A Tiny Strip of Heaven – Captiva
There are many islands in the world that can be intriguing but very few that pack so much in such a small package. Captiva Island is only five miles long and ten square miles but has an endless array of amenities and conveniences. It is a small village with a big personality. It’s quiet and yet it has found prominence, partly through the famous people who have been islanders here (the most prominent being Theodore Roosevelt and the Lindbergh’s) partly by the travel writers who praise it, but mostly by the regular people who come here and love it so much they stay. They love the funky, laid-back way the island works. It has welcoming, down-home neighbors and offers conveniences and pleasures that meet any need. There are all of the things you expect on a sub-tropical island – beaches, fishing, sailing, marina services as well as tennis, golf, great restaurants and wonderful shops. The Wall Street Journal called it one of the top ten places for a second home. Real estate accommodations can be as grande or as simple as you want – a grande home on the beach or a simple one-bedroom villa. If you want a friendly, uncomplicated, “leave the shoes at home” kind of place, Captiva is the place for you.
Captiva Gulf Front Homes
Real estate on Captiva leans more toward waterfront property than most places. That, of course, is because it is a skinny island with long shorelines. While there are homes throughout the island many of them are on the shores of the Gulf of Mexico where you can stroll outside to a wonderful white sand beach and dig your toes in the sand or dip yourself in the gentle surf. The beaches of Captiva let you collect some of the most beautiful and colorful shells in the world or you can just sit and read or enjoy a short walk. These are the most romantic beaches in America according to Dr. Beach, Travel & Leisure Magazine and Travelocity. In the evening you may go out to the famous Mucky Duck restaurant and watch the stunning sunset while having a delicious meal. After dinner you can attend the theatre or visit the galleries or just sit and relish the quiet Captiva night. Let David Schuldenfrei know what you’d like on Captiva and he’ll make it happen.
