Guestbook comments from the manager

I stayed at Cinco De Mayo house on North Captiva island recently with a group of old friends. Everything we could possibly need was already stocked in the house upon our arrival. The accommodations have been upgraded since my previous visits to Cinco De Mayo including a beautifully renovated kitchen and counter top. The house comfortably slept the 8 members of our group. We especially enjoyed hanging out on the roof-top deck which offers impressive views of the island and sunsets. Cinco De Mayo is in an ideal location minutes walk and/or golf cart ride from the docks and pool club or the beach and Gulf of Mexico. If you are looking to cool off after a day at the beach or on the water fishing, the house has a private pool. The pool is sunny during the day and is especially refreshing in the afternoon when you can chill in the shade. I would recommend Cinco De Mayo to anyone looking to escape to an untouched corner of Florida and experience its natural beauty. Whether you are an avid fisherman, large family or group or even just a couple looking to get away, this spot should be number one on your list.

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Cinco de Mayo was everything we hoped it to be in a beach house. We have three children (9, 11 & 14), we also had along with us my 77 year old mother. The house was perfectly equipped for fun, cooking great meals and relaxing on the beautiful deck to enjoy sun sets. We loved the ping pong table, board games and pool. We also had a great time tooling around the island in the golf cart. The owners were great communicators when before and during my stay when I had occasional questions either about the items in the house for planning or activities to do around the island. North Captiva is one of our very favorite places to visit and relax with our family. Thanks for a great stay!!

Fun in the sun with friends!

  • 5 of 5

We were so lucky to have stayed at the cinco de mayo house for the weekend! It went above and beyond our expectations! Not only was it extremely clean and spacious, it was decorated with designer style! It was so comfortable and completely stocked with everything we needed to have a perfect stay! The owners have obviously thought of everything to create a home away from home for their guests! We will definitely being going back for our next get together!

Wonderful home to rent!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the property with a group of our friends. We had the best time! The home was super clean, nicely decorated and comfortable. The bedrooms were spacious with TVs with very comfortable beds - perfect for relaxing and napping babies. We cooked all of our meals and the equipment in the kitchen was well stocked with all of the equipment you would need for gourmet meals.

We were close to the beach and took long walks around the entire island each morning. Lastly the private pool at the house was so nice and fun to hang out to cool off even with the Gulf Breeze. We were able to bring our boat with us since some of us were from Naples and the experience was great and so easy to drive to on our own. But the ferry is super easy for those coming from out of town! We can't wait to go back!!

Relaxing week!

  • 4 of 5

Cinco De Mayo has all your needs for a fun filled vacation. The kitchen is fully stocked with all of your cooking needs. From a person who cooks a lot, that's SO good to have. Just need to add a garlic press to the stash (the one there was broken). The house was clean and very comfortable. The pool is great too. We had a blast on our first visit to North Captiva, and will definitely be back again!

Exceptional experience at Cinco de Mayo!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic experience at Cinco de Mayo this summer, which made our visit to North Captiva a vacation we will always remember. The house was immaculate and had every amenity would could ever need - from a fully furnished kitchen with lots of appliances, dishes and space to beautiful bedrooms with comfortable beds and lots of extra sheets, blankets and pillows. The living space on the second floor is so bright with huge glass sliding doors leading to a screened in porch with a great view. the roof balcony was a fantastic place to watch the sunset on the water each night. We really loved the location with it being right around the corner from the club. We were able to walk over and check-out kayaks and bikes whenever we wanted. Our 5 boys loved the pool at the house, and we played ping-pong and cornhole each day. Sarah was such a fantastic host for us - checking in on us and making sure everything was just perfect. I highly recommend Cinco de Mayo to everyone and am grateful for the experience we had!

This was our second trip to North Captiva Island for a family vacation. We had enjoyed the island very much on our first trip and decided to take another. We opted for a larger home because our children were now teenagers and we thought they may want a little more space. We chose Cinco De Mayo for that reason. Sarah Rapp was great throughout the rental process. She answered all of my questions quickly We drove our vehicle to NCIC transportation center on Pine Island where we left our car for the week with no issues. (They do charge for parking). The boat ride over to the island was quick and efficient. "Check In" was in a group. Information was given to everyone at the same time and keys to the homes were passed out during that time. Your luggage is transported separately to the island and distributed to your home by the NCIC staff. One of our bags was misplaced and returned to us within a few hours. The staff was very apologetic. Unfortunately there was a storm when the luggage was being transported and our clothing was wet, but we did pack in canvas bags.

The home is fantastic. The living space is open and looks exactly like the pictures. Kitchen is well appointed and has just about everything you could possibly need. (There is even a crock pot). Everything was very clean upon arrival. The beds were comfortable. A very nice touch is that some laundry detergent was provided along with several beach towels for your use during your stay. Sarah Rapp called a few hours after we had checked in to ensure everything was O.K. She encouraged us to contact her if we had any issues.

With your rental, you are provided with a golf cart. We had an issue with our cart not charging and the charger looked like it had seen better days. We called NCIC and left a message about our issue. We called a few hours later and spoke with a person and were assured that someone would be out to 'look at it'. After about six hours without anyone coming to 'look at it', we emailed Sarah. She immediately emailed us back and within about 30 minutes we had a new charger! Sarah worked magic! We utilized the kayaks a few times while we were there. We saw dolphins and manatees everyday. Our kids also utilized the basketball court and the tennis courts. The outdoor living space is great. Spent a lot of time in the pool and playing ping pong. The house also has a great selection of board/card games. Nice way to end the day after the beautiful sunsets. Cannot wait to go back! Thanks Sarah
