Nice house

  • 3 of 5

We recently spent a week at the Flamingo house. We were 4 adults and 4 kids. The house is nicely wise with open concept which is so comfortable, we really like that everything was in one floor. The only things to change are: queen mattresses and pillows as they feel in bad conditions, no very good to sleep in. The other thing is that the pool looks also old. The management cleaned it but at the bottom was still dirty with black spots. Also the house is near by a lot of nature debris which generate ponds after rains and a lot of mosquitos to be around. I don't know if this is something relate to the house's owner or the administration of the Island.

In general it was a good experience, this is our 5th year going and definitively not the last one.

Slice of Pardise

  • 5 of 5

This was once of our best vacations thus far! The weather was great, the beaches were nice, the staff was amazing! Flamingo House was exactly what we expected! The property is nice, great location, light and airy, spacious, in good repair. Only 2 things could be improved upon - the bed in the master bedroom is hard as a rock (the rest of the beds were great though) and the pool was hot, more appropriate for cooler weather. Staff added cold water on two occasions but the second time they came out they said what really needed to happen was a partial drain and fill with cold water - the temp was 95 degrees at 9 am! Those were minor issues that could be dealt with, overall the place was wonderful and we plan to come back! (It was so great I asked my 7-year-old if we should go to Disney World or North Captiva Island again and he said North Captiva of course!!!)

ac in home didn't work

  • 3 of 5

The house was fine after the ac was fixed. The kayaks were in desperate need of repair/no handles to carry/seat backs broken, bicycles/tires were flat. Asked for a tire pump none available nor was anyone to help. Restaurant s were expensive, wait staff were short with questions borderline rude. Have you ever heard of a restaurant charging you extra for sharing a sandwich with your husband? Well they do this here and at all restaurants. The General store carried things like windex and bug spray for your home. Hmm I'm on vacation not there to kill bugs in the home I'm renting for 3 nights. Nor do I want to clean windows on my vacation lol. We bought maybe a 4 ounce bottle of virgin olive oil for 5.00. The store didn't even have ketchup. A basic for most BBQ s. Would I stay there again? Hmm not really. Again the home was fine but the people we had encountered were not the friendliest or helpful! Sorry thumbs down on the North Captiva Island club. We won't visit again.

Beautiful house on a beautiful island

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with flamingo house as it offers our family the best of everything. Our special needs daughter can enjoy the pool while our son explores the island on a jet ski. House is stocked and ready for a weeks worth of cooking. We over bought food as we weren't sure if our daughter would handle eating out and Sandies grocery was a huge stress relief. Highly recommend using this service. Our daughter absolutely loved barnacles and their outdoor ping pong table as well as the ice cream from the store above. Everyone we interacted with was professional and helpful. Outside wood and furniture has been updated. Our kids liked the room with the 2 twins and the video game system. Thank you for such a great week and we will be returning!!!!!
