Wonderful, relaxing vacation
This was our first trip to North Captiva & we fell in love. We vacationed over our spring break with our 3 kids (3, 6 & 8) and really can't say enough about how much we enjoyed the island. The house met our needs perfectly - kitchen was well stocked with all of the utensils & dishes you could need, the house isn't huge, but the high ceilings made it feel especially spacious (& really, how much room do you need?), and the beaches (all of them) & club/pool are all really quick rides in the golf cart (easily seated 2 adults & 3 little ones). The golf cart could probably use a tune-up as it was a little difficult to steer, but never had a problem with the battery or otherwise. The island is gorgeous - beautiful weather each day, saw so much wildlife, and we went a full week without a single honk or siren - ahhhh. Our trip unfortunately ended with a trip to the emergency room after our son came down with a bad case of croup, but even so, the island emergency staff was quick to arrive, very professional & quickly transported he & my husband by boat to the mainland where they were met by an ambulance -the emergency was not exactly what we'd planned, but nice to know the service was there! We'll definitely plan to come back.
Tourists without a Car,
Families with Young Children,
Owner's Response: Glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay. I am sorry it had to end with an emergency trip to the hospital. One of the greatest things about North Captiva vs some of the other barrier islands is the airstrip, and 24/7 on site fire/emt. This makes emergencies much easier to handle. As to the golf cart issues, we have now included a golf cart from North Captiva Island Club, so that should be an issue in the future.
Hope to see you again!
