We have rented vacation homes in Emerald Isle, Myrtle Beach, Fripp Island and Hilton Head. Aviva Captiva is definitely our new favorite. The property is both clean and spacious. The house was laid out perfectly for our family. We enjoyed the massive master suite away from the commotion while all our adult children and grand children spread out in the remaining bedrooms. We spent our days at the nearby beach sunning, shelling, swimming, and jet skiing. By afternoon we all were enjoying "Happy Hour" and appetizers poolside at the house. We all took turns preparing dinners on the Webber Grill and in the well equipped kitchen. Everything we needed was within walking distance including bars, restaurants, shopping and a marina where several manatees gathered every morning. One of the highlights of our trip was the day we rented a pontoon boat. We motored to Cabbage Key for a fabulous lunch then we ventured to our own secluded beach where we swam and fished (caught 3 Grouper) for hours. On the journey back to the marina we saw several schools of dolphins many of which swam near the boat. Aviva Captiva provided irreplaceable memories for our family and I highly recommend the property for your next family vacation.
