At the end of another fine day in paradise, step out on the beach with family and friends to admire the daily sunset – an incredibly beautiful event here on Captiva! Then let the sound of the gentle surf soothe your dreams on cool tropical evenings.
Here at the end of Captiva’s beautiful, private and quiet Laika Lane (photo on left), there is no public access so only a few neighbors will stroll up the sandy lane to the beach. Whispering pines and majestic palms shade The Island Girl and the newly landscaped grounds. Nature seems at ease with mankind as osprey play overhead, herons supervise fishing on the beach, and troops of spoonbills wander through the yard into the vast undeveloped tract behind the house. Island Girl’s location in the Captiva Village area is a big plus: you can easily stroll the short distance to anything you need including world class restaurants, well stocked stores, unique shops and vacation activities.
Island Girl guests enjoy a recently updated interior and exterior:
- All sparkling remodeled baths

Our new widescreen digital televisions are wall-mounted for optimal viewing.
The first of the two master bedroom suites, the “upstairs” suite. Each master suite has a king-size bed, TV, VCR and full private bath. This suite overlooks the pool area as well as the front grounds. The second master bedroom suite also enjoys a full private bath.
Two more bedrooms are furnished with a queen and two twin beds. The guest bathroom has a tub and shower. The twins bedroom has an en suite half bath.
Captiva Island is widely regarded as having one of the best beaches in the world. Island Girl is so very special as a vacation beach home because it’s so close to the beach (one house in from beachfront, about 100 feet). The convenience is especially nice if you like to pop in and out from the beach for drinks or snacks, maybe sunblock or your camera to photograph the dolphins at sunset. Beach activities include swimming in the warm water and gentle swells of the Gulf of Mexico, soaking up the south Florida sunshine, walking the sugar sands of the coastline, fishing, and watching the wildlife. Feel free to collect the beautiful shells on the beach – another reason Captiva Island is famous.
Outdoors at The Island Girl
While the interior of The Island Girl is exquisite, the great outdoors is what draws visitors to Captiva Island and its natural beauty. The Island Girl features a heated, private pool and integrated spa tub, plus landscaped grounds with flowers and tropical foliage. Just beyond is the Gulf of Mexico beach. The advantages of being this close to beachfront will be obvious, and you’ll be glad you stayed here! And Captiva holds many other attractions such as fishing and boating in the sound, tennis and golf, plus great shops and restaurants.
Heated Private Pool
This romantic pool is all yours for a week or more of relaxation at The Island Girl. A seahorse tile mosaic decorates the pool bottom, while artistic tile creations line the pool with its attached, in-ground spa tub. A gentle waterfall of warm water flows from the spa tub into the main pool.
The screen enclosure surrounds a furnished patio (chairs, table, lounges) where you can enjoy the sun and the pool without the intrusion of insects. Have a poolside barbecue with the deluxe gas grill. There are entrances to the pool and patio from the family room, living room, and carport. Behind The Island Girl is a huge tract of undeveloped tropical forest, which affords exceptional levels of peace and quiet. It’s hard to think of a nicer place to spend a relaxing vacation!
