Great oceanfront house

  • 4 of 5

The house is in an amazing location and you can't beat the views from all the decks. The house is huge and decorated very nicely. This house is currently for sale so I'm not sure who is managing the upkeep. Most of our issues were small but when numerous they add up. With what you pay to stay here you expect top notch service. First, we were given the wrong keys to the house and had to come back to exchange them. The pool heater was off when we arrived and the pool bottom was dirty with sand. We turned the thermostat up immediately and called and requested a pool cleaning which I'm not sure ever happened. There are small things wrong with the house that could be easily fixed. The only bathtub does not work. Somehow the knob to switch it from shower to bath is missing. The other bathrooms all have very nice showers. The linens were all slightly stained but I washed everything when we arrived. The washer and dryer work great. There were not enough towels in the house for showering. Only one per bathroom. There were only three old beach towels which is not nearly enough for use outside. The kitchen has everything you could need. All the furntiture is slightly nicked, but all the beds are comfortable. All the TV s work. A big issue for me is that the deck that was supposed to be screened in was missing two screens. The bugs down there can be relentless and it's nice to be able to sit on a screened porch when you advertised a screened porch. Also both the fans on that level are broken and do not work. Also the downstairs lights by the pool are missing with just wires hanging from them.

Lastly, our golf cart that was provided was almost impossible to turn and there was no charger at the house when we arrived. It seems some of the service that was so great on North Captiva is not so great anymore. The receptionist on pine island was very helpful, but the lady on the island was not as helpful. The people working on the ferry would talk negatively about other vacationers in front of guests. This is our third time here in the last three years and we absolutely love he nature here, but I think next year we might try a different island in the area.

Beautiful and relaxing place, but early check outs are tough with rain and a baby!

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful property and beautiful location. However, plan to leave for home early on your last day. Our only option was an 8:30 pm flight. Check out is at 10:00 this morning, and we have no great place to wait for our 4:30 ferry with a 2 month old. It's windy and rainy, so the pool area is not viable and the restaurant is closed on Sundays. Guess we may spend the next 6 hours in the small check in office. A not great end to an otherwise fabulous trip.

Great beachfront location

  • 3 of 5

The Green Flash house is located on a great beachfront location! The house location was excellent for days on the beach, quick dips in the pool and amazing sunsets! Our family enjoyed being literally 5 steps from the beach! If you are looking for a beachfront home this house is great. The sunsets we're amazing! we utilized the outdoor screened in porch for many sunsets, dinners and coffee in the mornings. The overall decor of the home was ok for the price. It needs some updating of bar cushions and outdoor cushions. The kitchen was lacking hand towels, Broom/dustpan, vacuum as well as decent frying pans. You definitely need to bring extra paper towels, bottled water for coffee(no filtered water) and some counter spray to be able to clean off counters. There was only 1 small non stick pan. The house had 4 bedrooms with 1 king with a private full bathroom, 1 queen with a private bathroom, 1 twin bed room and 1 queen room that shared a hall full bathroom. Our 2 families of 9 people was perfect for this home.

This house could be 5 star if it did some minor updating of cushions/appliances, touch ups of paint in some of the rooms. Maybe a better beachy decor. Some repairs need to be made to pool lattice that was surrounding the pool. The pool however was a great size and also had an outdoor shower, pool box storage with some toys. A ceiling fan out on one of the patios was broken.

There were 2 beach chairs and some beach towels. The house would have been great if they could have supplied kayaks to use from the house. There is a great sandbar out from the beach that would have been fun to get to if we would have had kayaks. You can use the Island clubs but it is too far to kayak around to get to sandbar. The house also has a lower level storage unit that is not being utilized. It would have been great if they could finish it out as a game room/hang out room for teenagers. The house only came with 1 golf cart that seats 4. We tried to get another cart but had no luck getting another one. It would have been great if the house supplied 2 carts or a large 6 person cart.

Overall we loved our stay on the island. We rented a boat for the week and fished and cruised around to the other nearby islands for lunch. Cabbage Key :for drinks and lunch, Captiva: for lunch at key lime bistro and bait at Jenson's Marina, Caya costa ( kids loved the manatee hole) Boca Grande for lunch at the Pink Elephant and shopping in their cute town.
