Guestbook comments from the manager

This is our families second year coming to North Captiva and it continues to get better. Your house was perfect fitting our family of 4. We lived comfortably for a week and enjoyed the outdoor pool/deck area the most. It was so nice to be able to have a pool and one that the sun is always hitting. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay. We really had a wonderful time and cannot wait to try and reserve this house again for next year.

Awesome home in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

The home was gorgeous and very well maintained. (There were a few small signs of wear, but it's someone's lived in house and it didn't bother us at all!) The pool was wonderful and we enjoyed having our own private tiki bar. We were able to take our two dogs, and really liked that the home was all tile flooring. The home sits near the airstrip, and we enjoyed watching planes take off and land every day. We really appreciated that the owners thought of the little things like a wine cooler. We also appreciated the documents that told us numbers to call in case of an emergency, restaurants to eat at, and general info about the house along with two island maps. The home came with two golf carts which we used daily. My future mother in law flew down last minute, and Beulah (property manager on the island) was very accommodating working with us to allow her to stay!

The island itself is stunning! We saw dolphins several times while on the island (including our boat ride back to the mainland!) This was by far the best vacation we have taken (and we've both taken many!) We're already planning our next trip back!

REEL PARADISE is REAL RELAXATION

  • 5 of 5

Perfect stay from pre arrival communication with the owners to the warm island greeting by Beulah & Autumn at the dock to a well maintained home, pool and golf cart! The kitchen is well stocked, includes everything you need for cooking even a wine cooler! The outdoor spaces (screened & decked) are numerous, plenty of comfortable outdoor furniture to sit as a group or find a quiet spot to read/sun. We enjoyed the privacy of the Tiki Bar/ pool and the owners spared no expense, providing a great gas grill! Wonderful property, perfect vacation...counting the months until we can return!

FYI, bring more food & less clothes😎
