About Captiva

Manateaze  is a truly magnificent home on the "Gold Coast" section of Captiva Drive. The house is extremely spacious and there will be more than plenty of room for 10 guests. It offers all the amenities, including private heated pool and spa, dock, elevator, two garages, wet bar, deeded beach access (across Captiva Drive), and more.

Your visit to Manateaze begins with the fish sign on Captiva Drive (photo left), guiding you into the estate. The long, curving, white shell driveway (with pull-off spots for extra parking) leads you through manicured gardens and under graceful palms to the house. There is the house, just beyond the front garden in the center of the driveway circle (photo below left). You can return later to enjoy the calm and beauty of the elevated front garden, with its pools and palms. Manateaze has deeded beach access: go across Captiva Drive, and walk between the two palm trees (between 16632 and 16636).

Front Garden: Quiet and Beautiful

Back Steps with Railing

Inside, you'll find the two-story atrium lit by natural light from many large windows and sliding glass doors. Just beyond is the fabulous sun deck, with its pool and spa tub. Continuing through the rear garden, find the path to the dock and absorb the peaceful splendor of Captiva's water front. Here live osprey, herons and other wading birds, pelicans and more. Under the surface are the fish they eat, and sometimes you may even see our awesome mammals: manatees, and dolphins.

The pool is best in class, as you might expect for such a grand house and property. Water cascades gently into the pool from the spa tub across glass bricks, like the sound of fountains at a classic Mediterranean villa. The pool even has a built-in table with underwater bench seating (photo left) - perhaps you'll wish for a butler to bring refreshments while you're enjoying the warm sunshine!
