We love the island and the escape it provides. We hope others will discover the ability to 'leave it all behind' as we do with each visit. Our desire is for others to enjoy our island escape, 'Sea Turtle' nest. Leo and Chris reside outside of Tampa where Chris is a nurse and the family stays busy with adult daughters and rediscovering childhood through our 8 year old son.
Chris purchased this Townhome in 2012
Why Chris chose Jose's Hideaway
Perfectly located at the Safety Harbor wharf to make 'moving in' a breeze. Climb out of your boat or the ferry and you are 'home'.
What makes this Townhome unique
Our completely renovated home has the most spacious kitchen of all the town homes and includes all the upgrades throughout the house. Watch the sunrise over the harbor from your lanai or golf cart to the beach for the best sunsets ever!

The condo was perfect for my husband and I and two teenage daughters. It was convenient to the boat dock. It was a quiet neighborhood and the neighbors were friendly. The owners were very responsive when I contacted them via email. Amenities were adequate.
The Sea Turtle truly exceeded our expectations!!! The beauty of the island is amazing! Communication from the owner at all times to ensure we truly had a flawless vacation. The townhouse is so welcoming the second you step off the water taxi. We had a fabulous getaway & already know we will be back! Thank you Chris & Leo!
We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay and made great memories. It is our pleasure to share Sea Turtle so others can enjoy the magic of the island in the comfort of our home away from home. You are welcome back, hope to "sea" you soon.
Excelente, well maintained, good locación, nice view.
North Captiva is an extraordinary expirience, never mind how much you have traveled. Kids and ourselves have enjoyed a lot. Provoke to come back.
Thank you for your review. The island and Sea Turtle are perfect for big kids and little ones alike! I am so glad our home met your expectations and the island proved (once again) to bring magical moments and great memories! Happy to have you back!
Another amazing rental from chris and Leo!!!
We love the sea turtle!! This was my fourth time renting from chris and Leo, they are amazing hosts. It is super clean, amazing location, very well stocked kitchen, just a really great place to get away. I can't wait to come back. Thank you so much for offering this little piece of paradise.
Great, awesome, super relaxing and low key. Absolutely love the island and the property!
Would totally stay on this island and at this property again. Only complaints where that there is no water pressure in the showers, the water is really bad (which we knew ahead of time). Water smells like sulfur and is undrinkable. If staying here just make sure you buy a lot of water. Overall property was clean and well maintained. Peopke on island very welcoming and helpful. Beaches amazing! Property is located steps away from ferry dock which is super convenient.
House was wonderful! Beaches beautuful!
Thank you for taking the time to review. We strive to meet the needs of our guests and we are so happy that you enjoyed Sea Turtle and the island. You are always welcome to return!
North Captiva is a barrier island without bridges to access it. Boat charter/ferry services are available. No cars, no traffic....only golf carts and bikes are on the sandy trails.
