About the property

3 Bedroom 3 Bath On A Double Wide Lot Affording Much Privacy.

"Paradise Gardens" is located on the bridge less barrier island of North Captiva. It is a 20 minute boat ride from the mainland aboard Island Girl ferry or private charter. Our home is nestled into beautiful tropical gardens on a double lot offering tons of privacy. It is just a short stroll to the Gulf of Mexico where a sandy beach stretches over 3 miles, offering long walks and great shelling. There is something spectacular about a North Captiva sunset that feeds your soul. No cars, no traffic lights, and no paved roads, just barefoot, carefree living. Golf carts, bikes and feet are the modes of transportation. Pine Island Sound and the Gulf of Mexico offer world class fishing whether you book a charter with Captain Richie or fish from shore. Of the island' s 700 acres nearly two thirds is a protected state preserve and wildlife sanctuary. You are likely to see, manatees, gopher tortoises, bald eagles and if you are lucky, the reclusive florida bobcat! We are home to over 100 species of migratory birds and no venomous snakes! :)

Our home is 3 bedrooms, 3 baths with an open concept great room that opens on to a screened lanai with comfortable seating. The great room has a 60 inch tv with DirecTV satellite service. Landline phone and internet provided.

The well appointed home has everything you need to enjoy your paradise vacation including 4 seater golf cart and bicycles. You can even have your food bought and delivered by our caretakers Paula and Richie Price!

Enjoy the serenity of the courtyard pool with the sound of a beautiful waterfall flowing in the background. Relax around the tiki bar in the open air living area beneath the house. Take in the panoramic views from the crows nest atop the house. There is room to spread out in this island home.

Come, relax and enjoy!

I rent May through October

Fun, Friendly and Relaxing -all around great vibe!

  • 5 of 5

The property is ideal for a fun and relaxing trip to North Captiva. The pool and large garden give it a spacious feel and the "Island" details throughout the house give it such a fun vibe. Every amenity was provided, the beds were comfy, the surroundings were clean and one could feel the care the owners put into every aspect. Wonderful to deal with them and wonderful to have stayed at Paradise Garden!

Paradise Gardens

  • 5 of 5

Our family just returned from our eighth vacation on North Captiva Island and our second stay in the Paradise Gardens property. We are so happy to have found this home. It suits our family perfectly and allows our dog to travel with us. The house is well kept and always very clean. We no longer struggle to find a vacation home on the island – we are going to Paradise Gardens.

Perfect Spot in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 stayed at this home for our vacation and we loved it! The house was well maintained, gardens were beautiful, and the location was a just a short walk from the beach. We all thoroughly enjoyed our time on North Captiva and having the private pool for a cool swim after a day on the beach was fabulous! We especially enjoyed the starfish, sand dollars, shells and other wildlife that we saw each day during our walks on the beach and the sunsets were breathtaking!

Beautiful tropical beach home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time at this beautiful property! It's well maintained and the pictures are a true representation of the home. Take advantage of the grocery service offered by the caretakers! So nice to arrive and have the kitchen already stocked with your groceries - well worth the additional fee. Would definitely want to stay here if we visit the island again!

Premier North Captiva Rental Home

  • 5 of 5

We feel so fortunate to have found Paradise Gardens for our two-week getaway to North Captiva...and thankful Patrice is willing to share her beautiful home. Hers has to be one of the premier rental homes on the island. This is Patrice's home for six months out of the year, and I believe that has everything to do with the comfort, beauty and convenience of the home and the satisfaction of the guests. It is decorated to a T. The living/kitchen/dining area is open and spacious. We cooked most meals while there, and lacked for nothing in the way of utensils. Beds are comfy and bathrooms have lovely tile showers and countertops. Outside, it's always five o'clock at the tiki bar! So many relaxing spots beckon--from the hammock to the adirondack loveseat to the poolside lounges--it's hard to decide where to take a nap, curl up with a book or enjoy an adult beverage. And then there's the yard. It is stunning. Only wish I knew more about plants so I could have ID'd what was growing there. Patrice's caretakers, Paula and Richie, are the best! Paula did my grocery shopping and delivered and put away everything before we arrived. She met us at the dock and took us (and all our "stuff") to the house. She was our "go-to" person with questions and always responded promptly. Captain Richie (Adrenaline Fishing) took us out for two amazing fishing days that resulted in some great fresh-caught fish dinners. Look him up for some fun fishing or sight-seeing excursions.

We have been coming to North Captiva for more than thirty years. We love it for the seclusion--there were times when we saw no other person on the beach; for the beauty--lush green, turquoise seas, white beaches and Gulf sunsets never cease to amaze; and for the nature--we never tire of seeing the manatees, dolphins, sea turtle nests, fish and a host of song and shore birds. Newcomers must understand one doesn't come to NC for the night life. But daytime pursuits are endless! Also, to newcomers: don't miss the south end of North Captiva! A short walk through the "jungle" takes you to the island's nature preserve with its wide beaches, amazing shelling and quiet, quiet, quiet!

Thank you Patrice, Paula and Captain Richie! As a testament to our satisfaction, we have already booked our 2018 stay and are counting the days until our return.
