beach for shells. A golf cart is included in the rental. Cleaning fee of $125 is additional and payable by check only. The ferry to island costs $40 per person round trip and $8 a day to park your car. NCIC

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 golf carts are the only way to travel. The pace of North Captiva Island 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 Island offers 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.
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 was named The Little Ark because 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.
