fine stores for your other shopping needs. Among the many stores are
Burdines and J.C. Penny. Nearby shopping areas include Publix, Sears,
K-Mart, Wal-Mart, Walgreen's Drugs and many other stores.
RECREATION
Beaches - North Captiva is bordered on both the Bay and Gulf by some
of the world's most beautiful white sand beaches. The pristine beaches
show off the turquoise blue ocean and bay, which are free of pollution
and comparable to the finest Caribbean beaches.
Wildlife - Since most of the Island is a Government Wildlife
Sanctuary, you live amongst Florida's sea life with flocks of sea
birds, many of which are now rare or extinct to the mainland. Your
long beach walks take you into the heart of this extraordinary coastal
ecosystem with its remarkable diversity of sea life. Many of Florida's
beaches were like this 100 years ago.
Shelling - You will find the best shelling on Florida's west coast on
North Captive Island. Unlike heavily-combed Sanibel beaches. North
Captiva beaches present an unsurpassed abundance of shells which are
consistently renewed by the ocean current along the Island.
Fishing - It is no surprise that many of the Island's inhabitants,
including humans, birds, and fish, constantly focus on the island
waters. Some of the West Coast's best fishing is directly off the
islands beaches and docks. Sports fisherman seek their quarry in the
waters immediately offshore. You can acquire rental boats, fishing
charters, sea kayaks for your recreational fishing and touring needs.
The Seawatch dock on the edge of a deep channel is one of the best
fishing locations on the Island.
Hiking - The northern end of the Island is honeycombed with miles of
narrow shell roads both inland and along the beach just minutes from
your rental -- perfect for day hiking. The Wildlife Sanctuary is
bordered on the Gulf & Pine Island Sound by three miles of pristine
white sand beaches draped by pines and palms.
Tennis - Safety Harbor Club offers modern courts to members and those
renting Seawatch.
Swimming - The ocean and bay are unbeatable, along with a heated
swimming pool at the Safety Harbor Club located only minutes away from
Seawatch. Be cautious of currents around the Island.
Golf - Alden Pines is an 18 hole golf course at
reasonable fees (Par 71) located two minutes from Pineland Marina at
14261 Clubhouse Drive, Bokelia, Florida 33922. It's open to the public
and reachable by regularly scheduled water taxi or charter service
direct to Pineland Marina's North Captiva departure location. Alden
Pines will pick you up and return you to Pineland Marina by golf cart
at no extra charge.
Dining - Seawatch guests generally have four restaurants available to
them. All the restaurants offer fish and seafood (some gourmet) along
with steaks and other turf items from inexpensive but delicious
lunches to moderately priced dinners. Also you can stop in for a glass
of beer or wine at one of the Island's watering holes, where you can
catch up on Island folklore and gossip.

traveler reviews for this north captiva island house rental

My New Home Away From Home!

Review submitted: January 14, 2014   Date of arrival: July 27, 2013

We have one more day at Seawatch, so I thought we would write a review now, while relaxing on the boat dock, instead of trying to remember when I finally get home. First off the owner gave us a great tip, mail our grocery list to the local Publix ahead of time so that it can be picked up on the way to the marina from the airport. Great tip, use it.


If you are looking for a home away from home this is the place. We have been here for 6 days and have enjoyed every minute. The kitchen is stocked, furniture is clean and in good condition. We have eaten breakfast and lunch on the beach everyday. We have eaten at Barnacle Phil's and the Over the Waterfront restaurant, both were delicious, but bringing groceries saved us a ton of money.


We walked several times to the nature reserve to check out the local flora and fauna. It is about a 25 minute walk, but it was great taking in the scenery along the way. We did walk to the Safety Harbor Club several times as well to check out the boats and the pool. The beach at the house is incredible, living so far inland at home means I don't get to see the ocean much, let alone caribbean waters, so having it right at my doorstep is amazing. They have a great amount of info on their website that suggests activities and outlines available equipment to make your own adventure. It was good knowing about the bicycles and sea kayaks in addition to the golf cart provided with the rental.


As I said before the house has some fun toys to use while at the house: bicycles, sea kayaks, golf carts, fishing rods… my husband convinced me to try my hand at fishing off the deep water dock and I managed to catch dinner. I was beaming!


The only small negative was not being able to open the bayside windows. But we just as easily utilized the screened porch, master bedroom balcony, and the roof to enjoy the outside weather so it wasn't a huge deal. Being outside to watch the sun rise over the water every morning was absolutely breath taking, I can't wait to do it again!


Thanks for a great trip and we will be back when both kids can go diving.

Perfect place for 2 families

Review submitted: July 17, 2014   Date of arrival: July 5, 2014

Seawatch was a PERFECT place for our 2 young families.

On arrival day, we were greeted by the house manager, James, who was there to prep the house and give us an island tour on the golf cart. We've stayed at many luxurious rentals before, but we'd never once been greeted by an actual person when we arrived. It was truly a nice, welcoming touch and set the tone for a wonderful week.

The house layout itself could not have been more perfect for our families. There is one master and another bedroom on the main floor, and a master and another bedroom on the floor above. It was ideal for our 2 families, as we have small children, and we each had close access to our kids at night, while still having our own "family" space. The kitchen is huge and worked great for meal prep. We rarely even noticed the 4 children under 5 years old running underfoot. :)

We also loved that the floors are tile (rather than carpet), so we knew they were clean.

Seawatch's "backyard" with both a beach and a dock was wonderful for us, since we brought our boat. It was easy to tie up, and the fishing off the dock was incredible. We saw dolphins almost constantly from Seawatch (no exaggeration!), to the point that when we'd tell the kids, "Look, dolphins!" they weren't even impressed by the 2nd day. :)

A fantastic house, location and once-in-a-lifetime experience on North Captiva!

Loved Seawatch

Review submitted: May 1, 2014   Date of arrival: April 26, 2014

This is our first time on North Captiva Island and we loved it. The dolphins play right in front of the house off the dock. We caught a bunch of fish right off the dock and the view is amazing. Jeff, the owner was very responsive to all of my questions - either by phone or email. The house sits right on the beach and is very private. The kitchen has everything you need to feed a large crowd with a huge family room for gathering. I recommend this house to anyone and will try to come back myself!!

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, tourists without a car, romantic getaway
