The Perfect Family Vacation
Hidden Harmony was exactly what we hoped it would be and more! There were no 'surprises' as there so often are when you rent a vacation home. We have a large family and rent a beach house every summer. We've been to many Florida destinations as well as Playa Del Carmen and California. We have learned that the houses are never quite the same as they look on the internet, THIS HOUSE WAS DIFFERENT! EVERYTHING WAS AS IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE! The owner/property manager, Ian, was so helpful. He always got right back to us with information and answers, he sent us pictures from his own vacation at the house earlier in the summer so we could have a better idea of what the island was like. We had Sandie's grocery's shop for us and stock our house, which for us was 100% worth the fee! We took a private charter boat over to the island which, with a party of 6 was cheaper than the ferry service. I highly recommend Captain Dan of Bokeelia Water Taxi, he was fantastic his boat was large, clean and very comfortable. Plus he was a great tour guide! We were greeted at the dock by Vicki, who was very helpful getting us to the house via golf carts. In our 10 days on the island we only needed to call Vicki twice and she took care of us immediately. The island was even more beautiful than we had imagined, pictures do not do it justice. The shelling beach was incredible! We absolutely loved our stay from beginning to end. North Captiva Club was very low key, clean beautiful pools, great little bar and restaurant, we really enjoyed getting to know the staff at the club they were fun and friendly and poured a tasty margarita. One MUST do; Kayaking from NCIC ( kayaks are free to club members and guests so we rented the kayaks often!) on the kayak trips we saw dolphins frolicking all around our small boat, within 10 feet of us! Manatees came right up to our kayak rubbed their bellies on our boats and followed us around. My kids Loved the manatees!!! the wildlife on and around North Captiva Island just can't be beat. We stayed for 10 days and it was not enough. We could have stayed the entire summer! We loved Hidden Harmony. The house was very clean, super spacious, so much to do; pool table, several large screen tvs, X-box and games, dart board, swimming pool, gourmet kitchen, wrap around screened in decks, golf carts, basketball court.....BEAUTIFUL VIEWS, everything you need to have a great family vacation. Thank you Ian!!! our trip was wonderful and we hope to come back soon!
