This property has been in my family since 1978 which was the year it was built. The particular unit was chosen for the best ocean view without having to go up and down additional steps every time you go somewhere. As you can tell from the photos, the view from this condominium is better than many of the higher up units. It was purchased for the unique feel of seclusion, remoteness and the closeness with nature. The islands have maintained the feel through the years due to the limited commercial build up. Being located in southwest Florida also provides a better chance of swimming weather, even in the coldest of North American months. Many in my family have vacationed and honeymooned here, including us. There are lots of wonderful memories. We hope that you too will soon have memories to cherish for years to come from your visit to Captiva Island.
