Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: I am an English Physical Therapist and my American husband is a Strength and Conditioning Coach. We live in New York City. We got married on North Captiva in 2011. We love to escape the fast pace and noise of the city to the peace, beauty and nature of North Captiva. There are no cars, it is quiet, with beautiful sandy beaches, amazing sunsets, great fishing, wonderful long walks, fabulous swimming in the Gulf, and lots of interesting wildlife which we love to photograph. This is where we come to relax, unwind, and re-energise. Owning this house is a dream come true - an unspoiled, back to nature island.

Why the Owner Chose Captiva, FL, USA:
We first visited North Captiva in 2007 as we had friends living on the island. We fell in love with the island and then had the opportunity to actually purchase a home here - the minute we get on the ferry we leave all our stresses behind. We LOVE IT!!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our home is a very 'modern - one of a kind' beach house, which is exquisitely decorated with high end furniture, a well equipped kitchen (I love to cook so there is everything that one would need), beautiful bed linens and above all CLEAN!! The bath in the master bathroom is a great place to relax with a bubble bath and a glass of wine - sheer decadence!! Outside, the garden is well maintained and we often have dinner outside or just watch the world go by in our beautiful signature orange chairs. We love the views, the sunsets, and sunrises from the roof - which can be great for cocktail hour or the early morning cup of tea or coffee. The ability to do absolutely 'NOTHING' and not worry about it is a wonderful feeling!! Boat trips to nearby islands and dolphin watching is fun, as is fishing from the beach and shelling - have found fabulous shells and sand dollars. There are lots of photo opportunities of wildlife, sunsets and nature, and we absolutely love just BEING!! Just a minutes walk to the beautiful beach - and it is even more amazing at sunrise and sunset. Once you have experienced North Captiva you will never want to leave!!
