  • Fell in love with North Captiva and Windswept

    "We just returned from our first visit to North Captiva Island and Windswept. We had an amazing time in a very beautiful place. The house is exactly as pictured and described, and Mark and Wendy are incredibly helpful and responsive to any questions and issues. North Captiva has some unique qualities, you need to take the water taxi to the island, and we elected to have our groceries delivered. There are only a couple of on-island restaurants, but with the large and well stocked kitchen at Windswept, cooking your own meals is a breeze ( literally, with the island breeze coming through the windows). Highly recommend this house and location, and Mark and Wendy as owners."

  • Trip with the Family

    "I travelled with my significant other and parents and had an amazing time at the Little Oasis. It was a perfect relaxing spot with all the amenities. January was a little chilly but the pool felt like a hot tub, which was incredible! The golf cart makes it easy to get around the island, especially for our little fishing spot by the airport strip. The three days at the Little Oasis on North Captiva Island were the most enjoyable of the whole two weeks spent in Florida. Thanks Marie!"

  • Relaxing family holiday

    "Travelled to North Captiva with the family for my wedding on the island in April 2015. Everyone was blown away when we walked into Runway Blues. It was exactly what we were hoping for. The home is tastefully decorated throughout and having the separate guest house meant everyone had their own space. We would come together on an evening to enjoy a meal either in the main dining room or on the balcony. Watching planes taking off and landing from the top balcony was brilliant. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Tom was excellent, going above and beyond his duties to help us when we needed him. North Captiva is a hidden gem in Florida and my parents are already planning their return visit!"

  • 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."
