About The Owner

Mandy and John St. Clair reside in Indianapolis, Indiana and have two daughters and a golden retriever. They fell in love with North Captiva Island on their first visit and purchased property. They subsequently spent three years designing and building Bluefin Beach House. They built a home that is great for bathing suits and for cocktail parties and dinners, too. It's a house for fun. It's a house that is always filled with extended family and friends. They travel here frequently with their girls who always have friends in tow. North Captiva is very unique and is the perfect place to unwind and come together as a family.

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

Why The Owner chose North Captiva Island

North Captiva Island is a unique destination. A private island community that offers you privacy and undiscovered beaches. Part of the Lee Island Coast in Southwest Florida, North Captiva's access is provided by conveniently scheduled public ferries, private water charters and a private airstrip. Golf carts and bikes are the only form of transportation on the island, keeping the environment pristine. The island has 5 miles of white sandy beaches and offers some of the best shelling in the United States. ¾ of the island is an undeveloped 700 acre state land preserve - the perfect way to spend the day. The island also features fine dining, shopping and private club amenities. North Captiva Island is one of the few places left where man can live in complete harmony with nature. This unique island paradise is not for everybody. But then, it was never intended to be. One visit and you'll see why we fell in love and now call this home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Stunning house on North Captiva"



We had a great stay at this beautiful house! Luxury from top to bottom, this brand new house is beautifully decorated with attention to detail that you rarely find in a vacation rental. This large house is truly stunning, with high tech features and beautiful views from almost every window. The kids zone and baby zone saved us - it was so great not to have to travel with all of our baby gear, and our 3 year old was fully entertained on rainy days by the closet full of toys and crafts. Only one house back from the ocean, you could walk to the beach in less than a minute. The ocean near the house is a little rough for young ones to play, but gorgeous for strolls and sunsets. A short golf cart ride and a refreshing hike through the state preserve and there is a lovely long stretch of beach to spend the day. We did that with our young ones every second day, and were almost always alone - except for the odd sea turtle. We were there in January/beginning of February and it was very quiet on the island - definitely for you if you want to get off the grid for a spell. Once you settle into the pace, you won't want to return. The St. Clairs were incredibly attentive and responsive to our needs, which were few and far between. Because they really did think of everything. We'd highly recommend this rental.

Met all expectations!!!

  • 5 of 5

I can't add much to the owners description... all spot on. We took too many. Clothes and too much food, but better too much than too little. 300 ft from beach. Great location

Beautiful home made for a beautiful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The Bluefin Beach House was absolutely wonderful! The home was a perfect set up for our family (6 adults and 6 kids) and featured everything we could ever need! The pictures of this home do not do it justice! This was a great "get away from it all" vacation.

All of the bedrooms are incredibly spacious. The 3 master bedrooms allowed privacy for the adults while the kids room set-up was just so "cool". All the beds were comfortable with great bedding. The kitchen had everything you could ever need. And there was a ton of activities/games for the kids when they needed a break from the sun. The family room furniture was super comfortable for watching a movie in the evening.

The pool area was perfect. The pool itself stayed shaded most of the day while the pool deck was drenched in sun. This was great as the pool was cool and refreshing! There is also an outdoor shower by the pool to wash off all the sand from the beach!

The decks on the home are gorgeous with comfortable furniture and fantastic views! The small details that are taken care of in this home make it the perfect place to vacation!

Provisioning is a must when heading to the island, and the Island Club is great to work with and can accommodate all of your belongings! We drove to Florida and brought a few coolers with us. We went shopping on Saturday morning, loaded the coolers with food and dry ice and took the afternoon ferry to the house.

Jason, the home's caretaker, met us at the dock and was terrific to work with. We hope to return someday soon!!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

The Bluefin house was amazing! It had all the amenities. The living space and bedrooms were spacious and thoughtfully decorated. The outdoor pool/patio was great for kids and adults alike. Short distance from the beach. Beautiful sunsets. The caretaker and owners were very helpful. We would definitely stay here again.

WOW !!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The Blue Fin Beach house is an awesome retreat for family gathering to spend a fabulous time enjoying family time in an incredible home on North Captiva

Our family of grandparents and 3 daughters with their families (12) spent a week in paradise with absolutely wonderful memories

Amanda was such a thoughtful and caring person in ensuring we had all the information needed to to maximize our time at Blue Fin

She was very accommodating in allowing for our family to enjoy her absolutely beautiful home...Jason was extremely easy and efficient in guaranteeing any question was answered immediately

The home is absolutely INCREDIBLE...from the architecture (architect daughter took many notes and photos) to the furnishings...to the large gathering room and gourmet kitchen that allowed for plenty of room for all of us to enjoy meals and fun time....unbelievable views from porches and gigantic windows...master suites(3)...no arguing over choice as all were magnificent...kids bunk room was amazing in design and furnishings and provided all electronic needs for 5....kids absolutely had a blast...outdoor pool/spa and deck area /shower was so relaxing and conducive to chiliing in paradise

Oh...the beach in front of the house was secluded and offered all the wonderful beach exploring/games both kids and adults could possibly want in a beach

ISLAND PARADISE = .BLUE FIN BEACH HOUSE

Eureka

  • 5 of 5

Words cannot describe the vacation that was experienced at your beautiful beach home! For those looking to unwind, and disconnect from the grid, look no further, this is Eureka! Amanda has thought of everything, from a well thought out floor plan and furnishings, to tea towels, beach towels, bath towels, and toiletries! As a matter of fact, we miss having two dishwashers in our kitchen once we returned home, one isn't enough now after experiencing two in the Bluefin's kitchen! She spoiled us! Loved the abmience of the "evening lighting" throughout the upper floor! The sound system was wonderful also! The pool, hot tub and outdoor area is so relaxing and private. The children enjoyed every minute of this vacation. The bunk room was perfect for them!

As we pulled into the driveway, two turtles crossed the road as if to personally welcome us! I felt as if it was a "God Wink", this was nature at it's best! I could go on and on! Don't hesitate to book this beautiful vacation home, you will not be disappointed! Thank you Amanda and Co!
