Property description

Serendipity means a 'fortuitous happenstance' or 'pleasant surprise'. It was first coined by Horace Walpole in 1754. In a letter he wrote to a friend Walpole explained an unexpected discovery he had made by reference to a Persian fairy tale, The Three Princes of Serendip. The princes, he told his correspondent, were “always making discoveries, by accidents and sagacity, of things which they were not in quest of”.

Enjoy one of North Captiva Island’s Best vacation homes offered. Serendipity is a fabulous 4 bedroom home with incredible Gulf of Mexico views!. This amazing home has it all! From the moment you arrive you will be mesmerized by the wonderful appointments, furnishings, amenities and sweeping views of the Gulf of Mexico. The home has 2800 square feet under a/c with more than 4000 square feet of living space including open and screen decks. It was renovated and professionally decorated from top to bottom in February 2014. Most everything in this home is brand new including AC units and the pool heater!

Serendipity has a private screened pool area just steps to the beach. This home is built for island living and setup for large multi-generational families. North Captiva is an amazing place to explore and Serendipity is equipped with two golf carts to explore the island.

There is plenty to do at Serendipity with a heated pool, games, beach chairs and towels. Also enjoy cooking in a gourmet kitchen with brand new stainless steel appliances and lots of granite counter space to work. The home has 3 flat screen TVs with Directv and a lovely look out lounge. You won’t want to leave this amazing place. The home allows up to 10 people and there is plenty of room to stretch out with a game area, living room, many porches and a lovely pool area. Also, enjoy a fabulous roof top deck with sunset and sunrise views - this deck has some of the best views on the island with cable railings for unobstructed viewing.
