Beautiful home needs some upkeep - potential 5 star
I have thought a lot about this rating - I hate leaving negative reviews, so I’ve qualified by saying the house could be a 5 if a few things be were fixed. I also figure that these reviews are more for renters than owners - and I’m not being helpful to the next renter if I don’t point out the things that need fixing.
So I started with a 5. The house is pretty, clean well decorated and spacious. It’s right next to the main dock and pool area.
I have deducted several points to reflect 4 key issues:
1). The freezer doesn’t work. We tried to address it over 4 days and it was just frustrating. We lost $50 worth of food and had to spend $250 eating out becaude of the lost food. You have to buy all the groceries before you go to the island - so if you don’t have a functional freezer it throws everything off.
2). The observation deck is missing a spindle. This is a key safety issue. We couldn’t enjoy the top deck for fear of my toddler falling out. The owner should address this dangerous flaw immediately.
3). The grill didn’t work. It was ultimately fixed but after 3 days and 4 or 5 requests. I get island time but again when you plan the week, it should be fixed swiftly.
4). The main golf cart didn’t work and the other one had a separate charger we couldn’t find. We ultimately got a replacement cart from the manager but it was a point of concern and frustration because we are supposed to leave it fully charged and did not, but not for lack of effort.
If the owner deal with these issues I think you have a 5. It’s a great house and North captiva is amazing. But these are some pretty basic functional items that make up a standard relaxing stay in paradise. Best of luck to the owner and to future renters.
Our family stay was quite simply wonderful. Beautiful house, there was nothing lacking. Thanks for allowing us a piece of your paradise for the week.
