Pat met us at the dock and was very helpful in getting us settled into the house.
The house was very comfortable and convenient to the beach. We have been to North Captiva several other times and this is by far the best place we have stayed. Would stay there again.
We absolutely loved our stay in Shell Cottage. We had perfect weather! The house had plenty of room for 3 adults and 2 kids. The house included everything we needed and was really comfortable. We spent most mornings fishing, hiking, and hanging out on the beach. We took advantage of using the trailer to take the kayaks out on the water. The pool was great for relaxing in the afternoons. Although we didn't get to meet Pat on this trip, she was always quick to answer questions prior to our trip and even helped us locate a metal detector when my sister in law lost her wedding ring on the beach (we actually found it!). Make sure you leave plenty of time to stop at the grocery store on your way, lines were long on a Saturday afternoon. Better yet, do as much shopping at home if possible, groceries are pricy near Pine Island. It was a great first trip to North Captiva for us!
Comfortable beach home - perfect location on the island!!!
Perfect location on the island and all the comforts and convenience of home. Roomy, comfortable, beautifully decorated beach home. Enjoyed our stay and plan to return in the future. Thanks to Pat for helping to make this an easy and relaxing trip for our family .... meeting us at the dock, staying in contact, and working with any of our needs or concerns quickly.
Great location on North Captiva
House is great, liked this location on the island better than some other spots. The Levins are accessible and helpful owners. We enjoyed the beach, pool and wildlife here. Kids enjoyed shelling. I was also able to do a treasure hunt with them around the island which was so cool. Relaxing to walk and cart everywhere. Such a unique location which we found quite by accident and so glad we tried it. Tip to first timers: prepare that grocery list carefully. You can get a few staples on the island but not produce or frozen goods. We did well but just emphasizing the preparation needed.
We loved everything about our stay on North Captiva!
The house and beach were beautiful! Our family had such a wonderful time. Thanks!
We booked Shell Cottage because we were looking for a home on the island that had all the amenities but still had the cottage feel. And that is exactly what we received. A short ferry ride over was a fun way to start the vacation. Pat and Tom met us at the dock as planned. A short drive in golf carts and we arrived at the home. The upper level of this home and been beautifully renovated to include a fresh island feel, wonderful linens, great bathrooms and a kitchen with everything that you would ever need and more. The upper level porch on this home provides a relaxing place for morning coffees, reading a book and outdoor dining. The lower level includes a beautiful pool surrounded by lush planting and great dining area (especially at night under the stars) The beach access at the end of the street provides one of the best beaches with daily dolphin sightings and sunsets to die for. Would highly recommend this home for small group looking for relaxing week in a quiet atmosphere. Enjoyed dinners at local restaurants and renting a boat was also a highlight for us. These owners provide an easy rental experience from beginning to end. Thank you Pat and Tom
