  • Great condo on bayside

    "The condo was great. It was very clean and fully equipped with everything you needed. The view from the lanai was lovely to sit and watch the boats going past. We even got to see a manatee from there. All in all was a perfect getaway and would definitely rent it again and recommend."

  • Awesome vacation!

    "Our family truly enjoyed your beautiful home. We spent most days at the many beaches in the area. It was nice to come back to this spacious home every evening and cook dinner. We all really enjoyed the pool and hot tub too... A huge plus for sure! We really hope to return soon! Thank you."

  • Great house in perfect location!

    "The Blue Cottage was a delight to stay in. It is tastefully decorated in great beach colors. The bedrooms are a great size and the kitchen is spacious. There was plenty of room for our nine guests. The house is located steps from Siesta Key beach and is in close walking distance to the village. We look forward to renting this place again in the future. However we will bring a few mirrors with us."

  • PARADISE FOUND!

    "The moment we arrived at Rainbows End we knew we had found paradise! From the comfy, and wonderfully decorated interior to the screened outdoor porch and side deck, we were hooked. The website pics are spot-on, but can’t convey the wonderful feeling you get when you actually arrive on that deck! It was most difficult to pry ourselves from that deck... not only did we take up positions in the 2 lounge chairs, watching for frolicking dolphin, soaring osprey and the ponderous but graceful pelicans, but also watching the ebb and flow of the Gulf meeting the bay, in front of the house. Sunrises brought out shore birds, and shell hunting, and the sunsets, were magnificent. We explored many of the island laneways by golf cart, walked the beaches and kayaked the bay and dock areas – even viewing manatees up close and personal in the cove. Surprisingly, we ended up dining in for all meals, using up most of our groceries and even had to take a ferry ride (NCR) to Pine Island mid week for additional supplies. But this was an adventure also! If you are looking for sun, sand, and surf and total relaxation, this is the place for you. This was our first VRBO rental. And we are happy to report that Rainbow's End is immaculate, fully equipped and positioned at the best spot on the island. From our first inquiry, Mary Beth was responsive and very helpful. (Remember, you’re not going to Orlando here!) She fully prepared us for the trip, explaining how one gets to North Captiva, advising us to get ferry reservations early and to make arrangements with the Publix market for provisions to bring with us (there is virtually nothing available on North Captiva itself). Having now spent a fabulous week there, the two best tips we can offer anyone considering a visit to Rainbows End are: 1) do it! and, 2) take half the clothes you think you’ll need – and twice the food (and drink)! We will be back! Thank you Mary Beth and Glen, for sharing your bit of paradise with us."
