Description from owner
Imagine a beach vacation at a house that's like your very own luxury beach resort called Gulf Dreams on-the-beach. The deed to this luxury beach house states that the property's west boundary is the Gulf of Mexico. The house has 75 feet of private, white sand Gulf beach for your pleasure, easily accessed by the only private, elevated boardwalk on the island.
Imagine arriving at Gulf Dreams on-the-beach's private 85-foot dock on a private canal (in your boat, or by boat taxi), located 1,000-feet east of Gulf Dreams's beach house. This dock can also be fished from. You will be greeted at the dock by the resort's manager who will transfer you and your luggage to the house. Imagine this manager, who is a full-time resident of the island, will familiarize you with the beach house and resort amenities, as well as the island, and will be a phone call away during your stay to meet your needs.
Imagine a secluded luxury beach house accessed by a long, lavishly-landscaped driveway providing privacy from golf cart traffic and neighboring houses.
Imagine having one of the only privately-owned swimming pools and pool-side gazebos on the island located on a beach dune, surrounded by lush tropical vegetation and a remotely controled waterfall that provides complete privacy.
Imagine your own luxury beach resort with its own beach picnic table,12 beach chairs and 6 umbrellas. Fishing from our private beach can be very good. Six kayaks make going to the island, 1/3 mile west of Gulf Dreams, in the Gulf, a great family shelling adventure. Six bicycles allow you to explore the wildlife preserve on the south 2/3 of North Captiva, especially the beach at low tide. A private volley ball court will be set up for guests, upon request, for entertainment on Gulf Dreams private beach. Ping-pong, board games, puzzles cards and chips allow for family fun out of the sun. The private canal dock allows fishing or docking your boat.
Imagine a bright and airy 4-story beach house with vaulted ceiling heights of 10 to 14 feet throughout, 2 large screened-in lanais with expansive views of the pool and Gulf of Mexico (one where you can eat all your meals outdoors, the other where you can play ping-pong and board games). Imagine a large, 4th-floor master suite, with spectacular 360-degree views of the Gulf and bay sides of the island, a gourmet, fully-equipped kitchen with granite counters and high-end appliances, travertine and granite bathrooms, most with twin sinks.
Imagine no longer! Your dreams can comes true when you rent Gulf Dreams on-the-beach. Let's get into the details of the pleasures that await you:
