Sea N Stars comes with a golf cart, covered parking and outdoor shower, perfect for rinsing off after a day at the beach. We provide beach chairs, umbrellas, towels, coolers and toys. Also available, at no additional charge to your rental, is a North Captiva Island Club membership. The Club features two restaurants, two pools, hot tub, basketball court, tennis courts, playground, and kayaks for your use.

You have to take a ferry to the Island (no cars). Secure overnight parking is available at the ferry. The ferry and parking fees are not included in the rental.
The caretakers will meet you at the dock, provide you with keys and drive you to the home while the Island Club ferry service transports your luggage and groceries to the home. There is not a grocery store on the Island - you will get your groceries on the mainland before going over on the ferry. We help you understand & plan for your week in paradise!
About North Captiva:
North Captiva is an un-bridged Island 7 miles off the coast of Ft. Myers in Southwest Florida. Fly into the Ft Myers Airport “RSW.” The Island can only be accessed by boat or small private plane with privileges at the airstrip. No gas vehicles are allowed, as the only mode of transportation on the island is by golf cart, bike or foot. This Island is not connected to Captiva and Sanibel.
The island is populated by private homes, and the remaining 2/3 of the Island is undeveloped state land great for hiking, discovering sand dollars or sun bathing on a deserted pristine piece of sand. Due to the remote nature of the Island, many forms of wildlife are present including several protected species. The beaches are white sand and feature some of the best shelling in the United States. North Captiva feels like your own private island where, on many occasions, you might be the only one on one of the finest stretches of beach in Florida.
