About

We just finished renovations on this amazing, beachfront home! The house is named "Windows on the Water" because of the spectacular wall of windows facing a pristine, white sandy beach and Captiva Pass.
Relax inside or outside on your very own beach, and enjoy views of Cayo Costa Island, sailboats and wildlife including pelicans, manatees and more! |
| 3 bedrooms, 3 full baths. WOW offers two master suites, each with a king bed and ensuite full bathroom.
The third bedroom has 2 low-rise bunk beds, perfect for young children and teens. The third full bathroom with a bathtub/shower is just off the bunk room. The beds are outfitted with Lilly Pulitzer duvets, fitting with the island vibe! We've provided enough extra, white cotton blankets for everyone, should they prefer a lighter cover. | | Windows on the Water is located on the northern tip of the island called Rum Point. We are on the beach and also adjacent to 4 acres of private, undeveloped land which makes our home feel peaceful and secluded. |
North Captiva has no cars, only sandy trails and golf carts available for your rental! There are 3 restaurants, the island club, and public beaches. However with your own private beach you probably won't feel the need to leave the house! | | We provide beach chairs and lounges, sun umbrellas, bikes and games at our home. The newly renovated house is outfitted with stainless steel appliances, Wi-fi, 4 wall-mounted flat screen televisions, and a full size washer & dryer. There is a propane grill outside for your use. | | North Captiva island is perfect for you if you're looking for a one of a kind experience. This is a special island that can be accessed only by boat or plane. There are 4 bars/restaurants, a lively pool bar & grill, convenience store, guided fishing and boating tours, gift shop, boat rentals, grocery deliveries, and more. | | Renting a beachfront home offers you so much more than an amazing view, you will have that extra privacy and convenience of having your very own beach. You can unplug (or unplug your kids!), enjoy the beach, and take a walk on one of the nature trails in the Federal Wildlife Preserve. | | When you book this house, you and your family will have access to the North Captiva Island Club Resort with use of club amenities including: 2 heated pools, a hot tub, tennis court, half basketball court, kayaks, bikes, and up to 4 beach chairs that you keep until the end of your stay. There are 4 restaurants on the island: Mangos Pool Bar, Boathouse, Over the Waterfront, & Barnacle Phil's. | | Please email with any questions. We would love to have you stay!

Amazing Views Great Home

May 2021

Overall
5

This home is amazing and the property owner was very prompt in their communication with us! I could tell from the moment we arrived that the property had the comfort and pleasure of the guests in mind. The view from inside the house and the proximity to the water is just fantastic! We saw plenty of dolphins, manatees, birds and even a few sting rays all from the living room windows! We really enjoyed the location of the house, as even on the warm days you could lounge under the house in the shade and catch the lovely breeze and enjoy the water. There was plenty of outdoor furniture for all of the guests. The kitchen is very well stocked and laid out nicely (it even had corn skewers!), so you don't feel crowded with multiple people in the room. All of the appliances were in great condition. It has a water filter so you can refill your water bottles. The dining room table comfortably seats the number of guests that the house can sleep. You are able to adjust the thermostat to a comfortable temperature while you are inside, which was very nice. We didn't abuse the situation, but were thankful to enjoy a home that was 71 - 72 degrees while we were sleeping. The beds/pillows were very comfortable. There were plenty of paper towels, toliet paper, cleaning products, etc. It is one of the few homes we have stayed in that I can honestly say we never felt we were in danger of running out of supplies. We rented our golf cart from Boats and Fun and it was very nice. It is located close to the NCIC ferry dock so it was an easy walk to run over and grab it. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us! We definitely plan to return!

We were instantly in love with this house. We arrived on our golf cart to an amazing sunset, 8 dolphins, and beach full of shells. This property is way better than described. The house was so clean and Wendy was so helpful. She sent out an email with all the instructions for arrival and departure, food delivery, tips to the island and recommendations. My family (my husband, 4 y.o., 2y.o. and myself) along with another family with a 4 y.o. stayed on the property. There was plenty of space and we made memories to last a life time. A few tips if you do travel here: kids need water shoes for the shells on the beach can be sharp, the sun is hot with limited shade at the beach so bring a beach umbrella and you will need to pack a cooler (those are the only two items not at the house). Overall, I would recommend anyone wanting to enjoy the sun and saltwater in an unforgettable location to stay at W.O.W! xoxo

The name says it all!

The surf literally disappears from view under your feet while you are staring at the ocean through 7 floor to ceiling windows in the living room! This was our second stay in N Captiva, but our first at a beachfront home. And while all properties are just a short walk or gulf cart ride to the beach, what we learned to appreciate with this property is that you can enjoy the beach during your downtime! Instead of making a big to do about packing up and heading to the beach, the kids literally run out the door to play in the surf and you can watch them from one of the many supplied beach chairs, the charming hammock in the shade or from your living room couch! Highly recommended for anyone looking for quality R&R for their vacation. You literally never have to leave the home to have an amazing time. The home is tastefully remodeled well appointed with furnishings and stuff for fun. We got a lot of use out of the many bikes in the shed instead of having to go check one out and back in at the club like the last home we stayed in. Would definitely stay here again. Only hiccup was that we didn't set up our water taxi through the company managing the property so we had some logistical issues, so ask Wendy (the owner) first before setting all that up. She was very helpful anytime we had questions.

