  • Relaxing place to stay

    "My wife and I stayed at the Coral Reef for two weeks. The house was quite comfortable and the island is very quiet and relaxing. I wish I would have discovered North Captiva while I was still working as it would have been a great place to decompress. We took advantage of the gas grill most nights and during the day took advantage of the beautiful beach which is a short walk from the house. As a bonus, the house has the Big Ten network which allowed me to follow my favorite team."

  • 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!"

  • Awesome Vacation Home

    "This has been one of our most awesome vacations ever. My whole family loved it. The house was so beautiful and comfortable. We all felt at home and Mr Tom was sooooo sweet. We definitely want to come and stay here every year. We thank God for helping us find this place and we pray that everyone that stays there will be as blessed as we were."

  • 20th Anniversary Trip

    "The Little Oasis is exceptional. Solidly built, recently renovated, romantically designed. Lounge chairs on the roof deck among the osprey, large hot tub and pool arranged with privacy in mind, large leather couches... awesome. We walked for miles every day down the beach, saw groups of dolphins and a wonderful variety of birds and plants. This vacation will carry my spirit through months and years to come. Thank you, Marie."
