About Wendy and Mark 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!
Wendy and Mark Muller purchased this House in 2004

The Best of North Captiva
We've been coming to North Captiva for almost 7 years and Windswept is our favorite home by far. Mark and Wendy are wonderful hosts, the views from the house and tower never get old, the pool is large and private. You feel like your on an island vacation as soon as you see the home. We love Windswept!
Do we have to leave already?
This is a beautiful property positioned precisely on the correct part of the island. The yard borders the nature preserve which allows for adventurous fun exploring the little paths that wind thru the preserve. We were able to see many Gopher tortoises, black snakes, burrowing owls, various birds, coyotes, raccoons and the like. The island is plentiful with wildlife!
The beach is a short golf cart ride from the house and great for shelling and laying out. Hardly a soul on the beach when we were there. It almost felt like our own little island.
The owners were great and a treat to interact with. Wendy was very sweet and willing to help answer any questions we had before arriving and while staying at the house. The House is beautiful and the unique round construction with plentiful windows offered some very beautiful and relaxing views of both the preserve and the ocean. The house is very well stocked with dishes, pots and pans and utensils. We found everything we needed while staying at this beautiful house that we wished we could have extended our vacation a bit longer! While staying at the house you have access to the NCIC pools, kayaks, and bicycles that are all included with your rental as well as two golf carts.
If your wondering if a vacation at Windswept on North Captiva Island is the vacation for you. Simply ask yourself: Am I ready to get away from it all? Am I tired of all the hustle and bustle of daily living? Am I sick of sitting in traffic on my way back and forth to work or shopping? Do I want to enjoy a little piece of paradise right now? If you answered yes to hose questions then you must get away to Windswept on North Captiva Island!!
Over the top
Our first time at Windswep and it won't be our last.
Just a few words about our stay.
GORGEOUS SUNRISE AND SUNSETS
OH,, one more thing, bring extra food and less clothes -- you'll spend more time in bathingsuits, cut offs and tee tops and even that can be tooo much at times.
Beautiful home! Wonderful hosts! The owners were very attentive and quick to respond to any questions we had. The home was spacious and beautifully appointed and the beach and island are just gorgeous. We had a wonderful week and would definitely rent this home again. The pool and grill and outside areas in general were a definite plus!!
Fantastic house and trip!
We enjoyed a fantastic week at Windswept. The house was beautiful with everything you could wish for in it. The location at the edge of the nature preserve was secluded and beautiful. It was amazing to watch both sunrise and sunset over the water from the deck. Wendy and Mark were incredibly helpful hosts, frequently asking if we needed anything, bringing us groceries and rescuing us from a stuck golf cart! Having access to the pool, bikes and kayaks of NCIC was also great. Thanks for a wonderful stay!
What a wonderful place!
Our Family of 11 had a wonderful time at this delightful property. We had 5 households meeting for a week together; age ranges are 22 mos to 80 y. Everyone had a delightful time! Wendy and Mark are easily accessible through text for any minor questions regarding the television, where extra household paper products can be found and even offered to order us the few extra items we thought we may need after we unpacked our groceries with there Saturday grocery order. We did find out the small store at Mangos did have simple groceries like canned goods, milk etc for back up supplies.
The house is just lovely. Well stocked with towels, paper products, soaps, dishes and more kitchen appliances and dishes than I have in my own kitchen; plenty of spices too!
The decks are great. Sunset and sunrise was so gorgeous from the top deck! The pool was warm and enjoyed by all. The children's playground under the house near the pool was a great addition and both toddlers enjoyed the sand toys, slides, and putting green!
I would not hesitate to return !
