Home Description

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 Gulf Dreams 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 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 four stories tall accessed by a long, lavishly-landscaped driveway providing privacy from golf cart traffic and neighboring houses. The house sleeps 12 in five Bedrooms with en-suite Bathrooms.

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 remote controlled 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 offshore 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 volleyball court will be set up for guests upon request for entertainment on Gulf Dreams' 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.

Vacation Paradise

The family really enjoyed our stay at Gulf Dreams on the Beach. The house was beautiful and offered so much privacy and seclusion that you felt like you were on your own private island. The beach was beautiful and we loved seeing the dolphins, manatee and tortoise.

The house managers, Jane and Jeff were very helpful and informative and wonderful to deal with.

Rest And Relaxation At Its Finest!

We absolutely loved our stay at Gulf Dreams On-The-Beach! Your home and island far surpassed our expectations in so many ways. Everything went so smoothly the 10 days we were on the island. From arrival to departure, no detail was missed. The house was magnificent! Plenty of space for our party of 8 to spread out and relax. My husband and I were fortunate enough to stay on the top floor in the master suite. Wow! What a way to wake up in the mornings. The views were amazing and the bathroom was fabulous!! For that matter, the whole house had wonderful views from the multitude of windows and decks.

You truly have thought of everything a renter might need or want. From the golf carts, bikes, kayaks, pool toys, beach chairs and umbrellas, beach toys, life jackets, boogie boards, etc. Everything was put to good use. The pool was so refreshing after a day out on the boat or in the ocean. We loved all the beautiful, lush landscaping that surrounded the pool and the shade it provided us.

We rented a boat from Four Winds Marina for the week and they were wonderful to work with. It was handy having a boat dock so close to the house. Our kids loved watching the manatees at your boat dock.They were very playful in the mornings.

You also provided us with such DETAILED information before our trip. We definitely took advantage of all the restaurant suggestions and the maps were very helpful. We visited several islands during our stay and the men in our group loved taking the boat out fishing. Our favorite restaurant off North Captiva was the Tarpon Lodge. Great atmosphere and excellent food. On North Captiva, we spent lots of evenings at Mangos. Everyone on the island was so helpful and friendly.

I would also like to add that Jeff and Jane did a fantastic job of meeting any need we may have had during our stay. Jeff was at the dock at arrival to help with the luggage and get us settled in and Jane helped with our departure. My brother-in-law developed a bad ear infection midway through our stay and went to a medical clinic while we were exploring the island of Boca Grande. When a prescription was called into the wrong pharmacy, Jane went out of her way to go pick it up for him in Cape Coral. This is just one example of the care and dedication Jeff and Jane showed to us as guests. You are very blessed to have them as caretakers!!

We hope to return again someday and couldn't imagine staying anywhere other than your beautiful home! Thanks again!

Beautiful property!

I've never rented a house before, and this trip exceeded my expectations. We rented the house with my sister's family and my dad. The house comfortably fits 12 people and we never felt "on top of each other." We loved being on an island -- very relaxing - and enjoyed the beach and pool every day. We spent most of or time on the 3rd floor - cooking in the kitchen, eating meals, kids having downtime watching TV. There were plenty of sitting areas. We also spent a lot of time on the screened in porch - enjoying the view of the beach while we ate. We kayaked a lot - mostly to the sandbar where every day we found new shells and sand dollars deposited by the tide. We also went to the beach every night where we were lucky enough to see the international space station and a meteor shower on 7/27. We enjoying seeing dolphins, ghost crabs, sting rays, jumping fish, and a newly hatched sea turtle. The house had everything we needed -- a fully stocked kitchen, laundry, tons of beach towels. We went out to eat one night at Over the Water and really enjoyed the experience (especially the server feeding the catfish the leftovers which we saw when we left!). The property manager, Jane, was great at answering questions and addressing any needs while we were there. My only advice for those going is to plan food carefully because there are no grocery stores on the island. We got our food through Publix, but that was more expensive than I thought it would be. Someone on the island told me about the SHIPT app where you can order your food online and have it delivered to Island Girl Charters at the time of your boat taxi. Apparently, this was WAY CHEAPER. I've never tried it but am planning to try it out in the future! We had a great vacation with great memories. Several of my coworkers were "WOWED" with this property and may take a trip here in the future! Lastly, I will say that the owners were easy to work with and seemed genuinely interested in ensuring that we had a great time.

Great place to get away from it all.

Our family really enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere of the island. The property is private and the home is beautiful inside. We found lots of shells on the beach and the kayaks were a lot of fun.
