Celebrate at Windswept with award winning excellent service, luxury, and vacationing!

A vacation at Windswept, on North Captiva, is the perfect place to reconnect with nature, your family, and your friends. Relax on the shady treetop tower, recline in the outdoor living room, bathe in the sun around the pool, and marvel at the stars drifting in a sea above the sea! Sleep in luxury, cook in the finest gourmet kitchen, and dine with sweeping views of a mystical palm tree forest! Search the beach, collect shells to your hearts’ content, catch fish for dinner from the surf, explore the sea islands the way they always were- like Sanibel before the cars & traffic- Just the Beach and the Sea!
Windswept offers luxurious accommodations, heated private pool, and a truly one-of-a-kind vacation retreat. From the first foot you step on to North Captiva Island’s dock, it is just like the very first step when you get off a roller coaster ride. The world just stops spinning! In today's hectic world, we all need a place like that in our lives.

Windswept is located AT the Preserve Beach and Walking Trail Access with just a short walk to the most beautiful, most serene, and Private beaches on North Captiva Island. Our home is custom designed and crafted, taking its inspiration from Old-Florida and Key West Style Inns. Four full bedrooms and a sleeping loft (fifth bedroom) are beautifully decorated with fine furnishings and sumptuous linens. Attention to details carries throughout this magical oasis by the sea. The broad sweeping and open-concept great room offers ample seating for larger groups. The 65 inch 4K Ultra HD TV in the living area is complete with DIRECTV, DVD, and Bose Surround sound Home Theater.

The Master Bedroom Suite offers a spectacular 'Tommy Bahama' King Size Bed with a desk and sitting area facing views of the Bay. The Master bath suite is complete with double shower heads and temperature controls in the awesome walk-in shower, as well as a jetted corner jacuzzi tub and dual sink vanity.

A second king size bedroom is located on the opposite side of the beach house adjacent to the Guest Bath Suite. Two guest bedrooms (1 Queen, 1 Full) are decorated with a subtle beachy flair. The upstairs loft bedroom offers a full size bed with twin trundle bed and is also home to a 32'LCD Flat screen TV and XBOX 360 game system... a great kids play area with games and toys.

Fun, Games, Watersports, Poolside Picnic, Grillin' and chillin', something for everyone! With one of the largest heated pools on the island, a spacious and private pool deck surrounded by preserve. The ground level of this amazing vacation home brings together the fun of the beach with a festive Boardwalk flair. Our 'mini-golf' putting greens offer a great diversion from all day at the beach! The treetop lookout tower is the perfect place for relaxing, resting, and gathering...

Never Mind the breathtaking SUNSETS! Climb to the top to gaze at the stars, make a wish on a shooting star...why WISH? It's already come true - you're at Windswept! -The vacation rental that collects the many perfect qualities of a vacation rental home on North Captiva.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Mark & I have lived full-time on this island for 8 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, cheaper apartment hotels, and condos to rent for vacations. We did vacation in Florida a lot, though. Massachusettes and New Hampshire are really cold in the winter. For our first rental on the island.. we stayed ... just the 2 of us, close to the beach. Well no matter the house, renting a whole home was just perfect. We grilled every meal even breakfast on a screen porch by the sea. (Fresh Wild Mango Quesadillas of course!) 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! Kind regards, Wendy & Mark Muller Owners of Windswept North Captiva 'just sending you a reminder of how thankful we are for the exceptional service you provided to ensure we had the vacation of a lifetime. - Shelli Harrigan 2009'

Why the Owner Chose Captiva, FL, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
