About Chuck Brazik

We own two homes on the island Moondance and Stardance along with some friends. We are on the island as much as possible.

Chuck Brazik purchased this house in 2005

Why Chuck Brazik chose Florida

We love the quiet, fishing, kayaking and generally relaxing on the island. We live in Gulf Harbour on the mainland when we are not on the island.

What makes this house unique

We stay in both homes so we make sure that they are ready for you and us. Stardance has big porches with beautiful views of the Pine Island Sound. Moondance is larger and great for when our families come to the island.

North Captiva-hidden island oasis!

  • 4 of 5

My wife, two daughters, my brother's family of 4, and my parents (10 of us total), enjoyed our stay at Moondance. It comfortably slept 10 people with the 4 kids in the two twin bedroom w/trundles, and the three adult couples took the other three rooms. The kitchen was well-equipped, and the home was nicely furnished. The heated pool was kept at a steady 84-85 degrees during our entire stay (which is important as it remains in the shade the majority of the day). The unit came with two golf carts, and all the beach chairs needed to enjoy the beautiful beach areas of the island (where we spent most of our days). The only downside (if there actually had to be one) was having to take a short golf cart ride to the beach access points (which our family enjoyed the experience of). Also, the crow's nest deck on the top of the house provided true panoramic views of the island and the surrounding waters including the Gulf of Mexico and the Intercoastal Waterway. We utilized Island Girl to ferry out, and we were welcomed dockside by the very friendly owner who had a trailer in tow to haul our luggage and groceries to the house for us while giving us a lay of the land tour. The elevator in the home was an added bonus when unloading the luggage upon our arrival, and would benefit anyone needing wheelchair accessibility. We utilized the on island boat rental place for two days to explore surrounding islands, and to grab lunch elsewhere (which is not necessary if staying on the island). We also highly recommend Barnacle Phil's Restaurant and the ice cream shop above it. There were dolphins everywhere on both sides of the island, and the national park on the southern part of the island was an amazing and exhausting walk to the other end of the island. I don't recommend doing it in flip-flops and younger kids. LOL The feeling of being removed from large amounts of people, and a friendly island atmosphere radiated through my mind the entire week. It was a very relaxing and quite vacation. My entire family ALL walked away from the vacation and said that it was the best vacation by far of any that we have taken over the past 12 years together including stays at Captiva Island, various points in the Florida keys, Marco Island, Longboat key, and others. I would highly recommend North Captiva, and Moondance is a beautiful LARGE home for the price.

Owner's Response: VRBO-Please post this under our Moondance # 81871. This is a very gracious response and we were delighted that they had a great trip. The family had more people than we thought would be comfortable in our other home and with their permission moved them to Moondance. Thanks

Amazing stay on North Captiva!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, our three children and I had the most wonderful stay at Stardance. This home is just incredible. It is beautifully decorated, very clean and extremely well-stocked and appointed. From the moment we walked in, we felt right at home. It is located on the north part of the island, which seemed to be quieter. It has breezy decks on two floors (some parts screened-in) and a platform on the roof with fabulous views. Nothing is missing and everything is very well-thought-out. You get the adventurous feeling of vacationing on North Captiva with luxurious accommodations (comfortable beds, inviting and spacious layout, high-end kitchen, dual air conditioning, private pool, cable with all premium channels, two grills, two golf carts, hammock, games, and much more). The owners, Charlie and Suzanne, were so kind and very helpful. They gave us a lot of valuable hints on how to prepare for a vacation on North Captiva. It was hard to leave for everybody. We had such a memorable stay. We will have to come back! Of course, I would very highly recommend this home to anyone planning a vacation on North Captiva.

Fantastic Family Home

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at Sundance. The house was clean and well-kept. Charles was helpful but not intrusive. The view is beautiful. The pool is perfect. Loved the location. It's decorated well and nicely stocked. If you've never been to North Captiva, go and stay here. We'd never been...we'd never even heard of it until we stumbled across it...it was so fun. The pace is slow enough that you can really relax, but there's just enough to do to keep everyone happy.

Perfect Family Home

  • 5 of 5

We came to North Captiva Island for our kids' winter break. We are a family of 4.

This house is the perfect family house. We loved that everything was provided, all we had to bring was food. We relaxed in the house, at the super warm heated pool and at the beach. I loved how bright the house was with all the windows and we kept the french doors open a lot to let in the warm Florida breeze. The kids loved going around the island on the golf cart.

Charles was an outstanding host. He figured out how to get us off the island on our last day when the ferry was sold out. He just really cares about his guests and makes sure everything is right so that everyone is happy!

We highly recommend this host and the house, Stardance!

Wonderful ! Restful ! Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 ( two 60 ishs, two 35 year olds, and a 18 month old), just arrived home from a week at Charles Brazik's Property, Stardance! Charles was a dream to work with, very flexible and accommodating! His house is gorgeous, It has everything one needs for a great vacation: clean swimming pool with a once a week service, and an out door shower; thoughtfully stocked kitchen, no need to bring any paper products, garbage bags, soaps or spices. Shampoos and soaps in the three bathrooms, lots of bathroom towels and beach towels, chairs, and beach toys for the little ones. The only update that could be made is to the main first floor bath tub, which needs a bit of refreshing, however, it is spotlessly maintained. If you want a genuinely restful, quiet vacation in a most lovely setting, book Stardance!! The days are filled with walks on pristine beaches, shelling, swimming and snorkeling, eating, napping, reading, and exploring by golf cart. Did i mention eating and napping? LOVED IT!!!
