We are a retired couple (Kay and Jake) who live in Leesburg, Virginia who enjoy coming down to their North Captiva Island vacation home during times when it is not being rented to enjoy the island and perform needed maintenance. We know what it takes to successfully operate a vacation rental home. We started in business in 1993 when we operated a vacation home, Casa Manatee, on Captiva Island. Upon the sale of Casa Manatee in 2001 we built our current vacation rental home, Manatee Haven, and started renting in 2002. We belong to the North Captiva Island Club but we rent our the home ourselves in order to have a better hands-on operation. We also have had the same managers since we started renting in 2002. Kay did all of the decorating and is very fussy about keeping a clean and functional vacation home for our guests. The rest of the family includes 2 daughters with son-in-laws and 8 grandchildren ranging from the age of 1 1/2 to 18 years.
