Property description

Windswept offers luxurious accommodations, private heated pool, and a genuine 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. 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 and share cocktails 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 is located AT the Preserve Beach and Walking Trail Access Point 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 elegant furnishings and sumptuous linens. Attention to details carries throughout this magical oasis by the sea. The broad sweeping and open-concept great room offer ample seating for larger groups. The 65 inch Ultra HD TV in the living area is complete with HD Direct TV, Blu-Ray 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 the preserve. 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 beach flair. The upstairs loft bedroom (Sleeps 5 in beds) offers 1 full-size bed with 1 twin trundle bed, as well as 2 twin bed sleeping areas (memory foam mattresses - set it up as a cool sectional sofa for loft lounging), and is also home to a 32'LCD Flat screen TV, a Playstation 4, and X BOX 360 game system (with guitar hero) ... A great kid play area with games and toys.

Fun, Games, Water sports, 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 putting greens offer a great diversion from all day at the beach! The lookout treetop tower is the perfect place for relaxing, resting, and gathering... Never Mind the breathtaking sunsets!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: 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!

Why the Owner Chose Captiva, FL, USA:
We care personally for this property. Mechanicals, linens, kitchen stock, outdoor amenities... all properly maintained and prepared for each arrival. We really want you to walk in the door and say WOW!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Access to the miles of beaches of the North Captiva Nature Preserve is included with your stay. Privacy abounds with the entire pool area surrounded by preserve with wonderful southern exposure. We are fully 'kid/family' equipped and specialize in multi-generation vacations. See our long list of amenities for the whole family to delight in their stay.