Wonderful Stay

We had the best 8 days ever with family. Everything met or exceeded our expectations. The kitchen was amazing and being right on the beach was the best. Sunset were spectacular. Wendy was so easy to work with and her communication book was so helpful. We will definitely be back.

If you attracted to this property, as we were, just by looking at the photographs. you will be even more impressed when you see it in person. If you have ever wanted to stay right on and sometimes seemingly over the water, then this is the place. The home is clean and fresh and tastefully decorated. If you are a foodie, the kitchen well equipped and spacious. The bedrooms and bathrooms are clean bright and welcoming with an understated nod to Lily Pulitzer. With windows located above the bed. It's un unexpected treat to fall asleep and wake up to the sound of the small lapping Gulf waves. The dining - living room is walled by the namesake windows on the water and those windows afford an expansive view of a sparking clean sea--reminiscent of a view from a cruise ship stateroom -- only better. Below the house, is a deck with grill and picnic table for al fresco dining. For the beach, there are four upright and four lounge chairs, and a hammock. Also, there is an enclosed outdoor shower and foot shower at the base of the deck stairs to help keep the beach sand off of the beautiful flooring throughout the house. The house is situated on the north tip of the island which means the coastline bends backward on either side of the house which affords more privacy than houses located on straight part of the coast. The beaches are rocking with shells and you can walk over a mile, possibly two, southward to a state park. This house just the place needed to rest and recoup during this pandemic. Wendy, the house is welcoming and very helpful with navigating the trip to the island to ensure your stay is relaxing. We hope to be back.

This house is fantastic!

Property was well represented, Wendy was super to work with. She went the extra mile for us a couple of times during our stay and was super responsive. A local there told us this property was “the best small house on the island”, and we agree wholeheartedly!!!! Would definitely love to come back to North Captiva, and would only stay at Windows on the Water! This house is FANTASTIC!

The location was amazing!

The location was amazing. If you like the ocean and nature this is the perfect place. You have your own white sandy beach with sea shells. You can watch the dolphins and birds right from the living room. The house is updated, clean and a perfect 3 bedroom beachfront house. This kitchen has everything you would need to cook meals.

Our stay at this lovely home was perfect for our family vacation.

Our stay at this lovely home was perfect for our family vacation. There are many beautiful properties on this island but I don't know how any of them could compare to the view we had each day of the water, weather, marine life and the sky. With such large windows in the main room, you felt as if you were on a large house boat on the water. The house was very clean and completely stocked with whatever you needed. We made use of the grill, lounged in the hammock, took walks each evening at sunset, played ping pong, rode the bikes, drove the golf cart to explore the rest of the island and get ice cream several nights. The week we were there, several storms came in the evenings, but getting to watch the storms from the main room was spectacular! We saw dolphins almost daily, as well as manatees that always came up close to the water's edge. The first day we saw 3 giant manta rays! My husband did see a shark early one morning but it was a small one and not too close to the beach. I will say that if small kids were to visit and get in the water, an adult would need to be with them because the current seemed a bit strong at times. But overall, a wonderful vacation that was packed with lasting great memories. We would love to go back!!

Simply Outstanding...

We did have a stay planned at St. Regis, but due to COVID wanted to stay somewhere more secluded and not in a hotel. This property is an absolute dream...clean, modern, updated and an amazing owner. The house is right on the beach and secluded away from others; along being stocked with quality products to ensure it is kept in pristine condition. Highly recommend!

We can't wait to return again!! Wendy was very responsive to all of our questions and requests which made for an enjoyable experience.

We absolutely loved staying at WOW! We had the most relaxing week and it was heaven to stay right on the water in such a beautiful house. Wendy was fantastic to work with, the NCIC staff were also amazing throughout our stay. While we mostly stuck to ourselves (hello, private beach!) it was always fun to stop at Barnacles for ice cream and drinks once or twice. This house was absolutely everything you could need for a weeks stay, it is our favorite house we've stayed at on the island so far! Well stocked, nice new finished and comfy beds- perfection! We enjoyed watching the dolphins and manatees swim by every day, fishing from the each and watching the fisherman catch huge fish right in front of our beach. We also spent time shelling, swimming, and playing games. Out 17 year old son had a fabulous time being directly on the beach. Book this house, you will not regret it! We will be staying here again on our next visit!

WOW is a wonderful house. The pictures are very accurate, the home is well decorated and in great shape. One of if best features is its proximity to the beach, where there were frequent sightings of dolphin, manatees and eagle rays. The house is well appointed with comfortable beds, linens, and plentiful beach towels. It also has a cook friendly kitchen that has everything you need in multiples. The grill is like new and was clean and ready to go when we needed it.There are lots of extras that you don’t always find in a rental, like a Dyson vacuum to keep the sand at bay, a ninja blender, USB ports on many of the outlets, and beach toys and games in good condition.Wendy was great and took care of anything that we needed. We hope to return soon.Published Jul 6, 2020 VRBO

The location is everything. It gave us an international Island feel without having to leave the country. Located at the northern tip of the island with our own private beach, it allowed us to see the sunrise and sunset each day as well as countless sea creatures. The huge windows are so close to the blue waters that it made it seem like the house was actually hovering above the water. The beautiful exterior views matched the interior views as well. Each room of the house is gorgeous, clean, and modern looking. Overall it was such a beautiful and well kept house and the managers were super helpful and accommodating. It was an amazing vacation!!Published Jun 30, 2020 VRBO
