About Kathy Biggs

I now live in Pigeon Forge Tn. but grew up in the Fort Myers area and have always loved Capitiva. This is like home to me. Weekends as a child were always spent boating to this island with my family. I eventually want to retire in this home so when I decided to build in 2007 I put in all the special features desired in a private home. I hope you enjoy my home as I do!!

Kathy Biggs purchased this house in 2009

Why Kathy Biggs chose Captiva

I chose this location because of it's beautiful and private beaches. Captiva is also known as the #1 shelling beach in North America and I am a 'Shell Lover'. I spent many weekends with my family on this island.

What makes this house unique

You can enjoy a tranquil setting in the 2 & 1/2 story screened in Pool enclosure with a waterfall heated spa. The pool deck is large and has both shaded and sun areas for everyone. The entire first floor is a gameroom with a 12 foot shuffleboard table, foosball table, bar area, family room with large screen LCD television and DVD player, and a full bath. There are also 3 levels of decks offering both shaded and sunbathing areas and even a rooftop sundeck for the ultimate water view.

Awesome Home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house. There were seven of us and we had more than enough space. It is very homey and comfortable and decorated beautifully. It had everything we needed including a hot tub and pool! We rented the golf cart and bikes from the owner and had fun tooling around on them. Doc Fords and the Mucky Duck were favorites of ours. The Crows Nest has crab races on Thursday nights. That was entertaining.

Great house for a family get away!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our first family vacation at the Lazy Palm And can’t say enough about it. The location is great, the house is well appointed and spotless and the layout is great for extended family “togetherness “. Each room has its own bath and there are numerous decks for a few minutes of quiet rest and relaxation. The use of the bikes and golf cart were great and we took full advantage of long bike rides and convenient beach shuttles. The pool area is lovely and relaxing and we enjoyed great cooked meals as well as a couple of yummy and fun dinners out. The owner was friendly and responsive and I had one question about the grill after business hours that was answered promptly and efficiently. This is truly a place to relax, unwind and enjoy family time and we hope to enjoy this beautiful spot again!

Great Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The house was a great place for my wife and I and our two children's family. It was large enough that we could get away on a deck or the crow's nest and spend some quiet time. Most of all, our 3 grandsons loved the pool. The location was perfect, a minute or two away from the center of Captiva village. The beach was about 5 minutes walk, but we used the golf cart to get people back and forth with the beach equipment. There were a lot of bicycles, but the condition of the bikes was not too good. Would definitely recommend this house to someone who wants to get away with their families and enjoy the peace and tranquility of Captiva. Sunsets were fantastic and the weather was perfect (We were there in late April.)

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. I am so glad you and your family had a great time and hope you will visit Lazy Palm again. I just recently replaced the golf cart and the bicycles are next. I know some of them aren't looking up to par even though they work . I am headed to my home one week from today and during my stay I am changing at least some of those bicycles for new ones. I actually started out with 4 new bikes and over the years I have somehow gained 2 or 3 others. Thanks again for you feedback and on your next stay the bikes should be much newer . Kathy

Beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

There is a group of women that have rented this house for the past 3 years and will again this year. This is our yearly get away to relax and enjoy each others company. The house is very inviting and has everything you need to have a wonderful vacation. It is within walking distance to the beach, shopping and dining. Watch the sunrise or set on the crows nest. You won't be disappointed with your vacation at the Lazy Palms!!!

Great space for a family get together!

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our family gathering. Everybody had their own bed/bath plus a guest bath. The best way to start the day was breakfast on the balcony overlooking the heated pool, which was used everyday. The location was convenient and just a short walk to groceries, coffee, shopping and the beach. We enjoyed making lasting memories at the Lazy Palm.

Car: recommended

Captiva is a beautiful quaint island and small village. There are no high rises and the beaches are fabulous and uncrowded. The wild life is awesome with dolphins, manatee, turtles, and birds. We are located so that you can walk every where or enjoy our optional golf cart. Shelling is some of the best any where.
