  • Truly magical!

    "If the # of beds fits for you, this is the home to rent! Our family of 4 with 2 kids (3 and 5 yo) stayed for one week. Had no idea that this amazing place exists right off the Gulf coast of Florida - small island with no paved roads, everyone travelling by foot, golf cart, bicycle, kayak, motorboat, or small airplane, surrounded by wildlife including countless osprey, pelicans, dolphins, and the occasional jumping ray, just 30 min by ferry from the mainland. And Mary Beth's vacation home is the perfect place from which to experience it all - clean, organized, relaxed. She provides all the necessary paper goods; make sure to bring your own condiments, cooking oil, and any other staples, food & drink including water. Can get fresh seafood from Boats & Fun or have Andy's Island Seafood deliver by ferry during your stay. Definitely take advantage of the outdoor shower! Explored many secluded and deserted beaches; still most beautiful section of beach is right in front of the home - convenient too! The island is small and sparsely inhabited, so with a quick trip on the golf cart, you can get to Barnacle's for ice cream, or to the North Captiva Island Club to use their bikes or kayaks, or swim at the pool and enjoy the poolside bar. At Boats & Fun, a separate business next door to NCIC, you can rent a motorboat to go to Cayo Costa State Park, Cabbage Key, or Boca Grande - highly recommend renting a boat once or twice during your week along with a fishing pole or two. Based on rec's from the staff, we anchored in a cove at Cayo Costa to fish - caught 3 catfish in <10 minutes and watched dolphin swim in the cove. Also, for guaranteed dolphin spotting, hang out in the water around Cabbage Key. On the island, we awoke to the occasional pod of dolphins in view as we ate breakfast. Parked our golf cart one day at the entrance to the to the nature preserve that encompasses 2/3 of the island and hiked the long sandy path until we reached the secluded beach on the other end. A few things to note when you do this activity: minimal tree cover along the way; bring plenty of water as the temps are also 10+degrees warmer than at the house; there's a path that splits off fairly early on toward the right that will also take you to the beach. If you make it to the end of the path you'll need to return the way you came; can't walk along the beach back to the entrance. Conclusion: Rent this house, stay for at least a week, have a fantastic time - it's impossible not to!"

  • The perfect home on the perfect island!

    "We're a family of 5, with 2 teenage boys and a young girl, and every one of us has fallen in love with Moondance. We're already planning our THIRD vacation there! The home is huge, gorgeous and thoughtfully appointed. Beach is a short walk, or swim in the private pool. Elevator is handy for loading in/ out vacation supplies, 2 golf carts to explore the island. We've rented homes in different parts of the country as well as the caribbean, and thisis our favorite."

  • Very quiet / secluded - perfect for couple

    "If you really want to detach from reality, this is it. Very comfortable with just the right amount of practicality. Best beaches for swimming are on the other side of the island (2 minute golf cart ride). Fish from the beach 25 steps from your front door. Bring ice (store ran out one day). Gary is amazing... just a phone call away for any questions or last minute adjustments. We'll be back!"
