Overview

About the property

1200 sq ft Cottage Apartment 2 Bed / 1 Bath

IT'S A SHORE THING........located just 100 ft from a 4 mile stretch of white sand beach, Blue Mango offers a very private newly renovated apartment nestled in the palms. This is a 1200 sq ft apartment plus private pool and abundant decks. Enjoy the indoor river- stone shower, or the very large outdoor hot/cold shower overlooking tropical lush surroundings. French doors in each bedroom open onto the a large, private deck . The kitchen has granite counter tops and new appliances with outdoor Weber gas BBQ.

WE HAVE SAND IN THE EYES, AND THE EARS AND THE NOSE AND SAND IN THE HAIR, AND SAND BETWEEN THE TOES......WELCOME TO THE ISLAND.

The best thing about North Captiva is that it is good for your soul; where world-class fishing, boating, shelling, and sunsets await you. North Captiva is a true barrier island and is separated from the mainland by a 20-minute boat ride. No cars are allowed on the island and transportation is by golf cart or walking. Guests at the beach house enjoy a private pool, and a four person golf cart, ,

WE BROUGHT A TOWEL FOR SITTING ON, OUR LUNCH WAS IN A BOX - THE SAND WAS WARM, WE DIDN'T WEAR HATS OR SHOES OR SOCKS......WELCOME TO 'BLUE MANGO'.

Most of the island is a wildlife sanctuary and our beach is an unbroken ribbon of white sand where some of the best shelling in North America is to be found.

Enjoy the world's best Tarpon and Snook fishing. Fire up the barbecue and cook your catch under the stars, or enjoy one of the Islands fine restaurants.

Exploring is a favorite past time, try the uninhabited island of Cayo Costa, have lunch at Cabbage Key (a turn-of-the-century hotel), or shop on Sanibel or Boca Grande. Find your own personal little bit of paradise, there is lots out there.

Experience a vacation where island beauty and relaxation will surround you, where lazing in the hammock under the palms, or toasting the magnificent sunsets will awaken and revitalize you.

WAVES COME CURLING UP THE BEACH, WE WADED IT WAS FUN - OUR SANDWICHES WERE DIFFERENT KINDS, I DROPPED MY JELLY ONE!

COME VISIT US ON NORTH CAPTIVA, A TRULY CAPTIVATING ISLAND.

About Diane Porter

We both grew up in a busy city and were fortunate to own a family island cottage and enjoyed being on and around the water all summer. So when we discovered North Captiva we knew immediately is was for us. It was the island life we could continue to enjoy during the winter or any other part of the year. John is a boating enthusiast and also loves to restore boats.....I just love being out on the water. We have truly enjoyed our years on this island.....how lucky to have found it!

Diane Porter purchased this apartment in 1999

Why Diane Porter chose Florida

We purchased our home on North Captiva in 1999 after spending many years visiting Sanibel Island . We opted for something with less traffic and we got it.......no cars are on the island only golf cars, no hotels or motels just 300 private beach homes. We were also looking for a good beach offering safe swimming and a home with location and 'good bones' to work with. Blue Mango came into our lives .

What makes this apartment unique

Location, location all the way. Steps to the best part of the beach on the island. Near Boats and Fun where you can charter a fishing trip, rent a boat, pwc, kayak, bike, or paddle board.. Close to ' The Boat House' & Mango's restaurants and a outdoor fun island bar. All the activies are located near Blue Mango.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The Blue Mango was a beautiful and relaxing getaway that our family needed. The owners were so friendly and welcoming and we can't wait to go again!

Didn't Want to Leave!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very memorable vacation stay at Blue Mango on North Captiva! Everything about our rental, the area, and the amenities was just as described. John and Diane are excellent hosts, who ensured we were well prepared for our tasks of ordering and picking up groceries ahead of time, arranging for transportation to and from the airport and planning of our stay.

Blue Mango has a very vintage, cottage-like feel with many comforts to take advantage of. Our favorites were the wonderful salt water pool, the roomy front porch, walk in shower to name a few.

Blue Mango and this island is a must to experience!

Amazing property, amazing hosts!

  • 5 of 5

John and Diane have created a beautiful, well appointed, relaxing place to kick back on vacation. Blue Mango exceeds expectations, so much so that this was our second time back and we're already making plans to return again soon. The beach cottage decor, refreshing pool, hang out spaces on the porches and pool deck, proximity to the beach, and the laid back vibe of North Captiva Island - the perfect recipe for a truly unforgettable vacation! Thanks John & Diane for your hospitality!

Magic

  • 5 of 5

We love our vacations. And this one is in the top tier. Everything about the island is magical icluding Blue Mango. You will want for nothing. It is warm, whimsical and inviting...as are Diane and John, the owners. We felt Blue Mango was the best spot on the island. There is not another place close to being like it there. And what a porch! We will definitely return.....wonderful memories! Thanks John and Diane :)

Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I chose Blue Mango for our vacation with the hopes of relaxing and recharging our batteries. Mission accomplished! It was truly one of the most relaxing vacations we’ve taken. The owners, John & Diane, sincerely want you to enjoy your stay and it is apparent the moment they greet you at the ferry with their warm smiles. The home is well equipped with everything you could possibly need and more. The picnic table by the pool was the perfect spot to enjoy all of our meals. We loved our daily tours of the island in the golf cart that was provided. We enjoyed seeing eagles, egrets, ospreys, gopher tortoises, manatees and dolphins. A nap in the hammock will make you rethink going home at the end of your stay. John & Diane, thank you for all the hospitality and for the use of your beautiful home. We look forward to returning next year!

Beautiful home with fantastic hosts

  • 5 of 5

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our week at Blue Mango and wish we could have stayed longer! The home was beautiful and very comfortable. Our kids particularly enjoyed the pool and hammock when we were not hunting for shells, fishing, building sandcastles, and swimming at the beach. We felt completely at home and could not have asked for a more relaxing and enjoyable trip. While John and Diane like to give their guests privacy, we enjoyed the time they spent talking with us and sharing stories about their home and the island. Even our son, who is very shy and does not warm up to people easily, cannot stop talking about John and Diane and how much he liked them! We can't wait to head back to Blue Mango with our family hopefully in the near future.
