BLOWN AWAY AT WINDSWEPT, MARCH 2009

Let me say that "IT TAKES ALOT TO IMPRESS ME AND I WAS IMPRESSED !" A perfect private pool, luxurious well appointed accomodations, every kitchen appliance/device known to man. Attention to all the right details with a quick response, by the owners, to deal with any requests. Loved the great room. The perfect place for families to reconnect at days end, after viewing sunsets you have only pictured. Plan your menu and make sure to bring all your food/drinks/snacks etc. with you. The extra initial effort will ensure a worry free week. Several restaurants and a general store, on the island, if you have forgotten something or wish to do less. Enjoy the native wildlife, dolphins, manatees, skates, tortoises, snakes, hawks, eagles. If fishing interests you, dont' let this opportunity slip by. Sign out a bike, kayak, rent a boat/ jetski OR simply lay in the sun with a good book and do nothing. No cars, only golf carts and sand roads. Hard to describe but think Gilligans Island with all the amenities. Mark and Wendy provide it all. I don't think that any place can be perfect, but in our thirty years of vacationing, for us this was not too far from it and exactly what we were looking for.

The Windswept home is beautiful - inside and out. The accomodations are truly luxurious. The home is stocked with everything you could possibly need in a home away from home. The beds and linens were 5 star.
The views from the tower are breathtaking, and we enjoyed the sunset every evening! The house was perfect for our family reunion - among us all, we had 6 kids, who also had the time of thier lives!

"Very relaxing - low key- but plenty to keep busy!"

"Very Clean, Comfy- the toy room was a big hit!"

"Every need was met before we arrived + while we were here."

"The pool + location were fabulous, being next to the preserve was great as the kids got to see lots of animals [gopher tortises], take long walks + collect shells, not having neighbors on top of us was a big plus!! We all
thought North Captiva would be a repeat vaca! We enjoyed
our stay - Thank you Penny, Greg + Timmy Fonde"

How would you rate our home, Windswept, overall? "Much better than expected."
