The Jewel of the Gulf – Captiva
Captiva is an island jewel set in the sub-tropical waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Like a jewel it’s small but with beauty and elegance. Captiva is only ten square miles but has some of the most beautiful white sand beaches in the world and offers all the amenities and things to do that you could want. There are sports capabilities for tennis, golf, sailing and fishing. The shops are stocked with whatever you might need – from chic island clothing to thumbtacks. And the restaurants are excellent, some of them world famous such as the Bubble Room and Mucky Duck. But most of all there is the Captiva culture. A carefree island lifestyle shared among like-minded people who enjoy the lack of formality and thrive on the beauty and simplicity of the natural island. In the midst of this beauty is a full menu of real estate accommodations – single-family homes, condominiums and villas. Condominiums are a large part of the market on Captiva and they are located mostly on the shores of the gulf or the bay. If you enjoy waterfront property with easy access to the beach or your boat this may be the life for you.
The Captiva real estate community includes a wide range of properties. The South Seas Resort, which occupies the north end of the island, is the largest complex offering 600 properties from simple hotel rooms to condominiums and large, beachfront homes. The other complexes are made up of condominiums and are smaller and more intimate, some with less than 10 units and others up to 50 units. Captiva is such a quaint, narrow stretch of island that virtually all these condominiums are right on the water – either the gulf or the bay – so you have the pleasure of a stirring sunrise to start your day or a glorious sunset to end a perfect day. All the condominiums we recommend are beautifully furnished and maintained to meet your very high standard. You will have all the necessary utensils, appliances, utilities and linens and access to all the wonders of Captiva.
