The first level of Manatee Haven has four bedrooms, two kings, one queen and two twins, in addition to two full baths. Each of the bedrooms is fully tiled and beautifully appointed with island themes. DirecTV (with free Netflix) is available in the Great room, and in all four bedrooms.

A dining area is off the kitchen and has a full glass/wood table with extensions and six chairs.

Car: Not Necessary

Manatee Haven is located on a barrier island North Captiva Island. You take a public water-taxi from Pineland Marina on Pine Island, Florida. It takes 25 minutes to get to the island. You use a golf cart to get around the island. There are three restaurants and one snack bar/grocery store. The beach is less than a minute ride by golf cart. The island is very peaceful and quiet as there are no large condo complexes allowed, only single family homes. If you are looking to kick back and relax you have come to the right place.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: We are an active couple with two beautiful kids from Lakeway, Texas. We are “water babies” and love to live and relax around lakes and the ocean. We stumbled across the magical island of North Captiva back in 2010 when planning a vacation. We fell in love with the peace and tranquility of the island. It is a true getaway from the fast paced lifestyle of the mainland. The island allows us a place to get away with our kids and create lifelong memories with each other. In 2012 we discovered Manatee Haven, a truly exceptional home on North Captiva. We loved Manatee Haven so much we kept coming back year after year, and then were blessed to be able to purchase Manatee Haven from the original owners, Kay and Jake Stieger. Kay and Jake built Manatee Haven in 2002 and chose North Captiva Island because of its seclusion, privacy and relaxing atmosphere. They have taken great care of their island home ever since. The reviews of the house speak volumes to the meticulous cleaning and upkeep the Stiegers have put into it for 14 years. We have kept all the furnishings, décor and amenities exactly the same as Kay left them. When you see Manatee Haven you will see it’s not just a house, it’s a home – a vacation home where you will feel comfortable and relaxed with any amenity you need.

Why the Owner Chose Captiva, FL, USA:
We purchased Manatee Haven and chose North Captiva Island because of its seclusion, privacy and relaxing atmosphere.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Manatee Haven is unique in that when you enter the home it is completely under a 3-story screen enclosure on a large deck (3,200 sq. ft) with elevator, a 33 ft. long and 15 ft. wide heated swimming pool, hot-tub, enclosed hot & cold water shower, small refrigerator, swimming pool games and toys and plenty of outdoor furniture to relax and enjoy yourself. This enclosure keeps the bugs out and no sunscreen lotion would be necessary.
