About the property


This North Captiva Island vacation home has been newly renovated and furnished in 2015. THE BEACH HOUSE is a relaxed, elegant 4 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom home with incredible waterfront views and shallow beach at your doorstep ready and waiting to provide the perfect setting for the best vacation ever.

THE BEACH HOUSE is set in a tropical island paradise. Located just 3 miles offshore, part of the Lee Island Coast Barrier Chain. From the moment you arrive, you will feel as if you have been whisked away to a distant, peaceful, quiet tropical setting. Remote and undiscovered, North Captiva Island is accessible only by water taxi, private boat or small plane. This private island community is reminiscent of old Florida. It is home to an expansive nature preserve and surrounded by natural beauty. Explore the island by golf cart on our sandy native trails. Here, you will find no cars, no crowds or paved roads. North Captiva Island offers just enough amenities to suite your family needs. We welcome you to enjoy a truly memorable experience where a slower, relaxed pace is the norm.

The home offers wonderfully appointed furnishings and has 2600 square feet under A/C with more than 4200 square feet of living space including open decks on both floors and covered veranda on the main level. It was professionally renovated and decorated from top to bottom and completed in May 2015. Most everything in THE BEACH HOUSE is brand new, built for casual island living, with one of the best unobstructed waterfront views on the island.

If you enjoy cooking, you will love the all new, well equipped kitchen with brand new appliances, utensils, dinnerware and lots of Quartz counter space. The home has 3 flat screen TV's with Satellite Dish-TV and High Speed Wi-Fi. There is plenty of room to stretch out in the newly furnished living room, dining room and bedrooms. An expansive wrap around veranda, 2 roof level decks with sunrise and sunset views, outdoor shower and amazing large beach where dolphins play are waiting for your exclusive use. The sleeping arrangements are top notch accommodating 8 people with 1 extra large master bedroom with King bed and en-suite bath, 2 guest bedrooms each with Queen beds both with their own private en-suite baths and access to the outside decks, a 4th loft bedroom with twin beds as well as 2 Pack N Play's for babies. The main floor laundry room is equipped with a front load washer and dryer with a supply of laundry detergent as well as a sink for cleaning those treasures found on the beach.

THE BEACH HOUSE is a perfect venue for Weddings, Anniversaries, Romantic Getaways or a Family Vacation.

You won't want to leave this wonderful retreat.

About Shirley

Hi, we are Al & Shirley and reside in Toronto Canada. We purchased our first Florida vacation home in 2007 in Cape Coral and have been enjoying it with our family and friends ever since. In the summer of 2014 we took a trip to North Captiva Island and were hooked on its beauty and purchased this property which we lovingly renovated.

Shirley purchased this house in 2014

Why Shirley chose Captiva

Although it needed a lot of renovating, we chose this property for the location. Sitting on its own private beachfront was breathtaking and we saw the potential to make it something special.

Great waterside retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay enjoying the dolphins daily and even a manatee one morning. The house was clean, beatifully decorated and well equipped. The water was very calm for the kids to swim although they were sad not to have a pool. We spent our days on the beach, golf carting around the island, enjoying queenie's ice cream and family time. Now back to reality!

Owner's Response: THE BEACH HOUSE really is an escape! From exploring the Island, enjoying the wildlife and even an old fashion ice cream, one can relax and get away from the norm for a short while. We were happy to hear your family enjoyed spending time there. We hope to have you back again in future. Shirley & Al - Home Owners

Great house in an amazing location

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to North Captiva and we loved it! The owners and property manager were very helpful and accommodating. The house was nice, spacious, and had amazing views. Having the beach right outside the door was very convenient and we had everything we needed to have a great vacation.

Excellent Family Friendly Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We traveled together with our family and family friends. The house was fully equipped with everything we needed. Was nestled in a perfect spot on the island, giving us beautiful views of the ocean! We had a blast and I am certain this vacation created a special memory for our kids. We will definitely carry the magic of the island with us! Thanks for an amazing stay!!

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful vacation at THE BEACH HOUSE. It is as nice as the pictures and more. We lounged on the back deck taking in the scenic views and watching dolphins.

Very relaxing and fun. We also explored the island on the golf cart, watched sunsets and met

nice and friendly people everywhere (good people at Barnacle Phil's and food is very good). Our host (the owners)made our preparations easy. Thanks S. We'll be back. No cars, lots of fish.

Wonderful place to unwind

  • 5 of 5

This home is very nice. Tastefully remodeled and comfortable. But you don't stay here for the house. The location is incredible. Peaceful and relaxing with great views over calm, dolphin-filled waters.

Fantastic Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at The Beach House for a week. Shirley was so accommodating and responded to all of our needs. We loved this Island Home. It was very spacious, clean and decorated to perfection! We enjoyed the beauty of the birds and dolphins. We had a Heron visit us daily- we of course named him Fred! It was very private and great for kids! The Island is very special and we loved cruising around in the golf carts, kayaking, homemade ice cream from Queenie (Barnacles) the sunsets and sunrises and the beautiful gift of nature that it offers. We will be back and can't say enough good things about The Beach House!
