About Mark & Wendy Muller
The 'Windswept Family' has grown over the years since we began renting out our vacation home. We are proud to say it has grown by hundreds of traveling families that are very dear to our hearts! It is the best feeling ever to see families coming back "home" year over year to vacation. At Windswept... our house is your house. We do our best to make this your real home away from home... not just another stark vacation rental. There're tons of fluffy white towels in the baths, fine bed linens, super comfortable beds, extra blankets, every kitchen gadget we can think of... plus the POOL (heated and super excellent) gorgeous views of the preserve and Gulf...plus Privacy! To top it off.. we are available on the island if you need us. Mark & I have lived full-time on this island for 16 years and started out renting vacation homes for vacations here too. North Captiva was the first place we ever rented a whole vacation home; we had always stuck to hotels, apartment hotels, and condos to rent for our vacations. We loved this island so much after our first visit; we pulled up stakes from New Hampshire and Massachusettes and decided to grow up and raise our family on the island. Once you have vacationed and really lived like a local in a luxury home like Windswept, you will happily become a returning guest too! Our Vacation Property, Windswept, is proudly; Owned, Booked, Maintained, and Managed by US the OWNERS. We take pride in our properties. We strive to take superior care of our property and provide you with the BEST BEACH Vacation Rentals EVER!
Mark & Wendy Muller purchased this House in 2004
Why Mark & Wendy Muller chose North Captiva Island
Loved it from the get go... buying all of our supplies and heading to the beach for a long weekend. Renting a whole house was something we would always try to do from then on. We had it down to a science though... since we would fly in to Orlando or Ft Lauderdale and drive around a bit on our way here, we always had 3 or 4 soft sided coolers (made of fabric) folded them up and packed them inside 1 cooler bag with masks and snorkles and deflated air mattresses. This cooler bag- we checked it. At Publix we just unpacked the coolers and stuffed them with grocery supplies. Vacations on North Captiva require less stuff then mainland vacations. You wear your swimsuits most of the time, flip flops are best instead of shoes :) and every home has laundry- so you could wear 2 or 3 outfits the whole time and just wash 'em. Now that is freedom... that is relaxation. Just stretching yourself out on the sand.
What makes this House unique
We know you will have a great vacation here. When explaining a vacation at Windswept on North Captiva... we always try to imagine what it would be like to be discovering this island for the treasure that it really is for the first time again. Mostly we just think of how many beautiful and unique things are collected into one gorgeous spot.. not well known... undiscovered if you will, and that may be what makes it so beautiful. The best reasons to enjoy a vacation at Windswept are definitely the location, the house, the privacy, and the heated pool. Few others will ever see North Captiva from your vantage at Windswept, with the sun rising at one side of the property till the sun sets at the other. Windswept is on the private island directly to the North of the islands of Sanibel and Captiva. As most would say, we are like Sanibel and Captiva islands were 50 years ago, before the bridges. 'Cut-off' to some degree, but this makes the island all the more special. Plenty to do here with fishing, beach combing, shelling, boat rentals, etc., but what is also just as alluring is what is NOT available.

Great getaway with family and friends
We had an excellent trip on North Captiva. Four adults and four kids shared the house, and couldn’t have enjoyed it more. Wendy and Mark were wonderful hosts, making us feel at home and helping with any questions we had. We definitely recommend the house and the island. Thank you!
Property was just as described!! Secluded, easy access to beach, and large pool area. The house was very nice!! Unique circular floor plan with plenty of room. We were a family of nine and had plenty of room for all. Mark and Wendy were great hosts and helpful with all aspects of our stay. Would highly recommend this property and plan to return.
LOVED this house and the location
This was our first time staying on North Captiva Island and I'm so glad we did! The island is a hidden gem in South Florida. It's "conveniently cutoff" from the outside world and I wouldn't want it any other way. This property is perfectly located near a quiet preserve and close to the beach. The pool is very nice, clean and the entire property is well managed. Mark and Wendy are great hosts and extremely helpful. We hope to go back!
Our group of 6 adults and 2 children spent a week at Windswept and had a truly wonderful time. Although a couple days of our week were a bit cool in the 60s the pool area is so protected and the pool temperature a warm 90o we were able to relax in the sun and swim everyday of our vacation. We absolutely loved the peace and tranquility of North Captiva….the walks through the Preserve and along the beach; exploring the island on golf carts and enjoying kayaking in the bay were highlights of our week. The kitchen is very well equipped; as the chief “cook” of the group I very much appreciated that! There is an abundance of both pool, kitchen and bath towels, throw pillows, blankets, etc. to make yourself very comfortable. Outdoor furniture is plentiful and comfortable as well. Wendy and Mark were really great hosts from the second we arrived on the island to the second we said our goodbyes! I would not hesitate to choose Windswept for a future vacation on North Captiva Island!
