Very comfortable house and the owners are great!
We would definitely come back to North Captiva and stay at this house. If you have any issues, Greg will take care of it and make sure you have a great stay.
Property was great.
We had a fantastic time at Runway Chalet. The Home was well equipped and has spectacular views. We Plan on returning again in the future.
Great house on a beautiful island
Our family of 4 had a lovely time on our first visit to north captiva island. Our son thought staying on the runway was fascinating and we saw many dolphins each time we went to the beach. Getting anywhere on the island is a breeze in the golf cart and the beaches are gorgeous, clean, and secluded. The house itself had everything we needed and was very well laid out with views everywhere. Definitely need to plan grocery shopping beforehand because there is hardly anything at the island market. We got bread and milk and some candy there, but the best side we could find to go with our burgers was Pringles. The kids didn't mind a bit! We planned a couple of dinners at home, ate out the other nights and made lots of sandwiches to take to the beach. I'd recommend more than one loaf of bread for a week, extra snack food and fresh produce. The wildlife, the landscape, and the great house made it all wonderful. Even the Pringles.
Shhhh! It is the best kept secret in Florida. Great accommodations in a beautiful setting.
Our stay at Runway Chalet was everything we hoped it would be. Beautiful sunrise and sunsets. Choices of beaches and activities were nearby. The house was perfect for our family and everything it was advertised to be.
Amazing Stay at Runway Chalet
My family and I enjoyed staying on North Captiva in this beautiful home. The views of the ocean and runway was amazing. The house had everything we needed. Greg, the owner, was very accommodating and helpful. We were able to bring our boat and dock nearby. Overall, we had a wonderful experience and would highly recommend this Chalet to others.
Would Stay Again
Greg and his manager, Sherman, were very accommodating and made us feel at home. The house met all our needs for the 5 of us. It is a quaint house and would recommend for a small family looking for a great getaway. Thank You, Greg!
