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 Captiva

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.

Map

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.

Looking forward to Next Year!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Lazy Palm. Looking forward to next year for our third stay. This Home was perfect for my husband and I, our two daughters and their spouses and our two little grandsons. It is spotless clean. Four bedrooms and each has its own private bathroom. If there is an overflow for guests there is a pull out couch in the basement. For our group, four bedrooms were perfect. There is a lovely screened pool area with a hot tub, a downstairs area where you can play shuffle board, ping pong and Foosball. The living area has a kitchen that is stocked with everything you would ever need. We celebrated a birthday, an early Thanksgiving with turkey and all the fixings, and lots of family dinner evenings. But, that didn’t stop us from heading out to the Bubble Room, the Mucky Duck and the numerous other restaurants located within walking distance. The beach is about s five minute walk. Having the golf cart made things so easy. We loaded it every day and drove over to the beach, dropped off the towels, coolers, sand toys and food and spent the day playing in the sand and surf and being entertained every day by s pod of dolphins that managed to show up early afternoon. Sunsets were spectacular and the last night we got a wave from a large stingray just as the sun was setting. Perfect place, you will not be disappointed. See you next year, Lazy Palm,

A tropical paradise, a wonderful island escape!

  • 5 of 5

A truly beautiful location for an island vacation. This lovely home has all the eminities you need, 5 bedrooms, a kitchen that opens to the living and dining area and adjacent to the outdoor balcony. The balcony overlooks the large pool, hot tub, and game room. Spacious bedrooms and bathrooms make for a very comfortable stay. Blocks from the gulf beach or bay makes for great outdoor experience. We loved sunning at the beach in the morning, cooling off in the pool and either eating their or one of the many fabulous restaurants on the island. You can walk, ride the bikes or golf cart to the many restaurants, shops and sites on the island. A truly enjoyable and relaxing vacation.

Just bring your friends, family, and groceries

  • 4 of 5

Great time for a girls retreat/ birthday. There were a few problems with the houses featurs, but the management company was quick to fix them. Beware of one unhappy permanent neighbor who is not happy about this fun house being a rental. My only disappointment was that we could not stay longer.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking time to write a review. I want all of my guests to have a perfect vacation. I am not sure what the exact issues were so I'm taking a shot in the dark. I know sometimes it takes a few minutes to figure out TV remotes, ( unless there is a teenager in the group, then they always know how to work things ) or sometimes locating the upstairs thermostat. I do not know what needed attention during your stay but I am glad everything was dealt with immediately. That is why I have an on island contact person. I want every guest to have the perfect vacation. I have never had any one complain about the neighbor, although there is one that can be picky if cars are parked in the road. I have plenty of room for 4 cars in the driveway and can make arrangements for others if needed. It is a neighbor hood, and like ANY place, home or hotel, there would be a proper time at night to reduce the noise level. Again I am unaware of the exact issue and I am not making any accusations. My neighbors are very friendly and my neighbor across the street is a super guy and actually is very happy to answer any questions or be of any help he can. Thanks again for your stay and I hope to have you return.

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.
