Note from the Owners


Welcome to a virtual tour of Manatee Haven. Your journey begins just outside our home where a ramp leads your golf cart to the enclosed remote-controlled garage and storage area. From this point, you can observe Manatee Haven's many porches, swimming pool, screened areas and the observation deck which provides a commanding view of the entire island from 45 feet above the ground.

A screened heated 15 by 32 foot pool and a large screened patio are on the ground level. Swim laps, play pool games of basketball, volleyball or ping pong or just sit and relax! A private hot/cold shower is available off the pool and a Weber charcoal grill is ready for your poolside dining.

The first level has four well-appointed bedrooms: two kings, one queen and two twins, in addition to two full baths. Each of the bedrooms is fully tiled and beautifully appointed with island themes. There is a TV for your private enjoyment in each of the bedrooms and a Play Station 2 in the special twin bedroom suite.

The master bedroom is beautifully furnished and has a master bath with a full tub and shower. A small refrigerator in the master bedroom gives you easy access to cold drinks on this level. There is also a private screened lanai off the master bedroom that overlooks the pool and patio.

The other three bedrooms and bathroom extend off the hallway leading away from the master bedroom. There is a twin bedroom, a queen bedroom and a second king bedroom. All three bedrooms have ceiling fans and a TV/VCR in addition to a Play Station 2 in the twin's suite. All new furniture and linens with island themes complement the décor.

The fabulous second level of Manatee Haven has a fully equipped kitchen with Corian countertops and a bar for an enjoyable breakfast or lunch. Plenty of room to relax and enjoy the Gulf views from a Natuzzi leather sectional, watch TV, or listen to some great music on a Bose Wave Music System. A dining area is off the kitchen and has a full glass/wood table with extensions and six chairs. There is also a full bath on this level. In addition there is a bar server with a separate refrigerator to keep your drinks cold. A 25 foot lanai is off the great room and faces the Gulf where you can take pleasure in the view and relax with the Gulf breezes. The lanai features a patio table and four chairs, an electric grill and chaise lounges for relaxing.

From the screened lanai there is a spiral staircase that leads to an observation deck with a grand 360 degree panoramic view of North Captiva Island, the gulf, bay and surrounding islands. An Edmund's Scientific portable Astroscan telescope is available to view the universe. It has all lenses available for an easy view of the planets and it also has a Barlow lens and an erect image lens.
