"Winterhaven"

4550 Oyster Shell Drive

North Captiva Island, Florida

NORTH CAPTIVA ISLAND

Thank you for inquiring about "Winterhaven" bounded by the Gulf of

Mexico on one side and Pine Island Sound on the other. We are on a

barrier island just west of Fort Myers, Florida. We're 500 acres of

state wildlife preserve ... offering world renown shelling,

subtropical foliage and trees, a look at over 100 species of

migrating nesting birds as well as endangered marine life.

Dolphins

and manatee play off our shores on this private island. We have

neither public boat docks or public facilities. There are no bridges

to connect us to the mainland. We are a vanishing breed, one of the

last true out islands in the United States. We have 4 miles of the

most beautiful, serene beaches to be found anywhere on this earth.

THE WINTERHAVEN

Just seconds from the beach, our fully-furnished home offers unique

inverted style living. The first floor, set on top of 10 foot

pilings

has 2 bedrooms, 2 screened-in porches and 2 baths. On the second

floor you will find a spacious living and dining area with cathedral

ceiling. An entire wall made up of sliding glass doors and windows

facing the Gulf not only gives you a spectacular view of the

water and those beautiful sunsets but also allows access to an

expansive sun deck.

maker, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, blender, iron and ironing

One of the beautiful features of this island is that no motor

vehicles are allowed. Transportation on the island is an

electric golf cart. Of course, you can always use the oldest

form

of transportation - foot power.

GETTING TO NORTH CAPTIVA

Fly into Fort Myers ... take a cab or rent a car to Pineland Marina

on Pine Island. Before you leave home call the management company.

Tell them what time your plane arrives and they will tell you where

to

stop for provisions on the way to the water taxi. At the dock you

will be greeted by a representative of the

management company who will transport your luggage and

provisions to the house.

WHAT ABOUT FOOD?

Our home has a fully equipped kitchen. Best to bring your own

provisions ... cook at home ... life is casual. There are 3

restaurants on the island that offer casual dining for breakfast,

lunch and dinner and a general store for necessities. For your

convenience, prior to your arrival, you may have our house

stocked with your provisions for a nominal fee.

ARE THERE MEDICAL FACILITIES?

We are tied to the mainland by Med-Vac.Air service to the nearest

medical facility in about 20 minutes from call.

courts, clubhouse, snack bar, bird watching towers and private

nearby islands for dining, shopping and golfing. Boat rental

CARE OF OUR HOUSE

We ask that you treat our house gently. Should anything go wrong,

call the management office. They are available 24 hours a day.

and they will tend to the problem. We do not provide daily maid
