About Sandy Cooper
The Cooper family loves enjoying North Captiva with friends and family. They designed and built Sea Urchins with this in mind and incorporated their favorite features into the house. When they are not busy working on island projects, Charlie flies 777s for United Airlines, Mike and Jesse attend University of Florida, Zac attends Fort Myers High and Sandy lends support services.
Sandy Cooper purchased this house in 2014
Why Sandy Cooper chose North Captiva
Sea Urchins is located on over an acre of land. More than half of the property is set aside as preserve area, that was restored to native vegetation when we prepared our homesite. We carefully constructed a boat dock along the Safety Harbor, and now can accommodate boats for our guests. As part of of State permitting we were required to elevate our house on pilings over 17 feet above sea level. The result is a breathtaking views of Pine Island Sound and the surrounding Charlotte Harbor Aquatic Preserve. Safety Harbor, the Gulf of Mexico, Captiva Pass, Cayo Costa Island, Cabbage Key, Use, and the historic fishing shacks of Pine Island Sound can all be viewed from the house. Sea Urchins is located adjacent to Salty Approach, the grass airstrip, and typically, once or twice a day small airplanes land or takeoff. Because of the house orientation, landing aircraft pass right by the porches--it is thrill to watch! The waters right in front of the runway are a favorite hangout for dolphin families and they are sighted daily playing and fishing along the beach. Occasional pods of manatees are also sighted along the shore and off the dock in Safety Harbor. Shorebirds abound and ospreys and pelicans drift past the house porches on the sea breezes. Sea Urchins is like no other property on the North Captiva or anywhere else--we look forward to sharing it with you!
