Tenderly is a romantically warm “Old Captiva” style home on the beach, perfectly suited for a great family vacation. If you love Gulf breezes whispering in those shady pines and palms which make Captiva unique, Tenderly is your beach house.

With its cypress walls and heart pine floors, Tenderly has the ambiance and style of the early 20th century with all the modern convenience and luxury of the 21st. Genuine but functional antiques and period doorknobs authenticate the classic milieu. Relax in comfort: Tenderly furnishings are the best, deluxe windows and doors glide effortlessly, plumbing and wiring are contemporary, WIFI keeps you connected if you wish, and a premium hot tub invites happiness. The house itself encompasses 5000 square feet, and the spaciousness is put to excellent use: withdraw in serene privacy or join together in the common areas for joyful times on Captiva.

Your beach side deck with six person hot tub is just steps off the sand. Lighted Tiki Hut is new and shady, with a cool shower and foot wash. Hot nature showers are located outside the master and guest wings. Share the beach and Gulf with snowy egrets, white ibis, blue herons and graceful dolphins. If you must keep up with the world or your work, use the upstairs office, overlooking the Gulf, with WIFI, fax, scanner and printer provided. WIFI coverage extends throughout the house. Watch the sun go down on your day from the swing on the beach. Get up the next day and do it all, or nothing, again.

Tenderly is the perfect place for special occasions. Picture sunset on the beach with your family and friends, followed by candlelight dinner and conversation in front of the fireplace (sorry, fireplaces are not available to guests). The living room is large and graceful with plenty of room for entertaining. The upstairs office and family room are light and airy with a great view of the Gulf and the feel of a treehouse.

Your beach privacy here on Captiva is unparalleled on the continental United States. No fighting for a beach chair here. Tenderly’s beach is located within the most sparsely-populated part of Captiva, and far from any public beach access. It’s no wonder that Captiva was rated among the top five Best Romantic Beaches in America by author and leading authority, Dr. Beach.

The village of Captiva has the flavor of the Caribbean with its colorful buildings, eclectic shops and restaurants. Anne Morrow Lindbergh was visiting Captiva when she was inspired to write Gift from the Sea. Captiva retains much of its early 20th century charm today, due in part to isolation and in part to development lovingly executed. Tenderly has been gently restored to reflect Captiva’s heritage. You will want to make Tenderly your beach home again and again.

The Tenderly great room occupies the large center of the house. This spacious area runs from the grand entrance past the formal dining table (seating eight or more) and the living room with HDTV (fireplace not operational) to the glass wall facing the beach. At the beach end, screened porches split off to the south (master wing) and to the north (king and queen guest bedrooms). Or continue straight onto the west deck with its large, pristine hot tub and outdoor dining table. Keep going and you’re on the beach!
