Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Sherri and Rick Agnew Owners and Island neighbors. The Junonia house was owned by Martha and Mark Tuttle. We purchased the house after the passing of our good friend Martha in Spring of 2009. We wanted to keep the house as we all remember and love. The house is reminiscent of a fine rare shell known as the 'Junonia'. This is our treasure to share with all who would like to experience our bare foot lifestyle. In hopes that you can recapture the invigorating sensation of mental and physical well being that we experience by the sea. As the pace of life speeds up, we escape to Cayo Costa to fid our true balance. It is like recharging our internal batteries. Sherri is an interior designer and Rick is a commercial real estate broker by trade. We live in Columubus, Indiana and come the island on and off throughout the year. We have 'Sanddollar De LaCosta' as our home away from home. We have restored the Junonia beach house as it was originally built, totally Island style.

Why the Owner Chose Captiva, FL, USA:
We stumbled onto the island by fate. We have a neighboring home in which we live in on and off throughout the year. Our island is a majestical and spiritual place and you too will come to see what we mean and why we want to share the experience with you. It is always hard to leave.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Cayo Costa beach is as isolated as is beautiful. Many times one can go there and truly be all by yourself! It is often referred to as 'the best kept secret in south Florida'
