About Kathy Biggs

I now live in Pigeon Forge Tn. but grew up in the Fort Myers area and have always loved Capitiva. This is like home to me. Weekends as a child were always spent boating to this island with my family. I eventually want to retire in this home so when I decided to build in 2007 I put in all the special features desired in a private home. I hope you enjoy my home as I do!!

Kathy Biggs purchased this house in 2009

Why Kathy Biggs chose Florida

I chose this location because of it's beautiful and private beaches. Captiva is also known as the #1 shelling beach in North America and I am a 'Shell Lover'. I spent many weekends with my family on this island.

What makes this house unique

You can enjoy a tranquil setting in the 2 & 1/2 story screened in Pool enclosure with a waterfall heated spa. The pool deck is large and has both shaded and sun areas for everyone. The entire first floor is a gameroom with a 12 foot shuffleboard table, foosball table, bar area, family room with large screen LCD television and DVD player, and a full bath. There are also 3 levels of decks offering both shaded and sunbathing areas and even a rooftop sundeck for the ultimate water view.

Great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience. A few things: the TV in the Master Bedroom didn't have a picture, the TV in another bedroom upstairs didn't work at all and the sofa bed was very old, uncomfortable and wouldn't close up at the end of the trip. Those were very minor things, though. We rarely had to use the TVs because we were so busy. The house was absolutely gorgeous. My favorite house I have ever rented on Captiva. They have thought of everything you might need or want on vacation. I definitely recommend paying the extra fee for the golf carts and bikes. It is well worth it. We will definitely be making a return trip!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am glad your stay was great. I am sorry about the TV's but that is why I have someone on island to take care of the little issues that might come up. I actually have insurance on my TV's with the local Wooster TV and they will come out and replace a non working TV immediately, but we have to know there's a problem. I will be replacing the sleeper sofa when I am there in two weeks although I have never had a comfort complaint before. In fact I was told it was quite comfortable. But It will be brand new by September 1st and I will make sure it is comfortable. I truly thank you for your response and look forward to having you back.

Most awesome house with all the amenities!

  • 5 of 5

I spent a week at Lazy Palm doing a girls getaway. Lovely large home thats within walking or golf cart distance to the beach, shopping, restaurants. It's a house that feels like a home. Great room style which is my favorite, large kitchen, dining & living room all together. Each bedroom has it's own bath & has an elevator for some of us that can't do stairs daily. Large screened pool & hot tub that we used daily after the beach so refreshing. Has screened porches at the main level & down by the pool. We loved they also had a ping pong table I hadn't played since I was a kid along with foose ball. We cooked, played games, swam, rode bikes & had the time of our lives. I highly recommend this home if you want to get away & enjoy whatever your heart desires. Whether it be staying in or going out. We booking it for next year. Captiva & this home is the best place to get away from wherever you're from.

The Ultimate Captiva Vacation Destination

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautifully designed home for a wonderful getaway on Captiva. It has all the comforts of a luxury custom home, a 5 Star hotel, and a private beach resort.

I absolutely love coming here with the group of girls I've know since childhood. It is the perfect place for our annual 'Island Sisters' week-long getaway. Two of the outstanding, and much appreciated, features are the elevator and the cat-walk on the roof. The highlights of my stay are watching the sunrises, sunsets, and spectacular moon rises from the catwalk.

This is a vacation destination that you will want to return to year after year.

Dream come true. Stayed in this unbelievable home. It has everything you can think of. It was truly heaven on earth. The elevator made it possible for me to go and stay there, there's no way I can do steps. The home, beach and all the local bars are so welcoming. This is so much better then getting 5 hotel rooms where they have nothing you need and you can't even find a place to set on the beach. If you stay here it has everything and there's room for 10 to sleep, party and enjoy the pool.this has to be the best place I've ever been on vacation. Can't wait to go back.

Trip of a Lifetime

  • 5 of 5

We rented this magnificent home for our girl’s getaway reunion week. We were looking for a home that was spacious enough to accommodate all of us women but it also had to have plenty of bathrooms! This home certainly exceeded our expectations! All the bedrooms had private baths (5) and there was another half bath on the 2nd floor. It was equipped with an elevator which was wonderful to bring up our luggage and groceries (which certainly saved our backs and knees). One of my favorite parts of the house was the crow’s nest on the roof. We would watch the beautiful Captiva sunsets at night and bring our coffee up with us in the morning for the amazing sunrises. There are golf carts and bikes so you can go shopping, ride across the street to the beach or go to dinner. You can operate the golf carts on the roads in this area of Captiva. We only drove our cars one night during the entire week and that was to go to Sanibel for dinner. If we weren’t at the beach sunning and shelling, we were at the house pool and spa swimming and relaxing. We are already planning our next trip in September and would not stay anywhere else nor are we interested in looking anywhere else. Everything was just perfect! The home is magnificent!

Recapturing our Youth

  • 5 of 5

This amazing home was the site of our reunion . Some of us girls had been apart for over thirty years. This home provided us tons of space and privacy yet at the same time the intimacy we all needed! Absolutely a amazing space beautifully decorated every need anticipated. Not doing well with stairs the elevator literally made my vacation I could save myself for beach walking. The game room and pool area was our hang out and the upstairs porch morning coffee and late night girl chat. So much room to play games or just walk around. Being older my bed is so important well don't worry I wanted to take theirs home with me if that tells you anything! Location was perfect growing up in the area and living there forty odd I know. It's on a quiet street yet seconds from all the happenings and golf carts come with! It was perfect just glorious and we are doing it again the year!! Counting the days to spend a fabulous girlfriend week at the Lazy Palm.

Car: recommended

Captiva is a beautiful quaint island and small village. There are no high rises and the beaches are fabulous and uncrowded. The wild life is awesome with dolphins, manatee, turtles, and birds. We are located so that you can walk every where or enjoy our optional golf cart. Shelling is some of the best any where.
