About the Property

Heated pool, ping pong & foosball + all beach gear. Ultimate vacation getaway!!!

NEW FOR 2017 ! : private heated swimming pool with adjacent BBQ/dining area plus extensive ground floor exterior lounge and games area including foosball table, ping pong table and cornhole (sandbag) game.

Exotic furnishings from faraway places await you at this professionally-decorated and landscaped luxury home located just 50 yards from the beautiful Gulf beach. "The Compass Rose" is a fabulous deal compared to 4-bedroom beachfront rentals on the island. Being only 50 yards from the beach and with unobstructed views from most angles, "The Compass Rose" is just like beachfront. And when you add in all of the amenities that are offered, the end result is a price/value combination that just can't be beat! When comparing "The Compass Rose" to other properties, be sure that "Beach View" really means a GREAT beach view and that you are located so close to the beach that you can actually hear the waves! Many of the home rental listings on the island use vague terms such as "just steps to the beach", "a very short walk to the beach", "just minutes from the beach" or "a stone's throw from the beach" to give the impression that they are located very close to the beach when they actually are not. "The Compass Rose" is located just 50 yards from the beach. There is a BIG difference between getting a VERY LIMITED beach view 500 yards from the beach and a GREAT beach view with surf sounds just 50 yards from the beach.

Pamper yourself with the finest amenities in this 4000 sq. ft. (2500 under air), 4 bdrm. dream beach house spread out over 5 levels. You can indulge yourself in countless luxury appointments such as the fine goose down comforters, plush monogrammed terrycloth bathrobes, dreamy bedroom settings, a fully-equipped gourmet kitchen by Kraft-Maid with Jenn-Air cook top and Nespresso espresso/cappuccino maker, and a deluxe hydro massage hot tub on the Master Bedroom deck. Bathed in warm natural earth tones, the recurrent theme is one of a distant island getaway, featuring an array of exotic materials such as bamboo, teak and natural fibres complemented by a selection of tasteful antiques.

The main living area has a 15 feet high cathedral ceiling with bamboo lattice designed to simulate a tiki hut, complete with its own bar, sofas with top grain imported Italian leather, Persian rug, 19th century accent pieces and home theater/entertainment center. The latest electronic and entertainment features add to your enjoyment, including high speed wireless internet, 4 flat screen TVs, a DirecTV satellite dish with over 200 channels, a Sony home theater system, DVD/VCR players and a vast VHS video/board games library.

Due to the special upside down design of the home, the bedroom level is lower down and the living levels are higher up, thereby affording great views from the areas where you spend the most time. There are also decks on 4 levels (2 of which are screened).

The views will remain with you forever: the rooftop patio, at a height of nearly 40 ft. above ground level, offers 360 degree views of the Gulf of Mexico, Captiva Pass and the State Land Preserve.

Included in 'The Compass Rose' house rental package is unlimited free access to all of the facilities of the North Captiva Island Club. The club has 2 swimming pools (Olympic size heated and cooled + lap size heated) and a jacuzzi. The brick paved pool area is over 14,000 square feet, with over 80 chaise lounges, plus a Spa facility with steam room, sauna, air conditioned changing rooms and lockers. For the active type, North Captiva Island Club also has two lighted Har-Tru tennis courts, a fitness room, basketball court, and sand volleyball court.
You can then relax with your favorite cocktail at Hidden Cove Pool Bar, where a pool side lunch is also available. Kayaks, bicycles, paddle boats and fishing gear rentals are all available at no charge at North Captiva Island Club.

For those guests who like to explore the island, there are 20 miles of bike paths, exclusive of the State Preserve areas. There are also four restaurants on the island: The Boat House, Mango's Island Grill, Barnacle's, and Over The Waterfront.

The house rental also includes all linens and towels (house + beach), beach umbrellas, consumables such as toilet paper and cleaning supplies, and clean-up after departure.

NOTE!: All rentals are not what they seem to be! As you look over numerous property rentals, you will no doubt see many pretty pictures. But what you do not see is the condition in which the properties are kept. We have personally seen, and stayed, in properties on North Captiva Island that are rented by agents/intermediaries (as opposed to directly rented out by the owners). These properties looked great on the Internet, but they were simply not being kept in top condition (some examples: peeling paint, rotting decks, sagging mattresses and soiled/dirty wall-to-wall carpets). We give you our complete assurance that this will never be your experience at "The Compass Rose": this is our personal "home away from home" and we continually maintain/take care of it as if we lived there all year long.

You can rest assured that there will be no surprises and that "what you see is what you get!". In addition, in order to maintain "quality control" and provide our guests with top-notch service throughout their stay, we personally rent out our property and have our own private service staff.

The Island:
North Captiva Island is the best-kept secret in Florida: only four miles long and half a mile wide, North Captiva is a Caribbean-like barrier island accessible only by a 20-minute boat ride. There are no cars and no paved roads (golf carts only on sand roads!)

Car: Not Necessary

North Captiva Island is the best-kept secret in Florida: only four miles long and half a mile wide, North Captiva is a Caribbean-like barrier island accessible only by a 20-minute boat ride. There are No Cars and No Paved Roads (transportation is only by electric golf cart on sand roads!). Nearby Captiva Island and Sanibel Island were once just like North Captiva until bridges brought traffic and hordes of tourists to their shores.

One word describes North Captiva Island best: Nature! On our pristine white beaches, you will find all kinds of rare and exotic Seashells. We also offer world-class Sport-fishing for tarpon, snook and redfish. A large part of the island is a 700-acre State Land Preserve for the protection of endangered wildlife: migratory and nesting birds include osprey, herons, egrets and pelicans. Manatees and dolphins are regular sights from our shores!

Other Activities: shelling, nature walks

Golf: Alden Pines Country Club is a Bermuda grass semi-private course located on nearby Pine Island. It is easily accessible from Pineland Marina (take Island Girl Charters ferry service from North Captiva Island). Water comes into play on many holes and narrow fairways make for a challenging game.

Fort-Myers RSW Airport, a private optional shuttle service is available to bring you grocery shopping and to deliver you to the water taxi. Once on the island, you will be greeted and brought to the house. Porters will assist you with luggage and groceries.
