Sales Team Meeting Great Week !!

  • 5 of 5

The Sea Oats Estate was such a wonderful 1st class to home to have our winter sales meeting. The staff at Sea Oats was awesome anything you needed the assist in helping you get and treated with the professionalism and very friendly. We had a great check in and tour of the home upon our arrival The size of the home and the grounds gave everyone personal space and the décor of the home was so beautiful. We rented kayaks, went on a fishing trip and played golf. Having the golf cart to head to the beach was awesome. Using the fire pit at night to have meetings around the fire was a great time. The house had so many things you needed right at your finger tips and Captiva Island is absolutely beautiful, perfect location to get out of the winter cold. We held out meeting s in the media room and were able to put our presentations on the TV so everyone could see them in the room. We prepared all our meals at the house and the kitchen was fully stocked with every thing we needed for a first class meal. An added bonus was getting a t shirt with the house name on them a great gift to remember a fantastic home. The bedrooms were spacious with a magnificent view in every room. The Décor was just impeccable. Our team was so impressed with the Sea Oats Estate we would definitely return to have our winter meeting at such a gorgeous estate. This is a diamond find 5 star stay

Wonderful Week!

  • 5 of 5

Our company spent a week at the Sea Oats in October and we had a fantastic experience. The house is massive, fully stocked and impeccably decorated. It's the perfect company retreat location; the house and grounds gave us all plenty of room to spread out, while also providing a space that allowed us to congregate comfortably whenever we needed to. We held all of our meetings in the beautiful living room or on the back patio, and we spent most of our evenings hanging out in the cozy den or playing tennis and basketball on the private court. Our employees particularly loved the dock behind the house and the access to great fishing and nature watching. Most of them had never seen a dolphin in the wild before! Thank you Christine and everyone at the Sea Oats for making our stay so enjoyable! We hope to come back next year!

Memories for a Lifetime

  • 5 of 5

We had planned our trip to Sea Oats for over a year so that everyone in the family could be there. We had 21 people ranging in age from 3 to 78. The house is incredible, as is the customer service. The biggest help was the grocery shopping ahead of our arrival that had the house so well supplied that we made very few trips to the store. The weather was perfect - hot and sunny during the day, scattered storms at night. We had two ping-pong tournaments with "NCAA-like" brackets. All but the 3 year old had to play, and everyone loved it. Not many shells on the beach, but all shellers had goggles, and found wonderful shells off-shore. Our prizes: two golden olives and the largest horse conch I have ever seen. Also, it is so nice not to have a public beach adjoining the property. The big den served all eleven children (ages 10-22) together at night for TV and board games. We did order bikes, kayaks and paddleboards for daytime use in the bay. We all enjoyed sight-seeing on the island. It has changed so much over the years since we first visited in 1978. As a group, we did not go out to eat - too many all at once for a restaurant. Our college students, however, did enjoy the Mucky Duck. In summary, our stay at Sea Oats was everything I had deamed it would be and more. Highly recommend it for any large gathering.

Awesome Home & Location

  • 5 of 5

We had our 60th birthday reunion for a large group of college buddies (21). The house is very well appointed, lots of room even with 21 of us we had plenty of elbow room. Excellent condition, everything worked as advertised. The pool is great for relaxing and comfortably warm. The back dock is a fun place to mingle and throw out a hook into the lagoon (caught a bunch of catfish but threw them back). Easy access to gulf beach and boating activities. We rented bikes and the ride to the little village of Captiva is nice, a few bars and boutiques as well. We hired a chef for our stay and he was superb (Chef Palo Felix),great food and easy going manner would highly recommend. We loaded up at the local Costco and Publix for extra food and bev and plenty of space in frig for beer wine etc. Tons of dishes, glasses and pretty much everything you need is there. Plus plenty of towels and sheets were clean and comfy, there is a washer dryer too. Guest house is a nice setup if some want privacy separation. Manager Christine very helpful. Can't wait to return.

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing Sea Oats for your reunion and we are so glad you enjoyed your stay! When you return, we're going to be sure that you are using some live shrimp for bait when fishing the Roosevelt Channel - then you can reel in some Snook and Redfish - great fun to catch and even better to eat!
