The Island of Captiva is one of the last great places left on earth. A place so remote and exotic that those who are truly fortunate enough to own real estate here, really know all that it is that they have. Located at the most northern tip above it's sister island below (Sanibel), Captiva Island is by far one of the most special places in all of Florida. With two and a half miles of beaches this small sanctuary is an exhibit to all that a private luxury real estate lifestyle is all about. The Old Captiva House at Tween Waters Resort is rated amongst the finest places to dine in America. Just west of Fort Myers, Captiva is still in a world of it's own. Located at the absolute very end with 360 degree panoramic oceanfront views that circe it's tip on the northern end. Captiva fronts the Gulf of Mexico on it's immediate left with Pine Island located to it's east.
On average there are typically 20 or so listings in the MLS showing available on the island of Captiva. Single family homes and luxury estates will range from the $1 million price point all the way up to $15 million and sometimes even $20 million plus. A few lots are also on the market at any given time but barely a handful if even. The prices on vacant land start around $200,000 and can go as high as half a million or more for a desirable beachfront lot. Most of the construction quality on both Captiva and Sanibel includes two story homes with mainly the upstairs being the area in which most of the living quarters are used. With Florida hurricanes being a topic of much concern, building codes are a must to be adhered to here in this part of the tropics. High quality finishes are a must for most luxury in the area including exterior landscaping that includes plants such as bird of paradise, fan palms, and other exotic and expensive plants.
Acces to Captiva is via a small bridge that crosses Blind Pass from Sanibel Island. An island north of Sanibel, it is located along the Gulf of Mexico in one of the most highly regarded real estate sections of Southwest Florida. Vacationers and second homeowners, and their long lineage of family traditions, have been coming here and enjoying their second homes. Captiva thrives on it's many large luxury dream homes, classy condominiums, fantastic restaurants, and widely sought after beaches. Captiva's total area measures 1.7 square miles. Not all of it is land. A portion (approx. 28%) is actually water. Homes both on the bay and along the Gulf of Mexico are considered millionaires row. It is not uncommon to see a luxury fine construction dream mansion selling for $7 Million or more. In 1888 Captiva became a homestead with it's very first resident, an Austrian native. An unspoiled yet extraordinary destination.
